ehead's Journal, 18 October 2017

Holy s##ttake!! I've been fasting since 2pm Monday afternoon, so almost 44 hours now. Yesterday late afternoon, I got that super groggy, no energy drop, not feeling well vibe. I took more pink Himalayan salt water, but then when that didn't help, my mom suggested I take a nap for an hour on the empty floor of my friends' house, while mom continued to paint. I almost decided to eat afterwards, but fought through it. Around 8pm, we decided more coffee was in order, and since I still wasn't feeling the best, I had some heavy cream added to it. Within 15 minutes, I was feeling better. I'm sure the cream probably stopped the autophagy process of the fast, but I'm ok with that. It helped to keep me going. I feel great this morning, not hungry, so I'll continue my fast as well! Alton Brown is in town today, so I'm hoping to run into him at one of his favorite coffee shops here soon. I may need HWC in my coffee there as well. :)

Oh, and with my 4.2 pound loss from yesterday, this puts me at a new low too!
231.6 lb Lost so far: 137.2 lb.    Still to go: 81.6 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

I'm laughing because I just realized FS censored my use of the word shiitake, but probably because I spelled it with only one I and two Ts instead. Hahah! So judgy, FS, so judgy. I don't even like mushrooms!

Strange looks cause I'm laughing out loud in my office, but that's priceless! Best wishes on your Alton Brown sighting.

Holy s##ttake . . . Stealing this one to hopefully use soon as I approach my lowest number on FS. Great job on your fast and your new low.

ROFL! Alton is my dream guy...a foodie and a geek rolled into one. If you get his autograph, send it to me!

Unfortunately, I did not run into Alton Brown this time around. :(

Well done ! It's my understanding that a couple of tsp of cream, up to 50 cals worth, shouldn't affect autophagy.. when I'm fasting this is my pick me up and lack of cream ( left it in the fridge at work ) has caused me to break my fast. You're doing great ! 😁
