Definitely lazy keto-style these days until I can stand comfortably in the kitchen again sans crutches. Sausage, broccoli and butter make for a very, very simple but satisfying dinner at the end of an exhausting day. Will start measuring for real once again soon enough. #keto#ketodiet#lazyketo#aclreconstruction

Rollin into my THIRD consecutive day of working out and I feel amazing 😇 Remember what Elle Woods said about endorphins?! 🎀 Well I'm definitely feelin my HAPPY meter goin up 📊 I was pretty excited to see STRENGTH on my workout schedule for today because when I lift I swear my fire ignites and I'm on another level! I've never really been a cardio girl & I may love yoga...lifting has my soul & that's where my inner badass awakens 😈
I still cannot believe how simple and straightforward this routine is! I've never had this much confidence in myself to FINISH and FOLLOW a routine! And the biggest thing is I'm not just determined to do it for the results and to feel less bloated & stationary, but I just BELIEVE in myself to get myself in a better place mind, body & soul! Every clean meal I cook & every workout I've completed I've done so with pride because THIS IS FOR ME 👊🏾
🚨Looking for TEN LADIES looking to reboot or start their journey with 7 days of: clean foods, simple workouts, & a sister circle for support 🚨
Comment "🙋🏾" or DM me! This is too good not to share and I need to spread this feeling 😍

Halloween is drawing near and I couldn’t be more excited. #throwbackthursday to last Halloween where I dressed up as a scarecrow for extra credit. Simple and fun make up. Are you dressing up this year?
Update: Sooooo have been doing super lazy OMAD med-lowish carb. Would say... probably averaging around 50-75 net carbs a day. My weight hasn't really changed after resuming eating everyday. Around 251-255 for the last 2 weeks. It's slightly irritating because I wanted to be in the 230s by end of month by way of weekly 2:5 fasting. 😣
But! I've seen a lot of NSV. My measurements have maintained and settled the last two weeks, which means I've maintained the fat loss.👌 Improved endurance and strength.
Don't run out of breath going up stairs.
Can now squat past parallel and keep up better in bodyflow/yoga/zumba class.
Increased workouts to 4+ days a week instead of 2 days.
Fasting is awesome for weightloss, not so much energywise after day 3.
One of my goals is to be stronger and have muscle definition. Eating and resistance training obviously helps grow muscles. Whereas, extended fasting can only maintain existing muscle. Gains would be minor. It's a false belief that you lose muscle and ruin metabolism fasting, you lose muscle and reduce metabolism at very low calorie diets over an extended period. There is a difference in how your body reacts to low calorie versus the absence of food. HGH peaks during fasting.
Anyway, will continue to assess weekly as I progress.
Maybe incorporating 36-48hr fasts will allow me to reach fat/weightloss and strength goals simultaneously.
I'm finally back into the swing of meal prepping. ☺️ It makes life so much easier and also less room for temptation! I've got cauliflower mash, broccoli tossed in butter and hunters chicken minus the BBQ sauce! 🤤
Its been a tough week, and my eating hasn't been 100% (que emotionally eating halotop ice cream). Trying to be kinder to myself and to keep in mind that this is a #lifestylechange and not a race. I've come quite far in almost 4 months and a few extra meals and snacks shouldn't really matter in the long run.
