Day 455 to 461 6/1 keto diet 1/29/2017 to 2/4/2017

I have finally had a successful week on keto again. This is the first time in awhile where I have seen some weight loss as well. It was a great week for one particular reason, that is, I started measuring food again. This is extremely important when it comes to a keto diet. Measuring food, is actually important for all diet regardless if it is a keto diet or not. Now, I did not see any drastic weight changes this week just small ones. I am just happy I am slowly getting back on track. The upcoming weeks will really tell if I am back on track. They will show if my weight starts dropping again if I am back on track.

During my Friday carb load, I tried something different. The only carbs, I added to the day were two scoops of carb 10 from MTS.  This put my total carb intake on that day to around 80 grams of carbs. I usually would eat a  bunch of potatoes or some other carbs for my carb loading. I am really trying to get my weight back down. On Saturday, I also watched my carb intake. For breakfast, I had two slices of ezkiel bread with a two tablespoons of peanut butter and 1/2 cup of oat meal with a scoop of protein. If I, continue to weight food in the upcoming weeks I should be able to see my weight starting to drop again drastically. Right now, on keto, I am aiming for 1900 calories a day due to the fact I have a physical job.

I also continued my weight lifting starting, Sunday, Monday, Friday and Saturday. The above, was my weight on Saturday which give me a total weigh loss for the week of just over two pounds. I will continue to carb load like I did this week.

Day 448 to 454 6/1 keto diet 1/22/2017 to 1/28/2017

This week on keto was unsuccessful to say the least. I have not adjusted yet back to the high fat low carb diet. This is proving more of a challenge then I originally thought. The week started out with me in the mid 220 again. This weight puts me up twenty pounds from 4 months ago. That weight was also before I heart my knee running. Remember, I was training to run a half marathon. I think, I have a plan for the upcoming week to finally get back on the keto diet. To start, I am going to re-adjust my calories back up to 1900. This is where I was at last year when I plateaued. My job was also a desk job at this time last year. The other thing I will do is absolutely stay away from snacking after dinner.

The photos above do show some progress, but I am still not where I want to be. I was hoping to be down around 185 to 195 pounds by now. My thought is, I will have to work harder and eat smarter. My carb loading did not help either as my weight went back up by six pounds. The adjustments, I am going to make for the upcoming week will really help me start losing weight again.The key to weight loss is calories in then calories out.  This week I also made it to the gym all but one day.  Exercise is vital to a keto diet. I am back to lifting weight Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. I am slowly getting back into the routine

I used to have before moving jobs and hurting my knee. The only thing really left, is to get the diet really back on track.In the next upcoming week should be interesting and challenging for myself. It will be huge, when I finally do get back on the diet and start losing weight again.

Day 404 6/1 keto diet 12/10/2016

Well, I guess the holidays are affecting my keto diet blog. I have really been slacking on keeping this blog update. It is the holiday time of the year and there is so much going on with getting ready for them.  To be honest, I have not really made much progress on weight loss. As of right now I think I am waiting until next year to be serious about the keto diet again. I think I deserved to have some fun this time of the year and enjoy eating. I mean who doesn’t enjoy eating way too much during the holidays. I think about it this way, if I can be under 225 starting January 1st, I should have no problem getting to my goal weight by June or even as early as May.  This would definitely be ideal for me, then I can concentrate on maintaining my weight.

For, breakfast I really loaded it up. I had eggs, bacon, sausage and some pepper jack cheese all mixed together. I also had oatmeal with brown sugar.  After that, I was lazy with using my fitness pal app and did not record anything. This really messes up anyone trying to diet like myself.

 

Day 403 6/1 keto diet 12/9/2016

I woke up this morning and my usual of weighing myself.  I am a little disappointed on this keto carb loading Friday. For some reason, I have put on a little bit of weight.  I think this was do to some snacking last night after dinner. As of right now, I am still just trying to maintain my weight or at least with in a certain weight range. This is just to get me through the holidays. After the Holidays, I will be 100 % committed to the keto diet again. This will give me less distractions to deal with as well.

For breakfast, I started out with three eggs hard boiled as usual.  I had a mid morning snack of one scoop banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. For  lunch I had six ounces of chicken thigh meat and one cup of guacamole. In the afternoon I had another snack one scoop banana cream pie whey protein. I also had two scoops of cookies and cream carb 10. Both of theses are from tiger fitness.  After work I went to the gym. I worked back and shoulders for about 1 hour. I am not fully back to my gym routine. This is still do to me nursing my knee injury from almost 3 months ago. I have been taking it easy. I used to be able to go into the gym for 90 minutes to two hours without any issues.

After the gym, we came  home and had dinner. We had pasta with some hot sausage and garlic bread. We also cooked appetizers of scallops wrapped in bacon.  This was an awesome dinner to say the least. This was also great for a carb loading keto day.  For dessert we had some low fat ice cream to end the meal.

Day 401 6/1 keto diet 12/7/2016

I woke up this morning and there is no change from yesterday for weight loss today.  This week on keto is unpredictable like most other weeks. I am assuming, I did not lose any weight because I was snacking last night on almonds.  That word, snacking, will definitely prevent me from reaching my goal weight if  I do not learn how to control it.  My other choice  would be to , just exercise more. This would help me burn more calories. The snacking would have less affect on me then. Realistically this is not the way to go. To, really lose weight, I should cut my caloriers and stay around 1600 as well as cutting the snacking out.

For breakfast, I had three hard boiled.  This, is still the easiest thing in the morning instead of cooking so early in the morning. I had a snack around 8 am of one scoop banana cream pie from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil.  A few hours later, I had lunch, which was six ounces of chicken thigh meat and one cup of guacamole. In the afternoon, I had another snack of one scoop banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Today, I was off from the gym and just went home to relax. For dinner, I had six ounces of pork tenderloin and a salad with ranch dressing.

On a keto diet or any diet it is  good to relax once in awhile. I am also still unsure on my knee so this is why I took off from the gym today as well. It is good to take a break from the gym or exercise and just relax. For me it is especially important to have my knee healed up properly so I do not re-injure it again so easily.

Day 399 6/1 keto diet 12/5/2016

I would say I am surprised about today and my keto diet but I would be lying. I new I had kept my calories extremely low all day Sunday. This effected the start of my work week as of this morning. Months ago, I had concentrated eating about 1200 calories on Sunday so that I would really be down by the end of the week. Eating this low of calories, seems to have some sort of jump start for a keto cycling diet. I think it really helped me out for a few months of doing that.

For breakfast this morning at 5am, I had three hard boiled eggs. Once again this is the easiest thing, I can cook in the morning. I had a mid morning snack of one scoop of banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. For lunch, I had six ounces of chicken thigh meat and one cup guacamole. In the afternoon, I had another snack of one scoop banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. After work I went to the gym and did a light leg workout. For dinner I had eight ounces of swai fish and a salad with ranch dressing.

To be honest attempting to diet or lose weight during the holidays is extremely difficult. I often wonder why people do it to themselves. Then, I look at myself and realize I am one of those individuals. The keto diet itself, is not for the weak. If you remember, you are cutting almost all carbohydrates out of your system, but luckily only for a short time. This can cause a lot of different psychological effects on people if they have not studied.  As for me, I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The light is my goal weight.

Day 398 6/1 keto diet 12/4/2016

Well I am really surprised about my keto diet today. Even though I ate a lot of food yesterday, I still managed to drop some weight as of this morning. As of right now, I have know idea how this is even possible with everything I ate yesterday. If, I look at what I ate at the buffet, it was mostly protein. I stayed clear away from any pasta or flour products on the buffet. This is probably what helped me as of this morning for weight loss. It is still truly shocking to myself, regardless of what I ate or did not eat.

Well today was different than almost all others when it comes to food. To be honest, I hardly ate anything at all compared to other keto days. I skipped breakfast this morning which is totally not normal for me at all. I had one scoop of banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. For dinner, I had about ten or twelve hot wings. We also had some srircha shrimp for dinner. So as you can see I really hardly ate anything for today. I also think I was under 1400 calories for the day. The other weird thing is that I am not hungry as of right now.

On another positive not regarding keto and weight loss, we made it to the gym again. We spent about seventy minutes at the gym today. I lifted, I worked chest, tricep and biceps. Once again, it really feels great to be back in the gym after so long. This could be the start of a positive week on keto. I am even thinking that I might see 209 lbs again by Friday. This would be a great and positive thing to see, but my self control for eating will be the ultimate decision.

Day 397 6/1 keto diet 12/3/2016

I am very upset with how my keto diet has gone this week. I have clearly been indulging too much and literally pigging out as well. This is just going to affect how long it take me to lose weight and get down to my goal weight. That goal weight really seems far away with these past couple months. To me at times, it is like it almost out of reach completely because of my lack of self control. I cannot reiterate how important it is to maintain and stay on a stable diet. This as we all know is all just in your mind to just do it.

Today was one messed up day when it comes to keto dieting. For breakfast I had three chocolate chip pancakes with syrup. This was just the start of a bad eating day. We also ordered some crepes made with nutella, bananas and cream cheese.  In the evening my wife and I walked around the mall then went to get dinner. We ended up at chineses, japanese and sushi buffet. Between these meals today and yesterdays cheese steak pizza, my diet was completely jacked up for the past forty eight hours. This time last year I had it figured out or at least I thought I had.

Day 396 6/1 keto diet 12/2/2016

Well as expected with this Friday on keto, I have not dropped any more weight. I am honestly no surprised at all, I have snacked just about every night after dinner. Some of this snacking involved eating whole cans of almonds. I really need to get my self control back so I can really concentrate on my goal weight for the new year. If I eliminate snacking I am pretty sure the weight will start coming off again. The other thing I really need to concentrate on is not over eating with the 24 hour carb load up, the friday to saturday time frame. I have been noticing myself over eating a lot on these days.

Today, I actually got up and enjoyed my breakfast. I cooked egg, proscutto, bacon, blue cheese and onions. I sauteed the onions in some butter, and cooked the meat separate then mixed the eggs and blue cheese in after everything else was cooked. Before going to the gym I drank one scoop of banana cream pie from tiger fitness and some C4 pre workout. We went to the gym, I worked back and shoulders. This workout, I new would hurt hours later but it just felt good to get into the gym again. I ended up lifting weight for about an hour. My knee is still acting a little weird, so I skipped cardio.

After the gym is where I completely killed the diet for the week. I came home and had four slices of cheese steak pizza. Then we went to go watch some fire works and ate again. We had garlic parmesan wings, sweet potato fries and popcorn shrimp. After that we came home had personal lemon pies. Then we watched a movie and popped popcorn with butter. So between the pizza and other food my diet die for for the week.

Day 395 6/1 keto diet 12/1/2016

I am nearing the end of another week on keto. I am surprised to see I have dropped a little bit more weight since yesterday. This weight loss is still despite, the fact that I was snacking on almonds or peanuts after dinner. Snacking is never a good thing this is especially true on diet more specifically a keto diet.  This just slows, your diet way down and causes you to take longer to reach your goals.  So the more self control you have, the better it is for dieting especially a keto diet. So keep in mind when it comes to snacking and dieting.

For breakfast, I had three hard boiled eggs again. At times, I wish I did not have to get up so early for work so I could actually cook my self breakfast. In the mid morning, I had a snack of one scoop of banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Lunch came around, I had chicken thighs and one cup of guacamole. In the afternoon I had another snack of one scoop banana cream pie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Today was an off day from the gym. We were both soar from the past two days.

I had talked about pushing yourself to hard. This is why we chose to take off today and just relax for the night. The other good thing is, I have three day weekend. For dinner, I had some chicken legs and a salad. This week was not the best week for keto. I am still struggling with the issue of snacking. I am not expecting anything else for weight loss when it come to tomorrow morning. I need to seriously chill out on all snacking, I do.
