If any of you out there have been keeping up with my blog you know two things. First, I haven’t posted on here in over a year and second, I deal with an ongoing struggle with my weight. My good friend Jennifer told me about keto and it intrigued me, although I didn’t know if I could commit fully to the entire lifestyle change. But I am willing to try and willingness is the key to anything.
So I am going to try and incorporate the principles of keto to the best of my ability, coupled with a rigid walking regimen and kayaking with my other friend Jen, to see if I can’t get some weight off and tone this body of mine. My “Jen” squad to the rescue!
I did an initial food shop today and also purged alot of “junk” that doesn’t work with what I’m attempting to do here. Amongst the items in my grocery cart were as follows:
Avocados, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, tomatoes, lemons, organic almond butter, unsweetened cacao powder, coconut milk, fresh spinach, corn on the cob, zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, Skinnygirl sugar free balsamic vinaigrette, chia seeds, a block of parmesan cheese, bacon, pork chops, chicken thighs, pickles, uncured beef franks…and I think that about sums it up. I already had some Stevia at the house so I didn’t have to pick that up. I pinned a couple of keto smoothie recipes and downloaded a keto shopping list to keep me on track too. Isn’t the internet wonderful! Well….for the most part it is but that’s a topic for another blog.
So let me share with you the first thing I prepared for dinner this evening…
Oh my…this omelet was to die for! Definite foodgasm moment over here in Kirby’s Cafe! The ingredients I used were some fried up bacon, fresh spinach (which I wilted in that magical liquid left behind by the bacon), fresh grated parmesan, tomatoes and garnished the top with diced avocados. I paired it with a side of sliced avocados being I remember Jennifer telling me that avocados played a big part in what she ate.
I am very excited about this new journey to becoming the healthiest me possible, as well as for the fact that I have returned to putting pen to paper, or I should say thumb to key, blogging once again. I hope you all haven’t forgotten about me…I look forward to sharing my life with you once again. Trusting the journey…one day at a time.
