Ketogenic Diet and life events

So... how did lent go on the ketogenic diet?  GREAT!

I lost 10 lbs in 40 days.  Then, it was Easter and CANDY!!!!  and WINE!!! (yes, I gave up wine, too)

Then... on the day after Easter, I fell during my morning run (during the walking portion of the Couch to 5K, I was on Week 2 Day 1) and broke one ankle and sprained the other pretty badly.  Crutches and a boot.
Yes, I fell and punctured my dorsal artery! 

Hubby got me home and put ice on!

Right side looked WAY worse than left

Deciding whether to go to ER

I was trying to figure out how to get myself back to work... and my sweet girl was trying to love on me...

So sad her mommy is hurting.

... two more days later, my sweet girl, Cheyenne, went downhill FAST and was suffering, so we had to do the unthinkable and put her to sleep.  it was horrible and I find myself just sitting down and doing the ugly cry when I notice it's 7:30 and I'm "supposed" to be giving her insulin shot, or it's 5pm and her dinner time... or just sitting watching TV and not have her come nuzzle me... or making dinner and notice there's no girl to step over...

She just couldn't hide her pain and suffering anymore...
Needless to say... gaining back 4 lbs was kinda understandable.

So, to end those two horrible weeks, I am going to join KetoDiet's 60 day challenge.

I succumbed and made measurements and took my weight, but have to take "before" pictures.  I've found that doing the photos and taking measurements make it all "REAL".

Will you join me?  I promise to be better at posting recipes I've found and updates, good research I've found, etc.  Promise!!!
