30 days of low carb/keto.
30 days of staying under 50 total grams of carbs and around the 30's in net grams of carbs.
30 days of no cheating.
30 days of low sugar, low carb, new recipes, new keto foods, better choices and more intelligent decisions.
30 days of losing weight, of feeling amazing, of having a ton of energy, of working my butt off in the kitchen and in my workouts, of planning, weighing, measuring and tracking every food and every meal.
30 days of being aware of everything that goes in my mouth. Of losing pounds and inches while finding my willpower and strength.
30 days of a new beginning of my weight loss, my way of eating and my life.
I am so proud of myself. In the last 30 days I have had no crap or junk, aside from a couple of things that fit into my current macros and calories.
I have lost 9.6 pounds in those 30 days and 41 pounds in total. I am able to work out harder and longer each time. I don't need to nap and actually find myself waking up earlier and earlier. I have so much energy that I'm not sure what to do with it all. My skin is clear and there's no bloating and almost no stomach issues.
I feel like this is what works for me and this is what I will continue to do until I lose all the weight I have left to lose and probably beyond that. Some days there may be exceptions, maybe once or twice a year, but I will deal with that later.
I have never gone past 30 days without cheating before but this time I'm not even considering it. Those foods are just no longer part of my diet or my life and I'm okay with that. I don't crave them at all anymore and that feels great.
I knew I had this willpower somewhere! Granted, it took me far too long to find it, but the point is I did find it and I am not letting go of it for any reasons!
So, here's to celebrating the last 30 days, the next 30 days and all the days that are to come after that!
