Scintillating Six

So here I am, day 6.  I stepped on the scale, guys, and I AM DOWN 3 POUNDS!!!

This is a mucho big deal because before I would have to kill myself in the gym and create a significant calorie deficit to get the scale to budge at all.  I’m eating a healthy 1,500 calories a day and I’ve scaled back my exercise and the weight is still coming off.  WOOHOO!!!

 

Sorry for the toothpaste splattered mirror.  But you can see I’m looking a bit slimmer.  It’s more noticeable in real life.  My tummy is way flatter and I’m looking a bit slimmer all over.

Other than that, I’m just feeling really good.  There is a new “quietness” in my mind.  At night I used to feel like I needed a glass of wine or two to calm down.  I feel pretty calm and happy all day now.  My mind isn’t always going.  I feel a really wonderful “chill” feeling.  I can see this diet being a great alternative to medication in treating anxiety.

I made up a recipe.  This is keto-nog.  20180112_095432

 

If the thought of eggnog grosses you out then this recipe is not for you.  😉

Measure out 3/4 cup of half & half into a personal blender.  Add two eggs.  (Raw, yes raw.  I’m badass like Rocky so this doesn’t bother me at all.  If it bothers you, you can buy pasteurized.)  Add in 1/4 tsp nutmeg and a couple shakes of pumpkin pie spice.  You’ll also want a packet of erythritol and/or stevia and a splash (1/4 tsp) of vanilla extract.

Blend up that bad boy and chug it while simultaneously feeling some of the spirit of Christmas and Rocky.

This drinks comes in at 7 grams of carbs, 18 grams easily digestible protein, and 30 grams of fat.

It’s great for a post workout shake.  It tastes decently close to real eggnog.  Of course, minus the high fructose corn syrup and gut-busting carageenan.  The spices give it a lot of flavor and add antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Keto on, my friends!
