Eating habits…

fullsizeoutput_12

I am currently babysitting and just put the boys down for the night and all I want to do is go grab a snack to munch on. Im not hungry actually I just want to eat because well it’s such a habit of mine. For years I would snack and eat just randomly, I would hardly ever let myself get hungry. I would binge eat for the hell of it, I would eat when I was emotional, stressed, etc. I had no control of it, actually I still have a hard time. But thankfully due to the intermittent fasting, at least I control it a little bit. I started fasting at 7:30pm tonight (a little over an hour ago) and I’m not hungry at all but all I want to do is go grab something to eat while I watch movies or read a book; but instead I decided to just drink water and sit here and blog. I really want to break this horrible habit of mine… any tips to help me besides for keeping myself busy and fasting???

Week 1 of Intermittent fasting…

Well I did it again, I finished my first week of intermittent fasting again! It feels so good to be fasting once again, I feel so much better! But it has been a little hard going back to fasting once again after being off of it for a while. Im back to doing what I was doing before, just listening to my body, meaning if I’m really hungry, I just end up ending my fast. I do try to fast for at least 12 or 13 hours before giving up though. Since I started I lost 2 pounds which is great considering the fact that I didn’t really work out! I am really hoping to stick to this for the long run and lose as much weight as I can.

Day 1 done!

Well I did it! I completed my first day of doing intermittent fasting again! My goal was to aim for 14 hours, however I wasn’t too hungry so I continued to fast till I got hungry and ended my fast at 15.5 hours! Woohoo! It wasn’t too bad actually… I was hungry but I kept myself busy and drank water which helped, I also did have a headache from the fasting but it wasn’t horrible either! I think my body got use to having something in the mornings and eating whenever for the past few weeks that I’ll probably will have a headache for the next few mornings until my body get adjusted to this new routine again!

Failed Intermittent fasting…

Well I didn’t fail but I did slack off! I got so sick about 3 weeks ago, with a horrible ear and throat infection and bronchitis! I had to miss 3 days of work just because I was that sick and could barely talk! On top of that my sweet sweet grandma passed away that week! So I was on antibiotics for almost 10 days if not more so I had to eat to take my pills even though I barely ate since I couldn’t swollen anything let alone liquid and pills. But yeah I got off the track of fasting and exercising! So tonight I decided enough is enough I’m going back to fasting! I’m starting to feel bloated again, I’m starting to eat more and crave sugar like there’s no tomorrow. I just don’t like this feeling anymore and want to feel how I felt when I fasted for a month! I wasn’t doing the 16:8 method as I mentioned, so I’m just going to continue to do why I was doing which was mainly listening to my body. If I was starving and was getting light headed I would end up fast before my 14 (my everyday goal was to fast for 14 hours) but I have done 15, 16 and even one 18 hour fast! So I know I can do it but it’ll just be so hard this week trying to retrain my body! So wish me luck!!! I want to document my journey to getting back on track on here!

Journey to a Better Me!

When we welcomed 2019, I got this weird feeling well not weird but great feeling that this was going to be my year. This year is going to be the year that I finally put myself first and work on becoming a better and healthier version of myself.

Two weeks ago exactly I started intermittent fasting in hopes of losing weight and getting healthy and honestly I have been loving it. I fast daily for about 14 to 16.5 hours meaning I do not eat or drink anything during that time frame except for water and black coffee. I can technically have black or green tea s well but I do not like my tea without sugar and honey so I rather stick to black coffee and water only. I have also started working out (this week more so than last week) and have lost a total of 4.5 pounds in two weeks.(WOOHOO)

I also got off my birth control two weeks ago today! I’m very curious to see how my body reacts this time around to it; last time I got off birth control to try and get pregnant, I gained almost 40 pounds within a year, broke out like insane and was so moody and tired all the time. Oh and I don’t get my period without my pill so we shall see about that too! I have heard intermittent fasting helps some women with their hormones and get pregnant as well so we shall see if it helps me with my crazy hormone imbalance.

I’m excited to share my journey with you guys!

Till next time….
