Day 087 – 100 days of Keto (Chow)

This entry is part 71 of 81 in the series 100 days of keto
  • Weight: 203.6
  • Blood ketones: 1.1 mmol/L

Looks like I had inexplicably stored up a bunch of glycogen – the difference between yesterday morning (~8 hours fasting while sleeping) and this morning (~32 hours fasting) is dramatic: 4.2 lbs down and 0.9mmol/L of ketones higher. That’s a lot of water weight! I’m still trying to decide what I’m going to do regarding eating today. I feel fine, pretty good aside from being terribly tired; but that doesn’t have anything to do with fasting, it’s the fault of my brain.

I got an email yesterday evening where a user reported getting a time-out during payment, they recommended I try a different shopping cart. I looked at a few, then went to bed. Then around midnight my brain turned on, sleep was a lost cause so I decided to research a bit since I was awake anyway. After spending a few hours setting up and then decommissioning test shopping carts with various providers here’s what I have gleaned: Shopify is a crowd favorite, until you need to calculate shipping based on dimensions (which I do). Most of the other ones also can’t handle dimensions. WooCommerce handles it just fine, it’s a standard “out of the box” feature that takes the box sizes you provide and “packs” them, then gets a shipping quote with the weight and box. I (wrongfully) assumed this would be standard with other shopping carts. The only one I found that supports it is BigCommerce, which looks fine until you get into the pricing – their highest plan allows for 3000 orders a year after which it’s and additional $80 per 1000, PER MONTH. Based on my order volume over the last year, my monthly costs would be between $500 and $700; assuming no growth. That’s nuts.

Anyway – yesterday the clouds broke for a few hours after I got home and I was able to do some work on the shed, which was a good thing since I didn’t eat dinner (the kids ate Hot Pockets, my wife had a Keto Chow) though I also fell over backwards twice, got a real nice bruise on my rear. I also ran again. I did “mess up” and technically broke my fast when I took two fish pills after brushing my teeth – 15 calories each. CRON-O-Meter says I could eat 2892 more calories to reach my weight goal. Fun Stuff =)

Here’s the first time I fell over, bonus points if you can find the second time in the video.
