Scintillating Six

So here I am, day 6.Ā  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 budgeĀ at all.Ā  I’m eating a healthy 1,500 calories a day and I’ve scaled back my exercise and the weight is still coming off.Ā  WOOHOO!!!

 

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

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

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

 

If the thought of eggnog grosses you out then this recipe is not for you.Ā  šŸ˜‰

Measure out 3/4 cup of half & half into a personal blender.Ā  Add two eggs.Ā  (Raw, yes raw.Ā  I’m badass like Rocky so this doesn’t bother me at all.Ā  If it bothers you, you can buyĀ pasteurized.)Ā  Add in 1/4 tsp nutmeg and a couple shakes of pumpkin pie spice.Ā  You’ll also want a packet ofĀ 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.Ā  It tastes decently close to real eggnog.Ā  Of course, minus the high fructose corn syrup and gut-busting carageenan.Ā  The spices give it a lot of flavor and add antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Keto on, my friends!
