Something about the models walking the DKNY catwalk last month in coifs that Lucky magazine called “slicked-down tendrils” - known in my hood as baby hair - tweaked my Queens-reared soul.

I felt a similar pull in April when Marie Claire

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28, NLT)

Everyone goes through things that don’t seem to make sense. It’s easy to get discouraged and wonder, “Why did this happen to me?” “Why did this person treat me wrong?” “Why did I get laid off?” But we have to understand, even though life is not always fair, God is fair. And, He promises to work all things together for good for those who love Him.

I believe the key word is this verse is “together.” In other words, you can’t just isolate one part of your life and say, “Well, this is not good.” “It’s not good that I got laid off.” “It’s not good that my relationship didn’t work out.” Yes, that’s true, but that’s just one part of your life. God can see the big picture. That disappointment is not the end. Remember, when one door closes, God has another door for you to walk through — a better door. Those difficulties and challenges are merely stepping stones toward your brighter future. Be encouraged today because God has a plan for you to rise higher. He has a plan for you to come out stronger. He has a plan to work all things together for your good so that you can move forward in the victory He has prepared for you!

Permalink This image signified how I felt after my 4 day vacation fro ketogenic eating.  I am fully aware of the health benefits of eating clean but I disregarded it for my four day getaway with all you can eat delicacies: ie sugar, carbs.

I came back from vacation feeling like crap, literally.  Not only was I tired but always hungry and dehydrated.  My first sign I was out of keto and consuming way too much carbs was this insatiable thirst.  I felt my cells becoming dehydrated. Secondly, the constant need to eat. Because I was not consuming enough fats and proteins,  I was hungry very often and had cravings for the things my brain thought it needed like cakes, rice and any high sugar content item. Keep in mind that my usual daily sugar intake is 20 to 50 grams a day.  I know, I know 50 grams.  Ok some days I’m not super strict but that number is low enough that my body recognizes the change in in insulin use.  

I can like myself to my patients who has some insulin disorder because my symptoms felt like what I read in my text books.  

After this experience no one can convince be that there are any benefits to eating a higher carb diet.

There are some things I miss but it’s not worth it to me.
