Thankfully, I rarely, if ever take more than three bites of a dessert, so my cheat was short-lived, and I was too caught up in conversation to consider it, anyway. Do I feel guilty about cheating? Nah...I did my best, and as it turned out, those few spoonfuls were the last thing I’d eat for the day, though the date lasted at least another six to seven hours. (Told you I was caught up in conversation!) I guess we’ll consider that intermittent fasting.


So, first day down, where did I really fail? Not planning ahead or eating frequently enough, though I definitely won on exercise and staying amply hydrated, since our date was alcohol-free (which means we really liked each other). On to the next!
