So very deliberately starting in 2015 I made a special effort not to fast. It was so very hard, but I knew deep down that I needed to address my relationship with food as a priority before it gets completely out of control.
The first thing that happened was that I read this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens ... t-fat.html and made a start. There is nothing earth shattering about this plan apart from the fact that there is alot less food than I have been eating in this past...
2 v small pieces of Christmas cake (basically part of the tops I chopped off the tin can cakes I made to get them to fit in the tub)
5 pieces chocolate
Donner meat & chips with salad (takeaway)
Flax crackers with cream cheese
1 Choc eclair(someone wanted to go halves on a box)
small piece of homemade fudge(for testing purposes)
2 ginger biscuits (homemade)
1st - lie on my right side
2nd - turn over to my left and then 5 seconds later my tummy follows
Then I repeat all over again and again and again (get the visualisation). I eventually fall asleep on my left side. Now when I've been doing this bedroom gymnastics everynight my body seems to be more responsive. In other words when I turn over it's not so much of a mountain to shift
Now, my hubby steals all of the bed (seems like it), I feel like I have more room . So yay, this is a better way of life
Repairing Tuesday ,Thursday and 16/8 3 days a week
Ok so it's a loss and I'll take it. Better than nothing. I wasn't able to do a fast yesterday and in fact while I easily made it til 2pm before starting to eat, I had a scary experience later on. So basically I had coffee all morning and then lunch. I then had a couple of boiled sweets and went home. I felt fine and decided to walk the dogs for 10mins and intended to have dinner then. While out walking, my blood sugar took a terrible dive, I got the shakes, saw white in front of my eyes and basically had hypoglycemia. I used to get it years ago on diets but it's been a long time. It was getting worse and worse even though I wasn't hungry. I got home and basically had to put a load of crap into my body to try and remove the feeling, so my food went as follows:
7am: coffee with milk
12pm: fizzy water and coffee with milk
2pm: brown bagel with 2 easy singles and butter
3-5pm 3 boiled sweets
645pm: half iceburger,...
Fast forward to 05/12/2012 when I became a grandma (I'm actually YiaYia) to the gorgeous Ethan. I WILL NOT loose out on being with him for as long as I possibly can.
I hope 5:2 will help in my new way of life.
