Keto Day 7 Recap – 1 Week Down!

I really hate being sick, it just knocks me off my path!  The last two days I have been on track when it comes to food, but I haven’t exercised since Monday.  Tomorrow is no excuses, I’m getting my butt outside and walking!  Tomorrow is also weigh in day!  I actually can’t wait because I […]

Pop Challenge #3 Finds!

How did you do on my pop challenge?  I found some interesting recipes that I’m excited to try out. Rosemary Parmesan Chia Seed Crackers  – These look pretty good and 4 crackers equals 6~ grams of fiber and 2~ net carbs.  Can’t wait to try these with some meat and cheese! I really love cream of […]

Keto Day 5 

Monday, March 2, 2015 Today it’s rainy, windy and dreary here, but instead of letting that be my excuse not to get my activity in, I dusted off my elliptical and turned on How To Get Away With Murder and burned 460 calories in 30 minutes. I got some ketostix yesterday so I tested myself […]

Keto Day 4 Recap

I felt lazy today and really didn’t want to do my walk, so I enlisted my hubby and the kid to get me off my butt and we walked to the playground.  Almost 3 miles in 50 min.  Happy I got it done. I went to Target today and they were having a ‘buy one […]

Smash book! In progress

I’m so excited!  My smash book came today so of course I got it started.  It’s a little bigger than I was hoping for, so the next one will be smaller.  I’m having lots of fun with it. This is what I have so far: Motivation and inspiration page: I will be adding to this. […]

Keto Day 1 Recap

Oh My Gosh!!!!  Dinner last night was amazing!  I can’t wait for leftovers for lunch.  It was really hard to not eat too much.   Here is the link to the original recipe: Mine was just a little different.  The original recipe has bacon, onion, green onion, and cheddar cheese.  I didn’t want to do […]

Week 2 Weigh In day!!!!

Weigh in day!!!!  Drum Roll…… I lost half a pound since last week.  I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since surgery and 4 weeks since I started my pre-op diet. 1/31/15: 256.4 2/19/15: 242.8 2/26/13: 242.2 14.2 pounds in 4 weeks.  Not too bad.  That makes me happy.  Hopefully I can continue with at […]

“It’s all about the numbers….”

I get really frustrated when I hear people say weight loss is just about numbers.  Calories in vs calories out.  That is seriously a bunch of crap.  That’s like saying I could eat 1200 calories in cheesecake and cookies and as long as I have a calorie deficit, I will lose weight.  That is a […]

Wow – 10 Days Already?

Sunday, Feb 22nd – Day 10 Post Op I can’t believe it’s already been 10 days since surgery.  I’m feeling pretty good!  I took all my bandages off today.  Most of my incisions are pretty small except the incision where my port is.  It’s probably about an inch and a half long.  I have some […]

Still Recovering….

I’m a week and 1 day post op now.  This is my second day of eating mushy/pureed foods.  Right now I’m feeling like I could eat anything!  Not that I want to eat some specific, I just keep forgetting that I can’t just eat a meatball or something. Got my butt outside and walked again […]
