What an amazing day! I'm taking advantage of the sunshine and listening to uni lectures. It's supposed to be raining tomorrow 😭
😍😍😍 Beautiful weather and an iced coffee - perfection!
Making some black coffee which will be going into the freezer to chill before I add some HWC and blitzing with ice 😍
Getting my bone broth on this morning with some added pink himalayan salt. I woke up feeling a bit lethargic, with a slight headache - this did the trick! Salt is my bestie 😝
Fasting check-in time! So, I'm at hour 154 (day 6) of my extended fast and I have dropped another 700g bringing my total loss to 5kg 😄 I've been waking up at 3am the past couple of nights and tossing and turning for an hour or so before getting back to sleep. It's been a little annoying, but nothing to warrant breaking my fast. Other than that I'm going strong 💪
Had to buy a new bra yesterday with a smaller sized cup and now it looks like I may need to purchased some new jeans 😂 I don't even have to undo them to take them off haha. The last photo is close to where I started (I'd already lost 5kg when that photo was taken).
My new llama water cup 😍 @kmartaus
coming through with the cute tumblers.
130hr in 😁 I'm down another 400g this morning bringing my total loss to 4.3kg in 5 days. Still doing well, although I'm feeling lethargic this morning. However, shark week is due tomorrow so that's pretty standard for me.
It's done! Beef bone broth is a success - it tastes amazing! 😍 Yay!!
Recipe in my story and highlights (Electrolytes)
I'm making bone broth! 🤞 this actually works and taste decent 😂
Today’s C H E A T lunch 😍 Please note that all non keto items where for our children. We aren’t really cheating, we just call it a cheat meal as we likely consumed more calories than usual. Bowl in the middle is our homemade dip which consists of cream cheese, diced bacon, diced up pickled jalapeño & some jalapeño juice, mix it all up & heat in the oven 👌 SO good!
106 hours into an extended fast! Dropped another 700g bringing my 4 day loss to 3.9kg. I'm still feeling good and I'm noticing that I'm sleeping less.
The boredom is real when you aren't eating! I need to study, but I'm procrastinating now my assignments are finished. I need to find a hobby I think 😂
Upside to fasting though, my skin is really clear! But, I scratched my darn cheek this morning, oops hahaha
These Gluten free healthy low carb crackers are pretty easy to make and taste absolutely delicious especially when you are after a bit of a neutral flavored cracker which would be perfect with cheese platters, appetizers and to use in your favorite dip.
Thank you low carb life for leading me to amazing real unadulterated food like this or I'd still be buying my crackers from the supermarket. Almond meal/almond flour, an egg, a little olive oil and some salt is all that is needed for this delicious recipe. You can add a couple of tablespoons of poppy seeds or sesame seeds for a bit more of a lavosh style cracker variation, like the crackers featured.
You can find the recipe at https://ketohh.com/low-carb-healthy-crackers/

Day 4 today and I am currently 3.2kg down since starting this extended fast ☺️ 84 hours in and going strong 💪
Feeling so damn good, feeling energetic and feeling happy. Today I finally cracked and reached my lowest figure to date with weightloss. I got up and not only walked the dogs but smashed it at the gym and upped my weights ( say what???). AND managed to score at the supermarket 3kg worth of cheese for $16. I'm absolutely cheering today everything is coming up Milhouse 🙆♀️🙆♀️.

Popped some pink himalayan salt in my herbal tea but I was still feeling off, so I've been picking at granuals slowly 😂 it's oddly satisfying and I feel better hahaha 🤷♀️
Starting day 3 of my extended fast and woke up to a big loss - I'm 2.7kg down in just 2 days 😱 the best thing about being keto prior to attempting this fast is that I am not experiencing hunger. I typically feel good, although I had a slight headache yesterday afternoon so I added some salt to my water and it passed.
I supplement with these two for my magnesium and potassium. This magnesium hasn't caused ANY gastric upset like the last ones did 🙌 and the potassium powder is tasteless so I can add it to my water.
A nice little reminder to get out of my head and focus on why I follow a Ketogenic lifestyle and what I am hoping to accomplish during my extended fast ❤️
We live in a world of instant gratification, but the path to weight loss and health isn't one that we can obtain without putting in the effort. It's a long-game and sometimes I need a reminder that I'm not deprived or missing out and I'm actually happier and healthier now than I was - I have to shift my perspective.
If you need to refocus or are recommitting to your Keto journey, you have my support!
Oh look, only 700 hours to go 😂
Today is an awesome day 😄 I love it when @iherb
delivers the goods haha. Just in time for my extended fast!
I also grabbed some SF icey poles for the kid from @woolworths_au
I've been reading about autophagy and extending fasting and I'm thinking of giving it a red hot go. If you've done one and have any advice or suggestions to make the process easier, let me know!
for me is from my daughters 1st and 2nd birthdays while on our annual holiday.
In the past 12 months she grew and I shrunk 😂 I think her journey has been a bit easier than mine though, but we’re a great support for each other 😜
No matter where you are in your journey, keep fighting to be the person you want to be. Sure, I’ve come a long way, but I still have a long way to go; my goals are forever changing, and that’s a beautiful thing. The day I stop learning, challenging and bettering myself, be it mentally emotionally or physically, will be the day I die.
And I hope Emi can one day appreciate the value in that, that her mummy can chase her, go on swings or slides, play hide and seek, actively have FUN with her, because if I kept living the way I was, it wouldn’t have been a possibility for much longer, and that just wouldn’t have been fair for her, for me to have that choice, and ignore it.
Well I didn’t have much to say until I started writing. And as usual it just all pours out 😂 if you’ve made it this far you’re a fucking legend 😘
