Keto Journey

So I wasn’t going to post anything until the end of my journey but I thought I would kind of go through day to day. Today is Day 1. I am 202.4lbs and 5’4. I am NOT doing strict keto. Working a full time job and living with my parents who do not do keto but do most of the cooking would make it very difficult to be strict on this but I’m majorly cutting out carbs and soda and energy drinks are being completely cut out. I will keep everyone updated on my results, my progress, any thoughts and even recipes if you’d be interested. For breakfast today I had bacon and eggs with a slice of swiss cheese. Lunch was a pouch of nutrisystem tuna salad (I had tried nutrisystem in the past and still have some food items). A snack was some peanuts and for dinner I’m having crunchy taco hamburger helper (Part of the not strict keto since this does have rice and chips in it along with preservatives) I am also going to try working out more. I went for a light walk today and did some push ups last night. I expect to workout more when I have days off. My boyfriend, his sister, and I hike and go for walks quite often which should help.

That’s all for now and I will keep you updated!


Technical issues and diet

Hello everyone!

So I first want to start off with apologizing for how late I am in posting something. Life has been a little crazy lately and I will explain everything that is going on. The one thing I won’t go into too much detail about is my best friend’s birthday was over the weekend and I didn’t have my laptop with me so that’s why I didn’t post then.

Recently, about two-three days ago, I tried to write a post for you guys and my laptop completely freaked out. It typed multiple letters for everything I wrote and my cursor stopped working. Even my space bar didn’t really want to work. Today however these issues seem to be fixed

As you all know from my other post we were waiting and struggling for my grandmother to be buried. I did post an update but, if you didn’t see it, she was buried on Saturday after a family member put up the rest of the money. I was given a donation on Gofundme and I am leaving it on there so, eventually, it will automatically refund back to the person. I didn’t feel right keeping it, even though it was smaller, because the full amount was put up by someone else and I didn’t really need it for that purpose. Her sister spoke at the wedding as the officiant and it was very beautiful. Thank you everyone for the support.

The second thing is that I mentioned in a previous post I was considering moving to overnights at work. I did end up doing this and this has been my first week on overnight’s schedule at work. I have been having a very hard time keeping to the sleep schedule and getting the appropriate amount of sleep. Especially since a lot of things in my life currently are making it so I can’t sleep during the day which would be ideal for work. I talked to my boss just today and am looking into going back to my previous schedule which worked a bit better for my life outside of work. Another big factor in that decision is that my boyfriend was moving to nights at his job so we’d have a similar schedule. His plans have changed so me on overnights would actually make our schedules farther apart.

The final thing that I’d like to talk about is weight loss and my diet. I am currently at 200lbs. I’m not big on sharing my weight with others but I feel like telling my followers on here will help keep me accountable. I’m 5’4 so, as far as BMI goes, I am obese. I have decided that, starting tomorrow, I am going to try the keto diet. I have heard very good things from people close to me and I want to try it out and see if it works for me. I have hypothyroidism and I’ve heard it can even help get your thyroid back to normal even though that’s not a proven thing and there currently isn’t a cure for thyroid disorders. I am on medicine for my thyroid though I should be taking it more regularly.

I am hoping that the keto diet will help with weight loss but also help with cutting down, if not quitting completely, my caffeine intake. I am currently having 2-3 energy drinks a day which, while also being horrible for my thyroid, is causing numerous issues for my health. Caffeine is very, VERY, addictive and I am hoping this helps me recover from those issues. I do have an instagram page. If anyone would be interested in me posting my keto journey pictures (as I go through it since tomorrow is my first day) let me know that in the comments. Again thank you all for the continued support and, as always, have a good night!
