So far this week is starting off somewhat good. It is still hard to believe I have had this blog about a ketogenic diet for this long. I hope eventually I reach my goal weight of 180 pounds. The fact that over a year now I have been dealing with a knee injury. I think if this injury would not have happened I would have been further along on my ketogenic diet. It really has been a lot of ups and downs. My short-term goal as of right now is to get down to 210 pounds by New Years. This is not a drastic amount of weight but really sets me up for 2018. I think 2018 will be the year I see my goal weight or lower. For now, I aiming to lose 10-15 pounds by the new year. This is a very attainable goal for myself. Getting the right mindset is the key.
To start off the day I had three eggs with three slices of muenster cheese. I had a snack of one scoop of whey protein and one tablespoon of olive oil. For lunch, I had 6 ounces of chicken and 8 tablespoons of guacamole. In the afternoon I had another protein shake with a tablespoon of olive oil. The afternoon is where the day went south for me. We had a potluck and I think the willpower was not there for me today. I caved in and ate corn muffin. Well, maybe it was two corn muffins. After that, I wondered how the rest of my week would go. Like I said before months ago the ketogenic diet is all about having the correct mindset and counting calories. It is just taking me a little longer this time to get into that mindset. I think willpower is the hardest thing during dieting.
