Ketogenic Diet

Hello hello all! I apologize that I have not been blogging like I need to. I got so caught up with daily life that blogging just wasn't much of an importance for me. However, I am going to try and put out a blog post once a week from now on. Whether it be blogging about my journey, recipes, articles, etc....

So, I had been doing so well for a while and I had finally hit my goal of 175 lbs back in December. However, I have been stress eating for the past 6 weeks due to work and well, some of the weight has definitely crept back onto my body. Good thing is I know exactly why and what I need to do to get rid of it.

So, I decided that, for the month of February I will change it up and try out Ketogenic Diet. High fat, high protein, low card is the name of the game. It's suppose to help you shred fat, and well, I want to shed another 20-30 lbs so here goes nothing!

While I am still going to keep to Paleo as much as I can while doing this, because I love that diet so much, I am leaning a little more towards a Primal diet because I will be incorporating dairy back into the mix, not too much of it though. Which I am excited to eat cheese again!

So, starting from square one and here are my starting points:

Weight: 192.7 lbs

-Waist: 36 in
- Under Bust: 36 in
- Upper Left and Right Arms: 13 in
- Lower Left and Right Arms: 10 in
- Left and Right Thigh: 22 1/2 in
- Left and Right Calf: 16 1/2 in

Not happy to post these pics, but I think it'll motivate my butt enough to get with it. No more stress eating and getting back on track to my new goals! New Year new obstacles to conquer and I am ready to tackle whatever comes my way!

I will definitely be keeping up with my 5 day fasting morning workouts, which are about an hour and a half each day (lifting and cardio), walking 30 mins during lunch time 3-4x a week and on Saturdays and Sundays, I will do something active, whether it be running outside, working out at the gym and cycling. There will be no rest days, unless I am completely exhausted.
