Keto Drinks, Celebratory cocktails

When you choose to follow a Keto diet and a healthier lifestyle then it stands to reason that alcoholic drinks go out the window too.  While drinking isn’t generally considered healthy if we are being realistic with one another, then it’s also a social component that many of us enjoy. Thankfully like cookies and cupcakes, there is a way to fit a couple of keto drinks into your new lifestyle from time to time without too much trouble! Drinking while on Keto isn’t overly complicated but there are a few things you should keep in mind! People who follow a low carb eating style oftenRead More →

Two people running in the woods

Starting a new hobby can be overwhelming. It’s easy to feel frustrated and unsure when you are faced with a lot of information about a subject your just starting to learn. Running is no different! Although running seems like a simple hobby to take part in, its very easy to fall down the rabbit hole of training plans, running gear and fitness studies with a few ‘how to get started running’ google searches. I know that I felt overwhelmed when I got started. I mean, did I really need to know my target aerobic heart rate right off the bat? How about learning what aRead More →

Keto Jello Cookies

There is something about holidays that just bring out my desire for cookies. It probably has something to do with a childhood spent baking with my mom. When my husband and I started following a Keto diet in order to lose some weight and start living a healthier lifestyle our cookie recipes needed a bit of a makeover. Thankfully these keto jello cookies are not only very simple to make but can be customized to fit practically any holiday or event! If there is one thing better then a great tasting cookie, it’s a great tasting cookie that can be altered to fit whatever myRead More →

Top 5 Reasons to start running in the New Year, trail running picture

With New Year’s approaching a lot of people are starting to consider changes to their lifestyles. While there’s no bad time to start living a healthy lifestyle or consider a healthier way of eating the tradition of creating New Year’s resolutions seems to create a general uptick in these changes. While my family and I started Keto and hiking/running before New Year’s last year, I did make continuing this lifestyle one of my resolutions. I’m pretty happy to say I have kept up with that goal and as a result, I have felt better about myself this past year than I ever have before. IfRead More →

Christmas Decorations set up following our Family Christmas Traditions

Family Christmas traditions are so interesting. I didn’t really think about it until I was married and had children of my own. Growing up my family celebrated Christmas, in the same way, every year, there were small traditions and larger ones but that’s just the way it was done! When I got married, however, it soon became apparent that my husband had grown up with different traditions and thoughts about the holidays. We had to learn how to blend our family traditions and once we had kids we found ourselves creating our own little way of doing things. When our children grow older and start theirRead More →

DIY Dollar Tree Christmas Globe

Now that it’s December I feel 100% justified in posting another Christmas craft! To be honest, if my budget would allow me too I would probably post a new Christmas craft every day this month. The Christmas spirit has hit me hard this year and my jaunts around the Dollar Tree have left me will so many ideas. The hardest part about making this Dollar Tree Christmas Globe was putting back all the other ideas I had collected in my cart (for now anyway!) This project is slightly more involving then our earlier Deer Diorama craft but not by much! But it doesn’t contain anyRead More →
