Hi all! I’ve been locked out of this account for 8 long months and it was driving me mad. I had problems with my password so I changed it and then quickly forgot it and then had problems with my Authenticator app but now all is well. I even started another blog but only posted maybe twice. I am so glad to be back to this familiar platform.
In other news, I have baby #2 on the way and we couldn’t be more excited! Life is so busy with a toddler running around that this pregnancy seems like it’s going by really fast. We will welcome baby #2 in late summer and believe me I will post pics when our little bundle arrives. :-)
We also just adopted 6 new baby chicks, in addition to our 2 full grown chickens that reside in our backyard.
Hey all! I am now 15 pounds down and counting. I am in my second week of 21 Day Fix and I am starting to fit into my old pre-pregnancy clothes again but more importantly I am feeling great!!
This has been such a blessing in my life. The ladies on my team are so supportive and always there with a compliment or word of encouragement. I’d like to share a Shake-o-logy recipe if I may. It’s one I have been enjoying every day, sometimes twice a day.
Chocolate Cherry Bomb Shake
1 scoop chocolate Shake-o-logy (I use the vegan choc)
Handful of ice
1/2 purple container (included in the 21 Day Fix package) frozen pitted cherries
1/2 a large banana
2 tsp peanut butter
10 oz filtered water
Blend and ENJOY!

So, for the past few weeks I have been a little busy. I am a stay-at-home mom, wife, chicken owner, gardener, babysitter, dog owner, blogger and I have a house that has to stay clean. I recently met a lady that has changed my life. I had been praying for an opportunity to arise where I could take something that I have a passion for, like exercising and eating healthy and turn it into something that might bring an income into my family’s life. I finally found the answer!
We have been struggling. I am talking about my family. I so desperately want to stay home with my baby and can’t imagine missing all these sweet days with him. We have been struggling to make ends meet, living paycheck to paycheck. We have medical bills that have piled up because of our lack of health insurance. We struggle to buy groceries at times. We have no savings. I know a lot of you can probably relate, right?
Enter: Heather. A friend of mine liked her page and it showed up on my Facebook page. She was a BeachBody health and fitness coach who is always putting up positive, cheery posts. I could tell from her posts that she is also a person of faith, like myself. She has a heart for moms that want to stay at home with their babies and she reached out to me. We clicked instantly and I could tell my life was about to change.
The plan was to order the program and shakes, stick to it and learn how to coach and motivate other people in the same situation. I had to save up for a few weeks to order the Shake-o-logy drink that she recommended and the workout program, 21 Day Fix. She also told me that if I signed up as a coach that I would save 25%. What did I do? I signed up as a coach because of course, why would I not want a discount? Makes sense right? YES!!!
I started the program. These are just some of the meals I’ve eaten on 21 Day Fix.
I can honestly say that I have to eat more food on this diet than I normally eat. It’s awesome!!
Well, now I am knee deep in the program. I am on my second day of 21 Day Fix and I am loving it. Don’t get me wrong, it is so hard!! So far, my favorite Shake-o-logy is the Chocolate and the Chocolate Vegan. For those of you that don’t know anything about Shake-o as we so lovingly call it in the BeachBody world, it is not a protein drink. Don’t get me wrong, it has protein in it but it also has vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, fiber, probiotics, super-foods and more! It tastes great and it will help with digestion, which is especially good if you are having gut problems or are constipated. There are 6 different flavors and you can add banana or peanut butter or what-ever you want to it to make it creamy and delicious!

Beachbody is a WHOLE package. I would love to help you get fit. I am on a journey that is long and hard but so worth it. I am still in the middle of my training but I have learned so much and am anxious to share my knowledge. I’ve made new friends, been encouraged to better my body, soul and life and now I’m being held accountable by being a coach. I’ll be back with my before and after pics in 21 days.
Think about it. Pray about it. Let the Lord lead you.
I was doing so well eating today until that 2 o’clock slump hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn’t have any sweets in the house because I know if I have them I will eat them. What did I choose to do? I baked a cake from scratch then I ate a quarter of it. My husband makes fun of me because he knows that I will bake to my heart’s content if I have a sweets craving. It’s so frustrating because I always eat the cake/cookie/pie etc. then I feel terrible because I feel guilty and yucky. I did something different this time though… I got up, threw the remaining cake in the trash and got on the treadmill. I watched an inspiring weight loss video on You tube and I walked a mile.
I guess I am just plain going to have to give up the sugar altogether. It seems so extreme but I am addicted to it. I can’t control myself around it. I’m just going to have to give it up and I am starting now. Will you follow me on this journey? I will start by eating fruit when I have a sugar craving along with drinking tons of water and eating healthy meals and snacks. Do you guys have any books or articles you recommend on quitting sugar? I know this is going to be hard but as they say, nothing worth doing is easy. I’ll be back!
