So glad you’re having good weather!Thankful for this week at the beach with friends and family. Thankful my baby nephew took a nap on me at the beach today. Love moments like that! Thankful the weather has been nice at the beach since it’s been raining a lot back home!
Welcome!I'm thankful to have stumbled into finding this group/forum on here as well as some of the training journals over on the RunDisney forum. Reading back on old threads on here as well as training journals people have posted have helped me these last couple days when knee and ankle pain is keeping me from sticking to my training schedule.
Oh, I love historical novels... I just ordered Life After Life. Thanks for the recommendation!I thought I would recommend one of my favorite authors-Kate Atkinson.
She writes a wonderful series that is a perfect combination of literary fiction and crime novel featuring Jackson Brodie, a private detective. There are five of them, so start with the first, Case Histories.
She has also written three WWII novels-Life After Life, A God in Ruins and Transcription. In these books she jumps between different periods-they are wonderful novels about making choices, failing to make them and living the lives those choices determine for us.
I've had aura's with my migraines most of my life. They get really terrible during pregnancy and have changed and developed a lot over time.I have also stalled in the weight loss department the last few months. Similarly I am also approaching Keto as a longer term eating style to help me heal years of neglect and unhealthy eating which saw me pre-diabetic and with high cholesterol - I also have started having auras sometimes followed by the migraine headache and just plain fatigued all the time! I had made some improvement on my blood results - but they are still up there - I need to have them re-done and I am procrastinating as I know my eating has slipped lately and I am scared I undid the improvements. Doctor wants to put me on medication for the high cholesterol.
I really enjoyed Yesterday, saw it a couple weekends ago.DD and I took mum to see Yesterday at the movies today - we really enjoyed it. Mum would not leave until the credits were over and she had finished singing along to 'Hey Jude' lol.
100lbs! You should be so proud of yourself!I've had aura's with my migraines most of my life. They get really terrible during pregnancy and have changed and developed a lot over time.
I have thankfully never had an issue with my blood sugars, I have been through some pretty serious treatments that ravaged my body and left it much worse for wear.

I have not had a good week. My mother has fallen back on a commitment she made to me which has a huge impact on the next few years and it is really frustrating for me. I've been a bit depressed with the whole situation.
On a good note I have stuck to healthy eating, my weight is continuing to go down and my numbers are really good. Today my ketones were at a 4.0 and my sugar was 3.8. I am so close to having lost 100lbs since starting keto back in September. I'm not sure if I can hit goal weight by my one year mark but I'm going to try as much as I can.
My youngest turns one tomorrow so we are going to do a cake smash for him which I'm excited to see. His brother did one and didn't know what to do with the cake for a bit, was so cute. He quickly had the cake into a big mess once he figured it out.
I have all ingredients, I will make it for one of my lunches this week!A touch of lime and a little cilantro makes this black bean, avocado, cucumber and tomato salad a perfect companion for grilled chicken or steak.www.skinnytaste.com
With the hot weather, I thought I would share a recipe I tried this week.
We really liked it-I am adding leftover chicken and corn cut from the cob to make it a main dish.
Happy weekend, everyone!
