Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s been a little bit since I’ve had time to post an update. Over the last month, we have celebrated Easter, had 2 birthdays (my own and Aidan’s), taken a few trips out of town, and had Spring awards shows at the girls’ school. We have been busy!
I have managed to stay on track with my Keto diet aside from one “cheat” on Easter. Full disclosure: I had a cupcake. A real, sugary, cupcake made with actual flour. I didn’t regret it afterwards, although I think I’ve definitely lost my taste for super sweet foods because it really wasn’t all that great. It did however kick me out of ketosis, and after that, it took me about 3 days to get back in. My weight also jumped up 2 pounds, but those came right back off and I think that may have been the result of some water retention. All of these things combined, made me want to get right back on track with my Keto lifestyle. And I did.
Immediately after finishing the cupcake.
The biggest downside to my little cheat was that I noticed some carb cravings had returned over the next few days. To combat this, I decided to make myself a Keto-friendly dessert that I could indulge in until those cravings pass again.
Using ingredients I already had on hand, (it’s strawberry season here in Virginia!) I decided to make these Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs from Perfect Keto, and they were a life-saver during this time! They are the perfect treat for these warm spring days, without all the guilt or the yucky feelings after.
