Week 4: Ketogenic diet update

This week was a little disappointing. I lost .6 lbs which is going in reverse for me, and my hubby maintained. Seems like I need to adjust. I need to workout more and I think I need to be more intentional about portion control for him.

Something I’m going to start doing is filling his plate with a reasonable portion and then leaving the rest in the kitchen to be packaged. That way if I or the girls want more we can get it but he doesn’t know how much there is or feel as much desire to keep eating.

I did work out once last week yay for the blog pushing me. However it has been crazy pants over here with trying to get our apartment ready to rent. Between walk throughs, no shows from walkthroughs and getting repairs and cleaning done and doing everything normal in our own home there hasn’t been a lot of extra time.

That and I started writing a second book!! Happy dance!! It’s fiction this time, a Christian romance about a girl who has bipolar disorder. I’m thinking about submitting it to Hallmark as well since they are accepting manuscripts this year.

We are making progress though. The shower is all done and looking amazing.

We also got a light in and just have mostly little things left and a few doors to install.

I’m loving keto. We made some awesome recipes this week including two pumpkin desserts. Out of season I know. They were very yummy though.

I’m slowly working through my overfull fridge from shopping while hypomanic and not listening to my own stops. Ugh. I had a voice screaming in my head that I’m spending too much and I did not listen. The compulsion was very strong. So I put myself on a spending hiatus for a month.

So far that is going well and it tends to give me the break I need to see we have too much and it’s good timing since we need to clear out our second fridge and give it to the renters to use.

This post has been an update on many things and all over the place a little like my brain is right now. However, I have to say how much I am loving writing right now. It is so much fun and my capacity is increasing significantly. Some days I have written over 3k words which never used to happen.

Alas hopefully next week we have better results.
