Keto Week 4 Highlight Reel

I’ve been taking pictures of my food so I could better remember what I ate so I can better log my food in myfitnesspal. Thus, I have a lot of food pictures! (Microsoft Word recommended I use Thus)

So, before I delete them to make room for the next thousand pictures I take. I figure I’ll take a second to drop them into a blog post and talk about some of my favorite courses.

If you are interested in any one of them. Please let me know and I’ll share the full recipe.


Keto MCMuffin Breakfast Sammich



This little breakfast is amazing!

Genius!

All gratitude goes to Anne Marie for finding and making this Cloud Bread. It works perfectly!

I stuck some bacon, cheese, chicken, and mayo between two pieces. Nuke it for 30 seconds and go to town on them.

They are so a good idea I’m requesting them weekly now. Makes quick breakfast a breeze!




Keto Poppers




These bad boys may look familiar.

It’s jalapeno, cream cheese, and bacon.

You can also use cheddar… Or string cheese.

You can stuff other things in them like fajita chicken, or beef, or shrimp!

You can dip them in beat eggs and the roll them in crushed pork rinds for a deep fry.

Yes!

Stop what you are doing and go try this.

Just… don’t chop the bacon in half. Use the whole slice. We figured it out the hard way.


Keto Casserole




Did you know green beans are keto friendly?

I didn’t until I was cursing at all the pasta and beans in my pantry, lamenting I can’t eat them on keto.

But then I saw their nutritional contents.

Like a bright beam blinding me for a second, the label blared the fiber content.

Not bad at all!

Just add cream cheese and heavy whipping cream. Top with shredded cheddar or crushed pork rinds.

Oh my goodness.

This casserole went hard!


Bell Pepper Keto Cups




You may remember Bell Pepper Week. Well as I continue on my journey, I keep turning to these bad boys.

So good!

Salty, fat taco meat on top of a baked tender bell pepper smothered in a pepper jack and Mexican blend cheese, topped with… wait for it... Bacon

We fell in love in a hopeless place.




Breakfast Scramble




I use had this yesterday morning and It’s going to land on my top 5 breakfast ideas.

2-3 eggs, beat.

Milk and Heavy cream

Spice.

Nuke it in a microwave safe container for a minute

Stir

Nuke it again

Add more Keto stuff

Stir

Nuke it again

It worked perfect with the constant “Daddy Can I have this” from my 3 kids.

About the time they had their stuff on the table, my breakfast scramble was ready.

The funny thing.

I could only eat half of it.

So good.

But

Soooooo full.

Crazy Comparison

Last month I was doing an amazing job on keto.
I lowered my weekly average of carbohydrates from the first month. I raised fat up to where my protein level was and eventually surpassed it
It was a great time and I could tell it was working for me.
Little did I know what was going to happen in month 3.
Month 3
For month 3, I decided to trust fat more.
I did that by keeping carbohydrates around 20.Limiting protein to around 70g.And relying on fat to get me through the rest.
I soon realized I was going to need to supplement fat so I decided to do this with Bullet Proofing Coffee and Tea
In the beginning, it was a rocky start. I wasn't so sure I could pull this off. My first Bullet Proofing ended up a failure. I wrote about it here.
But I didn't give up
As a result, I now have two recipes Morning Proof CoffeeOffice Proof Coffee
I also have some interesting pictures to share. 
Statistics
This is month 2

Notice the calorie restriction?
This is month 3

Note the uptick in calories? 
I'm consuming …

Half Birthday

I love what I wrote today in my journal. I’m going to share it with you.
Do you journal? It’s awesome. Sure, it’s awkward in the beginning but it’s gold long term. You can find So much value writing your thoughts.
One awesome result is you can go back through your life and pick up gems you completely forgot about.
That’s what this entry was about. It’s too great to keep to myself.
I hope you enjoy it.

Hey look! It’s my Half Birthday.
So far, I’ve persevered every time against anxiety. Why does it still trouble me? Why am I still so afraid?
May we remain joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer, always.
Anything worth doing is not a one-step journey.
Stay mindful of your goal.
Things to ask yourself:
Is deviating from your goal worth it?
Will you regret deviating tomorrow? Will you regret it in 5 minutes?
Is the deviation a new experience? Then consider the deviation. New, non-mundane experiences are worth it for the story.
Is it a special occasion? Sometimes the health…

Stairs 2017

In the beginning of 2016, I had the crazy idea to get into shape.  So, since I didn't have any free time nor a place to spend the nonexistent time... I decided walking the stairs was a great idea. Coworkers were doing it, it'll be fun. We'll get to walk and talk, and bond. Maybe I could even make a friend or two! Until I realized I could climb 3 floors without wanting to fall over and pant for air. I was that out of shape.  I was so embarrassed. An Army Veteran, couldn't even scale 3 floors without needing a rest. 
In this post last year I get more into detail about the experience and how I overcame it. I want to say it was quick and easy but it took a lot of work.  But... the work was worth it because now I can do crazy cool things in the same stair well. 
I want to share one with you.
