The downward weight loss trend continues, and I’m actually beginning to become surprised. Once I stopped tracking calories, I thought that my maintenance weight would be in the mid 140’s.
However, this month I weighed in the 130’s for the first time since growing up.
This also included about 3-4 times where I cheated with carbs, but I’m so tuned into the keto diet that I immediately want to get back on track after a binge such as this.
I immediately feel worse, and it usually lasts until the next day. And at this point in my life, I’m trying to limit the amount of time I feel crappy because of eating crappy.
My physical activity has continued this month, and I’m regularly doing push-ups, kettlebell swings and other forms of exercise during the morning. I really want to incorporate pull-ups, because they are exponentially harder than push-ups. That would build muscle faster, but I’m going for tone at the moment.
My current push-up max in one set is 51, compared to 40 last month.
Once the data comes in for dozens of foods, I’m hoping to learn a lot as well as uncover surprises that I may not have expected.

Hit another new low yesterday morning, and I was genuinely surprised because I weighed in at 142.4 only 5 days before. Goes to show the random fluctuations. I have 2 explanations (because I'm not being extreme with limiting carbs, maybe 40-50g/day) – more high intensity physical activity is burning these off, or my metabolism is running more efficiently and can handle a high-carb day better than in the past. I'm planning on testing my glucose with oatmeal this week so that'll be interesting.
I bought so much meat and cheese today at the grocery store. This t-bone was calling my name since it was reduced price. And I took a coupon from a friend for free broccoli since he hates it. Win-win, and produced a colorful meal with #homegrown peppers and squash. The steak was demolished immediately after putting down my phone.
