Here we are, another day done. Where does the time go?!
this morning was rough – up at 2 with rain….and couldn’t get to sleep until after 4. Needless to say getting up with the new alarm time of 6:30 didn’t happen. In fact I didn’t hear my husband leave….which I was counting on him waking me up. Apparently I was close to comatose.
Anyway – up at 8, hitting the exercise room by 8:30. Got through my cardio and decided to get right into the weights since I was so late. Bad move. I had depleted my glucogyn with the cardio, I was exhausted. So I had brunch, made a couple of phone calls then went to complete the weights. It worked nicely.
Made a few more calls, took care of some business, made a fabulous keto dinner and here we are.
I can actually feel my muscles tonight. I’ve been really good about exercise for a total of about 4 whole days. wow. Prior to this it was hit or miss. Most mornings I would do cardio and/or body weight exercises but missed the entire 9 days I was out of state. (I really gotta get better about that) But for the last 4 days I have been consistent and I can feel them. And I’m standing and walking taller.
I can only imagine how much it will improve as I continue this path. And as I’m dialing in my nutrition I can only imagine how quickly I’ll start to see the results. In fact I see some of it now….can’t wait for those around me to notice!
I have decided to go with a keto diet for the next 11 weeks. (because that’s when my vacation starts!!!! woot!!!) Clearly I will do as much as I can to remain keto while on vacation but that’s really when it becomes out of your control.
But again, I digress…Keto for me.
What is Keto you ask?
High fat, moderate protein and low carb. I had asked the question of just how low carb it was and was informed that it can vary depending on the individual.
I will let you know where I end up in the carb ‘ladder’ once I figure it out. Today was fairly low….
Following a keto diet can have many benefits and I would urge you to check it out if you’re looking for a healthy alternative to the Standard American Diet. Which we know…isn’t healthy at all. 🙂
And of course you can always ask me. Just leave a comment and your e-mail.
Lesson today – must eat before lifting…..cardio on an empty stomach is good. Lifting on an empty stomach is not.
