so here I am doing it again. the last time I ate was Thursday at 4 pm.
I experineced something strange on day 1 this time. I found myself with a nagging headache around 2 pm. By 7 pm it was more than nagging. by 9 pm I was walking out of a movie because the headache had given way to nausea and I wasn’t sure that I wasn’t going to be sick. I ended up throwing up. violently. like out my nose, violently. after that my migraine was downgraded to annoying headache again and it was almost gone by the time I went to bed at 11:30. now, did this have anything to do with the detox? I have no idea. maybe it was just an unfortunate coincedence that I got a migraine the first day I started the fast (this would be my third migraine ever). either way, I felt I needed to report it here.
Day 2: I felt great when I woke up this morning. just peachy. I did get hungry, and when I did I just drank my lemonade. when my roommate was cooking, the smell was quite tempting, so I went in the other room. no other problems. :-)
ok, i haven’t written in forever, but I actually almost have the sweater done. it was painful because at one point the directions were, “knit until it measures 15 inches”
do you know how boring that is?! it took me months because I couldn’t bear the thought of trudging thru Knit purl knit purl for hours.
aaaaaaaand then I got over that. I’ve got my 15 inches and now I realize I don’t have the right sized DPN for the sleeves. humph
oh, I forgot to say how far it is… right now I’m living up in Washington Heights and my job is in TriBeCa… so I can do Riverside Park the whole way. I did it once last year, and i think it took about an hour. not much longer than the subway, actually (I can haul a$$ when I want to!)
the other thing (besides stink) is the whole “now I have to get home” thing. either I leave early enough to make sure I’m home before dusk (not a problem in the summer) or I take it home on the subway (definitely troublsome with packed, rush-hour trains).
really, I just need to shut up and quit making excuses, right?
