Well I’m not going to lie and say I didn’t expect to not lose much if any this week. In fact +.2 was actually relieving to me. We traveled this weekend which isn’t an excuse but for us weak willed individuals the first few days of Keto, this was the perfect storm.
I ate crap. For 2 days straight. Ittttt was awful. I felt like crap, I looked like crap. My water dropped. It wasn’t pretty and I’m not proud.
But I’m human.
Next weeks goals:
- Strict Keto 7 Days
- Buy NOTHING from the Cafe.
- 4 Nalgenes of water a day (128 oz)
- 3 pounds down.
I’m not trying to kill myself here. I know that strict keto the first week is the hardest. It’s literally the first words that come out of my mouth when someone says they want to try keto, “The first week is literally the hardest thing ever, but after that you’re golden!”. I know its hard. So I’m not pushing myself to get any workouts in if I’m not feeling it. I’m not really restricting my calories (nothing TOO crazy).
My goals are clear here. Strict keto 7 days. For me that just means under 20 TOTAL carbs. When I’m getting back into keto, nothing else matters to me– not protein or fat. Get the carbs down– get me into Ketosis and the rest I’ll adjust later.
Probably the biggest thing I struggle with is eating at work. We have a cafe within feet of my desk that is continually stocked with junk food and is literally open 24/7. This goal is to buy no food item from the Cafe. I do buy drinks there as soon as I get in, but I’ll be limiting that as well.
Drinking 128 oz of water is a necessity for me. My skin is awful and I’ve been feeling crappy over all. Drinking water is critical to this first week.
Finally, the 3 pounds is a high goal for the week, but with water weight, I feel like this is obtainable!
