New Year, New Traditions!

Today is New Year’s Eve and for the first time Sam and I are not going out. Normally we go out or have people over but this year we decided a change was needed. We are staying in and spending some much-needed quality time together […]

Oh Happy Monday!!!

It was a great holiday weekend, lots of fun and laughter with my nearest and dearest I can even say I didn’t go over board with the sweets and dinner choices. With that said I still want to keep moving and watching what I eat. […]

Happy First Day of Winter!!

Happy First Day of Winter!!

It’s the first day of winter and I’ve been up since 5 am! Honestly in the beginning of December I was not ready. Not ready for a busier work schedule, last-minute to do’s with the wedding and all the general holiday festivities I wanted to accomplish as well! I wasn’t feeling balanced and it was starting to stress me out. So what do I do when I feel a stressed? I eat, lots and lots of delicious treats aka enough cookies to feed a family of four for an entire year but finally on this beautiful first day of winter I am ready to get back on track!!

So back to this morning, I woke up at 5am rolled out of bed put my hair up in a top knot and threw some sneakers on and went to the gym. And no, I did NOT take an outfit of the day photo of this one but maybe next time. This was purely a “get your ish together Meg!” moment. I grabbed some water and was out to door. I had a great run did a little stretching…attempted the arms, left the arms for another day and I was on my way home. Even though I didn’t get through the arm work outs I still felt great. I got back on track and it helped set up my day to be a good one (knock on wood). Now its time to tackle the rest of the day starting with breakfast. I decided to go with a delicious open-faced sandwich. Usually I stick with eggs and avocado but I wasn’t feeling it today!

I had perfectly ripened bananas that I was going to use for cookies tonight so I took one of those, some almond butter and two pieces of bread and I made deliciousness! Sprinkle a little organic brown sugar and cinnamon on top and I was in heaven!!!!

So here’s to the first day of winter and to always continuing to work on yourself. I hope you all have a fabulous day!

My New Favorite Go-to

My New Favorite Go-to

Sometimes all I want is a heavy delicious Italian meal. Most of the time when I catch myself craving I usually go for something extra creamy. But recently I have put an end to all of that and I’m trying to go with something a […]

Cookies for Breakfast? YES, PLEASE!

Cookies for Breakfast? YES, PLEASE!

The holiday season is upon us and with that comes my craving for sweets. I’m not going to lie I’ve probably eaten enough cookies this week alone to last the entire year and let’s be real I am eating one now! But this little guy […]
