Running, Playground Strength Training & Lunges, oh my!

I started off my long weekend right with some serious exercise!  Afterall, I have some new goals to hit.  And in order to hit them, I need to focus on healthy clean eating and moving MORE! Since I was by myself with Babycakes, I didn't get many pictures of ME doing the exercises, but I did get a lot of cute shots of Babycakes copycatting mommy :)  Here she is trying slightly elevated pushups ---& ...

I feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty...{Reward Photoshoot}!

If you missed my Rewards and New Goals post from earlier this week, you should go back and read it!  I talk about the importance of setting goals and share some great tips on how to do it.   Part of what I discuss is why setting specific rewards (non-food related of course!!) can help keep you motivated and give you something tangible to work towards.           I recently hit one of my major goals - ...

Life, Running, + 7 pounds of Blueberries

These are my new sneaks. --> I love my purple shoes.  I love my bright purple laces even more.  Dear hubby and I went to REI this weekend because I had a giftcard AND a 20% off coupon- and this is what I walked out with.  These running shoes are made by Brooks and are made of that super breathable mesh material.  Supposedly they're the most "cushy" of the mesh shoes though, says the shoe saleslady.  I took them out for an innaugural run on Sunday, and loved them!  If I am going to be serious (which I am!!) about those new goals I set, new sneaks, consistent runs, and less baked goods will do me good!

Go-To Meal: Mango Salsa Chicken

Happy Monday y'all :)  As I mentioned on Facebook this weekend - (are you a fan yet?  If not you should be! Click here.) I spent a lot of time writing a guest post for a friend about my struggle to get pregnant.  I poured a lot of myself into the post, and I can't wait to share it with you later in the week. ...

Goals Round 2 + A trip down Memory Lane

I was never much of a goal-setter, I think mostly because I didn't want to fail.  If I didn't set any, I couldn't disappoint myself!  BUT, what I came to realize is that if you don't set goals and aren't working towards where you want to be, it's so much easier to get off track.  Like I said in my first goals post, I didn't intentionally gain 80 pounds.  It sortof "just happened."  That sou ...
