Just as I got started again Monday's storm knocked out our Internet. Finally picked up new live box this evening.
I managed my fast on Monday but not today. Monday evening whilst the storm was raging and we had no power my elderly cat had a stroke, finally dying Tuesday morning. It has upset me greatly. She was two weeks short of her 19th birthday and had been with me from six weeks of age.
I will try again next week once my emotions are under control.

weight: 8st 10.75

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
9am ditt0
10am: ditto
12pm: fizzy water and coffee with milk
2pm: brown bagel with 2 easy singles and butter
banana
digestive biscuit
3-5pm 3 boiled sweets
645pm: half iceburger,...

I had my first fitness test a couple of weeks ago and apparently I am fit enought for the cops but not the army. I was happy with that :)
I am now attempting 5 weeks of high intensity kettle bell 20min workout which a friend of mine designed. Hopefully the end result is that I improve my fitness and muscle strength.

I must admit though that I definitely struggle to do this high intensity workout now that I am doing the 5:2 diet. I used to do it prior to staring 5:2 and never experienced the muscle fatigue and hunger that I get now.

I stopped working out on my fast days as I just found it too hard. I'd get home and want to eat the entire contents of my pantry cupboard.

After my second fitness test I am going to swap to doing long slow walks on my exercise days and some light weights. I think it will actually be a better fit with this diet.

Cheers

So have just finished my second week of ADF and my weight has fluctuated lots over the course of the week, but overall am pleased with 1.5lbs considering I lost so much last week. Suppose it's slow and steady from now on. I've decided to do 4:3 this week as I find it quite difficult to fast over the weekend so hopefully this won't have too much of a negative effect on weigh in next week......
