|breakfast lunch and dinner|
I met with Bob soon after I got home and managed to lug the perishables up the front steps and put them in the fridge. He showed up at my house early, which annoyed me, but then I have been incredibly irritable on this diet.
After the meeting, I had a cup of genmaicha tea, and I actually felt pretty good sitting there in the chair, so I ignored the heaviness in my limbs and allowed my mind to insist that we go to the park and at least try to run. So I laced up the ankle braces and the dogs were ecstatic, since they were wondering what was going on with me. We drove to our usual spot in the Wissahickon, I put my headphones on, and I have NO IDEA how I did it, but with the help of some good tunes I ran with them for over an hour. No I did not feel good. And I did actually did walk up a couple of steep rocky hills that normally I run up, but somehow I got the job done and I was really proud of myself.
My ketones tested at .4, which sucks, no wonder I feel so weak today. The word I keep repeating is keto-adaptation. I just have to get through this misery, and hopefully before the end of the two weeks I will feel better. Continuing to exercise on a ketogenic diet, despite how difficult it is, is one of the ways you can shorten the time it takes to adapt supposedly. That and keeping your protein intake moderate (around 20%) and your fat intake high, all of which I'm doing. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
