ADF Hardcore, Day 10: Halfway There

First of all, serious props to Jake for getting below the 2xx mark. 🙂   It also seems that through him, we’ve set off another wave of ADF proselytes.  He has a friend who has decided to try it, and we have apparently inspired two people on a forum we both frequent to give it a try too.  Jake thinks I should write a book. 😉

ADF Hardcore, Day 9: The Accidental Vegetarian

Pangie would be proud of me.  I realized today that for all intents and purposes, I’ve been a vegetarian for over two weeks now.  I didn’t make this a goal or anything; I’ve never been especially attached to meat anyway, which is why my Lenten moratorium on meat was sort of a weird time for me.  I do LIKE meat, and there are lots of meat dishes I enjoy, but as a rule I don’t tend to crave it.

ADF Hardcore, Day 8: One Week Down!

I woke up this morning and weighed myself.  169.2.  I didn’t check the Wii Fit because there wasn’t time; I had to get to work.  But still… 169.2 is definitely below the 170 mark, so I’ll take it.

ADF Hardcore, Day 7: Pickle Springs

Today was my first Sunday off of work in months.  My ‘department’ at work is comprised of myself and my supervisor, so when she’s off of work I am usually on.  Her ‘weekend’ each week is Sunday-Monday, so those two days (during the summer, at least, when the facility is open on Mondays) are constants for me.  However, due to either a scheduling mistake or just a moment of clemency on behalf of my supervisor, I was given today off.

ADF Hardcore, Day 6: Oh Blessed Weekend!

Wow… You know, if there’s one thing that makes this diet totally worth whatever trouble it is, it’s the weekends.  Two glorious days of zero guilt.

ADF Hardcore, Day 5: Fussy Tummy

Days like this make me glad I handle my fasting days the way I do.  Today is the last fasting day of the week before the wonderful two days of eating that comprise the weekend.

However, I’m now remembering why it is that Up Days the first time around were not just a free-for-all after awhile.  On one hand, I felt a certain responsibility to eat decent things on Up Days just because whatever I ate that day was the only nutrition I was getting… but that created another reason not to eat junk food: my body started to get a little fussy.

ADF Hardcore, Day 4: Om nom nom

Yesterday went pretty well.   I wasn’t working, which meant slogging through the fasting at home.  That’s never easy; at work I obviously have plenty to do to and not a lot of freedom that would allow me to eat just anytime I like.  At home, I still have plenty to do, but the kitchen is open 24/7 and only too happy to accommodate me.  There’s also the matter of feeding the kids, which means avoiding the kitchen entirely simply isn’t an issue.
