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

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.

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.

 

 

Confused – Part 2

I saw him tonight and I’m confused again. He has been looking at me a lot. You don’t look at someone you don’t like like this. We were standing close to each other too. As I was picking up my bag and beach towel and was ready to leave the beach bar area, he was observing my every move. I noticed that as soon as I left, he left the beach bar area too.

I don’t know what’s up, but I might keep an eye on how he behaves. I didn’t really look at him much, not after that text I sent last night. I completely ignored him tonight. I usually do. I guess from outside it looks like I’m the one that doesn’t give a fuck.

His eyes on me felt good though. I missed his attention. I crave it.
I can’t look at him for too long, I always feel like I’m getting sucked in.

I don’t know how to explain what I was feeling, I just wanted it to continue and I wanted more. As I was leaving, fantasies in my mind started playing…

Weekend Update in short

Friday

I went to the best beach party I’ve ever been to, had a blast, met a lot of people & grabbed my guy’s ass when I drunk & then hid behind my new friend.

Saturday

I enjoyed an entire day at the beach. He was there too for the most part of the day. Saw a fortune teller & she said to not overthink things & just have fun & be playful when it comes to current love life. She also said the decision is all mine since I already have this person – that it was just up to me to say yes or no & lead the way.

Sunday Funday

I arrived late at the party but it was absolutely happening when I got there. Quickly caught up on drinking, met new people & got some free drinks. He was there too. At first he appeared to be having fun but later was more chill, dunno why.

As for me, I was on another level. The entire evening was lit for me & even my body was burning with crazy wild fire of desire for him, as he stood a few feet away from me. We pretend we don’t know each other there. And I absolutely love the secrecy.

I don’t know why I’m feeling amazing right now, but this Sun in Leo phase is defo affecting me for the better. Looking forward to my long holiday starting next week & of course as always the weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ex Lover Update

Saturday I went to the beach bar & my ex lover guy wasn’t there. I noticed that my Saturday was different without him. His friend, who is my friend again, who also fancies me, asked me what was going on between us & if we are still seeing each other & all that. I told him that we weren’t together for months now, but the way he was responding back, his gestures & replies just told me that they have been discussing me together. He also asked me about other guys & told me that he saw me make out with that 1 guy that 1 Saturday. He also asked me if I slept with that guy (again I dunno if he is asking for himself or for his friend) & of course I said that nothing happened between us besides that kissing session that 1 Saturday.

Saturday afternoon was just weird vibes & a lot of people, the regulars weren’t there, and the music wasn’t great. It was this monotonous repetitive sounds and beats that didn’t have much life to it, so of course my energy was down a bit. Luckily my guy friends came over there & I chilled with them for a bit & we all enjoyed a drink & talked.

Later after they left, I got a bit bored & got ready to go to the Music Festival for some awesome House music. When I got there, I saw my guy & was pretty happy to find him there. He said hi to me. His friend was there too now. We walked over together to my ex lover’s table and some of his close guy friends I hadn’t met yet were there too. Now things got a bit weird, because his friend said something like “your ex boyfriend is here (pointing at my guy) and your new boyfriend is here” he meant himself, as a joke of course coz they do that apparently, but it wasn’t funny & since I didn’t know the guys at the table, I didn’t want to to make any comments.

Neither one of us denied that he was my ex. But thing got even more weird when his friend said that I was his girlfriend, as a joke again. My guy’s reaction wasn’t good. He raised his voice & said “YOUR GIRLFRIEND?” & repeated it again, and as he was saying this you could tell that he was a bit pissed off & wasn’t happy about it. I’m not sure how he didn’t get that this was of course just a joke, especially since his friend told me that he always does that to him with girls he goes out with. I said something like “guys please just stop” coz it was embarrassing & didn’t make me look god regardless if it was true or not. You see I don’t screw the crew – I have a code: Pick 1 guy & all his friends & co-workers are off limits. We talked about this before & I told him about it. I then walked off with his friend & told him that I didn’t like that & because I saw my guy looking our way I gestured with my hands too so he knows I wasn’t happy about what just went down.

Anyways the Music Festival was a blast & I had a great time there. On Sunday he was at the beach bar and I saw him look my way & I looked away, but then looked back at him & he was still looking at me, so I looked at him too. It was one of those ok I’m interested in this person again a bit sort of looks for both of us. Sunday was a bit weird for me but it was still fun. I somehow managed to get a new love interest, not on my side, but a guy interested in me that I’m totally not interested in.

On Monday night I had a giant glass of red wine & texted him late in the evening saying that we should have fun again sometime. On Tuesday since I didn’t get a morning reply, I was starting to think that I won’t get one & that was ok too. Just as I completely moved on from it, I got his text at lunch break from him that he would like that too. This made me excited which is nice. This time around it’s just the icing on my cake, whereas before he was my cake. So I think things will be different for me now since I’m already happy. I am very much looking forward to seeing him again. I think we will have a lot of fun together. Stay tuned for more 🙂

 

Thursday Night

Last night I had a glass of red again & unlike Wednesday night I did not text my ex lover. As usual he liked a bunch of my Instagram pics (weekly thing) that usually happens on Monday morning around 9am or Tuesday at the latest, but this week was different. He is either very busy with work or a new person in his life or both.

It’s F R I D A Y & I’m excited for this weekend! Tomorrow morning I have a 10am workout class to go to, then swimming, lunch (at the beach) more swimming & then a music festival with my friends and I’m not sure yet but I might even go to the after party. Just gonna go with the flow & if the flow is good, I continue.

Sunday Funday again beach & music festival – should be fun!

Wishing everyone a very happy & fun weekend ahead! XOXO

 

 

 

In Love with Saturdays

This past Saturday was a blast! I had 1 hell of a time at the beach bar party with my friends. Saturdays have become the highlight of my week as Sunday Funday starts pretty late & I can’t stay out late as I wake up early for work Monday morning.

So I narrowed it down to just 1 guy & I don’t want to do anything about it because I like him. The other 1 I just see as a friend. And then this new guy has been driving me crazy & making me angry coz he just shows up there without even texting me… I think he thought we were in a relationship so I had to text him saying I love my single life way too much & don’t wanna change that. He played it cool & said he just wants to go out on dates and have fun, and I said I already have someone, so I think he will leave me alone now. – Relief!

So now I’m very single and nothing has been happening apart from a couple of shared kisses with 2 guys I’m absolutely not interested in. One of them was the above new guy & the other was some new German guy I met. Luckily he’s out of the country for 2 weeks so I won’t see him. There was another accent guy, we just exchanged numbers, absolutely nothing happened, and he has been texting me a lot too.

Not to self: Stop telling guys they have cool accents, coz they take it very wrong. They think you are instantly in love with them. No more of that!

I’m very much looking forward to this upcoming weekend and my full day at the beach this Saturday.

I have been working out every day, completed 1 month & I gotta say I’m exhausted because I’m not getting enough sleep. I gotta work on fixing that. Would like 8 hours every night if possible. I’ve been very busy lately too which makes the time fly by fast.

The irony is during winter I was complaining to my friends of lack of love life and now it’s crazy, I feel overwhelmed and want to be left alone most of the time. But 1 of my close friends said just enjoy it! So I will make the best of it. Relax and enjoy – Looking forward to the weekend XOXO
