Hi, friends! Super-long post warning 🙂
It took a little longer than I would have liked, but as promised, I’m back!
I’m going to dive right in to my updates, but PLEASE NOTE: the following has a lot of personal information, including my weight, measurements, etc. and “before” photos. If you think you might be uncomfortable having this knowledge, please skip this blog! Thanks 🙂 Now, seriously, updates:
The holidays were rough, mang. I ate like a crazed lunatic and barely moved my buttcheeks. As such, my weigh-in on December 28, 2014 put me a higher weight than the first time I started keto: 237.9. I spent the last week getting back into the swing of things and I’ve gotta say, I’m so glad I did. I already feel a million times better.
I started a new job on December 17th. I’m really enjoying my work and my co-workers. I’ve been going for walks for the first half of my lunch and making sure to stay hydrated (a habit I couldn’t keep up with at my last job) all day. The commute does take away about an additional two hours a day of my life, so I’ve had to make a pretty strict schedule for working out in order to meet my goals. Speaking of which….
Oh, the last year has been a mess. After my car accident on January 15, 2014, my entire fitlife changed. There are a lot of things I can’t do now due to permanent nerve damage and having limited use of my right hand, but I’m back in the swing of things and sucking up my whininess about not heavy lifting. Instead, I’m starting out with some resistance band workouts and what body-weight exercises I’m capable of (so, not pushups, lol).
To start the progress marker, I’m going to upload my stats here. I contemplated about this for a long time–a lot of people have access to this blog and I don’t know that I like the idea of everyone knowing my weight, but… then I decided, wtf does it matter?! I’m ready to change and I don’t particularly care what people know about me. SO! I’ll add my log from the 28th, then add today’s:
As you can see, my first week back on Keto was super-awesome, as it tends to be (mostly because of water weight, but that’s normally around 4 lbs for me, so hopefully some real weight loss, too!). Also, my body measurements, so that when the scale is being a total asshole, I can feel better:
Annnnd some photos I took today, for a Going HAM on Keto! event I’m participating in with some of my favorite Ketopians, and yes, that is my less-than-thrilled face:
So, I have some work to do! And I’m ready. As always, feel free to follow me on Instagram for loads of Keto food porn or just to say hi and be friends 🙂 Until next time!
