So if you take out the fact that I am still a fat pig, today was an excellent day! This is for several reasons: 1) I didn't eat anything, 2) I worked out for 30 minutes, and 3) there's a potential boy in my life. It's the second day of the fast, and honestly, I'm not even hungry. I'm sure this won't last, as it never does, but it is a glorious feeling. I've been sure to drink lots of water and take a multivitamin. I kind of miss the hunger pains, though, because I always feel successful when my stomach growls. Of course, that's assuming it doesn't growl (which it does) when it's quiet around me because that's just embarrassing. It's too bad there's no way to silence an empty stomach...I mean, you can stifle a sneeze, quiet a cough, etc., but the stomach? That little guy has a will of its own!
I felt so out of shape working out today though. It's probably had something to do with my lack of eating, but still! I was only on the elliptical, which can hardly be called working out as it is. The elliptical is a wondrous machine for burning calories because you can go for a long time and it isn't rough on your joints. However, it doesn't get you in shape at all. But to be huffing and puffing on that thing? Yeah, I have a long way to go to whipping myself back into shape. Fortunately, I'm done with class tomorrow around 4, so I am going to work out again then. There's this other gym that's much bigger that I like to go to during the day because it's sooo motivating. I'm very exciting, and I desperately need to do a lot of ab exercises to fix these, um, "flabs" that I have going on. If I'm going to be seeing this boy in a few weeks (he's not in the area), then I need to make sure I look good!
And to anyone who's doing the fast (if anyone???), then good luck and please let me know how you're doing! We can stay strong together :)
