Food Prep

I have started the 21 day fix! For those of you that don’t know what that is, the 21 day fix is an eating and exercise program you follow for 21 days to make a healthy habit!
You get colored containers for each food group and based on your calorie allowance that determines how many of each color you get. It also comes with a booklet of food ideas, recipes, etc. You also get 2 DVD ‘ s with 7 workouts on it, 1 for each day!


What comes with your 21 day fix kit

Let me tell you….. it is super simple, but breaking those bad eating and not working out habits are hard! I used to be in amazing shape, but I ate whatever I want! Changing your eating takes time and persistence.
So yesterday I spent my day off in the kitchen! What!? I spent it in the kitchen? Yes I did! I chopped, cleaned, cooked, and portioned for the next 3 days at school!

My plan was cous cous and veggies at lunch with my chocolate shakeology!
Cucumbers, celery, and grapes throughout the day!
These amazing pumpkin protein donuts for breakfast (I found on this amazing woman’s blog!)

It’s tough, but I am determined to make this lifestyle switch!
I have a dress fitting in December that I need to look stunning for!

Try meal prepping to save time, and the urge to eat bad foods!



Live your journey,


Snow is here!

Well I have played in snow for the first time and I loved it! It is a new experience to get ready for the cold before I leave for work! Warming up my car, layering up, and putting on SNOW boots! It’s a whole new story with my kiddos at school! We have to take all our gear off in the morning, and put it all on in the afternoon! New experience, but it’s so much fun!
Ginger (my fur child) just loves the snow! She has a jacket, and when that goes on she knows it’s time to play! She loves chasing snow balls and bouncing around like a little kangaroo! She is having so much fun!
Here are a few pics from our snow fun!



You don’t get to see this in south Texas, like ever! So pretty and peaceful looking!
Hope everyone has a great day and if you have snow already take the time to go play in it!
Your fellow journier,

New move, new start!

Well, in July my fiancé and I moved to Montana from Texas. It was a huge change and we are still getting used to it. My fiancé, Daniel, took a new job, and it moved us to Montana. I am a definite city girl from the south, trying to make it work, in a small town up north. I have decided to make the most of the move, and live my journey one day at a time while trying to figure it all out.

I’m a 3rd grade teacher, wannabe fitness buff, yoga teacher, essential oil fanatic, dog mom!

Join me in living and loving my journey!
