May Mile Marker

I continue to move closer to my Marathon Weight.  My average weight for May was 185.0lbs.  Down from 186.2 in April.  Yay!

As I’ve mentioned before, Intermittent Fasting is a back and forth kind of dance. That’s why I track my average weight.  During May, my weight went as high as 189.4lbs and as low as 182.1lbs.

This was the first month in a long time where I didn’t do a multi-day fast.  I only fasted on the weekdays.  But I kept up the longer fasts during the week.  Most days I would start my fast around 9pm and finish it around 5pm the next day. 

That twenty hour fast seems to be my current sweet spot.

I cut out watching TV during the week, which also eliminated some of my night snacking.  But I still snacked on the weekends.  There’s definitely a link between late night TV watching and snacking.

On the exercise front, I’ve been getting a little lax with the 7-Minute workout.  I’m still running two or three times a week.  My pace is slow, but I’ve increased the amount of time that I run.  I’m up to about 55 minutes which, according to my Garmin, works out to about 5km.

For June, I’ll keep up more of the same.  Rinse and repeat!  I might throw in a multi-day fast to help move the scale a bit.  And I want to be more consistent with the 7-Minute workout on the days that I don’t run.

It feels like my Marathon Weight is within my reach…
