I gave myself the day off on Saturday. No calorie counting, a bit weyhey I suppose to celebrate, but also I had resolved that it’s ADF all the way to Christmas now.
Liquid fasted yesterday. Went very well:
Carbs 28% (26g)
Fat 65% (27g)
Protein 6% (6g)
Breakfast bulletproof coffee. Lunch and dinner carrot and red lentil soup. I made enough for tomorrow's fast day.
Plus yesterday's exercise was chest, shoulders, tri's and abs in the gym, plyo’s this morning and I also have a yoga class too. I didn’t train on Saturday hence me doubling up today, but did my steps. I also did double duty on Friday but didn’t quite finish the second workout as I was feeling a bit wobbly towards the end of it and I didn’t want to compromise my form. All this training is a bit unprecedented for me.
I have increased my weights t...
When I woke this morning I was so very tempted to have another fast day but resisted the temptation as I would really like to know how 5:2 works for me first, instead of doing my usual hell for leather give it all in fist week or 3 then loose motivation and or will power.
So I am defiantly going to stick with 5:2, I am still a little undecided weather to do Monday &...
Planned it out with what I had in my pantry. Boiled egg to start (waited till 10.30am), tuna and cucumber for 'lunch' going to wait till 2.30 and go for a walk as well. Then I have half a banana to help me hold out till dinner tonight which is malyasian laksa soup. All totaling 475 calories, which is a bit under.
I am surprised I am feeling quite good so far. I havent done the no eating thing since I was a teenager, but it is refreshing and I am enjoying the control. As people say it is refreshing to know that it is only for today. I anticiapte that it will feel better than the constant dont eat more than 1400cal I have been on for about a year.
Looking forward to getting into a rhythm and pattern of it.
Fasting is still OK but it's more a case of "bother I don't get to have my favourite breakfast today" than anything. I'm trying to turn it around to think "My favourite breakfast is going to taste really good tomorrow." And it does! I'm finding on food days I'm not even getting close to the calorie allowance and I'm feeling completely sated. What is great is that I can have a treat if I want and I know it'll be ok. That's the great part, no guilt.
The thing that amazes me is that I can exercise quite vigorously on...
I am pretty comfortable with twice weekly fasting now. Last week we went to Hobart and had a counter tea with friends. I fasted. I had a miso soup at Ross and then a rocket salad with roast lamb for dinner and NO WINE. That was the only slightly hard bit as everyone else was enjoying a good red. Still, I felt great that I had managed to stick with it.
Today I don't feel at all hungry. I have forgone the Miso soup. I wonder if Summer...
