    So I had planned a water fast

    for February but February came faster than expected :). In any case I'll be attempting to fast for the whole month. First 2-3 days will be smoothies and soups and then on to teas and water. Anybody looking for some support can link me. I'll need a lot if it too!

    Started water and tea fasting today.

    Happy to be taking some positive action. Drinking lots of tea and water. So far so good. Hoping to make at least a week, then have a mini break with healthy foods so I don't binge, then start again until I hit my target. Wish me luck!

    So, I have been eating way too many biscuits

    with all this stress, so decided self discipline may be a better way to handle stress. So I decided to fast, trouble is I decided after my morning cuppa, and whilst there were no biscuits, there was milk, so I have kind of cheated already.
