SAHM Work…I need Ideas!

We are back in the flatland and back to life as usual. Anxiously awaiting our next visit up north (in July). My clients resume tonight and I cannot wait to get back into the gym! I am ready to a good weight lifting workout. I always feel so motivated after leaving the gym. It helps…

My Dirty Laundry

I am really good at talking about what I am good at. My last post, Let Me Intimidate You, focused on child nutrition. Something I am very passionate about. I can go on for hours talking about kids’ nutrition. It is easy for me. I am good at nutrition and it is a good habit….

Let Me Intimidate You

I take a lot of crap over feeding my child good food. I get laughed at, questioned (constantly), and always told I am depriving my child. Depriving her of treats, sweets, cereals, etc. I mean come one, she is just a kid, let her have some fun! Right? Can we please just stop this already!…

Motivated in May

It is 4:40 a.m. and my alarm is ringing. Starting off a new day for me. The last thing I want to do is get out of bed but I do it. I have to be at the gym soon to train a client then back home before baby wakes. Every single time when I…

Nourishing A Toddler

Feeding a toddler is by far one of the hardest parts of raising them. Each meal time ends in a big mess. Half the food on the floor, Some on their shirts, some on their seat, and maybe a little in there tummy. They like mac n’ cheese, cookies, crackers, and pretty much anything else…

Spring Goals, Update, All about where I am at!

So, it has been a long time since I have updated you all on my fitness, goals, or anything else for the matter. I have been writing a lot of advice, family help, an motivating posts lately. I am definitely ok with that since that is much easier for me to do! I can talk…

Re-Motivating

It has been a day or two (or week) since I have posted and to be honest I have been struggling with motivation to write. Or rather topics to write about. I did my ‘healthy’ family series and then kind of got a little lost. It is very easy for me to write about the…

Spring into Fresh Food

“Real food grows, rots dies. Real food doesn’t need an ingredient label. Real food doesn’t make claims” -Michael Pollan This time of year I am ready for nothing more than swimsuits, garden veggies, and farm stand fruit. WE have had a few very nice ‘teaser’ days here which make the wait for consistent gardening weather…

Steps to Healthy Family #4: Let Grandma Come to Town

This past week, my mom came to visit. We took a trip to Dallas for the American Rodeo and spent the week at our house riding the horses, coloring, playing stickers, and doing anything else our daughter insisted of Grandma. She has Grandma wrapped around her finger. It didn’t take but two minutes of my…

Steps to a Healthier Family #3

This one is simple: Never Give up. There are going to be days when dinner is not a balanced meal, when breakfast is leftover dinner, and when coffee is the only thing getting you through it. Don’t sweat it. I find that I have a few things that always get done (healthy snacks, water bottles,…

No Bake Cookies (The Healthy way)

“Health is the first form of wealth. Invest in yours by eating whole, real foods” My family may avoid the candy aisle, but our food is never boring! Here is one of our favorites, No bake cookies! (not the best picture) These are refined sugar free, (can be) gluten free, dairy free and absolutely delicious!…
