My Journey to a Healthy Me, Day 15

Today was a fun day. We celebrated my kids birthdays today and the San Jose Barracuda game.

As a surprise, my wife was able to get her and my youngest son down on the Barracuda bench to watch the warm up.

His friend was down there as well, and they got to interact with a couple of the players.

Once the game was over, I came home to get ready for bowling. I started off ok, but the last game was no good. My how team struggled the last game. I bowled 201, 200, 137. The last game I couldn’t seem to strike, and splits really killed it. Ahh well, that is bowling sometimes.

Weekly recap

It seems that this week, is stall week for me on the weight loss front. Though, I was prepared for it. I had looked up some information from other people doing keto. One of the things mentioned was the stall. Usually you drop a good amount of weight, then the body adapts. You get into a bit of a stall. The most important thing though, is to just keep going.

353.8 today. Gained 1.6 pounds this week. Still down from my start of 367.6. I’m not freaking out about it. Just a number for me to track. I’m hoping the downward trend picks back up this coming week.

Food:

1/08 – 1507 Calories, 18 net carbs
1/09 – 1451 Calories, 15 net carbs
1/10 – 1594 Calories, 15 net carbs
1/11 – 1690 Calories, 17 net carbs
1/12 – 1399 Calories, 14 net carbs
1/13 – 1456 Calories, 17 net carbs
1/14 – 1438 Calories, 18 net carbs

I had some challenges with food this week. Some random impulses. Wanted pizza one day when the wife brought it home. Still, kept it in check. I did keep to under 20 net carbs each day. I just need to continue this on, and the results will come.

Exercise:

1/08 – None
1/09 – 2.78 miles
1/10 – None
1/11 – None
1/12 – None
1/13 – Technically didn’t go out for a walk. I did however walk intentionally around the long way to Costco after my hair cut.
1/14 – None

Not so hot here. I was under my fitbit steps from last week. Things were busy, and my mood wasn’t the greatest a few days. I’m not too worried here as my mood has been much better, and hopefully things won’t be so busy. Will look to improve this in the coming week.

Sleep:

I have done pretty well here. One night was a bit later, so I could finish reading a chapter in my book. One night I didn’t read, and stayed on the computer late. The last couple of days, I have felt like I am sleeping better overall. Still have too much awake time I think.

Low Blood Sugar

My bloodsugars have been running low all week. My doctor had me lower the amount of metformin I take. 2 pills down to one pill. Then she wanted me to let her know the results in 3 days. So I emailed her today, and my numbers are all still low. So she has me stopping all my medication. Next step is for me to get in to get bloodwork done, and we will go from there. I might not be able to get in until Friday. I have an Eye Exam that morning, so I can probably get it in before or after. Of course, I can always just get over there sooner.
