CRUISE PREP & HOMEMADE MAYO

Hey hey!  It is about that time!  Getting ready to sail on the Magic.


Suitcases are out and half packed!


Made a trip to Galveston just for fun.  The weather was great.  Got a little sunshine Vitamin D.


So about the diet and ketones.  I am still loving Low Carb/High Fat.  I do not measure my blood ketones every day, just a couple of times a week.  I fluctuate between 0.6 and 1.5 on the meter.

I had gained a few pounds over the last several weeks, but have now dropped those pounds.  It is very true that the closer you get to your goal the easier it is to maintain it.  Easier, but still a slippery slope if not dealt with promptly.

 So I am still looking at the elusive "last 10", HOWEVER I have prepped all of my meals for the next two weeks and have added the walk of torture - the treadmill.  AND just as I feared, one day I was distracted and stepped wrong and yes ... did the quick step dance, allbeit not quite as graceful as this couple.  But I was able to recover before I received a treadmill rash. hahahaha

THEN I did this:

AND came up with this:


However it took me 3 different tries with other recipes.  Thanks to my friend JoAnn Paxson for sending me this link!  It was so quick and easy.  I used a combination of olive oil and mct oil.  The flavor is amazing and it does not contain all of the bad stuff that regular shelf mayo has in it, especially soy!

Life is very good and I can hardly wait to see all of my dear low carb friends!
