It has been awhile since I updated my blog! Life got really busy and after the injury, and I slacked off quite a lot on my fitness journey. Summer vacations and new jobs took their toll on my time and attention. But, it is time to refocus my energy. I’m getting back on track not only with the exercising, but also with healthy eating. I’m going ketogenic again. While I don’t notice that I feel much better or worse on or off a diet, there is a lot of research supporting the ketogenic diet’s ability to improve brain function and reduce inflammation. These are two key things that I would like to do in my fitness.
The ketogenic diet is very low carbohydrate and assists many people in weight loss. For many years, it was used to treat people with epilepsy. While it doesn’t prevent all seizures, supporting the brain function with a healthy dose of fats is a good thing.
I also need to get back up on my treadmill and exercising again. Working out at home is not always as effective as going to a gym because there is less accountability. It is more accessible and convenient, so I’m making it a goal this week to get my exercising in for at least an hour per day.
