Day 12 in Ketosis...I think
Monday, January 09, 2017      7 comments

The title of this blog entry speaks for itself. I'm tracking all my macros in SP, but I find that I'm still not 100% convinced that I'm in full ketosis. I say this because although I do find that I have mental clarity that I didn't before, and I... Read more
Day 2 in Ketosis
Friday, December 30, 2016      4 comments

I had to start the counter over. I fell off the carb wagon hard (did you hear the thump) on Christmas and it took me a couple days to get back into ketosis. It is what it is, but now that I'm back in ketosis, I feel great again and plan to push ... Read more
Day 32 in ketosis
Thursday, December 22, 2016      2 comments

When I woke up this morning, I peed on a ketostix, as I normally do, and found it was pretty darn pink. That's a good color to anyone in ketosis. It means the litmus paper registered a high number of ketones, which means my body is making a lot ... Read more
Day 31 of the keto diet
Wednesday, December 21, 2016      6 comments

In the first few weeks of being in ketosis, your body is learning to fuel itself with ketones instead of glycogen which can make you feel sluggish when working out because your body is just not very good at it yet. Until last week, I felt like g... Read more
Back in ketosis
Tuesday, December 20, 2016      2 comments

It took about 48 hours of eating less than 20 carbs to start registering keytones on the keto sticks again. During that time, I did not have 'keto flu' symptoms, so I'm thankful for that, but I did feel a bit sluggish from all the extra water we... Read more
More carbs, please!
Wednesday, December 14, 2016      4 comments

Yesterday, I ate 50 carbs and still managed to register 'trace' amounts of keytones on the keto strip this morning. I've read conflicting info about the number of carbs you can eat to stay in ketosis. The information varies in that the 'guarant... Read more
Keto diet
Monday, December 12, 2016      4 comments

It's been a while since I blogged on SP. Mostly because I just wasn't using it. I got a fitbit in December of 2014 and started tracking my calories and fitness minutes on the fitbit site. 12.5 months later (also known as just past the warranty p... Read more
Day 310 - WTH?
Wednesday, June 25, 2014      2 comments

Has it really been 178 days since I last posted a blog? Unreal. I decided to post a blog today because I'm feeling rather HANGRY. For those of you who don't know what that means, it is a combination of hungry and angry, so it means I am ... Read more
Day 132 - Countdown to spring
Saturday, December 14, 2013      1 comments

It's been a while since I posted anything - 56 days to be exact. In that time I have injured my foot, and recovered, ran a 5k in stellar time and hit my longest run yet (6.2 miles). I'm still in awe at how far I have come with running in such a... Read more
Day 76 and the Zombie Walk is upon us
Saturday, October 19, 2013      2 comments

I have been working towards the goal of losing 15 pounds before the Zombie Walk and have lost one third of my goal. What I didn't realize when I set that goal was how using the scale as the measurement for my success would be so completely wron... Read more
Day 60...
Thursday, October 03, 2013      2 comments

My family and I are going camping this weekend. We leave tomorrow and return Sunday. I'm really looking forward to it. Fresh air, campfire, leaves changing colors and s'mores. What more could a girl ask for? We tent camp, but we just bought a ne... Read more
Day 53, but what does it mean?
Thursday, September 26, 2013      2 comments

If the day 1 version of myself could talk with the present day (day 53) version of myself about how it feels to not smoke it would probably go something like this. "It can't feel that good and there is no way that you can run that far or for th... Read more
Day 48 of smoke freedom!
Sunday, September 22, 2013      4 comments

I'm closing in on the zombie walk date pretty rapidly and have not made as much progress as I would have liked. I've lost 5 pounds (1/3 of my total goal), but I have to give myself props for having done that while quitting smoking. I have also ... Read more

Day 36 of Smoke Freedom....38 days until the Zombie Walk
Tuesday, September 10, 2013      3 comments

I haven't weighed myself recently, but I'm pretty sure I won't hit my 15 pound weight loss milestone before the zombie walk. I'm working out every day, staying within my calorie range, and feel great, but the weight just doesn't seem to be movin... Read more
