Welcome readers to another publication of Monday Madness. I hope everyone had a great week last week, and I hope you even have a better one this week. I tried a new N=1 experiment last week and I am looking forward to telling you all about it.
I decided last week to re-incorporate exogenous ketones back into my daily routine. I did this to see if I noticed a difference in my mentally clarity and mood. I did not do it for weight removal purposes or eating a cheat meal. So what did I determine. In all honesty I determined that five days wasn’t enough for me to draw a great conclusion. Overall within ten – fifteen minutes after consuming the ketones I did feel more alert and had better focus. I would like to take the test to the next level and try a full 30 days and see what happens. I really am looking for improvements with depression and anxiety. I used ketones by pruvit for the first round test, but I am also looking at ketones made by Perfect Keto. Both companies carry quality products it will simply come down to who I see results with for my own body.
I had another week of no scale change, and I wanted to measure over the weekend but I refuse to allow myself to obsess over it. So I will wait until the last Sunday of the month like I always do. I found that I am way more productive if I allow myself to avoid the scale and measurements too frequently. When I don’t see the progress I want to see I back slide and that is not good. I am glad to say though that my backslides involve keto treats instead of other treats.
I also tried a yoga class for the first time this week. It was so profound to me and I have so much to say about it I will be writing an entire blog about the experience this week. So stay tuned to hear about it and what my future plans if there are any with continuing yoga.
Nothing new or exciting to report in my diet. I continue to be keto/carnivore. I did not track this week as I did work more on paying attention to if I am hungry or if I am eating enough. I want to recenter where I am at in my diet and make sure I am getting the most out of it. I incorporate a very limited number of veggies. The majority of the time its pickles and/or avocado that make there way back in. I also have allowed myself an occasional treat with sugar alcohols in it, which has been nice but I think I need to go back to eliminating it. I notice when I add them back in I crave them more and more and then a hunger cycle kicks in and all I want to do is snack. I also feel that I need to find a way to eliminate heavy cream from my diet again. I really enjoy having it in my coffee on the weekends, but I also think it may be stalling me out. It is one of my last crutches and I just need to focus to get past it. I want you all to realize that even though I have been at this for over a year I still have struggles and I have to constantly work for what I want. The important part is not giving up and continuing to follow what is making you feel the best. I look forward to sharing more great info with you all this week….until next time…What’s Your Confession?
