(When possible, I will post twice a day – once in the morning and again later in the arvo. I’ll do my blood pressure in the arvo. I’ll also post info on fasting in the afternoon blog.)

I woke up early (4:30am) feeling refreshed and ready to start work for the day. Yes I felt a bit hungry, but nothing too bothersome.

On weighing myself I noticed that I’d dropped 1.6kg within a 24hr period. This didn’t surprise me – early in a fast the weight tends to drop off quickly.

What was interesting though is that my RHR – my Resting Heart Rate – dropped from 60bpm to 57bpm. It will be fascinating to see how that goes during the fast.

I have included a new marker in my stats – my duration of sleep. I have a FitBit Charge 3, and the sleep app associated with it is fairly accurate. So each day I’ll post how much sleep I’ve had. (I usually have a 20min kip in the afternoon as well.)

Late yesterday I took various vitamins. I will be taking these each day:

  • MultiVitamin (for males 50yrs+)
  • Mega B
  • Vit B12
  • Magnesium
  • Vit D
  • CoQ10
  • DHEA

So now it’s 5am and I’ve had my first (of two) double espressos and I’m ready to start work!

morning double espresso – that’s crema on top, not milk!
