Summer Exercise

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!

I’ll start to tag these so no one else has to see them if the don’t want to with #seamus.

Today we were just playing in the yard. I got discouraged because I bought Seamus a large Kong with two kinds of treats and he is absolutely not interested at all. My next attempt will be to stuff it with…

Congrats! Having such a strong recall is AMAZING! Hat is definitely progress :)

It’s always such a good feeling when everyone has a nice clean tub…even though the feeling only last for about 5 minutes because AT LEAST one snake will defecate in it as soon as you put them back!

My pride and joy :)

Look at how tight the sleeves on my shirt were in the first picture, and how loose they are in the second! Also my back fat has gotten wayyyy smaller! Yay for noticing changes in my body :)

A Few Thoughts

  • I made bulletproof coffee this morning with a new brand of coconut oil that I bought from Sam’s club. My other coconut oil was refined and didn’t really have a smell or taste. This new brand smells like I am in Jamaica drinking a pina colada! I put a little bit of SF french vanilla syrup in it and it was sooooo good!
  • I am very distracted from my school work by all these cute baby snakes that are hatching out! 
  • I feel bad for Bandit because she has had to stay indoors a lot the past few days because it has been so rainy and blah.
  • I miss being able to spend time with my boyfriend, between school, work, and this stupid product, I’m almost never home.

I can’t stop looking at myself today… That sounds incredibly vain, but I very rarely feel this way. 

Just a quick break from bagging rabbit food.

Oh look, a selfie!

Today I weighed 282.2 pounds, (down 17.8 pounds total!) and these size 22 jeans that once gave me the world’s largest muffin top slid right on and there is minimal muffin top going on!

I can’t help but smile as I start my day. I look good. I feel good. I smell good (thanks to my expensive perfume that I decided to wear today as a treat).

Who cares if I am late to school? I feel great today and nothing is going to take that away from me.

God you so freakin’ pretty I just wanna take you home with me and sit you down and gossip and talk about dogs and cook you dinner, keto friendly, of course. SIGH.

BTW, ummm, can I have your address…for reasons…secret friend reasons?

If only Florida and Wisconsin were closer :(

Sure! I will send you an email :)

Good things have happened today!

3 babies have pipped
Found a 10 egg clutch laid
Found $20
Found this girl laying inverted

Also, last night we felt follicles while palpating our Fire that were the size of golf balls so she should ovulate any day now!

Exciting day for me today!!!
