Monday Update!

Afternoon!!  Just checking in to see how you are doing and for a quick update.  Things are still pretty busy at work but I took today off to have a long weekend.  I was going to go see my parents but it didn’t quite work out that way.  I am going to go see them soon! 

I feel so out of the loop when it comes to blog reading and posting.  I wish I had more time to read and surf like I did. 

Just a quick update in pictures…

One of the things I am going to focus on in the coming weeks is balancing out my meals better.  I do great for breakfast and lunch but when I get home and my brain is fried, I just want to chill out and not even think about eating.  Even when I meal plan and prep!

Focus time!!

Whole 30!!!

Good Morning!! I know it’s been a long time since I have posted but I hope to get better at that.  What I want to do is at least post 3 days a week…..Like Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  With a fulltime job and trying to have a life, I find it difficult to post everyday.  Smile

 

I do have some super cool news to share with you!   I started the Whole 30 Program this past Monday!!

For months, if not the past year, I have been trying to find something that would work for me and where I am at in my life right now.  I was pretty tired of feeling like crap all of the time and having these stupid cravings that was just continuing the whole crap feeling.  I began looking for something that would make me feel better.  I looked at supplements.  I looked at diets.  I looked at all kinds of things!  Nothing helped. 

I was surfing around Instagram one night and stumbled upon Lisa Medina Fitness and noticed that she had posted a picture of her results on the Whole 30.  I had read about it before but just wasn’t interested in giving up some things that I really liked, so I past.  As I went to bed that night, I just thought about how this might be what I need.  No pill, no shakes, no starving.  That sounds good on so many levels!

I started reading about it again and how some things had changed and improved and so I read and read.

Now I am like….”I can so do this!”

I also was interested in what foods, healthy or not, affected me.  Positively and negatively.

I was pretty excited to find out that Lisa was going to be doing another challenge group in August and I couldn’t wait to sign up!  Three weeks going into the challenge I started to clean up my diet and go ahead and incorporate some of the things that I would eventually have to do.  Smartest decision ever!

I was just ready for a change and this came at the perfect timing.  The food.  The workout.  Everything.  Mind, Body and Spirit.
