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.

Take a Look at these rolls! (New Before Pictures)

I’ve been spending the last three hours trying to figure out how to combine two pictures together and I finally figured it out after much frustration. I’m about to show you my current before pictures (at 200lbs) versus my previous before pictures (at 188lbs) from when I attempted to complete the p90x3 Challenge a couple months ago (September, I believe..).In my Opinion, they kind of look the same besides having more defined rolls on my back.. and maybe a little rounder in the muffin area.. (Yes, I call my stomach a muffin)

It’s hard for me to compare them since the previous lighting was really shitty and I’m in a different place wearing different clothes. My current pictures are the ones that are better quality (all on the left)! I will try to keep my next comparison pictures as similar as possible.

Don’t mind the major farmer tan I got going on in my previous pictures… I use to seal asphalt in +90 degree weather all day. That job definitely made me sweat my ass off…. you’d think I’d be in better shape. :p

Workout Schedule (rough draft.. Still tinkering with it a bit) along with supplements/diet I am taking will be in my next post this weekend.. See you then!

My New Weight Loss Goals

If you read my previous post/update, you may have noticed that I have gained some weight since the last time I posted measurements. With that said, it’s safe to assume that I have not followed through with p90x3 once again. I’ve come to the conclusion that I am not mentally/physically prepared to be able to complete this challenge. I’ve basically been setting myself up for failure by biting off more than I can handle. Mostly because I don’t want it enough to go through the discomfort and sacrifices. At least that’s how I feel at the moment.

Instead I have decided to come up with my own workout routine that I will be posting later to get in the habit of working out and eating healthier for a better lifestyle. My biggest goal when hitting the gym will be to work harder than the day before whether I’m dealing with cardio or strength training…. One step at a time, right?!

 

(My current weight is 200.4lbs and my goal is to be 150lbs. My weight goal I am focusing on right now is 180lbs to break it down so it feels more manageable. My goals below are based off of my old measurements from around 2011/2012 that I found in an old workout journal. These goals are more of a starting point than my ideal weight and measurements. I find it hard to make up ideal measurements because I feel like the sizes I’d pick would make me look like a deformed Barbie or something…)

Here are my current measurements along with  my (long term) goals:

Weight-200.4lbs                                                                                 150lbs

Body Fat%-36.2%                                                                               29%

Neck-14.5                                                                                           14in

Chest-  42.5                                                                                        38in

Navel-43 (44.5in at largest point)                                                    36in

Hips- 46in @ middle of butt/ 42.5in @ waist line                           39in/36in

Biceps- 13in Flexed 13.5 ish         (14in@largest)                                  11in/11.5in

Forearms-10in                                                                                          –in

Thighs-27.5in at largest                                                                    23in

Calves- 16.5in(R) 16in (L)                                                                  14.5in

It says in this workout journal that I have pictures on my old computer. If I ever find them I will be sure to post them so we can compare everything. At these measurements, I worked out inconsistently maybe 2x week (mostly elliptical), took stackers daily, and worked +12 hours 7 days a week at a fast paced restaurant that was short staffed. Hopefully when I reach 150lbs I will look even better since I will be weight lifting and taking supplements!

Speaking of supplements, The two meal replacement drinks (Lean shake I believe) I talked about in my last post were decent. Well the natural chocolate one was pretty tasty. I wasn’t a fan of the natural vanilla. Either way, I’m not planning on buying this brand for meal replacement drinks since they’re a little pricey for me.

I plan on posting current pictures, supplements I will be taking, and my workout plan sometime before Monday. Hopefully I didn’t ramble too much as I am running on little sleep and it’s my bed time! Until next time…

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.
