Day 47: The Little Things

About that whole "steel marshmallow" moment...yep so that didn't last very long! I've stumbled through this week and have felt far away from the Proverbs 31 goal I am aiming to achieve. I've struggled with sleep, veered away from my healthy eating plan, dragged myself through workouts, let my emotions get the better of me... Continue Reading →

Steel Marshmallows

Forgiveness has taken place, grace has been applied to... Continue Reading →

Ambitious

Ambitious -having or showing a strong desire and determination to succeed. Listed in the 23 characteristics of the Proverbs 31 woman is the word ambitious. As a result of spotting this word, a moment of complete insanity descended today. I rummaged through a box of old DVDs and found my nemesis...Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I... Continue Reading →
