Lately I have this overwhelming desire to just let my guard down and share pretty much everything in my head. I always worry it’s too much and I make people sad. So if this is the case, I think you should stop reading right now.
I sort of lost my inspiration to blog for a while. There’s been so much change over the last two years that often I want to tell you something but by the time I get to the blog, it’s all come and gone and changed again. I know I’ve told you all of this before, but let’s start today with things I’m currently thinking of.
I want my husband to move into his own bedroom. Don’t get worked up, it is not a reflection of my marriage, it actually makes sense. If you watch my Instagram, you may have seen in my stories that husband and I switched sides of the bed. It’s a little funny I know, but our bedroom is visible directly from the front door. It’s not like he’s crazy messy but he’d put his backpack and work things down on the floor and it drove me crazy! So we switched sides to make his side the non-visible one. It’s been working out soo well. BUUUTTT now I want more! I want my own space, and I think he deserves his own space too. If I were being honest, this house is in large part a reflection of me, I think it would be nice if husband had a man space that was all his. Think of it like royalty in the olden days, where he would have his room and she would have hers, then he would just come to bed at night. Husband wants a desk and a big armoire in our room. The nicest thing I can say is I would not care for that, and I don’t know if he wants a sewing machine in his room. I’m pitching this idea pretty hard, I think I’ve just about got him sold, I’ll keep you posted on how this turns out.
Keto ~ I have been eating Keto-esk since sometime in August. I’m somewhere about the three-month keto mark. I say Keto-esk because I eat more fruits and vegetables than I technically should. I’ve been slowly changing over which ones I eat to stay closer to the low carb guidelines. I wasn’t quite sure about the diet at first but I am really starting to enjoy the Keto life. I’ve lost about 20 pounds. Can you even believe that? Oh my gosh. I feel so proud of myself when I say that. Twenty pounds. That weight was sitting on me so heavily. That is really an entire post on its own. Do you think we should talk about that? Would it help anyone? Anyhow, I have lost 20 pounds and I love it. I don’t mind the keto diet at all but let me explain a little. I don’t love meat. I eat meat but I don’t love it. A roast or a whole chicken breast gives me that mmmm bleck face. It’s fine but I couldn’t eat like that everyday. However if you give me spicy curry, I’m in love and will eat whatever you put in there. I add a lot of cauliflower, it’s a keto friendly vegetable, I put it right in the curry with the meat so it all tastes amazing. One of my staples. I actually don’t miss bread and I don’t miss sugar. I have sugar-free Russel Stover chocolates on hand if I want treats, or I make little mug cakes (Pinterest). Husband makes me Fathead Pizza at least once a week, no wheat, I think 4 ingredients and its soo good! I love keto coffee. It’s coffee with cream and/or coconut oil/MCT oil. I feel like basically it’s a cup of calories that gets my day going. That seems to be my biggest change with Keto, I think about food differently. It’s fuel. I think it used to be more about feelings. I do think we should talk about this more in another post. I could talk for hours, lol. If you have any recipes you love send them my way and I’ll add them to my favourite Keto Recipes list.
I cut my hair. After my surgery my hair fell out like crazy. It’s not sexy to talk about, but it’s truth. Every time I looked at my hair when it was down all I could see was how much was missing. I finally decided that it wasn’t bringing me happiness. I’m so happy I did.
Next thing…. I’ve started watching W network Hallmark Holiday movies. They’re wonderful. Completely. I was trying to explain to husband why they’re so wonderful and I think I got it. You know when a girl meets a guy and the guy is a complete jerk, but the girl falls for it anyway because she can see through it or she can’t help herself, or only she can save his cold little heart and turns him into Mr Wonderful? Well, that’s crap. I don’t want that. You can keep your asshole chauvinistic movies. I want hour upon hour joy of happy people, positive energy, decor inspiration, Christmas music. Wonderful, wonderful joy. I can’t be alone in this, can I? Who else is with me here?
So, what’s on your mind today….? This is just the beginning of things I think about, lol. I’d also like to tell you all about my neck and work and everything that’s happening in our lives! Have such a beautiful day.
