Days 112 & 113: Sushi Sunday & Manic Monday

  Yesterday was quite the day. We had our home visit from GreySave Greyhound Adoptions. As I've mentioned several times, I've been volunteering for them for years. The ladies are very diligent about making sure everything is safe your pet. I highly respect that. They do an absolutely incredible job of matching prospective adopters with the hound that's right for them.

  The visit went great! We are still working out exactly our schedule and making sure that we can offer a wonderful home for a wonderful hound. After the visit, we loaded up my car and headed to my mom's. We were doing a family dinner there. 

  My mom and brother were getting back from the mountains with my aunt (mom's sister). It was partially to celebrate her birthday and the other part for family time. I just so happened to ask if I could bring our laundry along. Hey, saving money is saving money.

  It turned into a Sushi Sunday with a cheese platter to start. I brought over the Rebel Creamery Vanilla ice cream. It was a hit! I have been requested to purchase some on my next stop and bring it over to them. Not a problem! Just have to make sure that we don't eat it all first!

  Sushi isn't really that hard to do keto. We ordered a sashimi plate and a cucumber roll. We split them both and with the combo of the cheese we were totally full. We typically don't eat at night, but we make exceptions. Typically on weekends any form of tracking goes out the window. It has been working just fine and we stay totally keto, so I'm not going to stress.

  Monday is weigh in day. I know a lot of keto folk say ditch the scale, but I use it as a tool and no longer use it to define who I am. I want to know what's going on. I want to know my body fat percentage and lean muscle mass. I want to increase one of those numbers and decrease the other. I think the more you know the better so long as you don't let it control you.

  I lost 1.6lbs in this last week and my boyfriend lost 2lbs. I am going to recalculate our macros tonight and readjust as I've lost about 1% body fat and he's down quite a bit, so we want to make sure we adjusting accordingly.

  Work has been busy, busy, busy. I love it even if it can be a little trying at times. Looking up and seeing that all of the sudden it's 5pm and you're not show how it happened, is a good day to me. I love the environment I'm in and the people I work with. It makes for a great mix especially when things are stressful.

  Came home to find my boyfriend was making a frittata to help us with the rest of the week. It's so much easier just being able to heat up breakfast. It makes things so much smoother and less stressful. Usually I'm the one trying to get out the door. Still haven't quite mastered the consistency in the morning thing. 

  Well now it's off to calculate macros, get to bed early and start it all over again tomorrow!
