Just Another Attempt

GarySo here I am again vowing to start blogging again. We’ll see. Trying to work on me now. Doing the 16:8 Intermittent Fasting, lost 2 pounds the first 3 days. It’s a good reset for me and tests my willpower. In my work my willpower is tested daily, the willpower not to just explode is always there. I need to work on self-help cuz no one is going to do it for me, dammit.

Reverse moving. So in order to clear the crap in my house, I am packing like I’m moving, weird yes, working? Yes. I am sorting and keeping only things I need or that mean something to me. I have a long way to go and the house needs major work but it’s working. The less in the house the better and the more empty surfaces the happier I feel.

Relationship? There is something but I’m not sure I would call it a relationship. It works for now. I’m not interested in anything other than what it is.

Kids good.

Pets, annoying. I have Gary the dog who tests my patience on a regular basis. Ozzy the cat who likes to get the dog in trouble by teasing him thereby he attacks and gets sent to detention.

That’s my story….for now. Stay tuned.

Just Another Attempt

Yup I can be Fast

Eat your vegetables!

This is week two, Fast number 4. Sometimes it’s easy and sometimes it’s hard but it’s most importantly easy. I would again strongly watching the video I posted last time, then if that intrigues you, spend a little and read the Fast Book. The best thing to come out of this, no it’s not losing weight cuz that isn’t really happening yet, but what this lifestyle does is reboots how you eat. We as Americans have no idea what it is to really be hungry. We get a hunger twinge and it’s easily handled when perhaps it wasn’t hunger at all but probably thirst. We are surrounded by water but most of us don’t take in enough plain ole water.

I find on the days after my fast I am not voraciously hungry and in fact usually don’t eat at my usual time but later when I really notice I’m hungry. I don’t snack hardly at all, mostly because I don’t think about food. I used to think I had to eat ever 2 – 3 hours I would get shaky. I think the shaky was more what I WAS eating rather than what I was not. Now I’m in charge.

I’ll keep you posted. The only thing I’ve noticed as a maybe side effect is trouble sleeping, nooo not because my stomach is gnawing at me, not sure why or if it’s FAST related, I am a terrible sleeper all my life.
