What Happened When I Didn’t Weight Myself for a Month

(Image via Goodhousekeeping.com) A lot of people question whether or not to weigh themselves regularly.  Some people believe that you should know what your weight is all the time while others believe you should just trust how your clothes feel and go based on that.  I’ve heard some people even throw out their scales.  As I usually believe with most things in life, I think moderation is key so I’m somewhere in the middle. I definitely think that you should…

New favorite drink: discount included!

Hydration is such a huge part of living a healthy lifestyle.  It’s a necessary component to staying healthy, fueling a workout before and after, and helping you feel (and work) your best. I get asked about hydration a lot.  Friends of mine don’t know what they should be drinking before, during, and after workouts.  I also hear many people complain that water is boring.  While I don’t agree with that necessarily, I can understand where they are coming from. There…

Check-In: Six Months Post Baby

Six months.  Our little girl is already 6 months old.  I can’t believe it.  It seems like it’s gone so fast but at the same time, so slow. If you would have asked me 6 months ago where I thought I would be at this point, it’s pretty laughable.  I would tell you that my baby would be completely sleeping through the night, I would be fitting back in my favorite pair of jeans, and would have being Super Mom…

So many people think that if you want to be fit it means you can’t enjoy food or that you don’t eat much. I’m here to tell you that’s not true and you MUST eat to be healthy and fit!

Christmas Belly!

Christmas Belly Do you have it?  I sure feel like I do!  I found this on Pinterest and just had to share as it seemed hilarious and appropriate for this blog post:     I had a wonderful Christmas with my husband’s family in his hometown.  It was such a great time and I was reminded about what a great family I married into.  We had a lot of fun visiting with more family, playing games, talking, and of course…

Holiday Party Fun, Punishment, and Recovery

I absolutely love the holidays.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday but I love everything about Christmas as well – the music, the tree, the movies, the smiles, the lights, being with family, and so many other things that this wonderful holiday time brings.  Along with those things usually come some holiday parties.  For me these holiday parties generally come in the form of work. My husband and I at our first holiday party: Last weekend was my company holiday party and…
