    There’s s good amount of IF videos on YouTube and I watched a lot and researched before I started doing it and found it quite helpful

    It works. I've lost about 10 lbs since August doing this/eating less in general. I haven't changed my diet really or worked out at all.

    I'm not big on eating in the morning, so IF is real nice for me. Due to my schedule my window is generally 12-9/10pm, and I haven't had any real problems. More maintenance than weight loss at this point for me.

    I work about 7 AM and need breakfast. So I will generally make oatmeal mixed with protein and some Greek yogurt. It’s simple but effective.

    I do an 18/6 fast sun-thu just because it works best for my schedule. There's a ton of other benefits linked to fasting aside from weight loss like anti-inflammation, cognitive health, anti-cancer, etc. I wrote a paper on it a while ago, actually. It's neat stuff.

    I did my 5K yesterday but I had no energy and walked a good portion of it and finished 8 minutes slower than last week. Still happy with myself for doing it, but I'm gonna take a nap and then try again tonight I think

    Kinda tweaked my right tricep doing bench presses over the weekend, I hope a night off from the gym helps it recover a bit. Otherwise I might pick up some rock tape.

    Going hardcore keto again and it’s plucking me up. Having to go to restroom every hour lol. As I have forced myself to drink gallons of water to allow the process to work.

    I started intermittent fasting today. So far so good, it’s really not a problem for me. It already made me find out that I’m fine with drinking my coffee black now though which somehow makes me feel old as fuck, haha.

    You look like bad news, I gotta have you Prestigious

    I've been slacking. I love my gym but part of me wants to switch to the 24hr gym because the Ltd hours are annoying. Like today it doesn't open until 8 but I need to leave town at 9 and it gives me like no time. I hate feeling rushed at the gym. And I'm awake now, but it's not open. And knowing me I'll get tired and fall back asleep like right when I should be getting up for the gym. Sigh.

    24hr gym is amazing! I got here at 6am, and have the place to myself.

    I’m getting a personal trainer for Jan-Mar and doing Gold’s Gym Challenge. His client last year won the $5,000 prize for our age group.

    At first I thought “what’s Jan-Mar? Some kind of competition?”

    I’ve been up three hours and I’m not still not fully awake it seems.

    There's def pros and cons. My current gym is the one everyone I know is signed up for so it can be a nice social thing if a friend wants to go. Plus it has the indoor pool I can take my nephew to and the sauna and stuff. The 24hr one has none of that but costs the same. But has better hours obv. Idk idk. I want the best of both worlds!!

    I’m almost at the point where I think I could go shirtless at the pool and be comfortable.

    Last few years I’ve worn a shirt into pool.

    I started wearing swimsuit tops a few years ago after just refusing to swim for years. I wasn't even smart enough to wear a shirt I just like wouldn't swim and I'd die in the heat. But I still can't wear bottoms because I get super self conscious cause women's bottoms are rly just underwear with different material. I always have to wear like shorts made for water and I feel insecure. One day!

    Well, actually, I might continue wearing shirts into the pool as I won’t have to apply so much sunscreen lol.

    Me everyday: I'm gonna have a stomach like Britney Spears circa 2003!

    Also me: eat all the pasta and bread.

    Sigh such conflicting interests lol. I think I could do it in moderation tho. But I have a hard time turning down food because it's such a treat/reward in my head. Like last night I had dinner with a friend and wasn't even hungry so I should've ordered a drink or a small side or something but I was like NAW GOTTA HAVE ALL THE FOOD CAUSE IT'S A TREAT. I didn't rly eat any of it which is also wasteful, but it's a hard habit to break. Like I'm convinced if I don't get all the fries or all the bread every single time it's just the worst thing ever, even tho I feel fine after eating like a side salad with my meal. I know I can still eat fries, but I don't need them EVERY TIME. I was good at making these little changes for a while but I've gone back to emotional and impulsive eating
