Running the Popcorn Panic

Running After A Long Break… Taking The First Step

Not long before the start of my sophomore year of high school, my friend Nathalie showed up on my doorstep and asked me to join the cross country team. They needed enough people to finish the city championship to claim a team. For some reason I agreed. Over the next three years I was part of […]

Stroller Selfie

Is #StrollerSelfie A Thing? Weekly Workouts

These days I feel like there is a hashtag for everything. You know, #tbt (Throwback Thursday) #mcm (Man Crush Monday), #TransformationTuesday, etc. There should be one for #StrollerSelfie. You know, all of those moms and dads out there working to get active with their kids share a selfie on social media. What’s the point of […]

Newborn Essentials... The Second Time Around

Newborn Essentials… The Second Time Around

When Little Man was born we bought most of what was recommended. That bottle warmer (that barely got used), the swing (which has since gone missing…oops), the bottle brush, etc. With Baby B we tried to avoid buying too much since we already had more than we needed already. As expected, things are different this […]

A Whole Lot Of Neon

A Whole Lot of Neon & Another Week of Walking

This week was one of those weeks where it was a roller coaster. Sunday kicked off great. I got a good walk in dressed in a whole lot of neon and was ready to take on the week. After Sunday things got a little rocky. By Friday I declared the week over and continued eating […]

Sleep Like A Champion & Other Tricks For A Healthy Lifestyle

Over the last three years I’ve learned a lot about balancing attempting to balance a healthy lifestyle. When my son was about a year old I decided it was time to take my health into my own hands.

Summer Nights

The End of Summer Nights For The Year & Weekly Workouts

Summer officially ended this week. Overall I felt like we missed out a lot on our favorite evening activity of our summer nights…walking. With the humidity and overall problems with the heat while pregnant I spent most evenings at home sleeping or sitting in the air conditioning.  The last three weeks we’ve spent as many […]

Fall Friday Favorites

Fall Friday Favorites With Summer Weather Hanging Around

As of yesterday (at 10:21am) it is finally Fall. I’m still sad to see Summer leave us as we missed out on a lot of it. For now I will enjoy every ounce of Fall that I can before heading back to work at the end of October. In celebration of Fall I have a […]

Things People Aren’t Afraid To Say To Pregnant Women

One of the joys of being pregnant is that it means people have no filter when it comes to talking to you. Something about seeing a giant basketball sized stomach means that people are free to tell you anything that is on their mind. There are so many things people aren’t afraid to say to pregnant […]

NBC - This Is Us

Three TV Shows I Can’t Wait For This Fall

Normally I don’t get too excited about Fall TV Shows. I’ve always been a “watch it when the series it over” kind of person except for a few select shows. Being patient is something I’m not that great at and if spoilers are available I’ll usually cave and look them up. There three tv shows I […]

Slightly Different View On Our Walks

Post Baby Getting Back Into Shape

I am a few weeks out from baby and while I’m not able to start running or working out yet I’m trying to get a little bit of exercise in. Hitting my daily step goal would be nice, but honestly it hasn’t happened much at all. I decided to bring back my weekly workout blogs […]
