4th of July Weekend // Orlando!

I hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July weekend! We went out of town to visit some friends in Orlando and we had so much fun! Both of us had Friday off of work, so we left on Friday morning. On the way out of town, we stopped at a new-ish gas station near our house. Enmark has rebranded their gas station...

Date Night // Weekly Recap

It’s been one of the weirdest/best/worst weeks. Seriously! The good:  First and foremost, we got to see our baby and we found out we are having a little girl!  Baby has a name, but we’re keeping it under wraps for now so I’ll just call her Baby MAC (her initials- NO, her name is not Mackenzie). It was so great to see her pretty face and...

18 Week Bump Update // Thoughts on Weight Gain

Happy hump day! Across the internet, there’s a “thing” for pregnant women called “Hump Day Bump Day.” Wednesdays are the days pregnant ladies post their bump photos. Wednesday also happens to be the day that my weeks start over! Now that I’m almost halfway through pregnancy (what?!), I want to start participating in Hump Day Bump Day (HDBD) on the blog. I’ll also use it...

The Best At Home Workouts!

Sometimes, it’s really hard to get to the gym. Maybe the hours aren’t ideal some days. Maybe you’re a stay at home parents and you’re not sure if you can stay at the gym for an hour. Or maybe the weather gets ridiculous (Northern Winters and Southern Summers, I’m looking at you) and working out outside is nearly impossible. What do you do on those...

The Truth Behind a Fit Pregnancy

Some women have pregnancies that give them energy to workout often, eat healthy, sleep well, and gain minimal weight. I am learning that I am not one of those women. How many Pinterest Pins have been pinned about “staying active while pregnant” or “working out with baby?” Probably a zillion. I’ve looked through a lot of those and, honestly, I am having such a hard...

Big News!

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been much less active. Both on the blog and in the gym. I haven’t quit working out and I haven’t given up on my blog. The truth is: I’m pregnant! Hooray for big news! The past couple of weeks (more like month) have been really hard for me. I’ve been sick nearly every day, I’ve been exhausted (like,...

Protein Packed Berry Smoothie

I don’t know about where you live, but it is starting to warm up quickly here in Savannah! It’s consistently been 80 degrees or warmer which means summer is right around the corner! It gets VERY hot here during the summer. 90+ degrees with 70%+ humidity. It rains almost every afternoon (rains is an understatement– it torrentially downpours) which increases the humidity even more. It...

18 Weight Loss Truths

Incorporating exercise into your routine is HARD at first. Running feels nearly impossible at the beginning. Completing a workout is extremely rewarding. You know how many calories are in pretty much anything. Calorie “sticker shock” is a real thing. Shopping for groceries is hard. (I will not buy Oreos. I will not buy Oreos.) Shopping for clothes is fun…(smaller sizes, YES) Shopping for clothes can...

Currently // April

It’s APRIL?! Where the heck did January, February, and March go?! I can’t believe it’s already April. I’m excited that warm weather comes with April. That means more time spent outside with friends and family! Since it’s the first Wednesday of the Month, it’s time for “Currently…” The first Wednesday of each month, I participate in a link-up with other blogs and we write about...
