So last night at 2 am, I woke up to intense stomach pain, intense hunger to the point that I was completely weak.
This is a sign that my body is finished the fast. This is probably because this is the first one I have done in about 6 years so its actually a good first attempt. In the past I always had to work my way up by doing a 3 day fast, then 6 day then 14 day etc.
I went upstairs and made myself a big green shake with cucumber, greens, lemon juice and egg in bouillon.
I sipped this for about a half hour slowly with water and my stomach subsided instantly. I went back to sleep.
In the morning I had a green shake and packed myself a small salad, salmon fried in olive oil, (4 oz), with asparagus, and 2 boiled eggs. I will graze on that at work for my 12 hour shift. I am eating small bits all day of that. That's all I will consume today with lots of water. I feel good with no pain or weakness.
The good thing is that my knee still has no pain. I was injured a few months ago and have been put on the desk which caused depression and a lot of weight gain over the past year. Now I am doing well and should be active as soon as I drop this weight and I can run again so that's why the bike is so important for me.
I was a bit upset about breaking my fast but I have a plan so I feel better.
My plan is to complete 2 days of strict Keto diet and then begin my 30 days again. I think this second time, I should be able to do it without my body acting up.
If you do a fast, you have to listen to your body or you could end up in the hospital. The signs to stop the fast are Appetite returning with a vengeance, trust me you will know. And your tongue going a nice pink again. My tongue was still white but I had to listen to the stomach pain and hunger.
So I am very happy at a weight of 314 today with a loss of 27 pounds!!!
I am going to keep blogging for the two day keto and then I will start the fast again yay!!! I am excited to feel better and being on my journey to better health for me, my family and my career
Oh yeah and on a side note now I have agreed to go meet my crush from high school...so much for staying single. This happens in December as he lives on the other side of Canada. I have time to lose a lot more and feel much better about seeing him again. We were neighbors all my life so I know him well and have missed his friendship.
Now it is important to say that I am not doing this FOR A MAN. I am doing this for myself. I was quite happy to be on my own with a good income and pension but I am also open to trying since he found me. He is super sweet.
Ok talk tomorrow. thanks for following along
