February resolution

My January resolution was to be active at least five days a week. I did pretty well - the last week of the month was more like 4.5 days of activity. (On Sunday we walked a half mile to get pizza & frozen yogurt, and then walked home again.) I'm keeping this resolution in February and adding one:

More intermittent fasting. Specifically, fast at least 126 hours/week. That works out to 18 h/day but leaves room for a long fast one day and a relatively normal eating window another day.

I did 19h fasts M-W of this week, and I felt pretty good. I love the fact that I never get sleepy during the day - no need for a mid-afternoon nap or caffeination. Today was tough though - I had chocolate cake and ice cream last night (i.e. plenty of carbs & insulin), woke up hungrier than usual and did a CF workout at noon, which was about 14 hours into the fast. SUPER hungry all afternoon but made it to 18h.

Basically, I need to eat before CF and continue to avoid simple sugars. One of these days I'll work up to a 24h fast... not quite there yet though.
