Day 2: Learning While Doing

It’s been an exciting day to say the least. I woke up at my regular 5 am and although I chose to stay in bed a little while, I didn’t feel the need to. Quite contrary to most mornings where I wake up and roll over to dose off once again. I didn’t drag myself out of bed either. I was up and energized. I went about my regular routine with ease and was out the door with my tea and a very packed lunch box! In it, I had breakfast and lunch.

In terms of meal prep, I am still winging it, so to speak. I don’t have a huge repertoire of Keto recipes so for now, I am following the rules and letting my imagination guide me. Breakfast consisted of sausage, boiled egg, broccoli, bell pepper and tomatoes with a Tzatziki sauce (yes I checked the sugar content).

I have to say that I expected to be very hungry by noon. Seeing as I ate my breakfast at 9 am. Noon came around and I didn’t even realize it. It was only at 2 pm that I finally forced myself to eat my Keto Shepherd’s Pie. I could only eat half of it. I figured if I didn’t eat something I would be eating my dinner way too late to do a 16 hour fast tonight. I had started intermittent fasting before the holidays and had enjoyed the health benefits that came along with it.

At dinner, I still wasn’t hungry. Again I ate only half of what I had planned to eat. One thing is for sure, I am certainly not starving on the Keto Diet. As a matter of fact, the few times that I did have cravings today were mostly from seeing food around the house. Like the chips on the table. Yes, I know… I should throw it all out. I am however choosing to ease my family into a Keto lifestyle. Besides I wouldn’t want three children going through glucose withdrawal at the same time. Yikes!

Back to the point! My cravings were not because I was hungry, but rather because the food is there and available. I simply tend to eat out of habit rather than out of necessity. Each time I felt like grabbing something to eat, I made it a point to ask myself if I was really hungry for it. The answer was always no.

Another big thing about today is that I am really diving into the learning process of what the Keto Diet and going Keto really entails. I’m digging a little deeper than the surface. I have equipped myself with 2 books on the topic and 2 recipe compilations that will help me out in the kitchen. I admit that I’m liking being in the kitchen and whipping up something good for me to eat. I have also enjoyed being creative with food. Dinner was Delish!

I’m looking forward to sharing the other beautiful things I cooked up today. I am officially at the meal prep phase where I am able to prepare meals for myself for the next day. Woohoo!

May Baydoun did all the “right” things and followed all the “right” steps. But she knew deep down that there was more to life than getting an education, getting married, having children... There had to be more than just the cards you are dealt. Watching her children play, she overheard her daughter saying “... just like mommy”. The sudden realization that her children, her daughters especially, would grow up to be just like mommy frightened her deeply. She was the role model of what a woman can be in this life and at that time, May wasn’t satisfied with who she was nor what she stood for. She was nothing more than her mother had shown her to be... A woman in her thirties, married with young children putting her dreams and ambitions on a permanent hold to raise a family. In that moment, she fully understood that she could not expect her children to become more or better than she was willing to be herself. It was a harsh reality check; and in that moment, she made the decision she would become the best version of herself she could be because she HAD to be the best possible role model for her children. That powerful decision, her awakening, meant that she could no longer accept the average life she had led up until that point. She set out on a wild journey of deep self-discovery. Not only of who she was, but who she wanted to be and how to become that woman who had that life. Along the way, she made the discovery of the law of attraction and suddenly her whole life made sense. The good luck... The bad luck... The past decade of her life. It all made sense. She had created it all. And if she could create it, then she could dis-create it and re-create something new. She began testing the theory and in no time was proven right. Fully trusting the Universe, she allowed herself to be led on the journey. She has had the beautiful blessing of learning from so many great thought leaders and piecing together the many pieces of life’s intriguing puzzle. Over a decade later, she has discovered her life purpose, and is living it fully. Now that the student has become a master, she teaches others the principles that have led to her radical life transformation and how they too can leverage (or hack) the Universe to get anything they want... without breaking any of the laws!
