Water Fasting Day 3: I’m Tired

I feel like I haven’t eaten in 3 days! I keep passing out¬†ūüėā

The Day’s Events

I had some trouble sleeping in the night.  I probably slept at 1am and woke up at 6:30am.  Also I think I woke up a few times in the night as well.  Not very good sleep, but I woke up just fine at 6:30am.  After my morning reading of emails, checking instagram, checking on messages, measuring my body stats, I felt pretty tired.

I also finished up the podcast S-Town. Very well told story of a complicated interesting crazy man. ¬†I have a lot of respect for people who are accomplished in their field and I love stories of complex human psyche. So I very much enjoyed the story of¬†John B. McLemore, the eccentric¬†horologist who is a depressed crazy genius. ¬†Check it out if you haven’t already.

I did accomplish one thing that day.  I am currently in Manila with a tourist visa.  My plan is to somehow stay 2 years here.  Well, the default tourist visa is good for 30 days, but apparently all you have to do is go to the Bureau of Immigration and fill out a form to request staying longer and pay 2230 PHP ($45) to extend your visa for another 29 days.  The good news is that a Bureau of Immigration was only a 10 minute walk away.

So I got my daily sun and exercise by walking to the Bureau.  When I got back at about 3pm, I was tired!  I passed out from like 3 Р6pm, then my partner came home.  I woke up a bit to talk to her and I think i passed out again from 7 Р8pm.  Then we officially went to sleep at about 10:30pm.

Water Fasting Events

  • Mainly i was extremely tired today. ¬†I didn’t sleep at night that well and that may have contributed.
  • My right eye, which is one of my conditions i’m hoping to heal wasn’t feeling that good that day. ¬†I think I’ve been over using it on day 1 and day 2, trying to use the computer too much to write my blog entries. ¬†So i’m gonna cut down on some computer time.
  • I’m mesmerized by youtube food videos. Particularly Japanese street food videos. ¬†I mean i’m usually interested in them in general, but during the fast, they are truly amazing. ¬†It looks soooo good. I can’t believe it’s only been 3 days. >_<
  • I only drank about 2.5 L of water today. ¬†I’ma try to pump those numbers up. ¬†I’m also running out of water. I hope the water people deliver, because I don’t know if I can carry that much water home. Also I feel bad to the taxi driver to take me like 4 blocks.
  • My mouth tastes terrible. ¬†My partner also mentioned my bad breath. ¬†I feel bad for her as it appears i’m just staying home, wasting time, looking like a bum, and I have bad breath.
  • I dropped another 2 pounds bringing me down to 165 from 170 in 2 days. ¬†At least the weight is coming down. ¬†I would personally like to be 150lbs, but i do hear you generally gain back a lot of the weight after fasting. ¬†I will try to incorporate more working out to maintain some of the weight loss.
