Keto Tip (70): The Only Way You Fail Is If You Quit

    "It doesn't mean that if you messed up this morning, the rest of your day is shot down. Everyday, there are choices we can make. You get to get up in the morning and decide to do the best that you can. If you don't achieve the things that you want to achieve, just keep going".

Hey everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie, I wanted to come here and encourage you. If you're feeling like you messed up today, you messed up this week, I've messed up for the last month, I can't get back on track, or wherever you fall in that category. If you haven't, then just think about this when you do.

So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? Here's a story about me that all my friends and my family know. I'm very positive about the fact that I'm going to have bigger biceps, I'm going to have big muscles, and I want to get stronger.

Over the course of years, I've learned things like the amount of protein I have to eat, the workouts that I have to do, and the amount of food that I have to eat because there's a difference between losing fat and gaining muscle.

I've implemented some of those things, and then I think a week ago, I started a program called Armageddon.
  • I go to CrossFit.

  • I eat low carb, higher protein, moderate fat, and low carb.

  • I drink ketones

  • I drink protein shakes.

When you're watching somebody online or if you're following somebody, always remember that everybody has different goals. There are a lot of different ways to do keto. There are people who are super strict. The word "Keto" to me years ago, was mostly about tracking your food. It was the only way people knew how to do it, and drinkable ketones did not exist yet.

But then over the course of years, it has turned into its own thing like low carb keto, dirty keto, clean keto. You can't even physically do the same thing that your best friend is doing because she might be dairy free, he might be vegan keto, and there are just so many different ways to do low carb.

So I want you to understand that if you're here on this journey, you can always ask me questions. Maybe you're not keto, maybe you're paleo, maybe your whole 30, I don't really care. But the biggest thing that people get into their mindset, wherever they fall in line with your keto journey is, that they messed up today, so it's okay to just throw in the towel for the rest of the day.

Or they just don't start because it's not perfect, or because they missed a couple of days. People immediately get into this mindset of "I screwed up", "I can't do this", "I'm not going to do this", and "I'm just going to quit".

I didn't fall into that trap, but I could have easily done that. I started a program called Armageddon, which is a 12-week program to build some muscles. I'm already going to CrossFit, and I've got my food even more dialed in. When I started this 12-week program, I told myself "I will not miss a day". But then I missed two days.
