It’s been a while…

I’ve been off and on my keto journey (mostly off) for the past two years. I’m restarting the journey today with new purpose and new focus.

In April 2019, I left a high stress job that was taking more toll on my mental and physical health than I wanted to admit to. Since then, I have found other employment and other focus than my career.

2020 was a hard year for everyone with the pandemic and everything else that was going on. I spent most of it eating what I wanted because it felt like, at some times, that was all I could control. Because of that, I’ve gained back almost every bit of what I lost when I was living a keto lifestyle. The end of 2020 saw me focusing on skin care, beauty, and trying to be more positive about life. I feel like my stress is at a better level now and I’m ready to focus on some health and fitness goals. I also started a cooking stream with a friend across the sea. This has also helped direct my focus to keto recipes and cooking.

Today starts my renewed keto journey. This picture represents where I am at today. I’m going to keep this report updated weekly.
Speaking of my cooking stream, I’ll be doing that today at 12:30pm EST and doing our meal prep for the whole week. Please join me at twitch.tv/zukarlyn if you can. I’d love for you to stop by and chat as I cook and talk about my keto lifestyle.

My goal is to continue posting recipes here and also some videos so you can see me demonstrate how I make them. Thank you for being a part of my journey.

Here’s our meal plan this week:

Breakfast and Lunch

  • KetoChow for me
  • Keto Coffee for the hubby

Snacks:

  • ZipFizz (I drink one per day first thing in the morning to get essential vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes)
  • Mixed flavors of peanuts from Carolina Peanut Company
  • Pepperoni Slices with Cheddar and Pepper Jack Slices
  • Whisps
  • Keto Fudge

Dinners:

I won’t be tracking any macros this week. I’m working on eating intuitively and listening to what my body needs (and staying away from keto flu).
