Friday Morning Weigh In

Weight this morning: 203. That's down 3 pounds since Monday....nice!

I'm still not feeling 100% since my bout with a nasty stomach bug so my food is still sketchy. My calories for yesterday were low as I was hesitant to eat while at work since my insides still feel pretty unsettled. 

In the morning I had a cup of Bulletproof turmeric/ginger tea. It was yummy and soothing. I was so pleasantly surprised by how really yummy this is. And with the high fat low carb content it's totally satisfying.  I'll definitely be making this on a regular basis. 

2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1TBS unsalted grass fed butter 
1/2 Tsp turmeric powder
1 TBS grated fresh ginger
Dash of stevia

Heat the almond milk to almost boiling. Dump everything in the blender and blend until frothy. 
Pour into your favorite polka dot cup and enjoy.

When I got home I wasn't feeling much like cooking so after taking this little guy for a walk...

....I scrounged around in the fridge and found a piece of avocado, some cheese, and a baked turkey wing. I had the part of the wing that doesn't resemble a drumstick. It was simple and satisfying. For my treat I had some peanut butter mixed with heavy cream.

My blood sugar this morning is 97
Blood ketone level is .9

On the mend...

So yesterday, 1/20/2016, I was still feeling quite queasy and the thought of eating caused me to feel the nausea returning full force. So, I just soldiered through eating nothing until afternoon. I sipped on I tried to drink a Keto Chow shake in the afternoon and was able to drink about 1/3 of it. In the evening I had some scrambled eggs with cheese and avocado. I didn't track on MFP because I really didn't eat much. 
This morning my blood sugar is 96 and blood ketones are .3. 
I'll be tracking my intake today. I'm hoping to feel better enough to take a yoga class on Saturday.

Well, that was a rough start....

Within just a few hours of writing my last post I came down with some awful stomach thing. I spent the last two days in bed. (when I wasn't running to the bathroom) I sipped on chicken broth and was finally able to eat a few bites of scrambled egg last night. 
So nothing new or exciting to share on the healthy lifestyle front! I really have to go to work today so hopefully I'll start to feel some strength coming back soon.

Making a Fresh Start

Here I am, dusting off my old blog and ready for a new start. 
I've deleted all of my old stats from My Fitness Pal so today can be my day one. 
My weight is up to 206. It's time to get serious again or I will gain it ALL back. 

So here's the plan....
I'm following a low carb, whole foods type plan. I am also using Plexus Products to get healthy from the inside out. 
I'll be tracking on My Fitness Pal and sharing my menus, exercise, etc. here on the blog. 
I plan to start running again and taking some yoga classes. 
My weigh in day will be Friday morning and I'll report that here as well. 
I need the accountability of a blog/journal. I need to get myself back to a consistently healthy lifestyle. 

So, new start stats:
Weight: 206
Waist 39
Hips 48
Bust 43
Under Bust 36
Upper Arm 12
Thigh 26
Calf 16
