I finally got back to a 36 hour fast, with a body weight training session of about 1 hour and 20-something minutes this morning. Broke sometime after 10 am today.
It was tougher than normal, even getting home at 8pm. Especially when my wife started to eat dinner. That didn’t help. But I made it.
I went into the yard last weekend an got scratched by a plant. Used multiple phone-based plant ID systems on it. It’s some type of rose bush. Very hard to kill (you have to pull the roots). I was cutting a few stalks down so that I could get to some fencing so I could cut up the fencing, which the plant surrounds, and put it into a dumpster we had rented. (The fencing is falling down.) I’ve tangled with this – what I think is a – weed before, and got scratched. That was bad.
This time, it’s worse. Got scratched this time on my upper chest, and had to go to the walk-in clinic. Got steroidal cream, which I’m not sure how well it’s helping. We’ll see. May have to go the steroid pill route.
But what this meant was that I didn’t sleep great, as I keep itching and scratching.
