Strawberry Cantaloupe Popsicles

As you all know, Mini Me’s favorite treat is a popsicle! We are constantly making popsicles in our house because I think she’s one just about every day. Before you say “Whoa!  I’d never let my kids eat a popsicle every day!”, let me preface my statement by saying she’s basically eating pulverized fruit in our house.  We make all of our popsicles from fresh fruit and nothing else – not even sugar! Two of our favorite fruits are strawberries and…

Is Technology the New Eating Disorder?

As humans we are addictive by nature. Whether your addiction is working out, playing video games, eating, or drugs, the same receptors cause those states of euphoria.  From the time we are born, we battle against these addictive personality traits. Like some of you, I’ve spent my lifetime battling my food addiction. But, what if I told you there was an even more dangerous addiction lingering in our society today. When was the last time you binged? I don’ mean…

Naked Nutrition Review + Giveaway

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, however I did receive a sample for my review. All opinions are my own. You all know I’m a peanut butter addict. I talk about it all the time.

Crab Cauli-Mac and Cheese

When in Maryland….. Steamed crabs with Old Bay and a Jumbo Lump crab cake are the two foods most associated with Maryland. When I first move to Maryland after graduate school, I couldn’t understand The Hubby’s families love for picking crabs. It’s just too much work for me. To this day, I probably don’t pick more than 4-5 crabs at a crab feast. I know, sacrilegious in these parts! However, I have been known to throw down on an amazing…

8 Tips for Training Safe This Summer

Adjusting to the change of seasons can be grueling for a runner. When temperatures change quickly, it can be dangerous since the body hasn’t had a change to adjust yet. The Hubby experienced this first hand on Memorial Day Weekend. We’ve had a very cool spring here in Maryland. We really haven’t had a spring season at all. We traveled to Ohio for the holiday weekend for the Medina Half Marathon. That Saturday was the hottest day all weekend. By 6:30am,…

Using Soul-Inspired Journaling to Enhance Your Personal Development

I’ve been journaling since I was a little girl. It wasn’t always in the form of a beautiful journal, but it was still journaling. Sometimes it took the form of notes to friends, folded into paper shapes and flicked across the room behind the teachers back. Sometimes it was in small notebooks that were leftover at the end of the school year. But, regardless of the form it took, I have always used writing as a creative outlet to express…

Road Trip! Keeping on Target with Fitness and Nutrition Goals

When you’re traveling, your focus on your fitness and nutrition goals can become derailed as fast as you can lose a stare down contest with one of your kiddos. We all set out to keep up our workout routine and eat clean, but we need to cut ourselves a little slack and realize we are on vacation. So, unless you’re like two weeks out from a bodybuilding contest, loosen the reigns a little and employ that 80/20 rule for a week. This…
