Old People Problems

Old people have a unique set of issues. They have grey hair. They hurt themselves doing every day things. They walk kind of funny. 

All of these things are also true for me over the past two weeks. I pulled a muscle, or a group of them. How?  Was I power lifting ? No. Hurling large objects? Nope. Defeating dragons? Absolutely not. I bent over. That's it. Yes, you read that right. Bent over to help Ladybug off with her coat and there was pain and spasms and I could hardly be upright. Sad. 

I took two weeks off from working out to give me time to heal. You know that takes a while for old folks. 

Anywho, I was back on it today and took a progress shot. Eeeeekkkk. Much further than I thought. I'm so excited. I've been staying focused and so excited about the future. See for yourself.

Down With Carbs

I haven't written here in eight months. I never meant for things to go this long. My last post I was back on losing weight. I'm not sure how long I stuck with it but it couldn't have been too long. I did a couple of 5ks but I wasn't anywhere near focused on my diet. By the end of September I'd gained even more weight, tipping the scales at 261.4 aka too damn much. I did right for a week or so, dropping eight pounds in seven days. But again, I didn't stick with it. I got stressed of frustrated or some random other emotion and went right back to eating my feelings. 

What Changed 

When November rolled around I was sick of my own shit. I can't think of any other way to put it. I was tired of being fat. Tired of making excuses. Tired of epically failing at taking care of myself. I was sick of my own bs. I decided to go low carb. It seemed like the universe was pushing me in that direction. My mom, a friend and a bunch of the ladies I followed on Instagram found success with it.

I'm following a low carb, high fat (LCHF) diet and it has been a game changer. I like what I'm eating and I've been able to stay focused.  
(And I can still have Chipotle!!!!) 

Since November 10th, I've lost 15.8 pounds and I'm down 20.3 from my highest weight. My goal is to hit 175 by the end of 2016. It's doable if I stay focused. So I'm back. And on Instagram as bekeloo. 

Time to make myself a priority

About Me

I'm a 30-something wife, mom and pet parent. I've been blogging since 2004, at first solely on a blog for my friends and family. I love to write about everything. I can't say that A Bacon Flavored Life is about any one thing. If it occurs to me, it'll get posted. I write about life, love, infertility and a lot of "random".
