What I Eat In A Day!

So many of you love to follow our home renovations (thank you!) and I equally get as much interest (usually from the ladies) about what I eat to stay healthy. I’ve shared many times how I was a tomboy growing up and loved all sports! Off to college I went, put on a bunch of weight and then had to find what worked for me in terms of eating well, moving my body and feeling…

Everything we’re watching, reading and listening to while riding out #Coronavirus at home!

Hi friends! Sharing some of our FAVORITE THINGS while we’re all at home riding out this crazy/scary/WTF pandemic. Hope you all are healthy and happy…here’s how we’re passing the time. In addition to playing with my lipstick and making himself a “tiger” we are currently watching the documentary series WONDERSTRUCK on BBC America. It’s kind of like their Planet Earth series. The beauty they capture around the world is just mind blowing! Henry loves it…

In my last post, I talked about the new workout routine my sister, Kelly, and I are on. Today, we’re going to talk about healthy eating with AHN dietitian, Kelsey Hutter! Kelsey is an amazing woman who suffers from auto-immune disorders. In her early 20s, she realized how much “what she ate” impacted her symptoms and how she felt, and that’s why she became a registered dietitian. Kelsey answered the most popular questions my followers…

I know all of you saw my Instagram and Facebook posts about the new fitness journey my sister and I are going on together! We were initially excited just to do this for ourselves, but then we saw the outpouring of messages and comments we got from all of you saying how motivating and inspiring it is and now it feels bigger than us! Our trainer’s name is JB and we work with him 2…

How I Stay Healthy During The Holidays!

Here’s my philosophy about the holidays when it comes to food/parties/weight gain…you don’t want to indulge so much and get so off track that you start the new year not feeling your best. For me, being mindful of what I’m eating, how much and getting in some exercise keeps me feeling good, keeps my weight in check and then I kick off 2020 in the best possible place! I’M NOT A DOCTOR, but here are…

Body After Baby!

I get lots of questions about my fitness routine during and after my pregnancy…especially how I got back into shape after I had Henry. I’m totally fine with those questions, I even welcome them, because I can be pretty vain and I was VERY CONCERNED about gaining weight during pregnancy. There are women stronger and more evolved than I, but I’m one of those women who struggles with body image and places a good chunk…

You know your husband loves you…

When he delays his basement floor hatch project to come to your Saturday morning spin class. Mark is a road rider. He’s never taken an indoor cycling class. We rocked out during our 60 minutes on the bike with jumps, push-ups, hills and sprints. Mama-to-be Kelly Belly killed it while Mark struggled to finish. Not gonna lie…I was surprised that my hubby can lift a hundred pounds of drywall but barely get through my spin…

Spinning right along

My spinning instructor training is going really well. I’m sure many of you don’t care, and you can stop reading HERE. My training sessions happen in the early mornings. That means I drink as much coffee as I can in my car. Right now, I’m training with two studios…one in Shadyside and one in Mt. Lebanon. (They share my love of sweat) Tired and sore don’t even begin to explain how I’m feeling, but the…
