Whole30 day 1 and peak 313 living and active challenge week 3 (late posting of a blog written on 10/13)

It's officially. I'm all in. I went to bed without sweets last night. By the grace of God and God only. Because I don't remember the last time I did that.
I even looked for cookies.

Which is never good. I did the same thing last night when there was ice cream in front of me. It's a challenge, and sometimes I don't believe myself, but I know the great taste of it in that moment is not worth the physical and emotional and even mental reactions I will get from eating said food. One day I will figure out what is "worth it", what I can handle in moderat…

Welcome to my new life

This is my new life. Puppy love. Awesome kids. School work. Meal plans. Work outs. Staying home. Less fear. More trust.
I'm such a work in progress.
