7-23-12 Day 74 of Keto…awkwaaaaard.
MFP Doesn’t have an exercise added for sex. So I choose “general aerobics” because, fuck not getting credit for that. Sometimes it’s a lot of work. It’s awkward when someone unknowingly comments with “Good burn” on my sexercise.
No, burning isn’t good then. Not good at all.
——————————————————————————————————-
Additionally and less awkwardly I have been reading a lot more about how much macros matter and what not. I think I am going to rearrange some things and try to get more protein. Going through even my higher protein days, I don’t think I’m getting enough. My LBM is about 123 lbs, so 55 kg. Depending on who you ask, I should be getting about 20-30g more protein every day. I’ve been concerned with getting enough fat, but I’m going to worry less about that, keep my carbs low and up my protein a bit. A lot of what I’m going to base this on is found here: Reddit talks macros and in the links provided there. A lot of people who have major success have also talked about not worrying about macros and just keeping carbs low and protein moderate. So we shall see.
I did lose 1.2 more pounds over the weekend. Down to a new all time low with 29.2 pounds lost in total. Can’t wait for that to tick over 30….

7-16-12 Day 67 of Keto

So far all of my calories are from booze. No regrets. 

I am offically 1.5 pounds less than I was when I started my vacation/cheat week. I think cutting cheese out worked well for me.

WHICH IS A FUCKING SHAME BECAUSE IT’S DELICIOUS.

7-9-12 Day 62 of Keto. Well kind of…

I’ve been off work since the afternoon of June 29th. 

I’ve also been off Keto for about as long. It started with a planned weekend of cheating, we went up north a few cities to get Hardee’s since there isn’t one near us and I haven’t had it since we moved from Arizona. It was totally worth the drive. 

The cheating escalated when we were treated to several non keto friendly meals over the Fourth holiday. So, It was fine, I gained some water weight, did not gain any size. But after about six days of eating carbs (moderately really, mostly sandwiches) I started feeling like complete and utter shit. I’ve had crazy bad heart burn, my stomach hurts all the time, and my joints are aching like fuck. If I had any keto friendly food around I would have gone back already. I will start strict keto again tomorrow, but I think I’m going to cut back on cheese. Nothing is ever going to convince me to go back to eating carbs all the time. A sandwich here and there is great, but fuck I feel like shit.

6-18-12 Day 41 of Keto

A little high on carbs, I ate like half a pound of green beans. They were seriously the best green beans I have ever had. I don’t even like green beans. 

I wish I had more. They only had green beans, mashed potato and dirty rice at the restaurant we went to for dinner (cajun cooking ftw?) so I got double green beans. I was thoroughly disappointed until I tried one. Then I proceeded to shove them all in my face. ALL OF THEM. Even my BF’s.

6-11-12 Day 34 of Keto

Breakfast and lunch were pretty much the same, some Hillshire Farms summer sausage and cracker cuts cheese slices. 

Dinner: Half of a medium rare 16oz Ribeye from cowboys, steamed broccoli with butter. Yum yum. 

Yesterday I had the same for snacks or lunch or whatever and a leg/thigh from a rotisserie chicken and steamed broccoli with a bunch of butter on it. Also ate all of the chicken skin. Which is a lifelong dream. It was amazing. Saw Avengers and Prometheus over the weekend, both were really good.

6-9-12 Day 32 of Keto

Down to 244.2 - -21.8 overall! Not too bad given my two cheatish days and what I think was the IF stalling me out, I’m losing solidly again. Pretty pleased with my progress so far. 

Breakfast: A few slices of sopresata and some colby jack cracker cuts.

Lunch: Beef and broccoli, about a cup and a half, mostly broccoli. Suprisingly carb friendly given that I don’t eat anything with carbs other than veggies usually. 

Dinner: Three colby jack cracker cuts, two slices Boar’s head muenster cheese, two slices of Publix bottom round roast beef, a few slices of Hillshire Farms Summer Sausage and a tablespoon of the Kosher butter I picked up. I HEART THIS BUTTER ON EVERYTHING.

ALMOST down a fifth notch my belt!

Snacky wack: Sopresata and muenster. Almost out of muenster. Sad times. 

Lunch: Steamed broccoli with butter and a bit of salt. 

And butter. I ate butter with a fork. It was worth it. 

Dinner: Sopresata and the rest of my muenster.

6-7-12 Day 31 of Keto

I have given up IF. Reading some information that makes it seem like not such a good idea for (some) women, and I was definitely losing more consistently before I tried it. So snacks are back in during the day. 

Sopresata on nom nom. And muenster. <3 Boar’s Head. <3 them hard.

6-6-12 Day 30 of Keto

Snack: Some Boar’s Head Sopressata slices with some Boar’s Head muenster cheese. 

Lunch, which will probably roll into dinner: TEN, count them TEN hot wings. And some celery. Love 50 cent wing days. 

Dinner: McDonald’s grilled chicken unwhich - lettuce, chicken, cheese, bacon and most of the mayo scraped off. No bun of course.

5-30-12 Day 24 of Keto

Breakfast: Half a two egg omelet with bacon and cheese. 

Lunch: My first official cheat but I’m still under my carb count for the day, though I need to pack in some fat. Had lamb schwarma for lunch, ate about a third of the pita bread, which is actually pretty low carb. Not that I should be eating it at all. But at least it was fatty. And it was good. 

Dinner: 2 Nathans hot dogs, some low sugar ketchup and  a colby jack cheese stick.

Breakfast (yes I actually ate breakfast!) two slices of bacon. 

Solidly down four belt notches. 

Lunch: 8 mild buffalo wings from Bono’s. OUT OF TWENTY. Talk about eyes bigger than stomach. Leftovers though. Gotta love left over wings. 

Dinner: More hot wings, six of them.
