Ooops and then BOOM!

It turns out the meal replacement powder had arrived and my lovely wife Tracey insists she told me this (to be fair she probably did, she is more organized than me). I had bought PROMR powder from eBay because it came with a free shaker and was the cheapest I could find. It is pre-measured into sachets, which I think is better at this stage. When you look at the MR in a tub with a scope the amount is never easily divisible (e.g. how many 80 gram scopes in 1 kg? It’s 12 and a HALF).

That said I decided to start my fast yesterday as I was in a positive mindset and raring to go. I planned to only drink water, black or lemon tea and 2 of the MR drinks (around 300 calories each). I had one MR drink at 13:00 and the other one at 20:00 (once I’d put the kids to bed). One of the ‘problems’ I encountered was that my son left a bit of his evening meal (he is 4 y.o.) and I usually scoff his leavings. It was half way to my hellish maw before I remembered.

Overall I found the fast easier than I thought it would be. I did think about food a fair bit and planned what I’d munch back today (I can eat ANYTHING I want!), but surprisingly I found I wasn’t as hungry as I though this morning. I’ve only had a cup of tea with milk and 2 rounds of toast and marmalade.

I also discovered that I do eat lots of rubbish when I’m bored. It’s not like I don’t have hobbies and interests but it is hard to get going on these after a day at work and a few hours with the kids. Come eight o’clock at night I just want to veg out in front of the telly but this will have to change I feel.

I weighed myself yesterday. Twenty three and one half stone or one hundred and fifty kilograms – I feel it needs writing down in words.
