    So I would have done a food journal yesterday except for that I burned my hand on steam/oil. Made the foolish mistake of trying to wash a hot pan with cold water and the oil and steam flared up and burned my hand... Wanna know something weird? All of the redness, all of the puffiness, and all of the pain are gone this morning. I prayed about it before bed because I was in a lot of pain before sleeping but I slept like a rock. I figured there would be at least some dead skin/open sores whatever but nothing. It's like it never happened! Crazy!

    So last night I attempted making falafel with the proper middle eastern recipe (leeks, parsley, garlic, dill, onion + chick peas) swapping the chick peas for ground walnut... it didn't work... they fell apart... I may try again though but using cauliflower mash as a binder. Lets hope for the best

    Breakfast- Bacon fried hotdog cut up in scrambled eggs, coconut milkshake

    Lunch- Steak, 2 cups baby carrots

    Dinner- (more like eating throughout the time between 6 and 10.) 2 hotdogs with mustard, 5 failed falafel patties mixed with heavy sour cream (30% woo!!), steak

    Exercise- 30 min barefoot walk with my cousin (she was just testing out new shoes and panting most of the way- very out of shape but sees me and wants to fix that for herself)

    Supplements- The regulars


    Today I will be fasting. We'll see how it goes I guess? Feels like my body just needs time to concentrate on my hand even though the hand doesn't hurt any more. Once I'm less sleepy and trust that my hand will no longer be a factor I will eat again. I did however take the regular supplements this morning so that I can have a bit of fuel to get the day going.

    I've done that before; however, mine didn't heal quite so quickly. Glad it feels better!!

    Feels great! Made it through the fast the entire day (outside of morning supplements and a coffee mid afternoon). Feeling good. Will decide tomorrow if I want to continue or not. Haven't really felt hungry since deciding to do the fast.

    I haven't yet been able to make it an entire day. Today's "fast" went until 2130 hrs. I think I ate my last meal yesterday at 2330 hrs until 0000 hrs. (If I remember correctly) and I was not starving when I ate, just slightly hungry.

    Today is the same as yesterday. Fasting again. Though I'm only going til 18:00 (making it a 44 hour fast). I did however supplement the regular supplements so I did get 240 cals of pure fat in that's more than enough to sustain me for the day. Not hungry at all but decided I'll eat dinner tonight.

    I also have a link to share. Be prepared for this one because it can be a tear jerker. I'm not much of a crier but I do get chills and trust me this gave me chills.

    Go Ecks! A 44 hour fast? I can't wait until I start burning the fat again to get back into IFing! I don't think I did any that were more than 20-24 hours or so, but it sure felt good when I did it! I also saw that link this morning and it totally made me cry. I sent it to a bunch of people and put it on Facebook!

    Glad the hand is healed so quickly! It's funny how prayer works

    Also, you gave me a great idea about the tattoo. The goal of having a great body has never ever worked for me for anything, but I have always wanted to be able to do a real handstand. The day that I can successfully do this, I'm getting the tat! I figure I will have to have a pretty nice bod by then to have the strength and balance to do the handstand. It may take a while, but I'm doing it. Yay!
