Moving More and Sleep
Sunday, November 24, 2019
This blog is especially for my Spark friends doing IF or OMAD.
I had only been following this plan a short time when I got an urge to move. I had to get up and DO something that involved movement, so I cleaned. It was a novel experience. Not exactly a burst of energy. My body just wanted to move. I've never heard anyone else talk about that. Oh, I've heard people say they had more energy when they lost weight, and I expect that will happen, too.
I watched a video clip by RAH made during her 30 days of OMAD. She said a strange thing happened after a few days. She suddenly had this need for movement. She had an appointment to meet up with a friend so she decided to walk the three miles. It looked like she might live in NYC where walking is easy because of sidewalks everywhere.
Some people have mentioned they have more energy that sometimes interferes with sleep. I've experienced this, too, so it's good to know the source. It's a good time for thinking, planning, praying, or mentally writing (and hope I remember when I get up). I usually make myself stay in bed because I need to keep my feet up enough to stop edema. The swelling in my legs has decreased.
This video clip reminds us to make sure we are eating enough, stopping when approaching full.
The next video is about 53 minutes long. Intermittent Fasting Success Story with Jim Caldwell has practical and interesting info. Fasting reset his system. Periodic fasting helped get through plateaus. Bear in mind that your eating plan may not look like his. IF and OMAD are not about WHAT you eat. They are about WHEN you eat.
