Weight 8st 8

So today is my last day of AL and maternity leave. I am writing this blog retrospectively and using MFP to remember what I ate. I did quite well considering by Thursdays I usually let go. That's why I fast MOnday's and Wednesdays.

THe days food looked like this

Bfast - coffee, tea
Lunch: frozen veg, boiled with cauliflower rice and soy sauce (80cals)
Dinner: scallops (70), frozen veg( 90), homemade tomato sauce (70) red wine (288)

Total cals were 615. My carbs were a bit high at 41 but such is life. It was actually surprisingly easy. Felt extremely full after dinner which is quite strange so other than the wine, I will definitely keep that dinner in mind for fast days. I also think I over estimated the tomato sauce but better over than under on fast day. I give the day 8/10

Yesterday marked the beginning of a new era, as it was the first fasting day since I declared that I would be switching to 6:1. That means that the week would begin no differently to how it began under 5:2 and that meant going to an Aquafit class on an empty stomach. I had real problems with sleeping on the previous night, and I didn't manage to sleep beyond 4am, but the Aquafit session still went really well.

Lunch consisted of the usual scrambled eggs with two slices of cold meat, and I had a piece of meat with some salad for my evening meal once again. I found it a bit difficult to get to sleep last night but once I got to sleep, I didn't have the same problems as the previous night in terms of staying asleep and so, I didn't wake up until after 6am this time after getting up on just a few occasions during the night to go to the toilet.

So far, all of this is standard fare and no different...

Managed to fast despite feeling very hungry today. Perhaps because I am now eating less on feed days it means I am hungrier on fast days. All part of getting used to it I guess. Hopefully feeling this rough is not the norm.
Today I have managed to get into my size 10 jeans. They are snug but I can sit down in them! I will weigh again in the morning and hope the scales are kind!

There were four people fasting at the class last night. They only issue I found was that my energy levels were significantly lower, it's difficult to say whether I would have worked harder but either way it felt great!!

Happy happy happy!

Well it's Monday and the excesses of the weekend are rapidly becoming a distant memory,

Excesses? Well actually I don't think I ate any more than I would normally have eaten. There was quite a lot of meat on Saturday but it was lean steak with a baked potato and yesterday I went out for lunch, yes it was a curry but the portions were not huge - about half of what you get in a take away so maybe I shouldn't feel too bad about it. Nevertheless I'm looking forward to the comfort and simplicity of a fast day.

The dog has hurt his leg - looks like a minor cruciate ligament injury and I don't want it to get worse. This means enforced rest for him which means I won't be yomping off into the sunset for a few days. It also means he is going mad. An 18 month old border collie has a HUGE appetite for hard excersize, if he were to write down "Hobbies and Interests" on a dog CV it would read "Running, Jumping and Climbing" so it's ironic that he hurt his leg getting off the sofa...
