Keto Day 2

I didn’t get this written last night because I was too tired. We ran a ton of errands and I went with David and Dusty to look at some jobs. We chased down the original owner of the truck Dusty, my youngest child, and finally got it in his name. Hurray!

Back to the diet. We had a really good breakfast, who would ever think of baking an egg in an avocado. You should give it a try because it was great with a little cheese on top.

We dropped the groceries off. Yes, I am really getting things in house that we can eat. I also had to buy the briskets I am going to BBQ for the church picnic. I then made a protein shake to fill the empty whole in my stomach. It was wasn’t bad at all.

We had to go out to the valley, Wasilla to be exact, to look at a job. After leaving David says let’s go to one of the breweries out here. I am thinking, oh no our second day on our diet and we are already screwing up. Actually we hadn’t eaten that many carbs yet, so I thought we might be ok as I gulped down my beer with a guilty feeling.

We went to the Last Frontier Brewing company.  We had been there before and I had enjoyed it then too.  We had a very nice brew. We could tell it was where the locals hung out.   You can check them out here.

We got home and I fixed stuffed chicken thighs. They were stuffed with cream cheese, spinach and bacon. They were very tasty. We had a chopped salad I had bought at the store. All in all I didn’t think we did too bad.

Right now I am waiting at the doctor’s office to get my A1C results. I did loose a little weight already though. That makes me feel great about my new life change. A1C is down to 6.3. I have to come back in 3 months to see if I can drop down on Metformin or come off all together. He also said people have had good results on the Keto diet.

Keto Diet

I have decided that we really need to do something about our weight.  Actually, I don’t think David needs to lose as much as I do.  I would love to weigh what he does.  Also, our A1C has just stayed steady at 7.4 and it should be below 7.  We have been kind of sticking to the low carb diet but I just have been slipping a lot lately.  I would like to get it down where we don’t even need to take our pills for it.  I had mine down to 5.7 and got off all my pills.  Then when I had all my surgeries the last 2 years it went up again and now I am on twice as much.  David has been on the same amount for a long time.

Today is going to be the beginning of a new life style.  I have done a lot of research on different diets and decided this is the best for us.  I have bought the food we need, downloaded several cookbooks on kindle and have got the right mind-set.  Like they say at our church, “Change your thinking, change your life” that is what I am following now.

I will keep everyone posted on how the new life change is working for us.  I will post how I am feeling and how it is working for us.

Wish us luck and anyone out there that is on the diet that can give us any help I would appreciate it.
