I’m sad… Continue reading Competition Stage Bikinis and Costumes For Sale!
We had a Serious About Fitness Camp today so this meal prep was done in high speed mode this morning. I did it all in the oven at the same time to save time. I made one of my fav ‘winter’ meals.

I like to meal prep in the late afternoon on Sundays (or holiday Mondays ) so that I make dinner at the same time. This saves me from having to cook and clean the kitchen more than necessary. The cleaning part is not my favourite and my hubby would say not my forte either 😛… Continue reading Meal Prep August 1st 2016

Soooooo, if you were looking for last week’s meal prep you won’t find it. I didn’t do it. I know, so unlike me.

Um that’s crazy, I find it such a crazy thing to say that I’m… Continue reading 6 weeks Pregnant
Well it happened. I’m pregnant. It’s bizarre writing it really, I can’t explain the feeling except to say there’s part of me that doesn’t believe it.

When my blog was originally called BluntBeauty I launched Beauty Tip Tuesday on my Insta but as I became even more obsessed with my passion for nutrition & fitness and things morphed into what is now fitbeauties.ca, I found myself writing less and less about beauty stuff. I’d love to pick it up again and if you… Continue reading Beauty Tip Tuesday – How To Make Your Next Bath AMAZING!
