My Keto Journey

Week 2


If you missed the kick off post on my keto journey, check out Week 1! Last week I lost 4 pounds!

This week was great! I didn’t lose as much as I hoped to, but I’m sticking with it and doing more reading to make sure I’m eating right. I also starting exercising more towards the end of week 1 and I hope to maintain that as well as increase my exercise as I go.

I’m walking an average of 2.5 miles per day, but I’d like to maintain 3 miles per day. I use my iwatch to track my walking progress with the exercise app. I just set it to “Open Goal Outdoor Walk” and hit pause when I’m done with my morning walk. When I go on my afternoon walk I hit resume so that it tracks all my miles as one walk. There are lots of ways to track it, but this is what I’ve been doing for over a year now.

I also downloaded an app called SweatCoin. It keeps up with your steps and rewards you with “sweat coins” for your progress. You can spend your sweat coins in the app on stuff like gift cards, energy bill credits, Tidal music, rocks box gift cards, electronics, and more! This is really motivating for me because I like free stuff and I’m already walking, so why not get some cool perks too!

I didn’t lose as much during week 2 as I thought I would. Maybe that’s because I made keto cookies, or maybe it’s because losing weight gets harder with age. Either way, I’m sticking with it and hoping to see some changes in week 3!

My progress:

  • Down 6 pounds
  • BMI is down 1 point
