The Result of the Fast

So I fasted yesterday and boy was it hard. Next time I do it, I’ll make sure I have something I can sip on all day at work. I drunk 2 cups of coffee in the morning and had to make a another pot to help me through the afternoon. It was 1 cup though. My co-workers was like “You sure are drinking a lot of coffee today”. I couldn’t tell them I was fasting because they would ask questions. Also I had 1 cup of water. I’m not a water drinker in the least. I know I should drink about 8 or 10 cups a day but to someone who has a hard time drinking water, that’s nearly impossible but I do try. So I weighed myself this morning and I went from 145 that morning to 143.8. Which is 1.2lb so I was close. I won’t be fasting again today though because I need food. LOL I’ll really have to prepare myself for the next fast but I’m happy that it worked.

Impossible Light Dinners

Lately, I told myself that I’ll have a protein shake for dinner to help keep the calories down and help my body regenerate after a good workout. So far, that has not happened.

Monday, Leftover Beef Pie

Tuesday, Leftover Beef Pie and Birthday Cake

Wednesday, Cheddar’s Restaurant, Grilled Chicken Alfredo.

Unfortunately, I gained 1.8 back but today I’m going to fast. I think it’ll let my body have a break and disgust the food. Because I won’t be eating that many calories today, I’ll do a low impact workout, such as, doing a level 5 on the elliptical instead of 8 like a usually do and no strength training. I hope I lose what I gained tomorrow and if I don’t, I’ll fast another day. I’ll just have to be stead fast and determine to lose the extra calories I took in.
