Ew ew ew ew ew !!!!!! EW!

36 hour fast starting this morning. So far just a coffee and diet pills. I can get away with it with D around because this evening at “dinner time” we will be get our hair cut. My hair takes over an hour to do so I can send him away when he’s done and then not have to eat. Tomorrow I won’t be home at all and I’ll be going straight to a yoga class after work tomorrow and then out and about shopping possibly for Halloween costumes. I know this fast is only a day and a half but I’m going to take baby steps just incase I need to stop it tomorrow (there is the possibility that I will be taken out for lunch by my office). I do, however, plan on fasting until Saturday at about 7 or so because I will be drinking (so small amount of food because of the alcohol I’ll be consuming and to fend off a drinking binge). I hope I can get back into the 130s by early next week!!

The walking to the bus stop will be fantastic for me too. It’s about 10 mins to the first stop and then a 10 min walk to the warehouse from the bus stop (busses where I live SUCK) so 20 mins of walking EVERY DAY that I can’t get out of or else I would lose my job. Then standing for 8 hours. I’ll be burning approx (this is very much an approximation) 852 cals on top of my BMR and even before I go to the gym at all! So I’ll be losing SO MUCH as long as I can manage to keep my intake low low low!

I’m the worst faster in the world. I’m only a couple hours in and I’m already getting light headed, dizzy and tummy growls. Anyone have any ways of not having this happen so early in the game? I have water and coffee and tea and in case of emergencies a bottle of orange juice (to keep blood sugar in check). Hopefully these feelings will go away soon and I can get on with my day. It’s pretty distracting when all you’re doing in sitting in one spot doing data entry. I have a spreadsheet of over 300 rows and input all the information into this software that helps build coupons.

I’m also waiting for my boss to come in so I can tell him what choice I’ve made for this “transfer”. What do you all think…do you think he’ll tell me just to take tomorrow off and not come in?? I’ll take one day without pay before changing jobs!! Yay!

Well I’ve run out of things to say…if I think of more I’ll add to this post…

  1. I find sipping on tea or stock helps me. Also the bubbles in mineral water can fill you up. Good luck! xxx
