I'm not gonna lie Day 1 was rough - physically and psychologically. I didn't know how I was going to get through the day. Everywhere I looked were things I could not eat. I had no idea what to do with myself. But I bit the bullet and plowed through. I went to sleep pretty early on Day 1.
I was surprised how not hungry I was when I woke up after Day 1. I made it to the gym - though not with the same vigor as normal but I will blame that on the previous week in Chicago and stuffing my face and not sleeping. Another surprise was that I did not feel the need to "make up" the calories from the fast day. I ate pretty normally (i.e. - very well) and felt fine - clocking in at a cool 1700 calories.
But Day 2 is starting off much better. I stocked up on a few pantry items and the psychological hurdle today is much lower and there is no dread. So YEAH!
