Well, back at it! I fell off the wagon yesterday having a few beers during the day. Honestly the guilt is overwhelming now. Normally I wouldn’t have cared and got on with it. That’s the positive that I can take away. No beers tonight or tomorrow and we’ll see about Friday/Saturday. Getting back on the horse after falling off is essential. At this point there’s not much benefit to drinking, especially noticing how good I feel when I don’t.
I thought that I made it through the day yesterday without hernia issues, but they’re back this morning. I’m worried about my back. Not sure how to handle it either. Do I keep blazing onwards or do I shut it down for a bit? I’ll continue to keep an eye on it today.
I’ve been reading this book about Fasting by Jason Fung and I understand his thesis, but can’t really connect with it. He believes that it’s all about hormones, which I can agree to an extent. I just don’t see how fixing your hormones is going to automatically fix your weight. I guess he’s trying to get to the point about fasting and it’s importance in your diet. While I agree that you can’t out run a fork, if you’re smart on how you approach your lifestyle then really calorie counting doesn’t matter. Obviously avoiding sugar like the plague is essential. However, if you’re smart, workout hard I feel like you maintain your weight. I’ve done it since 2006 with decent success and various hormonal protocols.
