I’ve had a slow start to the new year. Things have been really hard for me lately 😕 and I haven’t kept in touch like I should. Not by email at least – I’ve been sharing updates on Facebook and Instagram when I can about what’s going on.
Speaking of, my friend @snoweonketo shared this and 😂 it was totally the laugh I needed today!!
Of course, like it or not, time keeps passing, so we can either get closer to where we want to be in our life… or keep getting further away from that. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to get back to healthy & happy & FUN!
I’ve been working on getting back to some sort of normal routine, and back to my goals. Then this crossed my screen, and I thought it looked like something FUN we could all do together as a group…
It’s a FREE 30-Day Keto Kickstart Program hosted by Perfect Keto where you get a simple plan, low carb recipes, and daily motivation & new ideas.
I signed up for it last year, but got sidetracked and never finished it. 🤦♀️
We’ve all been there I’m sure: good intentions, start something, get excited and motivated, then get distracted and fall flat. That is NOT how I want to start this year out. And I decided today…
It’s never too late to start fresh!
I could use the motivation and accountability. 🧐 What about you?
Since I’m not feeling up for preparing and hosting the usual New Year Challenge I do every year, I thought we could do this instead – and do it together. Then I’ll kick off OUR challenge next month. I’m sort of playing with the start date of February 15th. What do you think?
Here’s what we’ll do…
Starting this Monday (January 11th) we’ll have a weekly weigh-in every Monday for 30 days, and I’ll post here about the 30-Day Keto Kickstart Program as we go through it, so we can all share ideas and discuss the daily notes – and keep each other on track and motivated.
It’s free to join, by the way!
I’ll also post daily updates as we follow the program together in our private Low Carb Challenge Facebook Group if you want to follow along there too.
If you’re IN leave a comment and share your goals!
And of course sign up for the free keto kickstart program so we’re all following along together.
I thought it would be fun to have live video chats too, so I’ll keep you posted about that – when and where to watch them, or watch the replays. I’ll embed the live chats and replays on my blog for people that aren’t using social media right now. (I totally respect that – social media is a little nutty lately, hey?! 👀 lol)
On a personal note…
Just a quick update, and I’ll keep this short. I know a lot of people have had a really tough year. Mine was actually going just fine, but it all fell apart, um: more like CRASHED AND BURNED 🔥 as the year came to an end.
Aaron left me, that 4 year relationship is OVER, then 8 days later I mysteriously came down with Covid – and have unfortunately remained sick for 52 days now with what I can only assume is post-viral syndrome, also being called “long covid” … and in the middle of all that, my father passed away.
The last two months have just been HARD. 💔
I’ve been getting through it all one day at a time, or most days: one hour at a time. I feel like I am finally on the other side of AWFUL and slowly picking the pieces of my life back up and putting them back in place.
I’ll share more with you about my covid journey, as I’ve learned a lot along the way. For now I’ll just say, I’m SO glad I was in optimal health when this hit me! Besides the fact that it has my immune system on overdrive in some trippy cycle, I had a VERY mild case otherwise, and I’m grateful for that.
I would love to hear from you, and how things are going with you…
Let’s catch up!
And let me know if you’re interested in doing this Keto Kickstart together, or at least following along. That sounded like a fun way for us to get back on a roll together. 🙂
p.s. This free Keto Kickstart is hosted by Perfect Keto, which is where I get the unflavored collagen powder I use daily. I also use their bars and love their low carb peanut butter cookies. If you decide to order anything from Perfect Keto, my discount code is LOWCARBTRAVELER for 15% off – just add that code at checkout for the savings. 💕
They just came out with a brand new Banana Bread Keto Bar, by the way. 😉
