In a Hurry?

Sometimes, people cheat on their diets not out of weakness but more out of necessity. In my opinion,there is no sense in pulling yourself out of ketosis simply because something came up and you didn’t have time to meal prep. Or maybe, you just don’t feel like cooking. I fit into a little bit of…

62 Days and Counting

So, its been 62 days since I entered into Ketogenesis. I am still losing weight. I still feel full of energy; my mood is overall lifted and I have not dealt with any inflammation in my hands, knees or anywhere really. Whereas prior to going keto I felt like a big horrible unhealthy inflamed mess….

A Decadent Treat – Lily’s

Wait, Fingernails?!

Its always fantastic when you notice additional benefits to a lifestyle change that you did not expect. Never in my life have I had long nails, unless they were glued on at a local salon. I was always a nail biter growing up, and when I wasn’t anymore, my nails were still brittle and thin….

The Naked Truth

A friend once told me “This isn’t a practice life.” Those words have been repeated background noise in my life through various trials and tribulations since they were typed to me via LiveJournal decades ago. They became my motivator on the day I realized that if I did not make some serious changes to the…
