Weight – same as yesterday… and the day before.
But I’m not discouraged. The average weight loss for this time period is still good.
Today is Monday, which means toddler group 🙂 Yeay!
So in the morning, I ate the “oatmeal” I prepared last night. Well, I had exchanged the almonds for walnuts since we didn’t have any almonds in the house.
That was a mistake.
The walnuts gave the oatmeal a kind of sour taste. The kind of sour that doesn’t fit here. So I added some Stevia and cinnamon.
And topped it all with fresh blueberries.
And that was nice.
I can do it again. But next time according to the recipe 🙂
Toddler group was a success in that Maxi actually shared. I had to convince him a little bit at the beginning, but then he was all cool with it 🙂 Yeay!
So after, we arrived back home and as per usual, Maxi went off for a nap with a bottle.
I made myself lunch for today and tomorrow since it’s the same: Walnut Fennel Salad.
I remember loving it so much in the first week, so I was totally looking forward to having it again.
Making it, I was wondering if it was enough since after lunch my nanny was coming so that I could go to the gym (wo-hoo!).
It definitely was filling, but the gym was not easy.
I need to start going 2-3 times per week again to get back to my previous ability, so to speak.
I heard that the first weeks doing Keto can lead to a decrease in gym performance, but I don’t want to just blame the fact that I’m on this new diet. I know that I haven’t been going regularly, so I know it is my fault.
I pushed as hard as I could, but I didn’t take it too far. After all, nothing good comes from pushing too hard at the gym.
I do have to say, though, I did a good job on the bike as I managed to burn more calories than the last time I was on the bike. Not that much, but it was a step forward 🙂
But I can tell you that now, this evening, I totally feel my muscles. I wonder if I’ll be able to walk up the stairs in my own home – carrying a 16 lb. toddler nonetheless, tomorrow.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
So dinner tonight came late. That’s because I had an English lesson with my neighbor from 7-8.
But I had been waiting for this dinner for a while now.
Finally time for Rib eye Steak!!!! With Spinach Souflee.
Hubby prefers his steak rare, while I like it well done. Which means he had to wait a while until mine was finally done, before we could start eating.
The garlic butter on top is fantastic.
Truth be told I love anything and everything with garlic.
As they say in Poland – MNIAM!!! (Yummy!)
So, with a full belly, I go to bed.
Maybe not the best idea in the world, but hey, once in a while it’s okay 🙂
