In a nutshell, I'll be waking up very early and eating two meals a day. After noon I will only be consuming liquids such as tea. I will be spending a good amount of time doing meditation in the morning and also in the evenings when I don't have other obligations (such as class). I will not be attempting the vegetarian lifestyle at this point because I feel that I will need the meat protein in order to keep my energy levels up, however, this might change. If I find that I'm having too much trouble focusing throughout the day I will change the schedule around to start at 5:00 instead of 3:30 (as seems to be standard for Tibetan monasteries). I'm basing this schedule on the schedule that I've seen for certain monastic orders including Vietnamese and Thai.
I also plan on keeping a journal of my activities and feelings which I will share on here. I think I'm going to start with just having the two meals today and see how it works for me.
