The Never-ending Struggle?

Since I was 16 and hit puberty head-on, I've struggled with my weight flucuating. I've struggled with working out on a regular basis. It's still the same struggle. Except now I'm as heavy as I've ever been and am almost technically overweight. I'd like to blame it on having 3 babies, and that may be what initially caused the gain, but I'm doing a fantastic job of keeping it on by my eating choices. The past 7 weeks have been go-go-go for us: 2 weeks at camp, a retreat, a slew of Affix gigs, and busyness with my job with no time to cook have led to eating a bunch of what I shouldn't and not much of what I should.

Ack. So here I go. I'm going to attempt a raw diet detox this week. Basically, only water and raw fruits and vegetables for at least a week. The best part of this diet is that you can eat as much as you want as far as the veggies are concerned. I'll let you know how it goes! I'm actually not going to committ to working out. One thing at a time. :)

My biggest struggle is going to be giving up my daily chai latte. Oh, I miss it already!

Switching Hats

It's July now, which my month of June is over. My month of two weeks of camp and 3 days of retreat are over. I wish I would have blogged more about these experiences, but obviously, I was busy on my in-between days. There were wonderful days and awful days, but mostly days filled with fun, faith, friends, and fellowship.

One of the hardest things though is switching back into SAHM roll. It's so wonderful having an adult to talk to first thing in the morning, co-laborers who help you through the days tasks, and prayer and Bible study times. I guess that is what makes it a retreat though.
