Fit Foodie: Nom nom

I think the thought that you can’t make old recipes when searching for healthier foods is just silly!  We gather up all the recipes that we have and menu plan.  The key is the ingredients.  It always has been.  Make the substitutions!  Find how to make it still yummy and lighter!  We had a pretty tasty…nom […]

A girl and her planner

In an effort to ease the anxiety of the chaos…  this last year I moved to a better system, a full planner.  The planners from the stores were nice but they were simply too basic.  I have a lot to juggle and I needed a central place for my everything.  I invested in a beautiful […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Loss for words

So I have been thinking about writing this blog for the last week and half…but every time I really went to sit something else would come to mind and I’d walk the other way.  I don’t know if that’s a normal motion that I was going through or if there’s reason behind it.  I’ve begun […]

Fit Foodie: I’m back!!!!

ABFOL’s 31 day purge

I decided that it was time to re-organize!  The holidays and marathon training plus all else in life completely wrecked my system I had going.  We have never been completely unorganized but the clutter had definitely built up!

Be-You-Tifully Fit: 2015

2015. 2014. 2013. 2012. It has been a journey.  After this last year though, I have noticed something else begin to change.  The “old me” has begun to fade from my memory.  She would have never woke up in the morning and thought the things that I think now.  She didn’t brush her hair the […]

Fit Foodie: Honestly.

Honestly…I haven’t been feeling like much of a “Fit Foodie” lately.  I have been without my inspiration or spark with cooking.  I’m not sure where I lost it but if you find it, I’d sure like it back.  Cooking has not been that fun for me.  We’ve been trying new recipes lately and it all […]

Isabel turns 3!

Isabel is 3! This little girl.  I have to tell you this little one surely has been a blessing in our lives.  We have had many more moments of laughter.  She came into our world three years ago in California.  She loves to play dress up and puddle splash.  Christmas time was a big one […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Stay Focused!

I will not lie to you.  2014 was a hard year.  It was a year of discovery and improvement.  Throughout this year I have stumbled and gotten back up again.  Trimmed off a bit of weight (40 lbs) but battled with the mental side of it all.  It definitely has taken me a good bit […]
