When my husband was looking to buy a house 12 years ago, I just couldn’t really visualize what he was seeing with our current home. That is until we put our personal touch on it with paint and decor. But I realize now that we have a family, a home is more than just cosmetics.

I love summertime because that means more outdoor grilling on hot summer days, which mainly involves my husband’s doing while I sit back and enjoy a cold beverage. But, I do occasionally come up with tasty meals and grill them up myself when I am feeling adventurous.
Now, I know there are some people that prefer certain types of grills. We’ve owned numerous types, but my favorite will always be a toss between wood-pellet and charcoal. There’s just something about the charcoal and smokey wood pellet flavors that deliciously seep into the meat.
But for this recipe, I used my mom’s gas grill since we were all hungry and I wanted the Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken to cook quickly.
I’ve been following a new way of eating for the last month and now I am going to share my results with you. This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed above are my own.
The Always Eat After 7 PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks – While Burning Fat Overnight by Joel Marion is one of the easiest and well thought out way of eating that I have followed. I will say, there are days where it’s impossible to eat healthily when out and about or when you go camping, but if you put a bunch of thought into it and pre-plan it could work even then too!
There are so many things I have learned from this book that I will use forever. I really dig the 3 different phases. The acceleration plan was a little hard to get used to since I am used to eating breakfast. Basically, you need to do intermittent fasting. One of Joel’s tips in the morning is to drink lemon water – half of the lemon with water, which supports weight loss, digestive health, physical performance, and cognitive function. A simple 3-minute fat-burning morning ritual is key! I love lemon water, so this was easy for me to enjoy.
The recipes are also tasty and super easy to make and if you eat specific higher-carbohydrate foods, they will support your fat-burning metabolism while you sleep, providing your body with a steady stream of fuel throughout the night. The trick is knowing how to combine them with other evening and pre-bedtime fat-burning foods to fuel your metabolism as you sleep.
I started the plan late, so I am not at my goal of what I want to achieve but I know I can do it as long as I stick to it. SO far, I have lost 5lbs and I am okay with that because it has also improved my mind, my attitude, and my mood.

Have you ever set a huge goal, then felt overwhelmed, and you ultimately gave up? That’s me. But, now I try to set smaller goals that are more easily achievable so I am not constantly feeling down about not completing them. Just having the believing that I can mindset already sets me up to be halfway there.
