Back again.. what is this, round 3?

Last couple months have been pretty crazy for me. I am about to finish my first semester of college. Now that I have a good idea of what to expect for being in school and working full-time, I feel like I am now more capable of reaching my goals of blogging and losing weight. I am currently on day three of my keto challenge, as you might have guessed,  I have not been faithful to my diet during my long break from here!

Here is a quick recap:

August 1, 2016– started keto diet weight 190lbs. With all the junk food that i have been eating since my last keto attempt, I’m surprised that I didnt exceed my heaviest weight of 200 lbs!

I’ve been feeling bloated, sluggish, and weighed-down the last couple weeks and by the end of the day I started to feel better. I did get hit with the “keto flu” the first couple days but I drank a lot of water (with Naan) and took pain killer and it helped while my body tries to adapt.

I ate a couple carbs my first day but I would be surprised if I went over my carb limit by more than 5 grams. I ate a key lime keto chow shake and made scrambled eggs with veggies.

August  2, 2016– I weighed in at 188 lbs! Minus 2 pounds within 24 hours, not bad! I felt so much better on the 2nd day. It felt like my body was running efficiently, specifically my stomach. No stomach aches, bloating, or bubble gut, as my girlfriend would say.

I almost gave in and ate carbs but after a motivation, yet hilarious, talk from my girlfriend, I was able to make it to day three!  I found that I’m more likely to ditch the diet if I don’t eat during work. By the time I get home at 5pm, I turn into the Hulk and eat everything that is in reach.

August 3, 2016– Today is not over yet, but I have been so good today as far as not eating carbs go. I have ate keto chow pancakes (recipe on chris bars website) that I made at 2am last night with peanut butter chocolate  keto chow and I had some turkey and cheese.  I weighed 187.6 lbs.

Last night I bought some tofu shirataki noodles for the first time and I plan on trying them out tonight. (They are low calories and carbs which is good for ketogenic diets.)

Come back Friday evening to see my review!

Keto Chow… What is it?

Hey guys! Again, it’s been a while…

So I have recently become very interested in ketogentic dieting… A guy I work for has been doing Keto Chow (a keto diet) for the last 2 months and has already lost around 30 pounds and he doesn’t even work out! Now I know a lot of people hearing about a great amount of weight loss in a small time frame will be skeptic or even say it’s not healthy. Well, I haven’t seen any bad reviews of people on this specific diet and quite frankly, I kind of don’t care.

Now most of you are probably wondering what is this miracle weight loss diet?

It’s a low-carb high fat diet that is something called a soylent. From my understanding a soylent is a liquid diet that contains every mineral and vitamin and whatever else your body needs in order to run efficiently. You can do one, two, or three shakes a day. If you decide to only do one or two shakes, then your diet can be  mostly of meats and cheese. Anything as long as you stay under 5% carbs for the day.

I plan on doing the shakes 3x a day for maximum weight loss as well as I believe this will help me save money since that’s where most of my money goes.

I’ve got all of my information from reading the Chris Bairs (the  creator)  blog: www.thebairs.net

Chris sells different shakes of Keto Chow on his site as well as the ingredients to make it yourself if you want. I’ve decided to go route B and make it myself to save money.

I’ve already ordered everything I need online and should be getting it all by the 16th of this month. If everything goes as planned, I should be starting this diet by the 18th.

I’ve decided to start on a Friday afternoon because there is a possibility of side effects during the first week and I’d really like to experience them at home need be.

Lets just say most people’s bodies aren’t use to how much fiber is in these drinks…

Well that’s all I’m going to say about this for now. If anyone has any questions or are interested in possibly starting Keto Chow or have been there done that, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

As far as a recap from my last post, I am currently 195 lbs average. I was working out but stopped last week when I decided to start this diet. I am currently eating whatever I want since I will not be eating solids most likely for the next couple months or more. I am planning on resuming exercising once my body has adjusted to no carbs since that is what fuels most people’s bodies. Keto diets basically make it so that you are burning fat instead of glucose… Something like that… again, for more information check out Chris’s page.

 

 

 

The Plan.

Alright, so about two months or so I ordered P90X3 when I was laying in bed watching the informercial. They made it look really fun so I got all pumped up resulting in buying over $200 worth of shit off their site.  I ended up doing it for like 3 days in a row and then said fuck it.

This is harder than I thought it’d be.

I wanted results and I wanted them fast. I didn’t see any so I gave up.

Then I came up with the idea of making a new blog.

I mean, the first time I tried doing the original p90x I made one and that helped me last a week.

A week of exercise is better than 3 days, right? Haha

Hopefully this time I’ll make it the 90 days which I’m pretty determined…. Well I feel like I’ll be determined once I get the energy and motivation to start.

All this exercise talk is making me want a cigarette and some Mcdonalds.

So yeah, the plan is to complete 90 days of P90X3 and blog my journey doing it. I know one of the most important things to do to get the most out of this program is to eat healthy… but let’s face it…

I love me some fast food.

So that’s step 2 of the plan. Maybe once I start feeling a little better or start seeing some results, I’ll slow down on the junk food and let the healthy shit creep into my life. I’m definitely not going on any type of diet… I’d rather be fat! I like to take life one day at a time instead of planing every single second.

Step 3 or 1.5 is to start jogging/running daily. We will see if it comes before or after eating healthy.

I want to do a marathon next year and right now I have trouble running up the stairs. I’m at my heaviest weight right now and I find my self using my inhaler more than ever before. Actually I stopped weighing myself a couple months ago because it’s too depressing to see that stupid blinking number raise every time I step on it, even though I feel pretty confident that I lost weight! I work outside sealing asphalt, sweating my ass off all day everyday. It just doesn’t make sense to me, I should be dropping weight like crazy.

So now I’ve come to the realization that when you’re fat/not in shape, you have to work really hard and be really focused in order to get to a heathy weight. Sometimes I think about gaining as much weight as I possibly can so that when I lose all of it, it will be a bigger accomplishment but I’m pretty sure this is just my brain trying to make me feel better about my body becoming a baby elephant.

I want to become a personal trainer once I lose all the extra fat and gain muscles and get my eating habits in order as well as feeling more confident about myself. I mean, who wants some skinny bitch that’s never been fat a day in her life pushing them through a exhausting work out telling them to put down the snickers when you can have someone that’s been there, done that and can relate to how you are feeling. I want to help people feel beautiful about themselves and motivate them to go further than they ever thought was possible. I want to help people be in the best shape of their lives and not have so many health issues or pain. I want to make a positive impact in other people’s lives.

Maybe one day you’ll be reading a post about how I made it….

Haha… I’m going to be the next jillian michaels.

Just Maybe….

This blog is going to be about me and my life. Well… most likely me procrastinating life. In fact, this is my second blog. (I made a couple post on my last one a couple years ago and then said fuck it) Now my plans for this one are much bigger however I did name it readytoprocrastinate. This is how I feel most of the time… ready to procrastinate. I guess you can say I’m lazy, but only under certain circumstance in my opinion. I hoping by naming my blog this that it will take away the pressure of failure or that fuck it feeling if I happen to not post anything for a couple weeks since it’s basically expected… right? Haha… After all, It took me 3 days to get enough motivation to write the this post.

Starting out, my biggest goals are to get in shape so this blog will most likely start out being a weight loss blog. Maybe it will evolve into something else… maybe.

My story. Maybe you will relate to what I will be going through or want advice to what will happen once you start your journey or simply how to start. Maybe you’re just bored out of your mind surfing the web procrastinating something that you will probably hurry up and start and finish when you hear that car pull up in the driveway or your boss walking down the hall.

Maybe no one will read any of my posts.

Either way I’m here to blog because I need something to motivate me otherwise I’m just going to end up watching t.v. and continuing to gain weight and do nothing.

I’m the best at procrastinating.

This blog is going to help me become the worst.

Maybe.
