Food, Fitness, Motherhood, And Balance

Hi, all! I just put the baby down for a nap, and realized that I hadn’t posted in a while. Mom life is wonderful, but oh so busy! Trying to balance time for myself, while taking care of a very active 9 month old can be hard, but I am managing!

Working out has always been an outlet for me, and I try to set aside time each day to do something active. I love getting to the gym and taking classes, and try to get there a few times a week. The other days, I do something at home (YouTube videos, elliptical, barre). My mom comes to my place as often as she can and let’s me sneak out to the gym! This past week I was able to try a new class and loved it. It is called ringside and it is a boxing inspired class. I was sore for days after!

I also went to spinning which is a staple class for me.

I used to workout because I was obsessed with how I looked, but now I do it because it makes me happy.

The same goes for food. I used to worry so much about what I ate, and it consumed me. I now have a healthy relationship with food, and can indulge without guilt, while still eating well most of the time. This past week I had some good meals…

Whole Foods salad bar.

Chickpea pasta with meat sauce.



Our weekend was busy, but so nice! On Saturday, we celebrated my niece’s second birthday. Baby K had fun with all of her cousins. Also, how cute are these sesame street cupcakes???

On Sunday, we went to my husband’s hometown to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family!

It was so nice to be with everyone!

This upcoming week will be full of cleaning and getting ready to host Thanksgiving at our house! I have a lot to do, but am so excited to have everyone here.

On that note, I am off to clean.

Have a great week, everyone!

With love,

  2. I’m so proud, so many women out there who are trying to balance their lifestyle and they turn to cut out the most important time of themselves (exercising). This encourages me as young women to be organized.
