Happy Thanksgiving!!! I love this holiday. The weather, the food, the fam and the thanks. It’s perfect. This weekend I decided to cook up a little 10lb turkey for dinner on Saturday night.

This makes me happy! 12 weeks is such a good milestone. Heading in the 2nd trimester. Woohoo! We had our 12 week ultrasound and blood work yesterday.

I currently subscribe to a flexible dieting approach to nutrition and have been for several years. Flexible dieting is also known as IIFYM (if it fits your macros) and my coach and mentor, Dr. Layne Norton and the BioLayne team are teaching the world the science behind it all one day at time. Flexible dieting… Continue reading Why I’m Flexible Dieting (IIFYM) & Why You Might Like it too
I finally had a chance to prep a decent amount food. The last two weeks have been really off schedule for me and that drives me crazy.

Helllooooo! I drank too much coffee today and am still feeling it. Hahaha. It was a holiday and we stayed home and worked around the house.
