Welcome back everyone and happy Monday. A brand new week to start fresh and finally go get your goals.
So let’s dive in, grab your coffee or drink or in my case water today and let’s get started.
First off, today is the perfect weather for blogging, it’s raining and cold and I found the creatively is flowing through me. I’m actually writing right now while working out(treadmill). I grab my phone and just started writing while warming up to work on my glutes. I couldn’t let go what I wanted to talk about today and of course, I didn’t want to forget it.
Today, I will be talking about my fitness journey. Right now, I’m drinking Pruvit ketones, and my workout and nutrition are by a wonderful trainer who inspires me everyday Christy, the creator of createmefit. You should 100% go check her out. She keeps me motivated and plans my workout every Sunday for the whole week so I know when I go to the gym what equipment I’m using and what I’m working out today. She also helps with my nutrition plan and how many calories I should consume.
Let’s talk about Pruvit and their wonderful products Ketones. The drinks put you in Ketosis in 59 minutes by putting therapeutic ketones in the body. Since I started drinking the ketones at the end of December, they helped me with my mood, my energy level, my cravings (hadn’t craved pop since January, or any junk food), and my mental focus is now sharper. Plus the fat loss is amazing and added a bonus.
Today, I’m doing a 60 hr fasting by Pruvit. This would be my fourth 60 hr fasting in four months. What is the 60-hour reboot, basically it’ a kit that Pruvit provides that will help you reset your metabolism by reprogramming your genes to run on fat for fuel. By doing the 60-hour fasting, you engage your body to use fat as an energy source while gradually shifting into Keto Adaptation.
My reboot kit this month came with
- 3 Keto//Kalm (2 Chai and 1 Honey Cinnamon)
- 4 Better//Broth ( 2 Salted Caramel and 2 French Onion)
- 4 Nat Raspberry Lemonade (2 charged and 2 caffeine free)
- 10 Signal Capsules
So far, I already had my chai tea last night while watching Game of Thrones (OMG that episode) and this morning had a raspberry drink and 2 capsules and then worked out at the gym for an hour. I’m not hungry at all, more like I want to snack while writing but I know that I’m not hungry and that’s mine weakness. Every time I watch tv or doing work, all I want is to have a snack. With this 60 hour fast, I learn so much about my body and mind. I learn about when I’m hungry, I’m actually thirsty or that my mind is actually tricking me in thinking I’m hungry. I learn about my cravings and how to stop my mind to sabotage me for reaching my goals.
You are probably wondering, does this mean I do the Keto diet. The answer is no, I know my body needs carbs but I do it smartly. I do a food diary every day and track my macros. I know I need carbs but after 1pm, no more carbs for me. My supper basically includes protein and vegetables, that it. I do Not eat after 6pm. After supper which is usually 5pm for me is my last meal of the day. I don’t eat after that. I just drink my water for the rest of the day and around 7pm, I take caffeine free Ketone in my water.
I know that this drink won’t magically take off the 80 pounds that I want to lose but it will help achieve that goal, so far I lost 45 pounds (another 35 to lose) since starting this fitness journey but that also includes the workout every single day. I don’t take a break from the gym, even on a rest day, I’m walking for 30 mins or an hour. That also includes changing my diet. If you think eating bad foods and drinking the ketones will help you in your weight loss, I’m here to tell you no. You need to change your diet and the drinks will help you lose the fat loss but it won’t help you achieve that goal you want. The drinks help me want to achieve that goal, the drinks help me feel better, the drinks help me focus on my goal, and the drinks help me gave me the energy to go work out every day so I can achieve my goal.
Once I achieve my goal that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop drinking my drink, that doesn’t mean I get to go back to bad habits, that doesn’t mean I get to stop going to the gym. This is longterm health and fitness journey that I will be doing for the rest of my life and corporate to my kid’s life so they will be on health and fitness for their life. I want to be a role model for my kids so they will know how to stay healthy and fit. So they will never have to worry about the struggles of bad health.
I was going to talk about my workouts but this blog post is already long. I get so fired up about health and fitness, due to how important it is for your body. I didn’t realize how important health and fitness is to the body until I started my journey.
Well, that is it for today folks.
I hope you have a great day and happy Monday. Go chase your dreams.
