The only thing that’s been tough about this phase so far is that I can’t salt my food.
It’s a basic human taste and one I miss, even though it’s only been three days since I’ve had it.
According to Wikipedia, “salt created and destroyed empires” and has “been a major factor in the outcomes of wars.”
I don’t want to incite a war or destroy an empire but I would like to make my fish taste better.
Still, there are a ton of good non-salt seasonings out there. (My favorite right now is a citrus blend.) So all in all, I’m doing OK.
On the training front, my workouts this week are a joke.
JB and Martin both suggested I go to the gym when I feel like it and do some light weight-lifting or cycling on the stationary bike. But I’m not obligated or even encouraged to do much more.
On a week like this, when I’m purposefully dehydrating myself, the last thing I need to do is pull a muscle or otherwise injure myself.
So this morning I went in and did a body-weight workout with lunges, push-ups, and chin-ups that only took 20 minutes from start to finish. It was cake.
Other than that, there’s not much to report. I am noticing I’m a little tired throughout the day. I don’t feel like I need a nap or anything, but sometimes I have a hard time focusing.
I still have 12 pounds to lose and only a few more days to do it in. I’m not nervous, but I’m also wondering if I’ll really be able to drop it all in time.
I have a suspicion that this stuff is about to become a lot harder.
