Own your skin. Own your excuses.

Let’s talk about honesty and taking responsibility for where we are at currently with our health. We all have health and fitness goals  whether it be to lose the baby weight, lose weight in general, gain weight or muscle, slim down for a wedding, or perhaps just eat healthier to feel better. Before you dive into […]

7 Months Postpartum + Making Changes

Image 1

Today I am 7 months postpartum. Really, he is already 7 months?! This baby stage has seemed really long some days and to quick other days. I love seeing his little legs kick in times of joy, hear him say mama in the wee hours of the night and see that spark in his eyes when his […]

Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are amazing! The cream cheese def makes them a hit. I found some dairy free cream cheese and it is really good. I put it on anything I can. It’s fantastic and taste just as good as the real stuff. Not all dairy free items can taste as great and I still have […]

Crockpot Blueberry French Toast

Image

Over the weekend I made some french toast in the crockpot. The good thing is it only was a handful of ingredients and simple to assemble. The bad part was that it took a few hours to cook so unless you were up at 5am (thanks little guy) it won’t be ready first thing in […]

Labels & Health Math

Image 1

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. […]
