It has been a while since I posted a fitness post, especially a Feel Good Linky post because I was rather selfish and took the summer off! Time flies by so quickly and most of the year is spent working or working hard fitness wise, so I took some time out for me and thoroughly enjoyed recharging my batteries.
However, this week my gym buddy and I are back on it and even experimenting with new exercises and a new routine. We are still concentrating on weight training and today was leg day – something that is much needed as I have noticed the deterioration in muscle build up in my legs due to taking 7 weeks off but am hoping that I will notice a difference very soon thanks to our routine.
For now I am using the New You Plan products as a quick fix to get me back into fitness and weight loss mode. I have two weeks until the Blog On Xmas conference and want to make and see a difference for then. Over the summer whilst enjoying myself, I have tried to stick to the Keto Lifestyle, which I shall be writing about soon. The Keto lifestyle is actually more enjoyable than expected, as a meat lover trips to my local butchers have increased – as has my intake of vegetables, which can only be a good thing.
The key is keep carbs down to a minimum – roughly 20g net per day to ensure your body is in the state of ketosis. Living without bread and pasta and all the savoury foods I enjoy has been much easier than expected and I’ve found myself not missing carbs at all. Expect to hear more about the Keto lifestyle soon, with plenty of pictures!
