kari29's Journal, 13 August 2017

Had such a great family day yesterday! My husband organized a family outing that took us first to a nature preserve to walk the trails and just "be" in nature. What a refreshing journey!! Our little daughter (almost 2 yrs old) enjoyed looking at butterflies, listening for wildlife (Mommy, did you hear that?"), and watching the ducks swimming. After we had seen the preserve we decided to head to the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory since we were just 20 mins away. What a great time!! Now that the minion is a toddler, the animals and their behavior are becoming fascinating to her. Once we had had our fill of the zoo we packed it all up and headed back home. The little one was passed out in the car before we had even made it out of the area. Later that evening we tried to see part of the meteor shower, but Mother Nature had other ideas and gave us a bit too much cloud cover. We all stayed on track yesterday and weren't even tempted by all the food stands at the zoo. My husband had prepared food for the day's outing (cream cheese stuffed Jalapenos with a 1/2 slice of bacon on top). Even the minion devoured them! I LOVE how quickly my body remembers how to "keto". All that activity with walking and I didn't feel tired or limited in ANY way! I am encouraged by all the quick weight loss (even though I know a bunch of it was "water weight". I am also realistic enough to know the momentum of the first week will slow and normalize. I am committed to making this a lifestyle instead of just another "diet". I know my whole family can flourish eating this way. I do hope everyone has had a blessed weekend and has found something that can motivate them. Keep calm and Keto on!

Family days are wonderful! The best thing about keto is that I still think about food (addict)but I rarely have a craving anymore. I am able to enjoy the outing and not focus on eating. I love to go to Como in the middle of winter, and sit on a bench in warmth and the flora. It calms me.
