Special shout-out to *empty_pure, *Stacy, *kate fisher, *jd, and *Isobel, thanks so much for reading :)

So I started the fast yesterday weighing 107 lbs (<--this is why I hate going home) and today I'm back to 105.4 lbs. Why always 105 1/2 though??

The 36 hour fast was great. I wasn't hungry at all and I REALLY wanted to continue it today but of course, my roommate wanted to eat breakfast together. Sigh. I love her, but I DON'T WANT TO EAT! Having 200 calories today:

-1/2 cup Fiber One Cereal (60 cal)
-3 egg whites, boiled (51 cal)
-1 peach, large (61 cal)
-1/2 cup Trop50 Orange Juice (25 cal)
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
-3L water
-3 cups green tea

Total: 198 cal
Fat: 1.6g
Carbohydrates: 47.2g
Protein: 14.2g

Having the cinnamon with cereal was a little messier than I liked (considering I don't have it with milk) so I ate it with the peach which was pretty good :) Later in the day I'm going to "dip" the boiled egg whites into the cayenne pepper, thanks for the tip girls!

Btw, my doctor called me back about my blood results and turns out my cholesterol level is at 148 with the "bad" cholesterol (LDL i think?) at 62 and "good" cholesterol (HDL?) at 72. Healthy levels of total cholesterol are supposed to be under 200 so I'm feeling pretty good. Just looked this up, but apparently HDL levels above 60 means I'm somewhat protected against heart disease (and I'm way over :D) and less than 100 for LDL is optimal (and I'm way below!). Looks like I won't have to worry about my health for awhile~

Anddd my roommate wants to get sushi. I'm hoping she's forgotten about the whole potato thing by now, but great, a new obstacle. I know that it's really healthy (and I love sashimi) but I don't know how many calories they have!!!!!!

I've recently been researching about Apple Cider Vinegar which sounds pretty amazing. Basically its main ingredient, acetic acid, has been proven to stimulate the metabolism and lower blood sugar levels by 30%. I'm definitely intrigued.
