Part of my new morning journey for many months now has been a change in my diet.
Last year, my friend Chris introduced me to this keto thing. I bought a course and it didn’t seem all that difficult so Cody and I jumped on board.
For those not in the know, it’s no healthy fats and low carb. Basically, no sugar, no grains, limited to no more than twenty net carbs for the day through mostly protein, healthy fats, and vegetables.
Given that I’ve had the gluten curse for a while now, we both found this program pretty easy to follow. So last year from July onwards, we’ve been on the keto wagon.
The combination of feeling like we’re eating the same things and stalling out as well as the stupid holiday season talked us into going off program. But part of my new morning routine has been a renewed investment in this style of eating.
Enough of the boring part.
The good news—my husband has lost a ton of weight on this and enjoys it with me so it’s easy to stick to.
Sometimes I feel like I would almost rather give up sex so I could have a stupid french fry. But on the other hand, adding butter to my coffee so I get to lose weight is a strange indulgence…
Which also makes the whole you are what you eat even more strange because if I eat mostly fat then, well, you know.
But on the other hand, I’ve been focusing on getting the right nutrients each day. And somehow knowing that eating food that gives me energy rather than taking energy makes me focus more during the day.
This lets me do more in my business—the better I eat, the better my business performs. It’s been really interesting to discover this and has made a shift in my eating habits for sure. Funny how it’s easier to be accountable to my business than it is to just myself.
I’m still not losing weight on this whole program… but am still trying to commit to the habits, not the end result.
And yet, going out to eat and seeing the skinny little girls that only ever worried about like five vanity pounds in their lives… well… let’s just say if my thoughts are on trial, I’m definitely not going to heaven.
