Back to the Basics

After being cleared to exercise last Monday, I was so excited to get back to a consistent workout routine! I told my husband that he needed to be ready to watch M when he got home because I was going to the gym. He came home, I got ready to go, hopped onto the treadmill and… walked. I seriously underestimated how hard exercise would be....

Things They Don’t Tell You || Labor and Delivery + Post-Partum Care

Part one of this series talked about Things They Don’t Tell You about Pregnancy. In part two of this series, I want to talk a little bit about labor, delivery, and post-partum care. These parts of pregnancy and birth aren’t discussed nearly enough. Even if you buy books on pregnancy, they either don’t cover this part or you’ve stopped reading by the time you get...

Things They Don’t Tell You || Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an amazing time in life. It’s pretty amazing that the human body can grow another human in 10 months. Looking back, it’s insane to me that the 3mm dot we saw on an ultrasound screen back in March grew to be my Maddie. You hear about all the joys of pregnancy often. An adorable belly, little kicks from the inside, longer hair (thanks, prenatals!),...

Weekends and Walks

This weekend was a good one for me. Since having M home, I’ve had one trip out of the house without her. Other than that one trip, I’ve spent every day either at home with her or out running errands with her and Mike. It’s not a bad thing and it has become a [very welcome] new normal, but have a baby doesn’t mean I...

Half Marathons and Memories

It’s been almost 2 weeks since Maddie came home from the NICU. It hasn’t been easy, but we’re definitely getting into a groove! I’m not getting too comfortable, though, because I’m going to have to get into a new routine when I get closer to going back to work. I have no idea what that schedule is going to look like, but I’m sure we’ll...

What’s Your Excuse?

During the first half of my pregnancy, I worked out a decent amount. I would go to the gym 2 or 3 times a week for an hour or so. It paled in comparison to my usual 4 to 6 times a week but I was pregnant and exhausted so I let myself take an extra day or so off. I posted pictures and updates...

Life Update // Baby is Here!

Wow! I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post. Last time I posted, I was 24 weeks pregnant. I was nervous about my glucose test, I had gained 20 lbs in 24 weeks, and my blood pressure was great. So much changed very shortly after that post. If you don’t want to read the full story, here’s the cliff notes of my...

For the Home // Nursery Progress

I recently posted on my Facebook page that I wanted to start adding more than just fitness and food posts to the blog. I asked you guys what you wanted to see and got some great feedback! Some of the things you can look forward to are more posts about DIY things (home projects, crafts, and organization), fashion (things I love, deals I’ve found, etc.),...

21 Week Bump Update!

I’m officially over half way through with pregnancy! Even if Baby MAC comes at 42 weeks (please, Jesus, NO), I’m halfway. The first trimester went by so slowly, but I feel like the past few weeks have flown by!  I can’t wait to see what the next few months have in store! Here’s this week’s bump update! How far along? 21 weeks! Total weight gain:  I forgot to...
