With 5 months (or less?) to go until our wedding and a recent diagnosis of PCOS and huge change in our year, I’ve decided to tackle intermittent fasting as a way to lose weight and fit into my wedding dress (or by another if it doesn’t work).
So far it has gone well. We did a fast day last Thursday when I worked from
home and it was manageable. The thought that it was only for the day and that I’d eat properly again tomorrow made the concept a lot easier to deal with. Leon is doing it with me in support and for the other health benefits I told him about. He is pretty keen to disprove it however I did remind him that like any diet, lifestyle, religion, political beliefs it all comes down to choice. We shall see how he goes with it. He did tell me he felt really good on Friday and seemed surprised by this
After an awesome roast dinner last night we are fasting again today. I need to do a lot more research into exercise and fasting. I’m still struggling to get up and work out before work but I know that at the end of the day I am equally lazy. Imagine if work paid us to work out during work hours?! Technically my employer does in that they encourage exercise breaks throughout the day especially at lunch (I should know as I do promote health & wellness).
I must admit I am finding it hard to stick to a routine lately partly due to the fact I know it will all change when I travel up to Townsville for a month. It’s probably something I just need to suck up and do. Stop watching so much TV and get on with more important things.
Maybe after GoT and Veep season has finished and I stop looking for new TV shows? I discovered Silicon Valley on the weekend which makes me dream of working for a tech start-up apart from the fact I can’t program and the only IT skill posses is a self-confessed early adoption of technology (says the person with the iPhone 5c).
