Hollie – Get Fit Realistically!

Hollie – Get Fit Realistically!

Recently, I wrote a healthy-baking swap guide for my friend Hollie’s blog, over at Muscles and Munchkins!  She is super awesome – a mom, fitness instructor, marathon runner, and a blogger!  She also has a lot of awesome tips and a fantastic perspective on how to be fit and healthy, the right way. 

Now, it’s a fact.  We can’t argue this.  We should always try to find a balance between what we eat and what we do physically to be healthy.  It’s really never one or the other!  So Hollie is here to help you all get a sense of how you can stick to your physical fitness goals, no matter who you are.  Listen up!

Lucy - How I Overcame Lifelong Habits to Become Stong & Confident!

Lucy - How I Overcame Lifelong Habits to Become Stong & Confident!

Whenever I read about a transformation story I am so inspired.  To see someone else overcome personal hardships to make their own life better, I feel like I can do so much better, too!  Most of the time, though, I’m reading a story about someone I don’t know, and I have no idea how long that transformation will even last for them. 

Like, those #TransformationTuesday Instagram pics?  Who knows if they really managed that on their own, in eight weeks, and have really kept their weight problem/addiction/ other personal issue away for a year.  It’s still inspiring to see the change, of course, but recently I have had the opportunity to see some major changes in other people that have completely blown me away.  I know that these people have some advice and tips we would all love to hear!

Mother’s Day Recipe Roundup

Mother’s Day Recipe Roundup

Dear Mom,

I think that even though you deserve thanks and appreciation every day, Mother’s Day is one day to make extra sure you hear it.  So this is a letter from me to you, letting you know how much you really mean to me.  Hopefully the fact that everyone else on the internet can read it, too, makes you proud for having such a thoroughly unashamed daughter.  Or maybe you’ll at least laugh a little.

By the way: Don't forget about the fun giveaway I'm hosting from now through May 12! It's super easy to enter.
