Morning Mindset: The Gap Focus!

Updated: Sep 9, 2022

    "The majority of people do dozens, even hundreds of things right during the day, and a few things wrong. Guess which things people remember and they replay over and over in their minds? Doesn't it make more sense to focus on the hundred things that you did right, and not the ten things that you missed?" 

Hey everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie and I'm tuning in from Orlando, Florida with my entire family. My parents, my two sisters, my brother, all of the in-laws, and then 14 grandkids. We are staying here for a last summer family vacation, and it's been so fun.

A lot of you have asked where in Orlando are we staying. We're staying at an Airbnb called "The Treehouse Mansion". It's just incredible, and it's our last week of summer. So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from?

I want to give you a couple thoughts today about vacation, life in general, the power of consistency, mindset, food, or just about anything.

I think that people think being busy is bad. I don't think being busy is bad at all. When people tell me that they haven't seen me in a while or what have I been up to? I always say "I've been productively busy". Because my husband and I, our family have been really working on saying "Yes" to the things that are important to our family, and "No" to the things that might not be important, or might just not be a yes right now.

We might be busy, but we're busy with the things that our family sees value in, the things that we want to focus o, and being productive.

So the question I get a lot when we're traveling is, "Do you stay on track?", "What are you doing?", "Do you still read?"...

Yes! and Yes! I'm perfectly strict keto, but we do the best that we can. Simple things like drinking water, drinking ketones, and choosing bacon over doughnuts. There are just different things that you can do to choose better if you want to. I'm not saying that you have to.

And as we travel and do different things, I still get up in the morning and read. For example, I got up early, I was reading my Bible, and my dad asked me what the lesson was for today. And the lesson was, "I get to, not I have to"...

I was reading "The Miracle Morning" by Hal Elrod this morning. I was having some good conversations, and I really wanted to read a couple of things to you to help you on your journey, wherever you are right now. These are just some things to think about here on the Keto mom page. And you can always go to for recipes, how to get started, our book Club, and anything else that you need.

You can continue to tune into the Keto Mom page, where we share recipes all day long, and different tips and tricks. My hope is to inspire, encourage you, and give you some tips and tricks along the way and throughout your day.
