Happy Wednesday babies! I know the site isn’t perfect but trust me I’m going insane trying to make it right. I at least have a search bar on the right hand side that Drops down into a ton of articles like recipes etc. On top of that I have all my latest articles on the front page to give you guys something to read while I make new content 🙂

I didn’t think about having to go through and reorganize my categories and all that so it’s just taking longer. Thank you for your patience and likes and comments. They mean the actual world to me.

So here we are the end of May. I have to say my weight loss so far for this month has been lackluster but I feel amazing. My muscle percentage and body fat has gone down. So far I think I have lost like 4 lbs for the month. I think that is nice slow albeit annoying steady progress. I’m not mad! I currently as of today 34.2 lbs away from my goal weight of 140 lbs. current weight so far 173.2 but I honestly don’t care for the scale that much.

I much more enjoy living my life moment by moment. Making good choices cause other good choices to follow. Suddenly it’s a large ball that keeps rolling and growing. When I do have a snack or something “bad” like a piece of pie (I made sweet Georgia peach pie with puff pastry 🥮 the other day) it’s very tiny and I enjoy it and I don’t think about it. I used to beat myself up over small things like that. Since now I have drilled into my mind portion control, that tiny piece of pie isn’t a big deal and isn’t going to ruin my life!! Feels good to finally feel free after years of yo yo dieting. After 18 plus months I have drilled these things into my brain-

Consistency! Show the hell up everyday. If you have chronic pain like I do it’s gonna be tough you may not be able to exercise at first or ever. But if you are serious about losing weight you will restrict your intake. I did that for about 16 months before I could workout. Keep showing up. Keep doing the workouts. Keep to your schedule. Keep drinking the water. Whatever habits work best for you, practice them. I promise you will need them later in your journey!!

Accountability! This has been huge for me. I have shared so much of my journey with you all. The ups the downs. The terrible tummy pictures. So ashamed of who I had become. But I shared. And I shared. And I still share because it’s important to know that you’re worth it and can take control of this too. It’s so much more than weight.

Don’t mind my hair lol.
On my way to my gym.

My last tip is portion control. I have learned you can literally eat pretty much anything you like as long as it for me personally measured weighed and fits in my macros. I do follow low carb, but I don’t put anything off limits in small quantities. This has helped tremendously.

So CAP.

Consistency. Keep doing the good stuff. Accountability. Share your journey with your friends or spouse or the world. Hold yourself to a high standard. Don’t let others down. People are watching you. If this feels like too much pressure, just tell the person what you need from them in case you fall of track! Lastly portion control. Weigh. Measure. Count but don’t obsess.

These three things have helped my journey immensely. I am so excited for June. Looking forward to completing my 100 miles in May challenge. We have still not ordered take out or eaten our since last August (except vacation). Ps that’s another huge tip I’ll do a blog on. Giving up the fast food and restaurants for good! For June I will probably focus on swimming, yoga, rowing, and of course running on my freestrider. Oh also stair-stepping. I really want to not have a flat ass haha 🥰

So yeah here is a gracegothealthy update and some tips. Leave me your best weight loss tips below!

Are you going to have loose skin? Yes, hi thighs. Is my life so much better now compared? Yes.
No excuses guys. Let’s keep going.

Not the most flattering angle…


So okay. Yeah. I didn’t want to post this but I wanted to share that even problem areas get better. I have always had a problem with my lower belly but through fitness and exercise it is certainly shrinking. Picture on left is from March 23. Picture on right is from May 18. I for sure notice a different in size. I know this is awkward but I just wanted to share. Don’t ever give up on yourself!

Late March on the left , May 18.
Here is a picture I thought I would never post haha. Me in Puerto Vallarta at around 255. Throwback Thursday!

I have been working out every single day to try to complete my one mile a day for May. That as I have mentioned has turned into 100. I’m almost at 60 miles, I hope I can do it. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

With everything going on in the world I just have been trying to stay calm and collected.

Now that’s a ^throwback Thursday!! Highest weight 335! Pre gallbladder surgery. Did I mention I had to have emergency gallbladder surgery because it was functioning at 6 percent? Yeah that happened!

Anyways, still working on getting the site together guys I know it’s hard to navigate right now! Thank you for your patience. Happy almost weekend!

100 miles in March. Update.


Hey friends hey 👏🏼🙏🏻😍
Well it happened. I hit my second goal! I hit 175 lbs as of May 20, 2020. I haven’t been this weight since I was 19.
Down a total of 160 pounds! This is about 2 years kids! Slow and steady. I had to have my gallbladder out. I was so lucky to lose this weight before I got super sick.
Do I have some loose skin? Sure see here ^^ but damn look at those legs! I’m so proud of them even with some skin!!
Rowing is changing my life
I can’t believe I have collarbones.
I’ve been practicing my diving and trying to swim laps.
Been eating good, not drinking, and working out. Feeling great. I have some reviews coming up for you guys soon

Thank you guys for being patient with the site. I know it’s not set up correctly yet but it’s super close. It will be super easy to find all my older blogs. I hope you all are doing well!!

My ultimate goal weight is 140. I can’t wait to see it! One day at a time no matter how long it takes!

My goal is to do 100 miles in March. I’m at 50.76 right now. I have to do 3.54 miles each day to make it happen. I got this! Be well! 😘

From this week..


I took this when I woke up with accidental flash and liked it. Love that for me. 😜
We love a bikini for 25 dollars! (Amazon).
Made puff pastry pizza with vegan mozzarella, homegrown heirloom tomatoes, chives, savory. So good.
I recommend Violife if you are trying to watch your dairy. (I am trying to cut it out slowly but surely). Give this try a brand. I wish it had more protein but it’s stats aren’t bad.
Made a tiktok 😂
Fresh. all homegrown except the carrots and onion 🙂
I finished a 6 week fast n fit program!!
Can’t stop spraying this into my face.
Fell in love with these for outside 🙂
Spent some time microdosing for my pain. I promise there will be a in depth chronic pain/back update soon.
Trying to eat more color. Look at this gorgeous watermelon 🙂
I am obsessed with this product!! I cook it up with ghee and add a protein. Like an egg or whatever. So simple and good. The stats aren’t great for ketosis strict, but could certainly be a low carb replacement
11 net carbs a serving. Delish.
Got some kind words from my trainer 💪🏼
Wildflowers coming in.

Healthy living.


I’m back guys!


So…. it’s been a few years!

I’m back and I’m down 158.6 pounds 💪🏼

I Decided to come back because I have completely changed my life and I want to share everything with you.

From my chronic pain. I’m finally ready to open up about that.

My experience with keto, low carb, fasting, and other healthy tips.

My adventures with my #homegym and new #fitness adventures.

My pool! Haha mostly? I want to inspire you all. I’m finally almost to 140 . I’m almost at 175 lbs now from 335. Official goal weight is 140. I will share the ups and downs to get there!

Recipes that I adapt from others and a ton of pictures and ideas to share from my garden with you all 💕

I want to talk to you about products that are helping me with my pain (cbd) has been a lifesaver and all my tips for those chronic pain days plus products that helped or are helping me along my journey and allowing to maintain this lifestyle. I went from. 60 inch waist size 28/30 to now I’m in a size 12/14. Do I have a lower belly? Sure! Is it much better than the alternative yes. I’m working every single day to have self love and care for myself. It truly helps. Don’t be down on yourself, just keep going. We are all competing against ourselves!

I am having my header and design reworked and it should all be new and updated. Would love for you to come along for the ride.
