Day #5 of Detox

Today was difficult, not because of this detox but because hubby and older girls are sick and last night just didn’t cut it for me–waking every 1-2 hours was more miserable then ever BUT I pushed through and believe it or not, I chose to workout today! Not in the morning because I could barely … More Day #5 of Detox

Day #4 of Detox

This was the day that was probably the hardest. I just wanted SUGAR! I wanted a yummy homemade raspberry/blueberry filled pancake but had to resist again because of the white flour in them. I also felt like I was running out of food—-which really doesn’t make sense and here’s why… Groceries for the week included … More Day #4 of Detox

Day #3 of Detox

I’m really having a love/hate relationship with this detox! When a meal doesn’t taste amazing, I think this detox is just OK yet when meals taste great, I LOVE this detox! Now, in terms of how I feel, still feeling great and I mean super amazing! Am I tired?! Beyond tired when I think about … More Day #3 of Detox

Day #2 of Detox

I survived day #1!! Woo hoo…it wasn’t easy yet it is definitely doable! Things like eating a can of tuna?

Day #1 of Detox

Good morning all! It is 7:30 am and I am done working out and having breakfast! I need to get a few things off my chest before I talk to you about this new journey I’m trying out. First, I feel like since Madi has come (5 months ago), I’ve been exhausted, have no energy, … More Day #1 of Detox

Tomato Basil Soup

Who knew that homeschooling would take so much time and energy?! But I’m back! And more pumped than before! I’ve been wanting to share our favorite recipes but by the time dinner is cooked and served, I’m WIPED. I don’t want to take pictures or do anything else. I sometimes don’t even want to eat dinner … More Tomato Basil Soup

Our Journey…

Here we are, 7 years later, embarking on a new journey that all began the year economy tanked (2008) and we both graduated from college. I found a teaching job VERY late in the summer and my hubby found different part-time opportunities in his field (Business). That November, we got married and then went on this lovely … More Our Journey…

Starting to blog

I have been journaling for the past 5 years and just recently, through the making of our family video journals (more to come on this), I decided I’d like to start blogging to share my thoughts/resources/ideas/tips. First, I chose to blog for my little girls- Yes, times will change but it is my hope that through these … More Starting to blog
