Journey to Keto

Journey to Keto

I’ve been working from home since March of this year and I LOVE it! I’ve been cooking more and tackling some projects around the house that I put off for far too long.

For me the difference has been being home already. When I had to leave the house for work time was spent prepare to leave the house and be gone for 8-10 hours each day. Added to that was the travel time – and I live pretty close to my job. There’s also the thing about coming home after my peak energy time had passed. I rarely got home before 8pm and tackling a big project was a big, fat Nope. Now I intermingle household tasks with work and it’s making me much more productive.

Last month it occurred to me that many of the reasons I haven’t adopted a more balanced diet was always being away from home. Whether work or church or connecting with family/friends – I was almost never home. That meant a lot of fast food, usually not the healthy kind.

I decided on June 1st I would Tackle my HUN and plan my meals so they would be very low carb. What’s different this time is that I took an entire month to develop a plan. I thought about the feelings I commonly have around food and put together a strategy to manage them. I thought about things like what if I have a taste for something sweet? What if I don’t want bacon & eggs for breakfast, what else can I have? What if I want something fruity to drink? I was able to find keto options for all of these events which I think will be a big help.

I also recognized that sometimes I eat before I think. To cope with that I created a printable pep talk that I promised myself that I will take the time and read it before I put anything in my mouth.

My first check-in will be June 8th. I’ve decided to do it every week so I can keep this process top-of-mind. I have a gazillion projects going on all the time and it’s easy to lose sight of what I’m supposed to be doing.
