The first time I attempted Keto was in November 2018. I expected quick, rapid, immediate results and when that didn’t happen, I quickly said I was done and it wasn’t for me. There is only so much medication can do for you as a type 2 diabetic and unless you are willing to change your lifestyle, you are in for a lifetime of insulin injections and waiting for a miracle. I chose to be a bit more proactive. While weight loss is high on my list of reasons for jumping back on the Keto train, using it to control my Diabetes is number 1.
My new mission in life is to make this lifestyle just that- a lifestyle…not a quick fix and to do that, I am ketofying favorite foods so this isn’t deprivation. When I stopped looking at Keto as a list of things I COULDN’T have and started looking at as a way to get creative, life got much better!
And so these waffles were born, borrowing ingredients from a few recipes, this one is my favorite.
The One/80 program is broken up into different phases. The first 10 days is the Cleanse Phase, during this phase, you prepare your body for optimal nutrition.
My cleanse phase ended yesterday and I started the Max phase today. I mentioned in my starting stats post that during my first round of the One/80, I was extra focused on my food and nutrition because that’s always been my biggest struggle. So this time around, while I’m still focused on the correct nutrition, I am making my focus on exercise.
Day 11 Stats:
Loss: –.8 lbs Inches Lost: –8.5”
Total Loss: –.8 lbs
Total Inches: –8.5”
I am really pleased with my progress so far- and I can’t wait to see what the rest of this challenge does!!
In my first 80 days of doing the One/80, I lost 20lbs and 30”.
During those 80 days I really worked hard on the food and my issues with food. It wasn’t about being perfect, but it was about putting myself first. Making myself a priority. I did exercise, but it wasn’t consistent and honestly, it wasn’t my focus. My biggest issues have always been with food and I feel like I finally conquered those demons.
After that challenge was over, I knew that I wasn’t done. I wasn’t where I wanted to be yet, so I picked a new date (TODAY!) and set out after my 2nd round of 80 days. This time while I’ll be following the meal plan, my big focus is making sure I’m getting in exercise, even if it’s just a walk, every day.
Starting Stats – April 11, 2018
I am so pumped and ready to rock these next 80 days!!
