Resetting My Body and My Heart

Anybody else surrounded by the massive amounts of laundry to wash, as well as Christmas decorations that still need to be taken down?

No? Just me?

Okay then.

Quite a few of you have asked me what I will be doing for my health and fitness, even though I no longer am partnered with my old company.  I still have health goals, and I still want to eat well, so I thought I would share with you what I will be up to for January.

First up, I will be doing the Whole 30, beginning on Monday, January 8th.


I did the Whole 30 last year, but honestly, I modified it to my liking and still drank my superfood shake with it.  This year, I will be following her rules and allowing the program to do what it says it will do…reboot my body and help me feel better overall by eating real, whole foods. No shakes necessary.

Keep in mind, I am not against shakes. I love them. They are convenient and often a great and easy way to get in those nutrients we tend to need but don’t get enough of. But for the sake of this program, my body wants lots of veggies and lots of proteins and good fats, so that is why I will be doing it her way instead of my way so that my body gets what it wants and craves.

If you are thinking of doing this, I highly recommend going to the site and getting one of the books.  Also, Nom Nom Paleo and The Defined Dish are posting Whole 30 approved recipes for you all month long, so I encourage you to utilize those recipes as well (so you don’t get bored with meals.)


I am doing the Tone It Up Love Your Body Series that also starts on Monday. And guess, what? It is FREE! Holla!

I have been a Nutrition plan TIU Team member since 2011 and these girls are two of my favorite fitness and lifestyle gals on the planet. They are beautiful, inside and out and I just love how much they love their community and really want to empower us women to be strong and healthy.  You can learn all about this series on their blog. Plus, they have really cute workout gear and nutritional products at Target.  Yes, Target!  Go check them out! Will you join me?

Heart Reset:

I think the most important part of our journey will be our heart.  What flows out of it will be revealed, so it is important to set your heart on the truth and then walk in it.

I am following the She Works His Way 2018 Bible Reading Plan (it is free!) and this year, we will be going through the Bible Chronologically.  I have yet to read the Bible in this way, so I am so excited.

I will also be leading a Bible study (more details on that soon!) with some gals and I cannot wait to dig deeper into the Word together as we attend church together and pursue Him even more.

That is all for now!

I will do my best to update you all on my Whole 30 and fitness journey, as well as what God is teaching me as I dig into His word each day.

Would love to hear what you guys want to see on this blog?  What are you interested in learning more about?
