Welcome

I'm not sure how people make a welcome post on a blog? But here I am. Flaws and all :)
My name is Alicia. My blog is called "Tho she be but little" Which I derived from the shakespeare quote "Though she be but little, she is fierce!!"(Midsummer night's dream) I am a very short, small 26 year old woman, and my whole life I have been called "tiny but tough". I take that as a compliment. I stand at a mere 5'2" and in my twenties I have met many people my height or shorter than me, but my height still seems to be capitalized on :) I'll take it. I'm comfortable short.

Aside from being short, I also enjoy being a mom to my two beautiful little girls. We will call them Angel and Sunshine. Angel is 7 and the sweetest girl you ever met. She will paint you a picture and let you cry on her shoulder and help you with anything that is needed. Sunshine is a firecracker. She is somethign fierce and still has a heart of gold. If she wants something, she gets it. If you're hurt she says "sorry". If she is mad, sad, happy... she shows it. She is two. These girls are my world. We made a family. Then along came my handsome husband, B. He's pretty amazing. He compliments us all well and has a wonderful heart.

My family is my reason. For everything. But I also enjoy writing(something I have long lost the time and patience for) reading, playing sports, lifting weights, finding recipes for healthy foods, and of course, I love Jesus. this blog is dedicated to all of these things.

I am juggling a full time job, mommy-hood, wifely duties, relationships, my own personal passions, and my relationship with Christ all at the same time. I feel unorganized and always running behind. But.. I am learning to smile through it all. What is life if it is not enjoyed? lived? Felt with passion? I am here to feel that passion and share it at the same time. enjoy :)

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum. 
Leftover…
