It's been a hot minute

Well its been forever since I was actually on here and wrote anything or even checked up. I need to get back on to doing that more often! Yes I know I know I think I say that in every update post I do and it seems like it never happens but I do want to make this more of a regular thing again. I am very frequent on instagram right now I post just about everyday there my food of course.

So here is a little update for you I have been 9 months Keto now and I am officially down -51.4lbs!!! YAY HAPPY DANCE!!

I feel so much better and have so much more confidence when it comes to how I feel and look about myself. I have no idea if that last sentence makes any sense but oh well its staying. I have been extremely busy with work and being a single mom and trying to keep helping out around the house here but the struggle is real. I am so tired right now it is crazy. I feel like I don't have enough time in the day to get everything I need to get done done. I started waking up at 6 am every morning just to try and give myself more time to get things done but then I'm still staying up till 11pm working. So in conclusion of that coffee is my friend and I probably drink way to much of it at this point.

L is officially finished Kindergarten and going into grade one next year 😭where did my baby go! She is so smart, I know I know everyone says that about their kids but in all honesty some of the stuff that comes out of this kids mouth is crazy I even have to google it some days to figure out what she is talking about and most of the time she is right and I feel like an idiot.

At this very moment I feel exhausted and emotional and didn't know where to put that need to get my frustrations out/vent so here I am writing this. once I'm done here it's back to cleaning the house and trying to get as much work done as possible before I take a day off for Canada Day! Yes if you didn't know already I am Canadian!

Well until I get back on here and do some more of this writing stuff so long for now!

Changes In My Life...

I have been really thinking about the past lately and looking at what I have done in the last year with myself. I got into a really dark place where In my head I was going to be over weight and hate myself for the rest of my life I had tried almost everything. I was working out but wasn't really loosing weight and I was getting back up to that weight I told myself that I would never let myself get to again. The highest weight I have ever been was 256 lbs I was 248lbs and had given up hope of ever being at my goal weight or feeling good about myself again. I really let myself go and didn't care at all I stopped wearing make up wore my hair up 90% of the time and wore yoga pants and big sweaters because those were the only things that fit me.

One day I decided that I was done with weight watchers and not sticking to it and that I was going to start looking into this Keto diet that everyone was talking about. I started doing my research and gathering information. I then decided heck I'm going to try this and see how it goes. The only way I was going to succeed was to be able to get the rest of my family on board It took about a week to get them all on board my dad was all for it right off the bat. My mom on the other hand took a little more convincing to give up pasta and breads.

I just posted a Keto 6 month update. I'm happy to say that in those 6 months I have lost 38.8 lbs almost 40lbs and I feel great! In the past couple weeks I have noticed a lot of changes in myself. I have been trying on old clothes and clothes that I haven't ever worn because they were always too small and am now able to fit in them. I have started wearing makeup again because I now feel good about myself and the way I look. I am motivated again and feel so determined to keep going with this lifestyle.

I have found a passion for cooking. I used to try and make meals before but was never confident in what I made. That has all changed I am making dinner just about every night and I am experimenting with different foods and how to make the same chicken 50 different ways. I am adapting recipes to make them Keto friendly and just really embracing it all.

Yes I still have down days and crappy days. I still have days were I feel like crap. But those days have become a lot less.

I am happy and I am so looking forward to what the future is like and where I can go from here.

KETO 6 month + Update!

So I have been Keto since September 21st 2018. I am currently down -36.4lbs YAY! I love Keto It was honestly one of the best decisions I made to switch over to Keto. I was on Weight watchers for a while and the most I lost on that was 15lbs. I also gave up a lot on Weight watchers. Keto I have been enjoying making meals almost every day for my family as they have joined me in this journey. I find once I got used to what I could and couldn't have it got a lot easier to follow to the point where I know what I can eat and the things I can't eat I don't want and if I do want it its ok once in a while to have a little but just get right back on track the next day. I have stalled a couple times where I wouldn't loose any weight for a couple weeks but that seems to be pretty normal. I am not letting stalls get me discouraged I mean loosing 36.4lbs in 6 + months is pretty amazing and I would be a happy camper is in the next 6 + months I lost another -36.4lbs. If I could do that that would mean that in a total of 15 months of Keto I would be at my goal weight. I am totally committed to that. My Clothes fit better I have gone from a size 14 jean to a size 10!! I have lost inches and weight and I feel great. I am also enjoying cooking and experimenting with food. I post most of my food on my instagram page.

She's so sweet!

Oh what a day today has been! Today my dad asked if L and I wanted to go to the store with him. I of course said yes because your girl loves...
