Day 128: Fat Bombs


http://www.amazon.com/Ketogenic-Diet-Delicious-Recipes-Quick-Cookbook-ebook/dp/B014G1YGUS/ref=sr_1_1_twi_kin_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1442261856&sr=8-1&keywords=fat+bomb+recipes



Today I made fat bombs.  I got the recipe from one of my Kindle books, called "Fat Bomb Recipes" by Sara Givens.  Today's fat bomb consists of little morsels of coconut butter, unsweetened coconut, cream cheese, with a chocolate cream cheese glaze, topped with walnuts. The idea is to keep your body in a state of ketosis, which is burning stored fat.  These little bites keep you feeling satisfied and less prone to binging on simple carbs. I am packing a couple with my lunch.

I am finding I need to make more time for exercise. I went to bed early last night with my book, but stayed up late, having a hard time putting it down. Hence, I kept hitting the snooze this morning.

I had a  nice breakfast - a leftover mushroom/spinach frittata, turkey bacon and tea.

Then I made my fat bombs and stir fried some cabbage and onions. My lunch today is sweet potatoes, spinach, shredded chicken, carrots, red peppers, cabbage and a fat bomb.  Yum! :)  I actually prefer my lunches to almost anything I can buy in a restaurant. The feeling of self sufficiency, accomplishment, and discipline far outweigh the instant gratification and gluttonous joy of restaurant eating.

So I am wearing my sneakers today and will get my walking in on my piano student route. Today I am all over the place. First North Portland, then the Hawthorne neighborhood, and then Woodstock area and home.

The kids all went hunting for the week. So it will be just Honey Dog and I. I'm ok with that. I like the quiet, but of course I will be praying like Mother Theresa that my kids all make it home safely! :)

Here are today's stats and then I must run out the door! (Good thing I'm wearing my running shoes!)
It looks like I stayed the same from last week. Really need to up the exercise!

Happy Monday!  :)

Year Four, Day 234: 2020: A Mandala and A Prayer

Today is January 3, 2020.  I began writing this post on New Year's Day, but got sidetracked.

Happy New Year! The year 2020 - it sounds most science fiction!
I am sitting at Arby's recovering from New Years Eve overnight with a 2 year-old  I will be going to the gym soon to work off this here beef n' cheddar.

Honestly, this New Year's Eve was probably the most enjoyable and memorable of my life.  We danced, we played "Nay" (Gracie's word for horse), we ordered McDonald's from Uber Eats.  I felt I needed a Diet Coke to make it through the evening. Grace got her first Happy Meal. She immediate took the bun off of her burger and peeled off the cheese before she ate it.  I ordered bottled water and apple slices for her so she didn't get too much junk in her system.

I was supposed to put her in bed at 9:30 p.m. But we were having so much fun!

And she told me "Zma, I'm not tired!"  I didn't want our special evening to dissolve in tears…

Year Four, Day 232: The Untethered Soul and My Awakening

I am on fire.  I woke up at 5:00 a.m. this morning. I felt sad. I felt irritated. I wanted to roll over and get some more sleep. But my eyes were wide open. Almost like they were being help open with invisible tooth picks. I was home alone - the rest of the family had spent the night with other family members.  Honey Dog would need to go out. And I could do my hooping and cleaning without disturbing the rest of the household.


(When my granddaughter is asleep we all tiptoe around, holding our breath, so cherished is her sleep time!)


So I popped up. I felt so much energy.  I didn't even need caffeine. I felt strong. Not stiff and groggy as usual.  Irritable, yes. But otherwise good!


So I cleaned the entire kitchen, made my bed vacuumed, hooped and even practiced some music on the piano I planned on playing for church later.


I still had time to spare, so I decided to sit down and get a dose of Thomas Merton. He has proven to be a soothing balm for me. Like trees.


I pulled YouTube up …

Year Four, Day 208: Happy Socks, Tales from Lyft and the Missing Music in My Life

I have completed one sock of my first pair of Happy Socks!  That's my name for them anyway.  They are slipper socks, knitted on a round loom.  Meant to be worn at home, when feeling cozy is of the utmost important. Hey, cozy is always high on my list! 

I dubbed them "Happy Socks" because I am making them colorful, and praying for the person who will be wearing them. I feel happy just looking at them!

I also completed the novel, The President Is Missing, by James Patterson and Bill Clinton.

I was thoroughly entertained by this book!  Granted, it was not extremely deep. And the writing, well it was not extremely, literary.  But it was great fun! I felt like I was inside of Bill Clinton's head.

After I read it, I looked at a few reviews online. And I was even more entertained! In fact, I was reading the reviews while riding the bus home the other night. I laughed so hard I snorted. I was getting odd looks from the other passengers! It was this one from "The New Yo…
