Happy day of the turkey!

So, I’m going to try the Bright Lines Eating diet. Both of my parents are willing to pay me $200 if I manage to lose weight. That’s great! But I’m worried about hunger with this one. The book tells you exactly what to eat and how much of it to eat. Bear with my memory here, becauseContinue reading “Happy day of the turkey!”

Quick! Don’t think about food.

So, my iffing (intermittent fasting) hasn’t gone well. Over the past few days, I’ve been stressed, and I’ve broken the fast in the evening to eat one item of junk food. Yesterday, it was a few bites of cookies. The day before, it was some sort of individually wrapped cake that someone gave my dad.Continue reading “Quick! Don’t think about food.”

Doing my dead-cat routine!

I haven’t blogged lately about my iffing (intermittent fasting) efforts. I figured I’d catch you all up on it.  I’d assumed that a later-in-the-day window for eating would work well for me, like from 4:00 PM until bedtime, for example. However, I was wrong. For whatever weird reason, I feel compelled to eat as soonContinue reading “Doing my dead-cat routine!”

The fasting’s going pretty well.

Hi guys! I thought I’d give an update on my efforts at fasting. First off, I weighed myself, and I weigh around 205. I think I managed to break just under 200 earlier this year, but then my diet went to heck. I suspect I’ve lost a few pounds off of whatever my weight jumpedContinue reading “The fasting’s going pretty well.”

Life’s peachy!

I’ve been enjoying writing my memoirs. I think they might even be publishable, since there’s so much scandal and intrigue to my life. I’ve been writing about the early years when we lived in my first house from birth to age seven. That was a very nice period in my life, and writing about itContinue reading “Life’s peachy!”

There’s a rainbow at the end!

Oh, drudgery. My diet went off the rails today. I’ve been sticking to the fasting, which is great. I’ve become a master at going for 15 to 18 hours without eating. Hurrah. The problem–well, today, anyway–is that I decided I shouldn’t break the fast with junk food. Not that I’ve been doing that–yesterday I madeContinue reading “There’s a rainbow at the end!”

Why intermittent fasting works for me!

I was taking a nap before bed last night, and I felt very relaxed and dopey (you know, moreso than usual), and so I was doing some soul-searching, and I realized why I like intermittent fasting (IF) as much as I do, and why it’s actually working for me. For many years, I’ve had aContinue reading “Why intermittent fasting works for me!”

Exhausted!

Well, I’m in a good mood, but I’m emotionally and mentally hungover. Emotionally from getting bad news from my former employer, and mentally from writing the 3-day novella. About that: I reached my same word count as last year: 17,400 words (rounded). Go figure. Unfortunately, I’m seeing some comments on social media indicating that myContinue reading “Exhausted!”

Adjustments are painful!

So, doing intermittent fasting has been hard! My body’s used to constant snack food during the entire period of time that I’m awake each day. I’ve realized I need to overhaul how often and when I eat. What I eat is mostly okay, although not perfect, but I don’t have any health issues like highContinue reading “Adjustments are painful!”

A freefall into dietary failure!

I’ve taken some measures to “force” myself to follow a certain diet. Namely, I spent a small fortune on grocery items from Amazon that should keep me on the straight and narrow. Oddly enough, it seems to be working so far. But what I have to commit to is never going to the local pastryContinue reading “A freefall into dietary failure!”
