I realized last night that I’ve been doing Lazy Keto and got a little disappointed. I’ve been doing well with restricting carbs, but now it’s time to beef up the fat! Also I have been making Almond Joy fat bombs and loving them...but last night I realized I’ve been using SWEETENED coconut flakes! So many carbs I haven’t counted for almost 3 weeks. Sigh, oh well. I made a big batch and cut them in smaller pieces.

Thanks for this. My SO and I were originally so excited to start a family, but after our marriage 1.5 years ago, it just changed. Neither of us want kids now, but there’s so much pressure from family and society in general. My boss with 2 young kids just told me yesterday “don’t do it. I love my kids, but don’t do it.” And the reassurance makes me feel less guilt. I can’t stand the obviously exhausted, angry parents in our friend group who constantly complain about every aspect of parenting, but flip the switch and tell us we’re making a mistake by not having kids.

Almost the same boat, but I do want them eventually. I thought I'd be ready a year after marriage, but here we are and I'm really happy with how things are. We are both getting healthy and fit, saving money, and working hard to climb up the ladder in our careers. I don't feel anything missing right now.

I was going to mention IF also. It has helped me to stick to 1200 calories a day without feeling deprived. Check out r/intermittentfasting

Same here. I started last week and I've lost 6 pounds, with some walking each day. And I feel better and in control.

Recipe

I made this from a combination of this chocolate and the coconut base of this treat.

Ingredients

Coconut Base

  • 4 cups of shredded coconut
  • ½ cup of butter
  • 1 cup of coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp of powdered erythritol
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Almond Topping

  • 1 cup of cacao powder
  • 1 cup of coconut oil
  • ⅔ cup of powdered erythritol
  • 2 cups of almonds

Instructions

Chocolate

  1. Measure coconut oil. If oil is hard, I press it down as I add it to the measuring cup. That way by the time the cup is full there are no air pockets. (Go on, use your hand if you have to!)
  2. In a double boiler or in a bowl (glass or stainless steel) over a pan of water, melt coconut oil over medium low heat. Do not let bottom of bowl touch the water in the pan.
  3. While oil is melting, measure out cocoa and sweetener.
  4. In a bowl, combine the two and mix well.
  5. Once oil is melted, remove from heat and add sweetener/cocoa mix. Stir well until thoroughly combined.

Coconut Base + Putting it together

  1. Melt the coconut oil and butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut flakes and melted butter and coconut oil.
  3. Add 1 tsp of vanilla and mix it until it’s fully combined.
  4. Sprinkle the mixture with the powdered Swerve sweetener and mix it again.
  5. Layer a piece of parchment paper in the bottom of a square pan.
  6. Pour the coconut mixture into the bottom of the pan and put it in the freezer for about 5 7. minutes so it will set.
  7. Remove the coconut mixture from the freezer and spread the almonds evenly on the top of the coconut base
  8. Pour the melted chocolate on top of the coconut spreading it evenly.
  9. Place the mixture back in the freezer for about 10 to 20 minutes until it has completely set.
  10. Remove the parchment paper from the pan and place it on a flat surface.
  11. Use a sharp knife to cut the squares.

If you want to step it up start weighting that shit and tracking your macros.

readytopartyy 3 points

I just started IF last week, and now my husband and I are going to try keto as well. I went shopping today and was so happy with what I could do with the food I can still eat. My only hang-up is I love baking...so I'm going to have to figure that out. I'll be on the lookout for low carb recipes. I love making bread too and it's a good outlet for me. I guess I can just make it for others.

Edit: sorry the point of replying to your comment was that I am learning so much about the types of food that I should be eating, and didn't even realize the importance of tracking them macros. I use MyFitnessPal and that's been helping me.

I’m not the biggest fan of primer either but I have such textured skin due to eczema that I look like a birthday cake without it. That’s freaking awesome you don’t have to use it because I have yet to find one that I like the feel of. A lot of the time primers feel slimy to me and it’s kinda gross until it dries completely.

I love Two Faced Hangover Rx Primer. I started it when I was on accutane a couple years ago and stuck with it. It's not sticky and feels and smells good.

Sparkling water. Also, make sure you’re electrolyte levels are good. If I’m low on sodium the day before, I start to get super hungry and sluggish much earlier in the day.

What do you do to get some electrolytes?

Also, consider trying intermittent fasting. Obviously, you can't start eating out of control, but if you have an especially large meal you can help balance things by not eating for the next 16 hours.

readytopartyy 1 point

What does intermittent fasting consist of? I get migraines and not eating is a trigger so I'm so worried about being hungry...

4alark 3 points

This is only one way to do it, and an oversimplification, but usually you fast for sixteen hours, then do all your eating in an eight hour period, then fast again. I don't do it every day, maybe two or three days a week? It may not be for you if you get headaches. I don't have any repercussions from not eating for long periods. I recommend reading more about it, there may be a version that works better for you. I have my last meal around eight, and then don't eat again until after noon.

So I owe you a lot because I'm trying IF and I love it!! It's been helpful already. Thank you!

I just started fasting yesterday, I think I'm going to do 16:8 for now. The hardest part is keeping myself committed to not eating before the fast and, but it's really good for me to set boundaries, because I've had some issues with binging. But it's very good and rewarding to be able to eat after that time, I feel very proud of myself. It's also going to be nice to get some self-control. I'm doing it to lose weight. Some of the bigger changes have been drinking coffee and tea black, which is isn't actually all that bad. I got a coffee grinder and I'm going to be using better coffee to help with the taste. I realized how many calories I was throwing away each morning with unnecessary sugar and fat. I'm excited for this journey and I hope I stick with it! I have a friend who's been doing it for a while, so we are going to try to be each other's accountability buddies. I've also been eating more snack food throughout the day before dinner, instead of a big lunch. I realize I would scarfed down lunch and feel hungry after, but I already ate all my calories for that meal. This way I get to enjoy a lot of different foods and still stay within my calorie budget.

You get even more if its an international flight. I used to work at airlines and I had to deny boarding to a guy flying to Europe and he ended up getting more money than he paid for his ticket. Plus we had to give him food and lodging for the night.

Last year on our honeymoon, they booked the flight too close to when customs closes (there were some delays before that and they tried getting us on the plane asap buy didn't make it) so they delayed it to the next morning (we were in Mexico flying back to US). Does that count?

Silicon mats really are nice, but parchment paper will do fine.

If you bake a lot, I'd definitely recommend a silicon mat.

I have a silicone mat that I used once in a macaron kit that I got, which turned out to be a disaster... Can I use that for regular baking?

My gyno said the same but she also added not to use dryer sheets for towels and underwear. And said I should use olive oil for lube. I use coconut but it's the same jist. Seriously life changing. I haven't had a yeast infection in over 10 years.

Edit: Just to clear this up a little bit. My gyno at the time recommended to me to stop using the dryer sheets because I was getting a lot of irritation and yeast infections pretty regularly. This is not to say that every woman needs to stop using dryer sheets. If you haven't had a problem so far, wonderful, I am sure you will continue to have success using those items. Dryer sheets aren't really necessary for those items anyway so in my world it wasn't a huge loss not using them. The purpose of a dryer sheet is to eliminate static electricity and soften your clothing. So really it is leaving a chemical layer on your clothing to keep static electricity from building. I have never been shocked by my underwear by not using them. No dryer sheets, cotton only underwear, coconut oil for lube and dove sensitive bar soap (I can't bring myself to only use the water) and a separate drying towel (1 for body, 1 for nether region) have been my regimen and it hasn't failed me yet. Sorry if I caused anyone to panic.

My husband is the best at this with me. Especially when I say something funny. I tend not to have confidence in my jokes all the time, and when he hears me he will repeat the joke and said oh did you hear what she said? I love him.

My company, as part of its alcohol policy, said you should not drink for at least four hours before coming to work. When engineers got called about production problems over the weekend, they all "just had a beer" but could be there in about four or five hours.

readytopartyy 1 point

My alcohol backfire story is that during my sophomore year, two girls brought vodka backstage during a drama production and said it was water and gave it to unsuspecting actors. After that, we made a "contract" that said no alcohol on school premises, but thought that made it sound like we were condoning drinking off campus. So, we made it a no alcohol at all rule and if you drank you would get kicked out of the play or club. Fast forward to my senior year, I went to a party and has a drink. I told someone, they told the teacher, I got kicked out. I was Thespian president and had my first solo in play. I was devastated. But I helped create the rule. So, fuck me.

I am absolutely baffled how people pay so much money to look so hideous. The prints are BEYOND awful, it’s almost intentional like you said!

I feel really bad, the other day a coworker asked me if the dress I was wearing was a lularoe, and I was like oh God no. Then I forgot that she sells it... Oops.

lacklust3r 10 points

Why feel bad? If the prints aren’t for you they aren’t your style and that’s okay. For all we know you could’ve meant you can’t afford it lol. (Jk) but if she asks say that.

readytopartyy 11 points

It's funny because it was a plain purple dress! I guess she just thought it was the style? She gave a girl's name, asking is that a ___ dress?

People don't want to admit that the writers were already going off the rails at the end of season 1. I know we all like the show but let's face it it's not that great especially the character depth. Not to mention the history of them. Half of the time it seems like the writers are making stuff up on the fly this seems to be another case of the actors being too good for the show.

Cheryls sexuality isn't the problem. Its the lazy writing.

readytopartyy 27 points

Reminds me of what happened with Pretty Little Liars. The first season was really great, the mystery was there and the story was written pretty well. But once you solve that main mystery, it's hard to replicate and carry the story on with the same feel. You want the characters to grow, but they make them mature and change too much. I liked the first season of Riverdale because, compared to the series of PLL, it actually answered questions and the characters weren't as stupid. But, I had to stop watching after the first couple of episodes of the second season because it just seemed too far-fetched and the characters were not acting in their own character. I definitely think the fan service really messes with the show. Part of rooting for characters is that it's either a really slow build-up to happen, or it doesn't happen. That's why it is a fantasy story

There's the inside. I did the King Arthur recipe. I learned a lot doing this, it was good practice. I didn't divide the mousse filling correctly, the cakes could have baked longer, I didn't attempt to slice the mounds, etc. But it was just for fun and yums.
