Keto Check-in Week1

Keto check in, after one week.  Below are my stats:

Week One

10.5 pounds down
- 1/2 inch neck
- 3 inches bust (under)
- 1.5 inches arms
- 3.5 inches waist
- 1/2 inch hips- 1 inch thighs

How am I feeling?

This week hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be. Honestly, I thought I would miss potatoes really bad and really crave the sangria I was so happily to mindlessly have whenever I wanted to.  I didn't miss them at all, not even a craving.  I cooked pretty healthy, as I am still uncomfortable eating so much fat.  But from what I am learning from reading and listening to Podcasts, you can use your "fat burning" from your own body, not necessarily in your intake.  There is a balance and a formula for it.  The family was pretty much on board with everything I have made.  I feel bad for them though, they have gone through so many diets with me over the years, I know they look at food I've made and thing-oh wonder what is in this?  They all didn't love whole wheat pasta as much as me when I was doing Weight Watchers.  I mean, I am not trying to get ahead of myself or anything but this week has been easy, and I honestly think I found something that truly works for me.

I have been sharing it a little on social media.  I am sure my friends and family are rolling their eyes at me, as they have watched me struggle and watched me jump around from one diet/food plan, trying out being vegetarian, flexitarian-the works.  I know I'll get some eye rolls....and I am prepared for that I guess.  I can only tell them that I struggle with this, and I have found something that works for me.  And that I love them and hope they can support me even if they don't agree.

So the day I started KETO was on Thursday.  I had practiced some recipes the week before-and read all about it (or as much as I could) while trying to make the decision to what I was going to do.  I decided mid-week to just do it-so I didn't waste time with waiting until "Monday".  The very next day, Friday-was our 10 year anniversary.  Crap, so the second day on Keto I was going out to dinner.  I had read what a struggle that was for people.  Lucky for me, my husband picked a local steak joint we really love.  So I happily got a steak, salad and green beans.  I didn't partake in the amazing homemade bread they put on our table and I was okay with it.  I had a plan.....and this time I thought to myself-I am going to DO IT!

What I cooked this week?

Grilled Chicken, Asparagus and Stuffed Mushrooms
Taco Lettuce Cups
Fried Cabbage and Beef Sausage
Baked Cheesy Chicken and Steamed Broccoli
Made some fathead dough
Made some tortilla dough
Chaffles & Waffles
Biscuits and Gravy (yummy)
