The first weeks blog can be found further down for anybody that’s interested, if nobody is interested I am finding it helpful, lol.
0700, I fish on a Sunday, leaving the house about 7am and returning at 6pm, so fitting in walks and a 16 hour intermittent fast on a Sunday isn’t on, I was 6.8 when I tested last Monday and 6.4 today. So out for the first walk of the day, 1350 steps, followed by the first coffee, bliss.
1000, broke my 16 hour intermittent fast with my usual breakfast, 2 scrambled eggs with cheese, mushrooms and 3 rashers of bacon and my second coffee with milk. 6 carbs. Then went for my second walk of the day, 2600 steps banked and home to my first litre bottle of water.
1215, third walk of the day, 3850 steps banked ! I am beginning to find these walks quite addictive, tempting to up them, but don’t want to end up coughing up blood again.
1315, quiche for lunch, I don’t eat the crust or base so only count the eggs, right or wrong, 2 carbs. Followed this with my fourth walk of the day 5100 steps banked.
1700 off for another walk before diner, going to aim for 7500 a day this week, 6550 banked and one to go.
1730, diner, chicken tikka from marks, 17 carbs, so 25 carbs today.
1830, will be the last walk of the day 7,800 steps.
