Keto Meal Prep. It’s what I do most 90% of the time. Meal prepping can be a great way to stay on track when life gets in the way.
Speaking of life, a lot has changed for me in the past 6 months.
Transitioning from mostly 1 on 1 nutrition clients to mostly working on The Keto Queens.
Finishing almost 2 cookbooks with Faith before the year is halfway over (we have more on the way too!).
I started bowling again back in October. I subbed my way to a 218 average by the end of December 2018. I started doing local tournaments back in March and in the end of April I competed in my first Professional Women’s Bowling Tournament.
I’ve started traveling again! End of October Erica and I did a girls trip up the East coast. We started with a day in Savannah, Georgia and then a day in Charleston, South Carolina, then 2 days in Washington DC where I visited with my cousin Ben and his girl friend Brenna.
After that Erica flew to Vegas and then I drove to Cleveland, Ohio where I visited with my other cousin Jess and her husband Andre. We got to explore the town for a day but I came down with a migraine and was down for the count. The next day I drove 16 hours straight back home to Florida.
Most recently I flew back to Cleveland, OH for my first PWBA tournament and got to spend some quality time with Jess and Andre. After that I flew to Salt Lake City, Utah where I met up with Erica and a bunch of other friends and food bloggers for the Everything Food Conference.
After the conference was over, Erica and I met up with her husband and their friend Kash. We then spent the next 3 days hiking and camping in the Grand Canyon and Arches National Park. I was then home for less than a week before I was on my next flight.
I’m writing you this on my way home from a crazy week. I flew out to Wichita, Kansas on my birthday (32nd!) for the Queens PWBA and USBC tournament.
I’m hoping to write a full recap so I’m gonna keep it super short here. This tournament is unlike any of the other PWBA tournaments. We bowl 5 games on 3 consecutive days and they take the top 64 (including the previous year’s champion) bowlers. Normally we bowl 16 games in 1 day, with only a 2 hour lunch break.
I didn’t do as good as I’d hoped. I placed 114 out of 192 and averaged 194.4 over 15 games. I definitely missed a bunch of makable spares which I’m not proud of, but now I know what I really need to work on. On the plus side, I am very proud of myself for making pretty good transitions and ball changes. There was only really 1 bad game where I couldn’t get anything to work.
I’m flying back home tonight May 22nd and I will fly to Sonoma with Erica on the 29th where we are having a girls trip + my third PWBA tournament of the season. We definitely plan to hit up the wineries between the bowling tournaments. I’m doing the national show + the regional show.
While all of this was going on, I was also going through a breakup. The ending of a 8 year relationship is never easy.
Since I can work remotely I’ve been giving serious consideration to buying an RV and traveling the Americas while working on the road. Before that happens, Faith and I are going to Europe for ~1.5 months. We have an airbnb in Paris for the month of July and after that, who knows?
We have tentative plan to travel to Italy for a week and then Greece the week after. Then I need to fly back to Orlando for the PTQ (pre-tournament qualifier) since it’s an Elite event and then the Regional Event is on Sunday.
Between the Sonoma Pro bowling tournament and the Orlando Elite bowling tournament, I only plan on competing in 2 tournaments. The first being our state Singles and Doubles tournament in Jacksonville, FL and the the other being a PBA regional tournament in Taveres, FL. This will be my first time competing in a PBA regional tournament against all of the guys.
One other big accomplishment is Faith and I finished creating a 4 week Keto Meal Prep Course. It includes 4 weeks of keto diet meal plans with calorie levels of 1200 calories, 1500 calories and 1800 calories. It comes with corresponding grocery lists for each week, printable menus, a 40 recipe ebook, how to meal prep ebook, and 5 bonus videos.
This project has been a labor of love for us. It will allow us to help many more people since I am no longer seeing 1 on 1 clients. It also comes with a private facebook group for accountability. Because knowing what to do is only half the battle. Everyone can use a buddy partner to help keep them accountable. This is so true for me when it comes to the gym as well!
So what’s next?
In July Faith and I will be leaving for Europe for a little over 1 month (maybe 1.5 months if I can swing it). Prior to that we are heading out to Austin, Texas for KetoCon. It will be my third year attending this conference. It’s always nice to network with like minded Entrepreneurs and to see what’s new in the world of keto.
Plus it’s always nice to meet new friends and to try all of the new keto products! Last year was the year of ice cream, and if I’m totally being honest I wouldn’t mind if this year was the same LOL.
That about wraps everything up. I’m not sure what my life will look like after mid August. Where will I live? Where will I travel? What does the future have in store for me?
Only time will tell.
