Fourteenth Weekend Fasting Cycle and Home Project

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

This weekend I had a home project of putting stain on the fences using a sprayer. I worked on Sat and stained about 100 ft of fences in 4 hours plus a few trips to Home Depot. By Sat night, I got curious if the physical work would put me in ketosis sooner than last week. I checked at 10 PM and found myself in solid ketosis at 8.0 on the color scale. I was then 26 hours into my fast. This compares to last week when I didn't have any physical work and got into ketosis at around 42 hours. So I had the whole day Sun in ketosis burning fat. A note to self, get busy on Sat with any project and enjoy the fat burning on Sun while relaxing.

Mon morning the scale registered a good number. So the fat burning on Sun paid off. I continue to drink AMPK tea (Jiaogulan, lemon peels) throughout the week.

P.S. I started the spraying on Sat @ 8 AM and worked for a couple of hours, then I had to postpone the 2nd half until the evening due to the heat/sun. Not having to eat was a huge reason for the success as I didn't have to stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The ability to just keep on going is something I didn't foresee before I got into fasting.

    I have fast days when trying to complete a job. It is amazing how much time we spend eating then moving slower after from being sluggish. Sounds like you have accomplished lots.
