Day 4 Intermittent Fasting

It is midnight in the UK and it is 1am here in Barcelona. I am sat at the airport waiting for my connection flight, so I thought I could use the time to update my blog. Though I would much more prefer to take a nap, but Barcelona’s airport does not cater for naps, unless you are willing to lay on the floor. I am not that desperate, at least not yet.

Today/ Yesterday 🙂 – referring to Thursday –  has been rather a busy day, but fasting still went according to the plan. Had a busy morning but my connection of food and exercise kicked in again in the morning. Had personal training clients at 9.30am, when we finished the session at 10.30am my brain was telling me to eat. We are creatures of habits and we usually give in when our habits kick in. I think it is important to challenge ourselves, step out of our comfort zone and check who is in charge – us or our habits?

My first meal was a chocolate shake with oats and almond milk around 12am.


I had my second meal/snack at 2pm in Costa – Latte with soya milk and a ham and cheese panini. I seem to either love coffee or not drink it at all. I am definitely now having the coffee drinking period when I get to have a cup of coffee several times a week. But it is one of the habits that I want to work on and give my body a break from coffee. I know I can do as I had a coffee detox before when I had no coffee for months.

Today we had dinner at the Luton Airport. I must say I was quite disappointed by the low number of restaurant choices there. The airport was really busy and there were just 2 restaurants to dine in – a buger place and a Frankie & Benny’s, both had long queues of people waiting, we decided to go to Frankie & Benny’s. I had a salad with salmon and sweet potato fries. The salmon and sweet potato fries were lovely, salad was pretty blend. But hey, it filled the tummy.


The good thing is that I managed to fit in food within my 8 hours eating window despite traveling. However I wonder how is it gonna be the next few days as evening meals are planned 8pm onwards…Well, I will keep you posted.

Let me know if you are going to give fasting a go and please do share your experience!
