Turning 32 - So Thankful

 As I is sit down to write this, thinking about how i am turning 32 , i think about the last 3 years and think about how much my life has changed in what seems took forever at times, really has gone by way too fast. I can't help but tear up at some of the thoughts that go through my head. In the last three years, I can honestly say that I have lost so much, but in return I have gained and been blessed with so much as well.

Since i had my youngest son last May, I have really been focusing on every day and just taking it all in, I am so happy to have been blessed with two amazing boys. Lately, I have not just been functioning or going through motions trying to stay afloat, but I have felt truly whole and happy. I feel like my self again, I know who i am again, what I want, what makes me happy, and it AWESOME!! I love the quote, "I choose to be happy", I really do believe that happiness is a choice, that quote has picked me up from a few bad times. There are always times that you can "choose" to feel depressed or sad, but really if you look around there are so many things that you can "choose" that make you happy. The "choice" is really yours. 

When I look at my boys, especially when they are playing together, laughing together my heart just expands and i have the biggest smile ever on my face!! I love them so much, I love being a mom and I am so thankful for them.

To be honest turning 32 feels amazing!! So much better then turning 30...Have an amazing day!

Project Life Share and Paleo Whole 30 Diet Rant

I am not going to hide it, i need to loose about 15 pounds. I have gotten kind of relaxed with my no carb kick since I stopped breast feeding in November. I have been trying really hard to eat healthy, but to be honest it hasn't worked. One week i tried to eat salads the whole week for lunch and dinner, you think i lost weight? Nope!

I heard about this new way of living called Paleo, I did some research on it and thought, it is basically the same idea as my no carb diet, but the first 30 days you cleanse your body, no sugar, no dairy, no grains, no soy, no processed food. I thought this is great!! However, being a full time working mom of two little boys, i thought this would be kind of difficult with no processed food at all. I thought i would give it a try though. We are trying to clean out our pantry and I think I will start the Whole 30 diet as of next Monday (wish me luck).

If you are familiar with the Whole 30 diet, let me know if you have any suggestions or tips. If you are not familiar with it here is a link and you can read up on it: Whole 30 Diet
