Day 1 in the Books!

Day 1 of intermittent fasting was great! I made it through the fast without wimping out; that is something! I even did an hour long total body core workout! I can do this!

My “feast” started at 7 am. Here is what the meals looked like:

Breakfast – 3 Whole Grain protein-packed pancakes (Kodiak Cake brand) drizzled with real maple syrup. One cutie orange.

Snack – Naturade VeganSmart shake (I LOVE my shake!)

Lunch – Roasted Chicken Breast with Riced Cauliflower (Birdseye brand, this was delicious!!)

Snack – Apple and a slice of cinnamon raisin bread with a tsp of soynut butter (I’m allergic to nuts).

Fasting started at 3 pm.

I didn’t drink as much water as I could/should have yesterday, I’m going to be working on that today!

Overall, I would give IF a big thumbs up!

Oh I’m also down to 172.2 pounds from 173.6!

Intermittent Fasting Starts Tomorrow!

Hey there everyone! I haven’t posted in a very long time and it has been one very hard year (we miscarried the baby I mentioned being pregnant with in my last post), so I kind of closed up shop on my life for a good while.

But I’m back, I’m feeling happy and alive again. My husband and I may even be ready after this year to try again.

This refreshed time in life has also given rise to my renewed desire to become physically healthy again. I’ve been researching the newest ways that people are losing weight including keto and intermittent fasting. I found the latter to be the most palatable to me in life right now.

I’m trying to determine whether I want my fast to cut out my traditional breakfast or my traditional dinner. I’m thinking that I want to cut out dinner because I am not a fan of dinner anyhow (I’m much more of a breakfast person), but there may be occasions where that doesn’t work as well as other times.

I’ll be blogging my progress through this experiment of intermittent fasting. I will be coupling 30 minute fitness routines at least 3 days a week as well as 30 minute, low-impact cardio a day.

Here is to a new year and a new me!
