We are so lucky to live in a region where wine production is growing in popularity.  Also lucky for us is that many of those producers are really good!

A Day In Our Lives

A Day In Our Lives

Hi friends!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a day in the life post.  AND I know I haven’t done one since our little squish was born.  So I figured I’d pop in and share a peak into our new lives.

I’m actually going to start this one at 2:00am since that’s when my day sort of started.

2:20 – The dog actually woke me up and I realized Squish hadn’t woken up yet.  Usually he wakes up around 1:00 to eat.  I went to the bathroom and still didn’t hear him so checked to make sure he was still breathing (because when you’re a mom you just do that) and then he woke up.  So he ate for about 20 minutes before going back to sleep.

5:00 – Usually the little guy wakes up around 4:30 to eat but my alarm went off at 5:00 to get ready to go coach and he still hadn’t woken up.  I actually had to wake him to feed him.

5:15 – After he ate a little, I pumped the other side while drinking a little coffee with callagen peptides.

Easing Back into a Fitness Routine After Pregnancy

Hi there!

Hope you all had a great weekend!  We had a low key weekend at home which was great since it was so hot!  We did get out for a quick park playdate with some good friends.

These boys have been buddies since birth and are on their way to Kindergarten!

Happy Wednesday!

Hope you’re all having a great week so far!

Life with a newborn has been an adjustment from the way life used to be.  On most days before Little Squish, I was able to make us a full breakfast, pack snacks to go do whatever we needed to do, come home to make a full lunch, and then cook a full dinner most nights.

Now most my time is spent holding the baby, nursing the baby, and changing the baby.  What time I’m not spending on those things, I’m trying to spend on The Love Nugget.  Which leaves me with very little time to cook meals like I used to.  So now more than ever meal prep is so essential for me.  I’ve been making sure to spend a little time over the weekends to prep some food for the week.  It helps SO much when I have something I can quickly grab and eat immediately or re-heat and eat.

Get Back on Track with the 21 Day Fix plus a Free Cookbook!

Get Back on Track with the 21 Day Fix plus a Free Cookbook!

Hi guys!

Hope you’re having a great day!  I can’t even believe we are almost through July.  I’m actually pretty excited because that means we’re a little closer to my favorite season, Fall!  I know we’re still a ways away but with these 100+ degree temps it’s hard not to daydream about cooler temps :-)

Anyway. I just wanted to pop in to tell you about my nutrition lately.  The past few weeks I’ve been following the 21 Day Fix nutrition plan and it’s been so helpful.  I was eating way too many lactation treats or just treats in general… So I decided to start following the plan to make sure I was getting enough proteins and veggies.  I definitely wasn’t and have noticed since I’ve been following this plan I feel SO much better.
