Chasing down my Fit: Postpartum Week One

It’s that time…that time that I pushed for throughout this entire pregnancy.  Baby Hannah is here and now it’s back to my journey.  I must admit that I was not always the best with my choices BUT I am not always the best with my choices throughout life in general.  If I really want a […]

Runiversary!

September 19th marks a very special day for me. It is my runiversary. The day that I decided to stop telling myself that I would never be a runner. As children, we grow up learning and believing there are simply things that we can and cannot do. If we say something enough, we start to […]

Nesting: Crocheted chevron blanket with flowers

I have never been a crochet person. I find knitting to be much easier, but I also do not like to feel defeated by something. When I was poking around on Pinterest, I found this pattern http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/rickrack-rainbow-baby-blanket and started asking my mom (the master crochet woman in my life) how difficult she thought it’d be. To […]

Fit Prego: Pain & Gain

Baby bellies! I’m sure going to miss this but I may be too busy enjoying some new baby smell. The weight though…I won’t miss monitoring the gain!  It hasn’t been easy for me. Never has been. I’ve always stepped into a pregnancy already obese or overweight. I’ve never been allowed to gain a lot. I […]

Fit Prego: You might wonder…

You might be asking…why this picture?  Well these jeans are the very same ones I continue to talk about.  They are my Vera Wang size 14 capris.  Of course, they no longer go over any part of the belly but the rest of my body has remained the same!  I did it!  I did it […]
