{February 15, 2010}   day 3 of water fast

OK. Day 3. The hunger is more or less gone (although I did have a close moment this morning in walking through the breakfast line in the caf; they had these Quaker fiber-choclate chip cookies that are about 200 calories but have always captivated my tastebuds), but the dizziness is totally there. I tried going outside for gym to do skiing, but I felt so dizzy I couldn’t handle it and had to ask to go to the nurse’s office. I felt really silly, too… I told my gym teacher a half-truth, that I hadn’t had breakfast. (Left out the rest of it, of course.) I’m feeling cold as well, but it could be from the school.

My hunger has subsided, but possibly because of the adderall I took (15 mg). I’m still not going to risk going to lunch; I’ll stay in the library and cram for my states & capitols test during 6th hour.

My goal during the fast (aside from getting down to 120ish pounds) is to catch up on my schoolwork! I need to:

  • criminal law chapter notes (1, 2, 5, 6)
  • Enviro Sci take home quiz &  questionnaire
  • type out Aldo Leopold excerpt AND Kat Chopin short story
  • (eventually) do Model UN report (Norway; which topic? check my email)
  • basic acting prep – both auditions this week & over by Wednesday! 
    • Soulstice Theatre: 1 min. dramatic monologue, 1 min. funny monologue, prepare full version of Stepsister’s Lament; print resume and headshot (Mon 15th and Tues 16th ~ registration comes at 6pm, first come first serve)
    • Lake Country Players: call in, ask about which part of scrip tis read in audition & which song will be sung; any chorus parts? (Feb 15th & 17th, auditions 7 to 9 PM)

…Staying away from food will be vital as well, especially where boredom eating is concerned. Out of sight, out of mind! I should visit the local college library and study there, not leaving til I have everything done.
