The Ketogenic Diet, Help, and Separation Anxiety - RN 071
5 days ago
I’m attempting to live by a certain dietary plan called the Ketogenic Diet. I hate using that term though, because it sounds like a fad diet and it’s not. It’s a way of healthy eating that utilizes your body’s chemistry to its full potential, eliminating unnecessary carbs and sugars. To explain it in full detail, here is a link to a website full of information at Authority Nutrition. I have not adopted it fully, although I’m trying to. I love carbs and sugar so much that I keep falling off the wagon. But the key is to get back on and try again, so that’s what I plan to do. In my business, I hired a young artist to help me with layout drawings so that I could spend more time with my family. I was having to use my weekends to draw layouts for customers instead of spending those moments with my wife and children. This new artist has been a blessing and I’m grateful to have her doing work for me. I had a little bit of separation anxiety after being away from my four year old daughter so much. With my wife on a crutch and seriously immobilized, chasing and caring for a child my daughter’s age is nearly impossible, so she’s been staying with my mom a lot. THE STUFF TO DO REVIEW: Guardians Of The Galaxy (Vol. 2). This is a sequel that is as good as or surpasses the original film. It stars Chris Pratt as Star Lord and hosts several other big names in supporting roles including, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Deisel (as Groot), and Bradley Cooper (as Rocket Raccoon). It’s a Marvel Studios film that originally never was expected to become the phenomenon that it has. I loved the first one and my son and I can’t decide if we like this one just as more or maybe even a little more. Question To Ponder: If you could go back in time and do one thing differently, what would it be?
