Busy Mom and low carb life style

I am a true to testimonial of how trying to manage busy Mommy life and maintain a low carb life style can be a challenge. I have tried many “diets” but I’ve found just changing the way I eat and cut out all the sugary carbs my body responds best. So once again I’m on the low carb journey. I believe everyone has to find what works for them. So if I know what works for me then why do have a problem staying on track? By the 6 month mark and fall back into my bad habits. I have been successful several times and losing 60 to 100 pounds each time. I am a Mom of three crazy little monkeys and all three were here with  6 years ? and they were all big babies 9.11, 11.7 and 10.12. So that added to the weight gain each time also, thankfully I have never had any health concerns being heavy through my life.
Kids can be a great excuse for not eating the way your body responds best. It is way easier to grab a few packs of crackers, chips or stop for fast food. I’ve learned over time that it’s ok to throw items for myself in the snack bag.  If I have almonds or cheese sticks or just something to snack on while I’m out and about I’m less likely to get off track. There are 5 staple snacks that I like to have on hand to cover basis for a SNACK ATTACK…..you know what I’m talking about.

Hi, I am a blessed Mom of 3 little monkeys, 2 boys and 1 girl but my life has been full of little monkeys even before I became a Mom. I’ve worked in the veterinary field for about 20 years now and have taken care of many animals either in boarding, general medical and emergencies. I’ve been an emergency technician for the past 13 years and it has allowed me to have more one on one attention with my other little monkeys, my patients. Children and Animals have always been close to my heart and I love learning what I can to help them feel safe and secure and be happy and healthy. I have been with the love of my life for 16 years, he is a wonderful husband and father. My husband has a green thumb particularly favors tropical plants so I may chat about that from time to time. I enjoy scrap booking, themed birthday parties and kids crafts. I attend continuing education classes and conferences to keep up with the ever changing animal world. I am big on client education and making sure people are familiar with their pets needs. I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions in this monkey world of mine.
