Today was really great. I think my favorite part is that my husband has started keto too. This is something that I never expected to witness. I’m still trying to not get too excited, but holy fuck it makes me so happy. Not for the company, although I love it. But for the chance for him to see what his body is truly capable of eating so clean. For the inflammation and the pain to decrease (or subside entirely). For the risk of autoimmune diseases to not weigh so heavy on him. For energy in abundance and lifted fog and clarity. For no more fear of diabetes. For confidence and general feelings of goodness. Oh my god. I’m so excited for him. And I’m excited too because I don’t think he eats enough and proper nourishment will be amazing for him.
For me, I’m excited for a weekend. There’s great weather and I’ve been cleaning the basement and productivity feels amazing.
I feel good about today’s choices. No chocolate. No baked goods. Eating when hungry. A couple times I was really hungry by the time I ate. That felt good. It felt even better that when I was hungry I didn’t snack. I patiently made a meal and didn’t stuff my face with food while I made food. It didn’t even cross my mind to. I only just now thought about how differently I used to eat.
My macros were pretty today.
I was thinking earlier about all the things I miss about weighing less, being more fit, and eating clean for an extended period of time.
I miss squishy tummy skin and slender fingers. I miss bony wrists and veiny feet. I miss my clavicle.
More than those things I miss pain free days. I look forward to pain free days.
