Feeling Marvelous on this Monday

Monday, January 13, 2020

I feel like I'm doing great on my new plan. Have I been totally on track? NO! But I have made big strides towards my life-changing goals.

Last fall, I was chosen as a participant in our local American Heart Association's Go Red for Women health challenge. One of the physicians that I really admired spoke highly of the fasting diet. She said that her brother had done it and lost a bunch of weight while also reversing type 2 diabetes. I'm not exactly sure which plan he did as there are so many variations to the "Fasting Diet" and I don't recall her saying. After my research, I have decided that the 5:2 is what I wanted to do. I chose Mondays and Thursdays as fasting days since I don't feel like there will be too many obstacles to tackle. As I'm typing this, I realize that I will have a BIG obstacle next Monday with a work event. I'll find a solution and deal with it.

I hope that your Monday is going well and that your week is off to a great start.

    I do low carb and IF Interment Fasting usually stop eating at 6 and not until about 9 a.m the next day..of course this varies depending on how crazy my day looks. I usually just sip on herbal tea during the day oftentimes missing lunch also. It seems to work. Good luck on your new plan! emoticon

    Fasting for me is Fasting every day at least 16 hours, usually 18 where I eat nothing, and then 6 hours of eating reasonably. I usually stop eating at 8 pm and fast to at least 12 to 2 pm the next day. I find it really simply, but lately circumstances have really interfered, now with the holidays over I can get back to it.
