Moving On

Blogging here has been intermittent at best. So it should come as no surprise, really, that I will likely let this blog go.

Since Daniel and I are becoming fulltime RVers next year, we want to start a blog/website/YouTube channel/Instagram together. My goal is for that to happen by the end of this year even though we won’t be on the road until late next year (unless God moves up the date again).

I will come back to announce when our joint blog is up and running, and I hope you will follow us there. It will be a more focused outlet documenting our travel and lives on the road.

Until then.

Let’s Get Real

I need to get in shape. I need to get healthy. I need to lose 60 pounds. (YIKES!!) Can’t believe I’m going to post this picture publicly, but here goes.

I feel like I look like a big whale in that photo. YUCK!!!

I’ve been walking a couple of miles 3-4 days per week, but that’s not enough. I need to eat better. Way better. Yeah, my grocery list for tomorrow’s shopping looks a little bit different.

But breakfast is the difficult meal. I’m not hungry when I first get up. I don’t have much time in the mornings to prepare breakfast. I need some help coming up with ideas for a quick breakfast that is healthy, preferably high in protein.

Help! What have you got? What’s your go to healthy, high protein breakfast for busy mornings?

A Short Sunday Hike

Ah…we made it back to Long Hunter State Park today. It’s been way too long. We didn’t hike far, probably a mile or maybe a smidge more. But it was blissful.

This park is one of my happy places.

Hope you’ve had a great Sunday, too.

Amazon Prime Day Score

My Amazon Prime Day steal arrived today. I’m so excited! I’ve had the Instant Pot Duo Mini on my wish list for months. I bought it Tuesday at 50% off. Yay! I made perfect brown basmati rice in it tonight for supper. It’s going to be great for our RV life.

Did you shop during Amazon Prime Day? What was your amazing find?

Mother’s Day 2019

Mom holding me the day she brought me home after having me.

Today is another first without Mom. The first Mother’s Day. It’s still hard. It’s still impossible to understand that she’s not here, that I can’t just pick up the phone and call her.

Grief work is hard. Still. But I do know God is good and His GRACE will see me through this. I know that eventually I will smile instead of cry when I remember.

Happy Mother’s Day in heaven, Mom. I love and miss you.
