04/14: IF, yes, sun, no, PT, yes, mindfulness, yes, water, yes
I made a feeble attempt to count calories for more than a day - and failed! Watching portion size and choosing foods will have to be the extent of my mindfulness for now!

First 'successful' day in a long time!

I just saw an article about 'biohacking' diets, in which the head of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, is quoted for his tweet: 'in January: “Been playing with fasting for some time. I do a 22-hour fast daily (dinner only), and recently did a 3 day water fast. Biggest thing I notice is how much time slows down. The day feels so much longer when not broken up by breakfast/lunch/dinner. Any one else have this experience?' (The article was on Marketwatch.com, April 16, 2019.)

I can't do that - I could not even ATTEMPT a water fast. But it did bring this to my attention: life is a little different when you don't have to take breaks for food for a certain predetermined stretch of time. It may be why it is so easy to be distracted enough to even forget when the fasting time is up - that happens! I'm surprised when - for someone who reads comments of dieters who claim they are 'starving' (not here, elsewhere on websites...) - I forget that it is OK to eat because the fasting period is over! Not so easy to be 'starving' when you have blocked out the time to abstain from eating but you know you WILL be eating again when the clock gives you the go-ahead.

Happy Easter!
With our kids out of the house, there is no need for Peeps and bunnies. No temptations!

It is chilly and dreary, so no sitting in the sun. Got my water, though!
