Butt Toning Walking Treadmill Workout

Treadmill Workout

Thanks to last weekends escapades in labor & delivery I won’t be doing this workout anytime soon, but up until last week it had become one of my favorites! I have always loved walking, but since becoming pregnant I’ve found new ways to make walking workouts a bit more challenging. I tried ruck marching, and […]

We Spent Father’s Day in Labor and Delivery


Hindsight is 20/20. Looking back on my weekend, and the pregnancy funk I was in, I think my body was trying to tell me something.

28 Week Pregnancy Update


Hello, third trimester! It’s been a month since my last pregnancy update. Not a whole lot has changed, aside from getting a bit bigger! I’ve reached the point where I’ve had a few people say, “you look so big!” or, “he’s going to be huge!” when I tell them I’m ‘only 28 weeks’ pregnant. The […]

We Are Moving To …


We just found out on Tuesday and I am still in shock. I’ve always complained about the heat in the South but … come on! As of now we don’t know for sure when we will be moving but it will likely be in September, only a few short days/weeks after baby boy is born. Logistically, […]
