Day 441 to 447 6/1 keto diet 1/15/2017 to 1/21/2017

Well as promised, I am doing a weekly update for my keto diet. As expected it has been extremely slow getting restarted on my keto diet. This week was very rough to say the least. I started out the week at 226 pounds and saw some weight loss through the rest of the week. Being back on a consistent diet is going to be difficult to re-establish. Through out the day, my diet was perfect. After, dinner I noticed myself snacking on saltines. This obviously means I did not go into keto at all this past week. Sunday started out pretty well, but then led to snacking on crackers. This is going to be extremely difficult for me to get back on. I, am thinking it will be at least another three weeks before I can get back on this diet and start seeing weight loss.

So, at the end of the week I was down to 219 pounds. This all changed after my carb loading day. I came home extremely hungry on Friday. Instead of going straight to the gym, I went straight to the kitchen. This was a bad idea, I ended up pigging out on pita chips and whatever else I could find in the kitchen. Saturday was not too bad, I actually made it to the gym and had great workout. I was there for almost two hours, lifting and doing cardio. The diet seemed to be okay for a saturday evening but the scale in the morning that day said different about my keto carb loading day.

The keto diet is going more challenging to get back on the diet than starting it over a year ago. With some little adjustments in eating again, I know I can succeed. These next couple weeks will prove to be extremely challenging for myself to get back on track.

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 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 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.

Day 372 6/1 keto diet 11/8/2016

Canyon Chicken Chili
It is the second day of me being back on the keto diet.  I am off to a slow start to say the least. This may take a few weeks to get back on the diet band wagon. It is difficult already just trying to cut calories for the keto diet. I really will have to start watching weekend carb loading days as well. Those are the days that I usually end up over eating instead of just eating enough carbs to replenish my system for the weekend. With all this being said, I have dropped a little bit of weight from yesterday but not much. I am still hoping by 2017 I am fully back on the diet and under 200 pounds finally. Only time will tell with this though.

218.2 keto

For breakfast I started out with three hard boiled eggs. I had a mid morning snack of one scoop of birthday cake whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. In the afternoon I had another snack of one scoop of birthday cake whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. After work I went relaxed and had dinner. Dinner was pork chops again. I did go over board again on eating almonds. I really need to gain myself control back for this diet to work.  Hopefully this time next week I can report of going back to the gym finally.

Day 321 to 369 6/1 keto diet 9/19/2016 to 11/5/2016

Well, first off it has been way to long for my keto blog. Secondly, I can not believe I passed a full year on the keto diet. Well at least most of the year I was dieting. I have tried for to get caught up with my blogging but just could not do it. So, since 9/19/2016 until now I have been on a keto break. It was nearly impossible to keep up with my blog, while traveling between two states. As of tomorrow 11/6/2016, I will be back on my keto diet or at least attempting to be.

These past couple weeks have really been a challenge. I have put on about seventeen pounds. My long term goal weight is still 180 pounds. Currently I am sitting at 219 pounds, so I still have quiet a little ways to go. I am thinking sometime in 2017 hopefully in late spring to early summer I will be able to get with five to ten pounds of my goal weight.

To add to everything I was training to run a half marathon before moving and agitated my knee so I have been nursing that. This caused me to be away from the gym for six weeks now. As of Monday 11/7, I will be returning to the gym, but will not be running for quiet awhile. I ended up getting a bakers cyst while running 7.3 miles one day. This is when your knee over lubricates itself and causes a sack to form behind your knee. I went to my doctor and he said, ” I was the youngest patient he had seen this in ever.” With this and moving some would understand why I have put on weight. Hopefully, by Monday, I will be fully ready to a least do some walking on an inclined treadmill. Weight training will be another story for a little while, as I will only be working upper body until spring.

Day 315 6/1 keto diet 9/13/2016

I am still continuing to struggle to update my keto blog post. I still cannot believe that my one year anniversary trip on the motorcycles has put my blog behind this far. I was on a road trip vacation at the end of August and here it is the beginning of October. I am still unable to catch up on my blog or just struggle immensely to make any head way on it at all. Today’s date is 10/1 and I am blogging about 9/13, this just shows how far behind I am.  This date continues to grow and change, I am hoping one of these days, I actually can catch up completely.

To start these days keep continuing to run together. The weeks and days on keto just seem to all flow together. This is especially true considering how far behind I am on blogging which is really annoying to myself.

209.2 keto

This day started off with three eggs scrambled like most days. I had a mid morning snack of one scoop of no bake cookie whey protein and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Lunch came around, I had 6 ounces of chicken and two 100 calorie packs of wholly guacamole. In the afternoon I had another snack of one scoop of no bake cookie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. After work, I went running for 36 minutes. I have been training for 1/2 marathon still. I have really started to enjoy running despite hating running while growing up. I came home for dinner had 8 ounces of baked cod and two 100 calorie packs of wholly guacamole. My total calories for today were 1741, 34 grams of carbs, 111 grams fat and 155 grams of protein.

Day 312 6/1 keto diet 9/10/2016

Well, I am slowly chipping away at getting caught up on my keto blog. Right now I am only down to ten days behind. This is ridiculous still, I am laughing about this. I am away for nine days and get this far behind. This is still from my motorcycle anniversary vacation.

Well as expected after a carb loading day, my weight is up. Remember, this is almost 100 percent water. When you re-introduce them into your system they make you hold extra water weight. It is like your cells are screaming and being filled back up. This is the down side to having the carbohydrate loading day. The carbohydrates are good though, they help repair any damaged tissue from the week of keto. The diet does a lot of weird things to your system, so of which need repair. If you remember there was some days I would wake up and be ten pounds over. This is determined by what types of carbs you are eating. I highly suggest staying away from processed foods.

210.8 keto

For carb intake, I tried to eat healthy. I started by eating some oatmeal to start. Today, I took my sister flying, but that will be a separate right up it self. For lunch I had a chicken cesar salad. After that I headed to the gym. I worked legs for about forty minutes and then did an hour of spinning. Doing spinning after working legs, really helps prevent soreness. It has helped me a lot on this. In the afternoon we had went to a chicken barbecue with my grandmother. I was quite astonished how big of a piece of chicken I got. They also gave us a bake potato, corn on the cob and ice cream. I was full to say the least after that.

Day 309 6/1 keto diet 9/7/2016

I can not believe how late I am posting my keto updates. The week of vacation back in August really threw me off. Now here I am thirteen days off from when this should of been of posted. I have a lot of catching up to do. My goal was to have been caught up two weeks ago but for now I will aim for this weekend. This day I am writing about was after a fully packed weekend during labor day. My weight to know suprise has not come down yet. This might be one of those weeks that I actual transgress and go backwards. I am still aiming for the range of 202- 215 which give me some leverage. This also prevents me from losing my cool and getting upset about gaining some weight. After my wife and I move, I can concentrate all the focus on keto diet.

209.8 keto

For breakfast I had three eggs scrambled. Eventually I will change this. I had mid morning snack of one scoop of no bake cookie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Lunch came around I had 6 ounces of baked chicken and two 100 calorie packs of wholly guacamole. In the afternoon I had another snack of one scoop of no bake cookie whey protein from tiger fitness and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil.  After work I went to gym and did a spin class for an hour. This to me was a great workout. It really helped stretch my legs out as well. After the gym  came home and had dinner. I had 8 ounces of swai and two 100 calorie packs of wholly guacamole. My total calories for today were 1643, 33 grams of carbs, 113 grams of fat and 138 grams of protein. I know I was with in my macro count for today.

Day 306 6/1 keto diet 9/4/2016

It is Sunday, and the beginning to another week of keto. When I start every morning, I usually have two cups of coffee. I am half awake when I wake up and this boost caffeine helps wake me. This is just the start to my day, but I most admit you need to limit caffeine intake. Too much caffeine can cause side effect. This is why I limit how much coffee I drink in the morning.

As expected today, I have put some more weight on from my carb loading. Today was another challenge, I had a family party this afternoon. I will reiterate again, that I am just trying to maintain my weight until we move. Even maintaining your weight can be challenging, especially with all the parties and weekend gathering I have been having.

211.6 keto

I honestly wish the weight above was 201 or 191. That would be ten or twenty pounds different then now. Those weights will come soon enough. It will take a while and be a few months away before I see 191 pounds. Today was a real challenge. We had a barbecue at my parents. There was pulled pork, chicken, ribs and some other snacks that are not really that good for keto diet. I did allow myself to enjoy the food today,

After we move I can commit fully to my keto diet. With out all these temptations, it should be considerable easier to start the focus back up. This is one of my keys on the keto diet is focus and dedication. The other thing that really helps on a keto diet is patience. This patience is for all diets not just keto. As for today, I am almost pretty sure that I was out of calorie range. Maybe I just enjoyed the food of the day too much.
