I’m still here…and Ready to Go for 2019

2019

Hello everyone!  I’m still here and still Keto!  🙂

The past few months have been insanely crazy around here.  Between our daughter’s activities, work, volunteering, and my gym time – there’s been no time to breathe it seems!

But I’m back and ready to go for 2019!

While I wasn’t strict Keto the past few months…I still managed to maintain!  Score one for me! But I’m back and ready to share my journey with each of you!

I’ve even added our very own Putting In The Work Instagram page for you to follow along!  (You’re more than welcome to continue following my personal Instagram page – sebock5 – if you’d like though!)  The new page will be devoted solely to my Keto journey!

Thank you to everyone who has checked in the past few months and are still around!  To those of you who are new (and maybe just starting the New Year with Keto) – WELCOME!

The Keto Journey is definitely worth it and while results are different for everyone – this journey has been worth it for me!

So Welcome 2019…big things in store for me!  🙂

Stay tuned!!

XO,

Deb

Ketoversary

It’s my One Year Anniversary on Keto! And what an amazing year it’s been!

Exactly one year ago today I started this journey and NEVER did I think a year later I’d be here where I am. 80 pounds gone.  Stepped on the scale this morning for the first time in ages and BOOM. There it was. -80

Whenever someone asks me what the most important thing is in the beginning – I always say “take before pictures”.  I tell everyone this because I didn’t.  I have very few full length photos of myself from the beginning and the few photos I do have are ones that I had to take 25 different takes to find one I even liked!

But there is one picture from a year ago that I have.  Our oldest daughter surprised me with tickets to see Guns ‘n Roses last year. August 13th, 2017 to be exact.  I was SO excited for this concert…a definite bucket list item!

I had been looking into keto for a few weeks and was contemplating starting soon. Then I took this picture with my beautiful daughter and “that moment” hit me.

Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Cordon Bleu

Tried a new recipe tonight!

Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Spotted this recipe on Facebook a few days ago and it looked so good and super simple to make!

I didn’t use the super fast shortcuts the creator did…I actually had some shredded chicken already on hand and just diced up some tavern ham instead of using the pre-packaged for both.  I also skipped the crushed pork rinds but think I’ll add them next time for a little crunch!

Into the oven
Into the Oven!

Really a great recipe! Super flavorful and the family loved it!

We’ll definitely make this again soon!!
