The Elephant Escaped The Room

Recently I wrote a blog post entitled "The Elephant in the Room" sharing some of my personal struggle this winter with depression, infertility and overall sadness. As I tried to come up with a title for this post the idea of the elephant escaping that room came to mind and here are a few reasons why.

First off I've completed over a week of the Whole30. I haven't cheated at all, have had some DELICIOUS meals, and I feel great! The headaches and being tired are gone and it's been smooth sailing this week. I love that at this point I'm starting to realize how good healthy food can be. You might have to be a little creative, plan ahead and do a little more work, but coconut crusted chicken with marinated asparagus and homemade seasoned fries are WAY better than any fast food restaurant. It is empowering to stick with something that is HARD and I'm proud of my commitment so far.

What else? What else? Oh! Beachbody has an awesome new workout coming out next month called CIZE. It's a choreographed dance workout by Shaun T and it's going to make working out super fun! Beachbody On Demand members get special access to one workout called You Got This. It's 40 minutes long, but flies by, and is super fun. If you want to check out this new program I can get you a code to a free 30 day trial of Beachbody On Demand. Just comment or contact me if you are interested.

Finally, the hubby and I just booked our flights to head out to California in two weeks. He's photographing a wedding, and we thought it would be fun to make a trip of it. We plan to see San Francisco, the Redwood Forest, Discovery Kingdom, Santa Maria, LA, Hollywood, and Magic Mountain! To name a few :-)

It's kind of humbling and sad for me to think of where I was this winter, so selfish, so focused on the one thing I couldn't have, and feeling like I didn't deserve what I was going through. (Check out my post The Elephant in the Room to get the full story.)

Right now at my church I am doing a Bible study called "God's Perspective When Life Hurts," by Darlene Kordic. It's been the perfect thing right now to put my life into perspective. I am so blessed, and I don't deserve one bit of it, but I will do my best to enjoy it to the max and remember that every good and perfect gift comes from the One who loves me more than anyone else. I will also choose to remember that when things aren't going my way He has a perfect plan that will grow, mold and work me to be who He wants me to be!
