I'm happy to report that I'm down another 0.6lbs which means I officially have less than 1 lb left to reach my goal - 0.9lbs to be exact! I actually was down another 0.5lbs earlier in the week, but I gotta go with the official weigh-in Wednesday report. Either way, it won't be long now - I hope!!
I fasted since yesterday's lunch buffet at a local Mennonite restaurant. Yummy!
I find fasting to be much more effective if I skip supper and breakfast, instead of breakfast and lunch. Obviously because I eat more at supper than I do at lunch! But, it also rarely works for me to fast over supper. Supper is almost always a true family sit down affair. Lunch and breakfast I can get away with not eating without the kids noticing, just by being busy. But I think supper they would notice. Plus, supper usually includes tasty aromas filling the air - who wants to fast when they can smell delicious food?! Not me!
But anyway, yesterday it worked out well. We just made sandwiches for the kids for supper after that big lunch, and they ate upstairs while Nathan and I were downstairs watching football - so it was easy to skip that meal. It was much harder to turn down the ice cream sundaes at Nathan's parents when we went there for coffee in the evening! They even had cut up Aero and Kit Kat bars to sprinkle over top! They're used to me skipping dessert, but I have to admit, it was pretty tough this time.
Today I did Level 1 of the Shred. I also love to exercise during a fast - I think it makes it even more effective!
Today I did Level 1 of the Shred. It's amazing how these workouts are still so tough after I've been doing them for so long. There's so many ways to push yourself just a little harder so that you're just exhausted when you're done!
