  • Weight 8/14/20: 251.0

    Friday weekly average weight: 251.5

    So it’s Friday, and that means it is time to take my average weight from happy scale and record it as my weekly weigh in on Myfitnesspal.

    I have lost throughout the week, but since my first weigh-in last Friday, I am up 2.3 pounds. I’m not going to let that get to me though. I’m just going to keep going on my way, and work I’m making good choices. This week was really just a starting point. I still feel good about the changes I have been making!

    So from here, I take my weekly weight and plug that into tdee calculator. That figures out my daily maintenance calories, and I subtract 500 from that, just so I have a general guideline to think about. I am mostly trying to eat intuitively. I am looking at my carbs though. I was trying to remember the number my diabetic nutritionist told me. For some reason I think 45/meal and 15 for snacks? So I lowered my amount a bit to 45-15-45-15-45 which would be around 165. I usually average around 200 or so, so we will see if changing that up makes a difference.

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to a fresh week. Have a good weekend, everyone!

  • I hate when high carb vegans/vegetarians/etc are super smug on this platform about eating fruit all day and being in excellent shape.

    Like, that’s really fucking great for you, but don’t shit all over keto and Atkins because your body processes carbs in a non-lethal way.

    Low-carb life isn’t for EVERYONE, but it is a literal life saver for people who are genetically predisposed to metabolic disorders and insulin resistance, so mind ya business.

  • (Day 18/30)

    Okay weirdest thing ever:

    Vegetarian keto seems to be working for me. This is only my third day, but like, I feel good. I don’t think I would do this forever, but it feels like a good option for lowering calorie intake without trying very hard (I don’t like to track because it makes me crazy).

    I originally was only going to do one workweek of vegetarian meals but I think I might extend it to next week as well…. maybe even til the end of these 30 days.

    For reference, I’ve been consuming a generous amount of protein powder, almond milk matcha lattes, pan fried tofu, and green beans. Next week I’ll probably do a big spicy tofu stir-fry for my meal prep.

    I get mildly triggered by vegetarianism because I was a vegetarian for about 6 years, and for half of that time I was struggling with a restrictive eating disorder. I was always tired and borderline anemic, even though I tried to eat as balanced of a diet as possible when I wasn’t restricting. I never felt better than when I started incorporating animal fats back into my diet.

    I think I’m far enough away from this part of my life that I can incorporate ocassional periods of plant-based eating into my lifestyle without hurting myself. The minute I feel weird about it, I’m gonna have a steak though lmao.

    Dinner was super basic - balsamic chicken, mozzarella and tomatoes. No fresh basil this time 😢 I wish I would have gotten myself together and at least planted some basil and cherry tomatoes in gallon buckets this spring but noooope I did none of that. Oh well.

  • When I grabbed this tank I had no idea it was going to hang so loosely today!  Since it’s a shirt in my normal rotation I KNEW I had pics of it throughout my quarantine weight loss efforts and since you guys were so adamant on me not just providing a link to the previous pic, here it is in glorious side-by-side comparison.  

    Crazy what a four month and 25.8 pound difference can make in how a shirt fits!

  • I ALWAYS have to have my coffee moderately sweet and creamy. For the longest time, I would add raw honey and a bit of creamer because I’m a slut for fancy flavors in coffee. 

    Well since I can’t do sugar now, I’ve tried finding new add-ins for coffee to make it taste good. And I’ve only gotten half-way decent results. Sugar-free/unflavored creamers taste like ass. I eventually found out that the Splenda/stevia blend tastes really good and using half and half. It tastes decent enough, but nothing special.

    BUT GUYS. I wanted flavored coffee really bad the other day. So, I had the idea to get some McCormick flavor extract. I’ve been adding a little bit of cake batter extract to my coffee and OH MY GOD it’s SO good.

    I went on Amazon and found a seller that offers 60 different flavor extracts, so I got a pack of 5 flavors to try out: raspberry, blueberry, brownie batter, carrot cake, and pumpkin pie. I’m SO excited for them to get here and to try them. My sugar-free coffee will never be the same.

  • SO. This is definitely a work in progress. I REALLY was craving some greens and Nutrients and wanted a green smoothie, but had to figure out how to make it keto friendly. I decided on ½ an avocado to replace a banana I’d normally use, ½ a cucumber, half a bag of spinach, ginger, lime juice, matcha powder, and a bit of water. I wanted to sweeten it, so I started with 1 tsp of honey, then figured I’d try the stevia I use for coffee.

    The flavor honestly is pretty good! However, it’s very low calorie. I think next time, I’ll use an entire avocado, a little less water for a thicker consistency, and maybe experiment with some canned coconut milk. If I could find a non-flavored plant based protein powder I like, I could add that too and make it a whole meal.

    I will definitely make an update next time I make this and tweak it! Also, can we talk about the fact that I’m NOT an avocado lover, have never purchased an avocado in my life, picked one based off a Tumblr post I saw years ago, and managed to pick the perfect one? So satisfying.

  • Gosh, I look like such a bitch in those ootd pics! I promise you I’m not. Adding this happy selfie with erp for balance. 

    HUGE NEWS IN THIS HOUSEHOLD!  JUST NOW, like within the last 20 minutes, erp figured out how to roll from her stomach to her back!!!  She’s amazing at rolling from her back to her stomach but then gets stuck and cries for us to turn her back over. I’m watching her on the monitor and she’s flip flopped about 30 times! I think she’s got it!  I even video called Kevin so I could show him the monitor to watch! (he’s just in a different room, I’m lazy and didn’t want to get up) :P 

    Okay, back to regularly scheduled programming. 

    I did squats today for the first time in a month and they weren’t great on the ankle. I knew they would be challenging but I’m feeling the ankle more than I have in a few weeks so I think I should hold off on doing more. Although, it’s so sad - right before the fall I was FINALLY getting better at squats and now my form is shit again :( Oh well, all the time for improvement.

    Lunch today was my trusty lettuce wraps with mayo, Dijon mustard, chicken, havarti cheese, tomato and bacon. Dinner was my version of a philly cheese steak in a bowl - first time making it and I was very happy with myself!

    We’re supposed to get hit with a storm soon, but I was still able to take a walk after work. Now I guess I’ll just watch some Netflix and scroll through tumblr as usual…🥴

    Dinner last night and breakfast this morning. It looks like a lot of food.. in reality it would all fit on one plate but I don’t like some of my foods to touch 🤷‍♀️😂

    I don’t know why I didn’t know about putting everything bagel seasoning on avocado before last week. It’s sooo good and is now a staple in my breakfasts 😍
