Actually, Saratoga! But I spent a lot of time last summer until I moved at Great Escape. It was great for getting in a lot of walking! I'm actually making plans to visit next summer to spend time with family and friends! Although, I don't think I've been to Saranac Lake. I should probably go when I visit!

I'll have to check both labels, as I do like variety. :) Thanks. And I just noticed that your tag says Northern NY. I lived an hour north of Albany for a little over a decade! I miss the people, just not the snow!

Also, it's cool that the cardiologists can see it as a teaching tool- I see a lot of them throughout the week so I like to pick their brain when I can. :)

lol i thought it was cool too after the multaq fixed it. i still have sometimes 20 k PVCs a day. the cardiologists love to use me for teaching.

the beef sticks are in with the summer sausage. in my store its when you walk in...on the right..theres chips and stuff and then the meat sticks. you have to dig through theres turkey ones and beef ones. the beef ones are keto compliant..i dont know about the turkey ones.

Oh man! Not going to lie, that sounds like one interesting heart rhythm. It's oddly fascinating to see the way a person's heart reacts to medications and I'm glad yours is being medically managed. (For those reading and not getting- SVT is super ventricular tachycardia- it's when the heart goes over 150 beats a minute and you can't discern if there's an atrial depolarization. Also bigeminy is usually but not always related to a premature ventricular beat in the heart rhythm. And afib, atrial fibrillation, is when the heart beats at an irregularly irregular pace and the atria doesn't readily fire causing the av node to pick up the slack for the ventricle to depolarize.) So cool (I guess in a morbid sort of way)



I'll have to make a trip to Aldi for some of those beef sticks. Been having a problem lately trying to get enough protein.

I'm on the other end of your reading..LOL..Long term lyme gave me SVT, Bijeminy, afib...such fun!! all controlled with meds now and helped immensely by keto.

my go to meals for lunches are cheese and aldi Simms Beef Sticks. or pepperoni. quick, filling and yummy..or hard boiled eggs. i know they arent crunchy but they help me!!

I'm a single mom of 3 but they are now grown...

I do the crafting too..quilt, knit, sew, love the outdoors (have a degree in forestry) and i DONT burn so i spend a lot of time in the pool..

So glad to have you with us...WELCOME!!! cant wait to get to know you!!

First off, HI! My name is Beth. I've done keto before in the past with pretty good results (lost about 50lbs in 6 months) so I'm back at it with a newfound thought process that this is a way of life and not just a diet for me.

A little about me- I work nights as a telemetry technician (I watch heart monitors for 12 hours a night). That means I usually eat quick meals that can be either made or reheated in a microwave or cold food snacks like cheese! (yum!!!) Also, I usually like crunchy things (cucumbers and dressing and celery with peanut butter are my go to right now), so if you have ideas, I'm all for it.

I'm also a single mom of 4 kiddos. So, if you have kid friendly snacks ideas, feel free to share.

In my spare time I love to craft- sew, crochet, paint, write, make wreaths. I also love video games and the outdoors if it's not too sunny (the sun and I aren't friends as I burn on even cloudy days.)

Anyhow, I'm super excite to be a part of a group who gets what I eat and why. I'm super excited to meet you all. :)

Stay calm and keto on,
Beth
