The day the earth stood still.

I slept not much last night. My daughter hogged the bed. Still tho, it was a really decent day.

I love my husband a lot. He saved my sanity when I got all nauseous and lightheaded. Hours later and I’m finally starting to feel functioning again. I even ate dinner.

Alright. Macros, then sleep.

Days with chicken always have too much protein. Chicken is so delicious though. I didn’t care about fat today. I just wanted to keep down food.

Cheddar Sausage Biscuits.

I found a recipe and have been tweaking it for over a week. All that work has paid off because ohmygoodness, I have created something that is easy to make, is relatively inexpensive, tastes amazing, stores well, can be eaten cold or hot, is a great grab and go food aaaaaaand has perfect macros.

Without further ado.

Warm blankets, but cold feet.

It’s 11am and I still haven’t eaten. I’m sure I would have eaten. I’m hungry enough to eat. But I have a babe sleeping on my lap and a dog sleeping on my feet.

I’ve had water and coffee. Doesn’t seem very substantial now that I can’t get to the kitchen. It’s not an urgent need to eat, but man, my head kinda hurts.

As soon as this little munchkin awakes, I’ll get food. For now I’m considering this a happy accident and allowing it to be a longer fast than just dinner to breakfast.

This is where my sunshine kicks in.

The joyness of day two.

Today rocked. Like really fucking rocked. That feels so amazing!

Look at those beautiful numbers! Because I’m nursing a little one, I allow for more carbs. Even still, net carbs today was 26. Not worried about it.

I *feel* good. I feel good about my choices and the foods I ate and the continued determination to keep going.

This morning I also started vitamin d3. I used to take this every winter and kinda forgot about it.

Today I had a banana, split up throughout the day. I didn’t want to eat a whole one at once and spike anything. It’ll be the only sugary carb thing and for now the plan is to do that every other day. After a lifetime’s worth of trouble not being able to poo, I finally found something that makes me regular. A banana a day. But I’m willing to see how every other day banana’ing goes. I just refuse to be constipated for weeks at a time ever again.

I am off now to finish the first episode of The OA and then sleep!

Seriously tho. I feel so amazing. And so damn proud. Yay me!!

Day two!

My posts will die down. But for now I feel all accountability connected and want to keep checking in with myself.

I want to swerve around any of the crappy feeling as much as possible, so I put heavy whipping cream in my coffee this morning for extra fat. I think that felt okay, but using the bacon fat, from my bacon, to cook my eggs, was bleh. Too much heavy bacon fat. Tomorrow, if I have bacon at all, I’ll use coconut oil on my eggs instead. I’m all for coconut oil and butter and bone broth fat, but bacon fat is just too heavy most of the time.

Also, I could use a good massage. My body is killing me. Not keto related. Just sore.

One day at a time.

I’m really proud of myself. I never intended to start today, but here I sit having successfully completed my food goals for the day.

I was never hungry. I felt productive. I cleaned out our fridge and it’s beauuuutiful. I shared my goals with my family and they’re all supportive of me.

More important than anything else I feel like I’m working my way toward healthy and that feels better than everything.
