Vacation is over

Vacation is over and it was too short. Seattle was beautiful. Now back to school. I'm kinda glad to get back to my routine though and hopefully going to be going to the gym 4 times a week now instead of 3. So it's close to two months on this diet and I am happy to report that I have met my end of the month weight! I have lost a total of 19lbs since February 8, 2016 and I am quite proud of that.

It's been so long and I am very sorry about that. Just been busy. I have lost 4 pounds since last updated. That is 17lb in two months! In this rate I'll be to my goal in no time. I got a glucometer to check my ketones and fasting glucose. Fasting glucose under 100 is good. And ketones between 1.5-3 is considered good for fat burning, 2 is considered the sweet spot. Mine this morning was 1.8 It's just an easier way to make sure I am in ketosis. Also I decided that I am going to go to the gym 4 days a week instead of 3 to see if that makes a difference.

Long time

sorry it's been so long since I updated. I'm taking a trip to Seattle this weekend. I'm really excited! I hadn't checked the scale since Monday but yesterday I weighed myself at work yesterday and with my sweatshirt an shoes I weighed 188lb which is my normal weight. I weighed myself this morning and I'm 185lb!! Well off I go to Washington!!

Great News!

Awesome News!! I got my insulin results back. I got checked in December my insulin was 164. After being on keto for a month I am now at 41! It's a huge jump. I'm still not in the normal range (2-19) but I will soon be there. No weight loss or gain yet either, but happy about these numbers.

Starbucks on Keto

This morning I had a grande ice coffee with sugar free Carmel syrup with heavy whipping cream. I'm happy I can have some kind of normalcy on this diet. I feel like I'm doing a lot for nothing now. I'm not losing or gaining. I'm working hard at the gym. I just have to wait till my body adjusts I guess. Also I got aspartame free gym. That's nice cuz on keto you get stinky breath. Some people say it smells like alcoholic breath. I would have to carry tiny mouth wash things in my purse and car. But now I have gum it's nice.

brain and nervous system and muslces
Ketone Adaption!
Muscle is spared/Fat is burned

Soory about lack of updates. There's nothing really exciting happening anyway to report. I've been feeling sad today. My good friend Amelia Moore has passed and has gone to be with Jesus. I went to the gym to get out and not be alone but it hasn't helped. I just feel like sleeping. Please pray for her family as they are dealing with this now.

Love you Amelia.

Leg Day

So I'm seeing a dietitian next Thursday, just so that I can clarify if I am eating the right about of protein, fat, and carbs (under 25 now). I woke up ache this morning, so I'm gonna eat a good breakfast before heading to the gym for leg day! This weekend I went to my parents for dinner. We had parmasian chicken (mayo and Parmesan cheese). It was nice to not have to cook for once. Also if I get lazy and don't want to cook I just go out and get a bun less burger or salad.
