Fit & Frugal: No Spend Success!!!

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 […]

New commitment.

2012 was the beginning.  It was tons of research and struggling to find what works. 2013 was the surprise.  After getting on my way with weight loss, Hannah decided to join our family. 2014 was the return.  In the beginning of the year, I was injured and needed to take some time out to rest […]

A girl and her planner

In an effort to ease the anxiety of the chaos…  this last year I moved to a better system, a full planner.  The planners from the stores were nice but they were simply too basic.  I have a lot to juggle and I needed a central place for my everything.  I invested in a beautiful […]

Fit Foodie: Honestly.

Honestly…I haven’t been feeling like much of a “Fit Foodie” lately.  I have been without my inspiration or spark with cooking.  I’m not sure where I lost it but if you find it, I’d sure like it back.  Cooking has not been that fun for me.  We’ve been trying new recipes lately and it all […]

Fit Foodie: The Menu Plan.

I’m starting the year off differently.  I need to restart my body.  I need to rededicate myself.  So as well as bringing Jump Start 2014 Fitness One Week Challenge  back for 2015, I will be posting my 7 day menu plan for hubby, myself and the family.  The kids will vary their foods during the day but […]
