I decided to not stay on plan during the month of December. I know, I know many people do and it can be done, but I really wanted to enjoy the parties and not have to worry if there was nothing complaint to eat. I guess you could say I was lazy about it. But oh well!
I will tell you that I started feeling blah. I knew that the sugar and carbs I was eating was getting to me. I just didn’t feel well. I have found that it seems to be all or nothing for me. I can’t just have a taste of sugar and be okay. I want more and more and then I keep eating.
Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back into the game.
Today was Day 1 and things went well! I have done this before, I know that I can do it again!
I am not a food blogger.
I am a mom who is super busy. Right now we are in the process of selling our house and moving. (more about that later) I want to encourage other moms that yes, you can do this!
It’s fall and the evenings are cool.
My kids wanted potato soup. Of course I know that I can have potatoes but I add cheese and butter and milk to the potato soup I make. I knew that was a no no. I really wanted soup. So I made something work.
One of the things that I am learning is how to make my own meals with what I have learned while on Whole30. Learning what spices and what veggies go together well.
I usually don’t use a recipe and when I post a picture of my food I am asked how to make it. I am going to do my best for you and share recipes that I come up with if I can remember when I am cooking.
1 TBS Coconut Oil
2-3 cups of Riced Cauliflower
1 Med Onion Diced Small
2 Carrots Diced Small
2 stalks celery Diced small
3 Cloves Garlic Minced
1 tsp salt
1 ½ cups Chicken Broth
2 TBS Curry Powder

It’s time to start over!
It’s been too long. Over the last few years I have lost myself in what everyone else was doing. Trying to keep up with the next big thing. Not a good idea!
I focused too much on others and not enough on me. Not enough on what God has for me.
One night I was talking to my husband. He knows that I enjoy blogging and social media. He has also seen me stop doing what I was doing because I got too caught up in key words and numbers. He asked me what I was passionate about. That question has come up so much in the many conference I have gone to but again I was too caught up.
I went to bed that night and prayed. I needed God’s help Honestly the answer didn’t happen over night. Probably because I was trying to listen for certain words like “you should be passionate about” or “this is what will work”. I laugh now, but then, I was getting even more discouraged. Am I not good at anything?
Then it hit me!
The life that God has blessed me with.
EVERYTHING God has given me!
My life does not look like everyone else’s. That’s okay!
I want to share with you what I am passionate about!
