beauty for ashes

well...maybe not EVERY day...

so...clearly my life is too hectic to post every day! my joshua got sick and my jonah got grouchy. I think he may be going through a growth spurt. far, things have gone well with the diet change. cutting out gluten again has not been as hard this time. I think I am tired of feeling lousy. and fat.
I lost 4 pounds in five days. I guess gluten really messes with my system.

today was really lovely, by the way. the family spent the afternoon outside on a blanket. jonah loves the sunshine! then we went to grandma and grandpa's house for dinner.

that's all for now. time for sleeps!

so...I have decided to make a sacrifice for lent. I have been taught that the idea behind giving something up for lent is that you do it with the intention of giving said item up for good.

for me, I am giving up the unhealthy habits I have reimplemented into my life now that I have had jonah. I have pretty much gained back the 10 lbs I lost, which makes me feel so defeated.

my goal is to write about my struggles and triumphs each day on here. we will see how it goes with my darling (almost 2 month old!) jonah.
