Be-You-tifully Fit: Can we take a minute? 

Can we?  Can we just take one minute to say hello to abdominal lines?  They have been sporadically visiting me for the last 2 months while on the ketogenic diet but for the last week… Things have been getting pretty serious!   I will admit that part of me still cringes posting pictures like this. […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Go harder

Lately I have been wrestling around with some ideas and plans for the present/future.  I am entering a point that I feel like I’ve done a lot that I have set out to do, so what now?  Time to pull in and write it all down.  Brainstorm all that there is left to do.  What […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: We broke up.

I have had a long lasting early morning date with my scale.  It is not always a happy go lucky date.  There have been plenty times that I have cussed it out and stormed away.  After scrolling through instagram and reading a couple of memes, I decided it was time.  Mr. Scale & I have […]
