Anyone else feels this way? I woke up at 3 am thinking about all the things I have to do before the last day of school. Teacher's gifts, end of year parties, birthday parties, presents, school-wide events, chapels, pick up and drop off never at the usual time and changes every single day......Anyone else relates? #hopeandlaughter #defeatdepression #anxiousfornothing #thefundamentalfive #wearewarriors #morethanconquerors #renewedmind #laughteristhebestmedicine #itsgoingtobemay #endofschool #maycraziness #maymayhem #issummerhere #allthecrazywithoutanyofthepresents #weloveteachers #howdotheydoit #teachersdontgetpaidenough
One thing I've learned over the past several years is how much depression and food go together. If you're like me and have a sugar addiction then you understand how hard it is to break. What I didn't know was how bad sugar is for my mind. I knew it was bad for my body, but I just told myself that I could indulge, because I never wanted to be one of those people, who couldn't enjoy the little things, and obsessed about what they ate constantly. I'm still a firm believer in not depriving yourself, or eliminating anything, but I finally realized that sugar destroys my brain. Sugar cripples my brain from being it's best and if I want to defeat depression than I have to recognize that limiting my sugar is part of that. Even if you follow a paleo, or GF diet, it's still easy to have too much sugar. There's now a GF or paleo version of almost every dessert you can imagine, with tons of sugar, just not white sugar. I've been so excited to embark on this nutritional journey because not only do I want to defeat my sugar addiction, but as much as I don't want to admit it, my weight directly effects my mood and plays into my depression. If I'm healthier, I feel better about myself, more confident, and one more way I'm not susceptible to another round of depression. Does this sound like you? Do you struggle with these same things? I'd love to have you join me on my nutrition journey, no matter where you are at in your journey; There is always room to grow, whether your active or just getting started, eating healthy, but just not moving the scale or love your chocolate just like me. The best part this that the entire family can get involved. My family and I are in this together. No only do I want to eat healthier, take care of my body, but I want to model that for my children and set them up for a win. Who's in this with me? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #glutenfree #paleo #upf #wearewarriors #hopeandlaughter #defeatdepression #wearewarriors #renewedmind #romans122 #breakthepattern #fuelyourmind
To these two little people who made me mama, I am forever grateful. Motherhood, is not at all what I thought....much harder, much more work, but also rewards beyond belief. The journey to becoming a mother isn’t always the easiest, for me it was a miscarriage, for others infertility, adoption. I struggled with postpartum with both, but these two have created so much joy, laughter and let’s face it no one is more honest than your kids. To all the moms out there, pat yourself on the back, and cherish this wonderful journey and all the messiness it brings. It ain’t easy, but boy is it worth it.
