Chocolate Protein Bites

I kicked the sugar habit cold turkey.  The first few days of detox were rough.  Headaches, compulsive thoughts about candy, irritability, and brain-fog were just a few of these symptoms.  I know this is a real thing.  I’ve spoken with so many women who’ve gone through this very process.

I still love chocolate.  However, I know that one bite of sugar: cake, candy, licking the bottom of a brownie bowl (you know you’ve done this too) pushes me into a place that causes me to spiral out of control very quickly.
Enter chocolate protein bites as a simple solution. Delicious, healthy, and easy to make.

Taco Bowls with Cauliflower Rice

I know that “Mexican food” gets a bad wrap as an unhealthy choice that is laden with calories.  But, it does not have to be so, my dear friend.  We can enjoy good food with great flavors that are healthy for our bodies.
Taco Bowls with Cauliflower Rice are an excellent way to use leftovers for a quick weeknight meal with a way to sneak in extra veggies.

Seven At-Home Fitness Challenges for Every Woman

Fitness.  Temple Training.  Self-Discipline.
If those three words bring about fear, loathing, or just an overwhelming “UGH” then this post is for YOU.  Maybe you’re already working on running a Hebrews 12 Race and have created daily goals, but fitness and training your temple is the tough spot.  Sister, I get it.  I KNOW it.  I’ve been there.  For years I struggled with fear, loathing, and overwhelm in so many areas of my life, (read it here) so I DO GET IT.  I hear from a LOT of women who share their hearts with the following reasons fitness is difficult for them so I’m praying the words and tools I give you today help you in this area!

The Blessing of Nothing

Today was one of those moments when I heard God whisper the blessing of NOTHING in my ear. It was 3:25 p.m. after a long day of teaching. He slowly walked through the door to my classroom crying; this tiny six-year-old boy of mine. He had a long, exhausting day too.

Can I be honest? I was immediately frustrated with his tears. All I wanted to do was to finish my grading so we could make the 30-minute commute home. After all dinner and laundry were still waiting for me as well! I didn’t want to be Mom yet. I was still in the “teacher mode” when he arrived so this was not the situation I was hoping for this late fall afternoon.
