Fasting is not a new thing for me. I’m a Muslim. I always fast during Ramadan since I was 10 years old. The way Muslim fast is by not eat and drink from sunrise to sundown. In Ramadan we should do it for a month. We can also fast in months other than Ramadan, it’s optional. But why this time I’m choosing water fasting? Well, my doctor advised me to do water fasting to help my healing from Adenomyosis once a week. I started last month. I think there is slight improvement with the symptoms.
On my last ovulation day I was fasting. I usually experience cramps and back pain on that day, but when I was fasting, those symptoms were gone. So I wanted to give this fasting regime more shots!
Yesterday (day 6 before my next period) I started to feel slight back pain and lower abdomen discomfort. It’s a bad news for me. That’s why I decided to fast today, to relieve those symptoms and hopefully my body reduce the inflammation inside my uterus.
It’s almost noon. I feel a little bit weak and hungry. But other than that I feel fine. The slight back pain and lower abdomen discomfort has gone. I’ll give further update later 😊
Total water taken: 2L
I broke my fast half an hour earlier than what I scheduled. I have to go to bed at 10:30pm. It’s not healthy to eat too close to bed time. So here’s my breaking meal… Mango and dragon fruit!
