It has occured to me today that I have not had a migraine since I came back to 5:2. I had believed hunger was a trigger but obviously not!
There are still people around me who think fasting is wrong and I won't lose weight due to my body going into starvation mode. I don't know what the scales are doing but today I have worn a size 10 skirt that a few weeks ago would go nowhere near me. That is good enough for me!
It isn't always easy, but it isn't as difficult as I thought it might be.
For example...take the packet of Mikado biscuit sticks I bought.
I was at the supermarket and saw the boxes on 'Special Offer' so I popped one into my basket. This was on Saturday. I wasn't planning on eating them on Saturday - that's one of my fast days, so I put them in the cupboard intending having them as a treat on Sunday.
Sunday came.....and went. I enjoyed some lovely rice pudding after my main meal, and then settled down for a spot of TV. After a while I remembered those biscuit sticks. Did I really want them? No, I wasn't that fussed to be honest - I might leave them until Monday.
Monday came....and went! I thought about the packet when I had a cup of tea - but decided I would prefer them later....and then forgot about them!
Tuesday came.....and went!!!!! I was engrossed in my knitting. I wanted to get the piece I was working on finished and ready for sewing up.....and so decided...
It is only 10:24am here in Miami, and i am a bit hungry, but i'm going to hold off till lunch to eat a small bite, and then my twin and I will enjoy dinner together tonight.
