Ok, so I told ya’ll I was done with blogging but unbeknownst to me, I missed it! So here I am to update you on my goal to get healthy and lose some weight. I am 247lbs. I gained 3 lbs and have been eating a strict keto diet. Which required me eating under 20 carbs a day. I started getting heart palpitations a few days ago or maybe it was a week ago. I never knew you could have electrolyte deficiencies but I do now. I ordered some magnesium supplements and I’m thinking about getting some potassium. I already drink a chicken broth and just add extra salt to that so I think I’m ok in that department. My husband suggested I add “no salt” to some water and sip that back all morning to restore my much depleted potassium “tank”. I just can’t do it. I added it to my scrambled eggs the other day and it took everything in me just to eat it. It was gross. It was salty and ruined my eggs. I am frustrated by this whole eating healthy thing. It’s so much easier just to eat what tastes good and I have extra storage for heat in the winter so I don’t see what the big problem is. Hahahahaha. Ok, that’s not the truth. Truth is I have to get this weight off. I miss my smoothie diet, which works for me…but I have no since learned that it was high in sugars. I don’t want to have a diet high in sugars and the feeling of being full on a liquid diet as opposed to a high fat “keto” diet is definitely different. I have to find something that is going to work for me and my family. I won’t stop until I do. I’m maintaining the weightloss from my smoothies but I have to find my lifestyle diet. I want to be able to have an occasional treat or if I want a banana, man I should be able to eat a stinkin banana!! There’s an update. It’s just nice to get this off my chest. I’ll blog as often as I can but this you can bet on, I’ll be back. I miss it, miss ya’ll and miss writing.
