Thursday is always a good day as far as I’m concerned! I hope everyone is having a great and happy week as we get ready to slide into the weekend! Yesterday, we were running all kinds of errands and running around with our heads cut off but we still got everything done, including the workout! I got 3 workouts down and 3 more to go to make up for last week, I’m so serious about making every single week count!

Yesterday workout was fast and very explosive. Interval strength training is kicking my butt but I love it. I only did about 30 minutes of lifting but with only about 10 seconds between reps, my muscles screamed for relief. Even though back and biceps are my worse strength areas, yesterdays workout showed me just how far I have come in those 2 areas! Not only did I increase my weight but I was able to slide from one exercise to the next with no break in between. I’m loving the feeling of having gains in the gym! Today, because of my schedule, I will be doing cardio at home and then waking up at 3 a.m. to do strength training! We gotta get these goals taken care of for sure!

 

 

On the eating front, I am so happy to report I had some bomb honey garlic chicken for dinner last night! I’ll admit I had to take the small hit for honey to my macros but those were my only carbs/sugars of the day so I’m good. Don’t worry I took a few pictures so you all could see! If someone like me can throw this stuff together than anyone can! Had 2 meals as usual and fasted for 18 hours to complete the routine. My fasting is actually getting to be fun because instead of doing just the warrior fasting, I have been doing random fasts to mix my body up and I really feel like it’s working! My tummy has no idea when food is coming it just knows when it comes, there will be lots of greens and some amazing proteins until I get to the point where I can just eat veggies which is my goal later in life!

 

 

 

 

I promised to show you guys my seedlings are coming in and I also want to show you all my cool little ghetto grow box I made out of a tote!

 

 

 

 

I’m growing red leaf and mixed leaf lettuce to start and then some herbs! Hopefully, after this, I can transfer them to a hydroponic system later once I learn more and more! Have a fabulous day homies and I’ll be back to write a little more Friday which promises to be adventurous around here with all the freezing rain we are supposed to get, my goodness!

Good morning to all of you and happy Tuesday! I am hoping that everyone had a safe and fun new year and that you all are settling into this glorious new beginning. This morning has started off fantastic, I just knocked out my first workout of the year and I must say it was fantastic! I love college football and as the games were playing I must have dozed off at halftime because I woke up at like midnight and my body was really wanting to get this first workout of the year in the books! My workout consisted of chest and triceps and even though I felt I pushed it, I was kinda on exploration mode this morning at the gym. I’m still fairly new to the layout and I found myself wandering around trying to see were this and that goes.lol The elliptical and I are back on great terms and we worked together for about 20 minutes of nice paced cardio. As you all know I absolutely love that machine and I actually look forward to cardio because of it!

Yesterday I had one of my signature obese salads with Romain, Green Onion, and Arugula and it was delicious, although I ran out of the homemade dressing so I’m hoping I still have the ingredients to bust out a few more batches later today! Of course, I followed the salad with my simple baked chicken and a tall glass of water. To be honest, I really only have maybe 4 or 5 things that I make over and over again, I’m pretty basic and simple with my Keto meals. The kids are back home from their dad’s and I’m so glad to see them; however. they were loaded down with all types of cookies and candy from the holidays with the other half of the family. I was like noooo! I felt like Kevin in that movie Home Alone.lol. Everything they brought home looked amazing and of course, loaded with sugar and I did all I could to look away. Ugh! It feels amazing to have their energy and enthusiasm back in the house, they just make the atmosphere seem better! O.k I have to mention that I fasted 20 hours yesterday and only had one meal, which is something I really try not to do because I don’t want to be malnourished or anything. I don’t know how it works for all of you but if I have too many days that I’m under a certain caloric intake I end up binging and we can’t have that!

 

I just wanted to share something with you guys that’s completely and totally off topic for me but Have you all seen Dave Chappelle’s new stand up comedy show’s on Netflix? There are two of them and they are absolutely hilarious. His comedy is certainly not for everyone, but to me, he has an amazing mixture of interesting topics and the punchlines are always on point! You should definitely check them out if you need a quick laugh this week. I wish you all the very best day possible and don’t forget that you are worth all the effort it takes to be the very best you can be! If you need any support or any advise that I can help with please don’t hesitate to check out my facebook page! Alexx’s Keto Avenue.
