Task Complete

Well, I did it. Although I REALLY didn't want to, I completed the 24 hours, and likely it was because I put it out there earlier and had some accountability to keep it going. So, I fasted for 23 hours (due to class at 6, I had to eat at 5).

Toward the end I was starting to get hunger hiccups, which I managed to staunch by drinking water that contained FiberSure, Crystal Light Sunrise Orange (1/2 a packet), and a pinch of sea salt. I was also shaky and had a hard time keeping my attention focused, kinda ADHD-like, I went from one thing to the next never really focusing on anything.

One weird side effect that might be TMI: I was peeing every 20 minutes this morning, on approx 1.2 liters of water. So, I do believe that I got rid of a lot of water weight!

I may try this again, just to see what adding exercise to the mix does. I REALLY want to get a good gym workout in, since I haven't been since Friday. I should be able to get in tomorrow, as it's hubby's turn to take the sick tyke, and I am looking forward to it. I know I know, kettlebells next to the desk, quit reminding me!

Glad to see you made it through the first 24 hr fast. I am considering doing one soon to kind of reset my body. How did it affect your weigh in?

Grab that kettle ball and do one of Josh Hillis's fighter workouts.... what's 5 mins right? What do you got to loose??? couple pounds?? ;)

keep at it.
