Sometimes it takes several restarts for me to get back on track and this is one of those times.
I can honestly say that I haven't officially "cheated" in the last 5 days but I've also gone higher carb than I like to do and what's good for my body and health and my weigh-in on Monday (which had been my new start) was mostly water weight so I want a whole new beginning starting on my official weigh-in day (it makes sense in my head anyway lol).
There's just something about starting with a fresh slate that I really love but I plan on this being my last restart for a while! And, while my food wasn't officially cheat food I feel that's it's more fair and honest to start from day 0 than to say it's been 5 days when some of it was iffy. Once again, all this makes sense in my head.
As I posted on Monday (and am reposting here with some edits since I deleted Monday's post) my weight, my body fat % and my measurements have all gone up over the last week or two (which is what happens when you don't track, have cheat days and overeat) but since today is Day 1 (again) I want to have an official beginning with official numbers no matter how big they are.
All I can really do is get back on track with strict keto (under 30 net grams) and stick to it with no cheat days not just for weight loss but because my Fibromyalgia flares have been horrible with the addition of more carbs and fruit.
Also, my workouts are being moved back to the gym as of tomorrow because the home workout didn't leave me as sore as I like to be and set off my back pain. I just need to make it all fit into my day. And, of course, on days I absolutely can't get to the gym I'll do something at home, probably yoga or abs or something. As long as I work out in one way or another I'll be happy!
