the journey

This "PIN" sums up the journey...

While it feels like a roller coaster of ups and downs, 
it has made me stronger and who I am today.
If it weren't for the hard days then I wouldn't appreciate the process and where this journey has taken me.  
People I've met, goals I've reached, finish lines I've crossed...
It wouldn't matter as much BUT because of the hard times, 
I'm able to appreciate my victories THAT much more!

Recipe Time!

Ranch Crock Pot Chicken:
You'll Need:
4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1 can no salt added corn, with juice
1 can mild Rotel with juice
1 dry ranch packet
1 block 1/3 less fat cream cheese or Neuftchael cheese

Layer chicken in bottom of crock pot set on HIGH 6 hours
Add other ingredients in no specific order, put on lid and 6 hours later you'll have juicy, fall apart chicken that I served over 1/2 c long grain brown rice!  Family hit that I will be cooking often :)

These ladies keep me sane!  They keep me grounded and they help me see my own strength while finding theirs!  We are one!  We lean on each other through the hard times and laugh and congratulate through the good times!  It's like family...
The kids are watching and playing while we push hard and then as we gather for our after-workout picture, the kids are laughing and smiling right beside us!  
They see us work hard and you can see how proud we make them with each workout :)  
Find people to lift you up on this journey...it is SO important for success!!!
