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 & Keto) Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes | Fall In […]

Well my dear friends…it was a SUCCESS!!!  You may have seen my post in the beginning of September regarding our family attempting a no spend month (http://nicolemichelles.com/2016/09/07/fit-frugal-no-spend-september/).  I must be honest in telling you it was not easy!!!!  In the end, we saved almost $400 in the month of September and were able to pay off […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Fit Family

It’s pretty amazing seeing the effort you put into finding a healthy & whole way of life…in your children. We recently participated in the Sgt Lucas Pyeatt Run to Remember with 2nd Radio Battalion.  The kids decided to run the kids 1K race and to my surprise…Aiden won!  He took off pretty fast and I […]

I did it!  750 MILES!  My goal for the year was to complete my 2014 total mileage of 750 before I completed 250 miles in 2014 which wasn’t until August!  I’m a bit ahead of schedule.  AH!!!  It’s coconuts I tell you!  I’m most definitely on track for my NYE resolution of 1500 miles for […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: “Athletic Build”

THANK GOODNESS IT’S TIME FOR SHORTS!  Yes, you heard me right.  I’ve come to realize something.  I’m officially an athletic build.  The kind way of saying your leg muscles are dictating that you must go up a size, switch out of the skinny leg fit or just to stick with leggings.  Well shoot.  I’ve been […]

Fit Foodie: Cabinet cleaning aka wing it.

Whole 30 approved Burrito Bowl http://www.katrina-runs.com/whole-30-day-20-pass-the-cheese We changed the recipe a little to fit us a little more.  Ground turkey, white kidney beans and melted cheese.  Came out tasty!

Be-You-Tifully Fit: It’s here…no time to turn back

I’d like to think of myself as humble and honest.  I like challenges that push me to fear.  I love to see who I am at the other side of it all.  I say this here because I begin to wonder things before the physical tests ahead.  They humble you.  They make you honest.  They […]

A girl and her planner: New Addition

I like pretty things.  I like organizing.  I am doomed.  In the world of planning, they are all pretty. As I posted before…  I have a long list of planners in my house.  Not out of necessity or hoarding.  Last year was the year of adjustment.  After using a little planner I picked up from […]

Fit Foodie: My New Setup

My new setup…  In my search for a solution to simply being uninspired by the recipes of late, I decided to try going about this in a new way for us.  We’ve never been a rotation menu planning house.  It’s always been pick and pair recipes that I have been wanting to try off of […]

Fit Foodie: Making it work

We’ve changed our recent plans to only have more effort recipes on the days that marathon training or school were not overwhelming.  I have to say that we are handling the juggle well.  The balance is actually refreshing.  We’ve been able to maintain the portioned leftovers for the hubby to take to work for lunch […]
