Marissa. 24. Tallahassee, FL. 5' 7". Using a ketogenic diet to help me become the person who I know I am inside and to help me learn to love my body.
As my semester is coming to a close, and I am almost a full 5 weeks on keto, it is time to start deciding what comes next.
Obviously I will continue to be on a ketogenic diet…but I want to start adding in exercise. I am planning to work on a Couch to 5k program, some HIIT strength training and yoga. There will also be normal walks/hikes/stretching, but those are the more intense exercises I plan on doing.
I made myself a cute little workout “schedule” and ordered a yoga DVD set, the 30 day shred DVD, and a new heart rate monitor. I went with the Polar FT7. I have an older FT4, but getting new fancy gadgets gets me motivated!
A few questions. I don’t plan to “carb up” because my exercise simply isn’t vigorous enough for that, but do my macros need to change at all on days I exercise?
Any tips for exercising while on keto? I’m going to make one of my rewards a nice pair of headphones, so that I can enjoy my music while working out.
I will make a blog about this tomorrow, but I wanted to get this out there!
