I am just checking in today to let you know how things are going on Trim Healthy Mama (THM). Last week was not a good week. We had several things come up and I didn’t stay on plan. I am still learning and trying to follow the plan. I am nervous about sharing this journey with you because I am worried about what negative comments might be left for me. I am praying that by sharing my journey, it might be a blessing to someone else and might encourage you to take this journey with me.
I tried a recipe out of the new Trim Healthy Mama cookbook a couple of weekends ago and it was a total fail. It was totally on my end. I was going to make the dessert before we went over to our friend’s house, but they are interested in Trim Healthy Mama too and wanted to see how easy the recipes really are. So, I took everything with me and made the dessert at their house. Anyway, I thought it tasted horrrible, but everyone was being really nice and said it wasn’t bad. So, I tried Pearl’s chili recipe on Sunday and it was AMAZING!!! Ritch and I really liked the chili, but Sarah thought it was a little too spicy.
On Saturday, we spent a couple of hours a corn maze and pumpkin patch (video and blog post coming on this adventure). We had a ton of fun and afterwards, we went out to dinner to the Flipping Cow in Elkhart. I was thinking as we were driving, that I was going to make sure that I ordered something that would be on plan. However, when I ordered, I didn’t stay on plan. I was really bummed at myself, but then decided I needed to give myself some grace and realize that I could get back on plan in three hours.
One of the many things that I am learning on this journey, is that I have to give myself some grace. This is NOT a diet, but a lifestyle change. I have been wanting to get healthy and lose some weight for a really long time. I had been praying and praying seeking guidance and direction from the Lord and he placed Trim Healthy Mama (THM) in my life and I really felt like this is the journey that I am to be on. This is going to be a journey filled with ups and downs I am sure. I am excited to see how my life is going to change and how my whole family gets healthier!!
I know that the Trim Healthy Mama (THM) plan can seem really overwhelming and complicated, but it isn’t and does get easier everyday. There is a lot of good support out there from the www.trimhealthymama.com website to Facebook and Pinterest. Please don’t get too discouraged or allow your self to get too overwhelmed either. Know, that I am on this same journey with you and will answer any questions you have as well as cheer you on!!!
I am enclosing the video that I shared on our Day In the Life with Keren and Sarah youtube channel. Please feel free to check out the video and if interested, please leave a comment, subscribe to our channel and like the video!!
Please help me stay accountable and come on this journey with me!!
