Britney's Weekly Amazon Finds (April 30th)

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Hey guys!! It's time for another Amazon round up. As you probably already know when I first post the item it will be on my instagram story and I'll link it to my bio. But that link is only temporarily so after that I come here and relink all the past items I've talked about. This round up has some good items I'm excited for, so here we go!

It's no secret that I love Birkenstock sandals. Trendy and comfortable? Yes please! Here's the thing though, I can't jive with that price tag! Over 100 dollars for a sandal? I mean I'm sure they are great quality but I can't bring myself to pay that much. SO until I win the lottery... knock off birkenstock sandals! I mean they look pretty much exactly the same to me. I like them in the color "black paris" because I prefer to have neutral items that will go with everything!

I think I've tried almost every purple shampoo out there. Joico's color was awesome but it didn't lather and make it feel like I even washed my hair, shimmer lights always left a nasty residue in my hair and left it feeling like straw, Tigi's didn't have great pigment... but then I got my hands on this and the heavens opened! All the heart eyes. After I went to california my hair was starting to look like a Hulk Hogan yellow (thanks travel size tresseme shampoo... washed my toner straight out!). I didn't think that a shampoo would be able to retone my hair back to the white blonde I like but this one did! PLUS it lathers great, smells good, and my hair feels healthy after using it! 100% you need this shampoo if you feel like your hair is getting brassy. It's a favorite now!

I'm super picky about my hats, I don't like anything too obnoxious but not too boring either. I've had this hat for about a year now and it's a favorite. It says it's an orange color but it's definitely more of a peachy pink color. Great quality as well!

4. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up
Lately I've been on a journey of simplifying and minimizing my life and possessions. I feel like I end up collecting so much unnecessary and unneeded items and it ends up just contributing to my stress. I've noticed myself that when my house is tidy and clean I'm happier, my kids are happier, my husband is happier... we are overall able to enjoy life more! This woman talks about tidying your home in a way that isn't a total bore and motivates you to get up and do it. I'm about halfway through and I love it! If you saw my recent closet purge on Instagram stories it's because of this book. I think everyone should read it, especially mothers! We need simplification in our lives!

I found this dress and just thought it would be so cute as a swimsuit cover up this summer! Look at the cute tassels! Perfect with those birkenstock knock off's that I linked above! Then get yourself a turkish beach towel and you're set! Hottest and trendiest mom at the pool! Haha!

6. My couch!

 I've had so many questions on where I got my couch in my living room... and I don't blame you... It's really a good find! I can't take all the credit for it, my sister in law Kaley was actually the one that found it first! Now she has it, I have it, and my friend Em Fillerup has it too! Lucky for you guys... I just found it on Amazon with FREE SHIPPING. *insert happy dance*. This really is an amazing couch for the price. It looks modern thanks to the color and sides, the back cushions are attached so your crazy children aren't tempted to pull them off, the color is great for hiding any accidental spills from said children. It's awesome! It's kind of a salt and pepper look when you look at it really close so it's great for hiding any potential stains... and on that note it cleans well too! I've used our carpet cleaner on it before (it has a specific attachment for furniture) and it's cleaned it perfectly. It also has a great amount of seating for entertaining or for when you just want to stretch out. Have I sold you on it yet? Haha! It's a good one. We just got rid of the pillows it came with and got some cute ones from target.

In my opinion everyone needs a good carpet cleaner. I shiver thinking of the nasty crap that gets in our carpet. Even if you take your shoes off... feet germs galore! And especially having kids crawl and roll around on that... you need to have a good carpet cleaner. I got this one a few months ago and I've been so impressed with it. It gets up SO MUCH dirt! And I use it on our fabric furniture and it works perfectly. What did I do without it? Well, I borrowed my parents actually. That's what I did. But then my brother got us a giftcard for Christmas and this was the first thing I bought haha! Thanks Trevor! 

Hope you enjoyed this weeks amazon finds! Let me know your favorite down in the comments, or let me know what you'd like me to share more of! 

Also, as always, thanks for your continual love and support! I love you guys!!

Britney's Weekly Amazon Finds (April 4th)

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind! I recently put a pause on the BBG work out program I was doing (by Kayla Itsines) and started running again. Running is so hard to get back into, sheesh! I'm signed up for the Ogden Half Marathon May 20th so I'm really trying to cruise to get into half marathon shape. Even with my walk breaks it's hard work! I do love it though, the "runners high" is real guys!

Other than that we had Sam and Jake's birthday party last week. We hired out a bouncy castle and put it down in my in-laws indoor basketball court, he loved it! It was so fun for him to have all of his little friends around, and it was so fun for us to have all of our big friend around. And yes, Sam and Jake have the exact same birthday! I had to be induced for gestational hypertension at 38 weeks and it just happened to be Sam's birthday. Isn't that crazy? You definitely tell they are cut from the same fabric. I'm a total believer in horoscopes (anyone else?!) and sometimes it's hard to have two exact same horoscopes in the same house haha!

Other than that we've just been getting ready to go on a trip with our friends Em and Carl Fillerup and their little boys, we are going to California and Disneyland and are so excited! We got an airbnb in Anaheim just minutes away from Disney. I'll do a post about it when I get back!

I almost forgot to mention, one of my latest ventures has been signing up as a Rodan + Fields consultant. I tried their skincare and was hooked! So if you've been looking into Rodan + Fields here is a link to their products . I can help you with any questions you have and help you find a skincare system that is right for you. I always swore I'd NEVER sign up under and MLM... but then I tried their products and had to eat all my words. They really are amazing! If you have any questions e-mail me through here or DM me on instagram and I can help you. Or if you're looking to join as a consultant as well I'd love to have you on my team!

K back to Amazon, so we have a few finds to catch up on!

1. Turkish Beach Towels

Have you heard of turkish beach towels? They're the new trendy beach towels, and for a good reason! They ditch the mentality of traditional "fluffy" beach towels for an alternative thin, light weight towel. They are so much easier to pack in your bag while going to the beach or pool, heaven knows we already have way too many things (and children) to keep track of! You will be so surprised at how small and lightweight this product is, when I first got my box I was like there is NO WAY the towels are in here. They fold up so small it's great! I tested out the absorbency as well and they are still perfectly absorbent. The only downfall I can think of is if it's a cold day they aren't going to keep you insanely warm... so bring them out on the hot days when you just need a towel to dry off! 

2. Clear Umbrella

I'm just picturing some super cute pictures with this thing! I mean obviously it's functional too but can't you imagine some cute family pictures with it sprinkling outside, the kids in some rain boots, and some bright colored tulips blooming behind you? Yeah, you need this umbrella.

3. Baseball Cap

It's no secret that I hate having any kind of screen printing, logos, designs, etc on my clothes and my children clothes. I seriously have an aversion to it haha! So any time I can find a cute clothing item or accessory without some silly kind of branding I'm all over it. This hat was a perfect fit and a cute accessory to any outfit. It also goes really well with greasy roots if you catch my drift. Haha!

4. Swimsuit

My mommy body isn't anywhere near where it used to be prior to having kids. And I'm ok with that! I'm not ashamed of that. I love my body for being able to create my two perfect children. The problem is, sometimes with that mom bod (and nursing tatas) it can prove challenging to find a swimsuit I feel comfortable in. I ordered this swimsuit for california and I love the ruching on it, it accentuates all the right areas! It's true to size, maybe even a touch big. I ordered a 10 and I could have probably gotten away with an 8. There is a built in bra but it doesn't lift the girls back up to pre baby state... but that's ok! It has enough padding that you won't be scaring children at the pool when it's cold. Too far?

5. Midi Dress

I feel like this midi dress can be flattering on any body type. I got the black in a size large and it's just a good, simple, closet stable. You can dress it up with heels or down with a pair of converse. It would be great with a cute kimono or cardigan as well!

6. Media Cabinet

Whenever I post insta videos in my living room I always get questions about where I got my media cabinet. I thought that it had been discontinued but I found it here on amazon! We've loved it. It has ample space to store toys in as well as holes for wiring to the TV and consoles. It's great! It comes in three separate pieces but put together looks perfect. They surprisingly have some cute media cabinets on amazon! 

Hope you enjoyed this round up! As always, thanks for reading and for your continual support!

My Top 5 Most Embarrassing Moments

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Maybe I'm a bad person but I love laughing at another's expense. Those youtube "fail" videos are my jam... And I fully realize that fact makes me a terrible person. But the good thing is I laugh at another's expense, as well as my own! Which is why I decided to humor you and talk about some of my MOST embarrassing moments.

The problem with a lot of my embarrassing moments is that I'm SO MORTIFIED by them that I try to forget them. It's like my brains "protective" mechanism, I can't deal with the reality of what happened so my brain tries to pretend it didn't. However, I can remember a few of them and I'm going to share them with you today.

1. Pregnancy Underwear
Ok, you know how after you have a baby you need some underwear that you can wear for that awkward postpartum time frame? Well I went to Gordman's and got some of the biggest stretchiest underwear I could find. When I came home I tried them on and couldn't believe how far I could pull them up over my 8 month pregnant belly. Imagine humpty dumpty with granny panties on, that's what I looked like. Well, I layed down and started watching TV with these hideous granny panties on and couldn't stop cracking up about how far I could pull them up. Needing to share the humor of it with my husband I took a snapchat picture of the underwear and said, "I can pull this underwear up to my nipples!." Sent--sexy I know. Only problem was... I didn't just send it to my husband. I also accidentally added it to my STORY. Like 20 people saw it before I realized and took it down! Ohhhh mannnnn. That one still makes me blush.

2. Independence Day
This one may not seem like a big deal to some people but I'm going to add you really had to know this lady to completely understand. So one time at work I was sitting down with my boss in her office (who I might add, really intimidated me) and was talking about what holidays I was going to have to work. She was going over them, "Labor day, memorial day... and independence day." I don't know what got into me but when she said independence day I had a total brain fart and was like, "Uhhh when's independence day?" She looked up and was like, "... July 4th?" DUH. Duhhhhh. Oh man. I felt like an idiot on that one, just demote me already. Hahaha.

3. Easy Breezy Beautiful Covergirl
Remember how I used to do modeling? Well one time I was on a fitness shoot out at the salt flats. They brought the clothing for the shoot and had me put it on... some leggings and a tank top. Since it was a fitness shoot we were going to have to do some running and uhhh "fitness-y" stuff. As I was stretching to warm up (You know, standing up and touching my toes etc...) I notice a slight breeze... um... down there. "Strange..." I thought. Well as I went back to change out of the leggings I look and... the crotch area was completely see-through! When I was innocently stretching my legs I was also... well... let's just say more could be seen then I expected. *FACE PALM*

4. First Kiss
I didn't kiss anyone until I was 16. Not necessarily because I was trying to follow the rules... mostly because the opportunity never presented itself and I was a good foot taller than all the prospects. THEN one night me and my friends were hot tubbing at a friends house. In my 16 year old stupor I had mentioned to my friends that I thought this kid was cute. Which... basically meant he was taller than me. SCORE. Anyway, CONVENIENTLY they all just decide to get out of the hot tub and leave me and this kid in there. Of course, like friends do. This guy had broken his arm in a ski accident so he had a cast on it... and he was just keeping it on the side of the hot tub so no water would touched it. Well that was a great idea until he leaned in to kiss me. OMG MY FIRST KISS. He leans in, connects, lips to lips, and *SPLASH*. He dunks his whole cast in the water. We go inside and blood is dripping out of his cast (I think it was an open fracture so he had surgery with screws and everything). Me and all our friends try to dry it out with a blow dryer with no luck. The next morning I wake up to a text saying that he ended up having to go to the ER to have them rewrap it for a small charge of 200 dollars. WHOOPS. How's that for a first kiss. Haha! 

5. Pregnancy Fluffs 
I was working as a nurse while in my third trimester on the mother baby floor… Anyone that has been in the third trimester of pregnancy knows there’s not a lot of room for anything in your abdominal area besides your baby. Anyway, I was in a patient’s room with her new baby, the dad was on one side of me and the mom was on the other. The baby started gagging while laying in the bassinet so I hurridly bent over to suction it and pat it’s back… in the process of doing so I accidentally let one slip. I farted. With the parents directly behind me. I was MORTIFIED. The baby was fine. The parents acted awkward… They were like “Oh it’s ok!!” (that I had just passed gas) and I was like laugh!!! Just laugh! I would feel so much better if you laughed! Later as I was giving report to the oncoming nurse I told her and had to relive the horror all over again. Hahahahaha. Out of all of the stories... I think that one takes the cake. 

I hope these gave you a laugh like they give me a laugh. Do me a favor and let me know which one was your favorite, pregnancy fluffs?! Hahahah. You want me as your nurse don't you!

Thanks for reading!

Britney's Weekly Amazon Finds (March 15th)

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I try to share a few "Amazon Finds" each week. I share them on my story and then temporarily change my instagram bio link to link directly to the item. I share everything from teeth whitening, to make up, to shoes! 

I only change the link in my bio for about 24 hours before I change it to the next item... but I was having a lot of questions about past links so I decided to just do a weekly blog post linking to the past items I talked about.

So here they are!

1. Crest White Strips

Probably one of the most asked questions I get on instagram is... how do you whiten your teeth?! I've only ever used Crest White Strips and I love them! As long as I don't leave them on too long or do them too frequently I don't have problems with sensitivity. If you find your teeth getting sensitive try doing them every other day. They make my teeth as white as professional treatments! Also, make sure you get theses ones linked below because they stick to your teeth better!

2. Make Up Brushes

I was so happily surprised by the quality of these make up brushes. I hadn't replaced my make up brushes in I don't know... 7 Years?! Did I just admit that? Not good. I've used these daily for two weeks and they've held up perfectly! The brush hairs are so soft and I haven't had any fall out. For the price they are really great quality!

3. Silicone Foundation Applicator

I kept seeing this liquid foundation applicator popping up all over social media and I would just roll my eyes and think, "There is NO WAY it's that good." I tend to be slow to jump on these trend trains... I guess it's the bit of non conformist in me! But then I tried this and it's a new favorite. The non-conformist has conformed. It's crazy... it's so simple but so amazing! It makes my liquid foundation go on so smooth and so even... I love it! Totally worth the 7 bucks. I've been using it every day since!

4. Setting Powder

I use Tarte amazonian clay liquid foundation (color medium beige sand... I think) and it  has great coverage. BUT I wanted to get a setting powder to extend the stay of the foundation and to experiment a little bit with "baking". I've been pleasantly surprised with this powder. It will probably last me literally a year because there is so much of it. It's definitely for normal/oily skin because of it's drying properties. If you have oilly skin you will love this powder. 

5. Baby Dress

I'm obsessed with these cute little baby tunics. I call them tunics because they are somewhere between a dress and a shirt... If you put them on as a dress I'd put tights or leggings underneath. When I dress my kids I don't like putting them in clothing with a bunch of screen printing and stuff... I just like to keep it plain and minimalist. Which is why I like these! They have seven different colors and they hold up great.

6. Shoes

There are these darling shoes at Nordstroms that every fashion blogger ever seems to be posting about. Problem is they are over 100 dollars! Not today Nordstroms... not today. Probably not tomorrow either. So while browsing through amazon (like I frequently do once the kids are in bed) I found THESE GEMS! Obsessed. They have 27 different colors and fabrics. I got the "Tan Pu" (which by the way... is a terrible name). I like how they have a wide study heal which makes it easier to chase around my crazy kids. I just ordered them and can't wait to wear them to church on Sunday... I've needed some new ones for a while!

That's it for now! I hope you liked them, let me know what ones you like the most so I know to do more "research" in that category ;)

Thanks for reading!

How I got my 10 month old to FINALLY sleep through the night

Monday, March 6, 2017

Ever since I posted that my 10 month old has started sleeping through the night I've had tons of questions of how I did it... I thought I would take to the blog to explain the best I could.

With my older son we sleep trained him so he was sleeping through the night by like 8 weeks. However, he was formula fed and my little girl has nursed exclusively. She won't take a binky either... so I have been her bottle and binky! Which was fine and I loved the nighttime cuddles, but once she turned 10 months and was still getting up like 4 times a night I had to take action. It was beginning to affect my physical and mental health.

I debated whether or not I should even share this post because some are very opinionated when it comes to crying it out. So as you read please take into consideration that I am a mom just like you and we are all trying to do what we think is best for our kids.

With Jake I didn't mind letting him cry it out if I knew all of his needs had been met. Has he been fed? Yes. Has his diaper been changed? Yes. Has he been burped? Yes. Has he been cuddled and coddled enough during the day? Yes. Is he sick? No. Has he been hurt? No.

If I knew all his needs had been met I was fine with letting him cry a little bit. However, I don't know what it is about Chloe but I never let her cry it out until this point. She also has some lungs and endurance on her so I never wanted to let her cry!

After posting about how she still didn't sleep through the night I got a lot of responses saying I needed to sleep train. I also talked to her pediatrician about how she was getting up 4 times in the night still and he said it's because it's an automated response. They think, "If I cry, then mom comes and I get to nurse and cuddle." Which was fine! For 10 months... and then I decided for my mental health something needed to change.

I was either going to be considered by some to be a "bad mom" for letting my baby cry it out at night or I was going to be considered a "bad mom" for having no patience and being irritable towards my kids during the day because I was getting NO SLEEP.

So I decided to be the bad mom for letting her cry a couple nights. My pediatrician said that it usually only takes two or three nights at her age and then they're sleeping through the night. I tried letting her cry it out about a month ago and every 5 minutes I'd go in and rub her back and comfort her... turns out that actually would just make her more upset. I could tell she was just thinking. "WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING LADY?? Stop rubbing my back, pick me up and let me nurse!" So really me going in there would just escalate the crying.

The next time I tried the crying it out I sat outside her room and let her cry. It was painful because I just wanted to go in and pick her up but I knew it was what I had to do for both of us. The first night she woke up at 3 am and cried 30 minutes. Me and my husband just laid there awake wanting to go pick her up so bad.. she's so dainty and sweet! But I needed sleep to be a better mom. She woke up again after that at like 5 AM and cried another 5 minutes and then went to sleep.

The next night she woke up at 3 AM again and cried for like 15 minutes and went to sleep. Then she woke up at 5 AM again and fussed a little before falling asleep again.

I should add, the days after this she got extra extra cuddles. Also whenever I went in her nursery to get her up for the day she was smiling and as happy as ever. Not thinking that I abandoned her like some critics of crying it out think. She still loves me just as much!

The third night SHE SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT! Wahoooo. She was so much happier during the day because SHE was finally getting the uninterrupted sleep her little body needed. I was a much more patient and loving mom during the day because I was finally getting the sleep that I needed!

So here is how our days look now

7 AM- Wake up and nurse. 
8 AM- eat breakfast solids and have sippy cup of water available
9:30 AM- Nurse and then lay down for nap
Noonish- Wake up from nap and have lunch solids with sippy of water available
1 PM- Nurse before mom begins her work out
2:30 PM- Nurse and then lay down for nap
4 PM- Wake up from nap
6 PM- Dinner
7 PM- Bedtime routine

Our bedtime routine includes having a bath, put on nighttime diaper, rub on aveeno lotion (the best), rubbing some lavender essential oil on her feet, turning on the diffuser and diffuse some lavender essential oil, turn on our white noise machine, read a book, nurse, and then lay down for sleep.

Before I go to sleep (usually around 10 PM) I will go in and pick her up and nurse her one last time and then lay her back down. She pretty much stays asleep that whole time.

Here are the items we use. And I got them on Amazon because of course!

I hope this helps and that you sleep deprived mamas are able to find some relief like I have FINALLY found. Thanks for reading and for your continual support!

Weight Loss Meal Plan [FREE]

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

So I was going to wait until I saw results to shared this meal plan but you guys wanted to know what I've been following so here it is!! 💪🏼 Jump on the bandwagon to better health with me!

DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a health coach nor do I intend to be. This is simply a meal plan I am personally following. This meal plan was modified by me to meet my individual needs. Consult your doctor before starting a new exercise or meal plan. 

Ok, now we've got the legalities out of the way, let's get to it! Of course, the goal is better health and a leaner body composition. I've been doing Kayla Itsines BBG exercise plan (currently on week 7 and love it!) but her meal plan wasn't quite up my alley... you have to have foods on your meal plan that you actually like! I like this meal plan because it feels doable for on-the-go moms... plus most of the things you can get at Costco! SCORE. Vegetables can be added freely to the plan.

MEAL 1: Breakfast (9 AM)
1 G2G bar
1 premier protein shake 

MEAL 2: Lunch (12 PM)
1 wheat sandwich thin 
2 oz of sliced turkey
1 light laughing cow cheese
1/2 medium tomato (sliced)
Cucumber sliced
1 oz avocado 
1 apple

MEAL 3: Afternoon snack (3 PM)
Combat chocolate cake protein bar 

MEAL 4: Dinner (6 PM)
1 cup green vegetable (broccoli, asparagus, spinach, green beans, etc...)
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
4 oz lean white meat (chicken, turkey, tilapia)

MEAL 5: Evening snack (9 PM)
4 egg whites 
1 orange

Here are the stats broken down 
on the app Myfitnesspal

If you add an extra G2G bar (nursing mom) refer to the chart below.

The thing I love about this meal plan is I feel HEALTHIER on it. Not only am I meeting my macronutrients (protein, fat, and carbohydrates) but I'm meeting most of my micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). I also take a multivitamin nightly, as well as vitamin D3, fish oil, and B6. I will link to the Amazon products and doses I take below.

Generally speaking if you are nursing you want to be hitting around at least 1800 calories. I typically add in one more G2G bar... it has those good fats that are beneficial for nursing moms. I mean it's not hard to get in a few extra calories if you catch my drift 😉.  DO NOT DRINK YOUR CALORIES. I do allow myself a Diet Coke once a day (if needed) but I should just stick to water! One thing that has helped me get my water ounces in so much is my swell bottle (and this is NOT sponsored!). I know, it's ridiculous. A water bottle that expensive could never be worth it! At least that's what I thought... then I got one for Christmas. Un-real. Fill it up with ice and water and there is STILL ICE in it after 12 hours. I take mine with me everywhere I go and out of habit (and because it's so cold) I find myself drinking it all the time. If you get one make sure you get a swell one though because the other ones are knock offs and don't work as good (made with aluminum instead of stainless steel).

Another thing... Be gentle on yourself! One bad meal (or day) shouldn't cause you to fall off the wagon! Everything in moderation. The "all or nothing" mentality is a very dangerous way of thinking when it comes to food because it sets the stage for binges. If you are going crazy for a food and can't get it out of your mind, allow yourself some. But set limits (example: don't eat the whole pizza/jar of Nutella). And don't let it happen too frequently! I'll admit that Friday and Saturday nights are my nights to eat out with my loved ones. I don't believe in not living your life because your following a meal plan, live your life! Just know that those cheat meals may slow down your weight loss, BUT that's not the end of the world. Eat healthier for better health not just weight loss! When you eat out ideally we should try and get a healthier option (meat + veggies) but if you really want something else... don't restrict yourself! Get your feel and then jump right back on the bandwagon after, it's not lacing without you. You're the driver! No one can lead you to better health but yourself. 

On another note, you can get creative with the foods you are allowed. Just try not to add too many extra calories! Some sauce here and there isn't the end of the world. In fact one of my favorite things to do is add some wishbone Italian dressing on my lunch sandwich! If you are a sauce person (like me) try the Bolthouse Farms yogurt dressings... low in calories but high in flavor 👍🏼

As I go I will be posting and relinking different "recipes" that meet requirements to this meal plan. No, they will not be anything fancy. Just some super basic stuff but HEY if you didn't know to put lemon pepper on your tilapia that DOES make a huge difference. 😂😜

I went through and took pictures of all the foods you need and that you can get at Costco. No not sponsored by Costco... I wish! BTW costco if you are listening I'm really trying to save up for an outdoor patio set so........... hit me up. Hahah.

There is only one thing you CAN'T get at costco... and they are the Combat bars. I like the chocolate cake combat bar... it's pretty good considering. And you know I'm picky about my protein bars! You can buy them on Amazon for a fairly good price, I'll link it here.Or you can find the at your local health food store. 


Costco Grocery Haul

The last two are snacks I throw in if I'm desperate to snack on something. The bags of jerky are 90 calories each with 14 grams of protein. As for the pretzel crisps I have one serving (100 calories) and dip it in two of those light laughing cow cheeses. Scrumptious!

OBVIOUSLY you can get most of these things at any grocery store. I mean... do you need to get precooked and peeled boiled eggs? No. Is it convenient?? Yes!

When it comes to dinner I try and cook dinner the day of... but exceptions come up. Or what I like to call #survivalmommode comes up. And instead of going through the drive thru... make your own healthy frozen meals ahead of time! I got some meal prep containers from Amazon (link) and I just put in my cooked-ahead-of-time dinner in there and throw it in the freezer. To cook it I put chicken in the crockpot, rice in the rice cooker, steam broccoli... and then portion it out according to the meal plan measurements.

I had a question asking what I do for my kids when I'm eating healthier. I just give them the same thing! Only since I have a skinny kid I'm trying to bulk up I'll find a way to add extra butter, oil, or cheese to it. Ironically Jake's favorite foods literally are chicken, broccoli, and rice so I'm not sure how the worked out. 🤔

Anyway, that's the meal plan! I'd love to hear if you decide to follow it and/if it works for you. For a more specified meal plan I recommend speaking to a health coach and having your individual macronutrients calculated for you. We're all in this together and though I've lost 60 pounds before (and know I can) I'm still at the start of my journey this time around. So join me! We can do it. 💪🏼 And we will!

P.S. I posted a instastory today of Jake's bike and a lot of you wanted to know where we got it. Here it is below! I love it. It's so sleek and it's gender neutral for when Chloe can begin to ride. Great quality as well. And of course it's from amazon because what don't I get from amazon. Haha! 

and this is the helmet we got... in matte black and size small
