low carb, high fatters! I finally figured out my Starbucks drink - tall heavy cream SF cinnamon dolce latte !
so much delicious fatty energy and well worth the super weird look from the barista. yes, I want heavy cream. no, I didn’t mean half and half.
One hour of hungover yoga.
Homemade steak, guac, salsa, cheese salad. Cocoa roasted almonds. Bacon guacamole with pork rinds. Cucumber, chicken sausage, palak paneer. Tequila blanco and limes.
Merry Christmas to me lingerie. We had some friends over for a MEATING (meat meeting) which just turned into 3/4 of us gushing over Pokemon. Poor D.
+ quest bar, cream cheese, coconut oil coffee. lettuce wrapped blue cheese burger. sashimi and seaweed salad. so. much. champagne. (some even drunk in a rich, white lady, secret bathroom). oh and olives. and almonds at the ~fancy~ bar.
-hour of “power yoga” which really just felt like a hot pilates class. meh. walked 7 miles (which is a record for me in the last 30 days since i’ve mostly been in front of a computer)
i got invited to the nordstrom vip card holder champagne party. i mean i was my friend’s +1. i am currently wearing their zella leggings (oops i wasn’t supposed to buy anything other than a bra i can’t stop thinking about) and they actually may be better than wunder unders. but will they stand up to the ultimate test of hot yoga?!?! we shall see.
(ps. i have never needed chipotle more in my life than right when i woke up at 7 am.)
(pss. i am the queen of social faux pas lately. i sent d a text that said “naked date, later?” to which he didn’t respond. TURNS OUT, he didn’t turn his iMessage notifications off and that popped up while he was giving a work presentation. heh. i’m just going to die now.)
Anonymous asked: Hallo:] I'm really interested in the low carb high fat lifestyle- but I was hoping you could clear up a little confusion for me. All fats are not created equal right? What exactly are the kind that you look for in LCHF? Thanks!
THAT all depends on who you ask.
i, personally, do not discriminate any fat. i wish the good fats vs. bad fats thing would be dropped. there are different types of fat, yes, in the biochemical makeup but the “bad” fats (saturated and trans) aren’t as bad as what is still commonly accepted and the “good”(mono and polyunsaturated) may not be so good. saturated fats come from meat and dairy and coconut (hello most delicious things). why were we supposed to avoid it? to avoid heart disease and increased cholesterol? more and more research is coming out saturated fats really aren’t the key leading to cardiovascular problems. google. and trans fats are found in commercially packaged snacks and candy and i so rarely eat these things, i don’t have to think about it.
there are going to be a dozen studies supporting most ways of eating. just do what you can sustain. do what makes you FEEL the best.
Anonymous asked: You look AMAZING.
thank you! :D
i’m going to take this opportunity to throw out something that’s been floating around in my head for a while… i FEEL amazing too! i ordered some size 4 Long jeans from online AE last week terrified they wouldn’t fit. they didn’t. they were too big (not what i expected). yesterday for the first time since restricting/binging, i slid into (not squeezed) into 2 Longs. my ~disordered~ clothes are fitting and i’ve never taken in consistently as many calories. i don’t need as much sleep. i sleep better. i have more energy for yoga. i’m more motivated to work my ass ON in the weight room. “binges” are mostly nonexistent.
i jumped on the keto bandwagon in mid October. the induction was awful. i jumped off a week in November for my birthday. the induction was awful AGAIN. lately i’ve just defaulted to a LCHF lifestyle which doesn’t feel as drastic as keto? but i like to be able to eat a few sweet potato fries on leg day if i ~want~ or a salted caramel for hormones occasionally. and it just works. and it feels so easy! like i don’t deserve it. i lift 2x/week, maaaaaybe run once, and yoga it up 3x/week. i feel like i finally figured out how MY genetics work. diabetes, depression, and anxiety run rampant on my mother’s side so as more research comes out, this makes sense. eh, that’s a rabbit hole i don’t want to get into now. and it’s not for everyone. i happen to have a very similar minded partner and enough well-researched friends to make outings not always so ~awkward~.
i took some before pictures that got lost when i switched phones. i wish i still had them.
anyway, thank you again! <3
It’s impossible to get alone time around here. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria.
stretchy sun time.

flyygoldbikini said: WHY BOSTON COME 2 ME
Yeah! I’m spending Christmas week in Maine with D’s family (meeting the parents/eek). The easiest way to get there with the pug (he ruins everything) is to fly into Logan, rent a car, and drive three hours. Ideally we’ll have at least an afternoon in Boston on the way back to Seattle. ALSO, I’m thinking of extending *my* trip for NYC or longer in Boston, J. I just need to find a sweet air deal/place to stay.
