How I Got Back To My Pre Baby Weight

Six days ago, my baby boy turned 9 months. This once was a fitness blog and while I still make time regularly to exercise, my first priority is him. I set an unrealistic goal to get back to my pre-baby body. Then I pushed it back, and pushed it back some more. These deadline extensions were […]

It’s Going Down For Real

Like many of you, for me the week after Labor Day is like the first week of January. Time to get your shit together. Time to stop drinking during the week, eating ice cream sundaes just because and making better choices for your body all around. It’s not a weight thing anymore for me. It’s […]

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. […]

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 […]

5 Surprising Ways To Nutritiously Satisfy A Sweet Tooth After Dinner

I’ve always had a sweet tooth but I believe I’ve trained myself to want something sweet after I eat a meal. I wish I hadn’t and I’ve tried too many times to count to train myself to NOT want sugar after dinner but it’s easier said than done. Instead, I’ve found surprisingly healthy ways to […]

Vegan Back To School Lunch Ideas

With fall approaching, the flexible summer schedules start to go back to normal and that often means that packing a lunch becomes a part of your daily routine once again. Whether you’re a student, a teacher or indulged too much this summer, nothing beats having […]

Paleo Friendly Snack Ideas

As I sit here typing this post eating carrots and edamame hummus, I’m glad I do not follow the Paleo diet. You can’t have soy products (edamame) or legumes (chickpeas) both of which are in my hummus. You can’t even have an apple with peanut butter because peanuts too are considered a legume. I do […]
