Previous updates: week one / week two / week three I’m here with my last food diary update for the whole30!

the houston project

July 15, 2014

Image credit I was recently inspired by my friend Stephany to experience our hometown more fully. This project is fun for me on so many levels. I have already greatly enjoyed researching more about Houston, compiling recommendations, and making this list of goals. Checking them off will be awesome too, as they involve a mix of family adventures and new date night ideas. I plan to post monthly about it with a roundup of all the things we did. But for now, here is my list: Family Adventures 1. Walk the Memorial Park loop and visit the Houston Arboretum 2. Go to a Sugar Land Skeeters game 3. Visit the Waterwall and Williams Tower observation deck 4. Play at Discovery Green 5….

around here

July 14, 2014

Every Saturday morning I sit down and plan out my weekend and usually make my grocery list at the same time. It’s one of my favorite things. (Also: more on how I use the bullet journal, and that pen is amazing.) This is how I get almost all my chores done really quickly on Saturday mornings. She’s watching Mother Goose Club YouTube videos, FYI. It’s so nice that Liam can sit in the high chair now! (This is the one we have and it’s pretty great.) I wanted to see if he’d be interested in that banana, but it eventually just fell in his lap and that was the end of that. I went out to eat with a friend…

link roundup / 6

July 11, 2014

Today I’m sharing some stuff I found around the internet. Enjoy! >Ten practical ways to start eating healthier. I love this so much, especially the following quote I found in it: Don’t think worship services when you think worship. That is a huge limitation which is not in the Bible. All of life is supposed to be worship. Take breakfast, for example, or midmorning snacks. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, ‘Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.’ Now eating and drinking are about as basic as you get. What could be more real and human? You are always in a temple. Always worship.  –John Piper >Love these repurposed book journals. >I don’t…

things i am loving right now

July 10, 2014

Since starting whole30 I’ve realized just how often I tend to reward myself with food. It’s important for my mood to have things to look forward to, and food is usually the easiest pick-me-up. So a big part of this has been retraining my brain to see other things as a reward, and to take more pleasure in little things. So I wanted to share some of what is making me very happy lately! 1. Finding my personal style and curating my wardrobe : I’ve been having so much fun with this now that I’m back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I did another closet purge and also separated out all the colder weather clothes so that everything I have is easily…
