I've been off track for about a week now. I haven't weighed myself because I have a tendency to base my behavior around the number on the scale... down a pound? Excuse to cheat. Up a pound? Spend the day beating myself up.
Last weekend I flew to NY to host my sister's baby shower (I'm going to be an aunt!!!!) and when you're traveling and staying with family it's difficult to stay on track with low carb. When I visit them, they take time to prepare my favorite foods because they love me and want to do something to welcome me. I can't pass up my moms chocolate chip cookies, or my mother-in-law's eclair cake because they took the time to make them specifically for me. And I love that, so I won't say no. However, once I get that taste for carbs again it's difficult to stop. So this week biscuits, ice cream, and beer happened. And not even homemade biscuits-the fast food ones- the ones that are so salty and buttery and delicious but make you feel like you need a gallon of water. I mean, it's not like I binge-ate for a week straight, these were just a few instances scattered throughout 5 days, but today I get back on track. The first two days are always the worst for me. The cravings for carbs are for real. But by Monday I should be in the clear. SO, my super keto go-to breakfast. Two extra large eggs fried in butter, and black coffee. Yes. Please. ✌🏼 .
**CAIRNS IRONMAN SHOUTOUT**⠀
So excited to watch the action unfold on Sunday, a special mention goes to the ladies & gents of the HE family...⠀
Best wishes to Karla! ..⠀
I've been supporting Karla through this journey of potential Ironman retirement, at 70 years of age - she has 17 Ironman's under her belt. ⠀
Withstanding adversity on a regular basis. ⠀
Trials and tribulations challenged getting to the start line, but she is there! For Karla this race is about the essence of Ironman, to see what her body can do and put it to a final (maybe!) challenge. ⠀
For me, I was stepping into some large shoes after the passing of Coach Craig Percival - the baton was handed over, and I hope I've done you proud Mr Percival, & Karla too. ⠀
