Baby Shower

Just like that, our baby shower has come and gone! I can’t believe it’s already over and I’m 34 weeks pregnant (and 1 day) as I’m typing this. I had a lot of anxiety leading up to the shower, but thankfully it all turned out absolutely perfect. The week started on January 6th when one of my besties Sahara came into town to stay with us! She is also the photographer behind most of my professional photographs, and she is...

New Years Resolutions That DON’T Focus On Your Body

New Years resolutions always seem to revolve around body and aesthetics. I always see things like: get fit, eat healthier, lose x amount of pounds, transform my body, etc. Having fitness goals and goals to make changes to your physique is GREAT, don’t get me wrong. I think having those goals are awesome, no matter what time of year it is. Obviously, that is part of my business and career – I help people reach their fitness goals. Whether it’s...

Beginners Guide to Getting Fit

Getting “fit” is a very broad topic because fit is different for everyone. Everyone has different goals, different fitness levels, different starting points, and more. One persons goal may be specific such as increasing their squat. Another may be aesthetic goals such as getting ripped or growing muscle. Another person’s goal may be to love themselves more and work on their mental health. Maybe someone’s goal is to just make small changes such as walking more throughout the day or...

My Birth Plan

At first I said I was having no birth plan and just winging it like I do the rest of my life. While that is still true to some extent, I realized having a tentative plan can help. As we all know, childbirth is never convenient or expected. It can happen a month early, or it can happen 2 weeks later than expected. You can go in hoping for a natural birth and end up needing a c-section. You just never...

Week 27 & 28 Pregnancy Update

HOW FAR ALONG? 27 and 28 weeks pregnant! DUE DATE… February 26, 2018. HOWS Mama DOING? Good! Just bigger belly over all and feeling it. I definitely feel pregnant. The first thing people look at is my belly when I’m in public. It cracks me up and I love it. People have also started rubbing and touching it asking when I’m due, I oddly don’t mind that, though! Week 27: had a really bad case of round ligament pain one...

Holiday Gift Guide for Him

Why… Why is shopping for men SO.DANG.HARD? I’ve always had trouble with it, but it’s even harder when your man buys things he wants/needs when he wants or needs them. I tried to come up with a variety of different gifts, so I split it up into fitness, food, and just general. Wow, I kind of suck. Although, I think it will help at least a little bit! For the Fitness Lover: Foam Roller – this is a must for stretching...

Healthy Protein-Packed Banana Bread

YOU GUYS. This is probably one of my favorite recipes I’ve ever made. For some reason, I always want to bake with bananas. I buy a shit-ton of naners, eat some normally, freeze some, and then let some sit so that they get super brown and ripe. Then, it’s time to bake! Banana bread reminds me of my childhood, especially around this time of the year. Growing up right around the holidays, our neighbor would bake everyone on the block...

6 Months Pregnant Update: Weeks 23-27

My sixth month of pregnancy has come and gone JUST.LIKE.THAT. I am currently in my 7th month now, as I turn 28 weeks pregnant on December 4th, 2017. Part of me feels as if pregnancy is going so slow, but the other part feels like it’s flying by. Weird how that works, huh? Before I know it, I’ll be going into labor and meeting my little man! INSANE! It has been a crazy month with moving, traveling, holiday’s, etc. so...

Holiday Gift Guide for Her

I love buying gifts for other people, but for some reason I also find it extremely challenging. Luckily if you feel that way too, I’M HERE TO SAVE YOU! Cue: a holiday gift guide for her. Shopping for gifts is always about the specific person you’re shopping for. Every person has different interests, different needs, different styles, and more. So, I came up with gift ideas for various types of women. Don’t worry, the men’s gift guide is coming soon...

Easy Arugula Pasta Salad

One random night cold pasta salad popped into my mind and thought it sounded like the best thing in the entire world #pregnancyproblems. So I HAD to make one… and here we are. Matthew and I were in Colorado for Thanksgiving, so we ate out a bit as well. It seemed like arugula kept popping up in our dishes at different restaurants and I forgot how much I loved the taste of it. I kept saying “we need to get...
