Back into the zone! I’ve been staying up later than I’d normally like to which is impacting my sleep this whole week…. coupled with the workout I had at Crossfit this morning, left me feeling pretty beat all day.
Looking back at my food log, I realized that I’ve been so focused on eating more fats that I kind of forgot all about eating vegetables, so I made a conscious effort to eat more today. In fact all of my carbs today came from veggies! I’m jumping on the “eat a crap ton of vegetable” bandwagon that I read about here.
Ketones are lower than I expected, especially since previously when I engaged in such intense activity my ketones the following day were almost always more than 1.0 mmol. These past few days I’ve been eating a lot of homemade bone broth, so I wonder if there’s something there that’s been affecting me.
In today’s crossfit session we started with a warmup including spiderman’s, inchworms, arm circles, and hip circles. I really hate inchworms! My shoulders kept getting super fatigued just supporting my weight. During the weight portion we went over shoulder presses, push presses, and push jerks. A lot of compound movements that I’ve never done before, so it felt pretty new and I had to see it a couple times and try it a few times before sort of getting it.
Macros were great today, all carbs came from veggies. I felt pretty satiated all day and I’m going to try to keep this break down at least for the rest of the week.
Good diet + Good workout should = higher ketones. Forecast: 1.0 mmol tomorrow.
