Alrighty everyone... time for a little personal moment. I have been thinking about writing this post for a few weeks, but honestly was a little nervous about it. Sometimes it makes me squirm to acknowledge my imperfections or my past mistakes because well, who wants to really come face to face with those things? Yesterday I read … Continue reading Learning from my mistakes…
Happy Sunday everyone!!! Is anyone ever ready for Monday? I think my case of the Monday's gets worse with each week, especially when there is a holiday around the corner. This week, my family flies in from Ohio and I can't wait to see them! Even though they were just here in Christmas, it seems … Continue reading Vegan Carrot Cake Protein Bites
It's hump day!!! With hump day has to come a yummy recipe right? Are you a fan of fried rice? Hub LOVES fried rice; I could take it or leave it. I have been wanting to test out some new recipes this week and since this was one of his favs, I thought I would … Continue reading Simple Quinoa Fried Rice
Who doesn't love dessert for breakfast?! Ok... this isn't really DESSERT, but bear with me. It's lent and hub and I gave up sweets, so I'll take whatever I can get right now!

I commonly talk about food, eating healthy, and filling your body up with nutrient-dense foods while still taking time to indulge every once and a while. Occasionally, you will catch me talking about exercise or sharing some things that I like to do to keep myself physically active. One thing I want to emphasize a … Continue reading Why diet and exercise work better together!

Ok, so I announced a few weeks ago that I was doing the Whole 30, but I never mentioned if I finished or how it went. All of these thoughts and feelings are my own. You or someone you know may have had a completely different experience. To answer the first question of did I … Continue reading What did I think of the Whole 30?
So, I think I have made it perfect clear I'm not about "dieting." It almost pains me to admit that I'm trying the Whole 30, primarily because it means that yes, I am currently attempting to follow a strict and regimented diet. I wanted to take the chance to explain why I am doing this and how … Continue reading Whole 30 Journey
