No birthday cake for me!
But 27 candles in my Eggs Benedict with bacon, halloumi and mushrooms right before the man of my dreams proposed to me! And I said YES! 💍
What a whirlwind of a weekend! Still on cloud 9 but I have returned to my normal diet today of meat and fat bombs and lots of water after many champagnes were had!🥂
You guys suggested you wanted to see more workouts so here was my leg workout yesterday!
If you don’t understand or don’t know what an exercise is, please DM me and I will happily explain or send a quick video!
Also, pick your weights carefully, if you wish to know what I was using also DM and I can tell you! Happy lifting! 💪🏼
I make a point of eating salmon 2x per week. It includes a bit of variety in my meats and it’s full of so many good things! Omega 3s and potassium which we seem to lack on a ketogenic diet.
I always, always feel good after eating it! It just feels so good for my body!
Yummy afternoon snack of bacon with half an avo, crumbled feta, lemon and rock salt 😋
Keto on the go!
When everyone else is eating crackers and chips with dip and cheeses we make our own Keto biscuits and take them with us!
These are just a basic fathead dough without cream cheese.
140g mozzarella, 80g almond meal, 1 egg and added fresh garlic and fresh parsley from our garden 😋
I’ve been noticing some pretty amazing changes in my body just recently and I think it’s time I shared how proud I am. ~
I don’t often get comments from people on how I look cos everyone I know and hang around with knows I’m always in the gym and eating well.
Ive always been a small person and when I’m not body confident (which is most of the time) I cover myself up with baggy or comfy clothes, so I guess it’s hard for anyone to really take a good look at me.
Also, because I see myself every single day, it’s hard to notice small changes here and there and we are all our own worst critics... ~
So what I’m really trying to say here is, it’s about time I gave myself and my body some credit for the past few months!! I’ve been working really hard in the gym again and kept my diet on track (even with a few social events here and there, which I am most proud of). I’ve all but given up wine and chocolate (my biggest weaknesses in previous years) and hormonally I’m the best I’ve been since giving up contraception.
I’m noticing more toned muscles, less bloating and a huge drop in body fat.
The hard work really does start paying off and no, I don’t need outside validation from others to know how well I’m doing.
I can simply feel it in myself and now I am starting to SEE it in myself 💕
I ran out of salmon and didn’t want to head to the shops today so eggs to the rescue!
Bacon plus scrambled eggs with mushrooms and cheese.
The sauce on top is a mix of sour cream and siracha sauce 😋😋
Dinner for the last two nights- grilled salmon fillet with butter and 2 rashers of bacon.
I’m trying to keep my carbs from veggies close to my training time which is usually mid morning. So my dinners will still remain mostly carnivore style for now.
I’m sitting at about 17g net carbs and 26g total carbs per day for now 👍🏼
I made these keto chocolate mug cakes last night from @lowcarbyum
They were too dry though because I didn’t use enough butter. But still yummy and I also added a dollop of natural peanut butter to the center of each 😋
These fat bombs are literally the bomb! I don’t know if it’s just me that loves them or they are actually good, someone needs to make them and tell me! Once defrosted they have a consistency like mousse 😍
250g room temp cream cheese
6 tbsp peanut butter
3 tbsp coconut oil
2 heaped tsp cacao powder
Stevia to taste
Blend all together with an electric beater! Just make sure the cream cheese/peanut butter/coconut oil is all melted or warmish.
Set in freezer and defrost before eating!
I’ve been a little under the weather this past weekend so I made up this taco bowl yesterday and soooo good!
Hit exactly the right spot! 🇲🇽 Grass fed beef mince with Mexican seasoning, sour cream mixed with siracha sauce, avocado mixed with garlic powder, grated cheddar cheese #mmmmmm
This truffle & sage infused steak was so yummy!
I love truffle so when I saw it at the butchers I almost jumped at it!! 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
Started my day off with this beauty 🍳 🥓
Egg & bacon sammich with fathead flatbread, avo and teensy bit of Camembert cheese 🧀
Keen as a bean to get back into carnivore tomorrow though, my stomach has not coped with this weekends events at all 🙃
Recipe for flatbread;
55g almond meal
1 Small Egg
Garlic powder to taste
Melt cheese in microwave, add almond meal & seasonings. Mix until well combined. Add egg and mix again. Use two sheets of baking paper to roll dough into a big square. Bake for 10-15mins at 180 degrees.
Makes 4 pieces 🍞
Today is the day! 🤗
September 28th was the date I set myself 2 months ago to achieve some goals and feel better about myself before summer ☀️ 1 month strict carnivore and 1 month keto-carnivore.
What can I say? What an amazing experience and aside from the physical results, I’ve seen many emotional and even hormonal changes too!
4kg down ⤵️
4cm off waist
4cm off chest/back
2.5cm off high leg
1cm off arm
Most of these results I actually saw within the first two weeks of carnivore 😱
My cycle was the best it’s ever been by month 2. No pain leading up, no mood swings, comfortable during.
I’ve been incredibly energetic through the days, sleeping better and coping better with less sleep(I wake up early for work). My strength has increased and I’m now pumping out 5-6 workouts each week easily. I LOVE training again.
I feel more in control of my anxiety and absolutely no depression at all 🙅🏼♀️
ALSO, you can see my abs! AND this is after drinking a substantial amount of water, a coffee and eating 2 lamb chops!
Post workout lunch today! Salmon fillet with butter, scrambled eggs and chorizo. We had a wheel of camembert in the fridge so I ate a little with my chorizo! So good 🤤
Pork loin chop & crackle!
I’ve gone off beef a little the last few days so thought I’d change it up a bit with pork again and salmon. I’ve also treated myself to some haloumi as snack!
