Independence Day 2019

It's hard to believe that it is July already. Summer just got here, but it seems like it is slipping away so quickly. Before we know it, summer will be gone, it will be fall, and we'll be slipping into winter. After that comes the new year! Sigh. Tomorrow is a big day here in… Continue reading Independence Day 2019

It’s Summer!

Yes! Summer is here! It's my favorite time of year. What's yours? I feel like summer is a time to be free and enjoy the outdoors. As a school-age child, summer meant no school and lots of time to play outdoors. As a homeschool mom, it's almost the same feeling! It's a time to lighten… Continue reading It’s Summer!

Celebrating 200 Days of Bright Line Eating

As of tomorrow (Thursday) I’ll be celebrating 200 days of Bright Line Eating (BLE). It’s sounds like such a long time, but it has gone by quickly. I’m not sure how to describe the last 100 days except to say that it keeps getting better and better.

My Weird Non-Scale Victory

What is a non-scale victory (nsv)?  Non-scale victories are the benefits of your new, healthier lifestyle.  There are other things to look forward to besides stepping on the scale and seeing the numbers go down.  Anyone that's been on a weight-loss journey knows that the scales don't always go in the direction or at the… Continue reading My Weird Non-Scale Victory

BLE and Bullet Journaling — Katie’s Bright Kitchen

Have you tried bullet journaling?  I wanted to, but it seemed so complicated.  I read articles and even a book on how it MUST be done.  The thought of being so organized sounded wonderful, but it also sounded so complicated that my perfectionist self wouldn't even try it in fear of doing it "wrong." Once… Continue reading BLE and Bullet Journaling — Katie’s Bright Kitchen

Self-Care

If you're feeling tired, exhausted, discouraged, or burned out, I encourage you to find some things that you can do regularly to take care of yourself.  Think of it as maintenance just like you would maintain your car to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.
