We talked last week about God providing all of our needs. So, this week, I felt it was an appropriate segway to touch on His “requirements” for us. I don’t ever want Grace to think that she is “owed” anything, and I honestly believe that God teaches us that throughout the Bible. He asks us to have a response to Him, and through our response, He blesses us.
Every once in a while I just really want a little comfort food but don’t want to sacrifice all of my hard work and progress to get it. On days like those, these 3-Ingredient Flourless Pancakes are perfect. They’re a great breakfast item, but because they’re full of protein I also sometimes even enjoy them for lunch (or dinner)! Plus, when they’re ready in just a couple of minutes, it makes it so much easier than other alternatives. Continue reading
One of the elements that is always a component of my challenge groups is meal planning, and every single time I am so surprised at how many women tell me that they have never tried or don’t really know how to create a meal plan. We’ve honestly been doing it since we first got married although then it was primarily focused on saving as much money as we could rather than keeping things healthy.

That understanding of His provision is something that I also want to start cultivating in Grace right now. So, I decided there was no better verse than this one found in Philippians 4:19 to focus on this week, Continue reading
I previously shared my progress with the 21 Day Fix, but since then I have done any real progress updates. So, I decided it was about time I did. Following the 21 Day Fix, I actually did a few rounds of 21 Day Fix Extreme, and let me tell you when they say “Extreme,” they mean it. Haha. But, that’s actually not the most recent program I’ve been following.
A little over a month ago I decided I wanted to do something hard. I wanted to challenge myself and prove to myself that I could step outside of my comfort zone and really go for it. So, I decided to take on a program that I wasn’t “sure” that I could do. I invested in Insanity Max:30, and warily I got started. Haha. Continue reading
