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

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


It’s Here! 21 Day Fixate

  The cookbook arrived and I couldn’t wait too pick out some meals and go grocery shopping! I’m keeping it simple for week 1 and choosing 3 recipes per meal as well as 1 soup, a couple snacks and a couple shakes. I’m also choosing recipes where food can be reused for other meals and recipes that don’t require a big investment on my part when it comes to grocery shopping. Here’s my Week 1 Menu: Breakfast:  Vegetable Egg Cups Banana Oat Pancakes Portobello Mushroom and Goat Cheese Omelette Shakes (I do not currently have Shakeology so I’m using good ol protein powder): Banana Peanut Butter Bliss Berry Delight Lunch: Creamy Chicken Salad Wrap Creamy Chicken Salad Mexican Taco Lettuce Wraps Snacks: Sweet Potato Chips Zucchini Chips Read More


21 Day Fix is everywhere…but what is it?

If you’re on social media you’ve probably seen people talking about this 21 Day Fix…so what is it? Well, my good friend Shaylinn over at Shaylinn Barlow Fitness invited me to a free 3 Day Fixate group, I was intrigued and I’ve been wanting to clean up my eating so why not? She provided us with 3 days of clean eating recipes straight out of the 21 Day Fix Recipe Book and grocery lists (so helpful). Now guys, you have to understand….I don’t do clean eating. I live with 2 boys that survived on nachos before I came into their lives so eating clean hasn’t really been a realistic option, but I gave it a try. I went to the grocery store, this in itself was a challenge Read More
