Good morning everyone and welcome to the blog! I am waking up feeling blessed but a little tired because I have been wrestling with bouts of insomnia! The other night I was up all night and into the next day and that’s just not like me so even though it’s not clinical it certainly feels like insomnia.lol. last night I slept pretty well but it’s like I am still catching up and I could use about 4 more hours! As most of you know sometimes you just don’t have that extra sleep time and you got things you need to get done! So enough of my complaining and moaning let’s get this thing off!
This past week I worked out 3 or 4 times and while that’s pretty good it’s a failure for me because I planned to workout at least 5 times! I just have to adjust to life so that I keep my commitment to myself and get my work done! I can’t front I was having a hard time getting up early and getting my workout in.lol. Even though my fitness watch says I burned more calories this week I still feel like I could have done more. It”s crazy how I really have set such high goals for myself but in order to get this done my goals have to be obese! This week I have my 3 days of cardio at work and I will try to get 4 lifts in this week as well so hopefully, I will report better progress in this area next time. I need to do a better job of getting up early because I have been going to bed earlier so I should feel rested and ready to go. Working out is a small weapon in the obesity fight but it can be powerful in the mental department, I certainly need that energy in my life!
On the diet front, things are going great and I have finally broken this crazy fat loss stall I was having! It’s really funny because when doing keto your suppose to do moderate protein but any time I up my meat intake I seem to always lose the fat! So lately I have been eating a lot more meat and fish will healthy fats and that seems to be doing the job so thank god!! It’s funny that I have been eating fewer veggies and that has helped me lose a few pounds as well which is strange! I recently bought the green super drink Organfi and so far it’s very good tasting and minty plus it seems to have a ton of healthy greens and turmeric so I’m thinking of relying on this drink for a while and see if it helps. Other than my large salads I’m not a big vegetable guy but I am well aware of the importance of having them and I’m slowly coming around to adding more and more. I’ve been doing the whole smoothie thing to get my greens in however I am aware that it’s important to have fresh whole greens! Hopefully, I can join the whole food plant based diet one day and make that what I do for the majority of my life but right now it’s hard for me to give up my delicious meats! I love the meats!! My plan this week is to make some cauliflower mash potato casserole with bacon and cheese as well as maybe a broccoli or cauliflower soup I’m not sure on the second dish of the week yet. I really need to have an all vegetarian food day in my regular routine.
This week on the fasting front I’m doing 3 42 hour fasts because they have been very instrumental in my current fat loss of late. Since I don’t eat on my work days anyway this fasting regiment seems to be the most effective for me. The only time it’s really difficult is when I get off of work and I’m super tired my body starts thinking it’s hungry and hits me with a really bad craving! My tummy gets all load and demonstrative like I haven’t eaten in 10 days but once I get over that one I’m good because I get to eat the very next morning.lol
That’s the blog folks I wish you a wonderful week and a very inspiring journey today! If anyone needs anything or any support I got you!
