About Me

Hi! I’m Mary. Thanks for stopping by.

I love cooking and I love blogging. Since I started on my keto journey I thought creating an online space for me to keep track of my thoughts and progress on keto, as well as keep up a collection of my recipes.

My purpose in life, discovered after years of contemplating, is to help others in any way I can. I’ve always been a helpful person, friends often come to me for advice, and I love to share the knowledge and experiences I’ve had. It’s why I started my blog Living a Sunshine Life. It only makes sense that sharing what I’ve learned regarding keto would fit right into that mission, however I wanted a specific place to share keto related posts outside of my Sunshine Life blog.

Other things you might learn about me along the way are that I love my cat, we homeschool (I blog about that too, over on Homeschool Antics), and I would love to take up archery, just for the fun of it. I have a Master’s degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and someday I would love to get my PhD in Social Psychology with an emphasis on Positive Psychology.

I’m not an athletic person and I find exercise a chore (always have, even in elementary school), however give me a purpose like hiking while foraging, geocaching, or sightseeing in a new place, and I’m all over it.

My main goal with keto is to reduce inflammation. My allergies and arthritis pains are diminished when I’m on a keto diet, which makes my over all quality of life better. In addition, it gives me more motivation and energy, so that’s a plus too. Weight loss isn’t my main goal, but it is sort of a secondary goal because the less I weigh, the less stress on my joints, which will help with my arthritis too.

I’m glad you’re here to follow me on my journey and pick up a few new recipes along the way.

Follow me on social media to stay up to date on what’s happening here on the blog, as well as some of my random keto thoughts and findings.
