Maybe both, but I'm still working it out in my head. So here is my first progress report, which is also my first blog entry...
After a good beginning, doing my first fast on Christmas Eve and fitting in 4 fasts before the New Year, I was looking at my tracking calendar today and realised I've only done 1 fast this year, so far!
The first 5 days of the year was spent camping and kayaking in extremely hot weather. I had not planned to fast then and did not. Back to work on the 6th and my first fast day of the year. It went well, with work keeping me way too busy to even think about being hungry.
But then I fell into a hole called PMS. Not all months are the same and this one has been a particularly bad one. The migraine started on Wednesday and continued through Thursday and Friday. All the pain med combinations I tried, barely put a dent in the pain...it was awful. And being the kind of person I am, I worked through all 3 days, even when my boss asked if I didn't think I should just go home.
So the planned fast on Thursday did not happen, mainly because I did not want to take medication on an empty stomach. I also missed 2 run/walk sessions on the Wednesday and Friday, so I'm feeling as if I'm a bit lost, especially since I now realise I've only fasted once this year!
But it means I am more determined to get 2 good fasts in this week and jump straight back into the C25K program. I'm up to Week 2, Day 3 next and there's no going back this time.
The good news is that I'm still actually 0.2kg down from when I started just before Christmas
Hoping for a "proper" fast week this week
