Keto Week 28 – Catching Up

Keto Week 28 – Catching Up

So I might have been slacking on updates… between the Christmas break then hitting the ground running at work this year, blogging kinda fell by the wayside. My intention was to maintain the current weight I’d lost and although I transitioned intentionally to eating low […]

Keto Week 16 – Review

Keto Week 16 – Review

Finally able to get some weight on my ankle this week, but food was still relatively simple, back-to-basic keto style for minimum standing. Complete NSV at the weekend was having to buy some wardrobe staples (tops and jeans) in a size 12 as everything is […]

Keto Week 15 – Review

Keto Week 15 – Review

So after last week’s optimism, I seem to have either not entirely got over the gout, or I had a back-to-back attack because it seemed to mostly disappear, but then came back over the weekend in its usual place. Thankfully, due to sitting still pretty […]

Keto Week 11 – Review

Definitely not my best week as on Monday I came down with the mother of all colds with a fever that pretty much laid me out until Friday. Food was often a mishmash of what was in the fridge, or Chinese takeaway, and although I […]

Keto Week 10 – Review

Keto Week 10 – Review

Not going to lie – I’m a fair weather runner so I’ve not been out this week… Have also been late home from work a lot, so meals tended towards the quick and easy side of things.  I had liver and bacon a couple of […]

Keto Week 9 – Review

Keto Week 9 – Review

No running this week as still really fatigued, bloated and uncomfortable. My period FINALLY started on Saturday, which saw most of Sunday spent on the sofa 🙁 Saturday night we took a friend out for dinner. I had Scallops & Bacon followed by a Sirloin […]

Keto Week 8 – Review

I did runs 2 and 3 of c25k this week – not sure it feels any easier yet! Still seem be to be suffering a lot more fatigue this week, but not sure how much of that is because my period is running late; I’m […]
