This is a Big Deal

I feel truly accomolished. My goals are not fully acheived yet but I must reward myself for this important milestone!

Today marks a pretty big day for me. I have officially seen a number on the scale that is less than 200 lbs. I know what you are thinking… That doesn’t mean I am actually less than 200 because weight fluctuates constantly, but today I actually stepped on the scale and saw a number that starts with a 1. It has been years since this was the case.

I still have a long way to go to meet my goals but it feels good to have real progress. I started at 232 lbs. I moved down to around 210-215 for a year (I got lax in my keto) and now I have hit a new milestone!

I have an insane amount of energy, my clothes are starting to fit and I can run a relatively smooth mile. There is still a long way to go and I am still above where a healthy person of my body type and height should be, bit this is real progress!

It takes a lifestyle change not just a gym trip no and again and the occasional salad. It isn’t easy but it feels good and is worth the effort.

My advice is to not have exceptions to your rules. “Oh I haven’t seen these people in awhile so I will indulge because we are having a good time” or “well its the holidays” are things that kill all progress because they halt the lifestyle change. If you make excuses and exceptions you will always find “special occasions”. Make a plan and stick to it. It works!

I feel proud and hopeful and thought I should share!

Ahi Tacos

The 5th day and the beginning of a new challenge!

The journey continues as the first work week ends. The true challenge of the weekend is upon us! Tonight I was victorious with a keto classic of Ahi Tacos! Sometimes it pays to live in a harbor town where you can have fresh fish frequently!

Third Day is the Charm

I like animals but I need to kill my fat cow!

Today marks the third day of my renewed vigor and spirit! I have successfully maintained my Keto meal plan:

Breakfast – Yogurt and Blue Berries

Lunch – Green Salad w/ Blue Cheese dressing

Dinner – Italian Sausage soup. Full of amazing vegetables and spicy flavors!!!!

Along with that my journey to health and wellness included a trip to the gym where I ran a mile (doesn’t sound like munch but for me that is like running to the moon…I will get better!) And worked my arms and shoulders!

It feels so good to be sore. That sounds counterintuitive but when you work in an office and are constantly mentally exhausted, it is a great feeling to be physically exhausted! It feels like a cleaner kind of tired! Anyway, I am done rambling for now!

Day 2

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!
