I suppose it’s necessary to have a where-the-hell-am-I-now post, for the sake of comparison. Oh and by the way, I’ve decided to curse a lot more in 2018. Hope that doesn’t offend, but it if it does, too fucking bad.
Current weight: 210.8
Current fasting blood sugar: 164
2-hr postprandial blood sugar – don’t know, I just woke up.
Blood pressure: 141/90, heartbeats per minute: 82
What I’m eating: Low fat, lowish carb, generally low-histamine, not counting calories and eating to satiety. The lowish carb is not to induce a state of ketosis – it’s to keep my blood sugar under fucking 300. I would like to increase carbs as my blood sugar drops over time. Example: For breakfast I just ate 2 eggs fried in chicken broth (no additional fat), a bunch of random veggies (onions, garlic, brussels sprouts, mushrooms), a couple tablespoons of kidney beans. For lunch I’ll probably have something similar, but maybe chicken breast instead of eggs. I’ll be keeping fat around 30-40 grams a day on average, but not planning on counting anything at this point.
Exercise: Walking on a treadmill or eliptical during my lunch break, yoga in the AM for 10-15 minutes.
That’s it for now. Gotta do yoga. Learn to de-stress.
Had CB #12 yesterday. Water was 63 deg F to start, 64 at the end. Felt good, but I was happy to be done. My schedule didn’t allow for going out and getting ice yesterday, and I probably won’t today. I really just need to find a happy little used freezer on Craigs List so I can freeze my own. Still looking.
Weight is the same, around 185.
I’ve been having a ton of energy in the evenings after my CBs. It’s making me not want to go to bed at a reasonable hour – Its been a week since I went to bed before 10:30, and I had to force myself to do so. I just feel like doing stuff! Of course then I’m the walking dead the next day, keeping myself awake by counting how many times I yawn. The obvious solution is to do CT in the morning…but I really don’t see that happening. I’d have to get up at about 4:30AM 3 days out of the week to do that…and it doesn’t sound fun. I’m sure I’ll try it at some point.
I find it interesting that some people are so hateful of Dr. Kruse. I think if he were more humble in his presentation people would warm up to him more, but I also don’t think as many people would be getting the message he’s trying to put out there. I like him just the way he is. He sure isn’t boring. Too bad people don’t have a little more self awareness.
