Fasting Logs

Today was easier. I was highly productive and energetic.

I love cooking while fasted. Yesterday I made my kids some granola peanut butter and raisin bites. They love them. And I made my husband a lemon bread with coconut flour he loves.

Today I made everyone some lentil soup, peanut free granola bars for lunch boxes, and an after school veggie salad for the kids.

I’m so glad I have them to feed while I fast. It keeps me occupied and I feel less restricted. I could eat if I wanted but I have self control. It feels great.

I’m glad I’m not tempted by food because today we went to dinner with my husband’s family. It was an Asian restaurant so I ordered miso soup and nursed that the whole time. One person offered me some of there food but it wasn’t a big spectacle and no one noticed.

If this were a short term fast I would consider that a break but one bowl of miso over 21days is not bad at all. I hope it doesn’t mess with tomorrow. Usually after the 3rd day I’m smooth sailing.

Day 3 Weight: 123.8

Today was okay. Major struggles around lunch but I powered through. I’ve done 7 before. I know I can handle this. Cravings went away. Now for the weekend I’m secure. Weekends are usually easier for me.

I am nervous for Sunday. We are having a family dinner at a Japanese place with my husband’s family. I haven’t decided if I’ll just state I’m not hungry or have a couple spoonfulls of Miso Soup. I worry if I pick that I’ll have to explain I’m not that hungry anyway. I feed a family 2 kids and a husband every night so being around food isn’t a challenge for me.

Today I begin a 21 day fast. I last ate yesterday at 9pm. I will end January 25 in the morning with a light probably liquid breakfast.
I want to reset my body for the new year, lose some extra weight, feel accomplished, feel in control of my binges and eating habits and clear out my body as much I can.

I last did a prolonged fast in October- 7 days. Since then I have don’t intermittent fasting as I feel necessary. Holidays obviously caused difficulties.

Height: 5’1”
Current Weight: 130.5 lb

I might takes some pictures later today.

Can anyone recommend some reading material for motivation? I’ve already read both Dr. Fung books, never binge again by Glenn Livingston, The Fasting Cure by Upton Sinclair.

Today I'm going to start with my fast. I have 2 weeks to go for a trip. Planning to fast for 2 weeks. 
So ive Been counting Macros, and struggling abit. I get to about a week, feel terrible and cave to take away. So I thought I'd try IF and controlling when I have those feelings. Own that feeling as such. Was doing so well, fasting 16 eating 8. And BAM.. Last night partner gets hungry jacks. Now all day I've felt sick, which has made me feel guilty to myself. Why choose junk instead of health? Why punish myself and feel crap! Everything else has been perfect to a T, but the once a week junk! How do I make it stop.. I just want to grab it by the collar and own it.. Instead I cave. Guess I can't complain to much, nearly lost 80kilo now.. But you would think after changing every aspect of my life, I could let this last little thing go. Ohh the struggles of an undercover fat girl.. Lol

Fast started at 7.40 tonight.. Aim is 20 hours. Then 1650 cals to macros in 4. I got this, dream body to come....

I began my fast late. I always struggle most to fast during the PMs times. I last ate a normal day Tuesday 10/17 at 9pm. Maybe too much. I enjoyed popcorn with my husband.

At day 5: My energy levels and awareness are simply amazing. I feel so great this fast. I'm glad I delayed. Wednesday was tough but Thursday and Friday were both fantastic days at work.

Wednesday I ran and lifted last light weights. Thursday I walked on my break. Friday I was too busy. Saturday I went on an amazing cleaning spree and then went for an hour hike with my husband.

I am worried for today. My husband's aunt is in town and we are going to his parents house. His dad is an amazing cook and loves to bake and try new recipes. I'm going to go and politely tell them I'm not hungry. I'll be able to enjoy his cooking on Thanksgiving. :) I plan on going for a long walk alone and listening to podcasts beforehand.

I weight myself daily in the morning so I can use the weekly/monthy averages to show progress. I had plateaued around 131-130 before I began this fast.
Morning weights:

10/17: 130.2* not fasted
10/18: 133.3* not fasted
10/19: 129.5
10/20: 127.3
10/21: 125.9
10/22: 124.0

I feel so great I am going to see if I can extend this fast to 10 days. That way I can break on my day off (Saturday) instead of midweek. If I'm at work and I break it'll be easier to dip into the candy dish.

I am beginning a 1 week fast which will be my longest ever. I did not complete my last fast. I have been doing eod fasting for the past two weeks and now I want to kick it up a notch.

I could have started today with nothing but I had some food in the fridge to use up. I ate eggs with kale and half an orange. This fast began at 10am Sunday and I plan to fast until lunch time on Sunday.

I want to keep my solid routine I have for working out. Mon-Wed-Fri I usually run in the morning. I can replace that with a walk and in the evening I usually lift weights. Last week was a heavier week so I plan to lighten the weight and/or not lift at all. I just don't want to mess with my workout streak. Also, my 9 year old has been getting into it and looks forward to working out with me.

Morning weight 131.1lbs

I had a downtime. Then I was abroad. Long while... Feels weird to be back.

Did a 57 hours fast to start routine again. Now I'm bumping my way back to my 20:4. I gained quite a bit while I wasn't here, that sucks. Hope to get my act together.
