I feel like Thanksgiving is one of the only days of the year where you SHOULD NOT be dieting. So what we did was bought ALL the carbs we have been craving since June, and went nuts for two days (Thanksgiving and the day after.)
We had a carbsgiving!!!! It was AMAZING.... but afterwards we were in misery. I felt like something was rotting in my stomach. I guess all that sugar gave my body a shock.
Friday morning I ate a donut and immediately afterwards felt SO sick, like I was going to throw up and pass out. All that sugar first thing in the morning made my body go wack!
Anyways, on Thursday we had brunch and then in the evening we loaded up with more carbs and ended the evening having mommy and daddy date night at home and finished a bottle of wine and watched Netflix until midnight. The next day we celebrated with my parents and sister and continued stuffing our face with carbs.
It was fantastic! Happy (belated) Thanksgiving to all!
This is our 5th month Ketoversary, and I think I've lost quite a bit, but we forgot to weigh ourselves again this month! I don't know exactly how much we have lost, but I can tell I've lost some weight this past month because the pants that were a bit too tight on me a few weeks ago suddenly feel loose!!!! (HAPPY DANCE!!!!!) Hubby's pants are literally falling off, even with his belt on the tightest notch! I'm so excited about our clothes getting looser that I don't know what to do with myself.
Next month, for our 6 month Ketoversary I'll maybe put up some before and after pictures and give you a better idea of my weight and how much was lost.
Here are most all the foods we ate on our fifth month:
I also baked some treats! A Keto mug cake, Keto brownie cookies, Parmesan crisps, and Keto cheesecake pumpkin pie, which to me tasted ALMOST like a real (crustless) pumpkin pie.
Not that Halloween is relevant anymore, but in case your interested, here are some pics!
We went to a fall festival in our neighborhood and the kids fed animals, and were trying to put their entire hands into the animals mouths. Eeeeeeek!!!!! The germaphobe inside me freaked out a little, but they were having so much fun!!
On the night of Halloween they helped with carving the pumpkin and we gave them the task of scooping. All I heard for days was "I WANT TO SCOOP PUMPIN!!!!" And for days after I was finding whole pumpkin seeds in my dogs poo :D
We only went trick or treating to a few neighbors homes as Halloween was on a school night this year, but it was so much fun now that the boys are older. Caspian kept trying to go inside our neighbors homes LOL! I mean, that is what is noramlly done after ringing the doorbell, so he was totally confused as to why he couldn't go inside :)
We are off to Neverland!!!! Peter Pan, Captain Hook (or Captain Cook according to Valentino) Tinkerbell and John and Wendy Darling!!!!!
And we also have Tiger Lilly, The crocodile and the mermaid!!!
I have obsessive halloween disorder and I make everyone dress in themed costumes every year. My husband gets SO embarrassed but I tell him it's for the kids (just kidding, it's really just for my obsession).
My kids are obsessed with fire trucks and firemen, especially after having our hotel catch on fire on our vacation. They think it's the coolest thing!!!! They were SO EXCITED to go inside a fire engine, and they pretty much attacked all the firefighters pulling at their gear, buckling their belts and touching their hats. They are too funny.
We went to the boys's school fall festival and we also went to see some farm animals at Frying Pan Park. We went on a wagon ride pulled by horses and Caspian was just a tiny bit worried at first but then he loved it and kept non stop talking about it for the next few days.
Is there any season better than fall? I think not! I love everything fall- all things pumpkin spice, Halloween, costumes, trick or treaters, the changing leaves, jack o lanterns and PUMPKIN PIE!
Does anyone have a tried and true low carb crustless pumpkin pie recipe? I'm dying here. This year there will be no sweets for me and hubby :( But instead we are starting to fit into our old "skinny clothes" I'll take that any day over pie.
The past few weeks have been hard around here. Caspian caught a bug from school and graciously shared it with the rest of the family. That Caspian! At one point I had three kids with fevers all at the same time, and charts with different medicine schedules for the three of them. In the middle of all that sickness I got this big urge to declutter my life. Thanks to Konmari and Madame Chic (my favorites) I spent hours and hours cleaning, organizing and getting rid of clutter.
Now that everyone is better, we are in full FALL planning mode, with tons of fun events to attend. Every year for Halloween we choose a family theme for costumes. Last year the theme was Dr. Seuss and the year before it was The Wizard of Oz! This year it will be even more spectacular because now I have a daughter to dress up too! YAY!
So in the spirit of all things autumn I made this little sensory bin for the boys, who have a blast with it. I only give it to them separately though- as Caspian is going through a "MINE!" phase. He's so naughty.
Wishing you all a happy fall 🎃 🎃 🎃
