Arts, crafts and everything in beteen: 2017 Advocare challege

      First I would love to thank my coach Lisa and the rest of my teammates. I wish you all well and you got this. You guys rock and thank you for your support. Second thing that I would like to say that each coach has their own way of coaching so when doubt ask them. Third thing read the labels, just in case you cannot take of the products and make adjustments to your plans for a successful journey.

      It has been a year and I am happy to report that I have kept 40 pounds off since I have started this journey. A lot has changed and sometimes old habits have been hard to change like not eating breakfast or trying to sticking with eating every two hours. What has stayed the same is that I try to keep my carbs and sugar as low as I can. I try to cook more, a little soda ever now and then. These small changes have been huge and I believe has helped me keep the weight off.
      I would love share some photos of what I have been eating during the challenge eating during the challenge. I hope that this inspires you to give it a try, for anyone that is on this challenge, good luck, and congratulations.

This would make a good breakfast or lunch, but you make to add another or at least 10 nuts.

A great dinner. You could always add a little more to jazz it up but not to much.

Example of a bad snack, I needed 1o less nuts.
Breakfast  should have been half  a banana other half for snack another egg or 10 nuts.

     So that is what  been up to so far. I'll share a post of  more examples later on during the week so please stop when you have time. I also would love to thank David my amazing husband who has supported me though this whole journey. He is my workout coach and my everything. Thank you so much my love. I know it is early but happy anniversary. Well that is it for today everyone thank you for stopping by and that you enjoyed today's. If you have an comments or questions please leave them down below or you can email me at bye for now Eileen the little crafter.

A new path.

I believed that when I started the down this road for better health that it so at the time what was best for me and for a time that it worked. The only problem was that I realized that my journey wasn’t just about my physical health it was about my mental health as well. I would not trade anything in for the help, the love and support that I got during my challenges. So thank you, everyone, for that.

     I am not a hundred percent where this new path is taking me, but I am feeling a lot more confident and focusing more on my inner self. I feel like I have made a significant improvement in my sessions. I do know that some months, weeks or even days are going to be better than others. I am learning to ride the waves, enjoy the journey and stop beating myself up. It started with looking at things that I wanted to change so clothing and makeup have played a massive part in this new mind swift.

     I know that some will say that those are just temporary fixes and your right. I …

While at the beach.

Yes, I am a plus size women at the beach. Yes, I am wearing a two-piece swimsuit to the beach. Yes, I am having a bit of trouble with my top, that I had to readjust it a few times, it is the beach, and these things happen.  So it the couple that kept looking at me that was very rude so much so that I smiled in your face. To older people made feel out of place, again I laughed and kept looking around the beach is so beautiful to look at.
    It is the beach for crying out loud, I won't stop going, stop smiling or wearing my swimsuit. It is brand new. I got it from torrid. Maybe a bigger size may have helped, but summer is almost over.  I know that I don’t have to explain where I go my suit at, getting a bigger size or even that summer is almost over. Maybe to help someone find a great swimsuit for next summer, avoid sizing issues and I don’t want summer to end.

       I have stuff like this happen to me all the time, with all my clothes. Doesn’t matter about the fit or the col…

Working out because you love your body.

Before I start this post would love to thank everyone that has been stopping by to read and give me your input on the blog post. So thank you for my Dia friends and sisters. You all are amazing.

   I am not a doctor, coach or worked for the health department in any way. I do highly suggest that you see your doctor before working out. Take it slow,  it is not about always about losing weight it. It about building your inner and outer strength.  You also may feel some stress relief as well and can improve in a lot of other areas of your life.

     Something that read which really blew my mind,  workout because you love your body. This has helped me a lot in finally enjoying the journey. I trying not bet myself if I miss a day and listen to my collection. I have been trying to not go by the numbers on the scale but how my clothes are fitting, and that has made me a lot happier.  I have also been doing a ketosis ish) diet, working out a few days, dance class once in a while.
