My Amateur Guide to “Dirty” Intermittent Fasting

Hey sisters! I get asked all the time online if I can help women explain more about Intermittent Fasting and what I did to lose the weight in my ROUND 1 of I.F.

HARD NEWS : HARD CHANGES

Hello dear sisters. WHAT A WEEK. This is an understatement honestly. We got news on Thursday that Kaydi has a rare tooth condition that is going to require oral surgery. Yes, my same little girl who recently had her 5th leg/hip surgery. We got the news from her dentist and my baby immediately said: “I’mContinue reading “HARD NEWS : HARD CHANGES”

MY THOUGHTS ON “THE 75 HARD CHALLENGE” AND INTERMITTENT FASTING

Hello ladies. This is my official week 18 update. If you remember in last Thursday’s post, I shared how I was taking a break from Intermittent Fasting (after doing it for 17 weeks) because I didn’t want to be doing it while on our vacation coming up….well, BIG MISTAKE. One week off I.F. and IContinue reading “MY THOUGHTS ON “THE 75 HARD CHALLENGE” AND INTERMITTENT FASTING”

WEEK 15: “NO OFFENSE MOMMY BUT…”

My 11 year old was looking at photos with me as I was creating my new side by side image and she said: “Mommy, no offense but you were really large!” No offense taken baby. I was larger than she had ever seen or known me. I was knocking on 300 lbs. at 5’4, whichContinue reading “WEEK 15: “NO OFFENSE MOMMY BUT…””

week 14: BE THE TURTLE, NOT THE BUNNY.

Another week and no weight loss. No weight gain but no loss. I was so frustrated at first but I decided not to let it get to me. My accountability partner reminded me that I am not a microwave but an oven. “All good things cook better in the oven.” Something like that, lol. ButContinue reading “week 14: BE THE TURTLE, NOT THE BUNNY.”

WEEK 13: THE HARDEST WEEK YET

Is there something about the number 13 that’s cursed? You know, Friday the 13th style because my week 13 in this journey was the WORST week yet. Don’t worry, I’m not actually superstitious. 😉 But let me walk you through this past week. Well actually it was this past weekend. I was DM’d by aContinue reading “WEEK 13: THE HARDEST WEEK YET”

week 12: THE VICTORY OF SELF-CONTROL

Well, to say I was spoiled this Mother’s Day would be an understatement. Honestly, I was nervous because I wanted to enjoy the Holiday but didn’t want to go over board and binge. I am very pleased to report that I practiced self-control. All glory to God. 12 weeks in – going into week 13Continue reading “week 12: THE VICTORY OF SELF-CONTROL”
