  • Yep, can't wait to hear how fasting works for you. Doesn't seem your style:-) You never know, you could come up with some of your greatest recipes while fasting!

    Thanks for your very right on comments about my eating issues. You got it exactly right, and I'm working on it. May have to start over somehow.

    Have a fantastically primal weekend!

    • I feel like I wasted the day... Terrible thing is is that I spent the majority of it at my parents place and that's what made it feel like a waste. Is that bad? Most likely... Oh well


      Yesterday's fast went well... I think. The one day I chose to do a fast is the day that the team orders pizza. Come 3 o'clock the leftovers sitting my my desk almost started to look like food. Didn't touch it though. The day was otherwise easy day. Did just over 36 hours which is why I waited for today to post. Finished eating thursday at 8ish and had breakfast at about 9:45 this morning. Didn't actually feel hungry this morning until about 3 bites into breakfast. I don't like doing groceries on an empty stomach though so I figured that was a good reason/excuse to get some food in me.


      Breakfast- 1 pork chop, 1 egg cup, 1 piece of dark chocolate, 2x Salmon oil caps, 6000UI D3

      Lunch 2 egg cups

      Dinner - 2 large salads (guess I was feelin hungry at the end of the day) and 1 piece of dark chocolate

      Airsquats for time tonight before bed... I'm regretting even just typing this... but now I have to be committed to them.

          • So do you mean you just set the clock for five minutes and do as many squats as you can? You don't just count?

                No air squat AMRAPs yet. I've been setting a goal of 100 and seeing how fast I can do them in proper form. Only problem is I whussed out and haven't done them in the past 2 and a half weeks... I've gotta do them again this week to get leg strength and resistance up.

                • So a very fun/special weigh in day today. So good that I had to take a photo! Wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes!



                  I passed the 50LBS off mark! To make things better this has been the best lose week since the first week that I did the leptin reset. 282.4 down from 284.8.

                  Goal this week is to maintain the number and not necessarily move it. The Elmira Maple Syrup Festival is on Saturday and I can't remember the last time I missed it. Mmm... Maple... In preparation for it I'm going to try up my protein intake to help counteract the sugary sugarness that is maple awesomeness!

                  • Oh! And on Pam's recommendation I've rearranged my goals in my signature. I can't really test the plane seat belt thing for a few more months so I cut that out but other than that I have a lot to be proud of and a ton to work towards!
