I was SO hoping to be where I was last Saturday at 199.2. I was really hoping! I walked 3 miles last night and did 100 sit ups (on the abdominal machine) to give me that extra push to get there and then to see this morning that I actually gained .8 pounds and now at exactly 200 pounds again is so damn frustrating!
I am following the rules of the keto plan. I am exercising. I just keep wondering if it’s because I stopped drinking soda and am now getting those calories from food. Or if it was the last carb day last Sunday where I ate way too much. Or maybe I’m not eating enough. And I’m sure SOMEBODY will say I gained muscle. 🙄 I don’t have a choice but to keep going with this keto lifestyle since it was doctors orders. It’s just very frustrating!
I was very busy yesterday. I took Styled to get her hair done and then to the store to get her groceries. I came back to the house and had lunch and walked Amber. I went to the couples house and got their car inspected and went to the store for them. I also got paid for the past 2 weeks which is good because now I can pay my sons psychologist today.
Then I thought my mom’s car was leaking oil so I took it to the same place where I got the inspection but her car was bone dry underneath. I know there’s something in our driveway so I then took my car in and low and behold, Rose was leaking through the oil filter. They tightened it and cleaned it up, and now I have no leak! They didn’t charge me anything which was very nice (they do my oil changes so basically it was their fault anyway). So I was at the shop with 3 cars yesterday! Lol
Also, the owner of the shop wants to buy my dad’s car when we get the title. He has worked on my dad’s car forever (I mean, come on, the car IS a 2001!). So that’s taken care of as well. They are really good guys. I am not a real trusting person so if I say a mechanic is good, that’s pretty amazing.
Today, my son has a friend coming over so we are having him plus the psychologist and lunch and they want this little burger joint called Beck’s Prime. The boys can eat whatever, I will eat a cheeseburger with no bun. That sounds pretty good to me about now. My snack today will be celery with peanut butter. Yummy! Breakfast is chorizo and eggs. A friend of mine said I was making them backwards and when I showed him a picture, he said never mind. That looks great! He cooks the chorizo first and I cook the egg first. Lol I haven’t figured out what dinner is yet but I will!
I may also get coffee today, then again I might not. I got a cold brew yesterday and put a squirt of stevia in it and made it too sweet where I poured it out after only having half. I think I’m past the whole caffeine addiction since I’m not craving caffeine. Why can’t sugar be that easy? 3 days and I was done! Sugar, I STILL want a soda or something sweet like a donut (I mentioned donuts to my friends so much yesterday that they are probably thinking omg Jules shut up!). I have a plan though. I may be getting some of those little butterscotch hard candies and when I am craving sugar, have one. It’s 6 carbs for one of them and basically just sugar although I think it will really help. Any thoughts?
Well peeps, it’s 8am here in Texas. I’m going to get up and make my breakfast before this day gets started. See ya!
