yep, I am! I got lost in the accent and forgot to mention that!
Whew, what a tough Fast Day! I was super hungry all day, felt hollow headed and sleepy. I made it to dinner. I had chicken, a salad with OO & V, and avocado. And coffee with heavy cream.
I feel much better now.
So glad tomorrow is Friday. We have to super clean the house this weekend. Bill is getting his parents from his brother in Boston on Wednesday. The weekend has turned rainy here, so we are going to pass on the yard sale. Hopefully, they will do one later this summer.
Tired. I could go to bed right now. Yawn.
Do it! If you are tired you should go to bed.
Congrats on getting through a rough fast day. Some are easier than others. But if you are tired that makes if harder. Going to bed early is an excellent strategy.

My journal: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread36279.html
My "Program": doing my version of a 5:2 -2 day fast diet with real food every day
Friday Report: 5:2 week 1
Wt. 217.3 down 6.1 from 223.4. +1.5 from NK low and new weight loss.
So Far, It seems to me that I can lose as well on this plan as on a full NK plan. I eat for NK on my Fast Days because I don't want to spike my insulin with too many carbs after 22+ hrs without food. My NK low weight was 215.8 on 4/22.
Hormonally, I know that this program will be better for me. I am a 45 yr old perimenopausal woman. Many experts agree that the key to weight loss for a woman at this time of life is getting enough safe carbs, but not too many. 75-100g is recommended by both Ross and Schwarzbein. 5 days/week, I will be hitting that target. Hopefully, correcting hormonal imbalances will help with binging. Ross says yes.
On my Up days, I am aiming for at least 2000 cals, 75-100c, 75-100p, 125-135f. This works out to regular Primal for weight loss as recommended in the PB. I feel as if I have come full circle. lol
Finally, This morning I had rice cereal and almond milk as part of my breakfast. It felt decadent.
Woo hoo, P!!!!! Great job.
I was finally able to get a copy at the library of the Diet Cure. Interesting reading. I like her and Schwarzbein. Thanks for the recommendation.
Sounds like you are doing great P. Woot Woot!
somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
