This week walked from Garsdale station to Kirkby Stephen, 13.2 miles, staring up at Mallerstang Edge with dark cloud boiling over it to assess if the walk between the 2 stations over Mallerstang Edge and Nine Standards Rigg, 17 miles, strenuous, just short of 3000' of ascent was still possible for me. Decided that it might just be; it would have to be a Saturday as the southbound train runs an hour earlier. Very pleased to do this walk in just over 4 hours and get to the station just as it...
I'm kinda tossing up between fasting tomorrow (Sunday) or Monday. I really want to do it tommorow, but I don't want to break routine. I kinda want to do both, but... well you know.
I've lost quite a bit of weight- 2kgs, I have no idea what that is in anything other than kilos, but I'm pleased with it no end!
I lost half a pound last week which I considered quite good considering I had 3 days of carb fest at the front end of the week. The BMI nudged down to 23.99 which made me laugh but its funny how good it made me feel to have a BMI of 23 something......
Fridays Fast Day Numbers:
Carbs 28% (30g)
Fat 58% (28g)
Protein 14% (15g)
Breakfast was a bulletproof coffee, lunch zero noodles with mushroom sauce and a large plate of broccoli and coconut water throughout the day. Exercise was only half of kenpo x because an old mate phoned me in the middle of it, so I went out for a long walk later and did about 12000 steps.
Saturday 1622 calories (upped deliberately because I have been having heart palpitations and wanted to get carbs and potassium into my system)....
That I can cope with 16:8 a couple of times a week far better than a stricter 5:2 twice a week. This is purely my view as when I am on a fast day it does affect me mentally and my sleep isn't good. I should add that I am using the power plate at the gym and doing a fast 10 minutes on the treadmill plus sit ups all before work.
My jeans fit me far better, still would prefer a size smaller but I have to learn to be patient and it WILL happen.
I am not binging on crisps or biscuits like I used to. I do eat more normally at the weekend as I feel I will give up all the good work if I don't have some treats.
So, I am continuing with this and I will lose all my horrible fat! ...
