Want To “Stay On Track” Over Thanksgiving? READ THIS.

  With Thanksgiving in a few days, this is the time I always see tons of articles about how to stay on track over the holiday. I get the intention of these, as tons of people are typically searching google for ways to stay on track with their fitness and nutrition goals in hopes of not ruining all their progress and gain a ton of fat over the holiday’s. Not only that, but as an online coach and fitness influencer,...

Friday Favorites

Hi friends! I wanted to share some favorites from this week. I love reading these on other blogs, because it’s fun to find out some happenings, places, things, products, and more that other people are enjoying! Friday Favorites Favorite Skincare: Olay Regenerist Luminous Brightening Foaming Cleanser Cream. My skin has been AWFUL during pregnancy. I usually have really great skin normally, so it’s super weird to me to be dealing with skin stuff. I decided to switch my face wash and...

What Being In Love Feels Like

A few weeks ago, I was thinking about how it feels to be in love. Being in love is one of the most incredible feelings in the entire world. When I was trying to explain to myself what it feels like, I felt as if I could literally write a novel. I was curious… how do other people explain the feeling? So, I asked twitter: “Random but I’m super curious, how would you personally explain what being in love feels...

22 Week Pregnancy Update

22 WEEKS PREGNANT Baby is the size of a spaghetti squash! WHAAAT. That seems HUGE to me! Look at what the baby looks like according to the baby center app I use. HE LOOKS LIKE A REAL HUMAN. It’s wild to me. Symptoms: Anxiety has been bad again. It definitely goes in and out – some days are fine, others are more anxiety focused. My belly has gotten harder and definitely bigger as well! I’m peeing SOOO much more. I know...

Thank You, Body.

I sit here and look at my pregnant body and get disappointed…. Disappointed in myself for treating this body so badly for so many years. All it has ever done for me was love me and try to keep me alive. There were times that I wasn’t nourishing it properly and not feeding it. Times where I pushed it past it’s limits with exercise and ran it into the ground. Times where I looked in the mirror and picked apart...

21 Week Pregnancy Update

21 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE Wow, time is flying. This post is actually a bit late because I’m almost 23 weeks as I’m posting this. I’m working on it people, I’m growing a human – cut me some slack 😉 This week was a big one! We had our 20-week anatomy scan, which was obviously about a week after I hit 20 weeks. First thing is first, we got confirmation that our baby is indeed a BOY! So exciting. I was...

First Trimester Pregnancy Must-Haves

When I think of the first trimester of this pregnancy, I think of sickness, bed, and being very unproductive. I was one of those pregnant women who got hit with “all-day sickness” pretty bad and it lasted from week 6 up until around week 12. From there, it was on and off and certainly not as bad. I have no idea who decided to call it morning sickness, because that thing lasted ALL day for me. On the really bad...

First Half of Pregnancy Update

As of Monday October 9, 2017… I am 20 weeks pregnant! Which means I’m about halfway through my pregnancy. Time is seriously flying – it felt like it was just yesterday that I found out I was pregnant and I was hyperventilating in my bathroom by myself.. ha! I had all intentions of doing weekly updates, but that obviously didn’t happen. I figured I would just update you all on the first half, and then maybe do weekly from here...

Behind the Blogger; Part 2

If you read part 1 of behind the blogger, lets just jump right into part 2, shall we? I think it’s fun to explain some more of what makes me, me. This is Brittany – raw and unedited. 11. Sometimes I write poetry. I’ve always been way too nervous to post them (I am certainly my own worst critic), but I really love to write it. It makes me happy. With that being said, I may start a poetry series here...

Healthy Snack Ideas

It seems as if everyone loves snacking. I’ll be honest, I’m in the minority here because I am not a huge snacker. I typically prefer to follow intermittent fasting and eat bigger meals, less often. However, since getting pregnant, snacking definitely seems to be occurring more frequently since bigger meals don’t sit too well in my stomach anymore. Many times I’ll see “weight loss” articles and such giving advice that if you’re trying to lose weight you should cut out...
