My Journey to a Healthy Me, Days 124-126

Well, the last couple of days have not been too good for me. It was mostly mental really. Then mind walls went up, and I just couldn’t get going to do anything for exercise. Food was fine, sleep was even fine. I didn’t get day 3 of C25k. I didn’t even get 1000 steps yesterday it was so bad. Just days where I wanted to do nothing. I was just in a big old funk.

I had a doctors appointment on Friday.  I was down quite a bit of weight from the last time I was in. So that was good. It seemed though, she wasn’t all that on board with Keto. Like I am pretty sure she thinks it is a bunch of eating red meat and no vegetables or something. I told her I don’t always have bacon, but sometimes I do. The most meat I have is chicken. Even with that, I get vegetable in too. There are vegetarians that can still eat and be in ketosis. She just kept talking about there wasn’t many long term studies, but there has been for eating vegetarian. She wasn’t going to tell me to become a vegetarian, but she would recommend going that direction. I also got back on a couple of medications. Not to control blood sugar, but more of a protector for my kidneys and other organs. I still do have diabetes, but it is controlled with diet. I wasn’t there to try to convince her she was wrong though. I will continue to do my thing. I’ve looked up enough information that I am perfectly fine with eating Keto, and how much damage carbs can cause. Otherwise, things were fine. My blood pressure was amazing. At least that is what the nurse taking it said. My fasting blood tests were great. Lower then they ever were when I was doing lower carbs, or whole30 eating.

I left the doctor’s office, and felt really good. I was going to come home and at least walk. I just didn’t want to go right away, because I didn’t want to get too hot out there. Then the mental walls went up. Maybe it was some of the doctor stuff, maybe it was more freak out moments from our future being up in the air still. I’m not exactly sure. I felt I was fine with the doctor stuff, but clearly it bugged me a bit.

I feel that I am having a bit of a mental drain too, and it shows in my bowling as well.

Today, I was done with the pity party though. I got up this morning, and got in a 3 mile walk. I came home and showered. Then got ready to head up to Castro Valley to bowl in match club today. They were serving a meal today for us. I didn’t want any part of it though. So I ate before I left, and had a few pork rinds right before I went in. I avoided the food. I bowled OK. We did well enough. Then I grabbed some Wingstop on the way home. Walking and bowling got me my step goal today. I am back on it.

The last few days

Food:

05/03 MyFitnessPal – 1817 Calories, 13 net carbs, 76 oz of water tracked
05/04 MyFitnessPal – 1571 Calories, 14 net carbs, 52 oz of water tracked
05/05 MyFitnessPal – 1482 Calories, 17 net carbs, 51 oz of water tracked

Overall, food is still going fine. I ate with in my eating windows, though a couple I was finishing eating after 6 pm. Water got tracked as well.

Sleep:

05/04 – 11:38 pm to 6:57 am. 6 hrs 49 mins. 22 x awake for 30 mins.
05/05 – 12:08 pm to 9:28 am. 8 hrs 24 mins. 22 x awake for 56 mins.
05/06 – 12:21 am to 8:04 am. 6 hrs 54 mins. 19 x awake for 49 mins.

I got my reading done, and was off my pc on time. Last night, I had a little later to bed, just because I hit the bathroom first. I even went to bed earlier one night, because I knew I would need to get up early for my doctors appointment.

Exercise:

05/03 – 7,246 steps. 86 active minutes
05/04 – 1,788 steps. 0 active minutes
05/05 – 663 steps. 0 active minutes

As you can see, those last two day were horrible. I did hit my step goal today though.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow is a new day. 🙂 I think I will try to run week 2 of C25k. I need to get out there early while I am in the mood. Then, I need to get some weekly recaps done for the blog here, and my Nerdfitness thread.

  1. Stick with what makes you feel good! If you are feeling healthy then I’m sure you are. I just got my blood results back from the doctor and everything is as perfect as can be. My doctor even asked me what I was doing and he thought it was great. I guess it depends on how forward thinking and open minded they are?

    1. Yeah, the doctor has been kinda like this for awhile I guess. She really feels that there isn’t enough long term studies on people that eat Keto. She felt too limited when she was trying it, so I am sure that plays with it some. Oddly enough, I don’t feel limited really on Keto. I just know there are some things I can’t eat. Though if I want veggies, I eat them. 🙂
