Today is day three on Keto for me. So I thought I better start journaling . . .
So far, so good. I haven't felt any brain fog or hunger. I've decided not step on the scale for a few more days. We'll see how that goes. But first, some background . . .
About 6 years ago (it's easier to remember how much time has passed, since that's when I got married), I was approximately 25%bf at 170lbs (ht: 5'6"). I lifted and ran regularly. And while I certainly could have a lost a few pounds, I was happy and healthy. Flash forward to now: 250lbs, 52% body fat. Yikes! A lot happened in those 6 six and my healthy lifestyle was completely derailed. Needless to say, my body is unhappy and doesn't function the way I want it to. I was in a bit of denial because I hadn't had any overt health problems: cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar - All normal. I had all of those indicators rechecked a few weeks ago and I've gone from normal to high. It's time to make a change.
My main goal is to lose bodyfat (18% is my ideal). I would like to build my upper body strength and would be happy to put on some muscle, but the fat loss is certainly my prime objective. I have a desk job that doesn't allow me a whole lot of freedom, so I've got to commit to being more active in the evenings and weekends.
This is the plan for this first week. And thus far, it's been going well.
