Recently, I jogged for the first time in three years. I know jogging isn’t the cool word but I was definitely not running. Maybe more. I’m starting the Couch to 10K program to train for a 10K in September. Those are words I thought would never come out of my mouth…ever! So how did I go from being 205 pounds (55 pounds overweight), no energy, fatigue, inflamed and really feeling terrible to feeling like I can actually run a 10K? Let me tell you, it was the keto diet.
I confess July has been a struggle for me for staying on my weight loss plan and staying in ketosis. The temptations while traveling are real! It’s no wonder our country is struggling with obesity when the ONLY thing you can eat in an airport shop if you are in keto is nuts. Even then that’s not the best choice. Of course, I found salads and carried my protein but it was eye-opening to see just how much crap we have as food choices every day. Now that I am home I have been struggling with getting back into ketosis and staying there. I have 20 pounds to go and I just want to get it done so I can enter a maintenance phase. But friends I am struggling with discipline right now. I want to admit the three lies I keep telling myself and see if you can relate!
