What you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your body for your skin. Unfortunately it’s always easier to just slather on creams then it is change eating habits. Real talk, I have been trying to drink the right amount of water for my body weight for months. I apparently have some kind of mental block about it and legit need to force myself. Please tell me I am not the only one out there like this.

So today is day #4 of a Whole30. I fell off the wagon months ago and honestly wasn’t motivated to get back on, but clothing is fitting differently and I have no desire to buy new clothes over this love of carbs and sugar. So I took advantage of the holidays and enjoyed every morsel of food and drink. But need to get back on track and Whole 30 is the best way for me to get my mind right. It hasn’t been too bad except I have a legit headache from the time I wake up until I go to bed and Im noticeably grumpy. One big advantage of Whole30 is there is no measuring, no calorie counting, just eat majority vegetables add in some protein and fat and you are good to go. But my main goal is to lose weight and break these cravings so I am still keeping to a moderate amount of calories. Calorie in, calorie out of quality food trumps all. So I eat 4 meals a day packed with fats, proteins, and carbs to keep blood sugar stable through day.
I eat breakfast around 9a (I enjoy my coffee too much to interrupt it with food), I’ve been having this smoothie around noon which prob sounds like lunch to you all but my kids go down for naps at 2p and I like to eat my lunch in silence so I hold off on real food until then, followed up with a 6pm dinner. Wanted to share this smoothie packed full of Whole30 goodness as well as Collagen peptides and greens to up your beauty game.
