Keto, Paleo, Whole30 and Intermittent Fasting

I mentioned in a recent blog post that I wanted to lose weight. I asked if people would be interested in a review of a Keto-Veganish diet or the Whole30, two very popular diets right now. The idea here was that I would try one of these diets and report back to you with my […]

New Year’s Resolution, We Meet Again

I don’t want to write about New Year’s Resolutions yet I find myself coming back to talk about them again and again. The reason likely is because I’m not where I want to be for the first January 1st in a long time. If you went by what the magazines say, even though we hate […]

I’m starting to get to the point where I’m trying to lose the rest of my baby weight. I’m thinking more about my diet than I was a month ago, and I think you’ll notice in my latest What I Eat In A Day video. In the summer, I crave seafood and grilled steak or […]

Is Running Effective When It Comes To Weight Loss?

My new YouTube video this week was titled “Stop Running For Weight Loss.” It’s wasn’t STOP RUNNING. It was simply, stop running for weight loss… Sure the headline may be a little sensationalized but here is are my personal observations¬†reasoning: The leanest I have ever been was when I was strength training more and running […]

Top 5 Reasons You’re Not Seeing Results

Most of the time, our journey (whatever it may be) is not a direct path. We have highs, we have lows and yo-yo in between. I used to never take pictures of my body because I only wanted to capture it in “perfect” or ideal shape. I’m trying now to remember that it’s all about […]

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 […]
