Healthy Meal Delivery? Yes, Please.

Life is a little nuts right now and crazy busy. Time management is something I have become very good at and it’s all about prioritizing what needs to be done.  It’s also about outsourcing and finding little things to make life easier. Seriously, whatever I can do to make things a little easier, I’m in. One thing that I’ve realized takes up more time than I would like is making dinner.  Not only do you have to prepare the meal,…

When it’s Okay to skip that Workout

The other week, I was on a roll with everything going on at the moment.  I had dinners prepared almost every night, had worked out almost every day, done chores around the house, done some stuff for my blog, and gotten some sleep (as much as you can get with a 4 month old). Then… my husband got sick and my daughter decided she wanted to wake up every couple of hours to eat at night.  For a week.  So…

Breastfeeding, Milk Supply, and Running

Since I talked about breastfeeding in my last blog, I figured I should cover another topic about the subject.  And it’s something I have been asked about. Running and breastfeeding. I was initially concerned that once I started running and working out again my milk supply would decrease dramatically.  A lot of your supply depends on calories.  I would be burning a lot more calories so I wasn’t sure what this would do.  I had read that sometimes it can…

What they didn’t tell you – when breastfeeding DOESN’T help you lose weight

The woman’s body is a tricky little thing.  It’s fascinating actually how it works.  I realized this even more after having a baby.  The fact that my body can produce a human is pretty insane.  The fact that I then produce milk to provide for my baby just adds to it.  We all know that breastfeeding provides great benefits to your baby.  And one of the things I heard most while pregnant was how it will get you back to…

Home Workout of the Day

In order to prevent myself from going a little crazy in the house on maternity leave, I do my own workouts at home.  It gets my heart pumping, blood flowing, and makes me feel accomplished for the day.  So from time to time I will share the workouts that I do with you. Below is a recent workout I did at home.  I was actually sore the next day!  The good kind of sore.  Where you feel like you did…

The First Run. Post Pregnancy.

  (I know… a selfie, but I had to get a picture before my first time back in the gym!) It was one of the best and worst runs I have ever had.  The first run after giving birth. I had been running throughout my whole pregnancy and had been feeling great.  I definitely slowed down with each month that passed but I was okay with that.  I got slower, took more walk breaks, and decreased my mileage but I…
