What is a Plateau?

No I don’t mean high flat ground. What I mean is a state of little or no change following a period of activity or progress. This is what Module 12 is about; troubleshooting.

First off what you should do is retake your measurements because sometimes we may lose inches and not pounds.  You could try on those pants that were just a little tight.

Share Your World

I am following Cee’s Photography and this is something she started.

Share Your World – August 27, 2018

It sounds fun so here I go to answer her questions.

  1. Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts? I love my nuts and seed.  I guess because I am a little nutty.
  2. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?  I like to keep my door open but when we have company I close it.  My son-in-law who is a HVAC man told me a long time ago that it is better to keep the doors open for the air conditioner.  Of course, now I only have a heater in Alaska but I figure it still would be the same.
  3. Are you usually late, early, or right on time? I have to say I am always early. My kids hated this when they were growing up.
  4. What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? I will have to say this is what made me smile this week.

    My two beautiful granddaughter who I get to babysit every Wednesday.

Those are the questions and answers for this week.  What are your answers? You can comment on my page or put it your blog and follow Cee’s instruction on her blog.

Have a great Monday!

Now We Are Getting Into It!

Module 7 of the Keto Masterclass Let’s Do This Thing!  In this one I needed to about my macros. Lots of good downloads this time.  Robb recommended getting Cronometer to keep track of what you eat until you can get to the point where you just know. He even helps you get set up which I really liked.

Robb suggested going here:

https://ketogains.com/ketogains-calculator/

to help you figure out what you need of protein, fat and carbs you need.  Also, other things too like calories.  You need to do this first to set up he Cronometer.

I learned what vegetables were higher in carbs, how many carbs were in different nuts, and there was an ultimate macro guide. It was a lot of interesting things. Learned more about fat.

Then there were the 9 rules of Keto

#1: Be meticulous with your macros

#2: Your carb count is king

#3: Eat all of your protein allotment—don’t skimp!

#4: Don’t fear fat

#5: Eat real food

#6: Get some shut eye

#7: Electrolytes

#8: Electrolytes

#9: Electrolytes Yes, electrolytes are THREE of the rules—that’s just how important electrolytes are to your keto success. Make sure to keep track of your electrolyte intake the same way you count and track your macros. Failure to adequately supplement electrolytes is the primary reason people don’t succeed on keto.

I did download the Cronometer. I can actually use it. I do like it to keep track of my food intake.

Next will be Module 8. I will let you know what I learn from it next time.

Have a great day!

Spending Time with Grandbabies

So we got home yesterday and today we watched our granddaughters for a few hours.  My daughter knew we would watch them so our Son in law could do some work because we had not seen them for 5 weeks.  David and I couldn’t get over the fact that they each have started to get fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff  t their own personality already.  Rebecca is going to be the thinker we think. Katharinelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

This is what happens when you try to blog after a few beers, a shot of whiskey and jet lag.  I kept falling asleep with my fingers on the key.  I gave up and figured I would start again this morning.

As I was saying Rebecca is going to be the thinker.  She is the smaller of the twins but doesn’t miss a thing.  She is always looking and moving.  David thinks her first words will be a sentence.

Katharine right now is the one that wants all the attention.  She has always been the better eater and you can tell because she is catching up to her age faster than her little sister.

They were born 7 weeks early but they were healthy.  They were never on oxygen.  Katharine weighed 3lb7oz and Rebecca weighed 3lb2oz.  They needed to learn how to suckle and weigh over 4lbs to get out of the hospital.  They both left together after a month.  Heather was only giving them breast milk but now she is having trouble keeping up, so they are having to get a little formula.

Heather just told me they went in for their 4 month check up and Katharine weighed 11lb2oz and Rebecca weighed 9lb7oz.

This is the girls when we left.

These are the photos that Heather sent me while we were gone to butter me up before she asked if I could watch the girls once a week when we got home.  They don’t seem to be able to get anything done.  Can’t imagine why.  Let’s see they are raising twins, Heather is the CEO of the largest manufacturer in Alaska and Dan in trying to run his real estate business.  So now Grandma and Grandpa are back and we can help out when needed.

These are the pictures that I took while we had them yesterday.  They really are good babies.  They fuss if they are hungry or fighting sleep.  They are girls and are afraid they are going to miss something if they are sleeping.  But to their surprise Grandma knew how to get them to sleep after raising 5 children and the 10 grandchildren before they were born.

 

If you can’t tell we are very proud of our little girls and will enjoy watching them grow up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Missed Our Flight

After church we stopped at Midnight Sun Brewery for lunch and our last pre-trip Juju, Panty Peeler Beer and orange juice,  so good.  We said bye to our two friends Judie and Kim, then headed home.  We change clothes and David sits on the couch.  I told him I was taking Dusty grocery shopping.  He is like fine I will probably be asleep when you get back.  Dusty and I get home from shopping and sure enough David is sleeping.  Dusty and I go do some things we had to do around the house.  I get my stuff done and just before I seat down David wakes.  He grabs is phone out of his pocket, then he says, “It’s 4:38”.  I reply, “yea why”.  He then says, “Our flight was for 3:20”.  To which I reply, “Yea, tomorrow”.  To his relief we didn’t miss the flight.

ONE DAY TO GO,  JUST OVER 22 HOURS!
