I roasted some chicken thighs in the turbo oven, and put some baby potatoes underneath to baste in the juices that dripdown. I also made lemon bacon asparagus.
The only downside to meal prepping this is that I can't keep the skin crispy...
A little late for #transformationtuesday but I’m sure it’s still Tuesday somewhere! 🙆🏻♀️
I’ve been struggling the last couple months. I was convinced that I wasn’t doing enough, should eat less food, less chocolate. Then I saw this and was literally arrested in thought.
This was all 100% me. The dedication, self control and struggle was all overcome by me. I was so stoked seeing this because I can actually see with my own eyes how far I’ve come. And I am so proud of myself.❤️
I can count the number of times I’ve worn shorts in public in one hand. In fact, I exclusively only wear it on vacation. Knowing that no one I know will be able to see how I look if i don’t the pictures. I was excited when I put them on but the second I stepped out of my hotel I felt horrendously uncomfortable. I felt like everyone were staring at my body. I just took two pictures that day even tho we were in the gorgeous city of Tbilisi, Georgia with picture perfect backgrounds all around us. In fact that’s how all my vacations were. Refusing to take pictures and constantly consoling and telling myself that I’ll have loads more chances to take pics when I’m “skinny and look good” later. And yet never doing anything about it!
Fast forward to me in the pic on the right. It’s from this past weekend at home. I felt so confident in my outfit, took pictures and just felt so good about myself. 😍
Keto is incredible you guys. I know i make it sound like some magical thing that’ll just make you lose weight but that’s how I feel!!! I never feel deprived and yet I get to see results. I’m still learning to love the journey and where I am at right now. I’m still learning to not be too obsessive about the scale and my calories. But I am a work in progress and have no shame in that. ✨
If you’re starting out or even feeling discouraged, I urge you to trust the process. Give yourself time, take things slowly. Anything less than 20g net carb a day IS keto. You GOT this. 🙌🏼
PROTEIN DAY: Today is basically a modified PSMF day. I boost protein macro wayyyy up, cut fats back and keep carbs moderately restricted.
"Breakfast" was a quick tuna salad with spicy @slawsa, string cheese, and brownie batter @elliquark with a few diced strawberries & @lilys_sweets_chocolate chips mixed in. Ate almost 5 hours ago and still not hungry. (Most of these things I'd eat while on a regular keto day, but probably not as much, or all at the same time.)
Right now I'm rapidly cycling high protein, high fat, & high carb days all within the same week. I will do this for a few weeks before going back to spending most of my time in keto, which is by far my favorite WOE. (If you want to know what diet phasing is or why I do it, check out my highlights.)
You'll see me continue to post what I'm doing even on non-keto days (with a disclaimer for those who may be deliberately trying to avoid that stuff) -- mostly to bring visibility to how different types of food can be easily adapted to keto or any other WOE.
Holy #transformationtuesday! A friend of mine popped over this evening and said, “you look so different! Like compared to our trip from Colorado you look different!” On the left was a picture coming back from Colorado. We hiked one day and I couldn’t make it up the mountain. I thought to myself I have to do something about my weight. 7 months later, 3 months on keto, And (almost) 40 pounds later here I am! Feeling so good about my body image AND my mental health is substantially better. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m still anxious 50-70% of the day but I’m able to shrug it off more quickly or apply some of my coping skills to it. Here’s to never looking or feeling like that first photo ever again! #keto#ketogenic#ketodiet#ketogenicdiet#ketosis#ketoweightloss#ketoweightlossjourney#ketoweightlosstransformation#ketotransformation
