I am so happy, I got eat some chicken wings today!!!
Chicken wings are my reward when I make weight for the week. For me, as long as I lose 1lb from last week, I consider that a success. So I made it this week, so I got rewarded with delicious (not breaded) chicken wings.
Losing weight sucks. I have cut back so much on volume and calories, and I am amazed at how tough it is to continue keeping the scale moving in a downward direction. My only conclusion is that we are just completely eating way to many calories.
For me, that is the main value of keto. It makes me cut out all sugar and carbs, and even then, I apparently am meeting my dietary needs unless I spend a few hours a week on the treadmill.
It makes me think we need a healthcare tax on all fast food, soda, and candy. Because those are the things that are killing us.
Not making my 1lb per week this week motivated me to get back on the treadmill and suffer through. I didn’t go fast, but I did get on, which is the important part. Still not sure why my ribs and breastbone are hurting, but the stress this week has been crazy, so I’m hoping its just stress and lack of sleep.
Why have I been working out 3 days in a row? The basic reason is that I had the time because it was the weekend, and with Covid-19 keeping us all on social distancing protocols, what better way to watch some TV than walking on the treadmill.
Plus, I need to get to 257 lbs this week, and for some reason I don’t think I”m going to get there unless I keep the throttle up.
