So you just got engaged! That’s awesome. I am super excited for you!! If you are like so many other women out there, you want to look your absolute best for your soon-to-be husband on your big day. But it should not just be for your big day. It should be for the rest of your life, since you plan on spending it with the love of your life.
I think one of the hardest things for me to hear is “I’ll just starve myself” when they are trying to lose weight. I get it. Mostly it is in jest. But sometimes, it isn’t. That’s what worries me. I am here to help each and every one of you move away from that mindset and get healthy just like me.
I don’t claim to know everything. In fact, I am far from that. But I have learned a few things since I joined a challenge group at the beginning of the year and started doing P90X. Along with the workout plan, I have also really changed my viewpoint on food and eating. Since I usually give up something for Lent, I decided to start eating clean, which basically means cutting out the processed foods, sugars, fats, etc. Essentially, if it is man-made and/or you cannot pronounce the ingredients listed, it probably isn’t clean. I wrote a Friday Finds post about a blog that I started following, The Gracious Pantry. There are honestly so many recipes on there and each and every one is amazing. At least the ones I have tried so far. So this morning, while talking to our support group coach, I decided that I should really share this knowledge with all of you. Maybe you can join me in my journey to get healthy for my husband, for our future children and mostly for myself.
I am going to make a new, clean recipe and share my experience with you. I will post the actual recipe along with photos as I go (I’ll most likely use my iPhone and Instagram to capture this process, so I don’t guarantee professional grade). The first one I am making is Parmesan Chicken. I’ll be making this tonight, so hopefully you will see the post soon! I’ll probably also be including some workout tips too.
So stay tuned and we’ll get fit together!!! And because every post is better with a photo and some humor…
