It has been a few weeks since I have posted anything, but I am alive! It has been hard to get back into the swing of things since I've been back from vacation.
That does not mean I have fallen off the LCHF wagon-- opposite in fact. Let me give you a run down of the last few weeks!
This year for my nice Maddie's spring break, my brother and sister-in-law and I decided to meet down in Cancun, Mexico and vacation there! So Mom, Matt, Shelley, Maddie, and I spent the week of March 19-24 in Mexico soaking up the sun. We had an amazingly wonderful and relaxing time.
While I was in Mexico, the first few days I was really worried about maintaining my LCHF eating. It was fairly easy with the restaurants on the resort. I had already mentally given myself permission to drink (I'm not a big drinker in general-- but in an all inclusive resort in Mexico? Bring it on).
I was going to try and keep out as many carbs and sugar in my food intake. I did pretty well the first couple of days. But as the week went on, I did allow myself to go off Keto and have some higher carb food-- and my god, the desserts at this place were amazing, so yes... I had some, but only a bite or two shared with someone. I had my mind set that I was going to be okay with a gain of 5-10 lbs. when I got back, because it would all be worth it!
Good news is that I only gained 0.5 lbs! So right away I was back at it- full on Ketogenics. It was a bit rough at first (I did have a period of 'detoxing' where I had headaches, but again, worth it!)
Last week and this week, I was getting back into 'reality mode'. I did not go out and find any new recipes-- I just stuck to some old standards. Got myself back into Ketosis and lost 6 lbs. in the last two weeks. Yep, I'm back in the game!
I am now down a total of 31 lbs. since 1/9/17 and two sizes. I feel great and love this LCHF life.
Now that I'm back-- I will be on the hunt for some new recipes and will be posting more to my blog.
Hugs and Kisses!
