New Measurements (Keto Chow Week 3-ish)

Hey there! I know it has been a while but my last week results were not worth posting in my opinion. My weight has been yo-yoing especially on weekends since I don’t have much to keep my mind off of those delicious carbs. Not only that, but my girlfriend and I have very bad habits of eating out on weekends. I know that it is possible to get low-carb food on most menus but the temptation is greater… especially when you’re at your favorite sandwich shop or you’re eyeballing what’s on everyone elses plate! Also, I’ve got it in my head that once I cheat and go over my carb limit for the day, I might as well go all out.

That said, my results are not nearly as great as they could be but I’m still motivated to push forward. I knew this wasn’t going to be easy. I did make better progress this last week. I’ve also gotten in the habit of riding my bike 4 miles on the metro park bike trail near my house everyday. I even experienced my first mountain bike trail! It was intense and exciting however, it also taught me that I need to do a lot more training before I hit that trail. I feel that this new habit/hobby is responsible for some of the inches lost in certain parts of my body. I’ll get to that in minute.

One last thing I’d like to share, I currently have bronchitis. Besides not being able to breathe, it has its pros. For one, I have had a loss of appetite since Saturday which really helped me to not cheat. I have lost some weight resulting in this and have reached my lowest weight since September when I first started this blog. That’s pretty exciting!

Anyways, Here are my current results in measurements and weight:

 

Weight Loss since last Measurement: 5.1 lbs (2.5 weeks ago)
Weight Loss from heaviest Weight: 15.3 lbs     (Feb. 9th 2016)

Inches Lost since last Measurement: 9.25 in
Inches Lost from first Measurements: 12.75 inches

I just compared my first ever measurements back in September 2015 on this blog where I weighed 188.4 lbs to my current body measurements and I am pretty close measurement wise. My body fat percentage is the only real difference and that’s probably due to human error since I kinda don’t know what I’m doing when it comes to that. I’m pleased so far with my weight losses. I definitely need to start going back to the gym and work on my upper body strength and I’m going to keep up with my bike routine once I can breathe again. I haven’t decided yet if I want to post pictures since they are probably the same as the ones I posted in September last year but if I change my mind you will probably see them within the next few days if not tonight. It’s kind of a pain in the ass for me to take before and after pictures since I need someone else to take them which is still a daunting task for me since it’s my girlfriend that takes them. Also it takes me a couple of hours to get it all together and post. Not complaining… just explaining.. 🙂

Keto Chow update… I’m still making my shakes and average about one a day. Two if I’m lucky. I’m still struggling finishing them. Not giving up! My goal as of today is to get at least two down and remember to take my multi-vitamin and fish oil pills daily. (This is probably why I’m sick since my body is probably not getting everything it needs) I’ll be officially starting this goal once I’m feeling better and can go back to work! That’s all for now!

See you later!

 

DAY 1-2 OF KETO!

I planned on starting keto chow this weekend, however I received all my ingredients and was too excited not too start. Not only that, but I’ve been spending 100’s of dollars these last two weeks eating as much carbs as I could since carbs are now a thing of the past!

DAY ONE–  starting weight: 198 lbs
I struggled to make a days worth the night before day one. I forgot the recipe was a days worth and I accidentally made it all in 1 blender bottle instead of three resulting in a half mixed mess. One hour later… everything is mixed.. the taste was a bit salty and the texture was slightly slimy. The day went by like nothing changed. (Probably because I’m use to having a meal replacement shake for breakfast and lunch on weekdays). For dinner I decided to skip the shake and go for (mostly) keto friendly dinner at smokey bones.  I did have mashed potatoes and they were delicious! I also had grilled chicken breast, pulled pork and broccoli in case anyone is wondering about everything I consumed. I figured might as well cheat the first day than get a week straight without carbs and give in. I felt kind of tired all day without my daily coffee which I willingly decided to give up.

DAY TWO– current weight: 196.2 lbs
Last night’s preparing of the shakes went a lot smoother. They even tasted better.. still a bit salty probably because I’m not a huge fan of salt. Today I managed to drink all three shakes and because I was hangry with the world, I decided to have some scrambled eggs with cheese. After the eggs, I was at peace with the world and happily watched my greys anatomy until bedtime.
