I’ve fallen and I can get up

I wrote a little bit about this on myย Instagramย the other day.

Since September I’ve gained 12 pounds….

I have been gradually losing for the last two years, and I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out what is going on. Have my eating habits changed drastically, was it the holidays, is it winter, is it water, is it stress, is it….

And you know what, it’s probably all of the above, but it doesn’t matter what it is… What matters is that I do something about it. So I’m putting it out here to all of you that I’m going to fix it. I’m tired of doing this over and over again. It’s time to reboot and refocus. I started the 21 Day Fix again, and that lasted until birthday parties, Chicago and a Super Bowl party….

This is real life, and I need to get back to making better decisions.

One of my favorite food bloggers (Andie Mitchell) has a cookbook called “Eating in the Middle, ” and this is what I strive for, but struggle with EVERY DAY. I don’t like to restrict myself too much, but if I start to let other food back in too much, it becomes a downward spiral. Food addiction is a real thing, and I wrote about itย here.

Soย I’m taking this week in Wyoming to reboot and refocus, so when I get back, get ready because:

Other possible title: Facebook versus Real Life

So let’s start here….

Possible Facebook Status: Great day of horseback riding in the mountains! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’—

Reality: This horseback ride lasted 20 minutes for two of us. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป

Now let’s see if I can do this justice, as it’s all a bit of a blur….

Wyoming Recap! (Part 2)

Continuing on!

After a few days with my Aunt and Uncle, we headed over to Pinedale and stayed at the Rivera Lodge Bed and Breakfast! It was super cute and the kids saw a moose in the kitchen window! The lodge is right in town, but the river runs directly behind it and apparently the moose are frequent visitors on the river path. They also provide a really nice breakfast in the morning ๐Ÿ™‚

Wyoming Recap! (Part 1)

At the end of July, we decided to take a last-minute 10-day trip to Wyoming, and as usual, it was awesome! We took two days to drive out there and two days back (And let me tell you, driving with two kids is no joke. All you parents out there – I finally get it, lol). If you haven’t checked out my last post – you better check out that life update. Anywho, it was great to set our own schedule and make our way out there. It was even more fun to show everyone why I love Wyoming so much and even check out some “new to me places.”

I took so many pictures (no surprise there), we’re going to break this recap into parts!
