So it has been a long time since my last post – closing in on a year now. A lot has changed since July 2016. Well not much in the grand scheme of things, but enough. Here’s the fast track: I gained weight, lost some and gained it back. I joined a gym to start to work on it more seriously. I even started another Whole30. The biggest news is that I finished writing the first draft of my novel (HUGE accomplishment if you know me).

Why am I bringing back the blog? I think its time that I start to take it a bit more seriously. This post is going to be a bit of recap to get me started and then I’m going to start posting at least once a week. Stay tuned for more.

 I’m in the midst of a Whole30, currently on Day 17 and feeling the Tiger Blood. Unlike the last 2 times I did this, I didn’t go through as intense of a sugar withdrawal. The first couple of days were rough, but my body seemed to pick up on what I was doing and go with it. My energy levels are unbelievable. On top of that, I’m going to bed early and getting up on time without the grogginess. 

The other part of my clean eating regime is that I am motivated. Not only did I start blogging again today, but I’ve been working on editing my first draft. And by editing, I mean rewriting it word for word. It probably sounds stupid, but I found the technique on Pinterest and I love it. I’m making deep changes that I didn’t even realize I needed from only doing a read through. I recommend it. 

Well that’s all for today. Thanks for sticking around through my silence. Until next time, here are some photos of my more recent cooking creations. 

Bacon breakfast cups and pulled pork with sweet potato wedges

Hamburger with roasted veggies and a salad (this was actually my mom’s Easter supper)

Chicken with roasted potatoes and mushrooms and a side of spinach
