Beachbody Performance Energize Pre-Workout

PreWorkout + Pregnancy? 🤔 You’ve gotta be kidding me right?

I’m no superhuman, I mean I’m growing a human in my body which is pretty super but I don’t have a special energy superpower that allows me to get my booty out of bed and work out. I’m a normal human being….no I take that back I’m a normal NON MORNING human being that enjoys a warm cozy bed and staying in it until I absolutely must get out of it. If you’re connected with me on social media (and if you’re not why aren’t you???) then you’ll notice I’ve been up early in the AM getting my workout in before little man wakes up, so how am I doing it? Well let me explain. **DISCLAIMER** Always check with your doctor before starting a new Read More

3 Day Refresh

3 Day Refresh Recap

It’s over! It’s finally over!! Only joking this cleanse was not so bad, I expected much worst. I expected to be hungry all day, to be in the bathroom all day and to be grouchy…well grouchier than usual 😉 But it is in fact, over. I finished my 3 Day Refresh yesterday and I really couldn’t be happier with the results and experience. So let’s talk about this 3 day cleanse and how it went! RECAP Well I already posted my Day 1 recap. I’m pretty sure Day 1 was the least “fun” I was craving all the food I couldn’t eat, I had a caffeine withdrawal headache, and I had that pain in my right side but it wasn’t unbearable. Day 2 was much Read More

Refresh Day 1

Almost bedtime on Day 1 of my 3 Day Refresh! The idea of a cleanse didn’t sound too appealing, I wasn’t too excited about no coffee for even 1 day and no eating?! I was excited to see when I opened up my 3 Day Refresh package that there were several dinner options to choose from and it seemed like I would be eating pretty often. Check out my YouTube video on what exactly comes with the 3 Day Refresh and learn more about the meal options!   So how did Day 1 go? Well, I had a hard time keeping up with the food intake I got a late start to having my first shake so it threw me off for the rest of the Read More


Let’s Meal Prep!

It’s taken me a few months to get this meal prep thing down and although I still have some work to do I think I’ve got a nice little routine going. You may be wondering if meal prepping is right for you, well only you can decide that but I can tell you that yes it takes extra work on the weekend but I literally cook nothing all week when I do this meal prep the right way. My breakfast is made, my snacks are ready, my lunch is ready and dinner is a salad that I just throw together. And keep in mind when I say that I don’t have to cook any meals all week I am strictly talking about cooking my own meals, Read More

Bye Bye Baby Weight

Peeps, I’m not about weight loss. I really am not! I’m a firm believer in measuring results by how you feel, how you look in the mirror, how your clothes fit, are you getting stronger and do you have more energy. Now with that being said…I AM going to celebrate the fact that as of Sunday I am 7 lbs below my PRE PREGNANCY weight…yes you read that correctly. I weigh 7 lbs LESS than what I weighed before I got pregnant! Now if I’m not into checking the scale why am I celebrating this? Well because guys, I’ve been working hard at this and it just goes to show that this program is working for me!! How exciting! I’m eating more food than I ever have and I Read More


One Small Step

Guys, I cut down my sugar intake in my coffee by HALF in two weeks…and guess what? No one died, my husband still loves me, I’m still functioning!!! For the past two months I’ve been trying, with no success, to quit drinking coffee. Not because of the coffee but because of the sugar! Anything less than 3 generous spoonfuls of sugar in 1 cup of coffee was completely unacceptable…yes I said 3 spoonfuls! Multiply that by 3 cups of coffee, well you see where I’m going!  Coffee is the only time I regularly have sugar, throughout the day I don’t often crave sugar (I’m more of a salty snack kind of girl) so how was I going to cut out sugar without cutting out coffee Read More

2016-21 Day Fix Sunday Meal Prep-06 11.35.48-1

Meal Prep’n

Tomorrow is Week 3, Round 2 of my 21 Day Fix and I’ll be honest I haven’t been doing great! I started Round 1 super motivated and after I hurt my back and had to sit out on W3 R1, I just never got back into the groove. I fell back into bad eating habits and even when my back felt better I didn’t workout every day. Hey, it happens. The way I see it I have 2 options. 1. I can say screw it and continue on with eating healthy when I feel like it and working out when it’s convenient or 2. I can just DO IT! I choose the latter. So to finish off R2 STRONG, today I did my meal prepping Read More

21 Day Fix

21 Day Fix Part 1

I’m halfway into Round 1 of 21 Day Fix! Today marks Day 12 and I’m out with an injury so unfortunately I missed out on today’s workout. The good news is that missing this workout really bums me out. Why is this good news? Well because that means I’m actually looking forward to working out! The past couple of years I have dreaded working out, I had the time I had the resources but I just didn’t want to do it, and I felt like crap. The longer I went without working out the more miserable I became. So the fact that I’m bummed I couldn’t do today’s Dirty 30 workout (which is killer) is a great sign! So let me recap some of my Read More
