I just started doing this healthy eating program called #Whole30 where you stay off from dairy, soy, sugar, and grains and it's been so hard to eat out!!! I don't think I'll be able to do it for the entire 30 days but I just found a really good restaurant here in NY that has a lot of options so this big eater is happy! Has anyone done the Whole 30? Any tips? I need carrrrrrrbs.

How many times have you given up when the going gets tough?
We expect this perfectly linear path to progress, and when challenges get in the way, instead of riding them out, we throw in the towel and revert to old (and poor) habits! As you can see from these photos, my journey has not been free of challenges. What if I would've thrown in the towel when I was diagnosed with Hashimotos? I had gained all the weight back I had lost the year before. I had enough excuses to "justify" quitting.
What if I decided to sit on my couch feeling sorry for myself after rupturing my ACL? Face first into a vat of ice cream would've been understandable.
Has it been easy? NO! But feeling miserable about yourself, tired, sluggish and depressed isn't the easier route either.
Pick your "hard".
I'll take the path that keeps me thriving and firing on all cylinders! So please.....don't give up when the going gets tough. It's then, more than ever, that your body NEEDS for you to fuel it well so you can tackle whatever mountain you must climb!
Edited: many people are asking what my current workouts are like. I am still in physical therapy for the ACL reconstruction. I am only doing that 2-3 times per week and 1-2 days of short yoga work at home. That's it.

Have you made the latest recipe on my blog and app, Paleo Hiyashj Chuka (Cold "Ramen" Salad)? I just showed folks how to make it on Facebook Live from my home kitchen! Click on the link for the recipe - the replay of my FB Live is at the end of the post! http://nom.gy/NNPColdRamen #nomnompaleo #whole30

Got home from work last night and all I could think about was making my babe @rachlmansfield's paleo blueberry banana bread 🍌 It took me under 10 minutes to whip together (not including baking time) and it turned out 💯 and not too sweet. The only modification to her recipe is that I used @nutiva MCT oil instead of coconut oil. And of course I topped mine with almond butter because I can't live life without it. The rest of the loaf is currently in my toddler's belly 🤣 happy Thursday you guys!!!! Xx

Cheers to my sweet baby Ketones!🍹
Aren't they pretty?! 😍 #boomerang

We look at ourselves everyday in the mirror. After 20+ years... we start to look ''boring'' to ourselves. We notice every little flaw, scar or line that we have. We never look at ourselves from another person's eye. You are beautiful just the way you are. Tag someone who needs to hear this.

I hope everyone is having a great and productive week! Don't forget to place and complete your orders by midnight tonight to get some food from next week's menu!

This was my third full #whole30 and it was definitely the easiest one yet. My first Whole30 four years ago helped me identify gluten as a cause of inflammation and soy as a problem for my stomach. This time around I was trying to detox my system of sugar and processed foods.
After four REALLY bad months I had gained 20 pounds due to a combination of stress eating, medication, and lack of movement. This whole30 was meant to get me back in control. I Lost 6.7 pounds.
I'm not going to lie, I was hoping to lose more than that. I counted #weightwatchers points every day, and I'm continuing with that. The challenge will be the next four weeks--preparing for and starting the school year. I need a game plan, rules to live by. I know people love the idea of eating whatever they want as long as they track the points--that gets me in trouble. I know other people love eating paleo and not counting or measuring--I can't do that either. My health depends on getting the weight off, so I have to figure out what works, and stick with it.

On the days when I don't want to work out or eat healthy, I remind myself if I quit now I will soon be to where I started and when I started, I was desperate to get where I am now. Choosing to change your life is HARD but you have to make HARD choices if you want to see results. I didn't see results overnight or in a week but a little progress each day added up to big results in the end. Over time I saw my body changing, my mind changing and the life choices I made every day changing!
No more excuses! I had to stop living someone else's life, thinking that the same things that applied to others would work for me. No more Chinese food every Friday night, no more ordering pizza when I was too lazy to cook. Now I mealprep like a boss and always have something healthy on hand to eat. I still have my Chinese & pizza every once in awhile but usually I choose the healthy option because I like the way it makes me feel and look!
Do you look around and wonder how you got to where you are? What went wrong and how to fix it? You are the only one who can change your life. You are the only one who can decide enough is enough (that was hard for me to swallow cause change is hard but it's worth it! I was stubborn for too long waiting for something to change) Don't be uncomfortable in your own skin! Take back your life! Choose to do it now! Choose to love yourself and happiness!
