Justfurkids Carol lives on 45 acres in rural Tennessee with her husband and 6 German Shepherds... aka “the Kitchen Wolves”, all rescues & beloved house dogs. Actively pursuing healthier lifestyle changes including living KETO (Low Carb, Healthy Fat).

——— I FOLLOW BACK ———

My Goals-
- Clean Eating: In other words, eat more REAL FOOD - whole, unprocessed, unrefined healthy food.
- I’m a MasterGardener so we grow what we can. Yep organic. (Some years are better than others.)
- Pay attention to ingredient labels, watching for additives & prioritizing whole foods over pre-packaged options.
- Fewer processed pre-packaged items means I consume fewer preservatives & additives I’d much rather avoid. I believe they disrupt the digestive system.
- Continue drinking 90 oz of water daily (including three 10 oz glasses with Lemon Juice or Apple Cider Vinegar & 2 teaspoons fiber).
- Continue educating myself and actively pursuing the KETO lifestyle....Paleo... Low Carb/High Fat
- ENJOY MORE EXERCISE and take the time to regularly log nutrition & work outs.(Yoga, Dog Walks, Total Gym, Farm Chores)
- Continue mindful breathing, eating, positive attitude:all so healthy!
- Continue 5 & 10 minute meditations every morning & evening with Simple Habit and Calm Apps

My Goals:
So far so good. Great in fact! How can it be this easy? (knocking on wood.)
I’m down 67.8 pounds in 9 months (since Jan 12. 2018). Hit a couple long plateaus and busted right on thru. It helps considerably if you expect that & remain dedicated to the journey toward better health.

I did hit my original goal and moved the goal posts! My goal now is 154 which will take me out of the "overweight" category according to the BMI charts. So that's another 20 lbs!
This year or next. I know I'll get there with all the encouragement and support from my Spark Friends! Y'all rock! Thank you!


My Program:
Keto Paleo LowCarb/High Fat
3+ walks with the 6 Kitchen Wolves daily
Farm is Work/Gardening is a Passion

    Thank you for the encouragement on my "Non-Food Rewards" blog. Yes, having a supportive spouse is awesome. I hope you will have a wonderful Wednesday.

    emoticon CELEBRATE HEART MONTH! emoticon

    February is heart awareness month with heart disease being the number one killer of Americans. Approximately 632,00 Americans die each year which means one out of every four disease related deaths in the US are attributed to heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, approximately 785,000 Americans have their first heart attack each year with an additional 470,000 experiencing a recurrent heart attack. That equals a staggering 1,255,000 Americans each year falling prey to a heart attack. According for the CDC approximately 4 out of every 10 people who have heart disease are also inactive. It is time to get moving!
