Today I'm Fasting

I have to say that fasting is not something I'm good at.

It's lunch time, and I've been yawning for the last two hours. Who knew not eating would make you sleepish? I need food fuel! I'm loopy. I pretty much feel like my brain is not attached to me. A drunken state would be better than how I feel right now.

I've heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I believe it!

Why am I fasting? I have a doctor's appointment. I know they'll check my cholesterol. They always ask, "Have you been fasting?" They can't get good results if I haven't been.

I make all my appointments at the end of the day, so I don't miss class. Big mistake here. This would have been one appointment that would have been better first thing in the morning. Appointments for this doctor are made a year in advance. Crazy if you ask me.

Why I have to go in right after the holidays to check my cholesterol just is horrible!

Have you ever had to fast? How did you do?

Fasting is very hard in the beginning. After several days, there is set a good feeling. It is called Fast high.
Is it really good to fast for cholesterol?
I wish you good luck at the doctor and a nice evening, Wieczora (◔‿◔)| My photoblog

Fasting Sucks! I have to have colonoscopies every few years and there is not eating for almost a full day. Living off liquids suck! The first thing I do when I wake up is tell Jason to bring me food! lol.

Hope your results are good!

I have to go in every three months. I always make my appointments for eight, when they open. Get it over with , but then I don't have to work anymore so I am fortunate there.

I try to make my blood tests on a Saturday morning about 8:00-9:00 am. I could never go that long without eating. I find it so much easier to get it over with on the weekend so I don't have to worry about going to work. I am glad I have a blood center close by that is open on Saturday morning.

I am useless without my morning cuppa! Wonder how the Muslims do it for an entire month during Ramadhan!

I had a colonoscopy last year and had to fast for 24 hours. It sucked! lol.
