Contrary to what the last blog post was (or wasn’t suggesting) I didn’t die while fasting – I just lost 7kg and the will to finish the 100 day blogging challenge (call it 95% success)

The last time I held fast must be around 18 years ago. I remember deeply enjoying the experience (and missing the act of chewing the most) and I […] Read more – ‘6 – fast’.
