Day 29 (3)
This is the beginning of the fifth week of the fast, day three of the fruit and veggie liquids part of the fast, with three and a half days to go until I begin to chew food. I’m glad to report that I have gotten my energy back thanks to the nutrients in the fruit juices and veggie liquid soups I’ve been consuming. But, surprisingly, my weight this morning was only two pounds up from the low point a few mornings ago at a 30 pound weight loss since day one. I guess that’s because much of what I’m consuming is just going through me as water; last night, for example, for probably the first time ever, I woke up every two hours, four times, needing to relieve my bladder.
However, I’m not complaining. In addition to getting my energy back, I’m also able to do the voter turnout phone calling that is so important. I spent two hours doing so last evening, and I plan to do about four hours of it today and four hours tomorrow.
I had difficulty getting the Our Revolution system to work for me last evening, so I went to Indivisible, which I used to do phone calling back in September, and I was surprised that there didn’t seem to be any way to connect with doing that work at their site. So I ended up going to the Biden/Harris site and quickly got myself connected and on the phone to voters. It was strange to be following the script and saying to everyone in Florida that I was calling that “I’m calling for the Florida Democratic Party,” given that I’m a progressive Independent, not a Democrat, but it was a tactical compromise for the greater good that I had no problem with.
Lots of nervousness all over as the big election day is just about here. Despite a number of reasons to be nervous, I continue to believe that the good guys should win, if all of us do everything we can to turn out the progressive and liberal and decent people vote. There are more of us than there are of the people taken in by Super Spreader Don, including in most of the battleground states.
