Turbo Kick 65 today! I realize the importance of following a program from beginning to end for optimal results, but since Shift Shop does not come out for another few weeks my plan is to alternate days of weights and cardio. Instead of "winging it" I've mapped out the workouts I plan to complete and then I'll repeat that series until the new program comes out. . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #parenthood #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #workout #cardio #sweat #committed #turbokick
Fixate chili! You must think I'm crazy for making chili in the middle of summer but the temps here are unseasonably cool today. This was my first time making this – and I must say I'm impressed. It's actually the perfect summer chili because it's light and not as heavy as a traditional chili. Very delicious! . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #parenthood #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #cleaneatingideas #cleaneating #cleaneats #healthyeating #healthy #healthyeats #healthyeatingideas #dinnerideas #dinner #simpledinners
#mcm - Mom Crush Monday again! I love so many things about being a mom, but one of the most unexpected perks (for me) has been the mom friendships I've made...you know, the friendships with women who are truly in the trenches with you? The ones you feel safe confiding in about all your fears, insecurities, and horrifying mistakes because you know they've been there too. Good mom friends have been a safe haven for me over the years. And this beauty here...she's great. This is my friend Courtney. I 💗 her. Her friendship skills are top notch: she's loyal, generous, thoughtful, honest, and has the biggest heart. Plus she's super funny with a quick wit & she never takes any of my hubby's sarcastic shit, which I LOVE! Best of all, Courtney has the most incredible gift in her ability to make others feel noticed and important. I pray every Mom has a Courtney in her life. And even if you can't know "my" Courtney, you can follow her on IG @courtney_files - besides being a fab friend, she's also crazy talented. She's a kick-ass wife, mom, interior designer, photographer, and lifestyle blogger. One of the things I admire most about her work is her willingness to let you have a glimpse into her life: from what she's wearing to mommy adventures to miscarriage. She's bold and brave and vulnerable, such a beautiful combination.
This might be my favorite new way to eat broccoli! I found this recipe on Pinterest and adapted it for my own needs. Easy Oven Roasted Broccoli 2 lbs. fresh broccoli florets 1-2 tbsp. olive oil 1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. minced garlic Pinch of ground black pepper 2 tsp. fresh Parmesan (optional) . Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Layer broccoli in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle lightly with olive oil, season with salt, garlic and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, then, remove from the oven and toss with Parmesan. I only used 2 tsp. of fresh Parmesan.

I'm always looking for healthy ways to prepare chicken. I need different flavor combinations to keep me from getting bored. We made this one last night and it was a big hit. We paired this with a large salad. Try adding this to your dinner rotation and let me know what you think. . Honey & Spice Grilled Chicken: 1 tbsp. olive oil 1 tsp. chili powder 1 tsp. curry powder 1 clove of garlic, minced 1 cup plain Greek yogurt 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. honey 1/2 tsp. celery seeds, ground 1/2 tsp. salt . Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add chili powder, curry powder and garlic. Cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute. . In a large resealable plastic bag, combine chicken, chili powder mixture, yogurt, cinnamon, coriander seeds, honey, celery seeds and salt. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Preheat grill. Arrange chicken on the grill. Grill chicken, turning every six minutes until cooked through. . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #parenthood #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #cleaneatingideas #cleaneating #cleaneats #healthyeating #healthy #healthyeats #healthyeatingideas #dinnerideas #dinner #simpledinners
Day 7/Rd2 - Round 2 completed!! I haven't checked to see if I've made any additional progress from the first round. Honestly, I don't care. I'm more proud of myself for committing and sticking to the program and seeing it through. I feel so much better! It was something I needed to get me out of a slump and out of a plateau. Today's plan is to map out the week ahead and set up another series of workouts to keep me going. I'd love to hear what programs you're doing? . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #parenthood #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #workout #cardio #sweat #committed #totalbodyworkout #compundmovements #shaunweek
Yes, I'm addicted to cucumbers. I crave savory more than I do sweet. Sometimes it's hard to find clean snacks that satisfy my salt tooth and provide a crunch. I find that cucumbers with a pinch of salt really hit the spot. I topped these cucumbers with a 1/2 tsp. of olive oil for some healthy fats. . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #parenthood #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #cleaneatingideas #cleaneating #cleaneats #healthyeating #healthyeats #healthyeatingideas #snacks #simplesnacking #healthyfats
Today was a super stressful day with the kids. Normally when I'm stressed I will grab something to snack on, but tonight I chose to grab my shoes instead and hit the track. I'm so happy I made that choice. It's amazing what a little exercise & quiet time will do for you. . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #parenthood #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #workout #cardio #sweat #committed #track #walking #destress
Day 1 again...why not? After 1 week of doing Shaun Week I am down 4.5 lbs. and 2 in. overall. While that may not seem huge to some, it is to me. I've been stuck for over a year. I've decided to commit to a 2nd round of this workout series. Day 1 - round 2 done! . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #parenthood #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #workout #cardio #sweat #committed #totalbodyworkout #compundmovements #shaunweek
Day 5: Ripsanity - The third progression in I was like you want me to do what? I was hating him for a while. 😂 In all seriousness, that was a fantastic workout. I loved everything about it. I'll be feeling it tomorrow. . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #workout #cardio #sweat #committed #totalbodyworkout #weights #compundmovements #shaunweek
Day 4: Abs - I did not want to workout this morning. I had to peel myself out of bed. Working abs is my least favorite muscle group so I had a few extra excuses as to why I could skip over this workout. Knowing I was I checking in with my girlfriends helped get me moving. So glad I got it done! . . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #toddlermom #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #workout #sweat #committed #abs #shaunweek
Day 3: Insane Weights - this might be my favorite workout so far. Loved the addition of weights and compound movements. On to day 4!! . . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #workout #cardio #sweat #committed #totalbodyworkout #weights #compundmovements #shaunweek
This is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets...the Avo Saver! We go through a lot of avocados around here but inevitably were always left with a half of one. Anyone else have one of these? . . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #mommylife #twinmom #fraternaltwins #toddlermom #momofthree #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #kitchengadgets #avocados #kitchenmusthaves #avosaver
Day 2: Pure Cardio in the books. Clearly yesterday's workout was just a warmup to today's ass kicking. I was dying! . . . . #momofboys #boymom #momoftwins #mommy #twinmom #fraternaltwins #momofthree #wahm #sahm #stlmom #stlouismom #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #fitfam #fitfamily #workinprogress #myjourney #workout #cardio #sweat #committed #shaunweek
