Yeah, it's only been a few days but I'm already editing the plan based on how I feel physically and mentally
1) The fruit isn't going to work. It's leaving me feeling bloated, messing with my stomach and my non-stop headache is back so the fruit is going away and I'm going back to my stricter form of keto. I haven't decided on the sweet potato or butternut squash yet because I haven't tried them out but as of now the plan is to keep them at really small portion sizes so they fit into under 50 net grams of carbs.
Luckily I can still have berries (in carefully measured amounts) and I really like them so I'm good there. I figured it would be an experimental thing that might not work for me so I'm not totally disappointed in this. My body just doesn't like to deal with sugar in most forms I guess and that's how it is. I actually feel more like binging after eating the fruit as well so I think it doesn't work for me all around and I can live with that.
2) I'm definitely going with the Lauren Gleisberg workouts but I will also be playing with them. There are several exercises I need to switch out anyway due to my back acting up and I want to add in others that she doesn't include in her workouts. Basically, her workout is my template but I can add and subtract as I choose and I'm really excited about this. It's liking having the best of both worlds!
I'll be starting with the Beginner Phase of her Gym Weight Training 1.0 workout and I can't wait to get going! The entire workout plan should take a total of 12 weeks (give or take some due to life) so I think I'll do my measurements and body fat % testing 6 weeks into it and then at the end of the 12 weeks but we'll see what happens.
I still plan on starting at the gym tomorrow and I'm also considering tomorrow my new Day 1 not because I've cheated (because I haven't) but if I'm restarting a more strict version of keto then I want to start fresh. It makes sense to me to do it that way so that's what I'm going with.
And, as always, there's a lot of studying going on and I think it's actually going really well! I'm starting to feel more confident in my knowledge but not to the point where I'm getting cocky about it so I think I'm in a good spot. I'll have my weekly blog about all that tomorrow.
