Meetings, Meetings, Meetings

Intermittent fasting is great, but occasionally, when some knucklehead in a different time zone schedules a long meeting at  the beginning of my “feeding window,” it can make for an extended fast. Like today! :) I didn’t eat my first meal until about 1:45pm due to a series of long conference calls. Here’s the great part, because I’m a fat burning machine, living in a ketogenic state, I barely even noticed. Don’t get me wrong, I was hungry, but I had no symptoms of low blood sugar, like dizziness or headache. If you are curious about ketosis and the benefits of ketogenic living, I highly recommend the book, Keto Clarity, by Jimmy Moore.

I woke up in a great mood, just a little tired. My FitBit One tracker shows my sleep time over the past few days dipping below the eight hour mark–not what my body needs for optimal health. :( Otherwise, I followed my preferred Primal/Paleo eating pattern , my only concern begin a very low calorie count. By the time my son and I got home from his evening swim practice, mental exhaustion had taken over and my body felt like a protein shake (so I whipped one up with my trusty Vitamix).

Looking forward to tomorrow morning’s workout–in the mean time, as always…

Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
