I Love Fresh, New Beginnings: In Other Words...
So, here's where things stand with keto...
I made it 7 days on track with no cheating so tonight we had take out pizza where I only ate the toppings off a meat lovers pizza, no crust! Sounds good right... but wait, there was a mistake made :/
When I entered all my nutrient information I had the wrong size pizza in there and once dinner was done (or mostly done because it was too much food for me) I took a look at MyFitnessPal and realized my mistake. I had entered a much, much smaller pizza than what I had and once I had the correct size in there I realized that I was not only way over on my calories and especially my fat intake but also my carb intake.
Now, a regular person would say, "hey, not my fault I miscalculated, let's move on," but, I'm not a regular person when it comes to food and I know for a fact that if I were to do that my rarely resting brain would start insisting that an extra piece of this or an extra bite of that wouldn't be so "bad" because I already did it once and let myself get away with it. Yes, I have issues and yes, I have a therapist lol (which I was actually supposed to call weeks ago but I digress).
So, knowing how my brain operates and how that little, inner voice (which adores sugar and carbs) can convince me of almost anything, I'm starting tomorrow all over with Day One again.
Is that a little excessive? Yes, some might say it is but I know what works for me and that does. But, hey, look at it this way, I went a whole seven days on track with food and that's huge for me lately so I just need to get right back to it and watch out for the mistakes in the future!
I also made the decision to restart my workout tomorrow from Push Day A for a couple of reasons:
1) I want to log a much more detailed account of my exercise with more photos, more explanations and more discussion on what I'm doing and how I'm doing it.
2) I want to add 2-3 second holds back into my exercises (at my trainers suggestion from quite a while back) and I'd like to start that from the beginning.
3) I have some better ideas and plans for my home workouts so I'd like to incorporate those but from Day A instead of Day C.
4) I have a much, much better organized "visual" plan that I'm currently printing that I want to use in the place of the one I have been using.
So, basically, tomorrow is Day One again but just the thought of Day One makes me happy and excited so I'm going with it.
This is in no way a punishment for a mistake or anything like that, it's just a new start to the whole thing!
I'll be doing a blog post later this week on my homemade home workout so keep an eye out for that!
