Three Little Birds...

Today I got the tattoo I've been wanting for a while! Three little birds -- yes, like the Bob Marley song. Specifically, me and Lea's song.

This is the song I'd sing to her when I held her in the NICU, and that I still sing to her now. It reminds me that no matter what, everything will be okay because I have my wonderful little family. The three of us...

It will be my reminder to not worry so much and to not sweat the small stuff. 

I wanted to write more, but as I sit miss muffin is sitting in my lap squeazing my face and trying to type, so I'll let her have her moment:

    njc j vb vvc hb      dg hybnnncccccccssh fyyuyy6rt667777776yuuuuyyyyyuuiiooooooooooooooooooooooooo]]]]]ppp       

Its me again. Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure the above says "I love mommy."  

Until next time...

Isagenix Weight Loss Update

It has been ten weeks since I began using Isagenix products to tackle my weight loss goals, and wanted to give a little update on my results!

Here are the highlights:
  • I have lost a total of fifteen pounds, and my body fat percentage has gone from 23% - 17%. 
  • My energy level has never been higher.
  • I have JUST begun to moderately exercise, but all of the weight loss so far has been strictly from my diet. 
  • Shopping is fun again because clothes look good on me!
  • I feel so accomplished, both physically and mentally.
  • I have not only beaten my addiction to sweets, but also my need for artificial sweeteners.
  • I'm just happier in general!

Never once over the past ten weeks have I felt like I'm on a "diet." This for me has been a lifestyle change. The Isagenix shakes for breakfast and dinner are a no-brainer, and the cleanse days get easier each time I do them. I have also started eating "cleaner," and paying much more attention to food labels and ingredients.

I still cheat here and there. I have a diet coke every once and a while, and desserts aren't totally off limits. I do, however, try to hold out for the desserts that are truly worth the calories.

I am so glad that ten weeks ago I took a risk and decided to give Isagenix a try, despite being very skeptical. Isagenix has changed my life for the better, and I plan to continue to use the shakes as a staple in my diet, and occasionally do more nutritional cleanses.

I also have to update you on my mom who has been sharing this journey with me. She's done even better than me, losing a total of twenty pounds! So proud of you mom, you look amazing. Thanks for always giving me encouragement when I needed it!
