This morning I woke up and my day started like any other day. Except that what had played a role in my daily life, no longer played a vital role. I NEVER HAD BREAKFAST. Yes, alert the media that I never had a meal. This was very unusual for me….I will explain that a bit later. The first thing I did was step onto the creation that someone created because they felt the need to insult me, AKA the scale. So I’m not completely sure about my BMI, but I know that I am overweight and possibly obese.
My details are as follows:
Weight is 75 KGs. I converted this into pounds and it’s165.35 lbs.
Height is 1.61 metres. I converted this into 5.3 US feet
Back to my day…I had 1.5 litres throughout the day. It is currently 7:30pm so I still have the rest of the evening to drink another 500ml. I was not hungry at all, and this amazed me. However, my mind kept wondering off and the thought of pastas, desserts, meat and crisps often filled my mind. But I got over that by reading the comments I received.
Those comments mean a great deal to me. It kept me going. Soon after that I found myself saying “Ive got support, what else do I possibly need? And if they can do it, so can I!” oddly enough the balance was restored….lol. thanx to my amazing two supporters!
I went to the gym today. I spent 40 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the cycle. Thereafter I completed an eight minute tae-bo work out. As you can guess, I was exhausted and took a nice slow drive back home. After going to the gym I felt refreshed, so refreshed I plan on going back tomorrow.
My main concern would be my breath. I am aware that with the atkins diet the breath smells because of the body not getting it’s dose of carbs…so I guess that the same theory is possible here. The bad breath makes me feel so unattractive but then I think of the end result and boy…..AM I HAPPY again. I was contemplating having some gum but according to an article this secretes gastric juices and we don’t want that now do we?
My family is unaware that I am on the water fast; this is easy to pull off since I’m usually at university and hardly ever at home. When it was supper time, there was meat, and lots of it….barbequed ribs, patties, chicken. Automatically people will assume that I have a large family, but that’s far from the truth. My family members are normal sized; even my mom and she had two kids! The horror!
So I skipped supper and had a glass of water instead and took my mind off the amazing smell roaming throughout the house by smelling various perfume samples (one of which I want to purchase).
Every evening there is something delicious that my dad brings home. We take turns to put our request in, Tonight, my sister’s request is chocolate. I have decided to take the chocolate so that I do not look suspicious but I will hide it away and give it to someone at university (that person can pack on the pounds instead!)
Anyway, this post is already so long that I doubt anyone will want to read it, so ill be off….I’ll describe my love for food in another post.
NB: to all the fasters out there…..GOOD LUCK!
