New Year ... New Motivation?

My blogging motivation fell off the bandwagon and it took a while to hop back on.

A year flew by and voila, here I am again trying to connect all the dots.

For that short disconnect, I decided to pause on Keto. I went back to my Filipino cooking. Meals full of rice, bread, and carbs. I watched myself, mind you. My sugar rode the roller coaster of love. Loved me so much. My plantar fasciitis didn't return, but the weight did. Darn door lock didn't work. LOL. My left hip and knee started bugging me more than usual, but I alleviated it with more walking. The feeling of bloatedness came back, accompanied by heartburn and discomfort in sleeping. Energy level definitely sucked. Depression, on and off.

So, my personal experiment will end next week. Meaning, I'm restarting Keto and IF (intermittent fasting). At the moment, I'm currently planning meals. It's not that hard to plan them anymore since I have compiled a bunch of them. Meat and cheese. Meat and veggies. Full fat heavy cream. At least, I'm happy with my current kitchen.

Oh yeah, we moved to a single-family-home. I love the house, especially the spacious kitchen. Gas stove, gas oven, island counter. Food prepping galore! Honestly, as I write this, I'm excited to spend time cooking for myself. Of course, I also enjoy cooking for my beloved husband and family. It gives me delight to see them eating what I made. The refrigerator is always cleaned out.

Keto Flu is expected to happen again. It's going to rock.


  1. I need to get back there too. I've been slowly working on my new plan.

    1. I'm planning my whole month for now. I'm sure it will kickstart smoothly.

  2. I know I need to cut back too. I love my bread, pasta and sweets. And cheese. And melted cheese over potatoes or in bread or with pasta.

    1. I don't really use any bread when I make casseroles. It will be often on the table.
