Dressing the New Me

I remember when….. always dates you when you start off something like that, but I do; I remember when I was a self-proclaimed fashionista. I don’t know if I was stylish, but had a sense of style, and then I became a Mom. With each lil diva, I fell into a different sense of style.  It happens, you change, your lifestyle changes, your body changes and so does your wardrobe.

Getting Summer Ready

So, here I am looking at the summer fashions thinking I am finally smaller its what I have worked for; right? I’m going to go to the store grab an Easter dress and a few things that don’t come in Small, Medium or Large or my personal favorite One Size Fits all (which anyone who has been bigger girls it should be One Size Fits Most)...

I received this book for free in exchange for a review. Receiving the book has no effect on my review.  There are Amazon affiliate links which I do make a commission from. My Full Disclosure Policy

“The Struggle is real,” I know that is a cliche at this pointI read the book, Full, it’s something that continuously looped in my head. I wish I would have found Full months ago, but then again I don’t think I was ready for it. For those of you who have been following my story, you have seen me lose a gross amount of weight in the last two years, but the one thing that although I am growing in daily still have not mastered is my food fixation and motivation.

It’s been almost two years, and I have made some serious lifestyle changes for myself and family...

Crazy Prayers!

What’s the craziest prayer you’ve ever prayed?  I don’t mean crazy in the sense that you were praying with bold faith for Kingdom values we know our Father has prepared for us.

I was thinking more along the lines of pretty self-serving, incredibly shallow, and well…crazy!

Mine is a prayer I prayed quite often for the decades of life that I was living under th...

Self Care is Biblical

Today’s guest blogger is Michelle Hartgraves from Faith, Coffee and Miles.  She is amazing wife, mother and fitness enthusiast with a heart for God.  I am grateful for her contribution to FaithFueled Moms and her valued input on how we must take care of ourselves.  Check out her thoughts: 

Imagine what happens when you neglect to give your home the necessary attention it needs,  soon it would be in total disarray, dishes piling up, mountains of laundry needing to be done, etc. Now think about what happens to your physical home (your body, your temple) when it is neglected or your attention is elsewhere; frustration, impatience, weight gain, health problems, spiritual emptiness, and depression are all factors that come into play.

Strengthening our bodies to nurture ourselves physica...

5 Habits Mom’s do to derail progress

mistake

I made a delicious, nutritious, and fat loss friendly meal for breakfast. Nothing extravagant Apple Chai (Sugar Free) Oatmeal and Hard boiled Eggs.  Something very simple after an intense workout. Ate my serving, that was measured out and a perfect portion, then I did the unthinkable. A habit that I have had since my lil diva’s started eating table food. I am usually mindful but you know how things go, sometimes you slip back into old habits. So, what did I do that is so heinous? As I am clearing the table, I…..yes, I did it. I scarfed down the leftover food from my littlest diva’s plate. (The horror-insert scared emoji here) I went from being completely satisfied with my meal, portion, and calories being in a healthy range...

Cleaning Up my Skincare

Alright, now that I know what is wrong with my stomach and I know how to fix it I have been on a mission to have clear skin the natural way. I don’t need a mask, treatment anything I want to improve my skin without Toxic Chemicals. My diet alone has made a vast improvement. Living a wheat free, mostly dairy free (I still love Cheese and Vegan Cheese doesn’t have the variety for my passion for yummy gourmet cheese and I need to detox, seriously). Wasn’t it till I had watched a documentary on Whats up with wheat?  It was eye opening, and I suggest that you check it out if you are wondering why this Gluten-Intolerance, Wheat Allergy is becoming an epidemic.

Wheat effecting my skin too

I learned a lot about digestion and gut health but what shocked me was that we pro...

Food & Mood: Healing the Whole Person- Mind, Body, & Spirit

faithfueledfeatureguestblogger

Recently, on Social Media I have been open with my battle of anxiety and depression and how living a healthier lifestyle has helped me.  I reached out to a long time friend Dr.Angela Clack to get her expert opinion on the effects of food and nutrition on mental health. I am honored that Dr. Clack would share with me and my readers.  Some great info here so take notes: 

It all starts with your mindset

Five years ago I lost 50lbs with fitness, nutrition, and accountability (a great nutritionist, professional accountability to hold my feet to the fire if I messed up) and I loved the results. However, because I made my goal a number on the scale and a clothing size instead of a commitment to a lifestyle change- the weight slowly crept back...

Progress in Action

FaithFueled Friday
When was the last time you admired yourself in the mirror? When have you showed your self love? Gazed in the mirror and saw God’s beautiful creation. I find that we use the mirror incorrectly. Instead of finding why we are special we are critiquing why we don’t live up to some fictionalized standard. It is so easy to get overly critical of our appearance, character, actions, and habits; Especially when we are not meeting our expectations of what we should.

My Mirror Avoidance

Throughout my weight loss journey, my vanity and worldly views would steal my joy.  Looking back now that I am mental, spiritually and physically happy I realize this is a big problem for lots of people.  Hindsight is always crystal clear...

Honor Your Temple Prayer Challenge Day 7

 Day 7

Today’s Prayer: Help me to focus on today and not the end results.

When I started this weight loss journey I had a goal in mind. A size, a look, a feeling, I had a destination to where I wanted to be. As I took each step towards that destination some days I felt like, “Yes, I will get there,” and then others I thought, “Oh no, it is way to far, I will never get there or it’s going to take me forever to get there.” That is not for us to worry about.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

We need to be present here and now. Giving all of our energy and focus on today...
