Happy Saturday, y’all! I’m happy to report that I’m feeling almost 100% better this morning… yay me! I’m feeling super pumped this morning, and for good reason. I’m starting my Whole30 tomorrow! That means that today is all about preparation, preparation, preparation.
Mark’s flight left super early this morning, so I was up WAY earlier than usual (hello, 4am!) to say goodbye. He’ll be gone for almost 2 months this time around (sad face). But, as usual, I’m looking on the bright side. I’m taking advantage of his absence to really dive in to this clean eating challenge and create a lifestyle change around the way that I eat.
As I’m writing this it is 7:30am here. I have already completed my Miracle Morning routine and planned my day out in my bullet journal. Most importantly, I cleared out my fridge and pantry of all the things that I will not be eating over the next 30 days. So far, I would call this day an epic success!
As promised, I will be updating you on my progress once a week here on the blog. I’ve decided that the best days for me to post updates will be on Sundays, so stay tuned starting on Sunday, September 20th for my first weekly update.
Ok, now on to what you’re really here for! Grab yourself a cuppa and dive in to my favorite blog posts from this past week… Here we go!

Why am I sharing my tale of epic Monday laziness with you today?

We simply wouldn’t have the energy to. After all, cars don’t run on empty, do they?…
>> Allowing Myself to Feel Good About My Body Image
We all do it. Looking in the mirror at our reflection. Do you pick yourself apart because you don’t look a certain way ? Have parts of yourself that you absolutely hate ? This hate effects your day to day activities because you feel self conscious or worry that you are being judged …
>> How I Quit My Job + Started Doing What I Love
Here’s the deal. Leaving my job, actually leaving my Career in marketing, was a tough decision. I stressed about it for months and months. It wasn’t a decision I took lightly, and I did a lot of work to make sure I had a Plan B, for lack of a better term… and I still made some mistakes …
>> 3 Mindset Shifts for the Back-to-School & Back-to-Work Season
The fall season is full of change for us all—it’s back-to-school season for the young ones in our lives, and it’s back-to-work-as-usual season in workplaces and businesses. It’s easy to get caught up in stress and anxiety as your schedule and to-do lists fill. But I hope the following three mindset shifts help you remember that you’re in charge of how you feel (and what you choose to take on as an “issue”!) …
And that’s a wrap! Now I’m off to a fun-filled day of grocery shopping and meal prep ;)
