Keto Week 5 | A Change of Plans

It’s not a weigh in week, but I did weigh myself. 0 lbs lost, but 0 lbs gained.

I’m suspecting that might be caused by a certain womanly visitor, though, so I’m not too bothered by it.

I have been working on tweaking my macros just a little bit after watching some Keto Savage videos. At the very least, I have been working hard to reach my calorie goals. I generally only eat 2 meals a day, and most days I have a hard time eating enough food. I know, you should eat when you’re hungry, but there are some days when I don’t even hit 1000 calories. I’m all about eating at a deficit, but that’s just plain malnutrition and insanity. I’ve been lowering my protein and upping my fats just a little bit, and so far it’s been okay. I have gotten well over my previous goal of 1200 cal/day, and am hitting between 1400-1600, with more fats.

All that aside, my husband and I are officially trying to conceive baby #2! We had planned to start trying in April, but had to clear up some health issues before we felt comfortable doing so.

I found the low carb diet during my first time trying to conceive. I researched so many things to help our odds, especially after having multiple miscarriages, and this was one of those suggestions. More healthy fats in the diet, less sugar. It makes sense.

My weight loss journey is absolutely continuing throughout the process. The more I lose, the more it helps our chances! So I’m not exactly changing the plan…more so just adding a new component to it.

I’m excited for the possibilities the future holds for our family right now! It seems like everything is falling into place 🙂

Here’s a word spew recap of this post, if you’re interested:
