Good Morning fellow readers! Welcome to another installment of Monday Madness, and as usual its shaping up to be a crazy one! This Monday seems a little more off to me due to the wonderful time change of the weekend. I enjoy my sleep and even though I got my 7 hours last night I feel like I could use an hour or two more.
First things first I continued on my carnivore experiment last week. Today is day number 39. This Thursday will be 6 weeks since I started. I somehow have managed to not get sick of steak, but have became a chicken hater even more than before. I also tried some breakfast sausage this weekend and it tasted horrible. I am amazed how my palate has changed and how aware I am of the different tastes. My energy levels are still phenomenal and I can feel subtle changes in my body. The scale hasn’t been dropping yet much, but I am not gaining either which I am fine with as my body needs to heal. My unique thing I tried this week was beef heart. Once I got over the idea of what I was eating it actually tasted quite good. It is definitely not something I would eat all the time, but occasionally it may be worth it. As of right now I plan to continue with carnivore at least through the end of the month.
I had planned on doing longer fasts last week, but my body said otherwise. While I still did IF of a minimum of 16 hours each day I did not get any long fasts in. I’m not disappointed in that at all as I was proud I listened to my body and gave it what it needed. I have started to notice the last few days that after I eat my dinner I am a little nauseated. I think this is my bodies way of telling me I’m either eating too much or too late. So this week I want to play around with my second meal and see what I can discover.
I realized this weekend just how much I am missing cooking these days. Carnivore is pretty simple and not much you can do to cook meat. So I may start incorporating more keto veggies for the kids a couple days a week so I can get a little cooking time in. I may also look into some cooking classes just to have the fun and experience.
Other than that my week revolved around work, blogging, my kids, my husband and all the madness that brings together. I did go on a coffee spree last week and tried a few local joints that I had never been too. Less coffee this week for sure and more focus on my body and what it needs. I hope everyone else has a great week and your madness doesn’t get to mad. Until next time Keep Ketoing On!
