Monday: I’m fasting today. I feel pretty good! I haven’t experiences very many hunger pains and I have been keeping my mind busy, planning fun activities for the summer. James and I went shopping tonight after he ate dinner and I started to feel a little bit weak towards the end of the trip, so I broke my fast at 24 hours. See, self? I don’t NEED food to make it through a Monday…
Tuesday: Did Intermittent Fasting. Had a bigger lunch (Tuna Salad-YUM!) and felt great!
Wednesday: Typical hump day. I felt a little bit tired but not nearly as tired as I felt pre-keto diet. My mood has been great all week. I have been more confident, and more upbeat than I have been in a while.
Thursday: Did a P90X workout today – chest and back. I’m not going to stick to the DVD’s strictly, yet, at least until I get out of school for the summer, but it’s good to start doing some sort of workout. Right after I finished, I crashed for about 30 minutes on the couch. Went to Chuys for dinner and ordered steak and chicken fajitas without any tortillas.
SO PROUD THAT I HAVE NOT CHEATED!
Friday: The PTSA at school put on a little snack bar for teachers, which was really sweet of them. I walked by platters of muffins, candy, cookies, chips, and popcorn and grabbed a LaCroix sparkling water, and went back to my room and ate my lunch… *high-five, self!* James and I went to Outback tonight and I ordered steak, with shrimp and added on a lobster tail. It came with a side salad and some broccoli. James didn’t believe I could eat it all, but my lunch was on the smaller side today, so I had no problem polishing it all off! I did feel really wiped out today…possibly due to my workout yesterday? End of the week?
Saturday: Such a fun day! So nice out! Planned my meals for the week, took Ro for a 2-mile walk, cleaned the house, picked up a couple groceries, went for a swim, and had people over for dinner!
Overall, after this second week back on the keto diet, I am feeling pretty good! I did really struggle on Friday because I wasn’t able to have any of the things the PTSA brought for teachers, but I am super proud to say that I have not once cheated. I feel like I have so much energy and I can be so productive because I don’t feel like I’m dragging physically or mentally. I also feel like I’ve been in a better state-of-mind and have had a more positive, happy mood (to which my husband will attest).
No weigh May has been great so far! It’s nice to not have to stress about the scale and just be able to focus on how I am feeling. I took some progress pics, and they look the same to me, but I know I feel different, and I feel like I have lost some weight. But even if I haven’t, I know that my body is changing, and that I’m feeling better, and that is what matters most.
Excited to see how I do in week 3! Going to try to add in more workouts and stay focused on my goals.
