My sleep was deep but short this night. I woke up at 2.45 am fully awake and energized. It was impossible to go back to sleep, so I got up and did some minor work-related tasks. Mostly internet stuff, preparing new websites and services, and such. Also, resting heart rate down 1 bmp since yesterday – and a total of 5 bmp since the start of the fast.
My breaths per minute is also down from 13 to 12, which is excellent. BR is usually in the range of 12 to 20. And resting heart rate is fluctuating a bit between 59 and 54. Morning weight at 71 kg, only 300 grams down since yesterday.
Still no hunger and not even a feeling of emptiness in the stomach. I feel kind of full drinking my electrolyte water with ice-cubes. Yeah, I know, not the smartest thing to do when you’re feeling colder than normal, but I put on an extra sweater. I just love my water cold.
With that being said, I do look forward to tomorrow when I will break my fast with some fish roe and raw liver, followed by a steak tartare a few hours later.
In the afternoon and early evening, I felt a little bit tired, but it passed rather quickly. I’ve also noticed some itching and almost like muscle spasm from the area where I still have a tumor in my leg. Almost feels like cells are being replaced. Funny feeling.
Other than that, I haven’t felt much this time around. I guess my body is in pretty good condition and not much needed to be flushed out or fixed (except for the shrinking tumor).
The first part of the training program I mentioned yesterday is finished. I’m now working on part 2 and 3. It will be a 12-week bodybuilding program for the intermediate and advanced trainee. Similar to my older very successful programs, but with some cool tweaks.
Today’s photo is from this forenoon after visiting the tanning salon and when I just had cut my hair. I’m a little flat now. I can clearly see that I lost a lot of water from inside the muscle cells. But muscle loss should be minimal on a 5-day fast. And even if you lose a few grams, those will be gained back after the first training session and re-feed.
