I’m going to do today a little differently. Not in the way that I intend to fast but in how I blog about it. Since I’m still new to using WordPress, this may go horribly wrong but as the saying goes, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” I’m going to post throughout the day and try to add pictures of what I am eating on these fasting days.
To begin with, it is currently 11:00am. I have already come back from the gym, weighed myself and ate breakfast. I rode the elliptical machine for thirty minutes, for a total of 507 calories burned (according to the machine). I came home, stripped down and hopped on the scale. I weighed in at 145.6kg. I have lost exactly one kilo in one week and for this I am glad. After my shower, I fried (with cooking spray) one egg over easy, and had with it, one piece of low-cal bread along with two cups of black coffee. I’m still working on the coffee, by the way. Oh, so far my caloric intake is 130 kcal.
I’ll post lunch, with a picture, when I get around to eating.
Well, when lunchtime came around, I wasn’t all that hungry, so I waited until 5:30 to eat dinner. This consisted of 200g mixed baby greens (23cal), 1T salad dressing (12.5cal), 3oz sliced mini bell peppers (40cal), 1/4C herbed feta cheese (70cal), 4oz grilled chicken breast (120), 200g steamed veggies (75cal), and 1/3C brown rice (73). I’ll tell you what, after eating a big dinner like this, I was full. Now it’s 8:00pm and I think I’ll watch a movie. Today’s total calorie count is 543.5; that will be good.
I honestly believe that I can do this for the rest of my days. Fasting this way is not too difficult. The only thing that I truly dislike is weighing and measuring my food but having to do it only two days a week seems quite reasonable. Below is a picture of my dinner. They will be relatively similar on my fasting days so as to eliminate having to weigh and measure new things each week.
Cheers and see you on Thursday(ish)
