What an adventure this has turned out to be. Today I am writing from Leavenworth, WA. We drove out on Tuesday, January 4th, 2022. At the time they were forecasting some snow but not enough to close any of the passes down so we would have been back by the 6th. So much snow has… Continue reading Stuck in Leavenworth, WA
I haven't posted in quite some time, I don't know if it's because I have felt like I have failed or because I wanted to wait until I could say that I was starting over on this journey. I stopped eating Keto for a few months now because I wanted to get my cholesterol under… Continue reading Keto Journey Update: I fell completely off, it happens!
Failure is such a strong word. I fell completely off!!! It has been so hard getting back on track. I gave myself the excuse that my cardiologist wanted me to stop Keto. I shouldn't have gotten so way off track. I also told myself that this Summer, I could count on putting in hours with… Continue reading Keto Update: Failing & Gaining

I wish I could say that it has been smooth sailing since my keto-versary but it hasn't. I decided that because of my labs coming back with high cholesterol, I would schedule an appointment to check out my heart. Two weeks ago I went and saw a cardiologists for some symptoms I was experiencing along… Continue reading Keto Update: Visit to Cardiology.
Hello there everyone! I first want to start by apologizing for not updating sooner. I have been going through some things lately mostly related to my health. On December 12th, 2020 I hit my one year on Keto/Low Carb. I should have been way more excited about this but in November, I started to feel… Continue reading One Year KETO-versary! The good and the bad.
I have been thirty-nine officially for 2 hours!! What?! It is my birthday today and I wasn't too excited at first. Mostly because it is the last year of my 30s! Ouch!
