Week 7: Lost 3, Total 15
I’m happy with 3 pounds down this week. I’ve been through the intermittent fasting for 6 days now. So that is 3 full days of fasting. I’ve proven that I could do it and I’ve achieved my goal of NORMAL BLOOD SUGAR at 85. So I will discontinue 24 hours on/off IF scenario for now. I will continue to eat very low carb and even skip meals if I’m not hungry. No big deal now. I guess fasting can be used to get hunger back in control or if I go out for dinner and eat a few things I shouldn’t. There is still more to learn about it.
I had a good workout at the gym Monday. I kept rests between the weight exercises to less than one minute. I did some squat/presses in between to get my heart rate up. I went through chest press, flys, one-arm rows, abs on the ball and lunges in 30 minutes. I did kinda-slow (not quite the 10 count superslow) and used heavy enough weights so that I couldn’t do more than 8-12 reps. I did 2 sets of most of them. I may do a similar workout on Wednesday night, but work different muscle groups. I’m not very fond of just doing cardio for an hour!
Next week for the Week 8 checkin, I'll take my waist and hip measurements. :)
