Week Zero Low Carb (A New Beginning - Again) - Thursday Check-In (Month One)

Week Zero Low Carb Weigh-In:
01/26/2017:            +1.6 pounds
Total lost:                27.2 pounds
Current Weight:     202.8 pounds

I want to thank everyone for their support and advice last night after my long venting post. Once I was done with the venting I actually went to bed and fell asleep by 7:45 :O and when I woke up this morning I felt refreshed and not angry at diets and low carb and weight loss again so I think I was just exhausted and wiped out and I'd felt like crap for a while now (I'm sure the carbs I ate didn't help :/)

But I finally felt pretty good so I did some thinking and some reading and I've come back to what I wrote on January 1st of this year...

"...Today is the day to start everything fresh! It's the perfect day for new beginnings... the slate has been wiped clean and a whole new year stretches out before us!

My goals are actually very simple to look at... I want to do low carb/keto for the entire year and get back to working out. My workout goal is 5-6 days a week of some kind of exercise. I have workout plans but I basically want to do something, even if it's just a stretch, for most of the week.

Now, I've done enough low carb on and off to know that I feel and look my best while doing it, not to mention the weight loss and I've had enough practice to know that cheat days will eliminate any progress that I make so the goal is to have NO cheat days at all. Plus every cheat day will cost me $20 so that should definitely help me stay on track!

I'm actually considering trying out some recipes for keto "treats" so I don't feel totally deprived but I'll deal with those later. For the upcoming week, since I'm re-detoxing all over again, I want to keep it simple. Simple meals, simple foods and focusing in making it through the week. Then, when I have my keto feet under me again and feel like I'm really back into the low carb thing, I can start looking at new recipes and ideas..."

This is what I'm trying again, only a month after the first time. I actually went almost three weeks without cheating that time and I think I could have kept going had I not given in.

I also want to shift focus more to healthy food (more veggies, some fruit and berries) and a sustainable diet. And, despite what I said when I was venting yesterday, low carb is sustainable to me. It's just not "fun" lol.

The hardest part for me is not giving in to the junk but the more I do low carb, the easier it gets to stick to and to avoid temptation.

So I'm starting again.

One of these days it'll stick!

Also, I'm going back to the plan where every time I cheat I owe the kids cash. They're all in on it now so it's $30 a cheat day and I don't have that kind of money rofl
