One Week of Keto: Thursday

Water: I got about 120 oz of water today!

Exercise: I took the day off. I was exhausted after working 18 hours the day before, and then another 9 hour day.

FOOOOOD: For lunch I had a burger, reduced sugar, and A1.

One Week of Keto: Wednesday

Water: I slacked a little on the water consumption today, but am not to worried about being dehydrated. I ended up drinking about 50 oz of water today, about 1/2 or 1/3 of what I normally drink. I just had a really busy day at work and didn’t have the opportunity to drink a lot of water.

Exercise: I normally take Wednesday’s off, since I normally work a 15 hour day. But this week I ran Physical Training laps with the boys I work with. I probably got 1 mile in today.

FOOOOOOD: Today was Thanksgiving dinner at the group home I work at, so for lunch I ate roast turkey, mixed veggies (peppers, onions, squash) and some bacon wrapped jalapenos. For dessert, I had a few tablespoons of cool whip.

For dinner, I ate 1/2 cucumber, ranch dressing, fat bombs, and an Atkin’s shake.

….and that, folks, was my Wednesday!

One Week of Keto: Tuesday

I know I’m posting this late. Monday through Thursday are rough times for me to get posts in, because I normally work 40 hours between 6:00 am on Monday and 11:00 pm on Thursday. However, this week, I worked a little more on Wednesday, giving me an 18 hour workday. Anyway, posting wasn’t as high of a priority as sleeping, so I decided to save my Tuesday and Wednesday posts until this morning.

Tuesday

Water: I was able to consume around 120 oz of water today. This was spread throughout the day starting at about 9 and ending at about 11.

Exercise: I had several errands to run, so my normal “running” was cut a little short. Rather than decide not to do anything at all, I went ahead and ran a mile and half in 18 minutes. Not the best cardio workout… but definitely better than nothing!

FOOOOOD:

For breakfast I ate some toffee fat bombs at about 11:00.

For lunch, I had a ham, lettuce, mayo and cheese wrap with a side of Fiesta Chicken.100_2367

 

Dinner was cucumbers and fat bombs, like the day before. 100_2354

 

I didn’t plan this into my day, but after work I did go out with some co-workers. I had an order of buffalo wings (which I only ate half of). This isn’t a regular thing that we do. However, before Keto, I probably would have considered this a “special occasion” and eaten whatever I wanted. Instead, I stuck to the guidelines of my diet and stayed on track!

One Week Of Keto: Monday

This is what a normal Monday looks like for me

5: 00 AM — Up for Work. Drink 32oz of water.

Work from 6:00 AM – 9:00 AM and then drink another 32 oz of water.

Work out at the Gym from 9:30-11:00. This was my routine today:

  • 30 minutes elliptical “cardio setting” 300 calories burned.
  • 30 minutes running at a 2.0 incline. 2.33 miles done 225 calories burned.
  • 100 crunches
  • 3 sets of 30 of the following: bicep curls, tricep curls, and push ups

All this… without food. Oh, and drink another 32oz water.

11:00-12:00 rest, water, food

  • Today I ate some toffee fat bombs at about 11:00
  • At about 11:45 I ate my lunch. Mashed Cauliflower with bacon. Ham, pepper jack, and mayo roll up. A side of Hot Chocolate.Image
  • Then I make dinner. Today it’s just 1/2 cucumber and 2 fat bombs. I’ll probably dip the cucumbers into some ranch.Image

I finish my day at work. I eat my dinner at about 5:00, then I stop eating until the next day. I keep pounding down the water to stay hydrated.

A Week in the Life of a Keto Girl

I’ve been slacking at a few things. One of which is more consistent blogging. Another is working out. Last week I was sick and allowed myself to take way too many days off of working out.

I’ve also had a lot of questions about Keto life that I’m sure a lot of people have.

In an attempt to become more consistent in doing the things I feel I need to do, I’m going to track my week via my blog. Hopefully that will help me have some accountability to get my butt to the gym, to share about my journey on keto, and to answer a lot of your questions.

We shall see how this goes. I’ll also put this in it’s own category “One Week of Keto” and tag it as such, too.
