ok, totally stealing this idea, thanks P!
Optimal Health Plan with Rumble Strips
All carbs from veggies and seasonal fruits
Fat fast till 4:30 most days (all calories from fat)
--at least 2 days of 550 calories or less
--up to 2 days of 1300 calories or less
--4 days of thoughtful eating to hunger (about 2,100 calories)
Weigh and Measure 1x/week (Saturdays) Track in journal or MFP.
Track food every evening (check food rumble strips)
Working on N.E.A.T....for now, eventually add in Tabata
-10,000 steps a day
-10 flights of stairs
---computer time at home less than 1 hour
---use upstairs bathroom
---30 minutes on treadmill every day
to get to where I don't need an alarm to wake up (about 7.5 hours of actual sleep)
To bed by 10
I find I am not having trouble with this as long as I stick to the 3:2:2 plan (which I did very well with for 2.5 months, so back to it!)
Use journal to evaluate daily.
Re-evaluate weekly to be sure I have not aimed too high or too low.
p.s. to me the rumble strip is about having a very specific path to follow with very specific limits. So things like saying I am going to work on my N.E.A.T. would not be enough, but adding that I will get 10,000 steps a day and 10 flights of stairs makes it specific enough.
