Be-You-Tifully Fit: HR Train

Recently I finished reading both Keto Clarity and Primal Endurance.  I am not sure why I have decided to finally take the direction of a low carbohydrate lifestyle.  Honestly I love carbs…lot.  They are lyfe but they don’t love me like I love them.  Through my curiosity I read both of these books and fell […]

Fit Foodie gone keto!

No matter how much I looked at not removing grains and sugar…  I could not seem to walk away from the thoughts of ketogenic/primal benefits for athletes.   One-Pan Pesto Chicken and Veggies Cranberry Sour Cream Blender Muffins Chocolate Butter Fat Bombs Cream Cheese Pancakes (Low Carb and Gluten Free) Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes | Fall […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: The end of the race season

The fall race season is not a big love of mine.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love the races that take place in this season, but I do not like the North Carolina summer start of training.  Just like the two years prior, this season burnt me.  Give me 50 degree weather and no humidity…I […]

Fit Foodie: Refocus.

I’m keto curious.  Over the last 4 and a half years, I have been pushing hard at finding the best me I can be.  Our family’s eating habits had been revamped into healthier and more balanced meals.  All of the recipes began with Skinnytaste and focused on a runner’s diet.  The runner’s diet for my […]

Be-You-tifully Fit:  1 year of Gym Time

It’s been a year since I decided to join one of the local gyms.  It was so hard working out at home with two littles around.  The same workout at the gym would take me almost an hour longer at home.  Honestly, I would also find a million reasons to not do it too.  When […]

Fit Foodie: New Apps (Oops…that’s an old one)

Be-You-tifully Fit: 4 Years in Stroller Warriors

10/19/2012…  I didn’t think I was a runner.  I was just a girl who dreamed of being one.  Honestly,  I was scared to join.  Terrified even.  Here were a big group of women who have been there &  done that and then there was me…  I was a girl that barely ran the 1 mile […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: What doesn’t serve you

It’s been a year since I decided to seriously start weight lifting.  After training for the Marine Corps Marathon & the Old Glory 50K, I was absolutely burnt out and defeated.  I had run a total of 2,400 miles last year.  My body did not mind the mileage but with the other pressures of life […]
