Fit Foodie: PIZZA & TACOS! 

There are a few things in life that I do not ever want to live without and ketogenic eating did not look good for these two staples of life…Pizza & Tacos.  I grew up in a house where we ate pizza every Friday.  It was our thing!  My dad would come home from work and […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Overcoming Fear

  The good, bad and the ugly about pushing passed fears… You’re growing!  You’re terrified!  You’re sure you look out of place and are crazy self conscious.  That pretty much sums up the last seven weeks of triathlon training.  Thankfully I have a super knowledgeable and kind coach (IG @theunbreakableangel)  that is spoon feeding me […]

Fit Foodie: Trying to make this all work

I love the ketogenic way of eating.  My kids, however, are not totally sold on it yet.  I knew that this was going to be a challenge.  It was when I first started changing our ways over 4 years ago to cleaner eating.  The two bite rule is still in full effect.  You take two […]

Be-You-tifully Fit : Measurements Day & 40 Days Keto! 

Survey says…  FAT BURNING BEAST = AWESOMENESS! I have been struggling to really make any sort of progress for the last two years.  In those two years, I have done some amazing things off of my bucket list BUT none of them were really helping the overall fitness goals I have for myself.  Also, all […]
