Full Episode Transcript:
Good morning! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. We are going to finish "The 5 Second Rule" by Mel Robbins today. She wraps up the book by talking about five seconds in relationships and reminding you about the rule. She basically said that if you ever have feelings of, "I should do this" or "I need to do that", just count backward (5-4-3-2-1) get up and move.

We are praying that it's going to work all winter. We also got some things fixed yesterday, and then we're going to probably redo some things in the spring. At least for now, we can flush our toilets already and we're happy about it... Okay! So we're going to wrap up "The 5 Second Rule" by Mel Robbins. I would love to know, do you feel like the five-second rule is helpful? Have you used it anywhere in your life with anything? By the way, as soon as the year starts and we're back into a normal routine, especially with school and things, my FB-lives will be much earlier.
Maybe it doesn't matter because you can watch it on replay, but I would prefer to do them earlier in the morning because I should start school soon. Currently, we're taking a break from school so everybody slept in, and I just did other things this morning.
My goal is to get your mindset right so that you're thinking positi
