Raw Milk Fast - Day 6

Last of a long work weekend.  Mostly long because I wasn't prepared for working my normal weekend while fasting.  Will be ready by next weekend.

Busked outside of Scooters today.  It's my preferred place on the Plaza.  I like the people, not so many I get overwhelmed, but enough to keep me busy.  It's nice to have time to interact with all the folks.

b/p  117/74
energy - good most of the day, but I kind of faded a bit in the evening.
allergies - much  much less.  Some minor congestion when I woke up and followed by a couple of bouts of congestion, but very few actual sinus problems
exercise - balloons, balloons and more balloons  I did mention that my job can be physically demanding, right?

After work we met up with the oldest boy. He works at a pizza joint and got us a nice gluten free pizza for my husband and daughter.  I thought it would be harder to resist a good pizza, but it really wasn't a problem at all.  I'm finding my cravings are very reduced.  

Another very happy side effect is that I am seeing a more dramatic reduction in the size of the tophi on my finger.  It's noticeable and changing size more rapidly than I expected.

Some weight loss too.  I always lose/gain weight in my face first, so you can see the change in these two photos.  

The front camera on my phone is kinda crap, so the quality is grainy.  Guess that's what happens when you drop it a zillion times.  Still I think you can see what I'm talking about.
