New Year’s Resolutions

Completed an 8 day water fast- back on strict keto and every other day intermittent fasting; quit coffee, because it gives me reflux; started imbibing homemade bone broth regularly; incorporated mini trampoline rebounding into my Fitbit 10k or more steps a day; started Jillian Michael’s Beginner 30 Day Shred.

Still alive, focused on my health… and not very chatty right now.

Jess- 3 Days Post Cheat Day & 3 lbs Down: Keto Over 40- The Stress & Obese Teen Edition

Down another half pound since Monday morning- 161 lbs or about 3 lbs lost of cheat day weight (half)

11 lbs gone in 16 DAYS- down from 14 lbs in 12 days

Wearing my 26 yr old junior college sweatshirt and it fits!

It’s been a very stressful week. My 3 yr old is sick again with croup, my mother was just moved into assisted living, and other things like stress eating and exercise.

Trying to get my very overweight 19 yr old son with Aspergers into keto and yoga with me- very worried about his health. He is 5’10 and 276 now. Today will be his first day.

HALLOWEEEN!!!!(AND KETO AND ZOMBIE KARDASHIANS)

A little peek into our day, before trick or treat- it was 35F here in SW Michigan- absolutely freeeeeezing (1-2C for the rest of you).

We rushed to get candy for the manny in the house to dole out while we took the girl into the cold.

I had exactly 35 minutes to decide what to dress up as- and accidentally turned into a Zombie Kardashian- or a Game of Thrones greyscale Kardashian– still not sure which.

Maisie dressed as a brown haired Elsa… she was over the moon. Below is a pic with her brother- who is dressed as a sort of emo Waldo who doesn’t wish to be found- but will still take your candy-

I did, however, successfully stay keto and stayed out of the sweets today- so hurray for me!

started yoga 2 days ago

I have been slowwwwly trying to strengthen my core and back muscles again since my back procedure. I am not a fan of pain pills, even if my doctor like to prescribe them to me like peanuts.

No thank you.

Started yoga 2 days ago- the first day I was only able to do 12 minutes! My body was SO stiff!
Tonight I was able to complete 20 minutes, with a toddler crawling over and UNDER me.

My back (knock wood) feels FANTASTIC even with the little bit I’ve been doing. It’s encouraging me to add a morning session to my practice. I am hoping to be able to eventually be able to do Buti Yoga when I am strong enough.

I have Comcast, so I ordered a monthly subscription to Gaiam TV, which gives you loads of yoga/workout videos to use.

I also have a gym membership that I paid a year in advance (for the entire family). I don’t use it, because I have no one to watch the baby when I go. It’s open 24 hours, but by the time someone is home to watch Maisie, the last thing I want to do is drive across town to go to the gym.

Working out at home appeals to me.
