Stuck it out today and had morning coffee and then a few glasses of juice and doenjang broth throughout the day, plus tea. Tomorrow, I'll cut out the doenjang, and only drink coffee, tea, shrub, and juice so I can lower my sodium content for the blood pressure test on Friday. Friday is a water fast until about 3pm, in prep for the Med exams After those, I'll indulge in a splurge meal because that marks the end of the juice fast and the beginning of the Fast800 for two weeks of 800 kcal Mediterranean diet fast. The calories were a bit too low today, but that's okay because I had a lot to deal with today emotionally, getting some frightening news from someone in San Antonio, and then just being exhausted from that. I also was resting my back one more day since straining it in yoga goddamnit! a few days ago. Hopefully I'll wake up tomorrow with pain gone and can start yoga again. I also have a massage and acupuncture tomorrow, so that will help all facets of my emotional and physical health!
Did good today. I can't believe I weigh xxx pounds. It's horrifying. Never before has my health been in such an emergency state and the scale screamed so high. So now I'm really going to stick to the fast and hope for a 4.5kg/10 lb loss over the first two weeks.
I wonder if I stick to the 800kcal/day fast for an additional week or two beyond the first two weeks, how much weight I'd lose. If I could lose an additional four pounds each week, it would make fasting those two extra weeks worthwhile! It would also bring me to a total of 18 lbs down over four weeks!
Then I'd only have to lose xx more to get to my initial goal. Afterwards, I could easily lose at least two pounds a week; I could do that in two months. by March 31.
Having extra weight off will allow me to run again, and doing the 5:2 Fast will allow me enough energy to pick up my cardio. So I should be able to start running again late January.
I will be doing yoga and riding my bike throughout January; slowly building strength and endurance over the month and adding in calisthenics. By the end of January or early February, I'll be ready to run again. And running will be so much easier with the extra 10+ pounds off.
I can do it!
I can do it!
