Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I contributed a personal post and I know you’ve just been itching to find out what I’ve been up to (wishful thinking!). Well, the short answer is in some areas a lot but in others, not much at all.
So let’s get into the important stuff first, diet and exercise…
Well, my eating has been about 65/35, in favor of good. I’ve been eating sensibly and last week I made a change to my current eating style by making a switch to 16/8 intermittent fasting, which is eating all my calories during a selected 8 hour window of the day while fasting the other 16 consuming nothing but water or zero calorie drinks. I do also partake in sugar-free gum because anyone who has fasted knows that it leaves a bad taste in your mouth and makes your breath smell to others too. I’ve stuck to it all but 2 days since I’ve begun 8 days ago. I’m not sure if I’ve gained or lost weight since I’ve begun since I haven’t weighed but I will say this, knowing that my eating is confined to this particular window has actually made me more disciplined. Knowing I can only eat between 2PM and 10PM (my chosen window) makes it easier to stay focused on other things because I know what time I can eat. I will aim to keep this going as many days as I can but like I said if I get an invite out for breakfast or an early lunch or I attend a gathering with food in the morning/early afternoon hours, I won’t punish myself for it or I’ll just make my 8 hour window begin earlier in the day.
