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, […]

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 […]
