Easter damages minimised

by juliusi on 02 Apr 2013, 08:35

Well Easter is over and with my great surprise I jumped on the scale hoping that the last 4 days of feeding didn't do too much damage and with much surprise the wight gained over these days is of only 300g, which of course is great. I ma very happy about this because most important I looked very closely on the amount of food I was eating and above all choccolate, whici I ate but not in industrial quantities. I even had last night coming from my parents house a stop over at McDonald's (can we use this word here :razz: ). Great!!
I usually have my fast days on Monday and Thursday, but I am shifting the 2 days to Tuesday and Friday this week so today I am going for my 6th fast. I can't believe how fast time passes. I am in my 3rd full 5:2 week and have lost so far 2.6Kg. I feel lighter and I am disappointed I didn't measure my waiste at the start, but I already know my clothes fit better than mid March, so it is ok.
Today I haven't brought anything to snack here at work. I thought to buy some fennel as I usually do at the shop once I dropped my son at school, but we forgot school is closed, so took him back and didn't buy anything for me. I hope I can resisit till lunch time trying moreover to squeeze in an hour of training. For various reasons I didn't train while at my parents and I am quite disappointed about this, but couldn't do differently.
With regards to training I read this morning an article in the Italian news about a reasearch in an American university about how training in the morning reduces the need for food. I haven't found the origianl article, but here is something in English for those interested: ... tivation.0
If I find the way to create a post in the forum (I did it once but don't know how to do it again) I will post it there as well.
Well that's all for today.
I am a happy person and looking forward to drop some more weight in the next days.
Ciao, ciao, J
