Lifestyle Change Not Diet


Two things that NEVER go out of style…Clean eating and exercise.

Daily Routines = Success


Being Offended

Learning not to take offense by what others say and do is something I have always struggled with but it’s something I am trying to overcome to become a joyful person.

He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love, but he who repeats or harps on a matter
separates even the closest of friends.
~Proverbs 17:9~

You ARE Beautiful!

Photo Credit: www.nourishandeat.comI’ve been in my upper 100’s, in my 200’s, was halfway to my 400’s and am now fighting to get out of my 300’s. No matter what size I was, society let me know that I didn’t fit their narrow definition of beauty. And I bought into it.

Stop believing the lies the media pushes and realize that the most beautiful thing about someone has NOTHING to do with the size of their pants and everything to do with the size of their heart.




10 Things to Remember




Life begins!


Well, it’s been a busy past few days and I am happy to finally have my husband home! Jon travels quite a bit and when you’re in a state without family and have a handful of friends, there’s not a strong support system in place which makes things stressful for both the kids and I.

I have used this many times as a reason to wander off the Paleo wagon but am now re-teaching myself healthier ways to deal with emotions. Thankfully it’s spring and there’s yard-work to be done, so I have been active outside. I’ve joined DietBet again but this time it’s a 6 month challenge and thanks to all the traveling that Jon does, our first family vacation will be FREE! But that means I will have to wear a bathing suit!!!!

Yes, I will take the plunge and wear a bathing suit…I am tired of letting my size hold me back from participating with my family and am going to ignore the stares of strangers that make me feel ashamed. My body is currently a work in progress along with my attitude and outlook….both are changing and need to step outside their comfort zone and ENJOY LIFE!
