People have been asking me how I make my Cloud Bread.

 

I don’t, and can’t take any credit for it.

My mother who believes in me, and is always very supportive to help me to stay on my program does my baking of cloud bread and other things.

She recently made me a huge batch for the freezer, and she tried a variation on the recipe using mayonnaise instead of cream cheese at the same time.  I have the recipes for both, and she even took some pics for us! Thanks mom!

Well I’m tired of Zucchini, I’ve been having it a lot!!

Thought today I would try something new.  I’ve mentioned on social media, I am really super tired of cooking everything.  I need to cook healthy for me, but lack of time and imagination has caused me to just really cook the easy old go-to’s from days gone by.

On the plus side…. At least I have been cooking low carb for me, even it the family doesn’t eat what I eat.

I can usually add a side for me that is healthy (and my go to has been zucchini, that’s why I’m so tired of it.), or if they are having something that is TOTALLY off plan (like they will tonight), I can always make up some cheesy eggs.

Anyway yesterday I decided I’d better get off my butt and cook something.

48 Feeling Great!

My 48th birthday came and went.

I’m okay with that,  in fact in a lot of ways, I’m feeling great about that.

Happy Birthday to ME

Things have been going super good.  Each day I wake up and am excited about the new challenge that the day may bring.

In my last blog post, I talked about setting my intentions for the year so that I am not just waking up with dread thinking “same shit different day”, but instead that I am eager to face the day and what it may bring.

Well, here it is my birthday.  I’m 48 years old.  How the hell did I get to be 48 years old?!

 

As I mentioned to you in my last post I Don’t Have a Clue, I have really been working on getting to a place of clarity and self love.

One of the ways I want to do that is by setting my intentions for this year.

I intend to take time with myself daily, in the mornings just being quiet.  You can call it mediating if you’d like, but I would really just prefer to think of this this time as spending time with my quiet voice.  I have already been doing this for a couple of weeks and really do feel more peaceful, patient and loving.

I intend to treat my body and my health with the highest respect and love.  This to me means that I will continue choosing the food that makes my body happy (which for me means staying in ketosis), I will continue to be active and moving, AND I will stop filling my lungs with toxins.

I intend to follow my inner voice and stop trying to figure out all the answers in my head.  It’s when I start trying to analyze life in my head and listening to the advise others may give me that I often seem to end up in a direction I didn’t mean to go.

I intend to put myself as my top priority because it is only then that I can be of greatest service to others.  This may mean letting go of some of my “people pleasing” ways.

I intend to spend time each day laughing, loving, and being grateful for the many many wonderful things that I already do have in my life.

I intend to let go of all the extra padding of “stuff” that I have in my house and in my heart, so that I am finally free from the clutter.  Getting rid of the clutter means that I will be giving and donating things that could still bring some use to others, or to dispose of things that have outlasted their usefulness.

I intend to find new ways to really love what I do keep and move forward.  Instead of just getting up and saying to myself, “same shit, different day”, I want to get up eager with the possibility of what each new day will bring.  Living life with design and purpose, instead of just by default.

Basically my MAIN intention for this year is to just get the hell out of my own way and stop trying to sabotage everything that I do have.

It’s kind of funny because since Christmas I have really been getting into a state of depression, looking at where my life is and starting to over analyze the “how” did I get here.  In fact, it doesn’t really matter how I got here….  And HERE is not so bad anyway, I have so many things that I am grateful for …. Right Here!

I heard this song by Nickelback the other day – What are you Waiting For?.  It HAS ALWAYS been a favorite, but this year I think it will be my theme song!

I am actually very ready to take the wheel and steer this year.  It is my year to reach for the top, and we shall see where in fact “the top” will take me.

So my Birthday thought on this day as I move into my 48th year is this….

  • Life is good, in fact, life is fantastic!
  • I am expecting and new freer, fuller version of me as I emerge from my cocoon into a beautiful butterfly.
  • I expect abundance, and joy in all areas of my life, including my health, time, relationships, and finances.

I know these are some pretty “deep” and serious thoughts for my birthday.  Now that I have my intentions straight for this coming year, and taken time to get them down in this blog, I plan to spend the rest of my day enjoying family, friends and making good memories.

 

Talk soon,

Heather

I have been silent for a long time on this blog.  It’s mostly a time management issue for me, and the fact that I’ve been going through some stuff (who isn’t?).  I feel like I need to share some of that “stuff” because it may help someone else, but just as much because it might help me.

It’s my birthday coming up this Sunday.   I will be 48 years old.

Do you ever hit a point in your life when you feel like, this is NOT where I wanted to be?  I thought I would be so much further ahead than I am? What the hell went so wrong to lead me to this spot?

That’s kind of where I am at right now.  I feel like a don’t have a clue.

I don’t have a clue about what I want to be (when I grow up lol), where I want to spend my time, what I want my 5 year goals to be, where I want to live, what my true talent is, none of it.

I’ve actually been feeling really lost the last several years.  I’d say since 2009 when my son passed away.  It seems like I get going in a direction and then bammm something happens and I feel like I’m starting over again, and over, and over.

Many good things have happened in the last 8 years, but many things have also happened that I wish hadn’t.  I got involved in a relationship that left me with huge financial loss and emotional ruin, I gained probably 100 pounds, I shuffled paths on what I want to do .

I could go on and on about the things that have happened weren’t where I wanted to go, but I don’t want this to be a blog about blaming or whining or anything like that.  All of those things are in my past.

So many good things have also happened:

  • I have strengthened my relationships with my daughter and my other kids.
  • I have the most precious grandson in the world who is my light and my heart.
  • I’ve lost 155 pounds, and I am in way better health now than I have been in all of my adult life.
  • My family and I have always been (and even more so now) a close group and who I rely on as one of my main safe places to fall (as they say).
  • I have great relationship with my true friends and people who I feel are meant to be with me along this journey.
  • I have a new startup company with a life long friend that was created to be of service to others.

The moments that I have to look back on with love and fondness by far out weigh the bad stuff, and they leave me with a grateful heart…

So why am I feeling like this?

 

Well, as I said before, I feel like I’m in this starting over loop, and right now I feel like I am smack dab in the middle of it again.  Maybe part of it is a reflection on my birthday coming, but a lot of it I think is coming from my need to continue growing.

Maybe all of the “stuff” and what feels like a starting over loop isn’t really anything bad at all, but all about teaching me to expand.

So many people say the “stuff” isn’t failure as much as it is feedback.

Does anyone else ever feel l this way?  I’m certain that I CAN’T be the only one!

The point for me is I am to a place that I am saying “Okay you’re 48 years old, and you don’t have a clue!!!” 

I don’t have all the answers….. and that’s okay.  I’m not suppose to have all the answers.  Lately, I have really been going inward, and am feeling like it’s a discovery.

Two things and people that I have really been focusing on lately to help me get to the realization that I am okay and that I am where I need to be (even after and during all of this loopy business) are Mary Morrissey, and Kyle Cease.

Mary has a program called My Morning Mentor, I have been doing this daily for a several months.  I like that it is just a quick few minutes of my morning but that I get on a direction for my day right from the start.

Kyle Cease is someone that I have only very recently started following.  I actually picked up his program, The Limitation Game: Interactive (only 20 bucks) and am really starting to see the value in it.

I watched Kyle when he was a comedian because I’ve always said if I am going to spend time watching TV, it has to be something that makes me laugh.  When I see him putting this information out, I took a look, and it’s awesome.

So anyway, I guess my point is, I don’t have it all together.  I don’t have all the answers.  This blog is a reflection of that and a bit of journaling my thoughts and experiences out loud.

 

 

Talk soon,

Heather
