Don’t Miss Out On The Most Nutrient Dense Meal of the Day!

Don’t Miss Out On The Most Nutrient Dense Meal of the Day!

I'm a busy mom, just like you, and getting time to eat anything, let alone a nutrient dense meal, is pretty difficult. I used to find myself running around during meal times and shoving bites of this, that, and the other thing in between feeding the kids and cleaning up after them. Those meals never satisfied me, and I would end up "fueling my body" with leftover mac & cheese and animal crackers. No wonder I was so tired! Shakeology has changed all that. Shakeology is my daily dose of dense nutrition which means packed full of whole foods, fruits, veggies,…read more >

3 Reasons Why Jesus Wants You To Stop Dieting

3 Reasons Why Jesus Wants You To Stop Dieting

We often think because God has given us our bodies, that we need to "diet" in order to take care of them, but let me tell you why Jesus wants you to stop dieting. Our bodies are amazing creations. God designs each and every one of us differently with our own DNA, including our own metabolism, healthy weight and shape, and our own individual features and looks. Our bodies serve us as we serve Him, providing hands to clean, arms to hug, legs to walk alongside, shoulders to bear burdens. We need to care for the amazing creation and glorious…read more >
Feel Like Quitting? Ask THIS Question First.

Feel Like Quitting? Ask THIS Question First.

The stars have finally aligned. We start a new workout program, rejoin the gym, attend a new class, invest in ourselves, and get all excited about it. After all, the timing is perfect. The excitement builds and we adhere to the "plan" for a week straight and we feel amazing. We can't believe it's taken us this long to start. I mean, who would want to replace this on-top-of-the-world feeling with anything that might stand in our way?   But then a kid gets sick and we miss a workout. The husband goes out of town and we start eating…read more >

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love the fall.  The crisp weather. The warm colors. The scarves and boots. And all things pumpkin. Of course, I'm obsessed with pumpkin pie smoothies. I love every pumpkin dessert and dish imaginable. Cookies, cakes, pies, squares, oatmeal, spreads, dips, you name it.

I used to fear my future.

I used to fear my future.

I was afraid that our family was going to fall apart. I was afraid that debt would swallow us whole. I was afraid that I was in an emotional pit that I couldn't conquer. I was afraid that I couldn't be the mom my kids deserve. At the very bottom of those fears, there was this unsettling, nagging notion that I was not living up to the potential God had given me. In a desperate moment of prayer, God told me that if I would take care of myself, He would take care of the rest. So in the midst…read more >

Hi, Pretty. Are You Plugged In?
