Our Thanksgiving 2017

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!

Fifth Month of Keto

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.

Halloween 2017 Festivities

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 :)
