I know a LOT of people are doing the 21 Day Fix program. It’s a GREAT program with an emphasis on eating healthy as well as working out. It was designed by Autumn Calabrese, a celebrity fitness trainer and bikini competition competitor. The program uses a container system to help you measure out how much food you should be eating. It teaches clean eating and portion control. It is a nutrition program that you can maintain long term, not just a crash diet. I LOVE how much food I get to eat with this program. Because I’m nursing,...

One of the question I get more than anything else is “Is it safe to workout and eat healthy while I’m nursing?” I know, most people think that just by nursing you can lose all your baby weight. NOT TRUE. At least not for me. I’m not a doctor, so you should for sure consult with one before doing anything but… studies have shown that it is very much safe to workout and eat healthy while nursing. BUT you don’t want to:  - follow a super restrictive calorie diet. In fact, you need an extra 300-500...

I’ve been away from the blog for awhile. I’ve contemplated quitting it all together, but so much time and love has gone into the making of this blog and building the following that I have that I can’t let myself do that. It’s been about 6 months since Traci or I have blogged consistently. There are a few reasons for this.  1. I had a baby. She is now 4 months old and is seriously the cutest thing ever. She’s such an easy baby and fits into our family perfectly. It’s hard to believe that we are now...

Something I really want to share with you on Monday is small ways to save money {that really add up!} I stay at home with my kiddos, and a lot of times really don’t want to make money, or have a job, I want to spend time with my kids! So I made a decision if I couldn’t...

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puerto Rico, The All-Star Island for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. My husband and I have been married for five years this September. We are hoping to go on a trip, just the two of us. We've looked into a couple different places, but the one I am leaning towards is Puerto Rico! There are a few things that make me really want to visit Puerto Rico. For one, no passport required! It's like foreign travel, but without all the hassle of leaving the country....

We have made a goal to pay off all of our student loans in two and a half years. We currently have a little over $40,000 in loans. When we first started looking at that number and how we would possibly be able to pay it off in 2.5 years, we were EXTREMELY overwhelmed and pretty sure it was impossible. BUT. We want those loans paid off before we buy a house. We want to be completely out of debt before we add mountains of debt from a mortgage. So, we started looking at numbers and doing some math. Right now, my husband makes a little less...

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. As a busy of two, almost three kids, trying to make some money from home while still being completely involved in my kids lives, I have to do some serious planning to stay organized. If I don’t make goals and to do lists, days will go by when I’m lucky if the kids get dressed and dinner gets made. I HAVE to stay organized, or my life is in chaos. Especially since I am in the late stages of pregnancy. My mind is mush. I forget everything I don’t write down. Which...
