Do you ever feel like you have hard decisions to make and just do not know which way to go?

I’ve recently been really contemplating if Molly was the right choice for my family.  I hate to even say that out loud, but I often wonder if she would be happier with another family…

It just feels to me like I never have enough time at the end of the day to devote to her.  That said, she is always right beside me, so close that I trip over her.

What do you do when you’re faced with a difficult decision to make?  Have you ever felt like you’re not giving enough to your furbaby?

I am all about being completely honest with you.

When I get rushed, or stressed, or busy and exhausted with work, or with sick kids, or with my mom (or whatever fill in the blank with anything!) it is so very easy for me to stop spending time with the kids that I feel is necessary for both me and my kids.

Especially when I am feeling overstressed and overwhelmed.  I go through the dailies, to make sure they are fed and watered so to speak, then I get them dressed and get them out the door to daycare and school. [continue reading…]

My Keto Struggle and WHY I want to try these FBOMBS


I have really been struggling with putting myself first in order to eat properly and maintain my weight loss and healthy ketogenic lifestyle.

There are two main reason that I struggle, a reoccurring theme of sorts:

  1.  I am an Emotional/Stress eater.  When things get really intensely busy for me, or when I get stressed out about something beyond my control,  I always tend to go back to my old comfort foods and way of eating.  It’s almost like I am feeding the wounded little girl that I use to be.
  2. I am a BUSY MOM and Business Owner.  Saying that there are not enough hours in the day is a complete understatement.  When I am really stressed for time, I will often just eat what my kids are eating and completely mess up being in ketosis.  Then I have to start all over again.

Instead of dwelling on my problems and continuing to feel like I am failing, I want to put some solutions in place so that it is easier to stay on track even when I am busy or stressed out. [continue reading…]

My Keto Journey


I adopted a Keto way of eating back on August 3, 2015.  For the first 14 months and while I lost the majority of my weight, I did not stray from eating low carb even once because I knew that if I did, it would be hard to get back on it.

During that time I managed to lose 155 pounds and I felt better than I have in years, since I was a teenager in fact.

Since then I have tried to stick with a low carb/ Keto lifestyle, but I am finding it harder especially when I go through super stressful times such as I did recently with my mother being ill and having surgery, or other times when there is an upset with my children.  I have gained back some of the weight (the gain fluctuates between 30 and 40 pounds).

Do You Feel Overwhelmed with Life?  I Do…

Some days (probably too many days) I do let that feeling of overwhelmed in life get the best of me.

Life is going on all around me, and most days I feel like I do not have enough hours to accomplish what I need to get done off my list.

It feels like I just get through one thing, and then here comes the next…
