When you're NOT in it to win it.....

I've been out of sorts lately...hence the absence....happily I'm still at 173lbs but not happy with my maintenance phase I feel like I'm in. We've been eating out a lot....I haven't felt like going to the gym, although I have been....again, just sort of out of it. I'm not sure why and I could make excuses but I won't. That was the old Morgan....the new Morgan pushes through that feeling of hopelessness.....through the feelings of exhaustion & those awful cravings.....

So what do I do then?

Well I come up with another I'm switching it up! Cleaning up my diet which really needs the major overhaul....I eat crappy food people. Especially lately.....all I want is junk....and more junk! Hopefully some of you can's hard when you love food as much as I do.

Some of you may not know that I cater a bit on the side. My biz was going well for a while, after baby #3 but I put it on hold to get control of my weight. So when I recently got asked to cater an event this week, I sorta fell apart a bit. I've been concentrating on my vision for friday along with my budget and letting myself get put on the back burner....just like I've done in the past. And old habits die hard...for sure! I love cooking for's sort of an extension of my heart & soul in food form. Perhaps that's why we do so well together? Who am I kidding???? Food and I don't do well together....I guess you could say, well cook healthy, but that's not my style...I lighten things up where I can or on request but usually my cooking is all about the has to taste amazing.

So maybe that's where my "out of it" feeling is stemming from....I'm not sure but I know I just can't sit here and put back on the even though I don't want to, I go to the gym...even though I don't feel like it, I will pass on the dessert. It has taken me a long time to get to where I am...I'm not gonna let all the hard work go up in flames.

I will also be starting another Advocare 10 Day Cleanse on August 18th...I would love you to join me and I'll give away some beautiful jewelry when I'm done! Hit up my girl Alyse and get your cleanse ordered so we can start together!!!

So for those out there who are maybe going through the same out of it feeling....chin up! You'll get there. Maybe all you need is a change...perhaps a cleanse? Just don't stop....because at least moving slowly forward is better than going back.


  1. Oh girl, I needed to hear this today! Especially that moving forward part. I have been in a big time lull for way too long. I have a million and one excuses but it all comes down to just being lazy and not pushing myself enough. Somedays I wonder how badly I want it because I'm not doing a whole lot to lose weight. I just need to find that fire within and set a torch to it! Haha! I'm going to get back on the Fast Metabolism diet this week and PLAN ahead! If I do that, the rest is a no brainer! Chin up and good luck to you!!

    1. Whew! I thought I was the only's hard, especially when the people around me don't seem to relate....keep me posted on how you do!!!

  2. It is a difficult lifestyle, being healthy, isn't it? It takes way more discipline, self control and concentration than the life we used to live. In the moment it is super hard to make the best decision but the rewards far out weigh that. We will just need to keep doing what we know is right,

  3. I'm in the same place: crappy eating, slacking on the's hard during summer when the kids are home and there's no schedule! You are not alone!

  4. It takes so much mental work to be healthy. It take so much to work out everyday and not pound that box of donuts. Love your blog! Following you on GFC. I would love it if you followed back!


  5. I never tried Advocare Cleanse but I'd like to try. I can totally relate to you when you said you want to clean up your diet. I need to overhaul too! :)
