Today's fast has gone well (yeah, the day's not over yet, but I'm feeling good about it). I'm getting ready to make my third cup of tea, speaking of which: my mom and I got a bunch of the most delicious loose teas EVER during our trip (we took a detour into town, cause we're clearly all about roughing it). So anyway, part of my excitement could be cause I've only ever had supermarket boxed teas, but these people had so many freaking awesome flavors (like caramel apple almond!) and I practically had an orgasm just smelling them (hehe, hyperbole alert!).
What I'm especially happy about is that they're super flavorful and don't taste like my typical idea of tea - much as I've tried, I just can't stand regular teas like plain green or chamomile or english breakfast - nor do they taste like slightly flavored water (which fills me with rage - I cannot stand when people put a lemon in my water, as that only provides enough flavor to be completely disgusting). What I'm saying is, these teas practically count as a meal (yet are free of calories). I am absolutely in love and will probably never go back to lame normal teas.

I also accomplished my workout for the day. Woo! I've decided that since I'll likely be lacking in energy due to low calorie intake I'm only going to commit to running one mile each day, with an option to add a couple wind-sprints in if I'm feeling ambitious. For strength training I started today with 20 push-ups (lame!), 30 sit-ups, and 40 squats with a 45lb weight bar. Each day I'll add one rep to the previous day's total, theoretically building muscle without killing myself. ;) I'll also be throwing in some yoga/stretching after my runs to get some flexibility back.
Tomorrow I'll be getting my hair cut and colored, which will take a few hours and should make it super easy to fast as my parents will be at church in the morning and I'll be working in the evening.
Here's hoping I see a decent loss in the morning! (I've got measurements and progress pics to take)
