I had a great workout today. I felt strong on everything, so no ill effects so far at all with an IF as long as I eat properly the night before.
I can't stress how much being able to do an IF makes me happy. Since I was 26 years old, I've been almost constantly on the edge of panic if I missed a meal or even were late for a meal for fear that my blood sugar would drop and I would turn into a zombie that goes on a single-minded quest to eat any and everything on my path. OK, I never resorted to human brains; fortunately for those around me, I was able to find peanuts or cheese crackers or some other "wonderful" snack to bring me back to "normal" ... that is, until the next frequent crash. Now that I can not only do an IF, but the fact that I can have an intense workout at the end of it and still not really be all that hungry and feel perfectly fine is nothing short of amazing for me. Thank you primal!
I didn't have anything to bring for lunch today, so it was the cafeteria again for me. I think I figured out how to have a pretty good lunch there. I made myself a big ass salad from the salad bar (lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, carrots, zuchini, olive oil and balsamic). Then I got a sandwich without the bread, consisting of smoked salmon, two hardboiled eggs, arugula, olives, onions, red pepper, a pickle, and some pesto. I then mixed everything except the salmon into the big ass salad, which made it a really yummy big ass salad. I ate the salmon separately. I'm full and satisfied. The picture is pre-mixed. Post-mixed was yummy, but not very pretty.
