    Week One Day Five: Carbs: 44g - too high Get up: 1pt shortly after 6 Alcohol: much wine. Sweeteners: none Ehhhh not a great day. But not terrible. I STILL didn't eat fries, so that's a win [emoji14] Hubs and I definitely indulged in a wine and vidya games night, which was delightfully stress relieving. The alcohol definitely contributed to the carb overage, but it was mostly from eating too much cauliflower and green beans and bell pepper, so I'm not overly worried about it. Today is all about domestic rangering and I'm getting my hair cut! It's been like a year, so that's too long... And it's making me insane right now, it looks scraggly and terrible up or down, no matter what I do with it. So chop chop chop time! We're supposedly having a disc golf tournament tomorrow, but I REALLY do not want to play in the snow. I hate it. I am seriously considering just helping out with the part I've already agreed to help out with, then bailing. Or maybe I'll make a giant pot of chili and go sell it to the poor suckers freezing their butts off out there haha

    Week One Day Three: Carbs: over. French fries happened. Wake up: 1 pt for shortly after 6 Alcohol: 1 glass of wine Sweeteners: none Week One Day Four: Carbs: over, I think. But avoided fries. Wake up: so slept in! I was exhausted after Wednesday. Alcohol: several glasses of wine Sweeteners: none I am just feeling a generally bleh - I was craving ALL the starches yesterday, and tried to make up for it by making keto comfort food. I think this was mostly successful - I made sausage dip-stuffed peppers and cauliflower mash. Between that, the wine, the pizza soup for lunch and some dark chocolate I was definitely over on carbs and calories, but it could have been worse.

    I'm pretty used to it, I don't terribly mind. But it's too much talking, my throat is going to be raw! And presenting the same thing over and over is firstly boring, and also you tend to forget what you've already said or not haha I just want today to be over. And then I still have a 2+hr drive home, and I'll need to wash the car when I get back and just damn, it's a long day! /endwhining

    I'm always astonished by what my cat will eat... He thinks anything that comes from a can must be for him, so sometimes I'm like "look, it's beans (or green chillies or tomatoes), you don't even want it!" .. .. .. But he totally does want it. I bet he'd flip for doughnuts!

    Breaking the negative cycle is a way bigger win than getting into it in the first place is a loss... If that makes sense?! A few poor decisions won't really matter in the long run, it's just not letting them become your baseline (this is something I struggle with all the time, so I know it to be true!) Anyways, the moral of the story is that I'm hella proud of you.

    I've updated my original post to include mah goals! Let the thing doing commence. Edit to add: I'm going to make my wakeup goal similar to my carbs goal, in that I'll get 2 points for getting up before 6, and 1 for getting up before 615, just to differentiate between barely not making my goal and actually sleeping well past when I want to.

    I am not looking forward to today (4 presentations in 7 hrs is too many!) but I actually had a pretty nice stay at the hotel. I got a room with a kitchenette, since it was only slightly more expensive and I figured I miiiight want to use it (totally did not)... Turned out to be a full out suite! Vaulted ceilings, separate bedroom, 2 TVs and enough room to do cartwheels if I wanted to. I went to bed ridiculously early and had I've of those sleeps where I felt like I'd been sleeping for ever, and must have missed my alarm, then check my clock and it's been like 30 mins. I love that. Despite the frequent wakeups, I feel more well rested that I have in a while Dinner was Caprese salad, sausage and goat cheese stuffed portobello and a couple meatballs. I diiid go out and get some snacks after dinner last night, but I made decent choices, at least. Dark chocolate (2 squares), mixed nuts and some salami. Goals: (which I have still not fully articulated) Food: decent, although I estimate carbs to be around 35g. Hard with restaurant food to say for sure. No workout. Wake up: I was up around 5:45. Any time before 6 is solid. No alcohol. No artificial sweeteners.

    That's fair, too many plans! No intentions of moving right now though. I'm on a leave of absence from my previous position at the college, so I'll go back to that when this contract (mat leave coverage) ends. This is a good thing. My old job was much less stressful... And only pays a little less. However! I will miss having a meal allowance while traveling... Damn I ate well tonight!

    I just feel like I've been "trying to hang in there" for so long now... I can't go on like this forever! And I know it won't be forever, but still, too long. Thank you though - I appreciate the empathy! I guess I shouldn't complain - no bugs!

    I'm just trying to catch up with everyone, so HI! The hike sounds like it will be a lot of fun!

    Maigs: Hmm...This Looks Familiar

    Two weeks left! Congrats! If you're genuinely not hungry, I wouldn't worry too much about the low cals - it will ultimately balance out.

    Remember that progress is more important than perfection! You may have plans for the weekend, but you have the opportunity to be proud of your choices today and tomorrow and Thursday... And for every non-planned outing meal You got this. And you've been doing great with just drinking tea and water!

    Week One Day One: (Reporting progress would be easier if I actually set some goals, eh? I'll get on that tonight ) Kettlebells: happened! Oh man, I am so weak though. I've got a lot of work to do to get back to where I was. But I went. Food: not bad overall. Carbs under 30g. Cals a little high, but I think I'm going to not worry too much about that, and just focus on carbs, and the rest should fall in line. My bigger problem is not staying keto, so that's the real goal here. No artificial sweeteners. No alcohol. I think I'm going to set a "getting up on weekdays" goal. I didn't note the exact time yesterday, but it was later than I'd prefer. I'm traveling for work today, and staying out of town overnight. I'm super excited about the Italian place I get to grab food from for supper! I've been before and it has some awesome low carb appetizers. In other news, my contact at work is being extended until the end of November I'm not happy, but I felt like refusing would burn some serious bridges that I don't want to burn. Blah. On the plus side, I'm going to earn a bunch of extra lieu time, so I'll get to take a mini vacation at the end of it all.
