Hello Blogging world! I’m Alexis and this is my new and improved blog. Some of you are likely reading this after being directed here from my tumblr, 100ketodays.tumblr.com or my Instagram. If so, thanks for making the jump and continuing to read my journey over here! I love the simplicity of posting to tumbler, especially via instagram (100KetoDays), but I think its time for some change.
Whats the deal with 100 Keto days?!
100 Keto days days originated in March of 2014. At that time I was looking to lose weight for my wedding and desperate to try something new. I had stumbled across a social media movement focusing on creating 100 Happy Days in your life. Do something for 100 days, post about it and see what happens after 100 days. I decided from that day forward I’d be doing 100 days of the Ketogenic Diet to see what would happen in the 100 days. 100 Days later, I was down 36 pounds and 100% happier with my life.
Lets flash forward to today, Nearly a year and a half later…
Well, I’m going to be honest here. The struggle is real and I haven’t been as consistent as I should be. A LOT has happened since the first round of 100 days ended. I’ve taken graduate classes. I planned a wedding. I got married.
At my lowest weight in August of 2014, I had lost 50 pounds. I was so motivated and psyched to be doing well with Keto and NOTHING could stop me.
Until life got in the way.
I gained about 20 or so of those pounds back and I’ve been really struggling to stay focused.
So Whats next?
I thought revamping my blog and creating a version that would require me to post and reflect upon my choices for the week would be an improved way for me to document the ketogenic diet and its effects on my life.
I’m hoping that this blog acts as a multi-tool of sorts. A Diary, cookbook, motivator, and supporter for myself and others!
So Welcome! Thank you for reading and stay tuned for some Fatty posts!
