Self care isn’t selfish

Self care isn’t selfish

I can remember the very first time that I felt insecure in my body. I was 12. I had started to develop breasts and suddenly a few boys in my class started snapping my bra. My dad later mentioned that I should stand up tall (instead of hunching over) and suck in my stomach a little. It was the very first time I remember feeling just…. Not good in my own body.   This continued over and over thr ...[Read More]

Monday Motivation

Monday Motivation

If you’re like me, maybe you have found that your motivation comes in cycles. I think we all have phases every now and again when we lose motivation and our desire to workout. During these phases I have learned that it is important to focus and fall back on my habits. Your habits will keep you going. For example, if you don’t feel like going to the gym but have established a habit or routine of go ...[Read More]

How To Bounce Back (And Stop Peeing Your Pants) Post Pregnancy

How To Bounce Back (And Stop Peeing Your Pants) Post Pregnancy

I love this testimonial from blogger, The Fit Fork. Being a marathon runner and in amazing shape, her testimonial about diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction shows that these postpartum conditions doesn't just effect one body type. Our bodies do beautiful things before, during, and after pregnancy, but not all postpartum conditions are "normal." If you are experiencing back pain, incontinen ...[Read More]

Healthy Taco Bowl Recipe

Healthy Taco Bowl Recipe

Does anyone else love taco bowls? I do! They are so quick, tasty, easy, and you can make them low-carb if you need to. This recipe is a heck of a lot cheaper in ingredients then what you pay at Chipotle, and I can whip this up in 3-4 minutes.  I usually use either grilled chicken that I cook in bulk or ground turkey breast that I season with taco seasoning. I make this often for lunch or a mid-mor ...[Read More]

Outdoor Workout With Your Kids

Outdoor Workout With Your Kids

I used to get so frustrated when I would try to workout from home and my kids would interrupt me. I remember so many times when I would just quit in the middle of my workout, throw my hands up in defeat, and think to myself “What’s the point? I can’t even finish one set without the baby wanting to be held.” Somewhere along the way I realized that it’s ok if I have to take breaks because the kids n ...[Read More]

MRM Whey Protein With PROBIOTICS

If you have followed me for awhile you know how much I love MRM products. I like using supplements that are natural, whole and beneficial to my body. I prefer to get as much of my protein and other nutrients from whole foods as possible. While this is what I aim for I also find it helpful to supplement my protein intake with protein shakes. What I love so much about MRM’s whey protein is that it's ...[Read More]

Are You Getting Enough Water?

Are You Getting Enough Water?

Making sure you get enough water each day is so important for your overall health! Did you know your body is almost 60% water? Over half of our body composition is water and many of us drink little to no water each day. So, how do you know if you’re drinking enough water? A good rule of thumb is to take your body weight, divide it in half, and that is how many ounces of water you should drink per ...[Read More]
