Keto Week 2

I’m getting into the swing of things now. I’m not going to say this week was a breeze, but when it comes to food choices, it has been super easy.

This week I consistently started drinking or eating my Shakeology. Yes!  Eating!  That wasn’t a typo.  I will tell you all about it, don’t worry!  I also started PiYo and continued to run.  Well, ok, I will be honest, I slacked a little with the PiYo and running.

Day 8 I went out for a run and as I was running I could taste the sweet taste of ketones in my mouth. I was pretty excited about it because it means that I was burning those ketones for my energy instead of sugar!!! That is my ultimate goal, so this was great. Before bed I did my first day of PiYo. I can’t believe how sore I was the next day. Day 1 of Piyo is just going through each move so you can learn them before jumping into the fast paced workouts.

On day 9 I tried to go out for another run, but my stomach was really hurting, not like nausea, but actual pain. So I walked 4 miles instead of running 3 miles. The rest of the day I felt fine so I had no problem with PiYo day 2 before bed. The nice thing about PiYo is that it’s not an intense feeling workout (so far), so I can do it before bed and it’s kind of relaxing.

Oh my gosh on day 10 I went out for another run…. Yes, apparently I like to run…. It was the most amazing run! I felt amazing the whole time, I didn’t run super fast, but I never walking, not even on the hills. I was pretty proud of myself.

My food this week has been on point every day. No cheating! I honestly don’t even have the desire to cheat. My cravings are gone. It’s been over 13 days since my last binge and it feel great to have control over my food again. One night my kiddo wasn’t thrilled with my choice of dinner… it was a super yummy spaghetti squash chili… not sure why he turned his nose up to that! But I made him a super unhealthy, yet super yummy frozen party pizza. This is one of my favorite crap foods, I usually would make him one just so I could snag a couple pieces in addition to whatever I was eating for dinner. But not this night! I didn’t even touch it. He didn’t eat it all and I ended up throwing what he didn’t eat away. It didn’t even feel like a temptation.

I was trying to figure out a creative way to have my Shakeology this week and I just happened to have some cream cheese sitting on the counter and the thought popped in my head to add my shakeology to my keto cheesecake fluff.  #mindblown  This turned out great.  I will be posting the recipe soon.

Over the weekend we were at our old house that we are trying to get ready to put on the market. I did a ton of cleaning on Saturday and Sunday. With all he cleaning, cooking was the furthest thing from my mind, so we ate out just about every meal. My lunch choice on Saturday was Chick Fil A where I got my husband and I 30 grilled chicken nuggets and a side salad each. Perfect lunch! Dinner was my favorite… Chipotle. I just love Chipotle. I always get a salad without the dressing, with steak, cheese, sour cream, mild or medium salsa and I never forget the guacamole!

On Sunday we decided to go out again… for breakfast. I scanned some menu’s for some low carb options and we chose to go to The Village Inn. It’s weird because when I looked up one of their omelets on the menu they had a ton of carbs, but they had an option to build your own omelet, so that is what I chose. I added some bacon, spinach, swiss cheese and hollandaise sauce. It was so yummy. The waiter thought I was crazy when I said “no pancakes, no toast, and no hashbrowns” Yep, I’m crazy… keto crazy!

The one thing I love the most is that I can eat out and stay on plan, and it’s not even hard and I don’t feel deprived.

The end of week 2, I’m down 1.8 more pounds. Not a huge loss, but not a gain either!

I ate some great things this week. Here are just a few….

Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Diet Rootbeer “Float”

Chocolate Keto Cheesecake Fluff

Chipotle Steak Salad

Chik Fil A Salad

Village Inn Omelette


3 Day Refresh: Results

It’s results day!  First, before I tell you about my results on the scale, lets kind of recap my experience talk about my non scale results over the last 3 days.

Prior to doing the refresh, I wasn’t eating super horrible, but I was starting to head down that path again and it wasn’t good.  I was having stomach aches every day and I was just feeling blah and yucky overall.  I didn’t have any energy during the day, and mentally I wasn’t happy because of the poor food choices I was making.  I could visibly see the bloating and my pants felt pretty tight.

By the second day of my refresh my stomach was feeling better, I had more energy and I was feeling lighter.  I have no desire for sugary carbs and I’m looking forward to continuing to put healthy foods into my body.  The bloating is gone and my pants fit again.  I have done this refresh 2 other times, but this time I feel even better at the end than the other two times.  I feel different mentally.  I feel like I’m taking care of my body by making better choices.
Ok enough of that… lets get down to results.  Are you ready?

I lost 6.6 pounds in 3 days and 3.5 inches overall!  Isn’t that awesome!  I just love this program and how great it has made me feel that the amazing jump start it gave me to getting back on track.
