So I've been without food since Wednesday evening. Last thing I ate was a Caesar Salad at Pub Quiz. It's about 45 hours later and I can almost taste that salad. I'm so hungry.
Yesterday was much easier. I drank tea and water and some juice last night, but I didn't really feel hungry until this morning. I was actually a little uncomfortable this morning and my coffee made me a little sick. So I switched to tea and that has been it.
I was smelling everyone's lunch today. Usually I don't notice when other people are eating around me in cubeland. But I was very aware today. Even now, I can hear someone munching on cookies or chips or something - and I want to go steal one.
Has this been successful in a spiritual sense then? I think so. I'm very tuned in to myself right now - to how I'm feeling, what I'm hearing, smelling, seeing. It's a very heightened experience.
I wonder how this will feel tonight - when I'm at home and there is food around me, but I don't choose to eat it. This is really tough.
