Life Lately…

Apologies for being quite absent lately…. it’s been 3 months since my last post- eek!  I have a few drafts in the works, so you will see some more blog posts in the coming weeks.   Is there anything specific you want to hear about? Let me know!!

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week!  We sure have lots to be thankful for this year.  Our baby girl is already 10 months old and is such a happy, fun baby.  She’s adventurous and always on the move… I think she may start walking soon.  I’m so very thankful that we’ve been blessed to continue with exclusive breastfeeding still even with all our troubles in the beginning.  She also loves food, which I can thank the Baby Led Weaning process for- I’ll be sharing all about introducing her to solids here soon.

I’m also thankful to work for a company & manager that have been supportive of me as a working mom and allowed me to go part-time.  It’s allowed for much better balance in my life and I am blessed to be able to spend more time with my daughter.  Just a few months ago, I was in absolute survival-mode; now I can breathe again.  On Mondays, I try to prep our breakfast & lunch meals for the work week, so I’ll soon be sharing my favorite recipes like overnight oats and paleo broccoli salad, as well as some go-to weeknight meals. In the meantime, follow me on Instagram @chrissysu and #healthyandhopeful – I am always showing my #mealprepmonday routine and recipes on my Story.

I hope y’all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.  God Bless!

Best of 2015

I can’t believe 2016 is upon us!  Reflecting over this past year, I feel so very thankful. While I had lots of new health issues come to the surface, I also experienced a lot of healing (praise God!). Leaving my job at the beginning of the year was a huge blessing as the burden of years of overwhelming stress was finally lifted. It’s allowed me to spend more time, energy and focus on my health and on making memories with friends, family, and my husband.

I want to thank you all for visiting this blog… I have loved being able to write more this year, to connect with all of you and to share my passion for health. I’m super excited for what is to come in 2016 – if you don’t want to miss any upcoming posts (which you WILL if you only follow me on Facebook), enter your email address over to the right and Follow Healthy & Hopefulhit this button to get an email whenever I publish a new post (1-4 per month).  You can also follow me on Instagram @chrissysu
