...did NOT ruin my fast!
First of all, a quick clarification:
I am not doing a 25 day fast, because I have roommates and they have feelings and those feelings are often wrapped up in my well-being and happiness. Thus... They'd freak. :P
However, I AM doing three sets of five day fasts, and only eating up to 350 calories a day on the weekends. In addition to that, I'm working out an hour a day... Which I know isn't a lot, but considering I wasn't working out at all before starting the fast, it can't hurt. :)
Now, on to the good stuff!
I'm in a co-ed business frat (Delta Sigma Pi), and we have rush this week. That means lots of social mingling with food and alcohol present. As every Ana knows... That BITES. (haha, pun intended...)
I coolly ignored the brownies and hot chocolate, passed up the Doritos, hardly glanced at the cheese cubes...AND THEN: Some ho decided it'd be cool to hand me a chicken strip with Raspberry Chipotle Ranch Dip on it.
Now, I don't know if you've heard of such a thing, but I'm not going to post a picture of it because it would be triggering to anyone with a stomach. The point is, it's uh-may-zing.
I held it in my hand, calculating calories in my mind, justifying taking just one bite...
And then I promptly dropped it on the ground. No chicken strip would do ME in!
During the tumultuous cleanup and subsequent, "Naomi... You may be a bit of a klutz!", no one offered me a replacement strip, and when I left the mixer I left with dignity and a happily empty stomach. <3
Also, some chick somewhere appreciates my abstention.
I hope that all of you have a similar mind-over-food victory today, whether practicing or recovering!
Good luck, beautiful ladies! <3

Smileyfreak and Scarlet- Thank you both, and you're totally right: Meshak would think I was beautiful even if I were a fish with fur!
Africana- I know I don't have to fast, but that's just an easier solution than eating appropriate amounts. I hope your plan is working for you, as well!
TheLittleFlower and Bl33ding Truth- I'm so glad you found me and that my blog makes you happy! ^_^
Sairs- You're welcome. <3)
