Day 14 - I'm 39 :)

Well, God has blessed me with another year! I'm super thankful to celebrate a birthday at such an exciting time in my life. Yesterday I was pretty much kicked out of my house all day so my landlords could show my house for rent. I'm technically leaving a month before my lease is up, so if they rent it before July 1 I save that rent. And they did... So it was worth it!

I made good food choices all day. And I skipped cake altogether which was HUGE for me. I've NEVER EVER had a birthday with no cake or sweets. I had this instead...

Major victory. 

I also made it to the gym today for the first time since starting the challenge. Better late than never, right?

I did a little meal prep today... Some siracha bbq chicken breasts, protein balls, and cut up a watermelon. Eating clean and making good choices is getting easier by the day. I feel my habits changing for the better.

I passed on cake for my birthday for God's sake!

My goal is to stay focused so I CAN enjoy delicious cake for graduation this Saturday. My friend, Allison, makes cakes that are truly worth it? So I will indulge then. But I'm ok with it because I've planned for a month. It's not done on an impulse. 

Lifestyle change, right?


  1. Happy Birthday! Congrats on avoiding cake, too - that's a big win!

  2. That's wonderful! Those strawberries look so good! I had amazing peaches this week, and I can't get enough watermelon!

  3. Happy Birthday! I was going to say the other day when you said you had such a great weight loss without working out...SOMETHING about going to the gym. But you are right! Better late than never! You are killing it!

  4. I'm rooting for you, I hope you get to where you want to be. Those strawberries look delicious.

  5. You are totally awesome. I have never been able to skip cake on anyone's birthday, let alone my own. You are an inspiration, and I love reading your blog! Thank you for the support you provide, and late happy birthday!

  6. Hey, happybirthday for a few days ago!

    I used to always have trouble getting to the gym. I guess that's why I love running so much - you can do it anywhere (that and bodyweight exercises). The strawberries looked yummy. Kicked out on your birthday sucks though.

    Hope you have a good year :D

  7. Happy birthday, and hopefully you have great success with your weight loss goals this year!

  8. Hey Hollie! We are almost exactly the same age...I turned 39 May 28. Geminis rule, and the big 4-0 looming is going to really motivate me. That gym selfie looks great; your face is slimming down quick on the new plan. Good vibes coming your way; I've always appreciated the fact that you've had ups and downs and never stop.

  9. Wow I love your dedication :)
    I find that when I start a new habit it usually takes about
    three weeks to really get it on autopilot.

    Good luck
