Every single step sucked today. Some days are just like that, no matter who you are or who you follow. Don't ever get lost in the fantasy that they don't suffer, hurt, push through. I had to push hard today. I had to keep the goal of crossing the finish line at the forefront of my mind so I didn't quit. This isn't just about me. It is about all who donated to help kiddos through Children's Miracle Network. It's about running with my daughter and her best friend. It's about honoring myself and reaching my goals. #digdeep#whoinspiresyou#pruviteveryday#lowcarbathlete#cmn#childrensmiraclenetwork#princessintraining
I'm back on the map?! I've been eating a ton of nuts and cheese and bell peppers lately. I need to cool it...too many carbs?! But from my understanding if your producing any ketones through your urine then you are in ketosis, right? excess ketones you pee out so the ones that are not used are excreted through your urine... Right? That means any amount is fine. if you find a dark color that doesnt mean a high amount of ketones, it just means you need to drink more water, right?
I should just buy a ketones blood test meter.
I had such a great time last weekend and these photos prove it. I've gone from running with hate, rage, anger and fear to running with happiness, love, freedom and passion.
2017 has been a rollercoaster, this year has more ups and downs than this crazy course profile. But I wouldn't change what has happened, I've learned a lot about lust vs. love, true love, the people I choose to keep near my heart.. I've learned that the bottom isn't such a bad place if you control the way you climb back up. I've learned a lot about what makes family and it has nothing to do with blood or DNA.. FUCK science! I've learned how to go beyond my limits and I've learned how to let people into my life. I've learned how to have friendships and I've learned to let go, and at the same time as letting go I've learned sometimes you have to hold on so you can breakaway from toxic people. I will not let my life be a garbage dump for selfish people and I will no longer be a selfish person. 2017 was a time to really face my past, face the things I don't like about me, and learn from it, not to dwell on it. Now that I've faced all of this I'm ready to come out the other side and conquer my future. . (Photos taken at mile 2 and then again at mile 22!) .
Oh and I won! 1st place female overall and 4th place overall!

Discovering this lifestyle is usually a hugely positive thing for many people. And when we find out we’ve been conned for so long, we want to tell the world about it! It can be so hard to watch family and friends put things in their bodies you know is not going to improve their health. I’ve been there... and I’ve learnt to let it go. You can only be a teacher, if you have a student who is willing to learn. .
When I was working as personal trainer about 6 or so years ago, a client told me about how they had just read a book Sweet Poison, and how sugar was so toxic. I was interested, sourced the book out and read it. That book marked the pivotal moment when my (and my families) life change forever. I tried to tell all and sundry about it, but ended up getting frustrated when they didn’t listen or weren’t interested. Until a couple of years later I was having coffee with a dear friend and was telling her about the book. She started telling me that she had already read it, and I got annoyed at her for not telling me about it. Her response was this... “Tracey... I told you about that book about 2 years ago.....” Wow. And that’s what I always think about when I reflect on the above quote. I wasn’t ready to learn when she first told me. But when I was ready, a teacher was provided.
Do you have a similar story to share?
A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc.
When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin.
Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy so that it will be chosen over any other energy source.Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodstream by taking it around the body.
Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.
Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver.
The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates.
Use those fats to plow thru those heavy plates!
It’s Friday night and I say, stop by your good old friend, gym 🏋🏽♀️and push some weight around before hitting the streets with your entourage.
