MEWmore19’s Keto Diet: Day 4, 5, 6 & 7 Journal Entry ASL
Hello, my name is Monica aka MEW (name sign). I am sorry for not post two videos for the last two days now. I am dealing with my other commitments in my living. Now I am back… So, I am planning to do different parts per days to update procedure with you. Right now, let’s focus on Day 4 updates on the rest of that day. For lunch, I had green beans with Thousand Island dressing chicken and nacho cheese- only 2 tablespoons of it. It was very good and delicious. The nacho cheese mixed with the meal very well. It was very good lunch. Then for dinner, I had 6 oz of ground beef with 1 cup of mixed vegetable. With 2 tablespoons of nacho cheese. It was very good dinner as well. The meal was blending very well. It has flavors and healthy at the same time. I did go out for a walk at Erie Canal with my fiance. I walked for 1.15 miles (I wrote 1.5 miles by mistakes…) But, I got some sores on my hips and cramps on my right leg. That means I didn’t drink enough liquid, water. At the evening, before bedtime, I check my blood sugar level. It showed “144” which surprised me how much it went down from 464 before I started Keto Diet. so Keto Diet does impact me with it and see how fast procedure it could be. So, that’s updates on Day 4. Day 5… I gained 2 lbs but why? I am on Keto diet and it should not gain some weight… You have to understand that the procedure of weight loss is not just downhill but it will go down and go up little then go back down, go on. Then it will become stable. That is suppose be the procedure of Keto Diet so you will expect gain couple lbs. For breakfast, I had three hard boiled eggs with two turkey bacon. For lunch, I had similar meal from previous but I had 2 tbsps of Alfredo instead of nacho cheese. It was very good. This is another flavor options… For dinner, I had same meal from Day 4. Ground Beef with mixed vegetable and nacho cheese. For blood sugar level, I was on 126 when I woke up in the morning. I was on 145 before the bedtime. I forgot to check my blood sugar level before lunch. One thing I have to tell you… Most delicious… TEA! I had the tea called “Vanilla Chai Black Tea”, I add the fake sugar called “Stevia” (1 tbsp for flavor) and filled with hot water. SO DELICIOUS! I drank three cups of that. It does help stop the sweet craving. So we have two things that help reduce the craving and they are Pickles and Tea. It was really good…tea… No exercise for me because of commitment with other things in my living. That’s Day 5 summary. So, it’s Day 6 (yesterday) summary… Yesterday was very very emotional day for me. Let you know that I have Depressive Anixety Disorder. Life, sometimes, just hit me hard where I am breakdown. That point where I feel I am a failure. But, it doesn’t mean I am giving up everything and shut down. I just need to “reboot” myself. Then the next day is new day. So, what is Day 6 like? For breakfast, I had the usual. Three hard-boiled eggs with two turkey bacon. For lunch, the usual meal: green beans with Thousand Island dressing chicken and nacho cheese. After the lunch, I ended up had emotional breakdown. So, I decided to order the meal for dinner. However, I adjusted which I ordered. I ordered tender chicken. I am aware that it still not healthy but it is comfort for me. This is one of my issues that I need to work on. Other than that, I drank three cups of tea and it was good. In the morning, I check my blood sugar level and it was 165 which it is high. I figure out why it was high because Day 5, I didn’t eat anything carbs. I figure out that I had throbbing headaches when I woke up. The headaches is the cause of sugar level increase because of the pain that I was dealing with. Unfortunately, I didn’t check my blood sugar level for rest of day. I lost a very small amount of weight, like .4 lbs (I checked on my whiteboard on the wall). But, again, the procedure of weight loss is ups and downs. So, Day 6…was very emotional breakdown for me but at the same time, I need to reboot myself. Let you all know, if you feel overwhelmed and having an emotional breakdown… IT IS OK to take a cheat day. Make sure you get yourself good care (this is important part). Remember the next day is a new day for you and get back on track. For my opinion on the cheat meal dinner, it was not too bad because I ate chicken. I choose chicken over a subs or pasta because I knew chicken is more healthier than subs or pasta. I did eat some fries and mozzarella sticks. I got leftover and I may have my fiance to eat it for one other cheat day if necessary or throw it away. So, to be honest, the comforting foods does help my mental to reboot and feel better. Again, this issue is something I need to work on to figure out how to avoid from happen again. This is something I can look up and try. It is ok to have a breakdown. It’s ok… Life unexpected situation can happen and no lives are perfect. Again, I want to inform you that It is ok. Please don’t beat yourself down internally. I tend to beat myself down when I am dealing with the breakdown. I need to remember it’s ok to breakdown once a while. So, Day 6 was very tough day for me but now I am ok. Today is Day 7. It’s very early morning, right now is 6:31 AM. I haven’t start eat my breakfast. I checked my weight and I lost 1 lbs which I was surprising because of cheat dinner (junk, chicken) last night. But I did lose 1 lb… So, I am here to share my goal with you for today. For Breakfast, I will eat three hard boiled eggs with two turkey bacon. For lunch, I will eat the usual meal (green bean with chicken and either nacho cheese or Alfredo) For dinner, it will be usual as well. Ground beef with mixed vegetable and either nacho cheese or Alfredo, but I found nacho cheese is best option. So that is my meals goal for today. Today I feel nauseous, upset stomach, diarrhea, and headaches (mild). My goal for today is to drink more liquid such as water and tea. The tea help with my headaches. I am hoping…to be able to go out to Mall for a walking. I live near the mall that has three floors where I can walk all around there. I just asked my friend to see if she could come and keep me company. I chose mall because of the cold weather. I heard that there will be snowing later today so I am not sure about the mall yet. I haven’t confirmed about the workout goal for today. My goal is to build my self-care by do something else and find out how to avoid usage of the comfort food This is my Day 7, set my goal.
