looking for ketosis

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Oh boy

This last week or so I have had the darndest time getting myself back into ketosis. I purposely upped my carb intake to shock my body (this has worked well in the past)

and now...ketosis seems to allude me. (okay let me be honest, I'm not trying as hard as I probably could)

So this is my plan. This week.. 3 more Xmas parties. I already have the menu's and when i say there is little that is low carb high fat friendly at two of these parties, there is not (and yes I know I can bring my own, but for one of them I will not because it's a small admin lunch and for this one it's just easier to take one for the team)

Next week however, Christmas week. Yeah. I'm low low LOW carb (I might even fat fast one of the days) just to get my body ready.

I'm still working out tho. Got the double inner thigh early morning charlie horse to last week to prove it! (lol) I honestly would have never thought that a "walk" and tone video could do so much in one workout to completely challenge muscles I did not even really know existed, but Leslie Sansone did it. I'm impressed.

I learned from her that you have to work out both sides of the muscle for balance. So if you work the front, you also work the back. I needed that information!

I'm up early for my cardio, but I honestly stopped with my kettlebell at work. Now that I've mentioned it, let me go pick it up and swing these hips around a lil bit.. My glutes are coming in (FINALLY) and I'm excited. Kettlebell, squats, lunges. All the time. Those I do. They are compound exercises working front AND back *cheese grin*

I hope everyone is having a Spark-tacular holiday season and getting geared up for a great 2016 as well!

Spark on

    Starting a complete DETOX myself today, lol....
    Thanksgiving and pre-Christmas junky foods, and carb laden 'side dishes' have finally started to haunt me in the form of acid reflux and headaches.

    Ketosis land...for both of us!!
    Kickin' off the new year with a bang!

    The New Year is coming and pretty soon everyone else will go on a diet and stop trying to wreck yours. Hang in there and sometimes a win means doing the least damage possible. emoticon

    No more glute exercise for me. Ever. Let's just say that I'm real good at building muscle and leave it at that. I hate going up a pants size because I exercised.

    The ketosis sounds neat. I want to check into that more. Do you have test strips? What got you started on that route?

    Best of luck with the parties!!

    This is definitely the worst time of year to be eating low carb! Good luck.
