    Ninja's diary - fasting and running to lose 50lbs

    Yay! A new diary to celebrate a new diet. I was calorie counting but I'm moving over to fasting (and calorie counting). As much as I'd love this to be a super fast journey, it won't be, but as long as I keep plodding on, I'll get there.

    Today is day 1, and my goal is not to consume any calories until 5pm when I will have a Thai green curry (approx 380 cals) and a total 0% yoghurt for 120 cals.

    I'm not sure how to combine fasting with running at the moment. I know I can't fast fri or sat as I normally do my long run on Sat, so I may try mon and either wed or thurs to start with.

    I'm going to try to eat healthily on up days and not go mad. I may need to calorie count as I tend towards binging. I'll see how it goes.

    So in summary:
    - running or other exercising for 30 mins 5-6 days a week
    - fasting 1-2 days a week (mon and either Wed or thurs)
    - healthy eating the rest of the time (with the occasional treat!)

    My sleep was restless last night and I'm awake earlier than usual (usually wake between 7 and 8 during school holidays but was wide awake at 6.45). Debating which exercise DVD to have a go at this morning...and what to munch on for breakfast.

    I have set my MFP account to no weight loss for my up days and it say 2048 cals which suits me because I'll be exercising too. That's what I'll aim for today.

    So squeezed in a dvd workout for 30 mins before breakfast (p90x 3 CVX - cardio with weights) and surprisingly wasn't particularly lacking in energy. I didn't feel full of energy but wasn't weak or shakey at all as I thought I might be. I'm also not hungry but had a protein shake before I head out to tide me over.

    Thurs 17th - UD

    Am: 30 min DVD (cvx)
    B - strawberry protein shake
    L - soya latte, smoked salmon & cream cheese sandwich, Tyrella veggie crisps, strawberries
    S - cappucino, banana
    T - chicken pad thai (scratch ready meal - over 700 cals and so not worth it!), lots of brocolli
    S - chai latte, mini mars bar, 2 milk tray chocs

    Total: 2100

    Today was a learning curve for me. I really wasn't hungry in the mornin,. I felt properly hungry before tea, and as soon as I'd finished, even though I wasn't hungry I was desperately craving chocolate. I could have eaten much more than I did.

    I am also shocked by how many calories I drink! Because I don't really drink fizzy drinks, I've never really worried. But I'm definitely limiting myself to one milky drink a day, including milk substitutes. Even when I'm out, like today.

    This is definitely going to be an educational journey!

    Friday 18th April

    Exercise: 5 mile run - av pace 10.40 - still slow but that's a whole 40 seconds per mile faster than this time last week...Yay!

    B - skinny latte, cinnamon swirl
    L - Banana, strawberries, hot cross bun (marmite, no butter)
    s - soya latte
    T - Thai green curry, sticky toffee pudding with custard mmmmmmm

    Not the healthiest of days - I'm going to make a concerted effort to eat more fruit & veg and less bread products on an up day, I think.
    V pleased with my run though. The first mile was tough, as my butt was aching from the DVD yesterday!

    Isn't it frightening? I think the fast days make you so much more aware of the calories on an UD. But on the other hand I also find it amazing how much you can have for 500 calories. I'm fasting tomorrow too in preparation for a very up Easter Sunday!

    Hello! That's why I'm calorie counting even on up days at the moment, because I could easily hit 3000 cals on an up day! Honestly, after the last couple of up days, I'm not surprised im overweight, im just surprised Im not more overweight than I am!
