Mind, Body and Soul Transformation

img_0162

Here I am on day 4, and so far, all is well.  I haven’t bit my family yet due to starvation. So far, my one meal a day is working out pretty good for my body. The good thing about having one meal a day is I can have exactly what I want and zero guilt.

So that’s a win for me!

I remember when I was first starting out on my weight loss journey I, was so confused about what to eat. Being scared to eat took over my life, and I thought everything would put pounds on me.

AND IT DID!!!

I was overeating and my window for eating never closed. Sure, I wasn’t packing in 3000 calories, but I never gave my body time to rest. My digestive system was constantly in motion.

So here I am now doing what works for me. Intermittent fasting is my way of life. Eating one meal a day and one snack is balancing out my life. My eating window is set for 12:00pm and ends at 8:00 pm. Drinking water and tea throughout the day is encouraged.

So here is my one meal for today!

Don’t Feed Me After 7:45

When the sky darkens, and the clock strikes 10, the beast within comes out. My hair stands up on the back of my head, my nails grow and get as sharp as nails.
