My Journey to a Healthy Me, Day 205

Last night I enrolled to the local community college, and was accepted today. Looks like I can start taking some classes. Just a little something to work on, so that someday I can get back out in the workforce.

I weigh myself each morning. I know numbers fluctuate and all that. I mainly do it so I can spot trends. I see a few days that I am gaining, maybe I need to get my food. Well, I have still been losing. While getting my mourning routine in, I realized something. I am only about 30 lbs away from being at my lightest weight. At least from what I can recall. Sure maybe when I was 22 or something I was lighter. October 8th, 2014 I weighed 257 lbs. That was the lightest I have been since a really long time. I had gained everything back, and started fighting back last year. Though this New Years I really started to kick it in gear. I was 367 lbs on New Years Day. 286.6 lbs this morning. Hey, maybe in 3 months or so, I can hit that milestone :) Just got to stay the course. Keep on moving on!

Not a whole lot else done though. I want to make a couple of recipes. First, some Rosemary and Garlic Coconut Flour Bread from  They also have Keto Shortbread Cookies | Pecan Sandies! That I really want to try. My Mom use to love the Keebler pecan shortbread cookies. I wonder how close these might be. They sound really good. There are a few other recipes I want to make too. Lots over at too.


07/23 MyFitnessPal
 – 1886 Calories, 26 net carbs (10 net carbs if you subtract the erythritol (4g) and Allulose (12g)) I actually ate most the food at one meal. I did have some sunflower seeds, and pork cracklin’s to snack on. Then on sausage before I went to bowl.


12:32 am to 6:46 am. 5 hrs 48 mins. 16 x awake for 26 mins. I was actually in bed pretty close to the time I wanted, But I couldn’t get settled in. Dog was pacing around, and it was warm again. I was getting in a pretty good sleep, but then woke up early. I thought it might have been close to 8. Like there was enough light that my body was like “Oh man, we should probably wake up” Then I looked and saw it was like 6:30. I tried to lay there longer, but the body wasn’t having it. I did almost miss my start reading time, because I applied for school. I did get in in though.


I want to do so much, but then I don’t haha. I want to cook. I got in window tint I need to put up. (please let it help darken the room) I also have plenty to hang around the house, and unpack more.

This coming weekend I have a big bowling trip as well. 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive one way. I will drive there and bowl. Then stay at a hotel. Bowl the next day,  and head home. I need to prepare a few food items to bring with my. I’ll be taking my oldest son too. I am sure we will be eating out. I just have to keep it keto!
