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
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
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!

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!
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
Another update this week on my stats. Ya'll are probably going to get tired of hearing about my glucose and ketone numbers, because I'll admit that I'm a bit obsessed at the moment. I'm an accountant by trade so I like numbers. I like statistics even more. Lately I've gone deep down the rabbit hole,… Continue reading Suddenly A Science Geek?
A couple of weeks ago I ordered a glucose and ketone monitor. It's one little machine that tests both ketones and glucose in your blood. It felt like it took forever to arrive, but it was really only a couple of days to process the order and then a couple for shipping. The monitor had… Continue reading Empowered By A Glucose & Ketone Monitor
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.
Last week I wrote about buffering. Just to recap... Buffering is any action you engage in to avoid feeling an emotion. I admitted that I buffer with food aka emotional eating. Many of us buffer emotion with social media, etc. I buffer when I have a task that I think will be long, complicated or… Continue reading Processing Emotion
