Is that YOU God?

The other day as I was contemplating my struggle with choosing the right things to eat, and eating way too much sugar, I started talking to God about it…again. Only this time when I was complaining about myself to Him again, I heard something way down deep inside of me, and I decided to really listen.  My conversation kinda went like this…well…. I say kinda, because I can’t promise that I remember everything word-for-word, but I do remember the most important things that were said to me.

First Time Riding Alone

I finally went mountain biking all by myself!  Usually my husband goes with me, but he had to work late and the weather was perfect…so I took a chance and went.  I had such an awesome time!  I went at my own pace, and just truly enjoyed myself.  The only downside to my ride was the fact that I forgot to turn my Strava App on, and I also forgot my polar at home.  It sucks because this time I didn’t take my usual 10-15 min break.  Other than just pulling over to let someone pass or grabbing water,  I didn’t stop for long at all.  I know I probably beat my personal record today.  Oh well!  There’s always next time!

Feeling Awkward

Tonight my husband and I went out to dinner to Olive Garden. The only problem with this is that he had already eaten dinner earlier while I was visiting family. Of course he didn’t really want to eat anything, so he just got a salad and bread sticks. I told him prior that it makes me feel awkward and I was okay just eating at home, Continue reading

Trying To Find Balance

I’m still trying to figure out how to do everything that I feel I need to do, and want to do during this part of my journey in life. Do you ever wonder how everyone seems to have it together, but you? I see people posting on Instagram and Facebook everything they do, and it makes me feel a little frustrated. How do they do it all???? Continue reading

The 21 DSD is Complete

So, I did it!  I completed my 21 Day Sugar Detox last Sunday, January 24th!  Doing this detox was exactly what my body needed.  For the past year I’ve been struggling with lack of sleep, but by the end of the first week, I noticed that I was sleeping more soundly.

Not only was I sleeping better, but I was having the craziest dreams.  Continue reading

Day 13 of My Sugar Detox

This is day 13th of my 21 Day Sugar Detox.

I have to say that it hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be.   During the first few days, I did experience some tiredness and also weakness.  I didn’t realize how weak I was feeling until I took my Les Mills Bodypump class.  After about 10 minutes, I wanted to just lay down and sleep.  My arms felt so weak, and did for a few days after the class.  Once I made
some adjustments that are allowed in the program, I started feeling more energy.   I am doing level one of the sugar detox with the allowed modifications added on days of my workouts.  It’s amazing how adding some sweet potato to your meals and some avocado, give you so much more energy throughout the day!
