Fit Foodie: Meal Rotation

After much deliberation with the hubby, we developed a meal rotation that we can be satisfied with repeating.  It is a six week rotation with 4 set recipes within each week.  This allows us to have room for take out when a day is too crazy, leftovers if the fridge is filling up and new […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
