How is Keto Going?

How is Keto Going?

I've been following a Ketogenic diet (30g of carbs or less) for 4 weeks now and some of you have asked how I'm getting on and if I plan to stick with this long-term . . .

Well, it's a resounding . . . YES!

Keto is easy, quick and delicious. It looks really naughty on a plate (mostly), which I LOVE - and let's face it, my dearest Keto, you had me at Bacon.

Teething Problems

Teething Problems

We collected Jango on Friday morning and he's fast become our beautiful little nightmare. He's so loving, kind-natured and choc-full of beans. This little man follows us everywhere and is always so happy. He's a dream come true.

Bracelets and Blood Sugar Babble

Bracelets and Blood Sugar Babble

I received my new medical bracelet! My new bracelet came from the same company who sent me my favourite, trusty, old faithful—shown below. Slightly bashed, but I've been sporting this one for a long time now.

What I love best about these is people know exactly what they are off the bat. Which is a major plus in my books.

This is not your fragile, flimsy, "I'm not quite sure what I am" piece of jewellery . Nope. This is a . . .
