Good Visit

Good Visit [Livermore] When I was a kid, my family and I would go to A’s games almost weekly. It was a quick drive into Oakland and very affordable for us to get some seats, hot dogs and soda. Those are some of my favorite memories. Well my traitorous family switched sides after I moved…

Ketogenic Days 15 and 16

Ketogenic Days 15 and 16 The weight coming off has many benefits. Like getting my mile time when running down to 8:30. Still want to see 7:XX for my mile time, but 8:30 is not bad when I started at 13+. Also it’s better than sitting on the couch binge watching Science Fiction and munching…

Ketogenic Day 10-14

Ketogenic Day 10-14 I am Down 10lbs. since starting 14 days ago! We have made a habit out of shopping and cooking together to prepare our food for the week. It’s been amazing to do this as a couple. It’s brought us closer together and it sets us up for success during the week. My…

Ketogenic Day 8 And 9

Ketogenic Day 8 And 9 We are getting into the swing of things. Hunger is way less noticeable. In fact it’s hard to finish meals because we feel so satiated. I grabbed some Ketostix today to test whether or not we are in Ketosis. The answer is a huge yes. On the scale given I…

Back To School 2017

Back To School Time moves so very fast sometimes, the things I remember doing last year, are here again. The vineyards around our home are once again being prepared for harvest, the horses are restless with the heat and the same events that filled my calendar last year are appearing again. It seems like just…

Ketogenic Days 5-7

Ketogenic Days 5-7 Days 5-7 have been really, really great. Friday night, day 5, I spent 7:00PM – 12:30AM with my wife at her work. She is a Charge Nurse at the Children’s Hospital in Surgery, so I hung out in her office and did some work and when she was able to come to…

Ketogenic Day Four

Ketogenic Day Four The theme for today. I am sick of the food I am eating. I chose an easy and low budget meal plan so that I could prep it all in one evening and not have to think about it during the week. That part has been great, but it’s basically the same…

Ketogenic Day Three

Ketogenic Day Three Today was a rest day, aside from a 1.5 mile run in the evening. No CrossFit, which seems to work well for my schedule. I also am making a significant change and increasing my calories from 1200-1300 and making that 1600-1800. For my activity level and my weight, 1200 is way too…

Ketogenic Day Two

Ketogenic Day Two Today was even tougher than yesterday. Feeling the withdrawal from carbs and sugar big time. The hunger, which I am told goes away, is very hard to ignore. It kept me awake most of the night last night. It was not as much of a problem for the 8:00 AM CrossFit Class…

Ketogenic Day One

Ketogenic Day One Day one has been really TOUGH! A part of this lifestyle is eating within an 8 hour window and not eating for 16 hours. So 11-7 each day is when I am able to eat. That’s the tough part. I felt a lot of hunger and I feel a huge craving for…

Keto Diet Kickoff

Ketogenic Diet Kickoff A friend at work is doing the Keto diet and is having a lot of success. He says 5 weeks in and he is still losing 4-5 pounds a week, which is really great. I tried this diet years ago when I still lived at home and I remember it did work…
