We talk an awful lot about the importance of eating a macro-balanced diet, but truth be told we started our blog as avid Whole30ers (read more about the transition we made to macros HERE). While we are so grateful for the knowledge we have now, we are equally grateful for all the time we spent prioritizing food quality FIRST. In fact, we think macros has benefited us so much because we knew going in, throwing food quality out the window would NEVER be an option for us.
Meghan inspires me so much. I shared her transformation on my Instagram a few weeks ago and immediately thought, she has to be the next client spotlight. This one post on Instagram isn’t enough. Meghan’s story is way too relatable and familiar to so many women to not share. Battling hypothyroidism, a history of yo-yo dieting, pregnancy, doctors who recommended she cut her calories drastically to see results…Any of that sound familiar? Let’s learn more from Meghan about how macros has changed her life and finally given her hope.
My kids and Chad go crazy for Sloppy Joes. Honestly, I love them too. I especially love how easy they are to throw together on a busy weeknight. You most likely have all these ingredients at home. These are a must try!
When I was pregnant in 2017 with my second child I had Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). I remember being devastated when I found out. I had worked in women’s health for five years and I knew what the 3rd trimester would entail with having GDM. I would have to see High Risk Pregnancy in addition to my regular OB, prick my finger several times a day, give myself daily insulin shots & do fetal monitoring twice a week for the last two months of the pregnancy.
Every once in a while I get asked this question from a follower,
“What about the fact that macro counting is a diet and part of the dangers of diet culture?”
As a nutrition coach, whose business is centered around helping people use flexible dieting as a means to shed body fat, I used to feel triggered by all of the anti-diet hype out there. Here I am trying to help people with real health issues fight for their life and the media is making me feel terrible for it. In fact, at one point in my coaching career I started to wonder if I was part of the problem.
You guys know I’ve been working on building a booty. It’s fun and I’m hoping I’ll eventually notice a difference. Like anything else it’s going to take a lot of consistency. This week’s weekly workout is a round-up of some of my favorite new glute exercises. Give this one a try and tell me what you think!
I’ve been doing a lot of workouts at home recently and loving it. My gym isn’t closed, I’m just enjoying being on my own and doing my own thing. Chad’s been slowly working on getting us equipment again so it’s fun to use it as it comes. We finally scored some 35 pound dumbbells that arrived yesterday. Finding gym equipment right now is pretty hard.
