I ended up eating dinner yesterday, making my fast only 24 hours. Today, guys. Today is the day I start my fast (for realsies, this time, LOL )
I started strength training yesterday: I took my dad’s advice and set the bar so low that I couldn’t possibly fail. I told myself that I would do 5 MINUTES of crunches, squats, planks, and wall push-ups (you read that right- I have the upper body strength of a newborn baby so I said WALL PUSH-UPS) once I got home from work. When I got home, I totally did it, and my arms, core, and back are all mildly sore, which is awesome. I didn’t want to overexert myself, but then again I didn’t want to do so little that my 5 minutes had no effect.
Same effort today. 5 minutes, I can do this. Normal 1 hour 15 min walk this morning with Dad.
Starting my fast again. I think I’m starting to get sick again, so I am going to nip this in the bud and fast to get rid of it. This time I have a plan that’s not just “I won’t eat.” While it’s not a true fast that I’ll be doing, it will still be beneficial to me, I think.
B: Black coffee with coconut oil
L: Black tea with coconut oil, also a cup of broth
D: A cup of salty chicken broth with coconut oil
