So, I’m well into day 4 of fasting, and feeling some heat. Like, internal heat. Doesn’t seem to be a hot flash though. My cheeks are a bit rosy and warm. Actually, my whole body is. But not the super-hot - hot-flash kind of heat. I’m taking this as a sign that some good stuff is going on internally.
And another weird thing. My eyes are extraordinarily colorful today. It shocked me when I looked it the mirror this morning. I have blue eyes…and they aren’t like the normal greyish-blue…they are freaking amazing bright blue! Can’t help but wonder if all the crap is getting burnt out of my body, and clear things up. Anyone else notice this sort of thing happening while fasting?
Wondering if the effects of fasting might be more pronounced or intensified now that have lost nearly 50 pounds. (40 more will put me inside my goal weight range; beyond that is just the cherry on top.) So, that just the intensity of the fasting now is what I’m thinking is causing these slightly weird effects.
As for fasting itself, feels like I am rocking this one pretty well while my husband is out of town. Without having to cook for him, it makes this so much easier. I’m trying to work through day 4 - because this is typically when the energy skyrockets for me. Hasn’t quite happened yet, so that’s a bit curious. It could be because Aunt Flo decided to drop in - unannounced - this morning. (I really do love not having cramps and bloating anymore, but I do appreciate some sort of warning shot - so as not to be caught off guard.) Might just take a nap, and see how we go.
Take care all - and please give a shout out - if you’ve experienced this kind of “weirdness” while fasting! I’d love to hear about it!!!
