A New Journey ....

Well Hello Everyone! Welcome 2017! I took a bit of a blog break after the Holidays and enjoyed some family time and some down time as well. For the first time in a LONG time I'm not on a design team. It's kind of an empty feeling if that makes sense, but also a liberating feeling. My time is mine now to do whatever I want. If a design team opportunity opens up, I'm all over it but in the meantime, it's time to focus on me ... my health especially! 
Since my Birthday in October of 2016 I embarked on a new nutrition journey. I thought, sure I'll try this one - we'll see what happens. Now, 3 months later, I'm 20 lbs, lighter, have more energy, sleep better and feel sooooo good!!! My digestive issues are resolved, my arthritis is better and I feel happier! Several of my co-workers are on this journey with me which is great and we have each other's support. This is a journey I'm beyond glad I took and will continue to take to stay healthy. It's amazing how much nutrition plays a role in our health.
Eating healthy is the best medicine for you body. You have more energy, sleep better, are more focused and perform better.
My diet is now a plant based program that detoxes my body and replenishes it with healthy nutrition. It's easy, delicious AND it works. Yes, I have an occasional adult beverage, dessert and over indulge once in awhile. Then I jump right back into the program and I'm back on track in no time.
The other benefit to my weight loss is clothes! Clothes look so much better on me now. I have more options, I have more confidence in what I look like and nothing feels better that that!! I'm trying a new clothing subscription. I have done a ton of research and thought I would give this one a try. It's called Stitch Fix. I received my first Fix this week and was pleasantly surprised!! You can try on and keep what you like in the comfort of your own home, and send back what doesn't work in a prepaid mailer - easy peasy. The clothing is unique and trendy and so comfortable. Give it a try!! Here's a referral code if you'd like to save some $$ on your first order. 
I will still be crafting - in fact I'm working on my third commissioned canvas for a friend. I'm creating cards and playing in my planner. I'm sure I'll continue with project life, just not as often. 
So thanks for listening and if you are interested in more information on either my nutrition program or on Stitch Fix, please let me know - I'll be happy to answer any questions!!
Happy 2017!!
