I like that graphic the most...
Day 6 of my 3DAY fast...I've kept going, why? Because it's so easy to. It's just so simple and liberating and exciting...(until my husband cooked dinner and the smell of goodness filled the house)...so last night I contemplated my next step...Commit to the weekend (I'm so all or nothing) or end the fast after the night?
I'm one who loves racking up numbers...Going farther than I dreamed of. Like the half marathon..I pushed through a lot of pain to achieve that...and the 2nd time wasn't as fun at all, nor was running any more. The 50mi bike ride was great because I'd wanted to accomplish it. Got my eyes on a 100mi ride by this summer...I'll get there too.
So going long is an exciting challenge for me. But truthfully I feel so darn good. Food is so completely quiet...My body is at peace. I'm not grazing or trying to stop crazing. I'm not thinking about foods or craving them. (yes there is that moment in the evening where I psychologically MISS food) a cup of broth is goodness.
Today is Saturday. The weekends are where I play hard, go farther and tend to eat more...often rewarding myself for whatever fitness achievement I've made. I graze and crave...(because I've been out of ketosis)...
My ketones were 4.5 this morning. My weight was down 3lbs and my BF% was down 1% (that's the hardest number to move).
My stomach is growling like crazy (I think it knows my mind is trying to decide if I should go on or not!!!)
Stay posted and see what I do!
