Sunday with Sara | Three weeks on the keto diet!
So we’re back! We thought that it would
be another fortnight before we returned,
but we decided to check in today. It’s
been a week. Fortnight is short for 14
nights. I don’t know if you all knew that.
I didn’t know that. Fortnight.
Fortnight’s not just a video game?! It comes from 14 nights. So that’s how you know
it’s 2 weeks. OK, so we’re gonna start talking about
Sara’s first three weeks on the keto
diet, right after this. I did a solid I
Solid eye cross there. Watch this. Watch this, here we go.
Ohh. Oh my god! They shouldn’t be able to
move independently like that. I just
give myself a stroke, but it was worth it.
So week 3! Wrapping up
week 3. It’s hard to say. How you feeling?
I feel pretty good. I feel pretty good. I
haven’t had as much of the morning
twitchers… Get outta here, morning twitchers! Haven’t
had as much of that this week. What do
you attribute that to? Do you think… um
because I think we did we did up your
salt intake a little bit. Did
we? I don’t know. All I know is that I’ve
been good… you’ve been good about giving
me the magnesium and the potassium. Mornings potassium, evenings magnesium.
Sure. They’re just… he just hands me white
pills and I take them. It could be
anything! Right. Is it weird that they
have little faces with X eyes on them?
Is that bad? Those are to come. And then I see a trail after everything? I like it. Makes
the work day more fun. I’m glad that
the twitchies are gone. The morning
twitchers are mostly gone. I have felt it
a little bit, but not as much. So maybe
hormones are settling? maybe my body’s
adjusting more? It’s been almost three
weeks. I’ve been pretty good about
keeping my net carbs to 20… ish.
A couple of days I’ve gone up to 22. It’s
not… I know. It’s nothing. So I’m feeling pretty
good about that. Speaking of tracking and the net carbs
and everything, I wanted to mention…
well, shout out to the app that I use,
which is called Carb Manager. Carb
Manager Carb Manager. One more time. CarbManager.
Uh-huh. And I just found it on
the App Store, I looked at some reviews, I
know Aaron loves MyFitnessPal, but…
Yeah, I suggested MyFitnessPal at first,
and you told me to get out of here. I soundly and roundly declined it. “I don’t like this…” No, I’d used it before, but
you know, I had to strike out and find
new ground — follow my own path. It’s cool.
It keeps track of… cuz one thing with MyFitnessPal is it’s a lot of user-
generated entries, and a lot of them
don’t take into account net carbs. Right.
Which can be a problem. Whenever I enter
anything in there, I’ll always put like
whatever item net and that’s what I
search…net carbs, and that’s how I
search for. Yes. And sometimes that’ll get
you the results you want, sometimes it
won’t. Right. I think maybe because My Fitness Pal has
been… it’s much more popular, it’s much
more widely used, it’s got a lot more
use- generated stuff in it, which
sometimes it’s good and sometimes is
junk, my car… excuse me, Carb Manager… Carb Manager. One more time. Carb Manager. Card Manganner?
Manager! Hey, you can’t talk to us like that!
It has has user-generated stuff, you
can put your own stuff in, you can do
custom foods, custom recipes, custom meals, but there isn’t as much junk to wade
through yet. You can track your exercise,
you can set it to any kind of ratios or
macros that you want, and it’ll give you…
you know, your your targets for the day.
So it’s been going well for me. I enjoy
it. The last time we talked, we also
talked about some lady stuff, and… My
favorite. How’s that been? 51 percent of the
population, you guys. So I don’t want to
hear any guff — I don’t want to see any
negative comments about talking about
the lady stuff. There weren’t any. Cuz you
are here because of lady stuff. All y’all
are here on this planet
because… Thank you, lady stuff. And thanks to the lady stuff.
It’s been fine. Hopefully settling down.
No real issues. Things seem pretty normal
right now, but also, another shout out to
another app. You know, these days… It’s all
apps! Ladies — apparently the Millennial
ladies — like to use an app for everything.
And so I did get on that bandwagon about
a year ago. I started using an… As a
millennial. Yeah, I’m so millennial. I’m NOT. Gen X. I jumped on the bandwagon of the the
Lady Time Tracker app, and the one that I
use is called Clue, like the old board
game. I assumed there was some kind of
funky spelling. No, like K-L-O-O? Why is
it not spelled C-L-U? K-L-E-W? No. It’s Clue, like it should be
spelled. Fine. I know. But it’s not. And so
that helps you track all kinds of lady
business, all kinds of… I wonder what the
board game enthusiasts are thinking. I
know, isn’t that weird? I thought it was weird that it’s just
called Clue. Colonel Mustard. Like the…
right, in the in the library with…with
the candlestick. There you go. That’s
the default, whenever anyone says that.
Candlestick. Those are the three names… Colonel? Was it Colonel Mustard?
Colonel Mustard. I think. There’s
definitely some mustard. Anyway, I love
mustard, and…Sergeant Mustard. Anyway, so those are the shoutouts to apps. App
shoutout. This has been App Shoutouts. App Shoutouts. With A.D. Keto and this guy.
So we talked about the shakiness, we
talked about lady stuff, and your apps,
and so how about the food we had over
the past week? What did… mm-hmm. What were
some of your highlights? Okay, highlight:
The Thai curry… Thai Yellow Curry Chicken.
I tripled the recipe. It’s another one
from Keto Made Easy by Keto Connect. It
called for… Those guys are killing it.
it called for a pound of chicken thighs,
and I had three pounds of chicken thighs.
I was like, Create it all up. I’m tripling
this b*tch up! Wowww! Salty language from you, this time! It rubs off. That’s like…
The company you keep. Negative influence. So we… we had that two nights in a
row, right? We had that actually the first
night I made it, and then we felt like it
needed something under, like Sara was
like, “This needs rice.” Yeah, absolutely. So I was like,
“I’ll grab some riced cauliflower.” We
had that the following night. Fantastique!
I want to talk a bit about Tuesday
night. I don’t know if you recall what
went on Tuesday. I have no recollection of
that, Senator. You were kind of… Oh, hungry.
You were… it’s it’s the first time since
you started that you have been
frustrated and…hangry, and not wanting to
go over carbs, and it took a great amount
of cajoling, I thought, on my part, to say,
“Shut up and eat. I’ll make you something
good to eat.” Well cuz I’m trying…I’m
trying really hard. I’m still trying to
lose weight, and so starting keto three
weeks ago has helped me get over the
plateau that I was on with Weight
Watchers, but thank you for being gentle
about that, and for tolerating my….
tolerating my tantrum, because I have
been doing this… I’ve been doing weight
loss and Weight Watchers primarily, for
as long as he’s been doing keto. So since
February 2017 I have been obsessively
thinking about, tracking, calculating all
the calories and the points for Weight…
You know, those of you who have done
Weight Watchers, you know it’s all about
points, and I used the app religiously,
and I’m just…I I’m kind of at the point
where I’m just tired to be…tired of
thinking about it. And so… but I’m still….
haven’t hit my goal weight. I’ve got
maybe 15-ish more pounds to go, and I was
just tired. It’s been really stressful at
work, maybe some of y’all can relate to…
you know, work stress. I was just tired,
and didn’t want to go over my fat
allotment, or my carb allotment, or my
and feeling trapped and frustrated, and
had a little wee tantrum. So the thing I
told you… Not my best moment. It wasn’t that bad. I’ve had waaaay worse tantrums.
Especially early on, which… this is early
for you. You’re like two and a half weeks
in at this point. Yeah.
Not to worry about calories so much, and
if you were hungry… One of the tenets
that I live by…
tenets. Tenet. T-E-N-E-T. One of the tennis
that I live by is… If you say tenant, like a
tenant in an apartment building, Imma cut you. imma cut you! One of the
tenets … One of the soft spots. Right between the ribs. …is: Eat when you’re hungry. Don’t eat when you’re not
hungry. That was one of the things that I tried to
latch on to early on, and… Sound advice. …Abandoning… a abandoning the…”I have to get lunch
because it’s 12 o’clock. I have to eat dinner because it’s 6:00.” That’s so hard for me. I know!
But there… You know that I came from… I
come from people who are already
planning dinner while they’re eating
lunch. I understand. You know, like… you know my
grandpa? Yeah. “Do you think we might have a cracker?” No. “Do you think we might
have some cheese and crackers this
afternoon?”, he would say to my
grandmother. So you know, like as we’re
finishing up a meal, he’s already
thinking about what’s next for dinner
tonight. So like, when it’s dinnertime, I
need to eat dinner. And if I don’t eat
dinner, I’m gonna be kind of mad and
peckish, and like grazing, and like,
looking around, weaseling for food. This
is something that I struggled with, too.
It’s a mental game. It is it’s all mental I
don’t… I’m not good at mental games.
Yes you are. Weak-minded.
Weak. Weak in the mind. At any point, I
think as you continue, you might get in a
little bit better touch with actual
hunger, and not relying so much on the
clock to tell you when it’s time to eat. Yeah, I also have impulse control problems. But I
think that this way of eating will help
you with… SHUT UP. both of those things. It will. Okay,
so I tried to do some meal prep last
weekend .I made… I was like, “What…what am I
gonna make?” We ended up just making some snacks,
because I had snacks… snack ingredients
on hand. I made some fathead crackers,
which… I was must say… Oh, those went fast! …were gone in like, 15
minutes. The kids… The kids got ahold of
those. … LOVED them. Remember last time we talked about cheez-its, and one of our kids is
like a total carb hound, and dude…
not only is a carb hound, but a junk
hound, which I mean… who can blame him? I mean, the apple didn’t fall far from
the tree. But Aaron made these
Fathead crackers, and they are very
cheesy and they were… They were good.
at first — our son — said, “They’re too greasy.” And then he gobbled and then he ate all
of them. He worked past that. Worked past
that greasiness. Greasy. Voiced. I also
made Candied Georgia Pecans from Keto
Made Easy. Those also were gone… I think
everything was… No, I did bag those
up in little baggies. Yeah, I brought
those for a snack at work a couple of
days this week. So good, because…They’re
dangerous to have there, not doled out.
Delicious. Yeah — no, you can’t just have
one big container of them. You have to
put them into like… single serve… yep,
snackie bags. Cuz otherwise, it’s trouble.
Then I made another skillet cookie,
because I got none of the last one. Guess
who only got 1/4 of it this time? However,
I didn’t have the chocolate chips — the
Lily’s chocolate chips are hidden in my
daughter’s room somewhere. I didn’t know
where they were. She was gone to a
friend’s house, so I happened to have a
Lily’s Salted Almond and Caramel bar
that I just chopped up used that. Worked
great. Delische. We decided not to ransack our
daughter’s room to find the chocolate chips. I mean I looked under the bed — that was about
as far as it went. And they’re still in there? They are. All
right! Good to know. Then we did — for the
second weekend in a row — Loaded
Cauliflower and New York strip steak, that
everybody enjoyed. Classic. Classic. Loved
it. Two weeks makes it a classic. Two weeks
makes a classic. And so that’s all we that’s what we ate.
Yeah, those are the food highlights. I
loved the Cobb salads. Oh, we forgot about
the Cobb salads! Well, that’s what I gave
you the night of your tantrum. You’re righ….
Two gigantic… It will go down in infamy.
Listen, I am tired of thinking about it.
I get it! And I’m just… I was just tired, and
still hungry, and also feeling guilty
because I didn’t want to go over, cuz I
am still trying to lose weight. Trust the
process. Do it. So the Cobb salads were
great. Seriously, I’ll cut you right open like a tauntaun,
anhide inside for warmth. Smell my guts. I do! And then we just had leftovers last
night. So it’s Friday night now. We’re
recording Friday night, hoping…hoping to
get this up and on YouTube by Sunday
morning. I have a busy weekend. I’m going
to be gone. Family time. With my father
and my children at Enchanted Forest
Water Safari! Where the fun never stops!
Mmm it’s in the middle of nowhere.
Old school upstate New York reference! Central New York. Gonna be here all day tomorrow. Leaving
early. It’s supposed to rain! It is. It’s gonna
rain at the water park. We’re gonna be getting wet anyway, so what? So what, who cares?! So what?
Should be fun. So I’m not gonna be able to meal prep
anything for you tomorrow. It’s gonna
have to all be Sunday. I have… I have one
more serving of the Thai yellow curry
chicken. There are two in there.They’re
gonna both go in my mouth. And some
leftover riced cauliflower. So I’ll just
eat that tomorrow. Okay.
I’ll make you an egg loaf before I go in the morning.
That would be good . Yeah. And some bacon. Yeah, always. I gotta go get my nails
did tomorrow. So I’m gonna have the house
to myself. I’m gonna try not… what are you
doing? Shut up. I don’t even know. Shut up.
You don’t need to know. You don’t… you
don’t need to know. You get information
on a need-to-know basis. Understood. No,
I’m just gonna… seriously, I’m just gonna
sleep late, go get my nails did, and eat
some riced cauliflower and some bacon.
Fantastic plans. But it’s gonna be
sweet. I’m gonna have the house to
myself. I gotta say, I love your dress.
Thanks! This is a maxi dress. If you go… if
you guys could see it, it’s a super-maxi
dress. Goes all the way down to my
feet. Below the feet. And I’m five foot
seven, so… and things are never long on me. I have chicken legs, and I have a waist
that’s basically about here. Like, my
waistline is right here. Right. So the fact
that this thing is actually a maxi dress
on me is pretty exciting. Very Paisley.
It’s from Lands End. This is the first time I’ve ever worn
anything, I think since I was probably 14,
that’s a size large. That’s a win for me.
NSV! So yeah, I love it. I like that
you’re wearing the shirt that has the
stains on it, but they can’t see it,
because the stains are down here. Show them.
No, on the other side. There’s
some like… like, you spattered oil on it
at some point . Yeah. And then just kept on
wearing it. There it is.
That’s coconut oil, I think. We think. We
don’t really know. I had this on to go
to work today, and you were like, “You can’t
wear that.” Can’t wear that. I forgot about
the stains. It’s only for like… talking head
video time. Yeah. So that’s it, guys. That’s
week three. We’ll see what happens in the
coming week or weeks. Yeah.
This proved to be relatively easy to put
together last weekend, so I don’t know.
The schedule is still in flux, you know, as
far as putting this out every week.
That’s my gang sign. If I were to form a
gang, is this a gang si… Oh, sh*t, I hope that’s
not actually a gang sign. I think the
Crips are coming for you. I just got jumped
in. Oh, just got… changed my lifestyle,
significantly. Next time we’ll talk about
the fact that I can count to ten in a
bunch of different languages. That is
interesting. I can count to 10 in… three.
Let’s do it.
French? Four, maybe. French. Can you do
English? No. Un deux trois quatre cinq six sept
huit neuf dix. Let’s let’s try that
whoa God Thanks. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
17 18 19 20. Enough of that. That’s a
lot of years of French. French major.
You’re showing off. I used to know Korean.
Oh, right. From Taekwondo. Because I
went to a family Taekwondo class with my
boys, like five or six years ago.
You did that for like two or three
I remember… I remember ilgub is one of
the number… one of the numbers. It was fun
to say. That’s fake. You look up… you made
Ichi ni san shi — and she that’s as far as I can go in Japanese. Dul? Hana? I can’t
remember it. So that’s it, guys. Hope you
have a fantastic week, we will maybe see
you next week, maybe see you in two weeks. But I hope you have a fantastic day.
See you next time! Bye! Bye!
All right we’re going here. Okay. You good?
I was BORN good.
