Monday: I did not fast for 24 hours today, like I had planned. James and I ended up having a later dinner on Sunday, and I wanted to eat dinner with James on Monday. So, I didn’t quite do 24 hours, though I did skip breakfast and lunch. I have been feeling pretty tired. I don’t know if it’s because I worked out on Thursday and was completely wiped out afterwards. I also had a pretty busy weekend. I guess it could be an electrolyte imbalance or I could be dehydrated. I’m trying to figure it out, because I hate feeling like I’m dragging.
Tuesday: I’ve felt less tired today. Still not feeling full of energy like I did on some days last week. The school administrators and PTSA keep on putting carb-filled food in front of my face. It’s really awesome that they want to encourage us teachers, but also, I can’t have any of the snacks that they are providing. I should just not even go look at the options. I should just stay in my classroom, away from temptation. But I go everytime and then I’m hangry because I WANT CARBS! 😦 I’m just really craving carbs right now. It’s good to practice saying “no” I guess I’ll just go eat my salad….
Thursday: I felt super sick this morning (#notpreggers) and I’m not sure what is wrong. I hope that it’s just that I’m dehydrated or maybe I’m not getting enough electrolytes. I also don’t have much of an appetite, which I know is normal on keto, but also I don’t want to put myself in too much of a caloric deficit. Made chicken cordon bleu keto style tonight for dinner. It was ok, but I wish I had made some béchamel sauce because it was just a little dry.
Friday: James and I are leaving tonight to getaway for our third-year anniversary! I didn’t have breakfast or lunch, but just got a couple of bulletproof coffees from Starbucks. For dinner, we had leftover chicken cordon bleu.
Saturday: We had an amazing breakfast today of scrambled eggs, bacon and fruit (blueberries for me). The scrambled eggs were sooooo good! I don’t know what I did differently, but they turned out amazingly! For lunch we had brats (mine was bunless) and for dinner we had huge ribeyes with brussel sprouts and I’m so bummed that I didn’t take a picture of it because it was beautiful and it was delicious!
Sunday: This week started off kind of poorly. I felt really sick and tired. By the end of the week, I felt pretty good, though and I’m proud of myself for sticking to keto and not cheating. I am really craving carbs and I’m not sure that is something that will ever go away. Still haven’t weighed myself (weigh-in day is 5/31!) but I feel like I can tell a difference in my body composition. Other people might not be able to, but I can feel things tightening up, which is super exciting!
