A good pep talk from The Wench in Cozumel renewed my enthusiasm for my keto diet that had gone slack during the pandemic. I started a Keto meal delivery plan (which is easy and yummy), resumed fasting 18 hours/day, and I am keeping up with everything I eat in my keto app, so I know my daily macros and calorie intake. I've been on it for less than a week and without much effort I seem to be losing about a pound a day with my 1300 calorie/day plan. For exercise, I am doing outside work while it is still cool, chopping brush, changing out the studded snow tires, splitting wood for next winter, etc. Thanks Kamala! It always helps me to follow your good example and advice.

Sorry I've been off the grid!  After getting back from a month in Cozumel, Home maintenance took over!  The last two weeks, I have been landscaping, digging trenches and putting in irrigation system.  Exhausted!  

 

I'm getting our activity updated through today for those who have been diligently posting their progress!!!  For anyone who hasn't updated us, it's never to late to add what you've been doing to help yourself physically and mentally!!!!  AND, it's NEVER too late to re-start the goals you've set!  Getting "Dive Ready" is a process.  Keep it up and hang in there!!!

Since April, I have had to stop my walking for about a week or longer, on at least 3 different occasions.  I have been out walking for at least 8 straight days now, so hopefully I will be able to keep it going.  I have done two three mile walks for three days in a row, after starting up again with a one mile walk last week.
