I got this step-counting app for my phone called Pacer! It’s really neat, and it lets you join teams with friends and set step goals.
Initially I’m aiming for 3000 steps/ day (yeah, I know that isn’t a lot, but for someone my size and activity level it is!). Once I lose some weight and get in better shape, I’m going to try for 5000 (maybe park further from the building and take more breaks).
Also, my doctor has cleared me for swimming, so I’m going to do that twice a week after work to start (too bad the app can’t track my swim, lol). After a month or two, I will increase the intensity or frequency... for now I want to take it slow and not do anything to aggravate my healing back.
I weighed in at the doctor’s office at 416 😖. It was after a large meal and drinking water, and with clothes, but that still means I’m probably 410-ish in the morning, and I really want to lose that weight and get back under 400lb. That is my goal for October.
I’m having such a rough time sticking to keto, and it has been causing me to want to binge. I’m thinking about trying no carbs til dinner, and moderate/low carb at dinner (~50g/day), just so I can satisfy that craving without going nuts. That way, I would be burning fat all morning and afternoon without any significant insulin spike until evening. Maybe once I am used to this low-carb diet, I could try keto again. For now, portion control and eliminating binge eating is most important. Baby steps!
