    Her record is 14 and she's already left at least one voice mail this a.m. Luckily, she doesn't text!

    I always thought the three season diet was interesting. It'd take some planning because everything out of season is so available in the markets!

    Yes, you are so right about the food. I have a feeling even the most perfect primal diet, the most perfect any kind of diet for that matter, wouldn't work if the stress level was too high.

    Okay, I'm going to get some light reading (German and Russian stuff not being the lightest in the world) after I finish the Night Watch series. Reading it in German. Love it. Russian literature, not to give anyone the false impression, is something I still and probably forever will always read in German, French, Spanish, or English. Russian is one hard language. Don't know why. Chinese and Arabic are easier for me, but I'm not giving up yet.

    Just made your thai cucumber salad, wow-zah! It's all gone now...couldn't stop eating it. I also made Judg's cantaloupe-cuke-feta salad, and ate that too. Guess it was dinner! Must go search out some protein now.

    I'll have to make up some more for work, hope I can stop myself from eating it all again. Funny, I have never eaten so many vegetables in my life.

    I'm glad you liked it. I'm looking forward to trying Judg's salad this week. Looking forward to lots, actually, as I AM HUNGRY.

    Yes, I am.

    Sat at the table with my family as they ate the delicious grass-fed beef tacos I made for them, and sipped my water, and was hungry.

    Hungry, I say!

    But the idea of breaking my fast so late in the day is not appealing, so I am going to wait until tomorrow morning. That will put me at 4 1/2 days, and almost two full days since I became hungry, which seems very respectable to me. I think I need to ask Mark if counting from when you get hungry offers any benefit. My thought was that until I get hungry, I am still feeding myself, just off my glycogen. I suppose, I am still just feeding myself, but out of my fat. Is there a difference for cell regeneration? That's what I am mostly interested in, in these fasts.

    I feel I could say I am doing these fasts for religious reasons (if anyone asked) because I am taking the possibility of cellular regeneration on faith. Oh, I know there are scientific studies, but there's nothing I can point to in my own body, right now, and say, 'see, here's an effect'.

    Those pesky cells. Just so small.

    Anyhow, dinner is cleaned up now, and I feel pretty confident that I won't go crazy, stuffing avocado and taco meat in my mouth.

    See y'all tomorrow!

    Good work and congratulations! You know, I think the best thing is that you are really thinking and integrating the whole process into your total experience. I am sure this is a very positive experience that will show benefits in the future.

    Speak. The universe is listening.

    Two interesting things.

    A few weeks ago, I was looking at my china cupboards. We have Blue Willow as our china. I really am fond of it. It was what we had when I was growing up, and I asked for it for our wedding china, and we've slowly added to it over the years. We don't have regular china and good china, just our Blue Willow, and I use it for everything. Some of the larger platters get displayed on our kitchen wall until we need them at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I was thinking, and said out loud, "I'd really like some more of the salad plates, and the cereal bowls. And the large round servers, and another oval server." Didn't think to mention my gravyboat, although I broke it a few years ago, and could use another.

    Yesterday, as I was taking my long walk (a bit TOO long, but I made it!) I was musing over my weight loss during the fast. I am not doing this for the weight loss, but when you are overweight, everything comes back to the pounds in one way or another, it seems. I was at 185.5 that morning, and was fantasizing that I would get down to 185 on Tuesday, and stay there. Then I laughed, because everyone 'knows' you don't STAY at the weight you get down to on a fast, you bob up a bit. So I said, out loud, "What I really WANT is to get down to 182.0 tomorrow, and only bob back up to 185.0." Solidly in the 185s, that's the first of my sequential weight goals! A nice fantasy to dream on during my walk.

    Another mile on, as I was walking through downtown, I stopped to look in the window of one of the little antique stores. Displayed there: a set of Blue Willow, with salad plates, cereal bowls, two large round servers, and an oval server. Plus a few other items. All at a reasonable price. The store was closed, but I'll be back there at opening time this morning.

    This morning I got on the scale.

    182.0.

    I am breaking my fast today and feeling very good about it. I was hungry through most of yesterday, on and off. I WANTED to eat, but I didn't feel desperate about it. Just wishing tomorrow would hurry up. I guess this is delayed gratification. Hmmm. I could get to like it.

    I have definitely planned some of the things I want to eat. A drumstick and some greens. That taco meat! I'm making Siobhan's Zuccini Thing for dinner tonight. And Judg's salad on Thursday. My traditional Wednesday sashimi. Other things will be added, but those for sure.

    So, here's the details of yesterday:

    Up at 5:30
    Vitamins
    Water: 16 glasses
    Walking: 170 minutes (!)
    Massage
    Bed at 9:00

    My energy was good over all. Some tired periods, but also some periods of zip, one of them during my walk, which was rather unexpected. Woke up this morning in a neutral state, but now, half an hour in, I'm starting to feel hungry. Will break my fast sometime after 9:00am.

    Hmmm, what to have first?!

    What a lovely dilemma! Enjoy!

    I love your Blue Willow story. We always used Blue Willow when I was growing up, a combination of inherited pieces, supermarket pieces, (Remember those? A different piece on sale every week?) thrift store buys. When my youngest sister got married, that was what she wanted, and so it is still being used by her family. Must be 75 years now.

    And all will be well -
