253 this morning. So here is the good news, I have just done 6 days in a row of non-fasting, and only gained 2.2 lbs. Neither of my planned 2 fast days for this week ended up being even close to the 550 goal. What I will say is that once I realized a day was no longer a fast day, I didn't consciously limit my food in anyway that was different that what I would do on a non-fasting day. I didn't do a WTF and eat till midnight, but I also didn't say "well if I stop now it won't be too far off". I just turned the fasting day into a normal day and went on with my life. No guilt, and luckily no excessive weight gain.
More good news, today is a fast day.
Food yesterday was fine, well within the confines of a non-fasting day, nothing to write home about. I do still think that I do best when I generally confine my eating to my witching hours, about 3pm to 7pm. If I eat before then, I am not really hungry it is more a desire for a mouth feel, or a craving for something I have sitting around the house. On very rare occasions when I am doing heavy gardening it actually is hunger. When I eat during this time, I tend to make better choices, actually get full and stay full longer, and feel better the rest of the day. So I am going to work on that for my days off (obviously it is easy on my work days as I don't eat at work and get home at 4:30).
NEAT yesterday, I stood the whole day at work. I didn't do the treadmill so only got 6494 steps and 8 flights of stairs.
Sleep 7:32 and 93%, still waking up in the half hour before the alarm, it appears as though 7:30 hours of sleep is about what I need. feeling good about this.
Nothing exciting today, work and home. I do have off tomorrow, but it is so I can wait for the plumber
