I pee'd on the stick and I am in moderate ketosis First time for me! Slight was the best I could get too while doing HFLC. That makes sense - that I'm now burning up my massive fat stores so my brain isn't saying "hey, eat something!" I was hungry this morning and downed 4 scrambled eggs.
Day 8 of whole30 and day 6 of Zero Carb. I'm doing great. Aside from not sleeping well last night I'm feeling pretty good. Got up this morning with a clear enough head to dive right into the bookwork for the house and boat shop. All bills paid, QuickBooks updated and deposit ready to go to the bank. We really overspent last month on our credit card so I'm forced to pay less on the mortgage than was planned. I expected it, but it still bugs me. I will try to make it up in time. We spent on the garden structure and the plants, plus all the flowers for the yard, plus we both got new shoes at the Merrels outlet store. I ordered some clothes online and we've been ordering from Melaleuca. It adds up fast!!! I've also got some regularly occurring bills on the credit card as well.
Doing the whole30 in tandem with the Zero Carb has made it all much easier. Knowing that I'm doing both to try to fix my gut issues just makes it all easier - not like I'm being deprived of anything. Aside from the rum and diet coke over the weekend I haven't had any cheats or slips. And really no terrible cravings either. I like the thought of my body being adapted to burning fat for fuel now. I've been 18 months on this WOE and I have finally arrived at the desired destination. If I have good results from this in the way of less tummy issues and weight loss I see no reason to end it. I think hubby is getting a little annoyed at my limited food list. But he understands why I'm doing this. He's supportive of my experiments to try to fix things. I sure wish I could get him to do a whole30 with me. Maybe if I have a really good drop in weight he'll see that its worth a try. ???? maybe?
better get moving............. have to be at work in about 45 minutes. And I haven't even showered yet. Good thing I'm quick!
