Day 8 - I'm Sooooooo Bored

How bored am I?

I’m so bored with this fast I didn’t even blog yesterday. I took the day off from exercise too. I broke my string at eight days straight. Here’s hoping I can wrap this thing up on Friday and start easing back into food on Saturday. Chicken broth for breakfast, chicken salad for supper.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hungry or starved. I’m not craving. I just need a change. The lemonade is wonderful, so wonderful I’ll be keeping a jug on hand for everyday drinking. But even herbal tea taste like a 3 star meal after drinking lemonade all day long.

Breakfast = lemonade

Lunch = lemonade

Dinner = lemonade

Snacks = lemonade

I’ve started putting twice the amount of cayenne just to spice things up. (rimshot)

But what I need is something that can tumble with my tongue, massage with my molars, bite with my bicuspids, I need to chew, crunch and swallow. I need crispy, smooth, warm, salty and sweet…and….yes, even bitter. I miss bitter. I want umami. I want smell…something that smells like ocean. I want to smell a sauté of garlic, onion, celery and carrots…or chicken, a baked potato and bread. Even the smell of a simple Frito would be magical.

In 3 hours it’ll be 9 days since I’ve had my last solid food. I just hope this thing is over with in two more days.
