Happy Monday fellow readers! I hope everyone is ready to start another amazing week. I’m ready to jump into my normal chaos head first and I am looking forward to what challenges this week will bring.
So before we jump into this week full steam ahead let’s talk about last week a little. Last week was my one year anniversary since starting my keto journey. While I would love to say I did something amazing I didn’t. I basically took the week to really breath in everything that I have accomplished and think deeply about where I am wanting to go. I don’t have all the answers to those questions yet but I am working on it. I also promise to share them with you when I know what they are. All I do know is I don’t feel that the weight is my primary goal anymore even though I have more to lose. My goals and prospective’s are shifting.
Besides looking back on the the last year, I spend a lot of time looking into how I want to grow and change in my diet. I know I never want to go back to sugar and carbs. I do however want to find the protein and fat ratio that lead me to feel my very best. I have been researching how to better improve my mental health and well being through my diet. I have already improved so much in my health that this is the next step for me. A lot of that research has came from podcasts centered around the carnivore lifestyle and the impact of how meat can heal.
The other main focus in my life right now is finding something positive in everything I do. I have had some days in the last few weeks in my personal life that I just really wanted to give up. I just didn’t want to try anymore. That is simply not acceptable though. I woke up today, I am living my best life, I am chasing my dreams and goals, someone out there does not have that same privilege. Someone out there didn’t even have the opportunity to wake up today. So no matter how bad my day is or how much I want to give up I just keep finding positive people and positive messages to keep pushing me forward. I refuse to allow negativity to control my life any longer.
So this week I want to spend more time on my new goals and my new why. I really need to work on my focus. In addition to that I will be doing WOBO this week. What is WOBO? It is a week of beef only. I will be eating ground beef with some fat added if necessary and about 1 ounce of liver a day. I am doing this because it will be the easiest way for me to see what ratios my body feels best with. This is also a great idea for anyone wanting to try an elimination protocol to figure out some food sensitivities. I am actually using a grass fed ground kobe beef that has an almost perfect ration. So I will be able to add in fat to see where my body responds the best. My fat of choice will be ghee, but may include some grass fed butter as well. The first few days I am looking at trying a 1:1.5 ratio, as in 1 being my protein and the 1.5 being my fat. The reason for the addition of liver is simply for vitamin content and I generally eat 1-2 ounces per day anyway. I will also be salting everything generously to taste with redmonds salt.
I hope all of you have an amazing week and remind yourself to find the positivity in your life and thrive for the best you possible. Until next time…Keep Ketoing On!
