Well hey there, Mama!

If you are reading this in the spring of 2020, I bet you can relate to this:

I feel like there is this blur between all the days and it’s hard to know what day it is… just to be clear it is Sun-mon-nes-day.

So I’m trying my best to sit tall and breath deeply.  read more

Because going Keto means giving up somethings you really love.
