Whole30 Day 30

It feels as though I've lost a little bit of my momentum. I didn't take any pictures today food was simply because I was unmotivated and didn't really feel like eating healthy. 

Of course it did it anyway, but the feeling to eat badly was definitely hard to escape. I was more tempted today than I have been in a while. I wanted to eat everything! 

I actually picked up a donut and threw it back down before realizing what I was doing. This is kind of thing that I didn't expect to be struggling with after 30 days of Whole30. While my skin, hair and energy levels are better. I do think that I have to continue this life style to really read and see apparent benefits. I don't know if I've lost weight because I decided to add an extra week to my Whole30 program. While today would have been my last day I actually have another seven days to go. It's going to be really hard. 

I feel if I can get through the next 7 days & be Paleo that I will see success in improving my health. I do look forward to  Paleo 90/10 approach. One thing with paleo that I am not going to honor is the lack of potatoes. I enjoy them so much in my regular diet right now that I don't want to get rid of them. I do also think that I will allow myself to have honey in my coffee and the occasional glass of wine. Other than that I plan on sticking to paleo. Yep. I'm struggling today.

Wish me luck. 

7 days to go.

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
