Learning curve

This Fasting is definitely a learning curve. At first I was really scared of it, scared that I wouldn't be able to last without food, that I would feel faint, get headaches, forget I was fasting and eat. All just a little silly now.
I've come to realise after only 6 fasts, that it's not the fast that is the challenge. It's actually quite easy not to eat for the day. One of the challenges is when you do start eating for the day, staying in control and not just eating too much because you haven't had anything yet for the day. It's more a mindset, that I must need food because I haven't had any, than actual hunger.
Another challenge that I have yet to work out is the day after the fast. This week I have felt weak, dizzy at times and just out of sorts on the day after the fast Now considering that we are having another major heat wave and I'm dealing with TTOTM, I'm not sure if it is the heat that is affecting me , not enough water, too much sugar or carbs or the day before's fast. But I feel so amazing on a fast day, so how can that be?

So what I've definitely learned so far, is not to be scared of the fast, and to keep track of non- fast days too, to figure out what is going on.

Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.

2014 will be my year!
