Day 16: Making My Choices for Me

As the days go on, I am realizing that Keto, much like life itself, is about making choices that bring you closer to where you want to be. I want to be healthy, vibrant, energetic, and full of life. These key points as well as many other aspects are what prompted me to dive into the Keto lifestyle. These same goals and desires are what are keeping me going even when the tortellini I am making the kids is smelling so yummy.

Essentially, my desire for my health outweighs the desire for instant gratification and giving in to the temptation of something sweet or the wonderful aroma of carb rich meals. I’m not really ready to go entirely without the things I love. I’m thinking chocolate here. So I find alternatives that work for me. Things that are low carb and still satisfy me. For instance 90% cocoa chocolate. (Believe it or not, I have had to hide my chocolate because my daughter ate the whole bar I bought last time).

Keto friendly isn’t bland, or bad tasting, or boring. As a matter of fact, it’s some of the yummiest food I’ve had. The challenge of getting creative with what I can eat has me trying all kinds of things. I believe the word “diet” has a negative connotation that leads us to think depravation, or restriction. With the Keto diet, I have found this to be furthest from the truth. On a daily basis, I get to eat tasty, colourful and flavourful foods that I am loving. As my knowledge expands, so does my menu. The best thing is that the family is now tasting and liking the “Keto Food” I am making. There is hope in reducing their carb intake…

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!
