My Reclaim-Rebel Wellness Journey (Day 7)

Folks, day 7 was WATER-FASTING DAY!  Something I have never, ever done.  The entire day was spent consuming nothing but plain and/or coconut water.

Started out pretty well until I got to around noon time.  The growling in my stomach began.  To rectify that, I simply drank more water until I was full.

A wonderful flush for the kidneys for sure.  Many, many, many visits to the bathroom.

I stayed away from pictures or discussions of food because I knew that being as hungry as I was, it would have been easy to grab something...anything in sight.

Carried on until around 6:00pm then I started getting a slight headache along with a lethargic feeling.  I simply told myself that the best thing to do at this point was to go to bed early.

I did exactly that, so by 7:00pm I was out like a light!!

I woke up the next morning feeling so proud of myself for sticking the process out and for rewarding my body (particularly as a woman over 50) with this wonderful flush and for allowing my stomach muscles to relax for a day.

The next go-round is the fruitarian segment, where I eat only raw foods--nothing with any form of heat applied to it--which would mostly be fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

  • You did such a great job, Mom! I'm so proud of you for committing to this!
