In which Sarah Barr does Intermittent Fasting (Challenge 12)

Don't listen to Terah's bad influence.  Save your daiquiris for next Friday

 

Why wait until next Friday when you can do it now?   

 

Hallo everyone!

 

Just added up scores for this week so far, I am one vegetable away from a pass already.

 

16hr fast yesterday went well, I think I will do that every Wednesday from now on to break up the week a bit.

 

This weekend will be the first proper test of resolve, since I'll have easy access to food and my wallet the whole time. I've had to get used to the change in energy levels, so I've been going to bed at about 8:30-ish most of this week. That means there's a lot of painting I've missed out on doing, so I'll have something engrossing to do during the day that doesn't involve expending buckets of energy. Starting to perk back up again though. 

Also it's Friday which means daiquiris in my flat and I'm torn: daiquiris would increase freggie consumption, but also increase points that count against Waffle scoreboard. I could just not add the rum and lemonade and call it sorbet. Yes.

Here the arch-raspberries exact their terrible revenge on the young of the tyrannical tortoise that smote their brethren. 

 

You're doing awesome.  That Wednesday break seems like a good idea.  I'm glad it worked well.  Good luck this weekend.  Don't end up like those tortoises.

WANT! One day I shall get a pet one. You could totally make one using sliced almonds for the gnashers. 

 

I did resist, ninjakitten! Were it not for the hot chocolate I randomly really needed on Wednesday I'd have a perfect score for this week!

 

So happy I made it through all of Saturday without screwing up! I did so much painting today and I think that really helped, because I was too distracted and also covered in inedible paint to think much about food. 

My weight came in at under 105kg today! I'm not expecting that I've actually lost that much in the way of tissue but I am happy. Will do the official weigh in, and by official I mean I will toot an imaginary bugle beforehand, and update sig. tomorrow.

Week one summary:

 

Three vegetables short of full marks! For scores, see second post in thread. 

 

I feel shiny and clean. 

 

Re-reading Frankenstein. 

 

Am under 105kg for sure, too. 

 

A good day. 

 

Week two will be easier, and I have extra preparatory fruit to make sure I meet that freggie target this time for full marks.

I'm intrigued by your #1 goal of cooking things for yourself. Do you do paleo cooking? Or is this more in line with simply enjoying the art of cooking?

Ah, no, I'm vegetarian, proper Paleo involves way more maths for me than I'm prepared to bother with! :D The cooking-from-scratch is for various reasons:

 

- A mindfulness thing; if I'm only eating one meal a day I'm going to damn well make sure I appreciate it, and something I've cooked myself is always more appreciated than something I've only microwaved. 

 

- A vegetables thing - I could get a jar of chilli sauce, some pretend-beef mince and a packet of microwave rice and it'd make a fair enough dinner, but when I make chilli from scratch there are so many vegetables I have to let half of them reduce down before they'll all fit into my great big gallon saucepan. 

 

- If I grab something from the takeaway it may very well have so many concentrated calories that I'd probably not actually lose any weight after all.

 

- And if I cook from scratch and it takes that bit more time and effort in the evening, I've found my hunger-overdrive has a moment to switch off after getting in, and I don't make myself unwell by eating too much. 

 

 

How's the fasting working for you? I never really tried, but I can't really imagine sticking to this either... I usually graze.  :D

 

 

You know, I don't want to say I think I'm used to it for fear of doing some psychological jinxing, but I think I'm getting there. It is much easier than I thought it would be. (And I want someone to quote that at me sometime in Week Five when it'll have been Difficult!)

 

That said, I haven't found the energy to start the Doodlies' Cards routine yet. I'll get there, but I suspect I'll be revisiting this mini challenge next week when I'm off work. Then I can do it during the day without having already done two fasted 45 minute walks. Will try, though.

Challenge still going strong on all fronts! And I got six portions of freggies in today. Did a wee calorie tot-up in my head and estimate that my average dinner is about 800-1000 calories, not including the 100kcal of fruit I scoff while it's cooking. Good to know, so if it does get hard I can add some more beans or something.

 

 

Haven't had a tortoise in a couple of days so here's a powerful wizard doing a blood ritual to summon the spirits of its ancestors. It hopes they will give it courage and might in the impending war against the Fregetable Army but they will probably just give it gas because they ARE carbonated, you know.

I laughed out loud at work reading this post. I really need to focus on my actual job now, dammit. NF is more fun.

Don't worry, I remembered I couldn't eat lunch today and was sulky about it because I also remembered I can't actually eat any of the cakes at the charity bake sale in my office building tomorrow. 

 

My DOMS is bad. I will summon the will to play cards tonight because that's really the only way to make sure I stop getting DOMS. 

Definitely the kind of weather requiring large doses of soup today. It was sunny an hour ago and now it's miserable. I'm going to make soup and pour about half a bottle of peri-peri sauce into it later. Will be beautiful.

I was too impatient so I ordered pizza to arrive just after I got home...

 

But that means I get to have pumpkin soup tonight!

I'm new to this whole 'pumpkin flavored everything' craze, so help me out: how does pumpkin soup compare to things like pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, etc.? (I'm not a fan of pumpkin pie, something about the texture/smell puts me off.)
