Can it be October already?

Saturday, October 04, 2014

Here in Southern California we can't tell. Upper 90's and up to 105f, not the weather I was expecting. I look forward at at least upper 70's temps this time of year, even low 80's would be a relief.
On the plus side, I'm losing fluids, appetite is down & drinking more water to flush out those toxins & fats.
I finally put together a current before & after picture. I'm smaller, yes, but took it slow, concentrating on changing eating habits.

I eat low carb high fat now, it's ketogenic as I stated on on Sparkpage. Crepes made from eggs and almond meal are our favorite treat when filled with strawberries & cream. We have chickens so it's a good way to use the eggs. We survived the triple digit weather with iced coffee and yerba mate teas. Cooked meals in the crockpot and some on the stove. Salads with meat also helped keep us cool. We keep our electric bill down by not running the window air-conditioners at all during the day and for 1 hour at night, if needed, to fall asleep. I sit in front of fans to stay cool, and endure hot flashes with it. Here I am sitting in front of my fan, see my shiny face of perspiration from a hot flash, lol.

The house is all decorated for Fall & Halloween at least.

    You are such wonderful ladies on here! I really appreciate your comments! Guess what, took my daughter to the new "Wet Seal" store here in town and they had a 60% off clearance prices sale. My daughter was able to send text to the store for 10% more off. I bought a pair of black skinny jeans size 9 and a long stretchy slim skirt size large. I'm guessing a large is size 9-11 there. At women's store a large would be a 12-14. Oh well, I was just lucky their clothes fit me, lol. I'm looking forward to wearing my skinny jeans with big baggy sweaters this winter!

    Sorry you have so much hot weather, here in NY is it down to 55 degrees and is a little to cold for me. But what can you do? Hopefully, it will get cooler for you at night at least (so you can get much needed rest). Your pictures are great! You lost the weight nicely and still look healthy.

    Love your decorations! This year is moving very fast for sure. emoticon
