Spring is really here!

Sticking with the veganish food choices - at least until we go to a really nice restaurant. I'll save up my calories for that.

Big winner: vegan pizza. My husband usually eats half the pizza even though he is a meat and potatoes guy and already has his own supper. He can't stay away from home-made pizza. Food companies make some passable vegan cheeses these days, which makes pizza possible.

IF works great. So I will keep it as a habit. Physically,I feel great , and I'm less distracted once I'm committed to the schedule (the window for eating is from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.), It starts getting difficult around 10:30 a.m., at which time any project can distract me enough so that I realize hunger pangs are not emergencies. I sometimes forget to look at the clock then, which tells me this fasting can't be that hard!

Water - OK.

PT - takes time. It will take a lot of that to get back to how I moved pre-injury. How do athletes do it?

Spring is here! I finally got to move around and get some steps in this weekend. I finally updated from last week. I did hit my step goal, not much of anything else. I ate absolutely horrible over the weekend and my weight is back up to 208. I need to quit this back and forth!

I'm glad to see your hubby liked the vegan pizza!!

Have you though of adjusting your IF schedule to 11am-7pm?

My goals:
1) 100 oz water per day
2) lose 2 pounds (starting back at 208.0)

03/25: IF, yes, water, yes, mindfulness, yes, PT, yes

Went to the Y, so that's my PT.
The water habit is helped by some flavored seltzer water.
The IF is lots easier when the fasting hours are mostly hours you can sleep through! It's like skipping breakfast in a big way to wait until 1 to 'break the fast.' And closing the window at 9 p.m. means no late night snacks. It's a more natural schedule than some I've read about. Dr. Eades, the low-carb guy who wrote 'Protein Power' tried IF once and liked it OK. Not using my hours, but he devised a schedule that worked OK for him and his wife. He just wasn't much impressed with the benefits. There are some, but they aren't weight loss.
Mindfulness: how much more mindful can you get than checking in every day on fitday?

PT was a hike through city streets, armed with my cane. I was with my husband and had to struggle to keep up with him, but I did it!
