Day 5 Intermittent Fasting (IF) Journal
Sunday, September 29, 2013
5 successful days down and counting! I had my last meal ending at 6:15 PM last night and my first meal today starting at 10:30 AM, a 16.25 hr IF. I was mildly hungry. I went to bed at midnight and woke at 2 AM and just couldn't fall back to sleep, so today was less productive than I hoped. I did a quick warm-up, then elliptical, then weight training (lower body.) I only did 12 sets of exercise instead of 15 since I was pressed for time. Never got the baby out swimming; he took his nap late. Then I got absorbed in the Kite Runner movie. I ate 2250 calories and burned 305 calories. I am down 3 lb in 5 days, just by changing my "eating window." Yes, some may be water weight, but it is still encouraging. This IF stuff is easier than I expected it to be and I find I can do 16 hrs, no problem.
