I am still here!
Everything seemed to be going fine, until it just wasn’t.
The last couple of weeks have been rough. The mind can quickly just kind of shut everything down. The holidays in general can be rough. Fighting off all the foods, plus dealing with no money.
Still, I made sure the wife and kids had gifts under the tree. I was also able to keep it keto.
Oddly enough, I have been eating more, staying up later, and even stopped walking or exercising much in the last couple of weeks. Still, I lost weight. My conclusion to this, is that I may have been trying to ear too few calories again. I have hit my lowest weight again. 257.6 lbs. The last time I was this exact weight was October 10, 2014. So celebrate the victories I can haha.
I am prepping for the start of the new year. Thinking of what I want to get done health wise. There are only a few days left of this year, and with all the struggles, I have made it. I stuck to my guns. I kept that New Years resolution I had at the start of 2018.
Technically, I am going to start on the 31st. The new Nerdfitness challenge will begin on the 7th. My plan is to stick closer to 2,000 calories each day. I want to focus on getting 10,000 steps each day. One rest day. I also want to get in workouts and running. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Next year, I want to be able to do a pull up. So my workouts will help to build up to that goal. Along with my diet, I want to continue to lose more weight as well. Next step is hitting below 250. Then 225. Then possibly, I can hit that Onederland territory. Honestly, I would be happy being a pretty fit 185-200 area.
So here we are, on the eve on a new year. How did your 2018 wind up? I am pretty proud of how I have done this year, despite feeling I could have done much more. It has been a great learning process along the way as well. Who knows, maybe I will get my wife on board with Keto. She has been talking about it. 🙂
