Thursday Weigh-In - August 9th - Week One Strict Keto
Yes! Down 2.6 lbs this week, back in the 160's and feeling a ton better mentally and physically!
Today is Day 6 on track and the insane hunger is finally quieting down, the carb cravings are slowly getting better and my headache/migraine is pretty much gone! Now I have to lose 11.8 lbs to get back to my lowest June weight but I know I can do it, it'll just take a couple of months.
I did decide to try out the Isopure protein powder one last time with the digestive enzymes but by the end of day 2 I felt so awful that I stopped the whole experiment.
Warning... TMI ahead...Not only was the bloating awful but the acid reflux, about an hour after having the shake, was so bad I could actually feel it coming up my throat and into my mouth :O on top of that my headache reached migraine proportions and I just felt miserable. I didn't have one yesterday and by late yesterday afternoon the headache was almost gone, the bloating went away overnight and no acid reflux at all!
So, that's it for the Isopure, which is a shame because it's delicious and provides a ton of protein, but it seems like every time I try it my reaction to it gets worse and worse so I'm sticking to the Atkins shakes for when I need a protein shake and working on getting real foods in for protein when I can.
I'm still nursing my back and that's improving too but definitely still twinging. This Sunday I have a NASM workshop in Boston so I want it to be better by then because there's a 90 minute group workout at the end but I spoke with NASM just in case and they said if my back gives me issues I can sit it out and still take notes or something.
I'm also thinking about doing 10,000 steps a day again but that will probably kick in next week after I'm home from Boston as well as returning to the gym!
I think that's all I have for now but I'm thrilled to be back on track again!!
