Making a bread starter take 2 – day 5 and 6

So when I checked my starter again it hadn’t quite risen to where I had expected it to.  The directions for day 5 called for removing all but 150 grams of the mix.  It also had pictures of what your tub should look like.  Mine looked like this…

It was essentially the consistency of batter with hardly any sign of activity.  I thought for sure it was done for but I fed it again and left it on the counter.  Day 6 it didn’t look much better in the AM, but by the night it looked like it had some how magically recovered…

This is what it’s supposed to look like!  So Im sort of going rogue at this point since I was supposed to feed it in the AM and didn’t so I fed it tonight.  Im hoping that this is a good sign that it’s working.  I really want to bake some bread with it!  If I can get it stabilized or at least acting the same way by tomorrow I think I’ll give it a shot.
