I did my little video and progress picture thing this morning. Also, when I jumped on the scale I was 280lbs. Now I know majority of that was probably water weight, but I was still happy to see that after one day of switching things up. I haven’t eaten since around noon or one yesterday. I thought I would’ve been hungrier, but I guess I keep my fluids up enough to fight off the hunger. I’m trying to decide whether or not I want to cut out all soda and crystal light as well. I brought in some of the Costco meatballs for lunch to break my fast (haha breakfast at lunch…bad pun), so I hope I have enough shredded cheese in the fridge. I wish I had some mustard to go with this mayo jar I have at work. I like the mix of these two condiments. The flavor I mean. I need to do my pushups and squats because I’ve been slipping since last week. I was in the bed when I remembered to do them last night, but I was already pretty much down for the count. Speaking of down for the count, I notice that when I don’t eat or when I’m fasting, I can sleep forever. It took me a long time to actually wake up at my normal schedule this morning, and I fell asleep earlier than I usually do. I need to start going to sleep around 2100 instead. I made it all the way to 1230 before I had anything to eat. Maybe it was 1215, but it was pretty close. So I guess I’m good to go for the next 24 hours. I’m not hungry anymore after the meatballs, I guess I had to wait for them to start being digested or something. I feel like an idiot right now lol.
You have a really inconvenient schedule that doesn’t allow much time for anything else besides sleeping and working. I know, so do I. What’s that? You have all kinds of free time? Lucky you, but this might help you too.
So at Costco, they have these huge bags of meatballs that are 6 lbs each, if I’m not mistaken. They look like this at the one I frequent:
Some stores have them in a black and green bag. Same thing. The point is that these meatballs are one of the most delicious and versatile foods I have in my keto arsenal. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, whatever.
My favorite thing to do with the meatballs is to grab a regular-sized cereal bowl, nuke 10 of them in the microwave for about 3 minutes, and drizzle some cheese over the top. Question in the back? What kind of cheese? Oh ok, here’s a picture sir:
FINALLY, I like to take a couple spoonfuls of mayo, squirt a little mustard over the mayo, mix it up until it’s this pale yellow consistency, and devour the entire thing. Quick, delicious, AND it’ll keep you full for hours (those who are in keto know how long you stay satiated after a meal). I wish I had more time to actually cook, but you can’t go wrong with these meatballs. Did I mention they go great with scrambled cheese eggs in the morning??
Hey everybody, I apologize for not writing this sooner. I meant to put these out every Monday, but life happens right? Anyway? I’m currently at 240.4 lbs as of Sunday morning, so it could be less. Mind you now, when I first started writing this blog I was at 256. That’s 16 lbs just about in a month and a half, probably shorter. You see this keto stuff works, right? And I actually came out of ketosis for about a week and I was having a little trouble getting back in. So there you go.
