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.

This Summer

I am so glad that today is Friday.  Not only is it the weekend, but it means we get to start another week on the right foot!  My braces are still causing my teeth to hurt a bit, but at least I don’t want to rip my teeth out anymore. 

With Fall fast approaching, I have been thinking about how much I have enjoyed this Summer.   How much change this summer brought about.  How my focus shifted from feeling so insecure, to not worrying about things.  About excepting myself for who I am and not stressing about a number on a scale.  Stop worrying about what others think of me and living my life anyway.   

 

There have been lots of hikes.

I swear if Summer could have a taste, this would be it!

 

 

I’ll be honest, going into this season of Summer I wasn’t sure how things were going to go.  We all experience seasons in our lives and they sometimes can take our breath away.   What I realized was that knowing how things were going to go this summer was not something I needed to figure out.  I just had to live my life. 

 

Not just existing in life, but living in it.

Taking care to notice things around me that make me smile. 

Focusing on the positive

Stealing moments of solitude

Hoping in a future

A good future

Loving myself enough to take deep breaths

Living in each moment

 

 

Life really is beautiful.  This past Summer (even though it’s not over yet) has been a great one!  I can’t wait to see what Fall brings!

 

What about you?  How has your Summer been so far?
