100 days of OMAD: 29
Thursday, April 19, 2018
Time is flying by and the blog has been neglected for a week!Becoming quiet mostly means that I have fallen of the wagon and am eating but not this time. In fact this week has been "perfect" OMAD, maybe it is because I have concentrated on just doing it without bothering about what I eat for that meal. One thing at the time – I need to get this habit of eating just one meal a day stablebefore I bother about the contents of that meal. It means that I have been eating pancakes this week as well as bacon&eggs for one meal...To be honest it does not feel right, I donn´t dare to weigh-in although doing that last week showed a small loss.
Tuesday I had a yearly check-in with my doctor. I was nervous because I was sure that my bloodpressure would be too high, I have not exercised as planned after easter and although I am losing weight it is very slow... but it was great! 120/80 is very satisfactory and I was so relieved - this has gnawed in the back of my head and I caused more anxiety than I have been aware of.
Doctor thought that it was the c-pap-machine that had helped, it motivates me to keep on struggling with it, it´s not easy but if it helps it´s worth the effort.
He also wanted blood samples "fasting" - and as I am on OMAD and this was eleven in the morning I told him that I was fasting - I told him about OMAD but I don´t think he really listened he did not comment at all... anyway I had this blood test and yesterday I could read the resultas online... it seems that everything is great - kolesterol,blodd glucose, sodium, potassium - everything is in the range of healthiness so I am VERY happy ! And I do think it is OMAD that helped me with this as my exercise is not that good for the moment and I still have a lot of weight to lose.
My brain ghosts brawls a lot and give me all sorts of insane ideas about eatingduring the day. One is telling me constantly that as my meal is not "perfect" in health aspect, I might as well eat more times and start over eating "normal" and find a better diet... the most intriguing part is that I keep on although I feel like I am failing all the time. But I can see that I stay away from eating 23 hours a day, that is a massive achievement!
A gold star for me!
