Keto Big Mac Salad

I saw this on Facebook last week and suddenly a huge craving for a McDees Big Mac hit me. Years before I went Paleo and now Keto-Paleo, fast food was my emotional crutch and Big Macs played a part of that. Now I’m dealing with issues from the past in a positive way and get to enjoy the my “Healthy Big Mac”.

On the BRIGHT Side

Went to my optometrist yesterday to get some new glasses and saw this wonderful reminder to “Always look on the BRIGHT side of life” in his office.

Love his positivity but hate that he reminded me that due to the “number of candles of my cake” a stronger prescription is required.

With both in mind, I’m grateful that I’m on my way to ensure that my 40’s are going be great because of clean eating, increased exercise and self love.

Face-to-Face Friday


A few weeks back, I put a shout-out on Facebook asking for family & friends to send me photos from the past few years. Here’s my “Before” and “In transition” photos.

It’s a Physical, Emotional & Spiritual Journey


My transformation is not only physically but emotionally and spiritually. My weight loss journey includes God. Last night I had a wonderful time with my two friends at a TobyMac concert. Three years ago if anyone would have told me I’d suggest going to a Christian concert, I wouldn’t believe them…I LOVED it!

Fitbit & Foot

ACCOUNTABILITY POST: Yesterday and today were pretty good workout days despite my swollen foot. Thankfully I’ve got my follow up appointment this week…Sure am hoping it’s not another health obstacle

Faith, Fitness & Weight Loss Goals


I’m still aiming for my short term goal of breaking the 300 lbs mark and am confident that it’ll happen next week. Next up is a 5 month goal to get to 250 lbs in time for my summer road trip in July.

Fitness Accountability Post

Got my Fitbit steps in, struggled big time during my workout to burn calories because my foot is hurting but managed to do 45+ minutes.

Keto-Paleo Food Diary

Eating was on point except for one thing…not pictured is the whole pint of Halo Top ice cream I ate -24 grams of sugar and 280 calories. Less snacks tomorrow!

Self Love

We all need GRACE.

A Budget’s BFF: Turkey

Whoever said that turkeys were just for Thanksgiving and Christmas, never had to live on a budget!

Several resolutions were made for 2017. Keeping on tight grocery/dining out budget in order to save up money for a family road trip to my hometown this summer was one of them.

That means that meals are planned around that week’s sales flyer, items on clearance are bought and taking out the turkey that was bought on sale this past Christmas to ensure that February’s budget is close to target happens!

This week’s suppers:

Monday- Roasted turkey, Paleo Dressing Balls and a simple salad.

Tuesday- Hubby’s Birthday Leftovers (ribs, bacon Brussels sprouts and honemade sweet potato fries).

Wednesday- Sliced turkey, slow cooker green beans and salad.

Thursday- Roast beef, green beans and salad.

Friday- Homemade Turkey soup.

Saturday- Campfire hotdogs and veggies.

Sunday- Hamburger salad and/or leftovers.
