With the holidays over, I also went back on the keto diet almost as a second thought.

 

I finished my last bag of tortilla chips and salsa, and my fridge just happened to be filled with keto friendly foods, so I told myself "Why the hell not?"

 

So since Saturday, and for the next week, my menu is a mix of aged cheddar cheese; a whole turkey; home made vegetable soup (with fresh turkey stock); spaghetti squash; shredded cabbage salad and sauerkraut. Add olive oil and butter when required.

 

I forgot how much pee it produces in the first day or two. Couldn't sleep properly because of that.

I figured out my Sparkpeople account and started logging food.  Looking at the totals at the end of the day, yeah I can see what I should not be eating.  This week will be learning, and willpower.  I get hungry looking at food and logging food, and reading about food. Tomorrow will be better.

Now that the holiday treats have been eaten, I started logging food yesterday on my Weight Watchers phone app again.  I don’t intend to actually weigh in for a couple of weeks yet...

Fun challenge me and some friends are doing.. 100 squats a day (in total) for a month. Measure your leg before and after (pictures optional) to see how simple regularity can change your physique. some days are 2 sets of 50, some are more of fewer, it's fun.

That sounds like a really good idea!

Weighed myself last week and apparently my scale wasn't sitting on the floor properly. I'm 15 lbs more than my original weigh in the week before. I know I didn't gain that much in a week. 

 

I've started using an app I've used off and on for years but have never stick with it. I'm trying this time, really hard. So far of the two days I'm one day over my calorie limit but was under yesterday. I really need to get out and exercise but I haven't gotten things cleaned up enough to do the Wii fit again.

Still tracking food. It's been eye opening. Going to work on eliminating some of the worst offenders from our meal plans.  I am not sure yet what a good daily calorie count for me will be. I am also working on giving up the sugary treats.

Congrats to everyone working hard and trying to be a better you! :D

 

We started our 3rd whole 30 on the 3rd. It makes me feel so much better!! I definitely recommend it if you have the time to cook every SINGLE thing you eat for the next 30 days. :)

 

2 weeks in, and so far I'm down 7 lbs, and a total of 6 inches in bust/waist/hips. I plan on introducing an exercise regimen in the next week or two to really get it going. Has anyone tried the PiYo program? I need something I can do in the house during nap time every day.
