Eighth Weigh In… OOPS!
Weight - ???
Well, balls. Here I am, entering the third month of my blog, and I’ve encountered my first oops. In the chaos that is my life (which, at the moment, is heavily involved with traveling to and from NYC and home in NJ), I didn’t have the chance to weigh myself this morning. Jumped out of bed with enough time to throw clothes on and run out the door to catch a train. I’ll have to wait for next Thursday.
However, this isn’t too bad. It’s actually the best timing I could have to miss a weigh in. In the first time since I’ve started my keto diet, I COMPLETELY (but purposefully) threw myself out of ketosis last night. In celebration for my best pal’s birthday, I threw (lots of throwing) caution to the wind, and decided to partake in a Houlihan’s Caramel Apple Pie with Ice Cream. Total carbohydrate mode! I’m pretty sure I’ve heard that a cheat day every once-in-a-while is actually recommended in practicing ketosis. It’s all about moderation, right? I’m actually looking up the nutritional info for the pie right now, out of curiosity. Kinda scared…hmm. Well, they don’t HAVE the apple pie on their website. Weird. The ice cream was 23 carbs alone, and their Burbon Pecan Pie has 98 carbs, probably close enough. So yeah, that definitely threw me out of ketosis. The creme brulé had 23. I was almost going to get that too! Probably would’ve been easier on my stomach.
Regardless, I’ve been back in low-carb mode all day today:
- Chef Salad at Penn Station 4g
- Cocoa Roast Almonds (sporadically throughout the day) 4g
- Cheddar and Ham Omelet 2g
- Dar Chocolate Pieces 4g
- HB Eggs w/Jack’s Link’s Cheese and “Meat” 4g
Total so far today ~ 18 grams of carbs
I may (or may not) “cheat” again on the 25th of the month for MY own birthday, I only turn 22 once in my life after all! And then probably again on June 2nd for Cassie and my 1 year anniversary… and then again on July 2nd for HER birthday! Celebrations galore!
Also, since Cassie, me, and Nick are finally signing for our Bushwick apartment tomorrow (just in time for finals! at least some stress is being lifted now!), I’ll definitely be in the NY area for the summer time. Prospect Park jogs will be a must for me. I may bring the elliptical into the place too! Why not!
That’s about it for now. I’ll be sure to have my weight recorded next week. It’ll be the last Weigh In of the semester. YES.
Also, here’s a picture of dinner!
