Hey 👋 It’s been awhile! How are you? I’d love to catch up, hear how you’re doing, and jump back into some great discussions together 💬 about health & happiness and life goals.❣️
I’ve missed our chats!
I haven’t shared updates on the blog or sent an email in awhile because, well – to be honest: it’s been a really hard year. I think I’m finally ready to talk about it all. Especially what I’ve learned, what’s working for me, and “health hacks” I’m testing that might be useful for others that are struggling with various issues too.
If you like the idea of a safe space to have some great talks with a fun community, sharing our goals and wins, getting MOTIVATED, working on health & happiness together… I hope you’ll rejoin me here – even if you’re no longer eating low carb. 😉 And if you want to start back, or would like to drop a few pounds, I’m definitely here to support you for that! 💕
What Do You MOST Need Right Now?
I think for me, now that I’m more well again (I’m getting there at least!) I really miss and most need our sense of community, and positive encouraging discussions. I’d love to hear what you feel would ADD to your life right now, and talk about creative ways we can achieve ALL the things together. 🙌
The last time we talked (earlier this year, months ago) my daughter had just come back home and was eating low carb with me, and losing weight right along with us! So much time has flown by since then… I’ve had a hard time figuring out where to start back.
I’ve also been very sick this year, so with hardly eating (and barely cooking) I didn’t really have many helpful food diaries or good recipes & meal ideas to share with you. That’s also why I haven’t hosted a low carb challenge this year (yet!!), because: zero energy. 🥴
I think though, that a lot of the ways I’ve coped and the meals I’ve been eating, would have been really helpful – if I had been up for writing. So we can definitely discuss those things too. 😉
As a super quick recap and catch-up, if you’ve been reading along for awhile…
Aaron left last winter, almost a year ago now, and I haven’t decided to date again. I got sick – and have stayed sick, so working through a long recovery (still). My father passed away in December (you might remember I was taking care of him for awhile), my adult daughter came home and “went keto” with me, Slim died in April (my senior dane and sidekick of 12 years) … and I have since fostered and ultimately adopted Luna Rose – a two year old female dane pup. On good days, I’m teaching her to hike 🙂 and we spend as much time outdoors together as possible. 🥰
I’ve remained “consistently keto” through it all, eating very low carb, with a big focus on nutrition and my overall health. I stay as active as I can, given the circumstances and health challenges, but even with both combined – I’ve gained weight over the past year.
Post-viral syndrome has knocked my metabolic health totally out of whack. 🤦
I’d like to share what I’m doing to correct that, or things I’m testing at least. Plus how I’m not just coping through it all, but actively working on JOY and overall mental health – and on being the HAPPIEST healthiest version of myself, no matter what the day brings.
(thriving vs just surviving!)
Hopefully some of those points interest you? That plus new meal ideas, low carb grocery finds I’ve been loving lately (like: bread cheese!!), weight loss motivation, and getting refocused on things that bring JOY and positivity.❣️
I’ll leave it there for now, and see where the discussion takes us…
In closing, for now, I’d like to ask:
How can I be of service to you? (I miss that!)
What’s going on in your life, what are your current challenges or struggles, and what do YOU most need right now as we get through the rest of this 2021 year?
I look forward to catching up!
