Fit by 50 – Week 29 : The progress continues – 3 pounds and 3.5 inches lost!

I have an assignment due tomorrow night, so this will be quick. I just wanted to share my success this week with you. It seems that the keto diet continues to work, as I’ve lost not only inches this week, but pounds as well.

weigh in day!


I am consistently logging my meals into, which I absolutely love. It’s perfect for the Keto diet, telling me how many carbs I have left for each day as I go along. It tracks ketones and glucose as well. One fabulous feature is the recipe “import” feature. I can log in a website and the app will import the recipe from that site. This saves from having to log the recipe in by hand.

I’m also consistently exercising at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, sometimes 60 minutes. I do 30 minutes of HIIT 3 days a week and 60 minutes of aerobic/walking the other days.

I’ve been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately, so I need to figure that out.  I would also like to work in meditation and yoga everyday. So, those are my next goals: proper sleep, daily meditation and daily yoga.

Closing thoughts

I am excited by this week’s progress, and continue to be cautiously optimistic. I am within 10% points of my fat % goal. I have a long way to go for the weight goal. I’ll see where I am when I hit my fat % goal and go from there. I may not need to lose as many pounds as I originally thought. My goal weight may not be realistic, we’ll see.

Until next time…Namaste my friends

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
