Where do i even start? I guess from the beginning. Oh, yes! First off i will let you know that i am not a writer. I actually dislike writing. I was never really good at it. For those of you that do write, please be gentle on me. lol
I am a Canadian mom of 2 beautiful teen girls and wifey to my best friend of 23 years (married 16 years). I can see in the future that we will be that old couple walking down the street holding hands. I love all three of you very much.
Like all moms, i am a alarm clock, cook, maid, life guard, janitor, waitress, teacher, nurse, handyman, food tester, security officer, photographer, counselor, chauffeur, event planner, personal assistant, ATM, Seamstress, Mrs. Fix-It, Stain Removal Expert, Bodyguard, and so much more! I am on call 24/7 for the rest of my life and i LOVE IT!
Fast Forward to my recent adventure…
I started this journey on January 5th 2017 first starting with working out on my treadmill at home (like I always do every monday lol) then on January 23, 2017, actually it was probably the day before, i came across a video on Youtube mentioning that sugar is bad. Ok, I always knew that it was bad, but something inside me clicked. On Jan 23rd, i decided to slowly drop all added sugary stuff from my diet. First to go was the dreaded Coca Cola! My favorite was the Classic. yes, it was my weakness… ask anyone. lol Then it was sugary carb stuff like breads, crackers, cereals, pastas ect. Much to my surprise i didn’t have any problems. Unlike the other times i tried to go on a diet I felt like complete utter crap for days – massive headache, fatigue, and all that comes with sugar withdrawal. If you have ever had that feeling you know exactly what I mean. Once the sugar and bad carbs were gone the cravings went along with them. During this change I lost about 15 pounds. Yay Me! :0)
On March 1st 2017, I started to eat low carb high fat ( LCHF ) then added 18:6 intermittent fasting. I will talk about that journey in future posts. As of May 25th i have lost 42lbs. So far there is no looking back. I will say that it won’t be an easy lifestyle change (not a diet) but I do have to say that i am enjoying it so far.
Join me on my journey!
