Day 43: Teamwork

  The saying teamwork makes the dreamwork is so true in the case of keto. Having my partner in crime be part of this journey and fully invested in this is incredible. This morning was a weigh in day. I lost 1.2lbs & 0.3% body fat. He lost 0.8lbs. He hasn't gone one week without losing! I've lost 8.2lbs over the 43 days. He has lost 22.6lbs. I'm pretty excited for both of us.

  Slow and steady wins the race after all. Tonight has been the start of packing small amounts of my apartment up. I packed one small bookcase and went through a box that I haven't opened in 2 years. I was able to get rid of 75% of that box. I don't mean I threw it away. I'm taking it to donate. Anything that can be donated will be.

  My boyfriend came and kept me company as I did this. He handed me a new box when I needed one. Having him there as I go through things is a help. It helps me really face what I need and what I don't. It's easier to picture whether or not I'll want it in our apartment or not. He feels like he's making me get rid of things, but if I haven't opened the box in two years, how much do I really need?

  The teamwork continued when we came home and even before that. Prior to that we went to Costco to stock up on some necessities. It's a team effort getting through that store and making sure we get everything we need. We have a shared note so that we can add things to it and both see it.

  When we got home, it was time to make lunches. He cooked the fish and measured it out; and, I did the dishes. I cleaned our coffee mugs and Tupperware for today. I helped measure out our snacks. I calculated my macros for tomorrow. It looks pretty good. Today I fell short by 2g on both protein and fat. Net 16g carbs. Tomorrow I'm set to go over by a bit more.

  We are both really looking forward to our new place and using weekends to prep meals for the week so we stop doing so much prep night to night. This isn't a complaint, but when you're keto and your roommates are, you can't exactly fill the fridge and freezer with keto items. You have to share.

  We are trying to eat up what we have in the fridge and the freezer before we move. We're almost done with the items in the freezer. We are slowly getting through everything in the fridge as well. Some essentials have to be restocked. I can't wait until we get to stock our new fridge, freezer and pantry! It will be a blank slate and become all keto!
