So I’m down 17 from the start of the year, and 27 from my top weight. I’m gonna keep going!
This conversation is indicative of every time I’ve ever tried to explain keto to someone
THIS. THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS
By the end of 2013 I’ll be in the best shape of my life…

I thought I would actually take time to write here, an actual entry for others to read. I’ve tried a lot of fad diets, and counting calories, and all this other stuff to lose weight. It’s hard. I don’t care who says what, no matter what you do it is going to be difficult, as you are changing the way you operate, a habit that is so ingrained into your psyche that it can’t be changed.
However I have to say that Keto is probably the most successful I’ve ever been. Mainly because I’ve just removed all the items that I am not supposed to eat, so there is no temptation. Yeah my coworkers bring in cupcakes, muffins, pizza and all this other tempting food, but I’ve managed to avoid most of it for a while now, which is a great thing, because now I can just eat my steak with extra butter with a happy grin on my face.
When I first weighed myself, I was 202.5, and as of this morning I’m 196.4, that’s a six pound difference in less than a week. And it’s still dropping. The pants that were too tight are starting to fit more comfortably, I’m not irritable as often, I don’t get snack cravings, and there isn’t a temptation. I’ll be adding workouts next week, to up my game, I hope to be down 40 pounds by this summer.
A note on Keto.
It’s fucking difficult. and when I say difficult, I mean FUCKING DIFFICULT. I had no idea how many foods contained so many carbs, and how it is fucking hard to go without. If you love your carbs, and can’t give them up, this may not be the thing for you. However if you happen to do ok with a heavy meat diet, look into it. My problem is sugar, and I needed to drop it anyways. Good luck my fitbuddies!

It’s been a while since I’ve made a journaling post here. But here we go.
I fell off the wagon. Sometime mid last year I just gave up, saying I’ll get back to it later, when I have more time. It frustrates me that I just made excuse after excuse. So I’ve picked it up again. I’m doing the c25k Program again, and am determined to follow through. I’m hoping to compete in at least 2 5k’s this year, and maybe I’ll managed to get through it all.
Today’s run was rough. The shins started screaming at me something fierce, so next time I’m gonna have to really make sure that I keep stretching a lot before hand. About three quarters of the way through I really was tempted to just walk the rest of the way, but I didn’t. In fact I got so angry at myself that I upped the pace a bit in my last segment. Fuck my leg hurts. SO worth it. Suck it brain, this betch be running.

Really, I think I just ran my breakfast away. But totally worth it. C25K you will not defeat me this time!

Good god everyone rants about the first three or four weeks, but I’m talking about week number one here.
When we’ve got our workout schedules and eating habits all in line.
Week one is hard, because you have high hopes, and you might push yourself too hard.
This time with more enthusiasm. I stopped doing c25k for a while because “it hurt” and my “ankle hurt”. Honestly I’m kind of ashamed at how quickly I quit, however this time? This time I’m making pain my bitch. I’m not letting other people bring me down because honestly what good can they do? I won’t hold myself up to others standards but my own, and if someone tells me I’m trying to hard, I’ll look at them and laugh. If it doesn’t hurt it’s not worth going for.
So come on you naysayers, I welcome the challenge.
