3 Benefits of Working Out as a Family

If you've been trying to work out, eat healthier and change your lifestyle to that of something better, then it seems like we're living a life of similarity. Just within the past few weeks, I've put the junk food down and started working my body to it's max six days a week. (I'm doing Insanity, incase you're wondering!) So, I definitely know how hard it can be when you're trying to maintain a family, a household, a budget and change your lifestyle all within a day's work. It's hard. ...more

5 Reasons Why Athletes Make Awesome Moms

Time's up. Now that my 6-week postpartum hiatus is over, I have officially re-entered the world of sore muscles, sweat (not sweats—those never left the picture), and tennis shoes. Oh, yeah! There is just something thrilling about the feeling of sweating when it is NOT related to postpartum hormones wreaking havoc as they try to re-balance and causing me to sweat profusely at awkward times. ...more
Great points. I too am almost six weeks out and itching to get back to where I was. Started ...more

10 "I Can't Workout Today" Excuses

Positive Female Relationships - Finding a Place of Encouragement

Female relationships can be complicated things. We live in a society that encourages us to compete with other women, to do whatever it takes to come out on top, and begs us to ask ourselves, "what's in it for us?"We're the selfie generation.

Then, on Monday, I didn't go either. I did intend to go, but because I'd been hacked (post coming soon), a bank trip was necessary. Once that was over and dinner was eaten, I just didn't go. The timing was off....more

Gym Update #2

This week, we've all settled into a routine. After dinner, there's a little time for us all to hang out before Baby Boy and I head to the gym. Hun has noted the time for me and even asked if I were going this week. I know Baby Boy going with me to the gym helps Hun to get a few things done while we're gone, but his asking is supportive to me. Hun also does the dishes each night, without my asking, as a way to help and provide support for me working out again....more
