Welcome to my personal reflections. I've had such a busy summer that it really shut me down as far as time to simply reflect on my own eating behaviors. Basically I just ate...all keto, but with no control!
So, I've come to process this situation and the TRUTH of the matter is I've lost control, let it slip through my fingers but even more important, I'm OUT OF KETOSIS...It's NOT from a cheat it is because I over-eat!
I know I'm not alone. Others have come to this place of losing control of their food all over again while on a ketogenic diet. It's because we're eating too much and get ourselves out of ketosis, and we end up struggling with food all over again. That struggle is real!
So, I have been saying for the longest time, "I removed controlling foods and got my control back"...but recently I've been more out of control than I've been in the last 35 months. So, what am I doing about this you might wonder?
I'm not in denial, and I refuse to hide. I'm being open and honest. As a leader I want to be as real as I can be. So this is me being real. I am really here, out of control...or I was. I am on day 3 of change...and can I tell you I feel so much better...I feel empowered this morning!
How to regain control "Jess style"...
#1 I have a diet buddy again, someone I report to every single day.
#2 I am recording all my food again, watching my intake carefully. Eating only what I planned and not over eating ANYTHING
#3 I closed the kitchen and shut down that grazing behavior that use to linger into my nights.
I've made KETOSIS my primary goal...NO MATTER WHAT it is to be sought and valued above all else!!!
