Post-wedding/Off Keto (because I don’t wanna call living life a cheat) Weekend! D:

Okay, I didn’t tell you guys about this because I was 80% sure I’d stay on track for it, but my brother’s wedding was this weekend—I didn’t stay on Keto. Don’t get me wrong, I tried—but when you’re staying at a casino where the only keto option are eggs and a slice of ham/roast beef, it’s kinda hard to get those fat sources in. The first day I put butter on EVERYTHING and it really wasn’t enjoyable at all. The day of the wedding I decided just to give it a rest, it’s my brother’s wedding after all and he practically shoved me the cake. The day after I had pancakes before hopping on a plane—NO REGRETS THEY WERE THE BEST I’VE EVER HAD. I didn’t crazy break it, but it threw me out of ketosis. 

The thing is, the ENTIRE time I wasn’t eating keto I felt like crap. I mean, the grains were wrecking my stomach but also I was mentally tearing myself apart. That’s not right, not when I can just jump back in later. Not when my brother (ideally) will never be getting married again. So next big event I’m going to plan on breaking Keto, because sure I have to re-acclimate and lose water weight but life has to lived and maybe that’ll help.

I only gained 3 pounds water weight though! I was expecting more! Should be gone by Thursday or Friday since I’m hitting the low carb hard today (no more than 10g) and doing sprints later.

Here’s to jumping back in! Keep calm and keto on! :)

36 days Keto!!

I totally forgot to post this yesterday, my bad!

So I know I said I was only going to do it for a month but I FEEL AMAZING so I’m just going to keep it up for as long as I want! 

My current stats on Keto are:
Total weight lost: 14lbs! 

Inches lost: -2

I stalled for a good week in the middle but it’s coming off again. Wedding this weekend so hopefully that doesn’t set me back. Will update again next week!

Today is my rest day and I have never been SO HAPPY to have one!

I seriously feel like I’ve been hit by bus! Guess my workouts this last week were more intense than I thought haha

Keto weight in & updates tomorrow! :)

Weekly Sunday Runday! :D

My friends and I have started a Thing! We all get together on Sunday evenings at the lake and do a workout! Collin has dubbed it Sunday Runday! Runday is kind of a misnomer since we only run a mile and do a HIIT workout, but it sounds good haha.

Today’s workout:

Run 1/2 mile
7 rounds of:

Run 1/2 mile

I’m already planning next week! :D

"But it’s so fun to get back in shape. The progress is so tangible, and week by week you can feel the improvement. Celebrate the longest run of X months, the fastest mile, the healthiest day, etc. Some days will inevitably be better or worse than others, and you have to do all the little things with even more of an emphasis. Enjoy that a slow run is still a run, and a step, no matter how small, is still moving you towards the eventual goal."

Week 2 of Keto: Weigh-in and update!

Meant to post this yesterday but I was exhausted from work so today it is!

Weigh in: -1 pound this week! For -10 pounds total!

Not nearly as much as the first week but I expected a plateau after losing so much at first. I’ve also considered the idea that because myfitnesspal didn’t update my caloric needs until yesterday (at which point I finally lost 10 pounds), that might’ve slowed me down.

I’ve been in Ketosis non-stop, and I feel great. Sometimes I’ll get a headache if I don’t eat enough fat but that’s nothing a fat bomb can’t fix. No complaints overall, in fact me and my roommate are thinking of doing this for longer than the planned month! We’ll see! :)

Weigh in Wednesday! :)
One week of keto and I’m down NINE POUNDS!

It’s so weird to wake up every morning a pound lighter without a crazy calorie deficient. Even my roommate who is thinner than I am and didn’t workout at all this week is losing at this rate! I’m sure a lot of it is water so I’m eager to see what this next week holds!

So far eating keto has proven to be crazy easy though. I’m never hungry, can eat until I’m satiated and I just don’t want carbs or sweets at all. I love it!!


And I feel great!!! :D first official weigh in is Wednesday. Things are looking good!

Crashed on the ride today. :/ I was trying to pull a tight turn to catch back up with Collin but wind + gravel sent me sideways and I just couldn’t clip out fast enough. Have an abrasion to my shoulder and a headache from hitting my head too. :(

And my bike has a small scratch now!! TT-TT My first thought after seeing it was that I wished I’d unclipped faster so that I could’ve taken that scratch instead. Might be a sign I love my bike too much, but I’m not sure that’s possible haha
I DID IT! 3.5 hours and 50 miles later Collin and I are finishers! :D It was definitely an experience. Considering I’d only ever ridden 23 miles prior to this, exhausted isn’t even a good enough word to explain how I feel right now. I feel like jello. A giant person shaped blob of jello. But boy is it AMAZING!
Miles 1-35 went fast, road vibrations were horrible but I kept a 16-17 mph pace and it wasn’t really hot at all. Miles 35-50 though were torture! Especially the last 20 mile stretch, it was straight, slightly uphill and into a headwind. My pace seriously dropped to 10-11 mph and I could not get enough water. At one point Collin even rode up behind me and pushed me along with his hand which is saying something considering this was his third ride in months haha. There was also a brief spattering of him trying to teach me to draft, but I’m kind hopeless at that right now. :(
I think my main problems were that my feet kept going numb and my arms were killing me, other than that it was just fatigue near the end. I’m already planning my next one! Here’s to hoping I can talk my favorite curly haired cyclist into joining me this time too! :)
Training takeaway: Log more time in the saddle
And if you don’t already have plans to do HHH next year, you should make some. ;)

Crossfit 3.1: FRAN

I lost count of all my crossfit posts (again lol), so I’m restarting the count at 3.1 (3= reboot, 1=day).

First day: FRAN oyyyy haha


WOD: “Fran”


my time: 12:05

Considering I rode a hard 12 miles yesterday this was killing my quads, but it was fun :)

My first almost hour of riding! Our pace was actually 15mph but we didn’t pause the watch when we stopped a few times to check my friend’s tire pressure xP

Planning to pull a fast 5 tomorrow and 20 at a comfortable pace on Friday. Gonna slowly but surely work my way up to a 100k!
