Today I woke up later to adjust to the fact that I don’t need extra time for breakfast. So I made coffee. Got dressed. Moseyed around the house a little bit
Left for work . Not hungry quite yet.
I got to work and finished up a project and took my break around 11am again. I was hungry at this point, but again, not starving. I wanted food but I just drank water and sipped my coffee.
Finished work and went home.
Finally had the opportunity to break my fast. And I had a bowl of cereal. I know it isn’t very nutritional but I wanted something fast because I was getting a headache. My headache wasn’t very bad but it was building so I wanted to eat something. But after one bowl I actually felt ok.
Left over Chinese food.
Not healthy again, but I wasn’t home when the food was ordered the day before. I did not want the food to go to waste, but I found myself consciously reducing my intake. I usually pile Chinese food on my plate with no regard to the amount of sodium that I’m consuming. Today, I definitely had smaller portions by almost half of what I eat. I had more rice than noodles and made sure that I had the least saturated pieces of chicken. Drank two cups of water.
Im winding down for bed. Everyone knows that you generally are hungry not long after eating Chinese food.
So I as feeling very hungry again
I laid in bed forcing myself to go to sleep. I was consciously telling myself that I will be ok.
I made it through the night but woke up feeling hungrier than I did when I woke up on Tuesday morning.
Overall, I think that today was still not great but it was better than yesterday. I don’t feel more energized but I also don’t feel like I’m starving either. I may add green tea to my mornings as an alternate to drinking coffee every day.
In my initial Lifestyles Changes post I mentioned that I may have to adjust to more fasting hours and I think I may have been correct. But I’ll try the 1pm-9pm eating block for the rest of the week and see how I feel.
