First day down, twenty-nine to go

Today was the first day we fasted for Ramadan. I was great this morning. I woke up at 5:00 am and ate Sohour before sunrise. The problem is, I didn’t drink much coffee because I was still half asleep and coffee right when I get up is not a good idea. So mom kept insisting that I should take Advil or some type of drug so I won’t get a headache since I am a coffee addict. I said, “no no, I am fine.”

I was fine until 11:30 am. That’s when it hit me. I wasn’t hungry because I don’t care about food. I care more about coffee and caffeine. So after a while I just kept yawning and wanting to seriously sleep. I went home and decided to pass by the mall first and my mom called and wanted me to grab some stuff. I was walking around the mall dozed off and very tired. So as I got home, I decided to take a nap. I was totally beat. We don’t eat till sunset, which was around 7:40 pm. So very long day.

Mom made lots of good food, however, when you have hungry men at the table, then things change. Perspective of food changes. Mom doesn’t want us to eat food with lots of meat and lots of salt. So mom made this very creamy soup as an appetizer. My dad said, “who made this soup.” Mom said, “why, me.” He said, “It has no flavour, where is the meat?” Oh the carnivorous men. If no meat in every dish, then it is not worth eating to them.

The table in the dining room was extended, we can add an extra piece in the middle to make it wider. We did that a few weeks ago when mom had a party and needed place to put all the food as a buffet. We never bothered to remove that extension. With it, the table is too wide and barely space for someone to sit on either end. So I am sitting and my brother was sitting on one of the edges, and my dad on the other. My sister and I were locked in. I don’t eat much, and I wanted to get out. So my brother was sitting there eating and so was my dad. I kept staring at my brother and thinking to my self, “FINISH EATING. COMMON. I WANT TO GET OUT.” Because the longer I stayed on the table, the more I nibbled on more food, and it made me really sick. So I need to take that piece off from the table cause seriously, I cannot do this for the next 29 days. It’s just not possible.

Now after eating, and consuming lots of candy and sweets, I can say my energy level is back up. I also took some Advil so my headache is gone. No more headache. Yaay. :eek:

  • I hear the first few days of fasting is hard but then your body becomes used to it. I just called Oman today to wish some friends happy Ramadan. Funny how the West is becoming more informed regarding this time of Muslims and wished that it had been received in a more favorable light (not due to politics or political agendas). I digress…but I wish you the best in your fasting.
