Turn Down for what? .....100 lbs baby!!!

Sunday, November 09, 2014

Hit it this month (by the skin of my teeth but who cares?). 194.8 says the scale 3 days in a row now. I can't do my official monthly result blog that was due on Friday because I was late for the gym and had to skip measurements because I was busy doing this:

    Well, you're within spitting distance of hitting the BIG 100 and I certainly do hope that you hit it! I hope you smash through it and never have to see it again! (unlike me, who's seen the 100 lbs lost mark twice and will hopefully see it at least once more!)

Rededication

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

As many of you know, I've been low-carbing since August. It has worked out well and I decided to continue eating a ketogenic diet until December when I travel to Jamaica. After that I plan to slowly reintroduce complex carbs, just not as much as I use to eat, maybe no more than 40% of my daily calories.

That's still the plan but this weekend I took a break, on Friday night I went out to a Japanese place with my girlfriends to celebrate one of them passing her medical boards (yes, the celebration was a few months delayed- she had a baby right after). The hibachi sauce was sugary and I had some sake. I also ate the cream cheese icing off the cupcake. The rest of the day I ate very little carbs- mostly from my salad at lunch. Saturday night we went out again to celebrate another friend's birthday. Our group kept growing and soon our reservation for 6 at Fleming's Steakhouse had to abandoned because our group grew to 15. As you may imagine, it is pretty difficult to get a reservation for such a large group at the last minute so we ended up at TGIF, I know, how the mighty have fallen. I had some buffalo wings which was breaded and the Jack Daniels sauce on my steak was sweet so I again had too many carbs that day.

Never to fear, I resumed my low-carb eating on Sunday and for good measure, I went very low-carb, almost no-carb on Sunday. The sugar crash came and it was horrible, I had such a pounding headache I couldn't even go to the gym on Monday. However by last night I was back in keto. So what's the point of all this? Well rededicating myself to low-carb after two night of indulgence also made me look at what else I can tighten up a little. Over the last couple of months I've been using my stationary bike more and more and while I push myself on the bike, I've been doing less workouts that work all my muscles. So starting November 1, I'm going back to some of my Jillian Michaels videos and limiting the bike to 2 days per week.
