Mother's Day, Keto, Fasting and RV Living

It is 9:30 pm on Mother's Day evening, and I am sitting in my RV preparing for bed. I had a very relaxing day with the dogs and my partner. We just went to the beach, drove around Key West, stopped in Big Pine to see some Key Deer, then came home and took a nap.
I decided to fast today. For those who follow me on Facebook, you may have seen that I have started a #ketodiet. It is essentially a low carb, high fat diet. Your goal is #ketosis so your body is burning fat instead of sugar for energy. I have played around with a low carb diet for years, but I just couldn't / wouldn't give up my wine. I finally took the plunge in late April, and since then, I have lost almost 19lbs.

As I have been studying this diet, I have also seen research that a three day fast can help regenerate your immune system. This excited me, and I have decided to incorporate occasional fasts. Since I am not accustomed to this, I decided to just try a one day fast to see how it goes. I have been lower energy today, but that was not a big deal since I was off work. I will eat tomorrow, since I need my energy for massage appointments. I just drank water and a few glasses of herbal tea this afternoon. I had minimal hunger cravings, and feel pretty good. When things calm down a bit (perhaps in a week or so), I plan to attempt a three day fast.

Life has been wonderfully low-drama over the past few months. Part of that has been by determined steps that I have taken, but part is also that my life is completely different than it was just a few months ago. I am in the process of rediscovering "me." I am now living in my own RV full time. I will stay with my partner and we share meals together, but my RV has become my haven. It is truly my space, and I feel like it is sacred to me. I have come to realize that I needed this place to recharge my soul. It is gratifying to know that this is my space, and no matter where I choose to go, my home will be with me.

It is 10 pm now, and my pups are already snuggled in our bed. I will close for now. I wish you all a good night.
