goodbye turkey neck

Sorry to say. 
This is one of the limits
Of phone blogging. 
VLOGging is a mess. 

I have an appointment with the Genious Bar 
Next week. Fingers crossed. 

Hope the link works in the mean while !
Please enjoy. Let me know if it works! 

conservation mode

Vacation mode is upon us. 
I’m filling in for cases
Rather than training a new Nurse. 

Not complaining. 
Just some long days. 

The more I worked, the slacker I became. 
But that’s not how it works. 

The more I work, the more careful I must be. 

All in a days work. 

Grain face. 
The first pic is 16 June. 
The second one is today. 

Different light. Different filters. 
But you can tell a real difference. 

I blame grains. 
Grains are grasses at the end of the day.
And we are not designed for that. 
Ruminants are. But not us. 

This is an accountability pic for me.
The weight is about the same. 
I seldom deviate from my base. 
But I look sick! 
Like something is really wrong. 

Also makes me think I’m not so cute. 
Who would want to wake up next to that? 
No one. 
That’s why I’m alone. 
But I digress.
More to come! 

By the way. 
Kimberly- I miss you! 
Please call.

A little motivation here. 
I want to do some hiking 
On vacation. 
And meet up with my Phantom people. 

I have about 4000 steps a day now. 
Back on strict LC Keto. 
Meat Only, OMAD. 
That seems to work best. 

Without the moods of a high carb diet. 
And the hunger. 
And ulcers. Etc. 

Wish you were here!

DCI does a hi definition simulcast 
A few times a year. 
Scores are coming in pretty good this year. 
I liked the Crown. 
But every one else like the Blooooo!
Pete liked the Cavaliers. 

The mall has an ice rink

Moist Brisket from Rudy’s 
Every one liked it! 

Ribs, Jalapeño Sausage 
And Moist Brisket 

OMG what a fun night. 

I’ve been very sad lately 
And I cried all during 
The Drum Corp Show. 

Later, I got up in the night 
To see if my car was still there. 
It was. 
I’m sure this a normal reaction 
To the helpless feeling
Of being robbed. 

Eating carbs again has made me moody 
And tearful and 
I have fuzzy teeth. 
So out they go. 

Just in time for my vacation! 
Guess where to? 
Winner gets a box of Kleenex. 
Only slightly used. 😪

you will walk today

"Religions" h/t Rick Archer
(Stolen from Facebook)

I went to an Inter-Religion Integration Seminar.
The Bishop came, laid his hands on my hand and said, “By the will of Jesus Christ, you will walk today!”
I smiled and told him I was not paralysed.

The Rabbi came, laid his hands on my hand and said, “By the will of God Almighty, you will walk today!
I was less amused when I told him there was nothing wrong with me.

The Mullah came, took my hands and said, “Insha Allah, you will walk today!”
I snapped at him, “There’s nothing wrong with me”
The Hindu sadhu came and said "Beta, you will walk on your legs today."

I said "Babaji - nothing wrong with my legs"
The Buddhist Monk came, held my hands and said, “By the will of The Great Buddha, you will walk today!”
I rudely told him there was nothing wrong with me.

After the Seminar, I stepped outside and found my car had been stolen.
I believe in all religions now......

Well. She came back. 

No worse for wear. And new rims. 

Suspenders and a belt 

The face you make
 when you bite your lip. 
Like 3 times in a row.

one moar day

Traffic is bad at 5 am and 10 pm. 

These cars won’t eat the raw food. 
They act like they’re dying. 
The need an aCATamy award! 

So one more day. 
Maybe 2. Maybe. 

I’m fine with it. 
I have really low expectations. 
The bad guys who stole my car
Ran it out of gas. 
So now, the nice guys at Gerber Collison 
Put gas in it, and test drove it. 
They say it’s good to go! 

Carbs have so much water. 
And they use water. 
I miss them but it’s really better this way. 
Grasses are for ruminants.

a date with a car

Ahhhh the lovely skies of summer. 

It’s very nice to sit on the patio 
With my Ramadan lantern 
And eat. OMAD. 
When I get home. Best thing ever. 

I’m about 6 weeks out from vacation. 
Time to set the clock. 
And set the clock back. Lol. 
This was my BG first thing today. 
It needs to be down around 70
And I’ll know my glycogen stores are gone. 

Showing off my side view. 
My face exercises are paying off
No turkey neck. 😁

So Jake from State Farm called. 
He does sound hideous! 
He said Trekki is ready! 
The shop guy said there was no gas in it. 
So I asked how they could have 
POSSIBLY checked it out. 
And he was like 
So. We’ll see!

My morning read. 
NPO about 10 hours. 
Too high. 

I went to bed tired. 
And woke up tired. 
That rice and bread! 
Just because you can do something,
Doesn’t mean you always should.
