That Fat Boy Slims – The Ketogenic Diet – Day 21
It still amazes me that people don’t understand and disagree with keto. I’ll be honest, I am no expert and I doubt I ever will be nor will I ever profess to be. But the reluctance to see carbs as evil is very disparaging. It reminds me of ‘The Matrix‘ only the simulation is the food industry and the rebels are the ones looking to buck the system and open everyone’s eyes but they are so hopelessly dependant on what the system has instructed them and brainwashed them into believing what is true.
While I may refer to this as the Ketogenic Diet, it is a lifestyle. I have no intention of doing this to just lose weight and then stop. This isn’t just about losing weight. It’s about improving my health, both mentally and physically. In twenty-one days, the results are astounding. I have been off my anti-depressants fully for over a week and haven’t struggled or faltered. In fact, my anxiety and depression have been at an all-time low. If you read back through all my blog posts, you’ll see that I always complained that I never blogged regularly enough and promised to change that but never did. I’d maybe do a few posts but the interest/desire would wane. I have posted for twenty-one consecutive days. I may not be changing the world with what I write but I write about the changes in my world.
So how did my day start today? I got up at about 09:00. I weighed and I have maintained. No drama – I’m fine with that and, if anything, the walk yesterday may have been the reason (muscle increase etc.) and maybe I’ll lose again tomorrow. I had no intention of going anywhere today – hammered home by the fact I’m waiting for my Holland & Barrett order – without it, what I have planned for dinner is not gonna happen.
I did some DDP Yoga – the Diamond Dozen and some weights, hand grips, ab twists (I used the handle from the mop), sit-ups, press-ups and housework. It’s been a boiling day and this work has just made me clammy and miserable yet I felt good. Go figure. I made myself a bulletproof coffee – identical to yesterday except I added some granulated stevia. I think I added too much as it didn’t taste very nice. I might just not bother with it again.
I chilled for a bit and did my dailies on the PS4, played The Sims 4 (by played, I mean let it run and just keep an eye on it every so often while I started this blog post and did some more exercise). At present, I am a hot sweaty mess who is waiting for this fucking delivery so I can go out the back and hang our washing out. Hermes, so far, have never ever delivered to us on a weekend despite the tracking saying it’s due. This delivery could be up to 21:00 tonight but I really don’t think it’ll show. It’s 15:29 as I write this.
By 17:00 I resigned to the fact the delivery wasn’t coming. Fucking prick. So, I ended up cutting some peppers in half, chucking some Philadelphia in along with some ham and grated cheese. I made six but I could only manage three. I’ll take the others to work tomorrow!
I’m still pissed off that Hermes didn’t show – if that’s the case just fucking tell me so. I’ll be complaining to Holland & Barrett tomorrow and, if he turns up while my wife is home, I’ve asked her to have a go at him as this is the umpteenth time he’s fucking screwed us over. I’m working tomorrow and Tuesday otherwise I’d have done it myself if I was here. I was really looking forward to making a dish from our new Keto cookbook. Twat.
It’s 19:35 and I feel hungry. So, at 19:50, I decided to have some salami and cheese. Doesn’t compare to what I WANTED to have but it’s got my calories up and my macros still looking good too! But that’s it for tonight – no more food or drinks aside from water.
Additional supplements such as Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Oil etc. we get from Holland & Barrett.
