Day 2 Non Fast Day (8 weeks til hols)

by teddybear on 11 Jul 2015, 10:29

Weight 9st 7lbs

So yesterday was my second non fast day and it was easy to stick below by TDEE because now I am sick. My little boyis only getting over his sickness and I have gotten a nasty throat infection. This makes it hard to eat and I'm no too hungry anyway. I felt really awful yesterday. My fast day isn't til Monday at this point but I am limited to eating slithery slimy food as every feels like razor blades going down. I just tried to eat somne grapefruit but it stung me so badly that I couldn't. Obviuosly I'm not exercising either as my emp goes very high. So no exercise til next weekend to give myself a chance to recover. Also presume starving an infection is a good idea next week.

My day yesterday looked like this:

Lunch: Chicken wrap (500cals)
Dinner: Noodles (300 cals)
Snacks: 2 ice lollies & 2 squares of lindt (120 & 120)

Totals Cals 1040. I actually ate more than I thought. The noodles were very high considering the amount. I can only estimate the wrap as it was bought in a cafe. I didn't eat the full hing but it was full of oil.

Anyway, Saturdays and Sundays are always days off for me. We usually get a takeaway one of the days, although not sure how that would work out today to be honest. OH is at a barby tomoro so I'll just be fending for myself.

I give yesterday a 6/10 as while the cals were well under TDEE and it was basically a half fast I felt so rotten, it was basically cheating.
