Ok, I mean getting back on the Fasting wagon properly.
I have been doing the 5:2 intermittent fasting diet for over 2 months, but recently, I have been slipping. Not slipping as in not doing it, but choosing to go a bit over on the fasting day calorie amount, or choosing to do a juice fast instead, or a fruit and veg fast. Now, I know those other fasts are good and make me feel amazing too, but they don’t do the same thing that the 500 calorie day fasts do. So, back on it! And what better way to do it, than tell you guys and girls about it!
I’ve seen many bloggers write about their daily meals/calories and I do think writing it publicly makes you accountable for things you say you do. I want to continue doing the 5:2 fasting as it makes me feel amazing, and I wish it was more second nature, but it always takes me a while to form new habits. Blogging was a bit like that at the start, so hopefully blogging about it will help me with my fasting!

What do you think? Does telling more people about your aims, goals and progress make you more accountable for your actions?
