Day 4 Intermittent Fasting (IF) Journal

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Another successful day! I stopped eating at 8:30 PM last night and had my first healthy meal at 12:45 PM, a 16.25 hr IF. I was mildly hungry but bouncing off the walls with energy. I feel great! My final hour of IF included a 3.3 mi walk. I got to the gym a little later and did 15 min brisk walking (1 mile) warm-up + 30 min of elliptical, max effort + strength training (upper body) 10 sets in 20 minutes with no rest between sets. After dinner, I took another 3.3 mi walk. Tomorrow I hope to get to the gym and do more cardio (30+ min) and weights (lower body 30 min) + swimming with my son. I can't wait to start yoga classes again on Monday. I ate NO junk food at all today, all healthy foods. I ate 1675 calories and burned 880 calories exercising. I am finding IF really easy and invigorating!

    My average fasted blood glucose before was 80 mg / dl, normal range. I may very well check it at the end of my experiment.

    Should be interesting to see if you lose any weight with this.
    Too bad you're not recording your blood glucose... it would be interesting to see if those improved.
