Just a Box

The best toy in the world? Yes- the famous box. Will and I have been bad parents- and not keeping most of the boxes that we have had.

This was by accidental  – we were rounding up the boxes to place in our recycle bin by the door. Then I walked by and saw Xander playing in it. So lucky to have captured the picture just in time!

What else does your kids play with that are naturally free around the house? Chairs? Cabinets? Why do we even need toys?


I cheated 

It’s not as bad as it sounds. Really it isn’t. We went Rafting over the weekend – my very first time, and I got a little too excited with the carbs.

I’ll spit it out. I had some beer. Not my vacation beer: Blue Moon. I had what my friends call my bitch beer: Michelob Ultra. Now, defending my favorite beer, it has 95 calories and 2.5 grams of carbs PER drink. Which all can think it’s fine- but alcohol is alcohol- and it slows down any weight loss process.

How I feel like everyone is looking at me when I confess my sins….

Sunflower seeds.  This is the mistake I made the very first time I decided to do keto. I ate burgers and cheese and ate a WHOLE lotta sunflower seeds. Those carbs ADD up. Well, I had a lot of sunflower seeds for this trip.

All this- resulted in kicking me way out of keto. I felt like I was kicked out of the cool group at the high school lunch table. I am ashamed.

So I’ve expressed my sins and now it’s time to forgive myself and keep moving. Easier said than done. It will be hard not to blame myself for not losing enough weight bc of this fallback.

That’s what I have my friends here for, or am I just talking to no one out there? Either way, it’s helping a whole lot. Thanks for following me- and supporting.
