Day 2 of intermittent fasting; con’t:
It was mostly that I just wanted to eat something.
See what I’m saying? It was the act of chewing that I craved, I guess.
Well, I ate my 1st initial meal yesterday.
It was kinda big, but not too.
I was figuring that I only had 7 hrs of eating to prepare for 16 hrs of nothing so, eat until I popped.
FEED ME, SEYMOUR!
I was wrong.
I tried to eat a couple of Baloney sammitchs’ 2 hrs later, and could only get one down. And it was like rubber. I chewed and chewed until I had to force swallow.
Like a cow…with cud.
I wasn’t hungry, yet.
I thought “Oh crap, I’m gonna starve before tomorrow’s eat time”
But, I soldiered on and swigged a fruit cup for desert. No chewing involved.
And that’s it, until now, 0808 CST and I’m doing OK.
No hunger pangs.
I’m a terrible terrible fat American.
I’ve only had my cup of Java so far. Like I said yesterday, I know Mormons aren’t supposed to drink coffee but in my defense, coffee keeps this trucker from going ape s**T and running 4 wheelers off the road.
It’s a coping tool 😬
I did notice something else yesterday though, just as the last 30 minutes before eat time began. I started getting that low blood sugar feeling.
You know, swirly brain, tingly fingers, slight touch of vertigo…overall, just weird.
So, as I learn, I guess I’ll start my eat time an hour earlier, say noon to 7pm to avoid going into an embarrassing coma or shock.
Here’s a thought…
I wonder if I had beef jerky to chew on, if that’s cheating or would invalidate my efforts. Not swallow the jerky, just the juice?
What think ye?
Only 4 more hrs to go.
Just don’t think about it Trey. It’s OK not to eat all of the time.
It wouldn’t be as tough if I smoked…but,thats one Mormon rule I do adhere to.
On to day 3!
