I’m forever a fitness fanatic because I love feeling strong and energized. Exercise not only keeps me healthy, it lifts my spirits and helps me relax during busy, stressful days.

How I’m Staying in Shape & What I’m Eating

Hi friends!  How was your weekend?  We enjoyed lovely low temps and even got to dine on the patio, which is such a rarity in Houston.  We’re usually sweating our butts off, so when we get patio weather, we definitely take advantage of it!

I also ate out sooo much, which I definitely enjoyed, but now I’m ready to get back to it!

How I’m Staying in Shape & What I’m Eating

I’m so thankful y’all encouraged me to do another fitness challenge in September- I really needed it.  If you don’t recall, we challenged ourselves to workout for 20 minutes a day,

FREE 30 Day Fitness Challenge

FREE 30 Day Fitness Challenge

Hi friends! I’m sooo pumped for today!  I’ve been thinking about it ALL weekend and may have even jumped the gun by getting in two walks to the park and meal prepping meals for the week!

Today, it’s back by popular demand — our FREE 30-day fitness challenge!  I need it, you need it, and we all want to look and feel better!  Quarantine life has taken it’s toll on our mental and physical states – I’ve gained about 6 pounds and can barely button my jeans!

So let’s do this!

The challenge officially starts tomorrow,

Thank you to JCPenney & ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post.

Hello friends and happy Friday! How was your week?  It was a long one here.  But, I have some good news to report!

I’m so thrilled and thankful to share that we raised $2,395 to provide meals to healthcare workers and staff.  While most of us remain in the comfort and safety of our homes, our frontline heroes are working hard and risking their own lives caring for patients.  We wanted to bless them and show our appreciation with hot, delicious meals so they had one less thing to think about while selflessly doing their jobs.

Hi friends! Who’s happy for Friday?!  #raisesbothhands

It’s always right about this time of year when there’s only 11 days until Christmas and I start freaking out.  You too?  No matter how good my intentions, it seems like something always falls through the cracks or goes disastrously wrong.  Did you see our picture with Santa this year?! Ha!  You just have to laugh!

Well, one thing is for sure, if I take it back to basics – sleep,

Just the Best Sales | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Activewear

Hello friend and happy Wednesday!  Midway through the week is always a good feeling! I’ve been knee deep in sales since last week and then Monday with the Amazon Prime sale, but yesterday was all about the kids.  We played, went to WalMart looking for toys, and then hung around the house making forts, playing Busytown 500 times and also had Ali-Shaun’s daughter over for a bit. Listening to little girl giggles makes me smile inside. ♥ 

I swear this summer is going too fast and I have that dreaded fear that I can’t slow time and in just a few weeks Jordan will be in PreK3.

This & That | February

This & That | February

Good morning friends! Welcome to a new week! I got so much done on Sunday and was ready to start the week fresh, then wouldn’t you know, I overslept on Monday! Ug.  Oh well, it happens to the best of us, so I just had to start my workout late (Jordan jumped in which was actually really cute), and then start the day a little later.  Now, I’m all showered and feeling much better.  Monday, we’re turning this day around!

It’s time for a good old fashioned This & That post.  I’ll be sharing a few new things I found on Amazon (see more Amazon fashion hauls here),

How to Reach Your Fitness Goals

Good morning friends! Did you watch the Superbowl last night?  Can I confess something?  I didn’t watch much- it was just on in the background.  Are you horrified?!  Are we still friends? I hope so.  Instead, I was finishing this post, addressing Jordan’s birthday invites, and getting ready for the week ahead.

I wanted to be on my game since we’re starting Week 1 of Get Fit Done!  If you haven’t joined us already, it’s not too late.  You can get the Get Fit Done Guide here. And if you aren’t ready to join just yet, but still want to do a fitness challenge,

Something about December and the holidays causes all rational food behavior to go out the window and it’s suddenly gimme everything I want and ALL the sugary desserts.  I 100% went overboard on my eating in December and woke up on January 1 feeling lethargic, bloated, and heavy. Happy new year!  Well, that’s actually right because I know for sure that even when we get off course or indulge, we can take control of our lives and health at any moment, starting RIGHT NOW!

Everything is a choice and once you commit to making healthy decisions,

Honey We’re Healthy Fitness eBook Coming in January!

Good morning friends! I’m waking up so very excited to announce something BIG with you here!

Especially in this last year, I’ve had a deep desire to CREATE something of meaningful value and spread my positive message of Take Care of You further.  Those of you that have been with me for long, know that my dear Grandma Nola is responsible for helping me realize that taking care of ourselves isn’t selfish. It’s necessary and a form of self love and self respect.  What a gift she gave to me!

HWH Fitness Challenge Week #5 | All Natural Deodorant

Hello friends! What a whirlwind of a weekend!  Coming home from traveling meant lots of catching up on household things and getting ready for the new week ahead.

TAYLOR SWIFT CONCERT

On Saturday night, I got to see Taylor Swift in concert with Shannon and Trisa and it was such a treat!  Her show was amazing and we danced all night like we were 16 years old.  Only problem with that is that I felt about 100 the next day!  I slept til 10am!  It was actually the sweetest thing at the concert seeing all the little girls there sooo excited to be at a Taylor Swift concert.

HWH Fitness Challenge Week #4 | TRAMPOLINE WORKOUT AT HOME

Good morning!

My emotions are running high this morning because we are traveling to California to visit Grandma Nola today. I’m so excited to see her and for her to meet Jordan for the first time.  I think Grandma will see a mini Megan in Jordan and that the 91 and 2-year-old will really hit it off.  I just started bawling typing this, but it’s just because there’s so much love there.  Grandma Nola has been such an influential person in my life and I’m so grateful for her. I’m going to try very hard to stay in the present moment while we’re there and soak it all in.
