I've been in and out of the keto diet or ketogenic lifestyle, if you will, for the past 2 years. The first time was my most in depth time and I was able to lose about 30lbs in 3 months, which was crazy! It was the first time in my life that I saw real results in a relatively short amount of time and every day that I saw a few ounces or pounds come off that scale or saw my jean size shrink from a 8/10 to a size 4 was everything I needed to keep my spirit up, my discipline in gear and my motivation on track.
I've had a lot of family and friends ask me where to find out more information about the ketogenic lifestyle and its always a very long text because there are so many great places and people to learn from.
These are my favorite Ketogenic Resources though:
Do you like journaling or currently have a journal that you use consistently? You are ah-mazing! I want to be you by the end of 2019...that's one of my goals anyways.
I definitely like the idea of journaling and/or using a planner, but have always found it difficult to keep up. Back in high school, we were given a planner to keep up with schoolwork, tasks to-do, schedule tests and quizzes coming up... obviously I went to school pre-cell phone era, yeesh that totally aged me.
Anyways, my point is that in those years, I was very organized and productive. Why didn't I continue the habit? Looking back, I really wish I did.
Look at those kids, that's what we were back then, just a couple of kids.
I love those kids.
Looking at them gives me all the warm feels. Takes me back to when we were sweet all the time, romantic, and wistful and couldn't keep our hands off of each other between traffic lights. I remember them clearly.
I love Danny. Its safe to say that I love this man more today than back then. I am so very proud of the relationship that we have cultivated between the two of us and the family we have built, the little humans that we're bringing up and that they seem to be well-adjusted, warm-hearted, and filled with personality.
Our short 6 years married and 9 years together have proven to me that all the roadblocks and bumps we've encountered and weathered together make the sweet times so much more meaningful.
It has to be said though that getting through the rougher moments requires a bit of elbow grease. Resolving an issue takes time and a whole LOT of communication. Sometimes, my personality type just takes to shutting down when I'm not operating as by best possible self.
