Life Update: Where Have I Been & Blog Plans

July 3rd......oh my, where has the time gone! Have I seriously not done a blog post since May 8th? Well let's just back it up to that point and catch ya'll up!

Whole 30 Update:
I'm breaking one of the rules by telling you this but I can NOT lie to ya'll. Whole 30 was HARD! Like, real HARD! So many restrictions and so many rules.

I basically made it to day 13 on the diet. I did EXCELLENT up until that point. Caffeine headaches had gone away and I was getting somewhat of a groove for what I liked and could eat but then something happened. I allowed myself ONE cheat and BAM it was over. I had made this delicious salad and yummy whole 30 approved wings and purchased this SUPER expensive (8 whole bucks!) whole 30 salad dressing. Got good and ready to sit down and eat when I decided to 'TRY' the 8 dollar, non-dairy ranch salad dressing that whole 30 said I can eat and boy was it GROSS! It was awful and I was mad....BIG mad! Mad I spent 8 dollars on trash, mad that I had a new bottle of Hidden Valley ranch in my ridge and couldn't eat it and super MAD that my dinner was now ruined from that awful taste in my mouth.

I quickly began to re-evaluate this tortuous diet I have subjected myself to (I'm dramatic, it wasn't THAT bad LOL). Why? Was this truly necessary? You don't even have food allergies. This is dumb Naja! Put the good ranch on dem damn wings and call it a day girl!

So there it went....my commitment to whole 30 was a wrap. Gone. Done. Finished. I ate my wings in peace with the GOOD ranch and regret not one single part of it. :-)

Let's see what else happened.....

June 5th was my BIRTHDAY!! Woo Hoo!

Excited and Blessed to see another year for sure but with all birthdays, come a time of reflection. Time to reflect on the previous year, where I am with my goals and if my New Years resolutions are on track. Needless to say I have some work to do. I need to step it up in the worst way and step it up I WILL do. Not just with my blog, that part is obvious. Other areas that need some work right now are physically, mentally and spiritually. These things don't just fix themselves, you have to work at it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. It won't be easy and will require a ton of strength, discipline and focus no doubt. But there is no other alternative because being unhappy is a choice that I no longer choose.

So that's it, in a nutshell. Expect new content coming soon, I'll be trying out new things here on the blog so be sure to leave me your feedback and let me know what you're liking along the way. Interacting with you dolls really is the best and feeds my soul more than you know!

Have a happy 4th holiday loves and be safe!
