What's with the name?

What's with the name? In my mid-twenties, I had essentially gone through one kind of life and am starting to enter another. The people that are probably going to read this blog know exactly what I'm talking about - but for those who don't know, here's a brief rundown . Cheers to Chapter 2! A journey in health in many ways, and to be the best version of myself I can possibly be. I am also a blogger for GreenMommas.com. This is my blog.

Week 2 : 30 Day Photo Food Diary Challenge

I've tried a lot of new things this week. From Quinoa-stuffed peppers, to olives, shredded beets and smoothies with chia - variety seems to be what's keeping me going on this eating plan. And the weird thing is, I don't find myself missing those traditional carbs now (rice, potato). I have sustainable energy without them. The weight loss is also helping me stay committed too! In two weeks, I've lost 10 pounds, which is pretty incredible since I haven't lost anything in the 10 months prior.

This is a re-dedication to myself and nutrition. It reminds me if I want the numbers on the scale to change, I must change what I'm doing too. That said - I don't feel deprived. And I'll admit to having a little wine each night. The smoothies are almost indulgent - my little midday treat.
