Hi Everyone! It’s been a while but I’m still here. While I am always committed to healthy living and eating clean I found the summer to be a difficult time to shed any extra pounds. Between having all four kids home for some family fun time and hurting my leg and ankle the summer was about maintenance for me. Which is exactly what I did. I maintained my weight (from the point where I had gained some weight back) and felt great. Since the kids headed back to school I’ve been able to institute the 3 R’s, re-evaluate, re-focus, and re-commit with NO EXCUSES. I’m happy to report that over the last two weeks I’ve lost 6 pounds and some inches! I am down a total of 12 pounds and 4.25 inches around my waist since we began this journey! Here are the details: The last couple of weeks have been ALL clean eating, there has been no exercise due to my leg and ankle and there probably won’t be any for the next couple of weeks. But this just shows how much of an impact eating clean can have on our lives!
I’ve also started adding links to recipes that I love on my site: check them out, I’ll be updating it often! Note that I often don’t follow recipes exactly so I’m going to gradually update the links to my take on them. I’ll be posting them on the blog so you won’t miss them. I hope this will help you find some new and healthy meals for you and your family. If you have any recipes you’d like me to add send them my way.
I have 8 more pounds to go – I’M BACK! And excited! How about you?

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
