It’s been a little while since my last post because I’ve been pretty busy! Being busy is good though especially when you can still keep up with your health plan!
Nathan and I just got back this afternoon from a weekend in Kansas! We had a great time visiting Nathan’s grandparents, great aunts and uncles, great grandma, and other extended family! We enjoyed hearing stories, seeing where they grew up, learning more about the family, and just catching up!
Nathan and I love going on vacations and especially roadtrips!

For Nathan and I, staying committed to our eating plan is usually very hard when we’re not at home. We usually come up with excuses for why it’s ok to eat junk food or not make healthy choices. We use the “we’ll start on Monday” mentality on the weekends. That was not the case on this trip!
On this trip, Nathan and I paid attention to what we ate, logged our food on the Lose It app, and made smart choices even when the family went to a buffet!
Our success this weekend was directly related to our support for each other and the support that our family gave us. Our family was mindful of our health goals and they encouraged us to make the healthy choices while we were there.
Living a healthy lifestyle is exactly that: a lifestyle. Without the support of other people in your life, it’s going to be hard to get through each day! I definitely could not have made it through the weekend without slipping up on my eating if it had not been for Nathan and his family!
If you’re on a health journey and you don’t have a support system, please contact me! I want to be there to help just like others are there for me! It’s a step-by-step journey and I’ll walk it with you!
