Thank you for all your comments, will be writing to you all soon but tonight I need to go to bed soon :)
Jury duty today. Legs surprisingly feeling a little better :)
Monday early food at midnight 650.
Lunch: leftover tilapia on a wrap with lettuce and mustard and a drink 300 approx. and coffee decaf 50.
1100 so far, good.
Snack: 250 protein bar
Dinner: leftover chicken and fish around 350?, sautéed broccoli and garlic 100?, sautéed mushrooms 100? and fruit 100?, around 650-700.
2050 :) very good.
All in all, God was definitely watching over me today. I consider myself very lucky for how well today played out for me. Goodnight.
Exercise: 1 back exercise, one side abs exercise, and 20 minutes (not fully continuous) of the arm (upper body cardio) cycling machine. Next time I will exercise is probably Thursday with the arm cycle, not Wednesday bc I will be late to work that day bc of dr - so I may have OT. We will see :) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Sunday - Early breakfast and snack 1200 cal. High fat and protein mostly. Fast till Monday morning now, little under 24hrs. No weight loss this week, hopefully just maintenance and not weight gain! Bc I didn't really have a calorie deficit even with 1200 cals today bc all week was high at least 2000-2200 calories Monday thru Friday. Either way, 1200 cals today will be helpful.
Because I am on an anti inflammatory that needs to be taken with food, and if I am feeling pain, it is hard to skip eating and not take the medicine. So I do eat breakfast and don't fast....either way, 1200 cals today is good!
1420 cals, could be worse.

Was debating fasting till dinner but legs hurt in am so had some food - and too many of the second package of gummy omega 6 vitamins but don't regret it!! Was good and when I finish them I prob won't buy them ever again! And these were the less sweet ones and I still had multiple servings lol. Around 40 gummies at 10 calories each, some cranberry preserves I made and 3 other vitamin chews. Also an emergency-c packet. Not food but didn't really even want breakfast but had to have something in my stomach in order to take the anti inflammatory. Total around 450 cal. Fine. Big meal tonight so fasting till then so I can enjoy what I order. Then fasting till Monday morning....I can do it....fasting the whole day tomorrow. If I can't fully make it I will have dinner on Sunday but I plan to fast - I have no plans so that can make it difficult.
Ate some leftover collard greens I had cooked I think Thursday night?
Decadent snacking on rich chocolate nut butter mixed in with cooked bran, cinnamon, stevia. Was worth breaking a fast. Also lots of fat so now I will not be as inclined to order a fatty dish at dinner, probably shrimp. Going out to eat :). 400 cal. Also lots of fiber in this brand. So good. From GNC, high protein and high fiber.
1050, full out worth it. Not sure if my plans tomorrow. But can't imagine fasting overnight till Monday right now. Probably a dinner with meat and a dessert involving the nut butter.

2200 extremely filling calories. Goodnight. No exercise. Very boring but also confusing project today at work. Like doing an endless page of math multiplication tables as soon as you learn how to multiply - it can be done but it may take forever. My mind was wandering and I couldn't keep the negative thoughts away. I was upset most of the day at work bc all I could think about was how I am stuck. I can't join the academy bc my legs are *hopefully* recovering. But what if I don't get better? I have a coworker who is in vaca now. He used to run Marathons and now he is in really crappy shape compared to 15 years ago when he was 25. It makes me so sad. It's not that he doesn't care. Not at all! There is just not enough time in the day or hours to counteract a desk job and a commute. If he couldn't get his body to maintain his fitness how am I ever gonna get mine back into working order. It's like the academy is a no-go.
My boss said I could leave at 4:30 and damn straight I did.
How am I ever gonna get better if my job doesn't agree. I need to not work any overtime and to relax. I am starting to give up. It is too upsetting for me to deal with. My legs are driving me crazy. I am serious.

Snacking - pretzels 100, fruit 100, gummies 50. Low cal drink total here 250
Still gonna have a little more for dinner.
Total 2550, decent, indulged in a couple wraps with peanut butter.

Friday fasted all day. Now it's Saturday and doing it all over again. It feels damn good to be able to follow thru with this! Gotta make the right choices Sunday at the lunch party - Chinese and Japanese. I will see - if not a lot of healthy food, I can eat just a little and grab some veggies somewhere else after. It's a buffet, so counting on there being at least steamed veggies
Decided at 4pm to have a meal at home. Very healthy but bc of the extra olive oil in the sauteed cabbage, calories added up. Also some turkey in a wrap and a small protein bar for dessert. Around 1000 calories prob at most.
So burned 400-500 calories today instead of 1500-1700 fine :)
Over these two days, approx 2500 cals were burned. Plan is to think about how I am going to handle next weekend :)
Basically these 2500 that I cut balance out most of the unhealthy eating from the past couple weeks. Still I am probably up in weight a little but this was an excellent start. Now to not eat again till tomorrow at the brunch...ok had a lil More food around 6 while on the phone (almonds and some nut butter). So burned around 2000 this weekend - Friday and Saturday , that's pretty darn good for two days.

1000 cal breakfast. Binged on gummy fish oil vitamins, will not buy again. Wat too sugary and the Nature Made brand tastes like candy! I have one more bottle at home, different brand, little less sweet. I originally planned to only have butter in my tea and save all caliries for dinner. Well now I have half calories saved till dinner.
After tonight...fast all day fri and sat? And then a brunch party Sunday....
Dinner was normal portions aside from extra roasted / sauteed veggies but that is in! Had a very small piece of brisket and a normal piece of pumpkin pie. Did good. Proud of myself for finally having just one slice of that pie.
Fasting is really just a mental game. I may be hungry later and probably much more at night....but, it's a game and I will eat normally without binging when it's over. Fasting till Sunday means approx one pound weightless. If I don't help myself, nobody will.
I am thinking to rest up one more month. Till the new year. Then back to recovery. Leg wise. Fasting is going to be a method of weight loss and not just maintenance. Just a few more weekends till the new year. I think my plan may be dinner only on Saturdays if with friends and fasting all day Sunday's. This may be too much. May have to rethink it - but really excited for this current fast thru Sunday at noon - lucky I have no stress and the ability to fast now.
This is by far one the most challenging of times in my life - my legs. I do think it I am doing a better job with it now - having patience.
Here is my activities for the next month and longer - reading, tv lol, studying from the police exam study manuals I bought last year, and maybe cooking - experimenting more.
Have a great day :)
