So today I started working out with my Trainor. I will officially start on August 1. Three times a week for 12 weeks. He claims I'll be at my goal weight 145 by then. Also I am going to continue keto but do something called Targeted Ketogenic Diet. It's were you eat carbs 25-50g before your workout and only on the days you work out. That way your only out of ketosis during your workout and you can build muscle and have energy for the intense workouts I will be doing. I did like 100 squats today and 50 bicep curls and my arms and legs are burning. I discovered back muscles that I didn't even k ow I had. I'm really excited to start this new journey in my life.

On Monday I am teaching my first therapy class at the retirement home solo. They director is going on vacation and is leaving me in charge of running the activities department (basically what I'm going to school for.) so that's exciting.

My friend is traveling from Texas to Florida to spend a few days with me Tuesday through Friday. Although I still have my normal activities planned I plan on having fun with her and having a mini vacation.

It's not always easy but it is worth it.

Fat Fast

I started a fat fast on Friday and finsihed it on Sunday. The reason I did the fat fast was to jump back into ketosis because I got kicked out and because it can sometimes get you out of a weigtht platue. Last time I did a at fast I lost 4 lb but I didn't drop the weight until 3 days after the fast. So I am sitting at 176lb now. I've been around 178-176 for months now so I'm ready to drop.

I went to the personal trainer and he did not support the ketogenic diet. He basically told me a bunch of lies and told me that I wasn't going to lose if I didn't listen to him. He told me ketosis is dangerous, which it's not. We are born into ketosis amd breast milk has ketones in it so when we were babies we were bascailly on a ketogenic diet. Saying its dangerous is absurd. He told me I needed to be eating at least 2000 calories a day and eat 75-100g of carbs a day. I barely eat 20g a day so that would not make sense. It would send my body into shock pretty much. I can't process sugar and carbs turn into sugar. So, I decided to try a new trainer and I start that on Wednesday for a free consulation. I will let you know how it all goes. I'm looking foward to it.

I've been crazy busy lately with school, work, and volunteering. I get home at 9-10pm and I'm just exhausted. I usually just head to bed but Kevin usually bothers me, wanting to snuggle. I feel bad that he is here all by himself all day long. Hopefully when my spring classes start I will be home more.

New Goals

So originally I was going to do the Ketogenic diet for only 9 months, however I have decided to finish it for a whole year. So my official end date is February 8, 2017. I do plan to have a pizza date at Cici's pizza on August 8, 2016 to celebrate (cheating) being on the diet for 7 months of being healthier. Anybody is welcome to join!

So as of today I am 179lb. You are probably thinking well that not a lot from the last blog you read, and you would be right. I had a week of not being in ketosis because I was on antibiotics from pneumonia in June. The antibiotics I took for 10 days kicked me out of ketosis and therefor I decided if I'm out of ketosis minds well eat normal, so I did, and I gained 5lbs. So this morning I weighed myself and I weight is to 179lb and I'm happy because when I was on the antibiotics I got back up to 183lb.

I am starting on Wednesday with a personal trainer. He will hopefully help me at the gym and teach me what and how to work out the right way and help me loose more weight. I'm excited for that because I want to become more toned and have a flatter stomach.

I'm so busy busy. This week if going to be crazy I just know it. Today I have tutoring for writing, and let me just say getting tutors at the college is the best thing I have ever did. If I go to tutoring I am sure enough able to get an A in the class. Anyway, I have a speech I am giving about ketogenic diet and cancer. I'm really excited about it and hope it turns out the way I hope it will. I have volunteering at the retirement home, which I probably didn't tell you about, but it's for my recreational therapy program. I also have classes monday, tuesday, wednesday, and thursday, which are all going really well. I also signed up for classes for Fall 2016. I have introducation to humanties, Anatomy and physiology 1, and General pyschology. I am really excited. I have two more semester and then I'm done!! (with my AA that it.)

So my future plans are: Finish my AA at EFSC, then Continue to work at Kindred and go to FIU online Recreational therapy program, and after I graduate I want to move to St. Petersburg. It really is nice over there and they have a variety of hospitals to work at. I really want to work at a childrens hospital, maybe Nemors. Anyways, I'm really excited for my future and what is to come.

I'm still single, and I believe that shouldn't be a status, its a word that describes a person who is strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on others. I plan on staying single till that special someone comes along and sweeps me off my feet. But for now I am prety content in my life and where I am going.
