Pool Day Toddler Essentials: The Have To Haves

Pool Day Toddler Essentials: The Have To Haves

My toddler and I have been completely obsessed with going to the pool this summer. He is finally big enough to really know what is going on and LOVES going to the pool. He is a total water baby. I swear if I would let him stay all day long he would go until he couldn’t stand up anymore. What this means is days where we have been at the pool for HOURS! We have even been making fun of…

Roasted Veggie Taco Salad Kick Up Taco Tuesday!

Roasted Veggie Taco Salad Kick Up Taco Tuesday!

Hi guys! I hope you’re having an awesome week. It’s been crazy around my house. We had some horrible storms over the weekend and were without power for a couple days.

That means last night I was…

Finding a way to cope with healthy weight gain while pregnant is absolutely essential to a happy pregnancy. Weight…

4 Tips for Raising Kids Who Love Nature

4 Tips for Raising Kids Who Love Nature

Whenever I’m talking to my clients who have children and they ask about ways to get their children more active I always tell them you have to make fitness fun. Kids nine times out of ten do not want to go to the gym and get on the treadmill and they don’t need to! My number one way for getting kids into fitness is getting them outside! It’s hard to sit on the couch and watch TV whenever you’re outside…

Ultimate Camping Checklist (With a Baby/Toddler)

Ultimate Camping Checklist (With a Baby/Toddler)

The first time we ever went camping with my son James was incredibly intimidating and to be honest I was a bit terrified. James was already not that great of a sleeper and needed to be attached to me at pretty much all times and I assumed that our weekend was going to be absolute hell on Earth. To my surprise, everything actually went relatively smoothly. I attribute this success to my incessant need to be way over prepared for…

Why I HATE Meal Prepping and What I do instead

Everywhere I look on social media the big thing seems to be meal prepping. Meal prep is when you make all of your meals for the week so all you have to do is grab your food and go. This can be an an awesome thing for some people’s fitness plans but I personally HATE IT! Why I hate Meal Prepping! I’m way way way too unpredictable! There is absolutely no way I will ever be able to eat the…
