Felt that front come though! I looked outside and saw some pretty dark looking clouds and Archer hadn’t been out for a while, so we went out. When I went downstairs with him, it was still pretty muggy and the winds we starting to pick up. By the time we got back upstairs, it was just starting to sprinkle and the wind was much colder and I was glad I put a jacket on afterall.

Now it’s pouring.

Weather is so neat.

Anonymous asked: Why all of these niche diets and stuff anyway? At the end of the day it's not rocket science: eat good food, eat in moderation and work out. I think sometimes people can't see the forest for the trees with these designer weight loss programs.

I agree, but I don’t feel that keto/low carb falls into that category.

There was a lot more walking than I wanted. I’m actually kinda sore from soccer yesterday. But, I am proud of myself because I was this close to stopping at four miles (literally hit pause and went to track it), but I walked like a third of a mile and then finished it out strong.

So today’s been crazy. 

I don’t even remember how, but this morning, Zane and I were looking at the military rates for Disney cruises. We found one on May 2nd that’s a three night on the Disney Magic just to Castaway Cay for $770 for both of us total. He wasn’t able to get those days off, so I texted a few of my friends to see if they could go because splitting that and being able to drive is only two weeks worth of work for me. No one could make it work, so I asked my mom. She found and booked a flight within 20 minutes. 

And that’s the story of how I’ll be on a Disney cruise in less than two weeks.

Yeah… I mean, I want to try something new because keto hasn’t been doing much for me for a few months now, but it’s hard to go against all the things that have become pretty natural for me at this point, you know? Half a whole wheat bagel with light cream cheese and some protein coffee thing for breakfast? I feel like I’d be hungry again in an hour. I feel like eggs and bacon is a better choice and it’s the same amount of calories. 

Sigh. I dunno. I just worry that if I ignore the diet part and stick with keto but do the workouts, I’ll hurt myself or they won’t give me the results I want. I think I just need more time to think about it…

So I’ve been reading that ‘New Rules of Lifting for Women’ book…

…and I just got to the meal plans.

So. Many. Carbs.

I don’t know if I can do this. It goes against everything I’ve been doing for the last year and a half. Using low fat cheeses and yogurts… Why?! Eating oatmeal and whole wheat breads and crackers?? The horror!

But seriously.

I understand needing more carbs after a workout, but when nearly all of these meals and snacks have more carbs than I would eat in an entire day, I just don’t know…
