Porridge was alright, despite using half water instead of all milk.
This will be my first day of Fasting on a day where I am doing proper exercising- swimming in this case. I didn’t want to fast yesterday as I had a riding lesson and I didn’t want to risk that I’d feel all weak and be useless in my lesson, so had to fast today instead. I will prob take it fairly easy at swimming and see how I feel. I used to run in the mornings prior to eating breakfast, so should be alright with swimming on a Fast Day. Will see. Luckily the pools not v deep so if I tire I shan’t be drowning! 😛
12.54pm – tummy gurgly for food. Trying to hold off as long possible, to give myself the most energy for swimming. If I ignore the gurgling I should be able to last a bit longer, maybe I will have lunch at 2pm. Hahaha, I have ONE dried apricot as my pre-swimming snack, how ridiculous is that! Thought a little burst of easily digestible sugar would be good just before I swim, although 1 dried apricot is a bit laughable!
8.15pm – Just had dinner, yum, mouth’s burning from the chilli now! 🙂 Swimming went ok, did about 40 minutes. I was a bit tired as predicted, but whether that was because I was tired from my (horse) riding lesson yesterday or the Fasting I’m not sure.
All in all, the Fast Day went just fine today. My next one is going to be Thursday, as I don’t want to do it on a Friday again. Could be interesting as Thursdays is my running club day but we’ll see how I go. If I have to shuffle round my 5k Iwill! 😛
Weight in tomorrow….. :-S nervous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
