11 Weeks Keto and Pyramid Workouts


Today marks 11 weeks I started Keto and ramping up my dumbbell workouts and 2 weeks ago started pyramid dumbbell workouts. Measured my stats this morning and had a little bit of an ego boost!

Blood Sugar and Supplements


Since I've caught up some bills, I decided to re-introduce some supplements to my daily regimen. Back came Fish Oil, Magnesium and Vitamin C. Right away my Blood Sugar came down a couple hundred points, to a more manageable 180-200 (what my GP wanted).
