Curbing Your Sweet Tooth on Whole 30

Curbing Your Sweet Tooth on Whole 30

Like so many people, I’ve been on a quest to watch what I’m eating this year and really concentrate on taking care of my body. I would venture to guess that getting healthier is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, and my goals for the year are no different.

March Mindset

March Mindset

Over the past few weeks, I’ve realized I’ll be turning 35 this year – in less than 8 months. Something about that just kind of hit me. 35 is the official midpoint of my thirties, and before I know it, 40 will be around the corner. In thinking about it, I realized that much of my life is exactly the way I’ve wanted it – I have a husband who is my partner in every way, two healthy girls that adore each other, a home of our own, and amazing friends, even if they are far away. I also realized…

I Wish I had Weight Watchers as a Teenager.

I Wish I had Weight Watchers as a Teenager.

On Saturday in my Weight Watchers meeting, my leader mentioned in passing the news that Weight Watchers was going to start offering free memberships to teens 13-17. I didn’t think much of it other than an “oh, that’s a cool idea.” That is, until tonight when I started seeing the backlash – specifically, this article. While I understand her points and her opinion – I 100% respectfully disagree with her. If you go read the article, she immediately launches into a conversation about body shaming and its effect on children. And I have to wonder. Has she ever been to…

Cheesy Italian Turkey Sausage Frittata

Cheesy Italian Turkey Sausage Frittata

   I am always looking for easy, filling breakfasts. I’m a big proponent of fueling up at the start of your day… and if you know me, you know I adore breakfast food. In fact, I could eat breakfast food any time of day and never get tired of it. Even though I enjoy the classics, it’s nice to come up with new ideas too. We’re always trying to get more whole foods into our diet – that allows us to indulge just a little bit while still keeping with a healthy lifestyle. I’ll be honest – the motivation for…

WW Freestyle: First Impressions

WW Freestyle: First Impressions

Today, after hearing about the changes all week long, we finally got the new Weight Watchers Freestyle program. I’ve heard good things, grumblings, and more, but honestly? I’m really glad the changes are here. One of the things I love about Weight Watchers releasing program changes at the end of the year is that it gives me a bit of a reset before the new year begins. Because let’s face it – EVERYONE is going to hope on the weight loss train come January 1, and I’m happy to be just a little bit ahead of it. So, first impressions…

Tracking Sleep Habits with the Sleeptracker

Tracking Sleep Habits with the Sleeptracker

I think we can all agree as moms that sleep is a hot commodity, right? I for one never seem to get enough of it. I could say it’s the kids, but honestly? My girls both sleep through the night (watch, now they’ll randomly start waking up again now that I’ve said that). The truth is that as a mom, I’ve got so many things to do… and sleep is always pushed to the bottom of that list.

How I Get More Veggies into my Family’s Diet

How I Get More Veggies into my Family’s Diet

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. I feel like we all battle with our families about food, but never as much as we battle about vegetables. It isn’t even just the kids either – for me, it’s my husband too! Before we got married, my husband told me two things that I’ve since changed his mind on: first, that he didn’t do leftovers (that changed pretty much immediately), and that he didn’t eat vegetables because they “tasted like the ground.” Yes, he actually said that. Since then, I’ve been slowly introducing…

5 Things You Can Do Now to Protect Your Baby’s Health

  I feel like our health is one of those things that when we have it, we take it for granted, but when we don’t, we’re always trying to chase it. Protecting our health is something that should be ingrained into our everyday life, starting with infancy. It’s so important to instill healthy habits in our kids and help them keep them for life. I’ve shared my top 10 healthy habits to instill in your little ones below, but let me know if there are any you would add! Get regular checkups. This includes a well-check at the pediatrician or…

Weight Watchers Saturday – 8.19.17

Weight Watchers Saturday – 8.19.17

Yep, another Saturday Weight Watchers post. I’m going to be doing these as much as I can to keep up with my progress and talk a little bit about what our meeting topic was this week. Here we go! To be honest, I had a bit of a rough week. It started with a family dinner at my sister’s house… and she made cheesecake. I had a hard time recovering from the weekend, and all the candy around at work didn’t help. There are literally candy bowls all over my office – and sweets are my weakness. I ended up…
