It been a little while since Sean and I began our weight loss journey and I must admit that I am super proud of how well we’ve been able to keep up with it. Just about a month ago we started the keto diet and about a week after that, we began exercising regularly doing both Shaun T. – Insanity Max 30 and P90X3 workouts every day. Since then a lot has happened so I thought I would share with you a small progress update and our experiences with the whole thing so far as well as share with you some of my favorites when it comes to workout gear and equipment.
First off we are not on keto anymore. We stopped a couple of days ago in preparation for future travels and tours because it is insanely hard to eat out when you’re on keto. We experienced that firsthand at the Black Panther premiere in London when we wanted to grab a quick lunch but had “break” keto (it was one meal so we technically we didn’t break it, it just wasn’t a keto-friendly meal) to get something even remotely related to it. So to make life a little easier on us when we travel, we decided to switch to another diet.
It’s not a major change, it just means we can now intake more protein and aren’t as restricted in what we eat as long as we stay within out calorie budget. This means I can finally say goodbye to eating eggs, bacon and cheese with every meal, which suits me just fine. It also means that I can finally eat fruits and berries again! Oh, and yoghurt! Those few things where honestly what I missed eating the most while on keto. So now it’s skyr, müsli and strawberries every morning! – YUM!!
Going forward from this change is not really going to be any different work out-wise. I’m still doing Insanity Max 30 every day while mixing in some old-school P90X ab workouts. It’s tough but it’s good and I can already begin to see the progress on the outside as well as the inside because I honestly feel great! Much better than last year! I don’t feel like I’m gasping for air when I do a short jog. Going up the stairs doesn’t make me feel like I want to die anymore and I had to toss an old skirt because it simply didn’t fit me around the waist anymore.
I’m really proud of what Sean and I have accomplished in these 4 weeks we’ve been doing this and I hope we can use this as a solid foundation for a much more integrated, healthier lifestyle. I definitely want to keep working hard to keep this positive force going for as long as I can. – Insert beefy arm emoji here haha!
