The boys bonding while playing their video games as we end the night makes me happy :)
Shoutout to John of fatmaninalittlesuit
For being such an awesome source of support, inspiration and kindness in our community and for putting a massive grin on my face an my family’s face with his kind words today!!!
First time going out and about post surgery/no pain meds. A bit nervous- but at least I look cute?
Isaiha loves racing daddy with the slam balls we have! 25lbs for our little superhero and 50lbs for daddy!!
**we never ever EVER make Isaiha workout or anything of that nature. He simply sees mommy doing yoga and tries to mimic the poses. Or sees daddy lifting his weights and runs over to get his brightly colored toy plastics barbell and mimics daddy. To him it is all fun an games and we make sure to watch him carefully and make sure he doesn’t do anything thy could injure him.**
Here’s my aerial yoga hammock up in the tree at the farm! I’m so happy with this! So glad to be able to do my inversions every single day now! Yay! Honestly think it’s helping my back tremendously! I guess only time will tell, but it feels so much better when I do these vs. when I don’t.
It ended up being a bit high for me to get into off the ground, so that’s why that white step/box thing is there, so I can get into it.
I still haven’t really played around with it much more than doing assisted handstands, the hanging inversion, and upside-down crunches. I try to do 50 hanging crunches each time I’m on it, and I try to get upside-down 3 times a day. I can really feel it in my core and abs!
My only problems with it are: if I have the slightest congestion, it all goes into my sinuses and it tends to pull my shorts down. Always have to fix them when I get back on my feet. :-O
WHOOOOOO!!!! Val this is so great!! Man, missing using my hammock more and more!! This is so cool! You’re doing so great and I am SO glad to hear it feels like it’s helping!
I’d greatly appreciate if you reblogged this recipe and/or followed my blog; i want as many people to know about it and i love helping everybody with baking/keto/fitness!
- 1 cup granulated erythritol
- 1/8-1/4 teaspoon xanthan/guar gum
- 1/4 cup shortening (softened…
This is so groovy. I wonder how well it work with blending erythritol and Just Like Sugar (powdered chicory root) to keep the sweetness but minimize the cooling effect.
My son getting so excited about the Keto chocolate pancakes I am making him that he pulled a chair up beside mine and stood on it to watch makes me all sorts of happy.
Run Report - Kade Meyer 10K
Today was my first official 10k! :) It went pretty well. There were 3 runs going on at this location, a 1 mile fun run, a 5k and a 10k. I would estimate there were 300 runners, 70% 5k, 20%fun run and 10% 10k. It was cool to be in the active minority for a change!
The first 5K was fun and easy. It was in park and surrounding neighborhoods, I maintained a respectable pace and ran the whole way. I was pretty happy with the first 5k.
The second 5k was a beast. It moved from the park to a rural highway. It was a seemingly endless parade of hill after hill after hill again and again.
As I finally got to the final turn and started my run back to the finish, I realized I was probably the last runner on the course. This is a little humbling to say the least.
Then when I got about 8k in I started to cramp. This was not my longest run, or my hottest one, but it was my hilliest long run and my body started to protest. Unfortunately, this forced me to walk the last 2 hills.
I was nearing the park and feeling a little down that a PR was not going to happen today, when I saw some ladies running toward me. They had water and said they’d be honored to run in the last km with me if that was OK?
Naturally I said yes and we we ran in the last little bit, they explained that there were about 30 people waiting to see me cross including the race captains. They said I was inspiring to them. I nearly teared up right there.
We ran to the end and true to their word, there were 30-40 people cheering me on. Several came up to me and congratulated me. One group said they were trying to keep up with me on the 5k and they were impressed when they saw me pull off to the 10k so they had to stay and see me finish.
Long story short - I love the running community and these strangers sure made me feel welcome. I only hope to return the favor to other new runners in the future.
If you are reading this and wondering if you can do it too - the answer is yes - you can, and I can’t wait to cheer you on.
Oh, man, you’ve got me crying here, John! I’m so damn proud of you and so happy that those people saw the amazing man you are, and were there to encourage you and cheer you on. I know I speak for a lot of people here when I say I wish I could’ve been there too, cheering you on! We all were in spirit, I hope you know!
YOU DID IT! You made it! Celebrate! <3
Val said it perfectly- John, you’re a beast! :)
WOAH!! Almost let today’s happy post slip right on by me!!! D:
A clean kitchen makes me extremely happy and means I am 80% more likely to experiment with new recipes in the kitchen when I get to start out with it clean like this!! Sorry it’s so dark- didn’t want to turn the big light on.
Actually managed to clean the whole house today (sans bedrooms) and started laundry so I think I’m doing good but all that cleaning has put me in pretty dang bad pain. Hope sleep comes easier than last night.
