That is amazing that they sold their house and lived in a camper! I would love to do that, however we have too much stuff!! We joke about it alot but I told hubby we would need a storage unit for all the things I can't get rid of!

We have started the hunt for a new camper -- we really want a used one if possible, We have found the floor plan we like, just need to locate a good used model. With Covid, all the campers are sold out around us! It's CRAZY!

Congrats on your week going well for you. I am currently doing a 48 hour fast. I am 23 hours in and feel great!!!

Have a great week!!

My aunt and uncle visited many years ago and stayed with us... in our then 5th wheel camper with double pull-outs :) They LOVED it. So much so that since they were thinking of selling their house (in South Carolina) and looking for another, they sold their house and bought a big camper! Lived in it for years until they were ready for a house again. They are older, of course, and no kids living with them (they have 1 grown kid.)

I really miss camping, but I know it will happen again. I'm being patient.

My kids are all grown. I have a married 29 year old, a 26, 24, & 20 year old, too. :)

After a really piggy weekend, I'm having a great week. Even down a little. Monday I went back to keto OMAD. Although I have been drinking coffee with a little cream in the mornings. I'm trying to learn to like it black. :)

My son asked us over the weekend if we will always have a camper and hubby and I both said YES at the same time. We really love it. We camp from March to November with more in the spring and fall. We have a pool and like to stay home in the summer and enjoy that. Plus, if we do camp in the summer it has to be by the water and not always are we able to do that. Why go set out and roast in the heat??

I hope you do get another camper and are able to enjoy it. I have friends that just sold there house, bought a huge 5th wheel and took to the road. I can't imagine doing that right now, especially with an almost 10 year old. LOL!

How is your week going???

I"m so jealous!!

October is when we would go camping a lot, too, when our kids were not in school yet. It was my favorite time to go, everything was so beautiful!! Then when they started school we switched to Spring Break in March. Not as pretty but weather was still really nice and cool. We've not been camping in years since our camper died and our kids started working. We sold the old thing and now we are without one. I really miss it, but hubby has plans to get a new one when we can (probably after we retire) and just he and I go camping all over the place. I will be loving that! :)

Have an awesome time!!!

Yeah on removing the window units! Congrats on the new system, we are doing that in the spring. Ours is 30 years old!!

I recorded "The Secrets we Keep" but I haven't watched it yet.

We bought a bunch of pumpkins and gourds over the weekend while we were camping.
The orchard near where we were had wagons and wagons! I love this time of year!

Hope everyone has a great week!!

I have been trying to do WATP but work has been really busy for me right now. I have been doing arm exercises and trying to get my steps in with things around the house. I have thought about joining a gym but have what I need here at home to get things done. I just need to schedule time thru the day to GET AT IT.

It's my favorite time of year! I need to pull out my decor, too. Haven't yet. Perhaps this evening.

I use candles and essential oils and wax melty things and incense. A lot of incense. :) I love it.

Today is day 4. 23:1 is not as hard as I thought it would be! I switched to tea in the mornings and drink water after that. I'm at work all day so that probably helps. I eat my RBS when I get home and drink water and tea after that.

I put out my fall decorations yesterday. I love this time of year. Found some things I forgot I bought -- I love when I do that!!

I stopped using candles last year and have switched to essential oils. I found some new combinations on pinterest yesterday. Loving it!! Not sure hubby does but that is ok.

Hope you are all doing well!!

Sounds like you are well on your way!! I agree about FB, hubby and I share an account so we can keep up with family/school/sports/etc but I could get rid of it and be just fine.

I might need that broccoli cauliflower recipe! Sounds like that is up my alley!!

Let me know how your week goes!!

I normally stay away from FB. On there only so I can read our Sheriff's Office's posts. I'm glad I joined the group because it is informative.

Last night I made 4 salads with my ingredients and 3 heads of romaine. I could barely eat the whole thing last night. Since I calculated the calories (I still track) I wanted to finish it so I'd have enough calories, but I'm not doing that any more unless I'm THAT hungry. I was so stuffed! Not a good feeling. But I loved the salad. I did make my own dressing with mayo, yogurt, ACV, coconut oil and spices. I added the coconut oil for extra fat and because I think it tastes great and is a healthy fat. The dressing came out pretty darn good. :) It's really similar to a dressing I make for a broccoli cauliflower salad I make on holidays but with that one I use Red Wine Vinegar instead of ACV. Anyhow. 3 salads are sitting in the fridge ready to eat. I'll probably end up using bottled dressings, too. I love Ken's Steakhouse Creamy Caesar, I think it's 1 carb in 2 tablespoons so that's just 4 carbs in a half cup of dressing. Not bad. :)

Anyhow. I'm ready to drop some pounds!!

That is great news!!! I really love the FB group. There is so much support on there. If you search under the files, there is most of the information there. In the beginning, I made her dressings but I found that is was time consuming to do that. I checked the car count on my dressings I still had here and they were low so I stopped doing that. Her recipes call for 2 romaine hearts and then adding veggies, protein, etc. But hubby is doing it along with me and after about day 5 of salad he said can we have regular meals also? I also never ever finished a RBS and would end up throwing a good amount away. So I have modified the salad portion and now enjoy a small salad, with veggies/dip, keto deviled eggs and our protein.

I am pinching myself all the time this is working for me. Can't wait to hear about your success!!

I have spent lots of time reading on her website, I joined the ELAB facebook group and have been reading through the FAQ's and success stories and in progress stories. I started fasting yesterday at about 3PM. I will eat my RBS today between 5 & 6, when I get off work and can eat with hubby. I'm excited about this. I have given up, for the time being, my bulletproof coffee, my wine, and any eating at work. I've never given up my wine for anything before, but yours and others' successes have me convinced I can do this. What's more important to me, having wine every night, or having a trim bod?! duh!! This is right up my alley, I love huge salads with lots of goodies and nice full fat dressings :) I also watched a few of her videos and joined the 3 day challenge. She is a doctor, but of Political Science, lol, nothing to do with nutrition or diets. :)

I'd love to get her book, but it's pricey right now. It's a thin book and it's $29 plus shipping. Maybe I'll wait for the paperback :) but meanwhile I can google keto salad dressing and salad recipes.

I'm with the program! I've done Keto a lot, so this is just the next step.

GREAT!!

The basis of ELAB is to eat a really big salad. Like HUGE. 2 romaine hearts. Then you add veggies, cheese, proteins. She has recipes for salad dressings. The first few weeks I tried to eat the entire salad but failed. I have cut it back to 1 romaine heart and still add all the other ingredients. She has a book coming out as well. It is by far the easiest thing I have ever done. I love it, honestly. Sometimes we have breakfast for our meal. I love those days! I am trying to keep it between 1200 and 1500 calories and under 20 carbs.

I blogged all the details but I am doing intermittent fasting, eating in a 1 hour window during the day and fasting the other 23. It is the easiest thing I have ever done. No joking! The program is called Eat Like A Bear, developed by a Dr. I have never one IF before and had serious reservations but I jumped in with both feet and am loving the results!!

I will add you as co-leader today!!

Yea!!
