Epic Fail to Amazing Progression

If you stick to something and commit to it, then the results in the end will be outstanding. Goals can’t be achieved without sacrifice; sacrifice is exactly what I did! Have you sacrificed a lot to achieve your weight goals?

Week Recap 

So, during the week of recovery from the epic fail on last week. I got into ketosis on Thursday 01/12/2017, that morning I was supper excited after taking the test. I stuck to the meal plan that I set, except for lunch one afternoon with my partner, it was so hilarious a picture should have been taken. I took my food scale with me to Panda Express, I ordered the teriyaki chicken with brown rice. Now before you drop your jaw; I did not eat the rice I gave it to my partner because he wanted it. I did however, weigh my teriyaki chicken to make sure my portion was an okay portion, I must say for it being 4 oz. it was fulfilling.

During the week, I found myself feeling better and having more energy as the week ended. I had cravings for the normal snack, but I did not give in to it. Restarting week 1 was great to be honest, I had minimal distractions to take my focus away from my goal. I kept a food log that I created, on my food log it allowed me to track my fluid intake and my meals. I will admit about the second day into the week I experienced all the symptoms research mentioned would occur during such a drastic change in your diet.

At the end of the week I was super excited. I am now able to add vegetables to my meals and my all-time favorite maple and brown sugar oatmeal! When I tell people, I am excited to eat my vegetables, you should see the looks I get they are hilarious. So, I will say all in all this week was a very good week, now I can move forward with week 2 of my lovely journey!

Plan Difficulty 

I would say the most difficult thing for me this week would have to be the temptations of the house. Now, I did say last week the family is on board to support me and understand my reasoning’s of eating differently from them. However, the family still had the normal things. I was surrounded by such temptations I drove me to the point where I was considering to quit this plan.

Obviously, I did not quit. However, that urge to quit and me being able to overcome it showed me that I can do this I must do this! I did just that and am beyond happy with myself for completing this week with no setbacks.

Plan Of Action

For this new week, I can introduce vegetables into my diet. Like I mentioned I am super excited to get this week started. I am still going to have to consume the 700 to 900 calories of protein while introducing 2 servings of a salad or vegetables. A few friends who are into nutrition stated my vegetables can be raw or cooked, because I love to cook, I am sure I will be cooking my vegetables.
