Not having much to say these days. Not bingeing, but eating a handful of biscuits every morning with my midmorning pot of tea. Today I also had eggrolls this afternoon and became sick from them. Since when do eggroll have corn in them? Terrible stuff. I tried to eat a few bites of dinner and pushed it aside. Just not happening.
Longing to be back in ketosis and will be working on that pronto.
I took a couple of walks this week and was upset at how I could hardly breathe in the bitter cold and how it aggravated nearly every muscle in my body when trying to walk on the icy ground. I went to feed the birds this morning and I hurt by the time I got home and was wheezing. It was cold! I had to wear my rabbit fur earmuffs. Yeah, that cold.
I still need to work on our holiday meal plans, maybe I can get that done tomorrow. Husband said he wants it simple and wholesome, so it will probably be a roast beef for Christmas and lamb for New Years. We’ll see. We have set aside a few bottles of really excellent wine and we need a bottle of good whisky so we can have Irish coffee’s with cream in the evening closer to the holidays. If I can keep it here in this vein, I can keep it low carb.
I am back to feeling like a lead weight and tired all the time. Once wheat and sugar get back in my system, I feel the incredible heaviness over take me. My mood plummets and depression is knocking at the door.
I swore I would not do it, but jumped into my nutritional program to check on where I would be at with everything if I ate basically the same thing every day. Since we always eat the same thing for breakfast, I could also eat the same thing for lunch and let dinner be some sort of half meat and half veggie. This is still eating from the porringer, but I did measure and weigh the coffee and cream, and the wine to get the most accurate calorie counts. I used the carrot as the veggie counts, as that is the highest carb count in veggies that I eat. So I think for most days, I would be just under 1200 calories with a ketogenic 5% carbs, moderate 15% protein and high 70% fat intake. This is considered the optimal levels for a ketogenic diet for weight loss. The calories are the least important number, but I feel better when I stay under 1600 calories.
So the only change I would make from what I doing, is the consistent yogurt lunch. In a way, this might help me from giving food too much thought during the day and the pro-biotics would be a tremendous help. I found one that has live cultures in a local shop. Tastes good too.
So this is my plan starting tomorrow. See if I can get back to feeling good again. I am once again in the recovery period. Drat it all to hell. Grains and sugar be damned.
