I had another go at intermittent fasting today. You can tell that I’m keen to make this a regular part of my eating plan. As I said the science behind it is solid. And I drink a LOT of milky tea each day so I just want to give my body a break a couple of times a week. Also, I went clothes shopping last night and it was depressing being forced to buy size 14 instead of size 12 and large instead of medium. Not that I’m panicking about weight or anything but I do want to be healthy.
Instead of starting my fast after breakfast I timed it from my last cup of tea last night. I also had some green tea to help me through the day. I’ve always enjoyed drinking green tea at Asian restaurants but never found a brand I liked to drink at home before. Yesterday I brought one from a tea store I trust and the women who sold it to me said the key was not to pour boiling water onto the tea but to add some cold water to the pot first. And voila, for the first time ever I made drinkable green tea.
I didn’t make it to the 24 hour mark but I did hold out till 6 o’clock which is about 20 hours. And as far as I’m concerned that’s winning. I’m not a masochist or anything. It’s important to cherish the small victories in life, don’t you think? Have you had any recently?
