Another 2 weeks have gone by and I’m pretty much a month into my journey! I’ll hopefully have more time to log these diary posts weekly, because my toddler just started at her new daycare, and so I’ll have some more time now while I’m still on maternity leave!
The last 2 weeks have been great, with the exception of a random dizzy spell last weekend. I started taking magnesium and potassium supplements, along with an iron supplement which I should ALWAYS be taking, but I kind of fell off the wagon with it after having my son. I’ve had some amazing new foods–I made some strawberry cheesecake fat bombs that were pretty spectacular, broccoli cheddar soup, and my husband keeps killing it with these amazing chicken wings he’s been making. I’m also getting more adventurous with trying foods I typically don’t reach for (like brussel sprouts). However, I still always gravitate to my easy favorites (bunless bacon cheeseburgers).
I started intermittent fasting, which I actually really love. I’m on a 16/8, and start my eating window at noon, and finish at 8. I used to get sick if I didn’t eat within 20 minutes of waking up, and now (just like the last time I did Keto), I’m not even hungry until the afternoon.
I’ve also gotten to the point where I don’t find diet soda appealing anymore. I never drank it a ton, but I would get the occasional diet coke when we’d be out to dinner, and I got one last weekend and it just didn’t even taste good to me!
So…the last 2 weeks I’ve lost one lb each week. I only just started the intermittent fasting, so I’m hoping that shows some better results next week, but honestly I’m super pleased. I lost a total of 9lbs in 4 weeks, and I’m really happy about it! I feel amazing, but I’m trying not to get discouraged by looking in the mirror and seeing what I see. I know I preach about loving yourself, loving your body for the babies it made you, etc. etc. But you know it’s so much easier to say than feel, right? I mean, I feel it myself, but I also still feel sad when I look in the mirror and see something that I don’t want to see. So I’m working on the emotional part of my weight loss as well. My husband says he’d love me no matter what size I was, which I’m so grateful for…but I need to love myself too! I can’t help it that I wish I was tinier, but if anything, it just makes me more motivated to keep on going!
Anyway, enough of that. Here are some pics of the foods I was eating this week! And don’t forget to check out my Keto Favorites on my Amazon Page. I only have things on this page that I currently use and love, and none of these items are in any way sponsored. I just really love EVERYTHING on my list!
