Justfurkids Carol lives on 45 acres in rural Tennessee with her husband and 6 German Shepherds... aka “the Kitchen Wolves”, all rescues & beloved house dogs. Actively pursuing healthier lifestyle changes including living KETO (Low Carb, Healthy Fat).


My Goals-
- Clean Eating: In other words, eat more REAL FOOD - whole, unprocessed, unrefined healthy food.
- I’m a MasterGardener so we grow what we can. Yep organic. (Some years are better than others.)
- Pay attention to ingredient labels, watching for additives & prioritizing whole foods over pre-packaged options.
- Fewer processed pre-packaged items means I consume fewer preservatives & additives I’d much rather avoid. I believe they disrupt the digestive system.
- Continue drinking 90 oz of water daily (including three 10 oz glasses with Lemon Juice or Apple Cider Vinegar & 2 teaspoons fiber).
- Continue educating myself and actively pursuing the KETO lifestyle....Paleo... Low Carb/High Fat
- ENJOY MORE EXERCISE and take the time to regularly log nutrition & work outs.(Yoga, Dog Walks, Total Gym, Farm Chores)
- Continue mindful breathing, eating, positive attitude:all so healthy!
- Continue 5 & 10 minute meditations every morning & evening with Simple Habit and Calm Apps

Fitness Minutes: 121,924

My Goals:
So far so good. Great in fact! How can it be this easy? (knocking on wood.)
I’m down 67.8 pounds in 9 months (since Jan 12. 2018). Hit a couple long plateaus and busted right on thru. It helps considerably if you expect that & remain dedicated to the journey toward better health.

I did hit my original goal and moved the goal posts! My goal now is 154 which will take me out of the "overweight" category according to the BMI charts. So that's another 20 lbs!
This year or next. I know I'll get there with all the encouragement and support from my Spark Friends! Y'all rock! Thank you!

My Program:
Keto Paleo LowCarb/High Fat
3+ walks with the 6 Kitchen Wolves daily
Farm is Work/Gardening is a Passion

Personal Information:

    Thank you for visiting my blog and accepting the three month water challenge! No, I don't have a post with any hashtags. Do you mean on the community feed? Because I don't really use that. I'm not sure what that means. Sorry! Maybe you can enlighten me. I could post the link everyday on your page if it will help you.

    If anyone wants to join the 3 month water challenge, here's the link:

    Thanks for the keto encouragement!!! I've been doing low fat for the last month and have lost weight, but I know I can't continue much longer because I'm often SO HUNGRY!!!

    Thank you for visiting my page! I enjoy gardening and we had a big garden years ago, but gave up because of all the deer, groundhogs, rabbits, voles, etc., that would eat everything, after all the hard work of planting, watering and weeding. We really need a fence if we ever decide to try it again (hubby says after he retires, but he doesn't have enough time right now). For now I make due by buying produce at local farmer's markets when things are in season. Enjoy the fruits of all your labor, and thanks for sharing the photos!
