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: 112,324

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

    I'm actually really missing the package this week! I put my order on pause until I could get the late shipment snafu worked out. Didn't want to order another week if I would have to go through the same late situation again. That was NOT fun but Fresh Express was very responsive and the package I ordered for next week will arrive on Saturday and there will be no charge. I'll check my credit statment to be sure..ha..ha.

    I really like the experience. I HATE having to think about dinner after I get home from work and the grocery shopping is just one more thing I have to do on my ONE day off...ugh!

    Soooo to have 3 meals in the bag (literally in the bag...all sorted for you with every ingred.) is pretty sweet.

    What part of FL are you coming to? We are in SW FL on the West Coast. The weather right now is SO BEAUTIFUL...we might even go to the beach tonight to enjoy the sunset...it's REALLY that spectacular! I love the sunsets here...the BEST! emoticon

    i just felt so bad for the people this morning..they reminded everyone, since they lost 2 of their 4 this morning. Last year, a lady i know with 6 newfs. 3 girls 3 boys. lost the 3 girls. it wasnt till they did a necropsy that they found the mushrooms...she was beside herself. she couldnt find any in the yard...but finally they found them hidden under some other plants. right now we are nothing but snow here, but you can bet i;ll be out there the second i see ground...

    emoticon Thanks for stopping by my blog. So happy that my silly antics at the laundromat resonated with someone! emoticon

    Beautiful furbabies! If I lived alone, I'm afraid I would become a crazy dog lady but alas I'm limited to just one by the other half. emoticon

    Have a healthy week!
