Keto Strong

As of Friday I weighed in at 173, putting me down a total of 21 pounds! I am now down another jean size as well. All I can say is WOW 🙂 What is working best for me lately is sticking to the diet closely. I will admit the first month on keto I was… Continue reading Keto Strong

Egg Fast Experiment Conclusion

I really wanted to continue on to the full 5 day egg fast but unfortunately cannot. I woke up this morning with some intense stomach pain/digestive issues (yeah yeah TMI), which I'm assuming is from the lack of fiber and increase in dairy. Despite having to quit at the 3 day mark I did see… Continue reading Egg Fast Experiment Conclusion

Egg Fast Experiment Day 2

I won't lie, today has been a struggle. Being very limited on this fast is quite challenging! But my willpower to complete this is bigger than my cravings. My weight the last 24 hours has dropped back to where I was before I gained back about 2.5 pounds the previous week. That's great for one… Continue reading Egg Fast Experiment Day 2

Cheat Weekend- Mini Vacation Edition

For the most part I have been very good on this Keto diet. But the second my husband mentioned he wanted to check out Traverse City this weekend, I knew I had to let it go and indulge. And yes, it does make you feel sick when you go from barely any carbs/sugar to ALLLLL… Continue reading Cheat Weekend- Mini Vacation Edition

Banza

In my efforts to be healthier, I have tried the majority of the veggie "noodles" out there. A select few I can tolerate but it seems like none of them have the right texture or taste to trick me into thinking I'm eating actual noodles. My mom gave me a box of Banza chickpea elbow… Continue reading Banza
