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 […]

Fit Foodie gone keto!

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 […]

Fit Foodie: No Spend Month Cooking

This month has been a little tricky.  We have been trying to find what to do with random ingredients left over from previous unmade menu plans.  It definitely was not easy at first.  A lot of these meals are not our normal meals.  I have not included recipes on all of them because we made […]

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 […]

Fit Foodie: The summer crazies

With all of the kids back together under one roof, I am hitting the summer crazy point.  We are so very close to school time and goodness does our crazy high grocery budget need it to happen like now.  I swear that all four kids have hit a growth spurt at the same time and […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Mind games

So I am at the gym and I am finally feeling a little more comfortable lifting in front of other people until this woman next to me was staring at me.  I was doing my Stronglifts 5×5 routine doing 65 lb overhead presses.  At first I didn’t think much of it but after the 5 sets, […]

4 Year Fitversary!

First and foremost…  I need to be honest.  I have been avoiding writing this post like the plague.  This day used to mean so much to me when I was exploring the new world of fitness and losing weight.  Now this just seems like another day.  But that is only to me.  It dawned on […]

Fit Foodie: Exploring new proteins

Now that both the husband & I are training for fall races, we are trying out some new proteins and cleaner recipes.  Recently, it has been a lot of either low ingredient whey proteins or plant based proteins.  I am trying to see how each of them do when being used in recipes for regular […]
