Egg Fast Day 2

Well, y’all, I decided to continue my egg fast today with no real forethought and mostly because I still have about 3 dozen eggs in the fridge to consume.

Keto Macro Cakes

I truly fasted this morning and had only coffee for breakfast with no HWC or anything in it. Absolutely no calories until I got home and made Keto Macro Cakes at around 2:00 PM. I halved the recipe and substituted collagen powder for the protein powder ’cause I haven’t bought a keto-friendly protein powder yet. They turned out pretty well! Halving the recipe gave me around 7 cakes and I ate them all with delight.

I added my own ingredients into My Fitness Pal because I don’t trust the whole “Enter a recipe from the web” option. The stats were as follows: 970 calories, 78 g. of fat, 49 grams of protein, and 4 g. of carbs. My macros for those categories right now are at 77%, 21%, and 1%, respectively. Currently, it is7:51 and I’m not feeling hungry for dinner at all, but I do have some deviled eggs that I made earlier today in the fridge just in case.

I haven’t quite reached the point where I think I’ll vomit if I eat another egg, but I don’t think I’ll do the egg fast again tomorrow. Here’s why:

1.) I feel bad for Ace because I haven’t been a good wifey and have made him fend for himself at dinner for the past two nights. I enjoy cooking for us and it’s kind of hard to do when all I’m eating is eggs.

2.) I’m doing this thing…it’s called running…(and in case you haven’t been following my blog, you can read about it here) and I just felt so short on energy today as I ran and I think it’s because of this egg fast. I didn’t specifically count my calories yesterday but I have a suspicion that I didn’t get quite enough calories in and was dragging all day today.

3.) Honestly, if I continued this fast tomorrow I think I would reach the point where I might vomit if I see another egg. And since eggs are one of my main food groups on this WOE, I don’t want that to happen.I want eggs and I to still be friends after this. Not like me and Jell-O after I got my wisdom teeth taken out.

We will see how much I will have lost when I weigh myself tomorrow. This morning I weighed 219, and yesterday I weighed 221. Not uncommon for my weight to fluctuate that much, though. Curious to see what the scale will say tomorrow and find out if this egg fast is something I can use in the future if I hit a stall.
