2017 Eclipse! + Day 4 Recap

Hey Guys!

Happy 2017 eclipse day! Jason and I just experienced it….

It. Was. WILD!!!!

The sun was only 98% covered in our location but it still became noticable cooler and darker. Our outside lights even came on! So weird! But so cool!

My fitness update has never seemed more boring that at this moment.

50 to Zip! Day 4

Yesterday was a win! I was only 90 calories over my limit given to me by My Fitness Pal and my food was 100% vegan. I do not workout on Saturday or Sunday. When you workout,Qu My Fitness Pal adds in the calories you burn during your workout to your daily goal and you get to eat a little more. It’s hard to stay under the limit on days that I don’t workout BUT ¬†stepped on the scale yesterday and I was 9 pounds down! So I am thinking I’m ok even with going over a bit sometimes.

SARAH!!! + 50 to Zip Day 1 Recap

Good morning!

SARAH IS Visiting!!!

I’m still in disbelief that this is actually happening…


Regular TKP readers know Sarah. She has been in most of the blog challenges and has been a commenter since the beginning. Sara and I met almost five years ago on the Kitchen Table, a forum for clean eaters on Tosca Reno’s website. The Kitchen Table no longer exists but our friendships is still going strong! We connected so well in the beginning because we had a ton in common. We had both just had babies, her son Declan and my son Ryan are only 5 weeks apart! We both try to keep a healthy and active lifestyle, we are the same age, same shoe size, and both love Jason Aldean! Haha! We just clicked. There is just one issue, she lives in Vancouver, Canada and I live in Atlanta, Georgia almost 3,000 miles away. We have kept in touch by phone and messaging for the past five years and have become the best of friends. In these past five years, we have both had another baby and have encouraged each other through the ups and downs. Sarah is honestly one of the most loving and selfless people that I have ever met.

Well, today Sarah and her boys are flying into Georgia! I’m so excited and I cannot wait to see her! I have butterflies just typing this.

God. Is. Good.

50 To Zip Day 1 Recap

Day 1 went really well. It’s always so neat to see the scale number drop a bunch from water weight lost. Down 5 pounds already! My Fitness Pal has my calorie level pretty low. I am realizing my mind is hungrier than my stomach. I stayed within the MFP calorie range yesterday and I wasn’t hungry but I did get the urge to eat. The “urge to eat” is not hunger. It felt like the first time I got into the car right after quitting smoking twelve years ago. I would usually light up right when I got in the car to drive somewhere so when I wasn’t smoking anymore, there was this feeling of “What do I do with my hands?” Same with the eating, “What do I do now?” haha! Luckily for me, being a stay at home mom brings many many things to do.

Like discount shopping with my girl!


Here’s the recap! I love any excuse to get a cute notebook.



Do you have a good friend that you met online? Have you ever seen them in person?

Is your mind hungrier than your stomach? How do you make sure that you are only eating when you are hungry?
