First off, I made a mistake in yesterday’s post! I had a 0.2% loss in body fat, not 0.5%. And I gained 0.1% in muscle mass. Whoopsies and thank you for those who caught the error!
Secondly, I want to go over my Fit Journal week 3 recap and compare it against week 2 – to see if I stuck to what I said I was going to do!
My week 2 recap said that I should START stretching at least 2x/week and STOP buying the same foods and to try something new! This past week, I ended up only stretching once that week. So I need to try to up it this week. It’s just that the studio is far from my house, so maybe I’ll need to do one stretch sesh at home. But in terms of trying new foods, yes, this week I bought new foods and everything was so tasty!
THINGS TO START: Next week, I want to get my blood work done to check for things like food sensitivities and any weird things going on with my hormones. I currently have an appointment on Monday. I am SO SCARED of needles, but I really want to understand the state of my body. The more info I have, the more I can strategize how I should eat and work out. I’m excited and nervous all at the same time!
THINGS TO STOP: Also, my goal next week is to decrease how much dairy I am consuming. I’ve never really been a cheese fan, but since keto allowed lots of high fats, I decided to begin eating it because I could! But I’ve found that it doesn’t add that much taste value for me. Plus I also think it’s causing some bloat and indigestion. So let’s see how week 4 goes with less dairy products.
Before we get into what I ate yesterday, I wanna show you my game plan page in my Fit Journal!
It is SO SATISFYING to see this page getting filled up with all sorts of workouts! As you can see, I love varying my workouts so that I never get bored. What also helps me is going to classes. For my job, I am always choreographing workouts and teaching people, so it’s nice to have another instructor whoop my butt for a change! I like it when they kill me (the same way I kill you)! So far looks like I am averaging 6 workouts a week and 1 rest day. Just like your monthly workout calendar!
DAY 22 RECAP:
Yesterday, I made the best dish I have made in a LONG time. It was PERFECTION!!!!
This right here is cauliflower rice, ground turkey seasoned with Nom Nom Paleo magic mushroom powder, sautéed mushrooms, a soft boiled egg, and a fresh half avocado with sriracha. AHHHHHHHHH. THIS WAS SO GOOD!!!!
So good that…
I basically had it again for dinner! Except I added fresh tomatoes, took out the egg and avo, and put some black beans in chili oil on top along with the sriracha. It was spicy and amazing!!!
Also, those tomatoes? FRESHLY PICKED off of my new tomato plant!!! These taste so sweet and smell so fragrant. I hope I can keep my tomato plant alive. It’s been a week so far and he seems to be thriving.
For snacks, I went nut crazy. I ate spicy peanuts and Thai chili almonds…and then…for another snack later that night…
I found the best nuts I have ever tasted. You guys. I bought this bag of chili roasted pistachios from Costco and OH MY GAWD. ADDICTING. You need to try!!!!
Okay that’s all for now! I’m missing my keto ice cream. Thinking of getting it…should I get it!!??? 😛

Mmmh I’ll probably try the cauli rice recipe, I’ll see
It is the best and amazing food, Looking very yummy.
Hi Cassey! First off all I have to tell you that I really enjoy reading your blog posts every day! Although I am home workout person I also like to vary my workouts because I get bored really fast 😛
I have those Chili roasted pistachios but not from my Costco. And they’re in shells. But I love foods with a kick so I bought some. I just take my time opening them and enjoy slowly.
Oh I love that they’re still in shells! Where did you get em?
She bought them at Costco.
How did you make the chilli black beans!?
I bought it at Ranch 99! In the chili aisle!
Can’t eat nuts
I’ve gotta try shishito peppers. I’ve seen you post them a few times and they look delicious. I love adding spicy sauces to my food. I’m addicted to Frank’s Red hot sauce right now lol
OMG shishitos are LIFEEEE. TRY IT please!!
Those look amazing! Lol I have a question though, how do you prepare your soft boiled eggs? I feel I still either overcook or undercook them when I try to make soft boiled eggs…💜💜💜
Ehhhh I’m no expert. I’m guessing right now. I do a few min and if it’s still too runny I put it back in the pot. LOL.
You’re nuts for nuts! 🙂 they can be so absolutely addicting. Keep in mind that the flavoured ones usually come with some sugar and MSG, just so you know! I love Sriracha just as much as you, and I’m still perfecting my soft-boiled egg skills… A lot of times they come out hard boiled. I have been loving this journey so far, thank you so much for sharing.
I am nuts for nuts 🙂
Enjoy that keto ice cream! A little treat will keep your lifestyle sustainable. For me if I completely say no to things I will do good for a week and then as soon as I say yes I end up eating more junk than I would have if I just kept it to small treats every now and then. Depends on you ❤️
That looks yummy. It goes to show healthy food doesn’t have to be chicken breast and boiled brocolli on repeat.
I love icecream but I keep it away as much as possible. I ate it only once a month… What you eat more your body will need and craving more. So I can stay without alot of things. 😄 But nobody is perfect so once in a while I eat so much gummys! 💞
Your lunch looks and sounds wonderful😍and no!! Do you wanna take a break from ice-cream?😅😅
Just FYI about blood tests for food sensitivities – ‘intolerances’ (i.e. non-IgE allergies) don’t show on blood tests. They will only show up if you have IgE allergies (and you’d probably already know if you did…). Hair tests, saliva tests, IgG blood tests are also BS and not worth bothering with. The best way to ascertain if you have an intolerance is to keep a food/symptom diary and discuss it with a dietician or allergist.
Oh and also I love your tomato plant! Growing your own veg is so satisfying!
I dont think pistachios is Keto??? They have 19 carb/handfull…. But I can be wrong, I eat LCHF and nuts is a big no no for me. Thank you for all the inspiration!
There are 6g net carbs for 1/4 cup. Depends what you call a handfull!
Outside, tomato plants give tomatos for about a month or so (mild climate), so you might need another plant later, but it is a great idea! Maybe you can grow your own plants from seeds and have them in your balcony or garden 🙂 I do that every summer.
I think ice cream is a necessity 🙂 It somehow kills my taste for more sweet food so I like to have some in my fridge all the time for emergency, especially during summer.
I can’t lazy keto yet due to breastfeeding, but I am going to give it a try once I am able to eat just for myself, sleep more that 4 hours straight and PIIT28 again 🙂 Your meals sound so tasty!
I am nut addict, but back when I was counting calories, I was astonished how much cal they add in the amount I ate 🙁 I still have them every day, but now I know my serving size 🙂 See, data collection is important, just as you say!
I am saying no to the Keto ice cream. If you are craving ice cream, try a non dairy version since you are cutting back on dairy. On another note, I love pistachios! Lol
I mean, if you can fit ice cream into your diet, then I say do it!
Don’t be scared of the needle, I had my blood taken a few weeks ago and I was all worked up and then I barely felt it and I was like, “oh that was it?”
Keep it up Cassey, your food is so creative and looks so good!
We’re going to Costco in the morning, and I definitely need to keep an eye out for those pistachios! My current food obsession is pistachio butter.
