Hey blog friends! I hope you’ve been having a good summer and are ready to gear up for back to school if you have to embrace that time. If not, I hope you’re ready to transition to fall.

As promised from Tuesday’s post, today I’ll be sharing with y’all some food products I’ve loved thus far in my new lifestyle. As a recap, I am now living a gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free day-in-day lifestyle. I only plan on breaking my guidelines for special occasions or emergency situations. I’ve decided to start a new… Continue reading The Friday 10 #1
Upon my completion of Whole30, I was surprised in my results of how I felt and looked in the mirror. In truth, it wasn’t necessarily the number of pounds I dropped or the inches I lost from my waist, but the fact that I felt and looked healthier. I had a choice to make at… Continue reading My New Lifestyle
First off, I am the worst person at staying on track as far as blog posts. I’m sorry to anyone that has been reading and asking where the heck I was. There were some big shifts in my personal life that threw me off-balance and my time was better spent in other places. Now that… Continue reading How Whole30 Changed My Life

On Sunday, I… Continue reading Celebration Time!
+Whole30 Challenge Days 21-24 Day 21 June 21, 2017 Many things in my personal life piled on top of each other on this day. And it was mostly things that were negative and added to my frustration level. So, it was definitely a hump day. The only notes that I have from this Wednesday were… Continue reading Shop Local. Eat Local.
+Whole30 Challenge Days 17-20 Day 17 June 17, 2017 On Friday, I made notes in my planner that I wanted to head to the local farmer’s market in the morning and possibly the beach in the afternoon all on Saturday.

+Whole30 Challenge Days 12-16 Day 12 June 12, 2017 Mondays seem to be a bit more brighter when I don’t have to be anywhere in the morning. And this Monday was one of those days. It was also a dreary, rainy Monday, so I was super pumped that I didn’t have to be out… Continue reading Happiness is fitting into old clothes!!
Whole30 Days 7-11 Day 7 June 7, 2017 Up until this point in the challenge, I was eating mostly chicken breasts and eggs for protein sources since a) I love both foods and b) they were the easiest to make! But on this glorious Wednesday I discovered compliant Whole30 bacon and boy did my life… Continue reading New Food Discoveries!
I hate exercising. There I said it. I so wish that I wasn’t stuck in this mindset, but I’ve always viewed exercise as a chore rather than a benefit. I’ve never been an active person and was severely jealous over anyone that was a natural athlete (hello younger brother!). On the flip side, I always… Continue reading My Relationship with Fitness
+Whole30 Days 5-6 Day 5 June 5, 2017 My intense self-journaling seemed to come to a halt on Monday. I think in some ways I was already completely over this program. Or perhaps it was the fact that for the next couple of days all I wanted to do was nap. According to the… Continue reading New job & Support system
+Whole30 Challenge Days 3 & 4 Day 3 June 3, 2017 Weekends have always been my downfall when it comes to sticking to healthy options.

My (Un)Healthy Past My relationship with food has always been in a bad place. It’s started since I was a little girl. I’ve always compared myself to others in forms of jealousy and food. For example, my brother was a kid who was always active and because he played so many sports he would eat… Continue reading Starting my Health Journey!
