I love to cook, bake and eat. But this really takes a toll on my waistline. My goal is to chronicle my journey to becoming healthy and fit while juggling my love of food. I also love to curse and my goal here is to be 100% real. I don't want to sit for hours deciding whether or not a post will offend someone. If you are offended... read something else.
Email that I sent to my friend who also fasts with me:
know what. I have been doing some thinking today and I think I decided to take
a week long break from fasting. Since switching to vegan I have had a hard time
figuring out how to put different foods together. I think adding in fasting,
another thing I’m still trying to figure out, is hindering my transition. I
hate asking you to fast with me and then backing out but I really do need a
break. Some time to clear my head. I will start back full throttle on Monday
the 11th. See… I set a date so its permanent now.
She told me that there was no need to be sorry and that a
break is good if I think it will help get me straight.
I am stubborn and I hate… absolutely hate giving up and/or
backing out of things when I say I will do them. But the way I see it is this
is going to
A. break the boredom I’ve been feeling from my fasting
B. help me put my foods together in a more nutritious way
C. most importantly allow me to breath and clear my head
I think trying to make 2 lifestyle changes at once got to
me. It became a little too overwhelming. Especially because they are both diet
Plus it’s only a week long so it gives me a break without
completely undoing myself.
And hey… I’m human… sometimes we need time to think.
Oh and I read some interesting info on and intermittent
fasting forum about breaking a fast
with a 500 - 800 cal meal consisting
of mainly protein. I am going to see
if I can find any info to back this up or if I can find supporting ideas in
other places other than just this particular forum. I think 800 for someone who
needs extra calories but for someone like me, female with a desk job, I could
stay safely around the 500 mark.
In other news…
I think Little Bamboo is getting taller!
"We were on a break!"
If you said Ross and Rachel from Friends then you're as cool as I am!!
