Keto and Weight Loss

Where do I begin?!? I have needed to write an update for so many weeks and time just kept going on and on. School ended last week and the end of the school year is always so crazy…now that is over, I can finally give you an update. So I started Keto back on March […]

First two weeks of Keto – Weekly Weigh In

So, I have been on Keto for two weeks. Two weeks of eating less than 20 grams of Net Carbs a day and trying to stay under my protein and calorie goal. Let me start with the very beginning. My husband and I decided to commit to Keto. We decided to do it together (which […]

Keto For Me

I’ve gone to the dark side… Or I should say the anti-white side. Anti white as in NO sugar, flour, or carbs. I have gone full on Keto and I have to say I LOVE it. A little back story for you.  I was “going to” start Keto back in August.  I had a friend […]

Dealing with Disappointment

I was chosen for a weight loss competition.  I was going to kill it.  I was chosen as one contestant out of hundreds that applied.  I was one of three chosen.  I was chosen and then I was disqualified. The specifics don’t necessarily matter.  I was disqualified because I had already been losing weight through […]

January 2019 – Goals

It’s a new month.  It’s a new year.  It’s time for some goal setting. If any of you have been with me for a while you know I’m all about setting goals.  I KNOW how important setting goals are and I will set goals monthly in order to keep myself focused on what I want […]

Happy New Year 2019

Happy New Year! Yes, it’s been a while.  Too long…  I hope to start my blog back up now that I am “used to” being a mom.  And I have like 100 pounds to lose…so there’s that. I am hoping to start the blog back up so thanks for hanging in here with me.  Quick […]

Failure Leads to Success

So, I failed.  It happens.  I was talking to my mom the other day and she reminded me that failure is not truly “failing.”  It is a cornerstone to greatness.  It is another chance to do it again and this time, do it differently. As many of you know, I am a teacher.  I have […]

I Failed

I Have Failed… I have gained weight. I have gained most of my weight back that I lost.  It’s embarrassing.  I don’t like to fail. I have successfully lost over 100 pounds and then gained back almost 75 of them.  Yes, I had a baby.  Yes, I had two major life stressors within the last […]

Slippery Slope

This weight loss thing is a slippery slope.  Have you ever tried to climb up a hill with ice or snow or wet grass?  You get going, very carefully and very methodically and then as soon as you ever so slightly go off balance, WHOOSH!  Down the hill you go. That’s how my weight loss […]

2017 Goals

I told you this year is all about Balance.  One thing I didn’t tell you is this year is all about simplifying my life too!  I think when you need balance, the simpler and more organized your life is, the easier it will be to maintain balance. Delaney’s room is my favorite room in the […]
