Three months and almost 50 pounds lighter! It’s definitely been worth the effort to get myself on the right wellness path. I’m still seeing steady results with doing the Keto diet, Pruvit’s Keto OS drink mixes, and a regular exercise routine. As my body fat decreases, I’m having to increase the intensity level of my 15 minute warm up run at the gym. I’ll run two minutes at 5.0 mph, 5 1/2 minutes at 5.5 mph, 6 1/2 minutes at 6.1 mph, and finish off with a one minute sprint at 7.5 mph. This isn’t a blazing fast pace, but it’s a huge improvement from three months ago. Back then, I was “jogging” 2 1/2 minutes at 5.0 mph, and I had to stop and walk the rest of the time. It really doesn’t matter where you start though. Just set goals and keep focused on those goals through out the week. It took me about two weeks in the beginning to work up to jogging a half mile, and at the time, I though I was going to die 🙂 Three months later, jogging at a pretty brisk 6.0 mph doesn’t intimidate me.
If you’re one of Kelli’s clients and reporting your measurements every week, you can see your Lean Body Mass (LBM) to body fat ratio and how it changes over time. The ratio of LBM compared to body fat weight is another great indicator of your overall health. LBM is basically the combined weight of all your organs, bones, and muscle: everything except your fat. Over three months, I’ve seen my LBM stay pretty much the same, but my body fat has taken a huge dip.
More important than the actual measurements is the consistency of reporting your measurements. People will have good weeks and bad weeks when it comes to healthy living, so tracking your measurements over time is way more beneficial than getting hung up on one bad week.
