As we are pushing through the most expensive…err…I mean, the happiest season of all, many are going to unwillingly prepare themselves for the fiscal fast of the new year.  This does not have to be a bad thing!  Actually, it can be quite a relief when you get down to actually doing it.  If you […]

Fit & Frugal: The Attitude of Gratitude

We have already finished Christmas shopping for the kids.  By no means am I trying to be an overachiever in this.  It is all for reason.  We are trying to spread out the cost of Christmas as well as simply trying to avoid the craziness.  Every year I find amazing deals and buy up all […]

Fit Foodie:  Involving the kids more

Dinners have been different here.  The kids have been wanting to help out more.  We have been focusing on lower technicality recipes.  I am trying to feed their curiosity but also their want to help.  It is so easy to get caught up in the moment and turn a child down from helping because we […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Fit Family

It’s pretty amazing seeing the effort you put into finding a healthy & whole way of life…in your children.

Be-You-Tifully Fit: “Athletic Build”

THANK GOODNESS IT’S TIME FOR SHORTS!  Yes, you heard me right.  I’ve come to realize something.  I’m officially an athletic build.  The kind way of saying your leg muscles are dictating that you must go up a size, switch out of the skinny leg fit or just to stick with leggings.  Well shoot.  I’ve been […]

Fit Foodie: Cabinet cleaning aka wing it.

Whole 30 approved Burrito Bowl http://www.katrina-runs.com/whole-30-day-20-pass-the-cheese We changed the recipe a little to fit us a little more.  Ground turkey, white kidney beans and melted cheese.  Came out tasty!

Be-You-Tifully Fit: It’s here…no time to turn back

I’d like to think of myself as humble and honest.  I like challenges that push me to fear.  I love to see who I am at the other side of it all.  I say this here because I begin to wonder things before the physical tests ahead.  They humble you.  They make you honest.  They […]
