Finally! I'm finally seeing some results of my hard work and it probably helps that I'm sticking with low carb and not cheating.
There was even gelato in the freezer... my all-time favorite gelato (this was on Monday when I did a quick experiment to see how sugar carbs will affect me after 4 days of low carb and it did not go well... I felt awful!). Anyway, my favorite gelato... I had a little, put it back in the freezer and didn't touch it again despite it being in there for three days! Charles ended up finishing it and I didn't even want it! That is HUGE progress for me!
I think I'm finally done detoxing and I'm starting to feel pretty good. I'm wiped out exhausted today because I slept horribly last night but that happens sometimes. I still want to get to the gym this week and I'm thinking tomorrow is my best bet.
Also, I need to stop saying I'm doing low carb/keto because if I allow myself up to 100 grams of carbs (not the "bad" ones) that's not keto. It's just low carb.
I've been at under 50 and under for most of last week but this week I'm adding in some healthy foods (black beans into my taco salad specifically for iron and that will up my carbs past 50 on the days I eat it) so, I'm doing low carb, not keto but those carbs are the good ones.
Another goal that I have is to lose 10 pounds by the time we visit Sarah the weekend of July 8th so that's one pound a week (I decided this last week which gave me 10 weeks to lose 10 pounds) which puts me ahead by 0.8 lbs this week!
I'm sure if I do what I'm supposed to, stick to the plan and work out I can lose more but I wanted to pick a doable goal and it would be my lowest weight since 2007 so if I can do it I'll be thrilled and if I can do more I'll be even more thrilled lol.
And finally I'm also starting my new dog portrait commission tomorrow and I'm very excited about that!
