I'm Ready

Before I share tons of pictures with y'all, I want to take a moment to thank you for all of the support and encouragement on yesterday's post. I have had so many messages, comments, and texts from many of you since I shared things here. I am blessed to have so many people supporting me through the good, the bad, and the crazy. It means so much to me that y'all took the time out of your day to write to me. Thank you so very much and it was very needed.

We had an evening of boating with our family this week. We are definitely a water lovin' family. 


The kids enjoyed riding the tube around the lake and swimming.





I honestly think they had more fun trying to wrestle each other off the tube, my husband included. Sometimes he's the biggest kid I have.


I love seeing these guys spend time together. Ryan is a great father and those two boys are so much like him it's pitiful. 



We've learned that the girls have to stick together to survive the boys this summer.


I had some questions about continuing with the Whole 30 approach to eating while I am battling this sickness. I do actually want to continue, but finding the time and energy to food prep and plan is a struggle right now. I know deep down it is not that hard, but my emotions are clouding that judgement. I get so run down sometimes that I just really feel like I need an Oreo or cheese. I run to my comfort foods when I am feeling blah. And that is one hundred percent on me. Yes, I really do know better. But some days, the emotions win. I've had a few too many days like that. There's really no excuse for it other than the fact that I made the wrong food choices. And those food choices are absolutely not helping me in any way. When I put junk in, I know I will get junk out. I know many of you are battling with making consistent bad food choices too and I want you to know that it happens. But we have a choice to make now. We can either let it spiral out of control or we can buckle back down.

So, let's take things one day at a time. Let's make the right choices just for today and we can build on that tomorrow. You ready too?

  1. I've recently had some major health issues that shut down my system. A large reason is because I added processed foods, gluten, and all that stuff back into my diet a few months ago. It took that much time for my body to show the signs of damage and it was not pretty. I am now resetting myself and will be eating healthy foods once again. I will miss cheerios, bread, and oreos, but mostly I have missed being healthy these last few weeks. Good luck with your journey!! I love reading your blog and look forward to your healthy recipes.
