Again, the hardest part is waiting for breakfast. I’ve given myself lots of things to do to pass the time until I can dive into a cuppa and food. Cleaning seems to be a great way to keep from biting the heads off of my housemates during that critical time between 8-10 a.m. 

My knee isn’t crackling any more and my back feels a little looser. I’m not sticking to a low-carb or low-inflammation food regimen, but I can see where the time limits would create less caloric intake. If I’m eating breakfast at 10, I’m not hungry when I fix lunch for the fam at noon. That means I’m eating alone in the early afternoon.

For sure I’m thinking ahead to normal life and how this schedule is going to work. Unless I get a good handle on it now, I don’t see this lasting once 75% of the humans leave before I’ve had breakfast each day. I do most of my productive, physical work between 5-7 a.m. during normal life.

Maybe I need to sacrifice eating dinner with the fam and move the 8-hour window to 7 a.m.-3 p.m.?
