From What I Know
The Musings of a Karate Guy
If you don’t know and couldn’t jump in the Instagram Live last night; I’m a huge Tolkein fan. I’m at the point in this 5-Day Fasting experiment where I feel like Sam in one of the early scenes of The Fellowship of the Ring. As he and Frodo embark on their adventure, Sam turns and says, “If I take one more step…I’ll be the farthest away from home I’ve ever been.”
When I went to bed last night, I’d already hit that point; a point farther in any fast than I’ve ever been. As I took my stats this morning and looked at my fasting timer, it hit me that today would be tough. Thankfully work keeps me on my toes and I’ve got a meeting after work, then a wrestling meet to cheer on. Keeping busy and distracted is HUGE!
Comparing last night’s data to this morning, the stalled weight loss gave way to a 3 pound loss from yesterday. Blood pressure and resting heart rate are still holding steady. Blood glucose seems to have bottomed out while ketones continue to increase.
Let’s see what challenge today has in store! Thanks for following along on this experiment!
