Today is a weird day. Not sure if I should be happy or melancholy. When I conducted my bio-markers for the 75 Hard Challenge this morning, there were two conflicting results – one of which thrilled me tremendously. The other less so.
So what were those? Well, as you know, I weigh myself every morning to track the impact of what I ate the day before, and my sleep, on my weight. Well, this morning, the scale showed a weight gain of about 1 lb.
Now, knowing what I know about my body, I believe that this weight gain was most probably because I consumed carbs than normal yesterday. By doing this, I must have interrupted the ketosis effect.
To put me back into ketosis, I will therefore have to make additional adjustments to my meal plan. My meals over the next few days will have to change to limit the amount of carbs I consume daily – less than 30g to get back into ketosis.
The second bio-marker had me elated and really put me on top of the moon for the rest of the day. This was my blood pressure measurements.
They were down from 153/90 at the start of the challenge to 120/75. I am so happy. This is confirmation that that the ketosis approach is working and that I should continue on this path.
My muscles still ache – though not as much as before. An old knee injury is acting up though – so I will need to pay attention to that.
Here were my meals today:
Breakfast – Celery Juice with natural collagen
Mid morning – Nada
Lunch – Mixed Green salad with avocado
Mid afternoon – Baked mixed vegetables with garlic tofu
Dinner – Nada
