Today I had more energy and wasn’t even hungry by lunchtime. I brought a sandwich for lunch, but didn’t end up eating it until 3:30 which made for an 18 hour fast. I didn’t intend to do that, but I know that once I start eating I feel more hungry. Maybe it was my subconscious trying to help me to not be hungry all day?
I felt energized, no brain fog or grogginess in the afternoon. I had the sandwich for a late lunch then chili for dinner. I ended with a small bowl (1 cup) of frozen berries with a little whipped cream and came in just around 900 calories. Measuring everything out is a bit of a hassle so good thing this is short term!
Thinking about my meals tomorrow, I’m going to opt for things that will be lower calories but more filling. Maybe some carrots? Another sandwich? Believe it or not, a homemade sandwich isn’t too high in calories, as long as you use little to no mayo (mustard has zero calories 😄).
As far as exercise, I had an appointment today and the doctor I saw told me no exercise for two days, but as long as after that I workout consistently for the remaining days of the experiment I will average the same amount of workout days per total days. I still haven’t decided if I am going to do this for 5 or 7 days. I’ll see how I feel by day 5.
