Taking a break.

I’m way too frustrated and my life is way too crazy to get my shit together, so I’m gonna take another little Tumblr break. Instead of being a supportive anchor, Tumblr is more like a reminder that I’m not losing fat or making gains, and that sucks.

Grumpy cat reluctantly keeps me company while I wait to go on a first date AND wait for a company to tell me if I got the job.
I swear I’m so nervous I’m going to puke.

100 Day Keto Challenge: Day 9

9. Tell us about your favorite bit of self-care. It could be a form of exercise, a favorite bathroom routine, or place to shop or eat or something completely different!

Definitely without a doubt spa day at my own house. I’ll do a face mask and hair mask, soak in the tub with a glass of wine, and then trim, file, shape and paint my nails when they’re dry enough (don’t file soft post-tub nails!). It happens when I have a few hours to myself and nothing to do, or can afford to sacrifice some hours to the cause.

100 Day Keto Challenge

8. Think back to before you started keto when you first read or heard about low carb diets. Were you initially intrigued? Did you think they were crazy? Dangerous? What changed your mind?

I definitely thought that severely limiting carbs was dangerous. I remember saying, “Any diet that causes you to get sick [keto flu] can’t be good for you.” Of course, some research and some mandatory diet changes later (thanks PCOS) I realized that no one was severely suffering on keto and a lot of people improved their symptoms, so I’d give it a try. Of course, that first month was great. Difficult, but great. I wish I could go back to that level of dedication.

Can we agree that it’s okay to be healthy at any size, not just be ‘any size’?

Getting sick of seeing things that are always like, “You’re beautiful, eat whatever you want!” No. No. No. Love your body at any size, don’t judge people at any size, but for the love of all things good, be healthy. You are doing your body a disservice by being overweight (I don’t mean by a little, you know what I mean) - I know, because I am overweight and I fight every day to be healthy. It aggravates my PCOS, it causes unnecessary strain on my joints when I exercise and it puts me at risk for so many things.

100 Day Keto Challenge: Day 7

7. You’re one week in! Today, tell us about something you did in the last week that made you feel like you could conquer the world. Reflect on this post the next time you feel a binge coming on.

Well, over the last week I think I had a fairly healthy relationship with food, and I actually ran almost every night. So really, I think it was a successful week even though I didn’t eat keto as strictly as I would have liked. Whether or not I end up losing fat remains to be seen though.

Shin Splints continue to plague my night run.

BOO. But I’m working on intervals to work back up to a 5k. At this rate I can’t even complete Day 1 of C25K without pain, so I’d welcome suggestions!

100 Day Keto Challenge: Day 5

5. Today tell us about your favorite low carb snacks. Include pictures or a recipe if you have one.

Hm. I guess my favorite snack is beef jerky. Maybe olives, too? Recently the low-carb doritos and guac were great too, but I sort of ate too many and don’t want any more for a while. Pork Rinds are great for filling up, too. Strawberries are good! Chocolate is also good.
