• You Need a New Thought

    August 25, 2019mruckstuhl

    I woke up this morning having gained another pound. I’m up to 148.0 as of this morning. That’s 9 pounds higher than my all time lowest weight of 139.0. While I was discouraged I’m not at all surprised. You see, I gave up a little last night. I had waffles (low carb), even though I…

  • Honest Moment

    July 28, 2019mruckstuhl

    I hope you guys are ready for some honest, deep, almost shameful updates from me. That’s what’s on my heart and on my mind to share right now. I haven’t blogged in a couple of weeks, part of the reason that I’ve been MIA is that I’m still struggling to get back into good, consistent…

  • Self Sabotage

    July 7, 2019mruckstuhl

    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…

    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…

  • Imagine a Healthy You

    May 19, 2019mruckstuhl

    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…

  • Relaxing A Little

    March 31, 2019mruckstuhl

    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…

  • What Your Food Eats Matters

    February 24, 2019mruckstuhl

    We all know that what you eat makes a difference in how you feel, what you look like, how your body functions, your life expectance as well as a ton of other things (I really could go on and on). When you consider that the food that we eat can either make you healthy or…

  • A Little Cold

    February 17, 2019mruckstuhl

    For the last week or so I’ve had a little cold. I knew that I might get one when my daughter was stuck home for several days. She ran a fever, then later developed a runny nose. Actually the cough was the first symptom. That’s unusual for her and me – usually the cough comes…

  • Suddenly A Science Geek?

    February 9, 2019mruckstuhl

    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,…

  • Empowered By A Glucose & Ketone Monitor

    February 3, 2019mruckstuhl

    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…
