The first day of this week starts off with a big keto breakfast and ends with a “results” photo. I have to admit – only because pictures don’t lie – that I’m pretty much back where I started. Which is okay for two reasons.
First, I lost a little of my willpower right after the stay-at-home order went into effect. I stopped intermittent fasting for a while because I was home all day and it took some time to muster up the discipline to get back into it. Second, I had to work on my gut issues and so I purposely consumed carb-heavy kefir, oat bran and kombucha for a period until things improved.
So, even with the fasting I’ve been doing, I’m definitely playing catch-up.
After fasting Friday and Saturday of last week, I was excited about having a big keto breakfast on Sunday (5/31). In short, I ate way too much food and had to lay down for a little while!
I ate pecan waffles, bacon, 2 poached eggs and a chocolate latte. It didn’t even taste that good after the first few forkfuls. And my latte was way too sweet.
All in all, that big keto breakfast was a bit of a mistake. I will need to take it easy after extended fasting, even ADF, going forward.
I didn’t plan to eat breakfast on Wednesday, but I needed to cook the rest of the waffle batter, so I ate a waffle. The batter had gotten really thick, so I added a little avocado oil, a little heavy cream and a little water. About 1/2 tablespoons each. Perfect. The taste was better as well.
And now for that photo. I’m not thrilled with my lack of progress, but here it is:
