Day 7

I had to be at work for at 8:45 in the morning. This made fasting quite difficult, as I woke up shortly after the sun rose and thus had to be awake a full 12 hours before I was able to eat or drink anything. This does take it's toll more than waking up at 10 or 11; even though it's only a few hours, those few hours make the day seem much longer.

As I've previously said, I've found that abstaining from food/drink has provided me with a lot more free time. This free time has been largely spent in the Adventures in Hi-Fi; which I'll go into detail about tomorrow. For now, I need to sleep. I have to be at work at 7am tomorrow, which means that I'm planning to get up at about 5:45 so that I can eat and drink before sunrise (7:11am - bless the Old Farmer's Almanac). So far, the source I've been using for sunup/sundown times isn't set for daylight savings time, so while I've been correcting for that in the evening (adding an hour to the time is says), I've been forgetting to add an hour in the morning. Because of this, even when I've been awake that early, I haven't eaten past 6am because that's when I thought sunup was. It was an oversight on my part; and one I don't intend to make again.

What a delightful discovery; the sun rises and hour later than I thought. I get to eat breakfast more often! Now: sleep.
