If you’re eating boring old chicken breasts all the time, you’re doing it wrong. Switching it up and doing chicken thighs every once in a while makes all the difference, I kid you not. If you’re macro counters like us, it’s not many extra grams of fat (2 grams per 4 ounces is all!) and the flavor you get from thighs verses breasts is just to die for. I’m going to prove it to you today with this new recipe I’m sharing. This Sesame Orange Chicken is full of flavor and a guaranteed hit.
I hope your new year is off to a great start! Whatever your goals are this year, I sincerely hope you reach them. I haven’t yet written down my goals for the year, but it’s on my to-do list right after I finish this new Green Chili Egg Casserole recipe post! Although I don’t write all my goals and ideas down, I know putting pen to paper and visualizing goals really helps keep them within reach.
This little girl turned 2 years old a few weeks ago and I just still can’t even believe it. My baby grew into a toddler way too quickly! If I think about it too much I could just cry! I’m going to be THAT mom when she goes to kindergarten bawling my eyes out wondering where the time went. I’m not sure if my emotions run high with her because she’s a girl, or just because she’s the baby. Maybe it’s a combination of the two? I’ll go with that! Anyway, we just adore our little Makenna! Daddy snapped this cute photo of us so I had to share.

Next in line behind Archer’s egg tutorial this week, I think I got more messages and requests for this recipe I posted on my Instagram stories recently than any I’ve posted before. I was just going about my day, thought of making this while at work, and when I got home I was super thrilled I had everything I needed to throw it in the Instant Pot. It really is one of my favorite soups I forget about. Like I said, it’s super easy and you most likely have all the ingredients at home already. This is my Instant Pot version, but you can also throw it in your slow cooker.
Tomorrow, Nov. 28th is the first day of our Stay Fit Mom 25 Days of Macros Challenge! I hope you’re joining us and ready to kick some serious macro booty this holiday season!

We can help motivate each other to stay on track and avoid all the unnecessary holiday garbage that tends to be EVERYWHERE.
We are ecstatic to announce we are doing our second annual Stay Fit Mom 25 Days of Macros Challenge! It was such huge hit last year, and we personally loved the accountability, we’ve decided to do it again. The only difference is this year we’ve added a little extra incentive to complete it! So as you’re stuffing yourself with turkey and pie the next few days you can mentally prepare for this fun challenge to start on Monday!
This is the most challenging time of year to stay committed and hit your macros, so we want to help motivate you to do so. Let’s avoid the few extra pounds most people put on during these next few weeks attending holiday party after holiday party. Commit to staying on track and you’ll be so glad you did!
I know it’s not just me who feels like this time of year always flies by at warp speed. It’s my favorite time of year for so many reasons(pumpkin EVERYTHING, warm soup, comfy clothes, the holidays, and the beautiful changing leaves!). It’s easy to set your health and fitness goals aside when things get so busy, but I urge you not to as this year comes to a close. Make an effort to pencil your workouts into your day and make them happen. Come January, you’ll be glad you did!
I’ve always bared my soul on the blog. I flirt with the crazy line pretty frequently when it comes to sharing because Krista and I have built our business on honesty and vulnerability.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for months. I can take pictures of my back fat in a bikini 5 days postpartum without hesitation, but this one’s hard. I kept asking myself why is this so difficult to write about? If another woman were in my shoes, I’d be championing her along, so what am I so afraid of?
Bean burrito, no onions! That was my order at Taco Bell growing up every. single. time. With a side of nachos and cheese, ha! Sometimes I even requested a side of beans for my nacho chips, yikes! My point here is that I love pinto beans, and I always have. Lucky for me, they can be made very easily now and they’re very macro friendly! (That’s all that really matters anymore right!?)
