About Me

I love to take care of my hubby and kids, but when I'm not doing that, I'm working my Scentsy business as a consultant, as well as a Superstar Director! 
In my "spare" time, I can be found training for a marathon, or finding a new place to eat! 
I try to live each day to it's fullest!

I just want to say- "I feel AMAZING!"

I've just finished day 10 of my Whole30, and I feel amazing!
My energy levels are steady, my appetite is regular, my mood is right on track, I honestly feel like I'm on cloud 9! 
I did cheat on my scale today- I weighed in! I decided to weigh myself just to see if its moving in the right direction. I told myself that as long as I have lost a pound I would be happy. Well, I've lost 3.8 lbs so far! Granted, I could lose about 18 pounds when I started, I was a lot heavier starting this whole30 than I've been in years. So I'm sure the first 10 pounds will be easier than the last 8! Nonetheless, I am so happy and so motivated to keep this going! 
I honestly feel like this is "Me"! It's the way I believe we should eat, it makes sense- eat real food! Eat food that God made, not food from Man. 
My workout schedule has increased dramatically in the last few days. 
I'm now signed up to run a Ragnar relay in Washington DC! I have only 4 weeks to prepare for this race. My goal is to not get injured during my training or on race day. So I'm still taking my runs easy but my mileage is a lot more than I've done since April. So say a little prayer for me that my body gets stronger and holds up to the physical pressure I'm putting it through! 
Today I did experience some tired legs today and also back on day6 I noticed the familiar tired leg syndrome I had when I did my first whole30. I remember my legs feeling like they weighed a million pounds each. It was painful and tiring even walking around the block. 
Maybe I just need to eat more sweet potatoes? Something that'll give me more carbs for energy? If anyone has tips in this issue, please share! 
Here are a couple pics of some good I've been eating!
