That Wasn’t Goodbye
…it was actually hello!
So, last weekend we decided to have a cheat day and kick ourselves out of ketosis and we did that for a few reasons. First, I wanted to eat Raising Canes…because I love Raising Canes, and second, I wanted to see how long it took to get back in and how it would affect my body, weight and to just experiment. Experimenting and find what works for you is the ONLY way to successfully do Sharketo; what works for me may or may not work for you.
The wife only take a couple of days to get back into ketosis and to get back to the weight she was at, while it took me about 4 days to start showing signs of being back in ketosis and I’m 2 lbs. above where I was the day before we loaded up on carbs.
Last Monday, the weigh in AFTER the carb upload, I gained 7 lbs. and had jumped back to 399 lbs and this morning, I’m back to 394 lbs and should be back to my lowest of 392 lbs either tomorrow or sometime this weekend and hopefully I’ll get lower before Monday…would love to be around 390 lbs. I’m still ahead of where I wanted to be at this time and that is with all of the added stress of trying to buy our first home…a house that is beyond PERFECT for us and what we want! We’ve gotten passed a few hurtles and there are only two things left and then we will hopefully start moving in July! (One of the hottest months in KY…woo hoo!)
If everything goes well, I will have a dedicated spot to call my Sharketo Dojo- a place to be away from everyone and just work out- I have enough equipment to make a gym. I have the bike for cardio, boxing, kettle bells, free weights, an all-in-one weight bench/home gym, a stepper, heavy ball and yoga mats. It will be a great place to just blast some music and have no distractions. If it falls through, we will honestly be devastated- we’ve already put tons of money into the process- time, stress and just trying to make sure everything happens the way it needs to; fingers crossed.
So, in closing…please understand that if you screw up and take a day off and know yourself out of ketosis, you don’t have to say goodbye to this lifestyle- you just pick up the next day and move on and never think about it again. You HAVE to make this your normal way of eating 99% of the time- it has to be your normal. Eating Oreos or Raising Canes can’t be your normal- those things have to be saved for special occasions, breaks or just a celebration.
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
