Energy levels and motivation very low.
Let’s re-assess why I am doing this, I am hoping this helps:
1. More energy – ok not a great one to start on.
2. All the health benefits – true but I have an excruciating headache
3. To get faster going up hill – losing weight is the best way to make it easier to go up hill on your bike
4. Being able to fully enjoy my young family playing games and giving them an active Daddy
This really does help. But the second day of fasting has been hard.
I also have to admit that I cheated slightly today. I ate a small piece of dark chocolate, this has tipped me over to 700 calories today. I am hoping that the amount of cycling I am doing counter acts this.
The books says that at the beginning it can be hard. So I am determined to see the month out and then really report on how it is going.
That is it for today,
