Today was my first day of my 10 week challenge officially along with doing a keto diet. I’m a little nervous about doing keto but I’m really hoping it helps me with losing weight and balancing out my hormones like I have read its suppose to do…I have also heard of people who were going through infertility get pregnant while doing keto! So I tried it today and I went over my carbs which I’m not too upset about it given the fact its my first day ever on it and its still lower than what my usual carb and sugar intake would have been usually. I also fasted for almost 19 hours today thanx to sleeping in 🙂
I have been having such bad back issues and now I have a tiny tiny scratch in my right eye which I have to do antibiotics drops couple of times a day for the next few days; so last thing I wanted to do was exercise but I had my husband along with my niece, nephew and sister in law join me in going for a walk around our neighborhood for 30 minutes. I still have to read my book for 15 minutes or more tonight before bed which I’m planning on doing after I’m done writing this blog post and I’ll officially be done with day 1…woohoo!
For my keto food today, I wanted to share what I ate.
I made myself a smoothie this morning consisting of strawberries and blueberries which I read just barely today you can only have 1/4 cup of and I obviously had added more than that. I also added my Alani nu protein powder along with chia seeds, almond milk and a teaspoon of peanut butter (which I also found out today that we’re not allowed to have on keto…sucks) oh and I also added a ton of spinach to my smoothie as well.
Then I made myself and my husband some lunch/dinner. I made scrambled eggs with spinach, turkey bacon, cherry tomatoes and avocado….it was delicious. I was planning on starting to fast around that time but then around 5:30 I started to get a big craving for something sweet so I ate one of my “ONE” protein bars; which I’m still not sure if its on to eat on keto or not…I’ll have to research it since it’s kinda of high in carbs I believe its 17 grams of carbs for the bar…
That was the last thing I had before I started fasting for the night…
Any recipes/tips/advice for doing Keto??
