I'm not actually doing JUDDD. I am just doing a 20 hr IF day with 1 small meal. Tomorrow will be a regular lchf day which will be about 1400 cals. I guess I am doing lchf with an overall lowering of calories. When I do regular Primal days, calories will be higher.
I haven't stopped binging no matter what I have tried so this is just something different.
Your experimentation and determination to find what works best for you is amazing. You're an inspiration P :)
In brighter news, Bill had an interview at a hospital yesterday. The HR lady asked him to keep the first week in June open. (New Nurse orientation) The job is in the Mental Health Unit. The Head nurse really liked his particular credentials and experience. One of his nursing school buddies recommended him.
All Star Band Practice today. We chose a name...[B]Keep Your Day Job[/B] :cool:[/QUOTE]
I LOVE the name of the band! Great name. lol
Bill: I'm glad he's finally gotten a hit in the job hunt. Hopefully that'll boost self-esteem and help the two of you appreciate each other that much more. Your husband and mine have a lot in common and we have a lot of up days and down days as a result. Hopefully this new job interest will create more up days for you guys.
I also wanted to say thanks for the support on my journal this morning. It really means a lot to know I have friends out there, even if they're hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles away.
love the band name!
fingers crossed for the hubs job. And yes that he can let go of the guilt for not visiting last summer and make it to DE soon!
My suggestion (unsolicited, so it is worth what you paid for it) is that tomorrow you not limit your calories, but work hard to mindfully eat lchf and stop when satisfied. Then you can go back to calorie counting the next day. I find that the day after a successful dd I am more aware of hunger and less afraid of it, so it is a good day to experience feeding the hunger so to speak. But yes the day after that is a dangerous one. rooting for you!
I cannot believe how clear headed I am on fast days. I am plowing through my work and my mental state is excellent. I am tempted to see if it would be possible to do a full day fast.
Chris-My lchf days just naturally fall around 1400 right now, just by eating 3 meals and 1 snack. I have not been tracking. Tomorrow, I plan to eat normally. We will see what happens.
On my fast days I put off eating as long as I can, I always make it to at least 4:30 when I walk in the door from work, sometimes I even make it to dinner around 6:30. I do add half and half to my morning coffee though so I am not without any calories, but it is only 50.
I wish I got home from work at 4:30... that extra hour would be so useful!
**Sorry... random comment from the silent girl in the corner.
It is very nice. Of course my paycheck reflects that lost hour daily:p
If I make it to 5:30 tonight it will be a 24 hr fast. Maybe that is what I will aim for.
