Ok, so I just finished my 2nd week of intermittent fasting, and I have to say it’s a piece of cake now. I did not get hunger pains anymore. Obviously, I was hungry, but I wouldn’t get headaches or anything like the way I did the 1st couple of days. My body feels like it normalized.
I had read some pointers that you should not attempt physical activity until you see how your body responds to the fasting, so I decided to wait it out just in case I felt too weak. Lucky for me, I feel great and ready to proceed to incorporating workouts now.
My plan is to do cardio and light weight exercises on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and then I’ll do heavy weights on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I read many articles about how it is important to include weight lifting and exercise when you fast because otherwise, you will begin to lose muscle mass, and that’s not what I want.
I don’t want to weigh myself this week because I don’t want to only focus on the numbers on the scale. However, I will be taking pictures on a daily basis to track the physical changes in my body, which I will probably post in my next post for an update.
After generously donating to my gym $35 a month for months now, I think it’s about time I finally make use of what I’m paying for. Wish me luck!
Any pointers in workouts would be much appreciated!
