How I Find Motivation To Workout & Summer Workout Inspiration

Since becoming a mom, lots of things have gotten shorter in time. Trips to the grocery store, showers, sleep at night, dinner and meal prep. It’s funny how my workouts used to be an hour long and now I’m happy to get 30 minutes. Part of my workout inspiration is honestly working off the summer […]

My 5 Go To Breakfasts As a New Mom

I can remember having a 100 calorie English muffin for breakfast with spray butter at 22 years of age. Oh how the times have changed. My breakfasts are now at least 250 calories and made up of nutrient dense foods. Still breastfeeding Tommy in the middle of the night, I wake up starving! On top […]

Postpartum Weight Loss Journey

On my blog, I’ve been documenting my weight loss since giving birth. However, on YouTube, I was waiting until I had lost all the weight. That hasn’t happened but it was time to publish the video. We started shooting updates 3 weeks postpartum. Then we shot another around 11 weeks and then at 19 weeks. […]

update 5/24 7 pm: After being contacted by the Instagram star mentioned in this post, I’ve decided to remove their photo and likeness out of respect. They were not aware of the PR company pitching them to new mom bloggers like myself and is embarrassed. This is a case of bad PR but I still […]

Weight Loss Update and My Afternoon Pick Me Ups

Tommy is officially 4 months old this week. I am still 4-7 lbs heavier than my pre-baby weight but I no longer have a race to train for. This is the first time in 4 years that I have been without a fitness commitment or photo shoot scheduled. It’s a weird feeling. Typically, I’m training […]

How I Lose 10 lbs in 6 Weeks

Summer is 6 weeks away sorta… In New England, I don’t know why Memorial Day is considered the summer when really it starts the weekend of the 4th of July, right? At least that’s when I usually first wear a bathing suit or attempt to go in the ocean. However, 6 weeks is a good […]

Postpartum Update: Eats + Workouts + Birthday Fun

So I decided to start dieting on Monday and by dieting, I mean I only had one glass of wine and didn’t have any cupcakes or cookies. Success! Small steps one at a time. My original goal was to be back at my pre baby weight by my birthday. That was March 23rd and I’m […]

My Post Pregnancy Diet Plans + $100 Kohl’s Giveaway

Now that Tommy has arrived, I’ve started thinking about getting back to my pre pregnancy diet. I think pregnancy taught me a lot about what my body wants and needs to maintain a healthy, happy and confident weight. I found that when I ate what I wanted and craved, my body told me when I […]

If I’ve learned anything since becoming pregnant, it’s that fitness is not about weight loss, it’s not about burning 1000 calories, and it’s NOT about bikini bodies. I created my 2016 January challenge to encourage you to move your body most days of the week, getting out of your comfort zone to see changes and […]

15-minute Lean + Strong Bridal Circuit Workout

I’ve got a crazy day tomorrow and will be heading down to Charlottesville, Virginia for one of my best friends weddings! I’m so excited to explore the little town, see my college friends and celebrate Allison’s union. I’ve heard and seen so many good things about C’ville. The town has a reputation online for being […]
