Hi everyone, hope everyone here is doing well.
Some of you may remember I was on here in The early part of the year trying the Fast 800 for the first time – I was weighing 15 stone (5 foot 8 male) abs needed to get down to 11 st 7. I found the Fast 800 extraordinarily easy and kind of fascinating, and at the end of 12 weeks was down to just under 13 stone.
The one thing that I didn’t do last time was enough exercise. I was on a very punishing work schedule and only had weekends free, during which time I’d generally have a 10 mile walk.
I didn’t switch to the 5:2 but had the summer off, as my holiday was walking the Thames Path, 212 miles in twelve days. After a few naughty weeks, I’m now back to continue the task. I’m weighing 13 st 7 and so, here goes…
I started back on the fast 800 on Monday and again have found it so easy. This time however I’m exercising lots too. Monday began with 30 mins on the crosstrainer and a few weights. I actually only had 500 odd cals on Monday, as I was at work until late ans quite limited with what was available, but it was fine. My eating window is 11am til 7pm, I found last time this worked well.
Generally it’s so something like:
Mushroom omelette, boiled egg or full fat yoghurt for breakfast.
I’m now on day three. God, the sleeps I’m having are so much better without alcohol! I do dream of food a lot but in my waking hours don’t really seem to crave much.
I’ll keep updating my progress, but just wondered if anyone wants to point out anything I’m doing wrong – should I not exercise that much, etc?
If I could get down to the target weight this time I’d be so pleased. I have a very big thing happening in the autumn and want to FEEL my best for it.
