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: 2.measurementchart 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?

I would love to hear from you...please leave your thoughts.
