Day 11: Finding Rhythm

Like any other habit change, going Keto has its challenges. The first one being is that I now eat differently than the rest of my family who happen to live under the same roof and for whom I am responsible for feeding every meal. That’s three meals a day I am already preparing for other people. Now, I am cooking extra to feed myself. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving the cooking Keto part. And I’ve been feeding my family long enough to know what I can whip up quickly that everyone will love. But let’s face it, any change requires some adaptation time.

Today, I feel like I am finding a rhythm with my Keto diet. I have chosen a meal schedule that works for me and allows me to go back to intermittent fasting. Here’s what it looks like:

  • 5 AM – Wake up and relax in bed
  • 6 AM – Get up, wake the kids up and go prepare lunches. Drink lots of water with a pinch of salt in it.
  • 7:30 AM – Get the kids out the door and leave for work with tea in hand
  • 9 AM – Drink my Keto Coffee (coffee with heavy cream and 1tbsp of MCT Oil) and have breakfast
  • 12:30 PM – Eat lunch
  • 4 PM – Eat dinner

I am usually done dinner by 4:30 pm and I usually won’t eat anything until 16 hours later. One thing about the Keto diet that is absolutely fascinating me is that I am simply not hungry. Often, I will not be hungry enough for lunch and will go right till dinner. I refuse to force myself to eat when my body is clearly saying it does not want to eat. And having a later lunch means one of two thing: either I will have a later dinner and will not fast for 16 hours that day (If that is the case, I still try to fast for at least 12 hours) or I will skip dinner all together in order to fast at least 16 hours but this throws the schedule for the next day way off.

All in all, I am happy that I seem to have fallen into a rhythm. I home this will make things easier as I progress through this first month on the Ketogenic diet.

May Baydoun did all the “right” things and followed all the “right” steps. But she knew deep down that there was more to life than getting an education, getting married, having children... There had to be more than just the cards you are dealt. Watching her children play, she overheard her daughter saying “... just like mommy”. The sudden realization that her children, her daughters especially, would grow up to be just like mommy frightened her deeply. She was the role model of what a woman can be in this life and at that time, May wasn’t satisfied with who she was nor what she stood for. She was nothing more than her mother had shown her to be... A woman in her thirties, married with young children putting her dreams and ambitions on a permanent hold to raise a family. In that moment, she fully understood that she could not expect her children to become more or better than she was willing to be herself. It was a harsh reality check; and in that moment, she made the decision she would become the best version of herself she could be because she HAD to be the best possible role model for her children. That powerful decision, her awakening, meant that she could no longer accept the average life she had led up until that point. She set out on a wild journey of deep self-discovery. Not only of who she was, but who she wanted to be and how to become that woman who had that life. Along the way, she made the discovery of the law of attraction and suddenly her whole life made sense. The good luck... The bad luck... The past decade of her life. It all made sense. She had created it all. And if she could create it, then she could dis-create it and re-create something new. She began testing the theory and in no time was proven right. Fully trusting the Universe, she allowed herself to be led on the journey. She has had the beautiful blessing of learning from so many great thought leaders and piecing together the many pieces of life’s intriguing puzzle. Over a decade later, she has discovered her life purpose, and is living it fully. Now that the student has become a master, she teaches others the principles that have led to her radical life transformation and how they too can leverage (or hack) the Universe to get anything they want... without breaking any of the laws!
