Diet starts at sunrise and I’m ready!

Surprise! I’m back again and it’s before waiting six months!

I never thought I’d say this but…. I completed my first 5k on Saturday!! My time wasn’t anywhere near impressive but I didn’t finish last which was my only goal. I was 83 out of 89. I have another one in two weeks so I’m pretty excited to beat my first time or place. For anyone who has always dreamed of doing a 5k but want to wait until they are in better shape, I recommend to just sign up. If anything it will only further motivate you to continue on your weight loss journey and it’s fun. Even if you can’t run for more than 30 seconds they make 5k’s where you can either walk or run so there is no excuse not to meet your goals.

I forgot to mention in my last post that I made a “bet” that I will lose 4% of weight in 4 weeks for money on Dietbet. Someone mentioned that they were going to do this a couple weeks ago and I finally checked it out and it appears to be legit. What better way to motivate yourself then money??? I could probably lose 10 lbs in a week and a half so I’m feeling extremely confident! This is another reason I am starting my diet tomorrow. I took my measurements and before pictures once again. They are pretty similar to my last pictures I posted so I decided I’m not going to share them until my next update for comparison. I will, however, post my current measurements because I am currently at my fluffiest.

Weight: 201 lbs (4% of my weight would bring me to 193lbs)

Biceps: 14.25”

Chest: 43”

Stomach: 45.5”

Waist: 43.5”

Hips: 47”

Thighs: 27.25”

Calves: 17”

I made Keto Chow shakes to take to work tomorrow. I have four more shakes and then I can start drinking the newer formula that Chris Bair invented. It uses Acacia Gum fiber instead of the Psyllium Husk powder which makes it really smooth. I have a feeling I will like this formula much better making it easier for me to be successful with my diet.

My classes resume Tuesday  so I will be updating in a week or two depending on how I adjust to my new schedule. See you later!
