Lately I've felt like my own worst enemy. It's not Keto's fault. It's my fault. I eat off of my plan. I use excuses that aren't really valid. I've been eating way too many carbs lately. It really started with vacation in May. I gave myself the excuse that it was vacation and I needed… Continue reading Self Sabotage
Two weekends ago my husband and I went away (without our daughter) for a retreat with friends. It was the perfect weather to have a fire in the evenings. During the day on Saturday we cuddled up to watch videos and share ideas on how to build better marriages for ourselves and our spouses. We… Continue reading Relaxing A Little
This may shock some of you, you may assume that I'm the kind of person that always sets a resolution at the beginning of each year, but I don't. I've never like the cliche of a New Year's resolution. But I do like setting goals. This year I've decided to step out of my comfort… Continue reading I Don’t Make Resolutions.
As you start to lose weight and feel healthier with this new way of life, people will make comments about the changes they notice. Usually it's just a compliment on how great you look. However, often the next thing they say is "what are you doing?" They want to know how they can lose weight… Continue reading How to Handle Questions About Keto
These tart and fluffy lemon flavored muffins are sure to make their way into your Keto dessert rotation. I've tried a lot of Keto treats since I started this way of eating late last year and these are definitely at the top of my list of favorites. I hope you enjoy them as much as… Continue reading Keto Lemon Crumble Muffins
I recently learned a new concept. The concept isn't new and I know that I've heard it before, but it was explained in a way this time that really stood out. The information has sunk in and I'm starting to apply the theory to my life with good results. So today, I'm going to teach… Continue reading Imagine a Healthy You
I hope all of you are enjoying the Easter season so far! We are having particularly cool weather here (for this part of April) in South Louisiana where we live. It made for some very nice family events over the Easter weekend. And we had a SUPER busy Easter weekend this year. I almost needed… Continue reading Happy Easter All!
If you've had any exposure to the Ketogenic diet at all you have probably heard or read something about salt. I remember when I first heard a keto expert talking about salt, I had to do a play back of the recording... WAIT! WHAT?!?! You want me to eat MORE salt? Now THAT's what I'm… Continue reading Please Pass the Salt!
Growing up in a family of five children, we had a lot of Easter traditions. I've tried to share most of them with my daughter from a very young age. As well as trying out a few new ones. Luckily, she's still so young that she doesn't really remember what we did from one year… Continue reading Here Comes Peter Cottontail
Our daughter's fourth birthday was last weekend. It was bittersweet. She's smart, silly, strong, kind, affectionate, funny and she loves animals. As any typical three/four year old, she has her moments - tantrums, negotiating for later bedtimes, wheeling and dealing for candy, etc. But all in all, she's a great kid and she is teaching… Continue reading Just Like THAT She’s 4 Years Old
On Tuesday, Mardi Gras day, I sat and wondered what I would give up for Lent this year. Often I like to make my Lenten penances somewhat of a self-improvement thing. To sort of knock out two birds with one stone - I become a better person in some way that I know I need… Continue reading Another Lent Is Upon Us
