Gym after baby and for the first time since 2015… Suck it up.

I’ve been doing floor exercises since June or July (3 or 4 months), slowly getting stronger. Using 5 pound weights for my arms and just doing bodyweight exercises for my legs with some rubber bands. It started off ridiculously slow. I could hardly do 10 of these guys on my left leg: And I couldn’t (and still can’t) get my leg straight on my right side because of the hip replacement: It started off incredibly frustrating but I got stronger Read More

Butcher Box – Beef Delivery Service for the States

Butcher Box codes!!! If you’re in the States (sorry fellow Canadians), there’s a great service called Butcher Box. I tried it when I was down there. There seems to be a Butcher Box service in Canada too which I will try out and post about soon. Here’s some info on Butcher Box in the States: 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef, free range organic chicken, and heritage breed pork, raised free from antibiotic and hormones. Now, like I’ve said, I don’t Read More

October Update All Beef Diet and Life

Hi Everyone! Sorry about the incredibly long silence. I’m going through some personal life drama (nothing health related) and I’ve been incredibly busy. I’ll update everyone on that later. All beef diet is still going strong! I am still alive and thriving. I will not have radio silence again for this long, and I am going to start a YouTube Channel in November! Stay tuned. Here are some quick updates (pepper reaction and baby update): Pepper reaction early August: I Read More

Hemorrhoids

Soooooo I didn’t really want to write this because, well, duh. But I’m going to anyway. Hemorrhoids are basically swollen veins that can protrude outside of your anus. They are not sexy. They are not comfortable. They suck. They’re also extremely common during pregnancy. I believe this is because people seem to get more sensitive to what they’re eating during pregnancy. (Not surprising considering your body is going through so many changes and you’re protecting the little one inside you. Read More

Favourite Shampoo and Conditioner (good for babies too!)

I went on vacation and didn’t fill up little travel containers with shampoo and conditioner and I really regretted it. The place I was staying had this horrible strawberry smelly stuff and I couldn’t get it out of my hair. I don’t use anything with perfumes because they bother me a bit (normal allergies). I LOVE this shampoo and conditioner. I think it’s helped with my hairs oil (I have naturally pretty oily hair). (Although what’s made the biggest difference Read More

Morning Sickness Cure

My experience with morning sickness: Whenever I ate something wrong I was incredibly nauseous. For instance, I started taking a prenatal that had soy and was nauseous that entire week (before I realized it had added soy). I had a severe reaction to something I ate and tried to take antidepressants. I actually ended up throwing those up. After the soy and antidepressant, when I was eating extremely low carb, no dairy, my nausea improved. I believe morning sickness is Read More

Favourite Products at Paleo f(x) – Salt, Toothpaste, and Baby Food

Super quick post about a couple of things I saw at Paleo f(x) that I really liked. I know this is late, but c’est la vie, better late than never. I couldn’t eat most of the things there, but it was an excellent time anyway. Great minds.   Redmond Real Salt This salt is weirdly tasty. It’s not Himalayan but I love it. I took a number of free samples (they were giving away a generous 2 oz per sample – which last Read More

Before and After – Mikhaila Through the Ages

Here goes. I’ve had a number of people comment, “Hey where’s your scar, that’s not a real pic of you,” or, “This isn’t Jordan’s daughter, she doesn’t have scars”, orrrrr “this diet can’t be that good, you looked good before, (or better)”. A) Most of my Instagram pics are from after I went low carb. So yeah they look pretty good. Thank you. B) The bikini pics are pre-baby, and low carb, so yeah, they’re going to look pretty good. Thank Read More

New Safe Diet Food!

Hi all, Big news, bad news. So for some reason, I’ve stopped being able to tolerate beef. It’s all I was eating and now I can’t stomach it, I guess the people who said I would sensitize to these foods were right. FORTUNATELY, I’ve found a solution. Insects. They’re basically meat and pretty crunchy. So far so good. I’ve only tried crickets but I’ve added links below to other insects. At least there’s more variety here, right? I highly highly Read More
