Lady Senie's List


Lady Senie

Recommended Posts

I tried to set up a Epic Quests list on this site, but a lot of the things I want to do are weekly tasks that are repeatable.  For example, I want to floss twice a week, but then the next week I want to do the same thing.  I'm not quite sure how to record that on this site short of retyping the same task over and over.  And maybe that's the way to go.  For now, I took all my quests and put them in Excel so that I could tally them appropriately.  I started Sunday and I've got 28 points so far.  So that's going to be my Quest this Challenge: I'm going to focus on the list of daily or weekly tasks I've made for myself while keeping up with my Keto (which I'm absolutely killing, BTW).  This is day 2 of my challenge and I'm doing quite well.  I've got laser-like focus right now.  Let's see how I am after 4-5 weeks ^_^

Day 2

 

I did great on day 1, wracked up 24 points!  And that's without doing the heavy chores like vacuuming or cleaning the bathrooms.  I plan to vacuum today; the floor is covered in dog hair.  I already did my strength training for the day and prepared my meals for the day.  It's been a productive day already!

Day 3

 

I actually vacuumed the living room today!  I did it before I went to work.  Also I am killing it with my keto journey! ^_^ It's been a good day.  I'll finish the vacuuming tomorrow and maybe start my laundry.

Day 4

 

I got a late start today, and then I made the mistake of going to the Halloween store to try on a costume.  The costume was the only plus size in the store and it still didn't fit me!  It didn't help that it was an 18.  I'm a 24, but I was hoping...  

 

Anyway, I'm 11 carbs in, and I have steaks coming with out of the sous vos machine.  Should be tasty!

I'm still ketoing like a boss.  25 Carbs instead of 24 but still on it!  The list isn't going to do itself, but I'm accomplishing it.  Day 16 fo keto and I'm KCKO!

Day 6

 

I took my son and dog on an hour long walk around the lake near our house today.  I was so proud of myself for doing it!  I'm under my carbs for the day even though I'm not hungry.  My weight has been going up instead of down the last two days but that's because of my period, so I'm going to push through my doldrums.

Day 7

 

I was feeling hungry today.  Again, period.  But that's just life.  I did my TreadClimber today and ate crab after work.  It's good meat and carb free to boot!  I had a fat bomb and am feeling much better now.  I'm tired, but that's okay.  Good day all around.  Stupid shark week...

Day 9

 

Yesterday was a hard one for me.  I was feeling snack-y and I'm sure I went over my Carbs, especially w/ Midnight Madness after my shift at work..  I had a bunless Fatburger, 1 slice and a half of Keto Pizza and half a serving of roasted almonds.  The good news is all my over was keto food, so I'm still in ketosis.  The bad news is... well, I did have at least 30 carbs yesterday...

 

But enough moping.  I cheated with keto food so I'm still on track.  I'll just have to kick extra keto butt today.  Starting with a good breakfast (4 carbs) and a good cup of coffee (4 carbs).  I was going to swim today, but I realized that I'm afraid to go by myself and Chris is making the rest of his Halloween costume right now.  Maybe next Tuesday since I have Tuesdays off.  I want to form the habit of swimming since we have a pool right there. I need to vacuum the stairs today.  And I'm off!

Day 10

 

AHH!  The scale isn't moving!! except up...  I don't get it, the bleeding has stopped, why aren't I back to losing weight again??

 

I need to be patient, I guess.But it's just... I'm working so hard!  I'm 21 days into keto, and I've been doing pretty good honestly, but it's frustrating that my weight is going up!  Stupid hormones...

 

 The list remains active and I'm working on it this Halloween.  I'm getting discouraged...

Don't lose hope! It can take a little while for your hormones to "restore factory settings" and get your body back to regular operations. I've had the same experience after the last couple of periods and I know it's easy to feel frustrated with non-linear progress. Don't forget to be proud of the progress you've made overall and the good things you're doing for yourself right now.

Thanks Lateral Planet!  I'm not giving up, just frustrated as heck.  I'm sure it'll all work out in the end.  I just have to Keep Calm and Keto On.

Day 11

 

It's day 21 of keto and I've developed a bit of an addiction to the r/keto board on reddit.  It's so nice to hear how keto has changed people's lives and made them the best version of themselves.  It's inspiring and motivating at the same time.  I don't think I'll be giving up the habit of perusing the boards anytime soon.

 

The list goes well, though I've been busy with Halloween stuff all day.  Tomorrow will be better.

Day 12

 

I'm on a roll!  Not only did I vacuum the second floor, I got the first floor done for the week.  I've started NaNoWriMo too.  I'm gonna spend the month editing Adonis.

 

I'm not slacking on the List either.  I'm over the hundred mark for two weeks in a row.  I have to start looking into a non-food reward for myself at the end of this challenge.  Especially if I keep up this momentum! ^_^

Day 13

 

It's surprising how little I accomplish without the List right in front of me.  My son high-jacked my computer Friday and I got very little done without the Excel spreadsheet there to remind me.  Plus, I got my hair done, which made me headachey and lazy.  I should have at least did my TreadCLimber walk - I didn't.

 

Oh well...  Today is another day! ^_^

Day 14

 

It's been one heck of a day.  Work was crazy, but I managed to keep up with my keto by eating lunch on my first break instead of my second like usual.  On top of that, My dinner chicken was already ready already when I got home.  I did my TreadClimber, my StrongLifts 5x5, and then dragged my son and dog out for a 25 minute walk in the sunshine!  I'm on a roll today ^_^

 

 I also managed to get a lot of things done on my List.  I'm currently over 200 points for the week!  It's pretty amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.

Day 15

 

I was so tired yesterday that I didn't log my progress, but I made some.  I worked and had a pretty decent shift at the hospital, did my ten minutes on the TreadClimber, and took my son to the movies!  Not a big day for the List, but I felt really good for all that I accomplished yesterday. 

 

I intend to work on my novel today during work if I can.  I also want to finish TWO bottles of water today if possible.  Better get started.

Day 16

 

I had a busy but good shift at work.  Then I did something that almost sabotaged my Keto progress.  I went to work with only 4 carbs in my system!  God, I was chewing my gum like a felon and I couldn't figure out why at first.  Once I figured it out, I called my hubby and had him bring me cheese and almonds.  I was so happy afterward.  Between the snacks and dinner, I was able to stay true to my Keto goals! 

 

The List goes well.  I worked on my book and everything!  Tomorrow I plan to do some vacuuming around my appointments.  I will see the weight loss clinic people tomorrow too and I'll have to explain about 'shark week'.  Not looking forward to that...

Day 17

 

I've been extremely active for the last two days.  I mean, between vacuuming the house in one sitting yesterday (usually takes 2-3 days to get it all done), and swimming for 2 hours with my family today, I've been on a roll!  Unfortunately, I got some bad news that led me to some bad eating decisions. 

 

I've been keto-snacking all day; I've only just NOW put a good amount of protein in me.  Too many Alcohol Sugars too.  It's been a rough day but I've been hanging in there!  I even got to the List today, and it's going pretty well if I do say so myself.

 

I plan to do much better tomorrow.  I'll prep tonight for work tomorrow and get this show on the road.  Just... give me tonight for my pity party, okay?

Day 18

 

My weight loss doctor is making me record my food now - as if I don't have enough to do!  Oh well, I'll make it happen.  Their version of keto is so much stricter than the standard version.  But the idea of safely and healthily losing 7- 10 pounds every two weeks is too tempting to pass up!  Not only that, but it does wonders for my self-esteem ^_^

 

And I must REALLY be feeling my oats because I signed up for a 6-week weight loss challenge on Reddit.  Nothing crazy; I just said I wanted to lose 10 pounds.  But the results should be awesome either way!!

 

The list goes well.  I think I might clean the bathrooms later today since this newfound energy of mine isn't going away.  Think about that.  Me... Me!  Miss 'I'm too tired to do xyz'.  I'm having trouble finding ways to expel all the extra energy I now have thanks to thirty days of keto!  What a rush :)

I didn't get to the bathrooms as I planned, but I spent the day eating clean and I got to my exercises!  I even did my StrongLifts 5x5! 

 

I'm prepping for tomorrow's meals and tomorrow is laundry day.  I've continued the List as well, though I didn't get as much done as I would have liked.

Day 20

 

I spent the day watching movies and doing laundry.  No bathrooms today.  Maybe tomorrow.  The list going well.  I'm over 200 points for the week!  And I just realized that I have completed week three of this challenge and I'm still going strong!  I'm so proud of myself!  Usually, I'm starting to lag by this time.

It's been a good two days for me and for the List!  I've been checking things off routinely.  Also, I FINISHED EDITING MY BOOK!!  That was my goal for NaNoWriMo, since it's about double the goal in size.  I'm so happy!  I need to find a way to publish it now.

Day 24

 

I'm tired.  I'm tired of working so hard with no end in sight.  Sorry... today I'm not feeling so great.  I had an episode of unspeakable hunger at work today and the only reason I didn't throw up was that I happened to have some almonds on hand.  That wasn't the best feeling.  

 

I'm keeping up with the List, but barely.  I need to refocus.  Or rather, I need to focus period.  I can do this.  I know I can.
