Jordan has been wanting me to increase the protein in my diet for over 6 months. This is to help support where I am in my training sessions. My stubborn self said (in my head), what I am doing is working so just keep doing what you are doing. To him, I just said that is not keto. Thank God he is patient with me.
My progress has slowed over the last few months and in November the body fat % went up. Stubborn Kim just kept doing what she had been doing. Jordan set a goal for the end of December to break my mental scale number. He told me if I increased my protein a little, we would see results. What did I do??? Stubborn Kim, kept doing what I had been doing.
We are close to the end of December. Will I break that number? Maybe, it will be close but not close enough. I wanted to KILL that number. That won't happen. If I had listened and done what Jordan said, I would have killed it.
So stubborn Kim has a choice to make. Keep doing what you are doing or listen to Jordan.
Saturday night, I made the decision to do what Jordan wants me to. I changed the settings on my carb manager to show the protein levels he wants, the carbs I want, and will adjust the calories with fat consumption. I will still be doing keto, with a slight adjustment.
