Kickin' ass, takin' names.

Body appreciation post in Utah.

I’m appreciating my body today bc this shirt has been tucked away since I was at my lowest weight AND IT FITS. sure, it’s a bit more clingy than I want, but it fits.

Also, the temple. Say what you want about Mormons (just don’t say it to me,) but they sure can make some gorgeous architecture.

So excited for this vacation!

When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits - anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.

Can we just go ahead & agree that the world needs more make out seshes?

The answer is yes. Always.

Always be DTMO.

Hi! Hello!

I know I haven’t been around much… I do apologize. I’m currently adjusting to life without an iphone (I’m moving to Android), and it’s been hard. Work has also been rEdonkulous. Eating has been okay. Weigh in today was GREAT! Here are some additional items via bullets:

  • my mom is in town and it’s so great. we’re planning our italy trip, and talking, and taking it easy. ugh i have missed her.
  • i’m down 2.2lbs this week - even though I’m on my period AND ate at Cheesecake Factory last night. #weightwatchers #winning
  • i haven’t worked out much this week, and i’m bummed about it but recognize that life goes on. traffic has been atrocious, and i’ve been trying to get my steps in.
  • it’s the WEEEEEKEND!

Hope you’re all doing great! I’ve been trying to stay up to speed, but will try and catch up. :)

Ça c’est très bien!

I made my 4th skinnytaste recipe of the week tonight, after indulging on Chinese food for lunch.

Chicken cordon bleu with a veggie salad and some cherries. I was nervous because I used whole wheat flour instead of bread crumbs, but it turned out super good!

With that, I am at my point limit which is awesome because it means a) I didn’t go over, and b) I’m fully satisfied so I don’t want anything else.

Trevor and I are off to a stand-up comedian tonight, and tomorrow my momma comes! Summer is the best!

Huh who would’ve thunk?

Since joining WW two weeks ago, I am down almost 5 pounds.

Who would’ve thunk eating better and moving more would lead to weight loss?

Now to keep up this momentum!

I turned down Waffle House for dinner.

Am I skinny yet?

I’m going to Italy!!

Thanks to skymiles (and my awesome husband…and his skymiles), MY MOM AND I ARE SPENDING 8 DAYS IN ITALY IN APRIL!

I’m so excited - this has been on her bucket list for 40 years, and well, I haven’t seen Italy in 7 years. It’s about time for another trip. I can’t wait to reacquaint myself with the Italian way of life. Now to get my body ready for the ridiculous amounts of walking we’ll be doing… :)

I am on a cooking ROLL!

Tonight I made Chicken Francese (from Skinnytaste, yep) and it was so gooood. I also made a pasta dish with whole wheat pasta, squash, peppers and onions. Such a good dinner and easy to prepare.

I feel so healthy and alive today, and super super grateful for friends near (and far) that are encouraging me to be the best version of myself (even when I don’t want to be). :)
