I have been back from vacation for over a week now and I’ve been “back on the wagon” with keto since I got home. I’ve been working on losing the few pounds that came on during vacation and today I’m at a new low of 183.8 pounds. I’m so close to the 170s, I can almost taste it! Hitting the 170s will be a big victory for me. It’s my first “goal” weight. Then, it’s off to my next goal of 150 and my final goal of 135 (although my final goal could change as I get closer to there. It’s been a long time since I was THAT low so I may not want to go that low when I get there. We’ll see.)
My keto routine is probably quite boring, but it’s working so well for me that I don’t dare mix it up too much!
Breakfast: McDonald’s Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit minus the biscuit. I don’t really like the biscuits at McDonald’s so it’s pretty easy for me to just toss it aside and not worry about eating it.
Lunch: Turkey Burger with A-1 and green beans with butter. It’s quick and easy and fills me up.
Afternoon snack: Muscle Milk Banana Crème shake - I don’t really like bananas as a fruit, but as a shake - so good!
Dinner: I got the Moe’s at Home last week and that worked out well. I may do that again or just eat Chipotle or Bunless Bacon and Cheese Whoppers minus the bun since it’s a short week and I don’t feel like cooking.
Night Snack: I have my GG crackers at night - four of them with cream cheese and Everything Bagel seasoning. The added bonus, if you can call it that, is that thanks to all the fiber, you don’t want to overeat them. I’m scared to see what would happen if I ate more than four because four is enough to get you making a bathroom trip almost as soon as you wake up! They are super filling so I usually don’t need any other snacks at night after my crackers. That has really helped my weight loss.
On weekends, I don’t eat breakfast and have Chipotle or some other meat + salad type meal for lunch and then Quest Pizza or a bunless burger for dinner. If I get sick of any of it, I try something that I know is keto-friendly to keep me from getting bored. Like today, I had Panera, which I usually dread going to, but I just couldn’t eat Chipotle again! The green goddess salad is amazing and full of good stuff like chicken, eggs, bacon, and avocado.
