|There’s my Dad and our CEO, Brad Devries. Two outstanding men and leaders!|
As for me, I was proud to become a new member of Semonin’s 20% club! I have big goals for 2017 and a big thanks for all the love and support from my fabulous clients who have become friends. BTW- I LOVE working with referrals… 😉
I’m not sure if this exactly qualifies for a favorite, as I have yet to actually read the book, but I read a raving review on the book Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat Pray Love) and then ordered it yesterday. I’ve talked before about the grip that fear can have over my life and I’m just excited to dive right in.
Please excuse the actual paint job… but a color that I forgot I had – kind of a soft purpley/light grey neutral color. Love the name of this one.. OPI’s “Don’t Bossa Me Around”
Nail color here
On Tuesday, I jumped on the Whole30 bandwagon and so far, so good! If you missed that post, you can catch up here.
On the Whole 30, you cut out added sugar, grains, legumes, dairy, processed foods and alcohol. So Whole 30 is basically eating clean. I’m learning that its really do able (if I can do this anyone can) but does require careful meal planning. I purchased Luna Bars for emergency situations and I’m still craving things like chips and goldfish and whatever the girls eat as snacks after school, but I really haven’t felt hungry. I’m already feeling less bloated and “lighter.” I feel more tired than usual and I’ve woken up with headaches but I think its normal and from the detox. Whole30 strongly discourages weighing yourself but that ain’ttttt happenin. I did take a “before” picture and if there’s significant results, I may get brave and post the pics. I know its only Day 4 but I’m feeling really good about things!
I’ll update more next week, but here’s a few pics of what I’ve been eating on the Whole30…
Scrambled eggs and veggies made with avocado oil and spices and….
… these sauces below are Whole 30 approved! My cousin is the creator and are available on Amazon here. They are soooooooooo yummy.
I was nervous about using coconut milk in place of creamer in my coffee but it actually tastes good!
La Croix sparkling waters are Whole30 approved. So good…
Grilled chicken with dijon mustard, steamed cauliflower with salt and pepper and fruit for lunch…
I’ve been drinking tons of water too. This is infused with fruit.
