Sorry I have been missing in action lately. Between the holidays and traveling I am exhausted! We had to go to Tucson last week to celebrate the adoption of my niece.
My sister took care of this little girl in the NICU and they asked her if she wanted to be an emergency foster parent for her. My sister has never been a foster parent so this was a new big step for her. She fell in love with her as we all did and started the adoption process. Unfortunately it took up tell she was a year and 3 months to get this finalized. We all went through alot of heartache but now she is finally apart of our family and has the best mom ever.
As you can see I’m just a little bit happy to have my first niece. 😍😀
As for my Arbonne life if you have missed my earlier posts I am doing Arbonne’s 30 days to healthy living. I have lost 7.5 pounds and I have 1 week left. I think most importantly though I feel really good. I suffer from headaches and migraines I pretty much have one or the other every single day. About a week into this I pretty much stopped having them. This is such a big deal for me and I couldn’t be happier.
Losing weight has been so awesome as well. I sure that my momma friends on here can agree with me that having babies changes you. Unfortunately it changed me for the worst. If I’m being totally honest I have some saggy skin and stretch that look like a tiger attacked my stomach. And I know everyone says to embrace it and love it because you got you children from that. I wouldn’t change anything for the world!! I love my girls so much but I don’t have to love what happened I just have to accept it. At least losing has giving me a great confidence back that I haven’t had in a while. This can affect every area of your life and your relationships. Now the big step will be maintaining a relatively healthy lifestyle after this.
Grilled Chicken with Black Bean Mango Salsa
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Sea salt and pepper to taste
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Juice of 1 lime
Black Bean Mango Salsa
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp EVOO
1 Cup Black Beans (rinsed and drained)
1 Ripe mango (peeled add diced)
1/4 Cup minced fresh cilantro
1 Jalapeno (chopped)
I put the chicken in a saute pan because it is way to cold outside for the grill. Place the chicken over brown rice that I cooked with lime juice and cilantro with a little mango salsa on top. This was delicious and super healthy what could be better. I had to add ketchup of course to my daughter but she ate it. Haha
S’mores for Daddy and Lexi to end the night.
