Hello, I have a day in the life post all about how I get through one of my two fast days I do each week. Back in September I wrote a post all about me doing the 5:2 diet which you can read here. I have been doing the 5:2 since February so now my fast days are pretty easy to do not always but most of the time. This week I fasted Monday and I will be doing today and this post is about Mondays...
8.30am - Alarm goes off and I am feeling good after a great nights sleep, it helps I got to sleep in a little this morning! I get up, dressed and sort my face : )
8.45am - Make a hot water with lemon and catch up on my social media sites.
9am - Make a almond milk latte with 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar - 43 calories
9.45am - Time to drive to my sports massage appointment. I am glad to report my back is pretty much sorted but I will continue to have my sports massages every six weeks.
10.45am - Get home crack open a 2 litre bottle of water, guzzle a quarter of it then get my front room ready for my first client.
11.15am - First client arrives
12.15pm - Client leaves, I drink more water then talk to Dale on the phone for half hour. He always calls me on his lunch break : )
1pm - I do a workout with my Skype client, just 30 minutes which is enough for me when fasting!
1.30pm Get freshened up, drink a peppermint tea
2pm - Boil two medium eggs and eat with a little salt - 130 calories
2.30pm - Look through emails briefly as I need to get ready for my next client
3pm - Train my next client
4pm - Go back to my emails and start replying etc and drink a peppermint tea
6pm - Start to get dinner prepared for when Dale gets home.
6.30pm Cook our dinner
7pm - Eat! I had baked lemon and garlic salmon with veggies - 360 calories
7.30pm - 9.30pm - Chill on the sofa with Dale watching TV
10pm - Bed : )
Total Daily Calories - 513
Just slightly over on my calories on Monday but still a good fast in my book! I always do a Monday because it starts off the week well and its a day I am usually not too crazy busy. I drink at least 2 litres of water which fills me up and keep myself doing something all day. Sometimes I just have a coffee in the morning then water up until dinner it really depends on the day and how I am feeling.
