OH NO, Not Exercise!

In module 10 of the Master Keto class it is about what exercises you should do everyday.  I am doing good to walk because my feet hurt so much.  That is until I get them fixed.  I have to go take care of my daughter, Sarah, in Gig Harbor, Washington next month after her foot surgery.  I will see how she does then maybe I will go get mine done.

I know that exercise is needed and do understand that we need some strength exercise.  I will follow Robb Wolfe exercise plan as close as I can get to it.  I do not belong to a gym because I am terrible about going, so it is just a waste of money for me.  I never know what I am going to do day-to-day because everything changes all the time.

Where’s the Keto?

I remember that commercial years ago for Wendy’s. It has 3 old ladies in it and they are so funny. If you are too young to remember these commercials check them out on youtube here.

So in Module 8 Robb Wolfe talked about Ketos and Keto supplements. He says if you are in ketosis your levels should be 0.5 to 3.0. He doesn’t recommend the urine strips for testing because they are not as accurate as the blood test. It is just like taking your blood sugar if you are diabetic. He also states that after being on the Keto diet for years or maybe even month your level could be .4 to .6 range. Also, he said exercise can increase keto levels. You can check your levels regularly at first but after you are in ketosis you don’t need too as much.  You will know when you are in ketosis by the way you feel; more energy and less brain fog.

It’s Working

Today was weigh in day and I lost 3 more pounds.  I am so happy.  I have been feeling so much better.  Several people at church yesterday said how good I looked. I didn’t know I looked bad before but it was great to hear. I wore a black outfit that I think made me look slimmer. I was just surprised to hear so many compliments and it made me feel great.

I still have at least 30 pounds to lose to get to where I am more in my zone. I would really like to lose 50 pounds. I know I am 63 years old and will probably never weigh what I did in high school.  In fact, I think that would be too much anyway. I would probably look too thin which I think makes people look sickly.

I am having to start slow on my walking because since over doing it in Italy I have got Plantar Fasciitis. This causes severe heel pain. It is worst when I have been sitting or getting up in the morning. The plantar fascia is a tough band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. I just got up one morning and my heel was killing me.  It is slowly getting better with a lot of stretching and icing.  What I decided to do is up it 1000 steps a week until I get up to 10,000 again. To think I was walking 10 miles a day before my knees finally gave out. After replacing them I started walking again. The next thing I knew I was in the hospital getting my back fused in two places and decompressed in one. I hopefully, will be released next month, since it has been a year. Anyway I put on a lot of weight and have a hard time even reaching 5000 steps a day. I started with 2000 last week which seemed to be easy. I will start with 3000 this week.

I love my new life change!
