I have survived another night and already broken the fast.
However, as I examine myself on awakening, this is the 3rd day in a row I have had flu like symptoms - a painful cough, and some muscular stiffness, which was exacerbated when I walked 20 mins up the hill to work this morning ( it used to take me 25). Im a little worried that for the majority of the time I am not eating enough - I know - simple solution to eat more, but really it isnt, as I could lose that tenuous grip I have right now on the whole matter. I am trying not to be a pig and in doing so am pretty sure I am creating too much of a deficit... how to stop is the question and increase the balance.
To make amends this morning - as I really feel awful like I want to just lie down, I had migraines yesterday and could easily see the same thing happening again today... so I made myself eat a bigger more calorific breakfast. I ate 2 eggs scrambled with some butter (shhh!), onions and mushrooms. Not bad, but no real carbs, I know. I have difficulty eating most carbs first thing in the morning in any case as I have a gastric band, so unless its potato and sometimes even that, it can stick and cause me a lot of discomfort.
Anyways... any sensible suggestions would be good.
I made a bigger lunch today too - a big salad with a whole can of salmon and a small can of sweetcorn mixed through it and a large tub of watermelon and some Quaker 90cal snackpack of something or other I threw in the bag!
Right, time to work now!
