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!
