KEEPING MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE along this journey…
You can read a wee bit on WHY I started this journey, here…
But for those who are ALL caught up, let’s move on + dive into the goods, the bads and the ugly!
Focusing on my PLATE instead of calories provided me with such release and energy!
Sleeping more soundly
Gut health is getting back on track
Being more present with Gillies as I’m utilizing my business hours more appropriately (my time is 4am-8am, which I’m able to rise + shine because I’m sleeping better)
Started a self-care routine… hope to keep it going!
Lost 3 pounds this week most likely due to inflammation and stress relief… because we are FINALLY home after an epic family road trip back South to visit family + eating REAL food again!
Improvements could be made: drinking more water throughout the day, for some reason, I slacked twice this week which is unlike me.
My water intake was on point… insert: choir singing in rejoice! With my water intake on point, I felt more energized throughout the week plus I noticed my skin wasn’t dry and itchy!
Gut health was on track, no obvious bloating or cramps noted.
I truly focused on self-care… invested in a good dry brush as well as purchased a few other goodies which you’ll see later (once they have been tested)
We celebrated my late sister’s birthday with chocolate chip cookies and I enjoyed two cookies (twice- hashtag: real life), however, I didn’t feel guilty. I didn’t associate NEGATIVE emotions with eating the cookies. I just ate them joyfully knowing it was a treat and if I wanted more, I could have it. By switching this mindset, I felt more in control with my eating and didn’t feel the need to eat EVERY. SINGLE. COOKIE!
This is absolutely HUGE for me!
Lost 1 pound this week… I would be lying if I didn’t say that I was hoping for more movement; however, it is moving in the RIGHT direction and, well, that’s it.
Well. The whole household got a cause of an “upper respiratory bug” which was no fun; however, this mama was only down for ONE day… when it hit everyone else for 4-5 days!
I focused hard this week on hydration as well as getting good quality sleep which I know helped me kick the cold’s tooshie.
Joined in on a “nutritional webinar” where a medical physician talked about dietary recommendations and lifestyle habits for optimal brain health… and I was super happy to know that what he discussed WE teach in our NO BRAINERS community! I took a few notes on statistics… but this made my heart so HAPPY! Go NO BRAINERS!

The scale didn’t budge at all… which I should be happy about because I know my workouts were not as “intense” this week due to the “COLD OF 2019” which swept through our house.
sounds ominous doesn’t it… the COLD OF 2019! HA! I crack myself up sometimes.
Week of February 10th: YIKES! Before + 1 Month Photos to come soon…
