Thoughts & Updates

I hope you're having an awesome day!! It's such a beautiful day here (again) I am so excited. I have lots of errands to do today, so the sun shining always helps!  I am hoping to find some tasty treats at Trader Joe's and stocking up on some essentials at Wegmans.  It will be the first time little miss Brooke will ride in the big girl part of the cart--wish us luck!!  

24 Day Challenge Update:
I'm on day 20 and I still cannot believe how amazing I feel, how many awesome people are here to support me, and what a difference 20 days has made.  I know that I will continue using the products to further my results, but I can't complain.  I am so happy where I'm at and I know I'll just keep getting better!! This cute workout top [from Target] is a medium.  I haven't worn it since I bought it over a month ago, because I felt uncomfortable in it.  Now?  I have some room to spare!!  And a medium pair of running shorts now fit, my larges are big.  WINNING!!


Down 8 lbs and roughly 11 inches.  That's a whole dress size!!

I'll admit too, I'm not a crazy workout person.  I love to walk, do Yoga, Zumba once in awhile, but eating clean & these products have really changed my life.  You don't have to kill yourself in a gym, to feel better. I promise!!

My mama is also on the challenge and one of my favorite texts was this last week:

See? It's not just about the numbers on the scale or how the clothes fit, it helps us feel better overall!  I couldn't ask for more.  Thank you so much AdvoCare!!  I'm also proud to say that I can go 20 days without coffee, as I know it's a slight addiction that I have.  Spark has done its job [and then some!]  I love it so much, be on the lookout for a giveaway soon!!

It's all about believing and achieving.

I am still trying to be creative in the kitchen.  Joe needs his carbs, and I need my veggies.  I went a little West Coast with our lunch yesterday--

Turkey bacon, spinach, whole wheat pita.  Instead of mayo, I mashed up an avocado and threw in a hard boiled egg for a little more protein. 

Monday- Crockpot Artichoke/Spinach Chicken {I had over broccoli, Joe ate w/ Orzo}
Tuesday- Italian Marinated Venison Steaks on the grill
Wednesday- Grilled Shrimp
Thursday- Turkey Loaf
Friday- Visiting my friend for the weekend!! Hubs, you're on your own!! :)

And of course, baby toes are delicious...

Have a fabulous day!


  1. Your results are so inspiring! I might have to save up my money to try this 24 day challenge! Seems like excellent results. Baby toes? yummy! haha

  2. You look amazing!! I'm so unhealthy it's ridiculous. Everyone says.. "ohh..your so skinny, you don't need to lose weight" Being skinny and being healthy are two entirely different things! I'm going to try the T25 workout and see how that works for me. Keep posting those yummy recipes and progress updates. LOVE them!

  3. You girlfriend are ROCKING this! I am so so proud of you! Love how Brooke is eating her toes! Adorable!

  4. Congrats!! You do look fabulous. I'm still trying to work on my baby belly after 2 yrs!!! I get motivated and then I loose motivation. Thankfully my boyfriend is a GYM Junkie so he's my new personal trainer. LOL

  5. You rock mama!!! You look amazing! You should be very proud - good on ya!

  6. You are doing such a great job! You look fabulous!

  7. You're looking amazing, woman! Not to mention the fact that we have the same shorts :)

  8. You are rockin it! So proud! And so is your mom!!

    I wanna come to your house...that California BLT looks DELISH! Thank you for sharing! Yum

  9. 11 inches! That is amazing! I love the menu too. Totally going to use that one. I hate meal planning and that menu sounds, and looks awesome! Using broccoli for the base instead of orzo or rice is brilliant!! SO many saved calories that won't even be noticed! Great post. Keep up the good work.

  10. You are always such a motivation!! You are rockin' it and reminding me to make healthier choices this week! :)

  11. i can't wait to start! 11" is awesome! and that pic of Brooke is too funny! yum toes..

  12. You are SO AWESOME!! And I'm so jealous, how I WISH we had a Trader Joe's!
    There's nothing better than baby toes ;)
