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.
