Yes people, I am still here.
Let me just say this has been a crazy year! I graduated from college, go me!!!I also have to update you on the grandkids, we now have 6!! Our newest one was born May 21st, 7 weeks early! But she’s doing great!! The grace of God!! Her name is Lydia Ann, and of course like the others she is beautiful! Takes after her Meme!!
I have been trying to figure out why my weight loss has stalled. Yes I have cheated and said” I just don’t care anymore”. But over all especially since I got back from vacation in June, I have stuck with it! I have gone up and down the same 5 lbs. I eventually went to the Dr. and had tests run. Over all I am healthy, except they did find that I am insulin resistant. What that means is that everything I eat turns to sugar and then my body won’t use the insulin like it should. In other words pre-diabetic. So that makes it harder to lose wight, plus place premenopause on top of that and WOW!!! crazy types of hormones going on inside.
Now I don’t know if any of you have done any bio-hacking on your own body but that is what I am up to now.
I have said there is not a “one size fits all diet,” and that is what I am trying to find what helps me. Until I get my blood sugars regulated, it will be a battle. Heck it may still be a battle. But this is my life and I totally believe I can cure this with food! SO I am now embarking on doing a Ketogenic diet. Which is high fat, to keep me satisfied, and low carb, so I don’t spike the blood sugar, plus moderate protein, not too much so it doesn’t turn to sugar, but enough where I am healthy.
Yes it’s hard figuring out how much to eat and when. I eat only when I am hungry; One of the hardest things to do I have found, is to stop eating when your are satisfied. Sometimes food just taste sooooo good! That in itself can become a problem. I have also started walking, I try to go at least 3 days a week, 2-3 miles a day. I would prefer 5 days, because darn it I just feel better when I walk!
Also some exciting news for me is that I was on the great Jimmy Moore’s podcast, Low carb conversations! Jimmy is a friend of mine, and being on his show was an honor. While I’m at it, may I just say his new book Keto Clarity is fantastic! I will be doing a review of it soon and I’d recommend it to everyone!!
Another news flash, I am in school again! Yes I know, but hey I love it! This time its to finishing my culinary degree. Maybe just maybe people then will believe what I say about nutrition!
Well my peeps its been real fun, writing again and I plan to do it more often. I do apologize that if you’ve been waiting for me to do this and just got tired of waiting! Life does get in the way!!
Remember eat real food, and take care of this temple you have, God only gave you one!
Much love!
