Our First Walk

Sunday was our official move in. The muscle that Heather hired showed up at 1 to unload the trailer. I know Dan and David were glad they didn’t have to do it all. The first thing I did was get our bed set up. It sure was nice to sleep in our own bed. Of course, we didn’t bring the box spring because it is old. We have a new one coming on Thursday.

The best thing that happened was that Jim and Linda made it on Sunday afternoon. It was nice to have the gang back together. It was sooner than Heather, David and I thought. We thought the earliest was going to be Monday.

Heather and I went to Aldi’s to by a few groceries for the house. Heather made bean and cheese burrito’s for dinner. I still am not eating much because of the withdraws.

Monday we all went shopping in IKEA which is in Baltimore. The kids bought some of the furniture they needed there. We had all sold a lot of our stuff to save on weight in the trailer. I guess we didn’t leave enough behind since half of our stuff is still in Edmonton, Canada

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.
