Well, I have made it to another Friday on the ketogenic diet. This week has been quite a learning experience, to say the least. I have realized I need to be more committed if I going to reach my goal. My short-term goal is to get down to 210 by new years. My long-term goal is to get down to 180 pounds. I have had setbacks due to knee problems. The ketogenic diet is still taking some adjusting to get back on it. I am still continuing with physical therapy of my knee. I really need to get the weight down to help prevent near future knee surgery. After the knee surgery, my whole thought process changed. Considering things were a lot worse than they initially thought. My concentration immediately went back to weight loss after the surgery. With this past week, I really need to wake up and get on board.
Today is my carb loading day if it was a real week on the ketogenic diet. Since I had lack of self-control, I can not really count it as a carb loading day. I started with three egg and 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 and 8 tablespoons of guacamole. In the afternoon I had a snack of one scoop of whey protein and two scoops of carb 10. I actually tried today with not overeating for dinner. I think I just had the leftover pork and sauerkraut. Then I went to the gym and a 1000 rep chest workout. Once again I need to talk about Body Spartan . I continue to surprise myself trying their workouts. These workouts really push your limits. For me, they have been really waking my muscles up.
