Anyone hear of the 5/2 diet? I was dubious at first but I’d already read all about intermittent fasting a couple years ago so i know it’s legit and there’s nothing wrong with it if that’s what works for you. I know I said I wouldn’t count calories but I’m a stats and numbers kind of girl and if I don’t know what my numbers are i feel like I may as well eat the whole pizza!
A lot of people get nervous about someone saying they eat 500 to 1000 calories in a day because that sounds a bit disordered doesn’t it? It’s not though if it’s only 2 days a week. If you start thinking you can do this every day or five days a week that’s disordered and you need to back off. It’s not healthy, it’s not ok. But if you’re keeping it really low two days a week, not back to back, that’s just fine if it works for you. Personally, I hate restricting my calories so if I’m going to do it I’m going to really go for it, but as little as possible.
It didn’t work out very well for me this week. Sometimes you can do it, sometimes it’s too hard. I’m not going to beat myself up over it, I’m just going to move on and try again next week.
So I put together this lovely outfit for your viewing pleasure. I had a great time and it took my mind off not eating (I hadn’t failed yet.) Hope you like it.
