Back To Basics

It’s on today because I finally got some sleep. It wasn’t looking too good at first because of the college national championship game last night had me up a little later than I planned but the game was certainly worth it. After Alabama’s freshman backup threw a game-winning touchdown in overtime I was too pumped to go to sleep so I headed to the gym. Granted it was after 1 in the morning but hey I was up and the gym is right behind my place so I’ll take it.Once I got home and hit the bed it was lights out and into some of the best damn sleep I have had this year!

Once I made it to the gym I was able to do about 30 minutes of cardio on my favorite elliptical machine. I needed a little more than my usual 20 minutes because as you know I really slacked last week so I did about 10 minutes more with no real discomfort. I’ll probably just start doing 30 on the regular now that I know it feels fine. in the strength training department, I did a chest and triceps circuit workout and that felt amazing. My whole upper body is still shaking but it was a good push! I’m back at it later tonight for back and biceps! Maybe I needed those few days off because my body felt fresh and super responsive the entire workout! Not to mention I was in the midst of a 20 hour fast and you all know how much I really believe in fasted cardio.

 

The diet, and by that I mean what I ate because I’m not on a diet in the traditional sense, I did pretty well getting back on track. The whole 2 meal thing is back on and that’s the way I want to keep it because it seems to keep my body satisfied, plus with keto, the foods are so low in carbs that I don’t feel bloated or weighted down. I got another great smoothie yesterday which is becoming a daily habit and with the chia seeds more filling. Today when I woke up I got to have one of my large salads with chicken and cheese, simply amazing how easy and delicious this way of eating can be. It helps in my case that I am so damn routine with my tastes because I really think I could have a salad a day for the rest of my life and be just fine with little else. I got issues I’m aware.

I’ve been reading a lot of blogs lately and I am so proud of how many people are doing more to get healthier and happier. I think it’s fantastic that you all have decided to do what makes you happy and help others as well. No matter what I do I always look forward to the next post I read on here because every day someone somewhere inspires me and I’m so very grateful. Lastly, I am happy to report that my seedlings are slowing starting to show in my lettuce cups! I’m so happy and I can’t wait to experiment with different methods to produce my own healthy foods.

Salad Game Proper

 

No gym today and I feel pretty good about it! I’m taking it slow and learning what works best for me. Today my post will be shorter than usual because I have a ton of work to do. I’m really very surprised at how good my body feels today. Last night I had a lot more calories than normal because my body just felt like an incinerator! I didn’t eat terribly unhealthy but man I had such hunger. I’m thinking it’s because of the workouts so I will have to maybe change some things around because going to the gym is not an option I have to go 3 times a week at the very least! No excuses!

 

Yesterday’s food was very simple as usual I just had a large and delicious salad and my favorite pizza on the planet, chicken crusted pepperoni pizza:

I am a salad junky and I’m not afraid to admit it! If you’re interested in the low carb pizza recipe here ya go………Pizza yum!

If you’re eating a low carb diet you absolutely must try using pork rinds as your croutons! I really love the taste and they have no carbs yet a delicious crunch to your salad. I use sugar-free dressing when I can but yesterday I used my son’s real french dressing and I just took the hit on the carbs and sugar. of course I’ll be buying my dressing later today, I just didn’t want to run to the store for that 1 item!

Hey guys 1 thing I forgot to mention about the gym that was really cool was this new slide lock system for the machine weights! I’m not sure if it’s new or just new to me but I absolutely found it very easy to transition from light to heavyweight with just a flick of my finger! O.k I know that was out of nowhere but hey sometimes you gotta put stuff out there when it comes and it just popped into my brain.lol
