Long story short, I am consistently inconsistent. Yeah, I nixed that experiment. I found that I liked it as per results (weigh daily, weigh-ins always went down) but apparently, I like eating whenever I want, especially if I have a long day and can't eat till later. So, still on this journey, many paths, everything is worth a try, everything rational, lol.
My friend was like, "can't you still stuff your face between 1-9?" and my reply was that it was possible. She was haldway correct, I ate a little more than I should have between 1-8, lol
I actually don't think I was over my 1900calories though. I'm going to workout fasted by eat around 8 or 9 making it a 12-13hour fast. I want to give blood today so I need to eat earlier.
Hey guys, I worked out this morning at 8. Did some light cardio/strength and got in the sauna (fun times), lol.
I'm at a 16hour fast right now, it's 10:00 now, last ate at 6:00p.m. last night. So far I feel fine. Coffee/Tea/plenty water in my system.
I have a protein shake/peanut butter sandwich with me as my first meal, very pathetic, but it's all good, haha. I need a better avenue for my peanut butter than a piece of bread, even though I love bread.
Okay, check-in later.
So, I ate within a 5hour window today, 1:00-6:00. I worked out after class at 8:00 and I feel really good.
A couple learning points, starting at 12:00noon may be better for me. Going till 1 wasn't a huge struggle though, going to play it by ear.
I need to plan my meals better so I can bring things with me, be able to eat more.
All in all, not bad, happy for the start, onward.
I'll start by saying that I am not new to fasting.(I've fasted for about 5 days with no water/food before). I am however new to fasting for weightloss, a reason I was so put off by the idea of fasting outside of a religious concept/context. That aside, I came to the conclusion that I could in fact benefit from it.
To keep it short, I am consumed with the idea of food throughout the day and the weightloss. I binge eat/overeat and I don't like that. I want to get my calories in, enjoy what I eat and be done with it.
I count my start time as midnight of today as the last time I've eaten. So it's been 12hours of my fast, 6 of those have been waking hour. I am not sure if I will get into a 24 hour fast schedule, but for now I want to have an 8 hour window to eat, preferably 4 with a 20hour fast.
Thank God I love water and black coffee. I'm about to drink my green ginger tea in a bit. I do think this may be the "cure" for my eating habits. I feel good, and surprisingly I did not have a headache this morning, which is what I usually have when I wake or after breakfast. I know correlation doesn't equal causation, but I look forward to seeing if those headaches stay at bay with the absense of breakfast and me fasting.
I'm opening my eating window at 1:00p.m. today. I'm going to not eat pass 9:00p.m. which makes my eating pattern a 16:8 (I could be have those technicalities wrong, but hey, learning over here).
And to add, my exercise will be at a minimum with my foot injury, so that's another reason for the experiement.
