Missed yesterday’s post due to an early start this morning and needed to get to bed.Â It was a hard day yesterday.Â Teaching Kid’s Karate Day Camp 9-12.Â Sandra woke up feeling like throwing up and needed a little extra to get through teaching duties, so she got some barley sugars.Â A few of those seemed to be enough to perk her up again, at least enough to get by.
I was feeling really hungery and a bit light headed throughout the day.Â But managed to push through, during mid afternoon I had to lie down for a bit of a siesta before classes started in the afternoon.Â It was a hard day yesterday.
Needed to finish up relatively early last night to teach early morning and day classes today.Â Today was completely different to yesterday, woke up with lots of energy, I got a bit more physically involved with the classes.
After the day class we went to Woolworths to get a few things (cleaning products, in case you’re wondering).Â I have to say it was hard to walk around all that food knowing that I wasn’t going to have anything.Â Instincively I wanted to go to the chocolate isle, but resisted the urge.
Emotions – Yesterday, took a lot of focus to stay in control.Â Today was a breeze in comparison.Â If it’s like what I’ve heard, I might be over the hump.
Hunger – Vary hard to be around food.Â Especially preparing food for the kids.Â That’s the main time that I feel hungry.Â That, and when I’m sitting down doing nothing.Â And there hasn’t been much of that lately, fortunately.
Mental Focus – Yesterday, all my focus was just on getting to the end of the day.Â Today, it’s been a completely different day, I have really been able to live in the moment of each part of the day, except while at Woolworths…
Physical Changes – Tonge is really white, and I think my sense of taste is getting better.Â The taste of the salt is starting to get to me and I can really taste the chlorine in the tap water.Â Went to put my belt on my shorts and I’ve gone done a notch.Â Also jumped on Wii Fit and my BMI is down in the ideal range.Â Down to 89kg (-4kg so far).Â My body shape is starting to change a bit now, another 5kg and I’ll be back to the weight I was when I left school.Â Which was really a bit underweight I think, because I was so physically active at that time.
Still not really sure where this is all going, but I’m feeling pretty good now and still happy to see it through (at this stage).Â By see it through, I mean keep going without food until I have a pink tongue again, whenever that is.
