If you've ready any of my previous blog posts, I'm sure you've heard me mention Dashing Dish.
Katie Farrell is the creator of Dashing Dish, and she has a blog, healthy and clean recipes, helpful videos, and more!
I've been so blessed by Dashing Dish and was so excited to learn last year that she has two books coming out: a cookbook and a devotional!!
I just had to pre-order both books and I can't wait for them to come out!
Plus, when you pre-order the cookbook, you'll receive a FREE 1-month meal plan!
All you have to do is email your confirmation to the email provided in the blog post, which I'll provide at the end of this post.
Let me tell you, the meal plan is worth getting the book alone.
There are many membership recipes included in the meal plan, which is so neat because unless you're a member on Dashing Dish you don't have access to those recipes (since Dashing Dish is a ministry, that is how she funds the website. The minimum is $5 per month, or whatever you can afford, which is a great deal! )
So, check out Dashing Dish: dashingdish.com/
Pre-Order her books!!! dashingdish.com/dashing-dish-cookboo
I really hope you enjoy the Dashing Dish site!

On August 19, 2014, my friend asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding next year.
I was so shocked and I'm so honored that she would ask me, of all people!
It's really special because there are only going to be two of us: her maid of honor and me, her bridesmaid.
As soon as she asked, I thought, I have to lose weight.
I sure as heck don't want to be a fat bridesmaid (although I will still be, but just a little lighter lol).
So far I've been doing decent.
I've been writing down what I eat and I'm done with sugary drinks because I have to start somewhere!
I'm still struggling terribly with food choices, and I'm not sure how to change this.
But I must buckle down because before you know it and I'll be trying on dresses and honey, I want them to fit!

Today I turned 21 years old YAHOOOO now I can participate in 'grown-up' things such as drinking, gambling, etc.
I'm a kid at heart :)
I remember last year at this time I said I would lose 50 pounds... nope
I said around January I would lose 21 by the time I turn 21... nope
But I'm not disappointed, why?
Because I didn't even try.
I have a gym membership, and I only went once- once!
I went on January 1st, 2014, and I have not been there since.
I don't know; something has come over me where I just don't even think about weight loss anymore. I used to love weight loss success stories and going on SparkPeople and everything, and I guess it's still in the back of my mind but it's definitely not at the forefront of my brain! I think there's something wrong with me lol!
March 11, 2014 marked the 2 year anniversary when I officially began my weight loss journey and was totally into it.
Also, I've been busy with school, my part-time job, and also my sister had her baby on March 14, 2014!!!!
This is my niece, Isabella and I! She's about 6 weeks old in this picture. She's just the cutest, sweetest thing on planet Earth I tell ya!
I know, I can't wait for the 'right time' to start, and I do want to lose weight, just not bad enough, which I can't stand because I wish I was super motivated all the time and wish I just wanted to lose weight badly enough to do something about it!!!
I just need to stop talking right now, so I'll let you go as I finish up a 5-page paper that's due tomorrow.
I hope everyone is doing great on their journeys to becoming healthier and better!
God bless and good night!!!

I was reading through someone's blog posts and she gave tips on how she lost weight.
One of them was being honest with yourself, and to the people on Sparkpeople.
Quite honestly, the only one I'm fooling is myself.
I've mentioned this before but I do think I have an addiction to fast food.
It's really hard for me to eat it only once a week, because, quite honestly, I really don't like to cook/don't really know how, and I don't even know what to cook.
Fast food is tasty and convenient (not really cheap though because I buy food for my sister and I, and it adds up!)
But I consume thousands of calories worth in one sitting!!!
I wake up with fast food on my mind, trying to find ways I can get it.
And the dollar store! oh my, cheap foods everywhere!!
But I know I'm doing my body a disservice, quite frankly, I feel like I'm treating it like crap.
I swear, I'll probably have withdrawals, no kidding, trying to cut back on fast food.
I'm so not used to eating healthy foods.
And we haven't been to the gym in a while.
The good news though is that on January 17th, I went to the Doctor's and I lost 4 pounds!! That has to be from cutting out sugary drinks! So I'm excited about that. :)
I told him that I still struggle with eating out, and again his advice was to eat out only once per week. I have to look at the positives- eating out only once per week will save me money and calories...and fat, sodium, and lots of things! He also said to start off with simple recipes, since I'm not much of a cook!
I also think today marks my 1 year Sparkpeople anniversary!!
Thanks for allowing me to be honest with you and God bless you all on your weight loss journeys!
