Bluebirds, Buttermilk Biscuits, Bubble Butts, and Recovery Days

This week has been...unexpectedly impactful so far, and it's not even halfway over. First, I'm pretty sure a pair of bluebirds is nesting in my birdhouse, or will soon. I've seen them at least a few times a day the past few days-yesterday they stayed for over an hour around lunchtime, and almost as long [...]

Time for a Fitness Manifesto…

I am strong. I am beautiful. I am mighty and an overcomer. I am not defined by, nor does my worth come from the number on a scale or the tag in my pants. A life well lived is not measured in calories, but in hugs, kisses, smiles, and laughs. In prayers prayed, in people [...]

Health update 2/22/18

If you've been following this blog for six years or longer, you know that my fitness/health/weight loss journey has been one of many peaks and valleys. If you've only been following three years or less, you might think I must have no idea what's going on or how to make weight loss happen. The past [...]

Awaken and…Cultivate

I’m starting another series. Because I like to organize things and because the things I write about go in so many directions, it’s nice to feel like there’s some method to it. This series is going to be an expansion and exploration of all the “ands” God seems to be adding to my word for [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Five

This week was crazy and wonderful and different, because Scott took the week off! It was wonderful beyond words, and though I’m a bit worn out in some ways, I’m renewed in others. Food: even with Scott home this week I are really well, and I’m proud of that! Only thing really of note is [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Four

Here I am, halfway through the week again, and just now recapping things.  MomLife- Whaddya gonna do? I don't think I even promoted my last post on my SM accounts. It was a good week, though, and I'm super excited about where I am finding myself and where I see myself going in the near [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Three

So, yeah, this is a little late...but here I am! This past week I found myself not just feeling better than I had before that terrible energy trench last month, but better than I have in, maybe years, physically, at least. Mental health is improving, but, as I hope to share more about soon, it’s [...]

Fall Health Goals Week 2

What a week! I am so glad I’ve made these changes! It’s still fairly early days to know all the benefits and effects, but I am so excited to share with you what I’m experiencing so far. First, I want to share about the aesthetic stuff that I am officially not focused on right now, [...]

What’s on my plate? Fall 2017 Food and Supplement roundup

I wanted to do a quick post about how I’m fine tuning my nutrition to match my goals in this season, so y’all have some context for my updates. First, Supplements! You might Recognize the Barlean’s fish oil from this spring-I’m adding it back in because it’s the best way to get my EPA. I’m [...]

One week into Health Goals Fall 2017…

First, Thursday is a weird day to be writing these updates, so after this I’ll be switching to Sunday or Monday. So, expect to hear more about this week then. So, a week ago I wrote about how I was going to shift my focus until at least the end of October to taking care [...]
