I am so excited!!! I’m a little frustrated, but mostly I am excited!!!
I have a workout partner!!! I have been to the gym several times this week!
I have been doing yoga for almost 3 months now! I have already met one goal which is to be able to do camel pose!
I have done boot camp, core class, barre class and am exploring the activities that I like to do.
I also have a new favorite thing…
My Instant Pot!!!
Yes, I have been using my Pinterest Keto board and have been cooking up a storm!!! It’s been awesome!!!
But, I haven’t lost much weight, so I’m going to try a 3 day EGG FAST starting tomorrow!
And…June 1st, we are going to Colorado, WAY up in the mountains, pretty far east of Woodland Park in a place called Florissant to visit family. So I am setting a goal to lose between 6 and 10 pounds by the time we go. I want to be in much better shape than the last time we were out there.
It’s been two years since we have visited and the last time I was out there was just about two months after we had been T-boned by a vehicle that had run a red light. I was still healing from that accident and I was moving slowly and I also weighed about 40 pounds more than I do now. So I am really looking forward to this trip.
We don’t get to travel much or take many trips or vacations, so this is going to be a real treat for us and I am so excited because I’m already in much better shape than I was two years ago, and I plan to be in even better shape by the time we get there!
Here are some things that I have learned about my body over the last couple of months.
- Too much spinach salad aggravates my diverticulitis. I do much better staying on a more carnivore based diet.
- Too many carbs or sugars make my liver hurt which has ended up explaining SO much to me.
- When my sugar is high, I tend to have a problem with regulating my temperature so I usually get very hot.
One of the main things that I am learning, partially because I do Yoga With Adriene on YouTube and from following several doctors for keto…
Adriene says Find What Feels Good when doing Yoga. Also, keto can be a very personalized way of eating. Different foods affect different people in different ways. You have to find what works for you. Keto is not going to be the same for everyone. Yoga, especially when you start is not going to be the same for everyone. When it comes to your health DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. ‘
*UPDATE: Okay, so I was going to get this edited and posted last night, however, due to extreme weather and having to go sit in a storm shelter, that did not happen. I have also had a chance to look at my schedule and I am wondering if today is the best day to start my egg fast as we are extremely busy with end of school activities, including an award dinner on Wednesday evening.
I am also very tired this morning as last night was a little crazy with the weather, which is supposed to stay about the same for the next few days. But I am determined to get started on this endeavor.
Who knows, maybe I will do what I can and then break the fast on Wednesday evening and restart on Thursday. I have a plan. I have a specific goal, it is measurable and achievable. It’s completely doable. I just have to work on the scheduling of it.
I’m excited. I’m making positive life choices. I’m feeling better. I’m getting out and being more active. I hate to say it, but I had to get to a point where I was sick of where I was and I could make that decision to change.
Everything starts with a choice.
And that’s my simple thought for today!!
