Week 7: Ketogenic Diet Experiment for Bipolar

Success!!!

This week I gained 1.6 lbs so .6 over what I lost last week. And hubby lost 1.8 lbs!!!!

So nice when it clicks and you’re getting things right.

One day last week I ate a small slice of ice cream cake and went over my carbs by a lot. I was crazy thirsty after and probably doubled my water for the day. I didn’t feel like I went out of ketosis. I wonder if the water flushed excess carbs so when I switched to carb burning it wasn’t for long or at all. I’m not a scientist so if anyone knows more please enlighten me in the comments.

My husband bought me a new Chromebook for my birthday!!! I’m so excited to use it to write each day and for blogging. Mine the keyboard was broken so I had to plug one in and it felt more like a desktop. It was frustrating to bring places.

I am so curious about this experiment. Either way it’s good I’m off sugar since that isn’t good for anyone but especially bipolar people. But how will I know if it is working or not? Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Our renter is fully moved in and our deck is painted.

I love how it turned out. Our backyard is becoming my own Oasis little by little. .

Also I have been walking more. I was walking once a week but I was sore every time. I decided I will walk 6 days a week if I can to build up endurance. I have a couple of friends who will join me which is way more fun. My girls come home tired and my baby is right ready for bed.

Hubby has been working out every night and is up to 4 pull ups. He is so strong for his weight. I’m always impressed. He also does push-ups and dips and l sits.

Until next week!
