What If I Don’t Want to Track Macros the Rest of My Life

Last Monday, the MyFitnessPal’s server went down and we had a slew of clients lose their sh*t.  Somewhere between 80-100 comments on our “MyFitnessPal Apocalypse” thread ranging from utter panic and devastation to witty banter, comedy, and relief.  My first thoughts were actually,

“I’m really glad MyFitnessPal can’t see this thread because if they knew how valuable their app was they’d probably double their prices.” Continue Reading

The Do’s and Don’ts of Meal Prepping for Busy Moms

This post is sponsored by Rubbermaid®; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

There isn’t enough time in the day for all the things us moms have to get done. Dishes, laundry, work, sports practices, kids’ homework, gym, errands, housework, and I could pretty much go on forever.

Raising Boys in a Women’s World

Beyonce’s song,  “Run the World (Girls),” and women’s empowerment hashtags might be flooding pop culture right now, but I’m calling on my sisters to highlight the men in their lives today.

7 Reasons You Should Try Stay Fit Mom Macro Coaching With a BUDDY!!

When I dropped my son off for kindergarten on the first day of school I was a nervous wreck.  I watched as he stood on the sidelines of the playground.  Some kids were flying down the slides, others were playing tag in the grass, but Milo was just watching it all cautiously.  Just one friend, I prayed silently as the bell rang and he marched into his classroom.  Just make one friend.

Because Mama, YOU are a Bad Ass.

Ever feel like everyday is Groundhog’s day? Last week, as I scrolled through my social media feed I noticed myself gradually getting more unhappy by the minute.  There was that family at Disneyland… AGAIN. Next up, a couple vacationing in Rome.  And then, just as I put my kid in time out for the third time, I saw that somebody else was buying a brand new house that’s double the size of mine.
