Day 7 of fasting

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Ramadan started last Friday. Just to recap, it means not eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset.By the 3rd day, I have dropped 10 lbs.

On 4th day, I dropped only 0.2 lbs.

Which means, I have been hauling 10 lbs of water weight. emoticon

I am keeping up with walking while fasting. I can get 1 mile to 2 miles on the days I do it. I can do it comfortably if I walk at strolling pace of 21-23 min/mile. That's ok. I am getting some exercise in. As long as I am moving, I am doing ok.

    I lived in Malaysia before and it was hot all year round. It's doable though it was a bit harder with the heat.

    I have never knocked religious fasting, but I honestly can't get my head around not drinking water in the summer in Florida all day long. It is just way too hot, even inside with the a/c on.

That being said, I'm so proud of you for continuing your walking and the hard work. Maybe Ramadan will be a well-timed jumpstart for you! Keep strong, my friend!!

    Rockinmom, I do feel much better after losing the water weight. It explains why the scale bounced around so much one way of the other every other day before I started fasting.

    Right now, the sunrise is around 4:45am, and set around 9:02pm. I wake up at 3:50am, eat and drink at least 4 glasses of water. Same thing after breaking fast. And drink plenty in between. I get at least 10 glasses in daily. :)

    How do you eat/drink during Ramadan? Do you drink water in the evenings? Is it close to a gallon?

    I bet you feel better, dropping that extra fluid! Way to go getting your walks in. It's hard to do when fasting.
