Morning everyone from a very chilly patio today! I was a late riser having had my sleep be broken a few times last night and I’m very slow to get moving this morning. (darn dogs, darn husband) 😉 That being said, it’s time to move on.
I don’t know if I told you guys or not, but I finally started journaling last week. I don’t mean on the computer-like this blog, I mean literally free writing for 10-15 minutes every morning to put my thoughts (however random) down on paper, clear my head, and just make an already good habit of writing something every day even better! It may read like gibberish to anyone else, but that is what all the “experts” on the subject of writing say to do, and I’m here to tell you, it works!
I think I have a bit of good news to report, after a week on the new Keto diet, my test strips showed Friday that I was indeed in ketosis. Now, I’ve heard that this may or may not be the best indication, but if you need another, my breath seems to be changing as well. (one of the more unpleasant side effects) I got on the scale and I weighed 110lbs! Ok, I may have weighed wrong last Monday, or my eyes did not read the scale correctly, there is no darn way I lost 5 lbs in one week. That’s what it said though.
Ok, the whole name-change thing. I’ve been toying around with the idea of renaming the blog something more solid so everyone knows what I’m about in case I ever want to get serious about this blogging thing. 😉 I was thinking something like Kimmy’s Keto Patio…unless yall have a better idea. Any suggestions are welcome, I will continue discussing anything relevant to alternative health ie; Paleo lifestyle, Keto dieting, recipes for both, essential oils, CBD and its benefits, in addition to PKD, book reviews, music, writing, or anything else that you all want to know about/hear.
We had a nice weekend and got to meet and spend time with my middle son, Joshua’s new girlfriend Chastity. I also got my baby fix while waiting at their apartment for her mother to come pick up her boys-she has a 9-month-old and a nine-year-old! I was trying to help them get organized and packed and he was crying, so I went into the bedroom and played with him, held him, and generally tried to keep him entertained while they did their thing. He is a sweet baby, but what a chunk! I wish I would have taken his picture (I wasn’t thinking) he and his brother are both handsome. His brother is Hayden and he is Westin (Westyn?) not sure how she spells it. I did get a picture of the two of them though.
We also spent time with my Dad and Sean, but never got her (Chastity) over to Claudette’s to be introduced. That’s alright, there will be another opportunity I’m sure. Chris came over for a short visit on Saturday and then we took them home yesterday. Over the weekend Dave and I helped him work up a resume. Will you all join me in praying his application for a new job is accepted and he gets work?! I need all the prayers I can get on this one people. He needs a job badly in this particular situation. Thanks in advance! 🙂
Well, I could talk to you guys all day but I have lots to do, I haven’t done my exercises yet, I got a small gig I need to get going on and the house isn’t going to clean itself. Cooking to do, food prep, oh, and I’m going to talk to TCJC about a couple of writing classes. And if that’s not enough, I need to go to Kohls and JoAnn’s today (maybe that will do for my walking) so I better get busy. (I need new yarn and I have a coupon burning a hole in my pocket 🙂 )
One more thing…I got a temporary 2-day job delivering flowers for Brice’s florists for Valentine’s! That will bring in some much-needed, good money (although it will be a long 2 days) and the days I’ll be working are the 13th and 14th of Feb.
The doctor told me on Friday I was good to go, could do anything I felt up to and he would see me in 3 months! Before that visit, I will have x-rays taken to see how well everything is healing up in there, he also wants me to back off my Gabapentin and see if my neck pain is really gone yet. Unfortunately, the numbness in my fingers and my right heel is still there and he said that may take up to a year to resolve! Ugh! Plus, I still get tired really easy when I do a lot, I need to build up my tolerance before that week of the job!
Yall have a wonderful day and I will see you later on the patio!
