5/15/17 Day Type: Non Fasting I didn’t fast today, though I meant to. I woke up this morning and felt like my stomach was caving in so I decided to eat instead of stick it out…and I’m not disappointed in myself at all. I was able to gage how much I needed to eat to… Continue reading WEEK 2
5/9/17 This was my first day of my intermittent fasting (IF) . I stopped eating at 9pm on Monday night. I woke up around 6 am for work. I had to remind myself not to eat, since breakfast has always been a habit of mine. Since I was already awake and had an extra half… Continue reading (IF) WEEK ONE
