It's been a while since I updated my blog, but who the heck wants to hear me talking about keto week in and week out? Lol.
Well here I am, almost 2 months in, and still going strong! I'm feeling pretty comfortable with this way of eating, but yes, I am still tracking most of my meals. I am starting to get a feel for eyeballing my meals, but the time it takes to measure and input into myfitnesspal really isn't that big of a deal to me. I typically do it in the morning with my coffee as I have already planned out my lunch, and on track days, my dinner too.
The best part is, I am still seeing slow gradual weight loss. I am down a total of 15lbs to date, and the best part.... my clothes are once again starting to fit again! Woooo! I am feeling much better about myself, and finding the confidence to wear shirts that maybe fit a little tighter.
I'm still trying to workout, at least in my garage. I am continuing with my crossfit style workouts and strength training 2-3 days a week. I did give up running, not forever, but just until I am fully fat adapted. I was becoming way too frustrated with not being able to run well, and it just wasn't worth it. I am confident that when I decide to return to running (likely in the new year) my body will be ready to be fueled by fat, and it will be enjoyable again.
I am playing around still with intermittent fasting, and just purchased the book The Complete Guide to Fasting - by Jason Fung, MD and Jimmy Moore. I have found fasting quite easy lately, I am not hungry more often I am hungry. I will share my take on fasting when I have read the book and have more information at my fingertips. (This will be after Christmas, as I will be wrapping the book up for myself as a gift from my animals. LOL)
My newest Keto adventure is exogenous ketones. I recently made a purchase from Perfect Keto, and I am super excited to see how these exogenous ketones enhance my keto journey - so be prepared for a blog post on that too!
Anyways, just a quick update for now. Hope to chat in a week or two - providing Christmas doesn't get too crazy!
