I can’t believe that it has been an entire year! This has been one of the most exciting journeys I’ve taken and this lovely road still continues. I’ve had the privilege of meeting (via world wide web) some very inspirational, beautiful, cheeky, tenacious folks. I have a lot of fun things in the works that I am super excited about and I hope that you will stay for the ride. Thank you all for your support, encouragement, kind words, internet hugs, and smiling emoticon faces.



Gluten Free Chicken Avocado Recipe

GF Chicken Avocado Sandwich

I didn’t use any measurements. I eyeballed everything and flavored it to my taste, so you can adjust it however you need to.


Shredded Chicken


Mayonaise (Optional)

Black Pepper

Onion Powder

Garlic Powder


Romaine Lettuce

Gluten Free Bread

When it comes to gluten free bread, it ONLY tastes good when it’s toasted or cooked.

Bon App├ętit!

ETA: If you like your chicken salad drier, use less avocado/mayo. If not, use more until you get your desired consistency.

Before & Progress

I just wanted to throw a little encouragement for “throwback thursday.” My weight gain happened pretty swiftly for many different reason with PCOS being the root cause. I tried everything I knew before I was diagnosed with PCOS. After doing a lot of research, I was able to find out how to become healthy regardless of any diagnosis. There is no trick or easy way out. If you want to be healthy, you have to do the work. Eat clean and exercise. That’s it. Believe in you, do it for you, and start loving you right where you are. If you don’t learn to love you in the body you are currently in, how do you expect to love yourself into who you’ll become? You can do it!!! xo

30 Days Strict Paleo


For the next 30 days, J and I are going to be eating a strict Paleo diet. We are currently on Day 8. Ha! As I’m typing this, I just realized that I thought I was on Day 5. I guess I’m doing a lot better than I thought.


One of my vices is having fruit snacks. The fruit snacks I love are the cheap ones that say Dinosaurs or Sharks on the box. It’s the store brand from the supermarket that costs anywhere from $1-$2. On my last day before 30 Strict Palo was going to start, I may or may not have purchase 4 boxes. Surprisingly enough, I didn’t finish them. I also have no desire to eat them right now. I did have a desire to eat some tater tots the other day, but I abstained.

So, 30 Day Paleo is underway. I won’t be updating how it’s going every single day, but I will continue to post different meals I’ve eaten, recipes, or recipes I’m trying so I can stay motivated and maybe re-inspire myself or others along the way.
