  • Give A Little, Get A Lot

    2/24/2018 7:45:23 PM, by NANCYANNE55

    Every morning when I get up at o-dark-thirty I put the kettle on for tea for me, and make coffee for my husband. This is a new thing for me. I used to just make my tea and get on with things. Pausing to prepare coffee for him when I don't drink it myself means a lot to him. Almost every mornin... Read more

    Thank you all for your support on my previous blogs! I’m back in ketosis and feeling better. I had some terrible carb cravings after eating them again, but they’ve passed and I’m feeling normal again. I managed to clean my kitchen sink (which is huge since I’ve been avoiding it for we...

  • Bad week

    2/10/2018 2:25:19 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    I had a bad last half of the week. My job was really stressing me out. I used to think I’d stay with this company for years, but now I’m to the point that, at my 1 year anniversary (If my team dynamic does not drastically improve, which I’m trying to help facilitate every day), I’m plann...

    I posted a picture of these delicious muffins I made last week. Since then, several people have asked me to post the recipe. These are fabulous enough that I feel like they deserve their own blog. And here we are! The trick to this recipe is two ingredients that I am pretty sure they will no... Read more

  • So HOW did I give up sugar?

    2/4/2018 1:46:13 PM, by NANCYANNE55

    Someone asked me, after reading my last blog about giving up sugar, how I did it. Did I ease out of it? Sub something else in for sugar? Go into a medically-induced coma until the time period for cravings passed? The truth is that I just quit cold turkey. And like I said in my last blog, it... Read more

  • A really good day!!!!

    1/29/2018 10:06:21 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    Today I ate keto, felt great all day at work, had green tea and lots of veggies, and had enough energy to hit the gym! I feel like I’m really transforming and my energy levels and emotions are steady and high. So glad I started this diet! Now I’m going to sleep 9 hours and have a rest day... Read more

    1/27/2018 3:11:13 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    I’m on day 4 of the ketogenic diet (very low carb, high fat, moderate protein). So far it seems to be going really well! I feel good mentally and physically, the pain is much reduced (barely even any at all!), and I’m losing a lot of water weight. I’m trying to get as much low carb veggies and be... Read more

  • Giving up sugar.....

    1/26/2018 8:14:46 PM, by NANCYANNE55

    I was told by a sweet Spark Friend that they wished I would start blogging again. The truth is that: 1. Now that I'm working 40+ hours outside the home a week, my time to blog is all but gone and B. I can't think of another darned fitness related subject to blog about. But I can talk about... Read more
