I haven’t been very diligent with exercising (it’s actually been pretty non-existent lately) and I’ve been a little too lenient with carbs, but I’m still enjoying the added energy that comes with eating the lazy keto/low carb way. I’m looking forward to getting back to focusing on the Keto diet and introducing intermittent fasting after Thanksgiving.
