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...

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...

Friday Favorites: Black Friday Edition

Black Friday is never something I’ve really participated in. I hate shopping and I hate the mall, so shopping at the mall on the busiest day of the year is a thing I see in nightmares. However, there is ONLINE shopping that I do enjoy and am more likely to participate in. #introvertproblems There are a few companies I’m associated with that are having some incredible Black Friday deals, so I figured I’d share them with you all. Yes, I...

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

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,...
