Micros VS Macros

What’s more important, Micros or Macros?

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.

Client Spotlight: Meghan Lynd

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?

Counting Macros Pregnant

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.

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.
