In the middle of making dinner and didn't realize how frickin hungry I was until I put everything in the oven and the smell wafting from the oven had my stomach growling. Luckily, for me, I have Shakeology in my cupboard. Otherwise, I would have just grabbed whatever was handy. Namely....the brownies in the cabinet. 😨😨😱😱
This is just one of the many many reasons why our nation is struggling as a whole with weight my friends! The laundry list of reasons is very long, but the portions sizes offered to us is absolutely among them! . I must note that the foods on this chart are not the healthiest of options, however I wanted to show you this so you could see what is going on with our portion sizes compared to years ago. . Please ignore the bottom right corner...... we won't count that one. 😜
Can we just talk about these for a minute? They. Are. Delicious! I grabbed them today for my daughter, Kamryn to snack on. They are sitting here on the counter staring at me! I am on day 10 of my 21 Day Ultimate Reset. I haven't had anything that hasn't been on my plan. I've been following it to a "T". Today I've struggled. I've had thoughts like "one little bite of ______ won't hurt" I've thought "is all of this cooking, prepping, planning worth the time and effort?!" But I know it is worth it and I will only be disappointed on myself if I go off plan. Holidays and being sick for 3 weeks in December took a toll on me. My jeans got too tight and a dress I used to feel fabulous in now makes me feel self conscious. As some of you know, I normally don't weigh, but I did at the start of this detox/cleanse and on day 7 I was down 3.6lbs. And while it hasn't been all glamorous and easy breezy, I know that this is so good for my body. My taste buds now think that fruit is as sweet as candy. I've found so many new foods that I love. My digestive system is getting a complete reboot. I'm going to stick with it. So, Lenny & Larry, I'm sorry. It's not you, it's me.
There is so much negativity that gets thrown around a daily basis, even on the holidays. Starting in 2017 I will start to surround myself with only people that have their best intentions in life, along with mine. I love people like that. 💢🤘💢🤘💢 I also have some extremely EXTREMELY exciting news. Do you like fitness? Do you like Netflix? Do you like working out from the luxury of your living room, hotel room, or on a boat? Literally I just found out I can workout literally anywhere I want as long as I have my phone or computer. Im pretty freaking pumped about that. I dont know about you but thats a badass Christmas/New Year gift to myself. #newyear#justdoit#noexcuses
I'm a little bummed out, guys. Because one of the things that bothered me this morning about Facebook was a very well known Christian speaker posted with some very unchristian per se posts. Look, none of us are perfect in our Christian walk. We ALL fall short of what Christ calls us to be. I am very included, Lord knows! But it has bothered me all day because I feel that it's unfair of this person to manipulate the truth of Gods word to millions and I mean millions of people. And please hear my heart- I am by no means the smartest person in the room with full understand of everything God himself thinks and does. I do know, though, that in this case- God is very clear. So I encourage you if that still small voice in your mind says "ooh- maybe I better check deeper into that." Please do. Don't blindly follow the masses. Search Gods word above all else, and if it seems wrong- it probably is. #love#seekhimfirst#dontcave
