Work it!

So, Matt wants us to work out together. I don't know why he thinks he needs to lift, but if he feels better-good for him. He somehow was able to talk me into it and keep me accountable when the time comes and I am feeling lazy. He's good like that. We did it yesterday and today. I feel better after, but for some reason it is so hard to motivate myself to get to it. I seriously felt like a sulky child, whining I didn't wanna do ittttt...

Last week I decided to take a few days off of the low carb thing. I endulged every single craving, ate lots of cookies and onion rings. I have been back on the wagon for 2 or more days and I still am not back in ketosis. The bottom line for me might be that it just isn't worth it. I have been totally strict with my carb counts, but still am not in the "zone". I thought that if I reached my goal, I would endulge every once in a while, but the truth is it is so hard to go back. Let me just tell you this, I love, LUV chocolate chip cookies! Love them. Get the picture? I do, and when my sweet neighbor brought some over, I ate them. All. That was my first cheating day anyway, so I didn't think anything of it...till they were gone and I couldn't stop thinking about them. So, the next day, I bought some and made some..and ate some..two nights in a row. Matt and I sat back and really enjoyed them just like we used to. It was greattt. The next day, I could hardly see how I could do without. So, a bad habit to get back into. I don't know if I will swear the bad stuff off all together, I am not really ready to commit to that. I have been doing this for a year and thought I could just jump off and get right back on. Not so much.

Hopefully working out will help me see results faster than low carbing alone, then I will be super motivated to stay on the wagon. Ya think?

Good luck on working out.
Just eat lots of veggies, like a whole can or two cups. Fill up on those and you will be too stuffed to eat those yummmmmmmmmmmmy chocolate chip cookies.

I can’t say I won’t have something because if I do I end up eating three times as much. I have to keep chocolate in the house or I will have to have some right now. If it is there I feel safe or something and I don’t feel like I have to eat some.
I am strange I guess.

i think by the looks of your pictures whatever you were doin' works for you! you look absolutely beautiful. (even more than before!)

i'm not big on weight lifting. actually i'm not big on dieting or anything. i have always sucked at it. i'm good at portion control though.

good luck gettin back on that horse!

It usually takes me until day 3 to hit ketosis again. And I totally get the addiction factor. Once I cheat, its nearly impossible for me to pop back on so you are way ahead of me by just making yourself do it. Bottom line is, you have done FANTASTIC for a whole year. Every now and again, a little cheat is a good treat and a good lesson. :) You look just amazing and are an inspiration.

Hey Kid,
Nothing better than a good work out. eaven house work.
You and I havethe same engine.
You work out and you feel great. the endorfin thing is really strong with us extra sensory people.
the hard thing is getting started like you said.
Once you do and if youe ever do it for more than 7 days, you will not want to do with out it.
It becomes a habbit.
Remember your compulsive side;USE IT.
In the end you will not only look better, by the way you look MARVALUS!, but you will be stronger and everything will come so much easier when you get that blood flowing through your brain.
Like your friend says, limit the jumping and all high impact so you don't hurt your joints and ligements. They WILL hurt for a long time if you are not carefull and it will be much harder to start working out again.
Matts a good aexample for you.
Love U

I always remember that keeping fit is one of the most important things for me. Larger the belly, higher the problems with the health.
