I have found my new muse!
My writers block has lifted!
I have decided to focus my recently dormant creative blogging energy toward my fatness and the prominence of said gut….
I have decided that I do not look good as a full figured man.
If you get my point.
I will turn 54 this year and my goal is 185 lbs. Not the 261 I currently am. Oh, btw, that’s from a truck stop scale so it could be + or – 20lbs.
I am pursuing Intermittent Fasting.
No, I’ve only been studying about it for a couple of days and I’m only on day 1.
I will share as I live and learn.
Hey! It’s our journey together!
So, here goes on day 1.
Fat Attack, Engage!
Oooooo No, this is not a New Years resolution.
The toughest part of intermittent fasting (IF), for me, is getting past the mental part. The part that says that I have to eat or munch on something all of the time.
After I thought about it, I discovered that I really only eat breakfast out of habit. I know its considered the most important meal of the day but, I hardly ever wake up hungry anyways. All I usually want is coffee in the morning, anywho. I know, I know, I’m a terrible Mormon. If that’s my only failing today, I’m good.
So, I’m on my first day of IF and I haven’t eaten since yesterday afternoon and I’m still not hungry. The biggest obstacle is not to munch just to munch. Kinda like, if I smoked, I guess. Smoking a cigarette just to smoke. But, since I don’t smoke, I munch….then get fat.
It’s gonna be kinda tough with me being a truck driver, since my schedules are always jacked up and hard to stay consistent with anything. I figure though that if I keep the general time frame intact, I should be good. Of course the body acts different at night than during the day, blah blah blah.Lot’s of interesting, common sense stuff with IF. Y’all read up on it. I’ll keep you up to date on how it’s going with me. Here’s how I’m starting out:
1) No Breakfast (liquids are fine. Water, coffee, tea, etc., easy on the sweeteners; calories bad)
2) Eat normally but wisely between 1-8pm
3) Fast for 16 hrs or until the next day eating period.
Retrain in the membrane!
