I want to start the week out with another Interesting Thing Just For You from YouTube! (And today I realized I'd been abbreviating it wrong: it should be ITJFY. However, I've been titling that way for a while, the tags all match it, and it's kind of cute, so I don't see a reason to … Continue reading ITJFU: Marriage & Motherhood YouTuber
I fell off the Keto Wagon for Valentines, and I'm making up for it with meal prep! In on of the Facebook Groups I follow, someone doing Dirty Keto showed how they use pre-made spice mixes to meal prep. This is a fabulous idea. I almost never like what I cook, but I DO like … Continue reading Meal Prep!
UGH. I was doing SO WELL on the meds I was on, fairly stable, rarely swinging full manic and a livable amount of depression. But I made the mistake of mentioning, at my most recent psych appointment, that I was lactating from the Invega. My doctor immediately wanted to know for how long. Four years? … Continue reading Everything Was Stable So Time For New Medications: Let’s Talk About Weight Gain
I've been about 90% keto for the last two weeks. I say 90% because I went over carb count a few times, BUT I didn't eat grains, starches, or sugars. The result? I started out at 300.2 lbs. Today I was at 295.6 lbs. So, a loss! I think I should make some sort of … Continue reading Keto Update: March
I completely forgot to share how my Valentine's Day went! We don't usually make a big deal of this holiday - we're pretty sweet on each other all the time, so ramping that up gets ridiculous. We had some dates while we were dating, but he shows me every day that he loves me. Plus, … Continue reading Valentine’s Day! Totally Forgot to Share.
See this? This was me for the last two weeks. That's an ice cream bowl. (And Tundra, who just seems to know when you're unhappy and comes and cuddles.) Ice cream for the sad, reading for the escape. I had a rough bit after my Grandpa died, and I wanted nothing more than to eat … Continue reading So Let’s Talk About Keto
I've mentioned it before, but my husband has huge gut issues. He appears to have Celiac's and almost certainly a corn allergy/intolerance, but no matter how careful we are with his food, he just keeps getting sicker. I mean, he's down to rice, peas, and eggs. It's that dire. And if he so much as … Continue reading All Meat Diet for My Husband?
I mentioned before that I had started a Keto Meal Plan from Wholesome Yum, and so far it's going well. It's really nice to not have to figure out what to cook! Here's the newest update. I'm still finding that her plan has far more food than I need in it, so I chose fewer … Continue reading Week Three: Wholesome Yum Keto Meal Plan
I've subscribed to a Keto Meal Plannning service, just to try it out. Wholesome Yum is a Keto Recipe Blogger I've been following for quite a while, and I'm giving her service a try! You can find her blog here. So I went grocery shopping for all of the supplies I didn't already have, and … Continue reading Keto Meal Planning Service
I've tried a few different Keto pancake recipes, and I really haven't liked them, especially those with cream cheese in them. But I've kept an eye out, and there was one suggested on a Keto Facebook Group that looked promising. This one at Low Carb Yum. So I thought I'd give it a try, and … Continue reading Keto: Waffles
