Well, day 2 of keto went exactly as I had planned. I was sad to see that I ended up gaining 0.2 pounds since yesterday, this morning, but that is objectively so little weight I won’t be letting it get me down. A quick rundown of the meals for the day –
“Scrambled” (microwaved) eggs and two pieces of bacon. Never again, using a microwave to scramble eggs is pretty gross.
Some more of that steak … stuff. It hasn’t improved with age. I’ll probably be throwing out the rest – too much gristle!
I roasted some frozen broccoli in the same pan I had previously used to cook bacon, and tossed the broccoli in the bacon fat after it warmed up. I also threw in two chopped garlic cloves. Much tastier than the protein!!
I got a little fancy with dinner (hahaha) by roasting a whole chicken, doing bacon-wrapped asparagus, and then made crescent rolls for the non-keto members of the household. Totally delicious. I had two more of the asparagus after this was shot!
As planned, I had a 24 ounce Coors Light as I wound down for bed. I honestly felt fantastic all day, but I went to the gym and spent an hour on the recumbent bike and the elliptical and it really pushed me over the edge into feeling gross again. Even with the Coors, however, I stayed within my target carb range for the day!! Tonight, I plan on buying a six pack of Coors Light and tapering down to 12 ounces of Coors a night. After that… something carb free. 🙂 See you tomorrow!
