Cooking Workout #1: Chicken & Shoulders.

Let’s start a new trend here. This is for all of my busy mommas out there who want to get in shape, but just don’t have the time. The mommas who work all day, tend to the household duties, and the kids. The stay at home mommas who don’t have a spare minute between keeping […]

Postpartum workouts: Moving on to splits.

I gave myself six full weeks after the baby came to rest and recover. The sole amount of activity I did was walks after two weeks, very light tempo runs after 3 weeks, and yoga around the same time. It was decision I had made long before he came. I was going to enjoy my […]

A Food Thing: Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread.

If I thought there was never a dull moment in this household before, having a baby has certainly changed that. Everything has changed, yet it’s all still the same (if that makes any sense to someone who doesn’t have newborn baby fried brain like me). I like to cook. Baking? I have very little patience […]

Foodie Friday: Jamie Eason’s Turkey Meatloaf Muffins.

Two things have changed in my life so far since becoming a mom. The first, it’s always going to take at least an hour for me to get out of the house now. The second? Getting my nutritional needs on target each day is a lot harder now. Eating when I’m hungry isn’t always a […]

#takebackfitspo

Life never really goes as expected. Yet, we never fail to hope, and in some way, expect that it will. The entire time I was trying to get pregnant, and even when that miracle finally came, I had expected to gain a crap ton of weight. On both sides of my family, history shows a […]

Workout Wednesday: Sickness, mold and WOSS.

I’ve been down with a horrible cold for a few days, and while normally, a head cold wouldn’t keep me from working out (I’d just take it easy instead), being pregnant with a head cold is a different story. So last night, when I started feeling pretty dang good, I almost went to the gym. […]

Transformation Tuesday: Not what you expect.

This is a different kind of Transformation Tuesday post. And in it, weight isn’t going to be discussed. First, because for me, it’s never been about the number on the scale. It’s been about what I see in the mirror, how I feel every day. Even before pregnancy. I also hate that once a woman […]

The “Give It To Me” mentality.

Nobody gives it to you, you have to take it. At my nephew’s football game tonight, I realized, I wanted to scrap my initial idea tonight of a running blog, and change it to something like… The “GIVE IT TO ME” mentality of fitness took over my chaotic mind. It was a junior varsity game, […]

Let’s talk ‘bikini bridge’.

My hair is long enough to have to tie back now. But it’s at that stage where you still need a bunch of clips to pin up the back bottom layers so I feel like a four year old struttin’ my stuff at the gym. However, that’s not what makes me a smidge annoyed today. […]

Best Protein Pancakes you’ll ever eat.

My biggest weakness is a tall stack of French toast and a heaping plate of bacon. After changing my eating habits, it became my go-to cheat meal quite a bit. When I was younger, my mother would sometimes make “Brinner” (breakfast for dinner) and I would be on cloud nine. I love pancakes well enough, […]
