Keto Restart: Week 1

Ok, now that I’ve let a whole week pass on this round of keto, I find I’m quite pleased with this week’s results: down 5 pounds! Hooray! Good work, body! Keep it up!

In my last post I noted that my body did something ridiculous but that it was probably just water shifting around, and indeed I was right. That was a weird anomaly and not on my normal trajectory. I was so suspicious of it that I didn’t even note it down in MyFitnessPal – I knew I’d be crushed to have to post a gain next time I weighed. (Also my scale might be haunted) It did bump up again, but not as high as before. So instead, I got to post a loss this morning, even over a holiday weekend!

And friends, we had an epic party at our house on NYE, with a bartender and all the best people I know. It was marvelous, and I drank seltzer water mixed with shots of straight vodka (keto-approved booze!) all night (what’s all this about getting drunk harder/faster when you’re in ketosis? I couldn’t catch a buzz at all), but only a total of about 3 shots because I was having too much fun to remember to refill. I stayed good and hydrated though!

I’m ready for 2018. I took the last two days off from exercise because of everything else going on (throwing a party, cleaning up from a party). But I woke up energized this morning and took on a kickboxing workout and kept up the whole way! I’m getting my endurance back this year.

This week’s challenges includes a re-enactor event all weekend at a hotel, but I’m going to make a plan for that to keep on keto. I’ve done it before with even more restrictive programs, so I know I’ll be fine.

What does your 2018 look like?
