|At the Desert Museum|
I went and visited the Desert Museum here in Tucson and saw some really cute animals. The heat was ungodly and I spent the walk pouring water over my head. Uphill walking was torture; the fast definitely influence my ability to take the heat and exercise. But, I enjoyed my visit.
For those wanting to understand more about the difference between fasting and starving and worry about the dangers for me, please read this: Fasting/Starving
The real key to when fasting becomes starving is when one's hunger returns with a vengeance and when your body runs out of fat and then has to cannibalize muscle. Right now, believe me, I still have enough fat to live on! (even if some of you are kind enough to say I am so thin...being twenty pounds overweight is not thin). When hunger massively attacks (if I get to the point where hunger has vanished) or I hit 130 pounds, I will stop the fast (that is if I don't wimp out way before then, like tomorrow).
Exercise: Walked for about forty minutes; felt pretty weak with the incredible heat and anythng uphill; sat down about five times.
Hunger: Really not bad but craving food like crazy.
Side Effects: Mild headache late in the day.
Mental Clarity: Still crap because I am thinking about how not to throw in the towel which is all I am thinking about.
