Started the day with a good 2 mile walk. I love it when hubby goes with me - cuz it makes it more fun - and cuz he really needs to take off some weight! Not a lot - but he's carrying too much around his gut. Not attractive - not healthy. I'd like to see him take off about 20 pounds. But, he doesn't seem to be motivated to take it off. Right now he's making himself breakfast - pancakes with Mrs. Buttersworth syrup. Oh dear.......... what am I going to do with him.
I haven't stepped on the scale since Dec. 31st. I was 182. I've been on track and doing great since Jan. 1st. No sugar, no alcohol. I was feeling really bloated for most of the time, until yesterday. Today I'm feeling much better. I'm feeling smaller - and seem to look smaller in the mirror. My toosh is less rounded and more flat! Gotta love that. I've always had an "ample" back side and have always been ultra self-concious (sp?) of it! I will be happy to not have to worry about it when I'm at goal weight.
Haven't eated anything yet. Green Tea seems to be satisfying enough for now. We're making a seafood tonight. Hubby wants to do a stirfry, but I think the fish will all just crumble into tiny peices and make a mess. I'd rather make a chower. Maybe a stew? I'll have to do some recipe hunting. We've got shrimp, tuna, salmon and crab thawing. Have to find something yummy to do with it.
I need to cut back on the carbs a bit more. I'd like to keep them consistantly at or below 10%. If I average out the past 5 days I'm at 10% - but I'd like to keep them steadily at or under because I don't want to be kicked out ketosis. Not that I am even in it yet. I don't have any of the "syptoms" people have talked about. No tinny taste in my mouth, no frequent pee trips, no burst of energy (although steady consistant energy for sure!). I don't know. Maybe the couple times I've gone over 10% have thrown me out of ketosis. Going to read a bit more about it today.
Off to search for a recipe......... have a good day all!
