The Next 3 Months

SEPTEMBER

I recently started the Ketogenic Diet and so far I’m just blown out of the water by how this way of eating makes you feel. It all started when I was watching this little show called My Diet is Better Than Yours and 1 Diet stood out the most to me on there: The Wild Diet.

I was particularly curious about the “fatty coffee” also knows as “keto coffee” and “bulletproof coffee“. That’s pretty much how my research started. To see what that is just go to Youtube and type in any one of those 3 names and tons of videos will pop up with recipes. Basically it’s good quality coffee + good quality butter + good quality MCT oil mixed together, and this is pretty much your new morning beverage.

My first thoughts were butter in coffee? Whaaaat? But I tried it and it’s my fave coffee beverage now and it really does make you feel limitless.

Ok, maybe not to that extent haha but I’m telling you this is bonkers! Recently I had very bad energy issues – by 2pm I was passing out at work. I couldn’t focus, my head was down at my desk, I wanted to pass out for real. It was affecting my work, I was becoming more agitated, less interested in my work, and more bored really, and most of the all when my energy depleted so fast and so low after lunch, I couldn’t focus on anything but myself.

Because I’ve had issues with my iron levels before, I went and got that checked out and it turned out my iron levels were finally normal this year, improvement! But why was I feeling like I still had anemia? I was completely confused because nothing else was going on with me – I have had a full blood check up test a few months ago and nothing besides iron, red blood cells, ferritin and hemoglobin (all iron related) was off. Everything else was great! My health as far as I knew was all good, apart from this energy issue, which makes me think now that it must have been hormone related perhaps.

So I looked up this crazy coffee, and the wild diet and the keto diet etc, and I found out that carbs are the bad guy, this is why we have no energy. On Keto diet your body uses fat as energy and not sugar from carbs.

They always warned us that fats are bad, and that carbs are good when I was younger. If you actually look at old food pyramids you will notice that CARBS were on the bottom of the pyramid, which meant that we should consume them the most in our diet and then the rest. Now I believe that this is defo wrong, because back in the day we probably ate meat first, so protein and fat, and then plants and whatever we found. There were no pastries and cakes around or flour for that matter…

There is a lot more to Keto than the diagram above, and I will go into more details in another post when I share some of my resources on this specific diet. Basically it’s no Sugar or Carbs or Grains – the carb amount per day varies from person to person but it can be anything from 20g – 100g of Net Carbs and this number rises if you decide to do carb loading days later. I’m very new to this Keto Journey and I am still finding a lot about it as I go.

I have been on Keto for about a week now and it has definitely changed my energy levels like crazy! I have too much energy now. Basically I have to fix my sleeping schedule now coz it’s throwing me off a bit, all this extra energy. I took my weight and body measurements as well when I started even though I usually don’t do this, I was curious what the difference would be.

As a woman my concern was my monthly cycle and how that was gonna be, because from what I’ve read your cycle will definitely change in some way. For me I can already say the changes I’ve noticed, although I have no idea how next month will be, will wait and see. So Keto is supposed to be amazing for women that suffer from PCOS, just a heads up. Basically my boobs were sore and tender the entire week I started Keto which reminds me of these same symptoms I had (PMS) before I got on Evening Primrose Oil.

Also my ovaries were on fire, like you just feel something is going on there. I knew these were hormonal changes, I wasn’t really worried, because anytime you change your diet and way of eating, your body science internally changes along with it. I was on time this month, not early, not late, and I absolutely had NO PAIN whatsoever! This is definitely a little new for me. I always have cramps, and before I used to have bad ones… In fact I had horrible PMS earlier this year and my gyno put me on Evening Primrose Oil which (after 2 months) started working and I didn’t have sore boobs, chocolate cravings, cramps, bloating, skin breakouts or any of the other PMS issues, but I do remember when I first started taking Evening Primrose Oil, I had this same boob issue, as in they were sore and a bit painful too (hormonal change).

It’s definitely hard to eat so much more fat because recently I was watching my fat intake, not crazily but was making sure I didn’t have a lot of it. I also would have carbs for either lunch or dinner but never both, but now I’m finding out that I actually had carbs all day long because carbs are in EVERYTHING pretty much! Very frustrating.

I will keep you guys updated with my Keto Journey and weight loss and measurements and all of that. I am also about to join a gym next door as soon I won’t have my weekly Zumba classes or swimming anymore. I also want to tone and add more muscle to my body and feel stronger. Luckily the gym next door has tons of classes I can go to after work so that will be exciting!

OCTOBER

I have a really important wedding this month and I am actually in the wedding, so I’m looking at bridesmaids dresses ideas and everything, because I’m having mine custom made which will be nice. All the bridesmaids will have a ready to wear dress basically. So far we have the color and the length, and we are all allowed to have different styles so this is awesome! 2 of my closest friends are coming from London also for the wedding so I’m super excited and looking forward to this!

NOVEMBER 

I am flying off to London for 5 days. Going to do a little bit of winter sale shopping, visit my friends, enjoy the miserable grey weather 😂 you know, enjoy all the things London has to offer. I haven’t taken a trip out of the country this year, so I’m very much looking forward to this one.

I’m sure a lot more things are to come, but of course, I have no idea what they are and that’s the best part. Stay tuned for more XOXO

Update on “this guy”

I know I said I would talk about something else and don’t worry I’m about to get into that, and yes I’m still on the lookout for a new man but I also think it’s only right to keep writing updates on this past guy since there are still some updates there.

We texted almost every day this week, but just briefly. Basically he wants to see me again and told me to let him know when I’m ready for that. I said ok.

Last night I found out from his friend that he isn’t dating that girl anymore. She basically started with: “Do you know that X & Y aren’t together anymore?” “I said I don’t care.” She wanted to know what happened with us, how long it’s been going for, all the details, I already told her in short what happened via texts recently when I asked her if he’s dating that girl, so I’m not sure why she asked me again. I told her to ask him, and she said he will never tell me, and I said “Exactly!”

After that conversation I felt same as him in regards to that, as in I really didn’t wanna talk about us (again) to people. It’s nobody’s business but ours, but of course I let my closest friends know about it because what are friends for after all.

There was 1 very strange incident that happened last night that I noticed but didn’t care about – As we were sitting at the bar, drinking and talking with people, she flipped my phone cover to check the front of my phone……Who does that?? My thought was maybe she is texting with his ex girl and updating her about me, and was looking to find texts from him on my phone. You see she is friends with the recent ex, but she did also said I don’t care about her friendship recently, but I’m not sure how much of that is true.

So I’m just a bit cautious now because I don’t really know what’s going on. Maybe he and this girl broke up 3 weeks ago since she came alone to the bar last 2 Saturdays. Maybe they are in a long distance relationship now and made plans to see each other soon. I’m not sure because I haven’t asked anyone, not even him.

I did however post this as my FB status a few days ago: “I wonder if your girlfriend knows that you are still texting me – she must approve, I would too 😂” and of course I set it as a public post coz I got nothing to hide. My guess is by then they were already broken up though, but again, who knows…

That’s that for now. Next blog post will be on a lot of other things.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time for a New Man or New Project

If you look at the top right corner of my blog page you will notice a new page: The British Fuckhead

Here you will find ALL posts from Guy No 1 Experiment. Unfortunately none of them are interesting to me now since this was after we ended things & we never really started again, so I’m closing this book instead of starting a new re-read chapter.

Right now only the MAY month blog posts are there, but every day I’ll try and add 1 month. Luckily there are only 4 months so should be fast page upgrade.

Looking forward to a fresh new start. Of course now we need a new target, but meanwhile I will start updates on other goals like weight loss, diet changes, fitness changes etc…

 

 

 

Back to Normal…

I texted him…you know when you just need some lame excuse to say something so you can text in hopes of maybe making the situation better, well I tried for that & it worked because we were back to fun & flirting…

He said I was being stupid (he is referring to my Week of D R A M A post) & that I owe him one, I admit to being a bit stupid & say he owes me 1 too.

He wanted me to send him a hot photo, I said no you send, he said I’ll send if you send bla bla but I was busy so I told him I’ll surprise you which didn’t work lol then I told him I would for fucking sure if I could & left him hanging at Why can’t you?

But before that he asked where I was & I honestly should have replied with “playing checkers w/ your g/f & guess who’s winning” total inside joke relating to this August Wednesday & more details on that Wed here

Anyways back to the naughty photo. I was texting with 1 of my girlfriends & was telling her how I miss the fun sexy side of him & then came up with random hot photo idea which is also a prank in a way.

just friends.jpg

I saw these & told my friend I would order them & them take a sexy photo & send it to him. Another joke really about him saying we are just friends a few weeks ago…if he was a good boy I would totally order these below, but he doesn’t deserve! 😂😂😂

EYHO

My friend said I nave a naughty side to me, I replied the right kind of asshole bring it out of me…

Anyways I was pretty happy all night & was amazed at how quickly he could turn me on. I defo miss all the fun & sexy parts of what we used to have. Was thinking recently I wish I started blogging when this all started over a year ago coz there’s so much more to it…

If you wanna order any of the above items you can do that here: NO BRA CLUB They have a cool split installation payment plan option too.

 

 

Oh Monday…

I hate you…

Actually Monday was fine, apart from this:

I text him this morning via only app I haven’t blocked him on [Snapchat] – mainly because I didn’t even have it on my phone at the time… and I say I want us to be cool…

He is angry at me for stupid shit we went over already & honestly right now I have still overall more reason than him to be angry, but I hate anger & never see the point in holding onto to it. Last time we texted, I wanted to explode at him, but I took the higher road…

Anyways we texted morning/afternoon & he was mostly angry while I was cooler. That’s not even the issue – the issue is it’s the middle of the night & I can’t sleep coz that fuckhead & his anger is eating away at me…

I can’t get him/that off my mind. My current insomnia thoughts are, text him tomorrow/next day & ask if he wants to talk in person. I just want peace & nothing else.

 

2 weeks w/out him

I was expecting her to be gone by now, but she’s still here and it’s annoying the shit out of me to have to see her face every week.

I want to text him this coming week and tell him I want to make up. Test and see where he is at.

I’m not meeting anyone new, so I still think about him. I know I have a better chance if I text him after she leaves, but I have no idea when she is leaving.

 

Keep Calm, You have been Blocked

On Sunday I didn’t go to the beach bar & it was a great decision. We had another fight via texts & it wasn’t good. I pretty much told him to leave me the hell alone. But I’ve also had enough so I blocked him on ALL Social Media accounts and on my phone. I think he took it seriously this time…

Today he wasn’t at the beach bar which is very odd for him. Hopefully it’s because he knows I hate his guts and don’t want to see his fucking face. I saw her for 5 minutes but then she left too.

She is leaving this coming week I think so it will be nice not to see them again. I don’t think I’m going to the beach bar tomorrow. He gave me my Saturday so I’ll give him his Sunday. Feels like a bad divorce with him now and splitting the beach bar between us.

I am not sure when this anger will stop, but I don’t see it going away anytime soon. Oddly enough I do think about how nice it would be to make up with him but Iam also not gonna forgive and forget so easily this time around.

I cancelled my date today with this 25 year old child because honestly I know already this isn’t for me. I want a real man now and definitely older. I am thinking 35-40 would be a perfect age range for me.

I am looking forward to the next month. It will be the last month at the beach bar and then comes Fall. I am so done with this hot weather. Very much over it. Can’t wait for October to come. – It will be the best!
