Day 5 of 10 Day Fast from kaleidoscopeiiis's log

Starting Weight: 153.4 lbs

Today's Weight: 143.2 lbs

Total Lost: 10.2 lbs

Woohoo!!! Down ten pounds! 1.8 lbs since yesterday. Granted, five of that was all the food I ate last weekend, but still!! The gym parking lot was so packed last night that I gave up and went home and went for a 1 mile run with my husband instead. 9:38, which is a good time for me! Took a BCAA pill afterwards otherwise I get sore for days and my legs take forever to recover. I was so slow on the first half, which is uphill, but we flew through the second half. I actually kind of miss running more than 1 mile, but I feel like 1 mile is a good distance when fasting. Long walks are nice, too. I've been sleeping better than expected. Maybe your body eventually gets used to longer fasts and starts sleeping better? Not sure, but I hope that is the case. Long day at work coming up today, but going to have a chill weekend.

Today's challenge is going to be that I am going to a political MeetUp tonight, and there is specifically going to be vegan food (I guess the organizer is also vegan) and it kills me to not eat vegan food at events because it's so rare that it's available (other than stuff like chips/salsa). Anyway, I will have my excuse prepared and whip it out as necessary to explain why I am not eating and drinking. I am kind of bummed, to be honest, though, because I've been looking forward to this meeting half just for the food! And since this will be a new group of people (who I am excited to form some friendships with), I feel like not participating in the eating/drinking will make me weird/stand out, but oh well. What can you do. My goals are more important.

Happy Day 5 to everyone who is still participating! I absolutely love having this site to come to each day. Super grateful for everyone's positivity and the community we are building here.

Wew a political meetup with vegan catered food. Sounds like my type of party :) You have encouraged me to go jogging when I get home from work. I usually refrain from exercise whilst fasting but a nice light one miler shouldn't put me out too much. Have fun at the meetup. Some of my vegan friends fast and if they don't, they aren't adverse to the notion. They are more receptive to hearing about the science behind it than your average burger and fries "I don't give a crap what I put in my body" person.Wew a political meetup with vegan catered food.
