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.
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!
My sister still has cancer, my mom is in a facility getting her bipolar/dementia meds leveled out, I am going through serious family problems and experiencing long term ptsd as a result of past child abuse.
Maisie is doing wonderfully! She is in Montessori school and is three now. She also does ballet/tap and adores it.
I have been on a ketogenic diet this year since July 10, 2017 per my cardiologist’s suggestion. I have also been using/wearing a fitbit charge 2, which has absolutely changed me from sedentary to active and I love it!
I am starting a vlog to chronicle my keto journey and just to be able to vent… xo
Yesterday, they aired an episode of Peppa Pig where pregnant Mommy Rabbit talks about having a baby in her tummy.
Maisie was very into the episode.
Me: “Maisie, do you have a baby in YOUR tummy?”
Maisie laughed and laughed when I suggested it-
Daddy: “Maisie, does MOMMY have a baby in HER tummy?”
Maisie laughed again and shook her head ‘no’.
Daddy: “Maisie, where is Mommy’s baby?”
Maisie laughed again and grabbed my boobs.
FOR THE RECORD- I am NOT PREGNANT.
People say that my kid eats better than they do and this might be true.
I love to cook and I am not crazy about ‘conventional’ American food at all.
I am attempting to limit our red meat consumption and have been doing a lot of vegan and vegetarian meals lately.
Luckily, my Maisie is not a very picky girl and she has a healthy appetite (and is consistently off the charts for height and a very healthy weight- but not fat- ).
She basically eats everything that we eat- which can be vegan, carnivore, or any number of foreign foods, depending on my mood.
You’ll see a lot of persimmons and mandarin oranges lately on her plate because it is in season and her fave (and I bought a case of persimmons!).
Here are some highlights from her meals on Instagram.
Maisie's breakfast: herbed egg tartine with vegetarian apple smoked sausage, Apple butter fried apple with pan warmed brie cheese, mandarin oranges, and kale apple pouch #ToddlerMeals #KidsBreakfast #vegetariantoddler #vegetarian #toddlerfood #food #foodie #foodgasm #foodgram #foodpics #instafood #brie #tartine #eggs
We bought her the book “Good Night Moon” today. When R read it the first time to her, he discovered that she started bawling during the “good night” parts.
She absolutely fell to pieces! She had him read it to her a few more times and always started crying and getting sad at the same parts!
This was her first time (well, she made him read it 4 or 5x in a row) reading it…
After this vid was made, she ‘read’ it TO us (by turning the pages and saying “good night” to each page)- by the end of the book again she was pouting/sobbing and wiping tears.
This is very unusual. This child LOVES books, but they’ve never made her so emotional.
