I recently had the challenge of being confronted with a family crises that pushed me to the very limits of my being. It left me emotionally drained and I felt a heaviness in my heart that I have not felt in a very long time. Even now, the thought of this “road block” brings tears to my eyes, and pain in my chest.

Shakeology Cleanse, Day One… Fresh start

So today I have decided that I am in need of a new start! I just finished with two weeks of vacation, and while I did workout and try to stick to my healthy diet, I admit that I was certainly not perfect! I currently feel bloated and I’m pretty certain that I gained some weight back (haven’t had the nerve to get on the scale). I typically can tell by the way my clothes fit, and mine are not as lose as they were two weeks ago.
