200 Today!

Oooo so slow! But one more came off.

211 to 200 to 155

Part way there!

I haven't been measuring my ketones. I thought I'd wait until I feel I'm in there good; then begin measuring again.

How's everyone doing? Is the weather glorious where you are? It's been a streak of the most fantastic weather ever around here. Love Minnesota in the spring. Especially when it stays spring for a minute rather than slipping directly into summer as it sometimes can.

Onward and downward!

Yeahhhh - Onward and Downward!

Holding the door open - come on down, let's share the decade! I'll abandon you as soon as I can (no offense), but will wait for you down in the 180's.

Weather is nice here - mid 70's...wishing it was next weekend, but I'll take what I can get now!

Yay 200! You'll be firmly planted in Onederland before long, I just know it.

105* here today. The A/C is cranking away as I type this. You'd think after 33 years living in Phoenix I wouldn't dread it so much. Blech! Enjoy your lovely weather!

Please hold that door! I'll be in the same decade as you for a minute, but that's okay. It feels like a hard won thing and I want to enjoy it!

I say it all the time, but I love how you're just a marching down down down.

Oh that is hot! Hot hot hot. Believe it or not, but it gets very hot here as well. And we have humidity. Such extremes!

Daisy - I think it was karma giving me something to work on while everything else sorts out! I feel like this is the one big thing I'm doing well!

It is a gift to you! I was talking to a friend about chaos and when we have a manageable thing to focus on the other portions of life just might fall into place. I totally believe that is happening to you right now!

Fat Fast

I've done two entire (maybe three??) days of a fat fast to get my body in gear.

199 today!

199!

My scale is ANCIENT. I haven't bought a Tanita, but I have been affectionately calling mine The Counselor in deference to Sbarr and her beloved Mr. Tanita.

So . . . The Counselor was good to me the past couple of days.

201 - 200 - 199

I'm happy as a little girl!

*singing off tune*

When the HECK are you going to update your stats - you're not 201, silly! I would have updated that as soon as I got off the scale. Well, probably put on clothes first.

198

What the heck??

198!

I read a fantastic post on a site about Nutritional Ketosis. It was cited with multiple references, but I couldn't absolutely remark on the purity of those citations.

The reason I'm mentioning is one of the STOP moments for me reading it was where it talked about how NK works. How our bodies burn fat and that while being in ketosis is good, bottom line it still is a calories in/calories out deal. Which I believe we all know.

The difference is that while eating keto we feel so amazing, in control, craving-free, tons of energy, clarity of mind, focused, that staying in control of our eating is much easier. Not to mention the nutritional aspect!

I'm reading it again this morning and I'll report back if I glean any other gems as this sounds like I've truly cliffs-noted to a fault.

Oh!

I forgot to mention that today's keto reading was .4

Still searching for above .5

I believe that this week I will hit that goal.

198 - woooo hooooo!

That's awesome....I'm 193.8, so we'll probably be sharing the decade together for a while - I had hoped to leave you behind in the dust, ,but things got in the way. Had a fun weekend, but fun weekends have their price!

It's a decade I'm glad you're sharing sbarr! I won't mind when you leave me in the dust, but just know that I'll be nipping at your heels! A young un like you is good motivation for me!

And you're my keto hero I hope you know.

You need a better hero - yesterday this gal had 2 big slices of pizza (mostly toppings and about 1/4 of pizza's crust at the narrow end), a tiny sliver of pistachio cake and 2 potent sugary vodka drinks and probably look like the Pillsbury Dough Boy today. I hope I fit in my interview suit day after tomorrow.

But...and not sure why - I'm still in ketosis this morning! 0.7

Maybe it was the huge spoon of coconut oil I gobbled before going to bed...

This is part of the reason for my keto-hero-worship - you are totally keto-adapted, are able to make a choice and get right back on your plan. You never allow anything to derail and from the sounds of a few things there could have been reasons for derailment.

I posted a question about just that - to see if my CO glob skewed the numbers.

Who Runs the World - Girls!

It's a Beyonce day. She makes me shake my booty.

Hanging steady. Still not in ketosis. Maybe it's just not going to happen. Gah, but that's okay.

I ate a very small and delicious cob of corn last night dripping in butter. A choice that I do not regret, but holy hannah the macro skewing that can do. SIGH! heh!

I haven't been to the gym in a while. That could shake something up. Pup is going out of town for the weekend and while I love my husband dearly, it will be fun to have him gone! I can go to the gym for one thing. Not that he stops me, but I am very suggestible and it doesn't take much to talk me out or into anything.



This week I have dodged a popular ice cream place, delicious looking bread, pasta, and a grilled cheese sandwich. Whew!

I made my cauliflower casserole that I love, but that thing is kinda dangerous for me. I kept eating "bites" of it until more than I wanted was gone. I packaged up the rest and I'm having some later for a late lunch.

It's really good and creamy and must remind me of my tuna casserole I would make when my girls were little.

I've been actually making a bullet proof coffee in the morning. With HWC, coconut oil, a squirt of liquid Stevia, and MCT oil. Wow it is good! I froth the living love out of it and it's all creamy and mustache-making goodness.

Onward my friends.

Hopefully you'll get a couple of days at the gym with Pup gone... I totally understand the suggestible to do something more fun than working out.
