Will this be the first time you've done this? I'm really curious to see how it works out for you. Good luck! :D

@Lyric Thanks! I can't say I'm back into the lifting scene, but today's diet went well.
@Rob Yeah I've done this before, although for only 2 weeks. I'm going to see how rapid the weight loss is, since my intent is not to loss tons of weight.

The fast has been going well, no cravings or missing marks.

Woke up this morning alive and radiant after a seemingly difficult night of restlessness. Upon wake I decided to spend approximately 15 mins of yoga stretches. Which eventually turned into 5 min planks, then 3 sets of 25 push ups, leading into parallel dips between my bed and comfy reading chair. I was unsure as to how many dips I did as I was moreorless in a trance focusing purely on the sensation in my mid to upper back. Being unsure on how to interpret the discomfort, I decided to stop and go do something else, mainly laundry.

I have no idea if I am going to make this a routine, but the stretching is something that I see as beneficial and calming. I will make it a point to incorporate that.

Went 5 days in a row before I unintentionally broke my fast while being asked to taste if the steamed white rice was cooked right. Then I went another 3 days before I woke up and ate some frozen fruits. This occasional break in fast occurred every 3 days or so between the stress of work and the comfort of spending time with loved ones. Work has been picking up here the past few weeks and I've been working anywhere from 48 to 52 hours a week with two 12 hour split shifts. Hopefully work will stabilize here in the upcoming week before I start thinking about hitting the gym.

I have yet to revisit a strict eating schedule nor have I done anything serious when it comes to putting together a warm up routine in anticipation for next FRI doctor's release. I have moreorless just been enjoying life and eating whenever I can get something in. Of course I haven't overeaten or binged and my weigh has been proportionate to that, as I am smaller than I'd like to me. I have reset my food alarms and intend to start toting around my protein and carb shakes around.

@Lyric No I had eating timers during the fast, but just kept it down to four a day, instead of the six to eight.

@lobeteriffic Thank you. I cannot wait until the ortho release here come FRI.
