Meals, fitness and Fitbit

Hiiii :) Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend!

After reading your suggestions and doing some research, I ordered a FitBit Flex. (It was marked down to $89 on Amazon and with Prime shipping, I got it the next day!) I really loved the design of the Jawbone up, but had heard issues of them breaking, so I decided to go with the Flex, which is smaller than the Force.

I’ll write a full review after I’ve used it for a while, but so far, I love it!

Fitbit  1 of 1

It wireless syncs to my phone, tracks steps, activity level -which I feel is skewed since I talk with wild hand gestures- and looks kind of nerdy with real clothes ;)


(The Pilot is making that face because I came downstairs wearing almost the exact same outfit. Twinsies! He went upstairs and changed, haha.)

It’s funny how something so small can add a kick of motivation. I find myself walking around a little bit more during the day, and have been surprised to see how many steps I take on the days I don’t work out and am home with Liv. :)

I’ve loved your beautiful inspiration boards for the New Year <3

A little collage with some faves:

There are full links to all of the inspiration boards on this post! It would be a fun Sunday activity if you haven’t made your own yet :)

Here’s what’s on the fitness plan over here this week:

SUNDAY: Run and strength

FRIDAY: Easy spin



Yoga mats

Some dinner and prep ideas:

Sweet Paleo breakfast bread

Thin mint protein fudge

Make smoothie packs

Italian Wonderpot

Teriyaki salmon with sriracha sauce, brown rice, broccoli

Chicken stew with butternut squash and quinoa (<– it was so good last time, I have to make it again!)


Are you planning and prepping today? What’s on the menu?? Last time you felt inspired to kick up or change your fitness routine, or get in more activity during the day?

See you tonight with some weekend pics!

Tips for goals + random resolutions


I’m usually right there in the middle of the New Years hoopla of big changes. While I don’t like the pressure of an ambiguous date -if you want to make a change, why not just do it then, in the moment?- I can definitely agree with the fresh, crispy feeling of a new year, chance […]

In the New Year…

2012 was an amazing, amazing year. It definitely went by a little more quickly than I would have liked, but was a life-changer. Livi was born in the very beginning of the year (I’m still in shock that her birthday is next week!) and we’ve also added a fur sister for Bella. Our house and […]

Turn over a new leaf


It’s been quite the whirlwind Friday so far! It started nice and early: (the other alarm is from one Christmas morning when I woke up at 7 and Liv was still sleeping) For the past 8 months, I’ve had a tiny human alarm clock. She sings beautiful songs and does funny things to wake up- […]

Back to the inspiration board


Oh, hey Monday. You sneak up on us so quickly Since I’m on another breakfast kick (eating the same thing everyday until I get sick of it) let’s talk about inspiration. Yesterday was the day of the half marathon that I thought I’d be walk/running. It was fun to have a specific fitness event to […]

Hi, Thai


I love the weekend. So does Bell, who is definitely back to 100% after her night of sickies. She’ll shake her tail off at everyone, beg for chicken, snuggle… and give you the stink eye when you leave to go to dinner. The Pilot had to work a little later last night to catch up […]
