I’m finding it an interesting phenomenon. I both look forward to fasting days and don’t look forward to fasting days. The other day (Wednesday), I was bemoaning the upcoming day of self-denial but enjoy the fact that eating does not control me anymore. Now I’m sitting here typing away, having finished a nice dinner, looking forward to tomorrow’s feed day. I can’t say that these fast days are any easier with time but they are certainly part of my lifestyle. I can’t imagine life without these days of calorie restriction.
I purposely skipped writing this past Tuesday because I had only lost 180 grams and was a bit blue but that’s OK; I’m here now. Regardless of my feelings, 5:2 is here to stay and I can’t imaging what life would be like without the structure involved.
My menus this week were: Monday – 2C black coffee (10cal), 475g Lentil soup (212cal), 255g roasted onion, celery and squash mix (99cal). Totaling 321 kcal.
Thursday – 2C coffee with 2T half & half (50cal), Chili Lime Chicken Lean Cuisine (240cal) and 300g cooked beets (132cal). Totaling 422 kcal.
I’m gearing up for a disappointing weigh in but maybe I’ll be surprised. The Super Bowl is on the telly this Sunday, and while I don’t give a hoot who wins, it’s a fun time to get together with friends and eat. Hopefully I will exercise some self-control but that may or may not happen. Either way, it should be a fun day.
