This is just my second fast day and so far so good. Drinking lots of water with fresh lemon juice.
Exercise wise, usual amount of dog walks, and 8.5 miles on the treadmill over 3 sessions.
Weight 9.96lbs overall loss 1.8 lbs (almost back to where I was on 25/1)
Waist 31 ins no overall change
Hips 39.5 overall loss 0.5 ins
Thighs no change
Fat % 34.4 0.3% loss on last weeks new figure I think.
I know the point of this diet is to not count calories on your feast days and that's great for me, I can do without the obsessiveness that comes with weighing/measuring/stressing over every single calorie that goes into your mouth. However, I do kind of worry that this won't work if I eat like I've always eaten the other 5 days a week. I don't eat excessively, I get full up very quickly, but I do eat junk. For example, on saturday I had a chicken breast burger and chips for breakfast/lunch from Wetherspoons and then had a curry for dinner. I don't even want to know how many calories I ate that day!
So I'm thinking I'll start making some healthier choices at the weekends. Whenever I cook, I will always cook something healthy and use wholefoods. Maybe that balances out my junk food love!
Today is Monday and it's fast...
Now, I have a cupboard of treats, bars of chocolate, mini muffins, biscuits. Talking about biscuits, I used to have to BAN biscuits from the house because I didn't have any control over biscuits. Open the packet and I would eat the whole packet, to myself, dunking them in tea and whoosh, 10 minutes later they were gone 700kcal+. Half the time I didn't remember or realise I was eating them. But now, there are 6 packets of biscuits in the house, I have eaten 4 biscuits in the last week, four individual biscuits, not four packets in the last week.. This would have been unheard of in the past. We have had to stop buying in...
I told myself it was all ok, because I planned to fast today BUT I'm not feeling the greatest (sharp headache, slight nausea, very tired) so I just had a coffee and soup, essentially breaking today's fast at only 3:30pm. I'm trying to decide if I'll keep today as a relatively low-cal (but not quite fasting) day...
