Fit Foodie:  So much prepping… 

…there are so many containers everywhere.  This prepping business is serious.  I really thought that it wouldn’t be too much more work than I normally do BUT I forgot one key factor…I don’t just prep meals for myself.  Oops.  #Familyofsixproblems  I am still fine tuning it all but I think I have found a sweet […]

Fit Foodie: From 6 to 3

Who would’ve known that it would be ridiculously hard going from our cooking for the 6 of us to my husband, baby bear and myself???  I have way too much food leftover and planned way too many meals.  Gosh… I thought I had gotten better with this estimation but my veggies going bad in the […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Uphill Dreams

There is a time and place for everything. I started my fitness journey to lose weight.  Back then I wasn’t ready for 7 day a week training plans filled with 3 different sports and resistance training.  I was ready for the scale to tell me I did a good job not eating that doughnut yesterday. […]

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 […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: We broke up.

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: 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 […]
