Hi everyone! I am back and hoping to get back to writing more frequently. There are many more challenges with two kids but I want to find time to write again especially when I get the all clear to start workouts again. It’s been 5 weeks since I had my son and we had an […]

Well officially we have 9 weeks or less depending on when little guy decides to come. I had a fantastic Labor Day Weekend because I got to go swimming twice! Not just bob around in the pool with my daughter, like usual, but actually swim laps! Thanks to my mom for coming down and letting me […]

We definitely live in a world where we now pay more attention to labels more than ever. Some people trust the front of the product/box when it says low fat, whole grains, healthy, etc and that is being “aware enough” to them. Some study the nutritional label and look at the sugars, proteins, fats, etc. […]

Be Your Own Motivation!

As a growing pregnant lady it’s hard not to notice how big I am getting with each growing day. I don’t step on the scale much anymore and when I do it’s to record my weight with the corresponding gestational week and note it in my journal to see how it compares to my first […]

3 Day Potty Training: Part 2


Here is my breakdown of how each day went. Since I am writing this on day 6 I can tell you how the following days after the initial 3 day training went as well. The subsequent days is the one thing I wish the book had addressed a bit more of. DAY 1: We had 18 […]

3 Day Potty Training: Part 1

This last month has been such a whirlwind of traveling to two different states and basically being on the go constantly. With our second baby due in 4 short months I really wanted to get our first kiddo (26 months old now) in her new room, new bed and get her potty trained. While her […]

Pregnant Couch Potato

I have had many people ask me why I am even working out pregnant when I should just kick back and enjoy this time and not worry about gym time. I know for some pregnancy is a time to lay back and veg out but for me it’s just not my lifestyle. First off I […]
