I in a dangerous place and I need to get back on track!
I find that I am ever so busy! I made great progress to get under 200 lbs for the first time in years. I made it down to 192, never quite crossing that 190 milestone; however the holidays and a great vacation to China (Before CoronaVirus, thank goodness) I have crept back up to just south of 200!
I am at a testing point! I cannot allow myself to cross back above 200, never again!!!! I need motivation and I need to get back my commitment to Me to, health, happiness and Keto 2 Speedo!
I have lapsed but I will work harder as I continue to progress towards my goals. Holidays and vacations are dangerous. I need to remember that there are no excuses and no “special occasions” because the second I allow them I will find that everything can be a special occasion!
Thanks for reading g my rant!
What do I do when I need to feed the sweet tooth?
What do I do when I just got back from the gym and and it is late and I must satisfy my sweet tooth?
I eat strawberries and whip cream obviously!!!!!
Just like most fruits on Keto (and generally all foods on any diet) moderation and portion size is the key to happiness!
1/4 cup of strawberries has about 2-3 grams of net carbs and about 2 grams of sugars.
They are an amazing treat that is necessary to make it in the long run! Food should still be fun and tasty! Just control the portions… Except with the whip cream of course! With less than 1 gram of carbs per serving you can go nuts with that!!!!
When I say genius I am not kidding! This is the best thing to happen to the sandwich since sliced bread (shoot! Thay actually made sense). It isn’t a lettuce wrap but it is still a keto sandwich! Find out how!
I cannot claim credit for this marvel. My lovely girlfriend made these! The idea is simple… How do you make a keto sandwich, because let’s face it, I used to live off of sandwiches (thus the need for drastic life change). But so much of a sandwich is good:
Mustard – nothing wrong there
Lunch meats – OK maybe not the best but definitely not bad, especially since I love turkey
A slice of cheese – not bad in reasonable quantities
Some lettuce/tomato/onion/peppers – not only ‘not bad’ but actually really good for you
So I ask: Where does a sandwich go wrong?
You’re smart so I am sure you have guessed it, especially since this is a Keto thing!
Bread: So useful to keep all that good stuff in line, but not the greatest thing to eat consistently! That is where my love struck pure keto genius: Cut a bell pepper in half and use that!
It is so simple and so elegant! I cannot believe I never thought of it before! Not only does it add a satisfying CRUNCH to your sandwich, but I freaking love bell peppers too!!! It’s a win-win for sure! Anyway, today was day 4 of the new regiment! I went to the gym and maintained my diet goals!
I am serious about getting to a healthier and happier state of being!
The second day is the most important of a new routine! It means it is not a one off deal!
Today is day 2 of my renewed journey towards health and happiness. I have eaten a keto diet with lots of good vegetables and some fatty chicken thighs!!! Also I am day two in a row at the gym! I will stay strong and writing this down here (whether it is read by anyone or not) is a huge phsycological help!
Please join me in a journey towards wellness!
As all things worth doing are, making the permanent lifestyle transition from unhealthy to healthy is difficult! Like starting a cold engine that has not turned over in a year, my body aches with the change it so desperately requires! I had grand plans when I started Keto2Speedo. And like much of life, I made excuses and digressed instead of progressed! I know my goals are attainable and I also know the value of not giving up, no matter how far you feel you have fallen. Therefore, I will make my second attempt here to create a lifestyle change that is both permanent and healthy! Keto is the start to that! I have grand plans of keeping myself honest via this website. It will stand as a journal of progress and a sort-of how-to guide. If I can prove that it is possible for this 215 lb lazy person to get healthy than I want others to be similarly inspired by what I do!
Today I started a Keto dieting plan and went to the gym. I have done both off and on for years to little or no effect. I know it is because I am inconsistent and have not created a lifestyle of healthy and progressive habits!
That lifestyle starts today! Join me on Keto2Speedo! Please povide encouragement, advice and good recipes!!! And in return I hope to do the same for you and others!
It is no secret that dieting is not easy! How do you stick with it?
The real question is: How do you spoil yourself while on Keto? Because, let us be honest, no matter the diet you are on food should always be fun!! Eating just to survive sounds lame!
This is how I spoil myself:
I know what you are thinking… But Speedo Dude, we are not made of money! And I say neither am I but Sashimi is something that I am willing to spend my hard earned dollars on! Especially since my girlfriend demands it of me 😜!
