Okay, so I mentioned the other day I was going back on Keto. Yeah, about that. I am definitely one of those people who find comfort in food. And, I refuse to starve myself. So here’s what happened.

The day went great! I ate my meal prep throughout the day, and even tracked it. I chose to let yesterday be a rest day from the gym because I honestly felt like I didn’t have time. And it was raining, which is my favorite weather of all time! So, instead I read some of the book I’ve been reading on the porch with the pup (he’s actually 5, but who’s counting). I read a bit, then went inside and wrote a bit. Then did some of my photography. Before I knew it, it was dinner time. I heated up my dinner, which the protein was something new. Stew Meat. I had never had it. It looks like regular beef. Like a roast, but cubed up. I cooked it in a pan on the stove after marinating it. That’s what diets are, really. Experimenting and finding things you like so that you aren’t miserable. Y’all! I imagine that’s what it would feel like to eat pencil erasers!!! It was chewy and crunchy at the same time. So then, since I was upset about having broccoli and asparagus for dinner (the sides for that dinner) and being too lazy to make anything (one of the reasons I meal prep), I had cookies. And they weren’t even the cookies I prepped! Then I thought, I can’t have broccoli, asparagus, and cookies for dinner. So I had Taco Bell.

And what’s cool is, I don’t regret it. I am human too. Oh, and I looked at my calorie consumption after all the food I ate before the cookies and Taco Bell. And they were low. That means, the meal prep won’t go to waste! As promised, I wanted to let you all know what I prepped this week so you can see what Keto could look like for you. Suggestion: Don’t use stew meat unless you know how to cook it.
