Intermittent Fasting: Day 5 including weigh in


DAY 5:  INTERMITTENT FASTING
19 JANUARY 2017

OVERALL:
Today was a little different in that I felt hungry from about 8am and on.  Yesterday I didn't get hungry until about an hour from my breakfast.  Although  a little frustrating, I still felt good overall.  Energy and mood are staying high and happy!   

Although I overate at lunchtime by accident (not from eating too fast, just not paying attention to satiety levels), I felt great once the overeating symptoms passed about an hour after.  Overall, this was a very productive day. 

I even had excess energy to go for a spontaneous walk after dinner!
