I did it

A couple nights ago  I completed Day one of the cleaning challenge, and my sink looks great! Fly lady promised to have my smiling like crazy and it does make me smile. I was surprised.

There's a glass cup stopping up my sink. We don't have a sink plug. Our drain is too big. No excuses. :)

I wish I took a "before" picture. Oh well. Trust me that it is much prettier now. :)
Tonight's challenge starts the beginning of some new positive habits so I'm excited for that. Baby steps. 
I also went to kickboxing that night.

It's not something I get to regularly do because of my husbands work schedule and class schedule conflicts so it was nice. It's a late class so I woke up too late today for crossfit but I popped in an insanity DVD and only missed the last few minutes due to a yelling tollder. I'm feeling good. 

This was my breakfast Yesterday:

That is a crustless egg bacon onion quiche. Yes, it's green. Yes, I still ate it. It was amazing. 

Lunch I improvised. And fell in love. I had some greens and brown turkey I brought with me from home, with some veggies thrown on top. I'm not a big ground meat fan and I was worried I didn't have enough protein so I ran to the store and used their salad bar to grab some boiled eggs. I grabbed a cherry chia kombucha while I was there and viola 

Lunch is served. 

I also put stuff aside for a PWO later:

(Avocado, Veggies, and the dreaded ground turkey)

For dressing I have a concoction that I make my own. It's basically half and half grape seed  oil and balsamic vinegar with a little crushed garlic and shallot with thyme mixed in. It's really good. I just googled grapeseed oil salad dressings one day and went from there. 

I am very happy to discover my love for flavored kombucha. 

I have a sad addiction to sugar free red bull and I'm hoping this is going to be a good replacement.

What is on your plate today?

Just another story.

I have been told telling my story will help.. people. I don't see how that is the case but I figure there is some reason I have dealt with the things that I have. So I'll start out simple.


Crippling. Suffocating. Like a straight jacket warn under water.

Sounds so dramatic. So exaggerated. But it's so real. There's a quote that describes it perfectly "You don't need water to feel like you're drowning, do you?" no. I don't.

I've always had anxiety. for as long as I remember. After I had my youngest child it got significantly worse. It was no longer a panic attack that I would get over once I figured out or was proven everything would be okay. It was tightness in my chest all night and I didn't know why. It was someone is going to get sick and I know that will kill us all. It was sleeping in his room every night for months. It was waking up every few hours to check his breathing. It was my daughter has a sore tooth it's all goi…

Meal Prep Monday 11/25/13

My days are a haze of dishes laundry sweeping meal prep dog poop people poop making people foods and watching people eat cake and pizza. And Ice cream.  I never realized how much junk food I was surrounded by until very recently.  But it's cool. I have coconut butter, dates, coffee and Lara bars. Life is good. :)
Sun- chicken "fingers" and sweet potato fries with mixed veg.
M- Shrimp and (leftover) chicken and "fried riced cauliflower"
T- chicken tortilla-less soup
W- breakfast for dinner - self explanatory. Easy. Cheap. Favorite.
Th- thanksgiving !! At someone else's house ;)
Fri- taco night. I have renamed pizza night taco night. Because I can. Because I'm mom. This week will be ground turkey tacos because it's the cheapest if bought in  bulk.
Sat- leftovers

Breakfast: I made myself a frittata and  hubby has breakfast sandwiches I make him. He's super picky about healthy foods and if left to his own devices lives off bagel bites and chips. Which …

Whole30 again? Why?

I'm on day 9 of a whole30. I've done them before and I eat FAIRLY decent(I have my moments) but I felt like it was time to do another.
I was feeling fatigued, anxious, depressed, and my skin was atrocious. I wasn't sleeping well and my hormones were very obviously out of whack. I know a whole 30 improves all of these things so much so my goal was to just jump in and do one. I know how this goes, I've read all the books, I've done a handful of them within the last few years, and I am not new to meal prep. In fact, I have had several false starts in all of January and February of 2017 and I meal prepped almost every weekend of said months. My best friend said that she was ready to do one after a long time of considering it and I jumped on board. Something clicked this time and I have so far been successful.
Why am I doing it this time.
Besides the obvious benefits everyone explains about a whole30, I specifically wanted to feel my best mentally and physically because…
