Monday weigh in 4/24/2017

How is everyone? Been a couple of weeks since my last update.  We are doing great and still loving the Keto lifestyle 🙂 My son is down 11 pounds and I am down 25!

In 100 days I have lost a little over 25 pounds! I am so excited about that and I am still in amazement that this has worked for me and continues to work. Never in my life have I found a diet that is so easy to follow and stick to! For my next 100 day goal I am looking to lose 20 more pounds and workout at least 3 days a week. My son and I are almost done with our school year and then we can start going on bike rides, hikes and dog walks on the mornings that are nice.  I am hoping to tone up and get my son into a healthier habit frame of mind.  I would like to break the cycle of bad habits and health in my family.

Please help me build my blog and make my way into being a stay at home mom in the future. Here is a link to my give away!

Hello all and how is everyone doing? I just enjoyed the best weekend yet this year. Perfect weather and got a lot of yard work accomplished. We planted 3 new trees; one peach, one apple and one japanese maple. The maple is my absolute favorite tree! Our local Sutherlands had a 50% off trees and shrubs sale this weekend and I took full advantage.  After yard work saturday I was so sore and had so much nerve pain but it has subsided. I gained almost 4 pounds in inflammation and water retention saturday into sunday but by this evening it is gone.

Now I want to share a recipe I came up with today:

2 mushroom caps with a pat of butter

We had some leftover turkey from this weekend so I added it on top of the butter and put garlic salt on.

Brussel sprouts

Shredded cheese

A slice of provolone cheese and then cooked for 15-20 mins at 350

These were so yummy!

Alright on to my weigh in:

I finally hit the 20 pound mark! I am so excited about this 🙂 Tomorrow I get to go get a new hair cut. Keto on my friends!

Hello friends and family! How is everyone doing?  I found free little cookbook I want to share with you, Lowcarbyum.com. I also made soul bread from her site and OMG it was so good!

Just look at that sandwhich! It was SO good to finally find a “bread” that works for us 🙂

Each slice is just about 1 carb each. The next time I make it I will slice them thinner because they are dense and very filling. Perfect for toasting and  putting a big slice of butter on top. Soul Bread is my new favorite 🙂

 

Now onto my weigh in:

I am down almost another 2 lbs 🙂 I am well on my way to meeting my first goal of 25 lbs in 100 days with about 25 days left. I am slow to lose but I am still losing and feeling great! I started my son on his keto journey last week and he is down 2lbs and I am so proud of him. Keto on friends and family!

Hello all, hope everyone is doing great! I want to share with you one of my favorite kitchen appliances, Instant Pot. I have had one for a few years and use it everyday.

Amazon has this one for $80 right now and that is a great deal. I cooked a half breast of turkey this weekend and it came out so moist and flavorful. Yum! I mean it cooks the best turkey and chicken breast you have ever tasted in about 30 minutes! Now compare that time to the regular time in the oven and work of basting and checking and basting and checking tempature…exhausting!

Now onto my weigh in:

I am down another 2 pounds! Making a total of 17.2 pounds down since Jan 17, 2017. I know it is not as much or as fast as others but I am still losing and I am happy with that.

Melaleuca’s Tough and Tender

Hi all I want to share with you some individual products that you could get in the home conversion kit that I introduced you to here in this post.

Tough and Tender is Melaleuca’s answer to 409 only it doesn’t have all the caustic chemicals and it is CHEAPER.  This quick, effective, 12x super-concentrated all-purpose cleaner cleans up everyday dirt and grime anywhere-counters, tables, appliances, even natural stone-using no caustic chemicals.  12x super concentrated means that you buy one bottle with the cleaner in it and a spray bottle to mix the cleaner. You get 12 full sized spray bottles for around $6. Can you buy 12 bottles of 409 for that? 

This is the cleaner that I use the most and on just about every surface in my home. I have 1 child, 2 dogs and 3 cats that I do not want to expose to harmful chemicals so I absolutely love that I can keep them safe and my home surfaces clean.

I love this company and it’s products and I would love to share more info on them so feel free to contact me via comment and be sure to join my blog for more posts on the products.

Happy 1st day of Spring! Here in southern Missouri we had a warm 80+ degree day 🙂 Working nights I didn’t get to enjoy the mid-day sun but I did get out this morning and run some errands while the sun was pleasant. It was nice.  Now that Spring is here and we are almost finished with school I cannot wait to spend the mornings working in my flower garden or riding the local bike trails with my son.

Now on to the weigh in:

I finally lost again! 2 pounds in 7 days. I am so pleased but I have not got the Keto energy I have read about and wish I could. I am guessing for me it is hormonal related and I might have to wait till they level out more. Or maybe working nights has something to do with it! Oh well gotta pay the bills somehow 🙂

Well what a crazy week of weather we have had! Severe weather and freeze warnings but that is what it is to live in the mid-west.  We love it and look forward the spring warmth and flowers that follow. I love my garden:

Now on to my weigh in. I have not lost any BUT not gained either!

I have started my 2nd, that’s right 2nd, period since starting this way of eating and I am in complete shock! I have NEVER had 2 consecutive cycles on my own without a prescription or supplements. Like i have said before I cannot say enough good things about this way of eating! There is hope for those who suffer from PCOS/Endo, the only thing I worry about is falling pregnant.

Hope everyone is staying safe in these storms here in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. Watching tornado warnings and tracking a few 🙁 Be safe! Other than the severe storms I love spring! We are so close to the official start of spring and great camping weather. We love to camp and plan on doing several weekends this year.

Now on to my weigh in:

As you can see I am up .4 pounds but I am not worried at all because my clothes are still getting loser and I am feeling great!  I am sure I didn’t lose any because I didn’t drink as much water this weekend or take my supplements like I should. Weekends are hard for me because I am either working my second job or spending the time getting the house cleaned and laundry caught up! Such is life right now and I am loving it 🙂

Well that is all for now, please share and subscribe to be entered into my drawing of a beautiful essential oil diffuser necklace here.
