Day #2 – Intermittent Fasting

Well day #2 is here and I got my workout in this morning. 22 Minute Hard Corp with Tony Horton. Love that guy!

I was feeling tired this morning though and not wanting to get out of bed. My throat is a bit sore. Its going around so I am not surprised. So I will be drinking a lot of immune building tea today. Surprisingly not hungry this morning, which is not normal. I am usually pretty hungry after my workouts in the mornings, so I am embracing it. This is much easier than I thought it would be.

I have had many people ask me why I am doing this, so I wanted to take a minute to explain.

Health is of the utmost importance to me and consistently improving(through health and mind) is as well. I like to constantly move forward, stagnant is difficult for me. So I enjoy trying new things and challenging myself…

The idea and/or concept behind IF follows many of my natural/earthy beliefs.

Some people who subscribe to primal eating behaviors believe that in caveman times food was not always available and therefore humans were forced to fast intermittently. They have carried it forward and believe that the body is geared towards it and benefits from it. They have numerous studies to support their beliefs and use them to support IF.

However, as all things in life, though. I am a big believer in balance. Too much of anything is bad. So with that I am looking forward to lunch and enjoying my Shakeology as I type.
