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 […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: It is everywhere!

Lately I have seen many acts of kindness…towards one’s self.  I am a firm believer in watching the for a lesson in all I see.  After the second or third viewing, I began to ponder if this was a lesson meant for me.  Pretty sure that is a big fat YES.  It is so hard […]

Fit Foodie: HELP! All the food must be mine.

I am struggling.  Struggling not to eat everything I see.  Granted the heavy weightlifting and running has a lot to do with that BUT it also has a lot to do with the time of year.  I love all things fresh, grilled, sweet, cheesy, garlicky…food.  Every year I go through this.  Maybe it is how […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Even he needs a little help

This past week the hubby and I were sitting down talking about what we have going on for the fall/winter time.  The kids’ activities’ schedules have already begun to come in and my training plan is already chosen.  He has been holding back doing things he has wanted due to work and timing.  I could […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Results are in!

I finished the She Sweats Run Builder program! It was 12 weeks of lifting, HIIT and different running workouts. For me, this was the first actual weight lifting program I have fully completed. I really enjoyed it! The mix up of things to do each day and differences in segments was refreshing. After being in […]

Fit Foodie: Meal prep for one, please

I’ve been wondering about attempting different foods lately BUT I have also been wondering about packing it all away differently too.  Generally, I pack everything away single serving to make it easier for my husband but I despise how quickly that fills the sink after only one day of him & I eating it.  I […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Memorial Day

The hubby & I challenged ourselves this morning with the Murph WOD to honor the fallen.  No vests or body armor and modifications for the pull-ups & push-ups BUT I completed it.  Honestly, it scared me looking at the upper body needed for this.  I can and have done 300 squats in a day before. […]

Fit Foodie: Cleaning House

Time to clean house!  All of these odd ingredients need to be used!  It is driving me batty.  This past week I sat down and decided that enough was enough.  The refrigerator looked empty again which triggered the kids to ask repeatedly for everything that was not in the refrigerator. (I know you know exactly […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Marathon Planning

Marathon planning…  finding a plan is like finding just the right shoe.  Is it going to work?  Is it going to fit?  Is it going to be reasonable for what I want to get out of it?  All you get from it is what ifs.  Others may recommend plans but they may not fit you […]
