Guess what day it is?! Day 4 - LEG DAY! I love leg day!! Heavier weights are used because you're working the largest muscles in your body. For me, the sweat just pours off! I sweat the most on leg day, and I love it! For some of you moms out there who have children… Continue reading LIIFT4 – Week 1 Day 4
Woo! Another day done (yesterday!) Day 3 - Shoulders! Boy, this one was a tough one. Four sets of two exercises, with a HIIT component after each set. Talk about a workout!!

183. This number will forever be ingrained in my memory. This was my turning point. I looked down and saw this number on the scale, looked at my naked body in the mirror, and was disgusted. Horrified. Embarrassed. Scared. Rewind a few years. Back when I was 12, my best friend was a super cute… Continue reading My Health Journey

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of wheatgrass? Green goodness? Amazing health benefits? Rabbit food? Grossness? I tend to think of the last one... Wheatgrass is definitely NOT one of my favorite superfoods. However, I have started making a shot of it every day (again...I kind of stopped… Continue reading My Mommy Shots – aka Wheatgrass
I absolutely love sweets. What I love even more than sweets, is the cliche "guilt-free" desserts! Well, this cake is definitely a "guilt-free" dessert/snack/breakfast. This cake has no flour, no refined sugar, no artificial sweeteners, no dairy, and is still super moist. You honestly would have no idea it was made with black beans unless… Continue reading Chocolate (Black Bean) Cake with Chocolate Frosting
