A bit about my weight loss progress, vacation, and getting back on track ... Going into that weird, terrible virus from hell, I was down 35 pounds in 15 weeks on #keto. The following couple weeks after that, I could barely swallow, sleep, exercise, etc so I relied on chicken noodle soup, sugar-free Jello-o, sugar-free pudding, and so on. Interestingly, I had no weight loss over that time.
Vacation hit and I planned going off plan - if that makes sense. I didn’t overeat while in South Dakota, but I allowed myself to have that baked potato with the steak. I participated in the wine tasting at the local winery. I ate that bagel before heading out for a day of hiking and exploring. And I ate that ice cream while cozied up in the cabin with loved ones. I, of course, am carrying a few pounds of water weight this week. No regrets. No worries.
It didn’t trigger some downward spiral of binge eating. I didn’t regain those 100 + pounds I’ve lost overall so far. I didn’t die. And everything’s gonna be alright.
But, now that I’m home and back to my routines, we’re back doing those things that make a difference towards my bigger goals - intermittent fasting, keto, proper hydration, exercise, etc.
I continue to weigh in every Monday and I certainly don’t get my panties in a bunch over 10 days of being “off plan”. In years past, something like this would derail me entirely and I’d never be able to get myself back on track. Balance is key - in life, in diet, and in mindset. 👍😘
