|| Hair and Life|| That moment your hair style makes you feel like you truly entered womanhood 😂🤦🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️. I’m not sure why this selfie made me feel like a 30 year old woman but it did 😂✌🏼. 1 1/2 years until I’m the BIG 30!! I’m not sure why that makes me want to cry 🤷🏽♀️😂😭. All the feels tonight for sure. I have seen two beautiful families on social media lose their loved ones today. My heart breaks for them, and I pray for comfort for their families. Losing loved ones no matter their ages is hard. But it also reminds me life can be long or short. It also reminds me to make the ➖in my lifetime count! Aug 1989 ➖..... I want that dash to be a legacy. I want to be a mother who is called blessed. I want to be a wife who honored and respected her husband. I want to be a woman who truly lived a Christ like life. I want to be the person who is there for the lost, lonely, tired, weak. I want to be the woman God called me to be. I want to use my gifts for Gods glory. I want to be the best daughter, sister, family member, friend I can be. I fall short daily from these. But know I’m trying know I’m pushing for that dash to mean something great. To my family and friends know that I love you greatly. Know that my kindness was sincere. Know that the days I was short with you or hurtful I’m truly sorry for. Know that YOU mean something to me. That is all ....

Have I mentioned how hard it has been for me to switch from keto to carb cycle ?!?😐 It’s a mental game, and I’m also overcoming poor body image. I have never liked my body growing up! I can remember my smallest was 118 and I thought I was huge! I was size 4-6 and still saw fault in my body. Yet I’m overcoming that through this journey. There are days that are more overcoming than others, like today for instance. I showed up to the gym and all I could see was fat on my body. I feel more bloated doing carb cycle but I knew I had to change it up for my body as I felt like passing out on keto with heavy lifting. So me posting this selfie isn’t because I’m feeling 💯, it’s actually the complete opposite about my body. I’m frustrated with my macros, and frustrated that I can’t figure it all out over night 😂🤷🏽♀️. But it takes time and I know I will look back at this picture and smile because of how far I will have come. Today I love the person that God made. Today I love myself for where my body soul and mind are. Good job self, your not giving up on your goals and your pushing through.#thatketomomkrystal l#thatketomomkrystalcarbcycles#keto#ketofamily#ketogenic#carbcyclelife#carbcycling#foodie#overcoming#bodyimage
|| Recovery Tea || Here's to praying this tea helps my throat! In the beginning of my keto journey I was BIG on drinking apple cider vinegar to help burn fat! Which I still recommend BUT instead of taking it in water I thought, I want to drink it as a shot so I don't have to drink a WHOLE GLASS OF WATER with it. 😬🤷🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️. BAD IDEA!! One day I was in a hurry shot it down and I couldn't breathe! It hit my throat wrong and ever since my vocal chords have been messed up 😑. Praying for a healing and hoping this remedy helps! My pastors wife recommend some olive oil in some tea, along with honey. I'm trying the olive oil without the honey first (being on keto ) and going to see if it helps! In Jesus Name my vocal chords will be healed! #vocalchords#oliveoilremedy#thankful#oolongtea#thatketomomkrystal#keto#pumpkinspiceoolongtea#pumpkinspice
