Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

There are many special memories I can share about my Nana. She was funny, brutally honest and had the most beautiful smile. And while I can go on and on about her to anyone that will listen (or read), I love to cook her favorite dishes so that my family remembers her through her recipes. Today, since it’s Yom Kippur, I want to share one of my favorite recipes, Nana’s Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Homemade Gravy. Head to the blog for the full recipe. .

AD: Our schedules just got a little bit busier. The girls have started taking music lessons! Falynn and Lucia are learning to play the ukele and Iyla is learning to play the piano. While they are loving every second of it, they get hungry. I always have to make sure they grab some water and a snack. Or in Falynn's case, lots of snacks. This week, she found my stash of @JackLinksJerky in the pantry and decided one wasn't enough. Good thing Jack Link’s Beef Bars now comes in a multi-pack! You can find them in the nutritional bar aisle at @Target. The Bars are made with 100% Beef. 8 grams of protein, 70 calories, and gluten free. I'd say she made a great choice! Have you tried the new Jack Link's beef bars? .

Today is National Taco Day, so we've decided to share one of our favorite taco recipes. Technically, it's not a taco, it's a tostada, but it's just as delicious whether it's in a folded tortilla shell or on top of a flat corn tostada. Lime and cilantro shrimp with a zesty sauce will wow your tastebuds and will be a huge hit with your family! I’m sharing the full recipe on the blog today. Go print it and make it for dinner.

Raising three girls is tough. They each have their own very different personalities. They don’t get along all the time. They seem to be in competition constantly. I can’t give a compliment to one without the other thinking that my compliment to one, meant I was insulting the other. And while I’m working on teaching them how to handle those situations, I can’t help but think that our female minds are wired that way and it saddens me. We are stronger when we support and encourage one another. So to all those girls out there who are busting their butts to make it, in a world where people are just waiting for you to make one wrong move so they can discard you, keep your head up. Find the people that will have your back no matter what. Surround yourself with others that care more about facts than gossip. And when you do find them, hold onto them, cherish them and have their back in every situation. Together, we can change the world. That’s the power when girls support girls. Have you found your tribe? Tag them and let them know what they mean to you. .

It’s hard to believe that February has come to an end and I’m 2 months into my new, healthier lifestyle.  I can’t say that this month has been easy. In fact, it was probably more difficult than I’d ever imagined.  If I’m being completely honest, my month was full of setbacks and disappointments.

Typically, when I start a diet, the 2nd month is usually the month that I give up; however, I haven’t and I’m not planning on it.  Instead, I’m going to use my failures to motivate me to keep going and to prove to myself that I can do this.

5 Changes in February:

  1. The Scale: I started off by weighing myself every morning. I was finding that my weight fluctuated so much, I was getting discouraged.  I found that on the days I would eat poorly, I would lose weight and the days that I would eat well and walked 3 miles, I would gain weight.  I have since decided to only weigh myself once a week and live by the “no news is good news” motto.
  2. Tracking Our Activity: My hubby and I received vivoactive 3 activity trackers from Garmin (stay tuned for our next blog post).  I’m finding that it’s really pushing me to reach my goals everyday.  It tracks not only our steps, but our stress level, our heart rate and more.  It’s an added accountability tool that I love.
  3. Period: One thing I learned in February was that vegan and vegetarians have irregular periods (at least at first).  Who knew that what we eat can affect our menstrual cycle.  It’s actually thrown me off completely.  I’m finding that I’m 1-2 weeks late, my periods aren’t as long as they used to be and I feel totally different before and during.
  4. Allowing Myself to Cheat: At first, I was very careful about what I ate, but then I realized that stopping myself from having dessert every now and then was actually hurting me.  In the past, if I deprived myself, I would binge at some point. So now, if I want a piece of chocolate or a cookie, I eat one.  I realized that it’s ok, as long as I don’t go overboard.  It makes me feel less like I’m being punished and more like I’m just eating better, with an occasional treat.
  5. Maintaining My Weight: While I didn’t lose any weight this month, I am also not gaining weight, which is good.  As my body adjusts to the changes, I hope the weight will eventually come off.

I appreciate you following my journey to a healthier lifestyle.   If you have any tips, I’d love to hear them in the comments below!

    I really like the idea of not weighing yourself daily. Although it’s a tough one to follow and one I currently cannot. I’m also trying to make some healthy changes and wish my body would get aligned with my goals faster! Keep it up.

    Sounds like you’re doing amazing! I hope you continue on with your lifestyle. The weight eventually comes off too, so long as you don’t stray away from your activities and your diet.

    Setbacks seem like they are always inevitable. Congrats on maintaining your weight! That can be hard to do.

    I do think we have to allow ourselves to “cheat” although I do not consider it cheating really. It is good to allow ourselves indulgences with food or as you discovered we overdo it when we feel it is wrong. Congratulations on committing to a healthier lifestyle. It is about lifestyle and not a “diet”. I try to eat what is as natural as possible. Less foods that are prepared and more that can be consumed in their natural states such as fruits veggies and nuts.

    I say if you feel healthier and you aren’t gaining weight, then you are doing good. Keep it up and try not to get discouraged. I agree only weigh yourself once a week and in the morning not in the evening.

    I know so many people who are trying to adopt healthier means of living/eating and when they restrict TOO MUCH… They rebel and revert back to their own ways! Restriction is not always the right approach!

    Awesome for you that you made it the second month into your diet! I’m glad that you’re staying the course, and taking what you’ve learned from your last attempts at dieting. We all have setbacks; it’s how we respond to them is what makes up our character!

    This is the month I get serious about dropping a few pounds. I usually try tanning some to help motivate me for shorts! Great tips, thanks!!

    Ugh! I know how you feel about the scale! I’ve noticed that even if I don’t lose a significant amount of weight from week to week, if my clothes are fitting better, then I don’t get too concerned. Kudos to you for keeping on task with your diet!

  • Stacie

    I’m glad you figured out that cheating isn’t always bad! I used to stress out to the point of thinking my hair was going to fall out. Then I realized that every once in a while, a little cheat can help you maintain your sanity.
