Keto- Week 2

Posted by on Feb 29, 2016 in Keto Diet, Weight Loss | 0 comments

I had an ok week last week. Not great, just ok. I met my goal of working out 4 times a week. On Wednesday, I did a Tabata workout I found on YouTube. On Friday, I went to the Y and did a Body Pump class. On Saturday, I went to the Y and did 25 minutes on a new kind of elliptical machine and then did several of the weight machines. Yesterday, I did a Pilates workout I found on YouTube, which was really hard. So, I slacked off at the beginning of the week but made up for it at the end.

As for my diet, I did pretty well the first few days. I even made a low carb cheesecake (recipe here) to help sate my sweet tooth. But on Friday, I took the kids to Yogurtland and couldn’t resist indulging myself. Then, on Saturday night, the oldest kid made brownies, and I once again succumbed to temptation. I also at a slice of pizza, crust and all, last night. Ugh. I get so mad at myself afterward even though it’s very enjoyable at the time.

I didn’t really stick to tracking my food. I did on the first day, and it was tough to stay within the recommended calories and carbs. I just really, really hate tracking food. It is so tedious to me. It does help me to see how many carbs I can eat, though.

Despite my shortcomings, I did manage to lose a couple of pounds (yay!). Usually my first week back on keto gets me a loss of around 4-5 pounds, but since I had a couple of cheats, the low number isn’t all that surprising. And I pretty consistently lost half an inch on my measurements. Woohoo! Hopefully this week will be better!

I’m Baaaack! Ketogenic Diet: Week 1

Posted by on Feb 22, 2016 in Blog, Keto Diet, Weight Loss | 1 comment

Hello! So sorry that I fell off the face of the Earth for, what, a year? I’ve been keeping busy during the past year. Three of my step-kids moved in with us full time, and we’ve all been adjusting. We’ve still been very active with our local SCA group and are always working on projects that are SCA related. We’ve also been exercising more and have changed our diet. Since around February of last year, we have been cutting back on carbs by doing the ketogenic diet.
