It is the first Monday in Autumn, here in England, this is also my first blog on this site and I am starving. Have been doing this diet or way of eating since February and today is a struggle.I began the day on a scrambled egg, one herb tea and one orange juice. I then went to work which was three hours of gardening - raking,weeding and cutting back all manner of herbaceous shrubs. This work is like going to the gym - lots of stretching and bending with my head next to my ankles most of the time. When I arrive home, I am knackered and would love a sandwich or piece of cheese. But, I have to resist because it is Monday. Somehow I have to make it through until teatime feeling famished. It is hard not to have a nibble, instead of going to the cupboard, I walk to the loo and stand on the scales.Weight has gone up since last time but on the bright side, I still have to make two new holes on my leather belts - one for now and one for next month. This is a better gauge than those scales anyway...

In the stair cupboard there is my favorite choccy bar, three of them to be exact but I might only have one . . .tomorrow of course! Thornton's Cappuccino Bar, those three words make me drool, I am quite controlled in the sense that I would never eat three or even two in one day.I know that a bar is high in fat and calories but I can not be exact without fetching one and letting you know the precise amount it contains . . .and then I might end up eating it.I must not go to the stairs cupboard, I hope it does not snow or I could freeze without my coat!
Sometimes the scales still fib, because I know I am losing weight or maybe it just has moved from my tummy area to somewhere else.My...

Okay, so I have made it through my first fast day and it wasn't too bad really. However I did find it hard to concentrate... is this normal for a fast day or does this improve?
