Intermittent Fasting Week 9

Friday, May 10, 2013

So then, Intermittent Fasting Week 9, huh? Yeeeeah... It didn't happen. For the first time since I started this over w months ago I have had a week without a fast. To be completely honest, I just haven't felt up for it. I've been feeling really tired and a little ill this week so I thought I'd give it a miss.

The book says that as this is a way of life and not a "diet" per say it should be flexible the way we have to be in the real world. This week I've tested that flexibility so next week I'm going the other way; three fast days. I've ready decided that Monday, Wednesday and Friday will be my fast days next week.

I'm aiming to be around the 190lbs mark by my birthday in a little over six weeks. I'll be 30 and I want to be in the great shape by then. This is however on only the secondary milestone I have. I'm also getting married in August next year and I'm aiming to be in the shape of my life. This obviously isn't just about those two milestones. This is about being fit and healthy for life.

Until next time...

scale had gone up a lb and came back down.
Will try to eat more today and then fast tomorrow.
Happy Sunday!

    Well this is great to read. I am at week 10 and I took the week off. I thought i was giving it up all my blog made clear but I woke up today feeling fantastic (deleted that blog and replaced it with a better explanation of how i was feeling) and I will get back to intermittent fasting on Monday. Good luck to you and I agree with what others have said...GREAT attitude.

    I need to read up on your blog about this fasting. I mean, I usually fast breakfast but that's because I'm a weirdo and like to workout on an empty stomach. Take care of yourself it sounds like you're doing the best you can. The rest is just a matter of time. :)

    Good attitude about it all. This is a life decision and commitment for you, including the life commitment you'll be making next summer too by getting married! Hee Hee. Hope you feel back to 100% soon and enjoy your weekend.
