All good after the jags yesterday…. The Covid arm is really sore, I can hardly lift it, I can’t lie on it and I CAN’T ALLOW A DOG TO STAND ON IT!!!!! 😆😘
It’s funny though, as I managed the FBF really easily, as soon as I actually got it moving. We worked so hard this morning that I didn’t have time to think about how sore it was!
It was a great workout. I really enjoyed it. Losing the weight through fasting has really helped my energy levels.
I thought I should give a wee bit more info on intermittent fasting for those that are interested.
It’s not for everyone and you need to look into it before you start fasting, but it’s definitely working for me. She who is far too lazy to cook 3 meals a day. 😆
Intermittent fasting is a pattern of eating that involves regular periods of fasting, typically for 16-24 hours at a time, followed by periods of non-fasting. It is not a specific diet, but rather a dietary pattern that can be adapted to fit individual needs and preferences. Some of the potential benefits of intermittent fasting include:
Weight loss: Intermittent fasting may help you lose weight by making it easier to stick to a calorie-restricted diet. It may also increase the number of calories you burn, as your body uses stored energy (fat) for fuel during periods of fasting.
Improved insulin sensitivity: Intermittent fasting may improve insulin sensitivity, which can help lower the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Increased mental clarity: Some people report feeling more alert and focused after periods of fasting, possibly due to a decrease in insulin levels and an increase in the production of norepinephrine (a neurotransmitter that plays a role in alertness).
Longevity: Some research suggests that intermittent fasting may increase lifespan by reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and Parkinson’s disease.
However, intermittent fasting is not right for everyone, and it is important to consider the potential downsides before starting this type of dietary pattern.
The biggest win for me is that I go to bed and wake up without feeling bloated. It means I eat less when I am eating. I am taking control of my weight loss without weighing and measuring, cooking and baking. I take lots of vitamins when I’m not fasting.
For this moment in time it is working for me and long may that continue.
I managed another 16 hours today.
When Craig and I got home from the farm, we got straight back into bed and slept until 9.30am. I never do that! My head was sore when I woke up…. So sore I could hardly open my eyes, but paracetamol helped almost immediately.
Other than the sore arm, I’ve felt fine all day.
The little gift shop was great. We were still really busy and the day flew in. There’s lots of new stock coming in for pricing and it’s all getting ready for display. I love unpacking boxes and seeing what’s next.
We had lots of great chats. It’s great for the soul.
I came home and have made cauliflower and leek cheese, if that’s even a thing.
All I’ve done is steam two leeks and a cauliflower until they were soft. Then add a little oil and a stock pot, into the frying pan… mix it all round with half a tub of 50% fat cracked pepper soft cheese. some grated cheese sprinkled over the top. It’s lovely.
Quiet night for us I think. Waiting on Craig to finish work. He never stops these days… not that I’m complaining.
Oh and that reminds me, day 6 of Orjenise is to clear out your medicine box. I’ll have to do all of these last few days at the weekend.
Happy Friday night and hope you all have a great weekend!
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
