MMHM: Make Time for Yourself!

This week’s #MMHM is to remember to make time for yourself. Moms are always busy and on the go, typically making sure that their family is where they need to be and taken care of. Don’t forget to take care of yourself as well. Whether it is a kid free workout class, treating yourself to a mani/pedi, dinner with friends or a date night out, make sure to schedule time for just you! One of my favorite things to do […]

Like everyone else, I love the 4th of July! I love the BBQs, long weekend plans, drinks, snacks, fireworks and fun!

Here are some tips to help during holiday parties: Avoid the creamy dips & chips, instead opt for veggies, hummus, fruit and shrimp cocktail. Lighten up your wine or cocktail. Make yourself a […]

What’s For Dinner? Red, White & Blue Salad

Fitness Friday: Focus on Getting Enough Sleep

We all know how important a good night’s sleep is, although sometimes with little ones who wake up or don’t like to sleep it can be near impossible to get good rest.

Fitness Friday: Focus on Lemon Water

I have always preferred lemon water to plain water, mostly because I needed a little flavor! Although lemon water has some great health benefits when you drink it first thing in the morning. If you replace your morning coffee with warm lemon water for two weeks you will see a difference! Drinking lemon water helps your body rid of unwanted toxins, aids digestion, lose weight, & improves skin. Give it a try!!   Jenn¬†

What’s For Dinner? Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

A few months ago I did the Whole 30 and loved it! It was a challenge the first week for sure, but it really helped me change my eating lifestyle.

You can grill the salmon on a grill pan or outside on your outdoor grill.¬† Enjoy ūüôā¬† Jenn¬† *recipe adapted from The Cookie Rookie ¬†¬†¬†2 lbs salmon, cut into 4 pieces ¬†¬†¬†1 tbs olive oil […]

This week’s MMHM is a well packed beach bag. Now that summer is in full swing, beach season is finally here! Heading down the shore with kids is much different than the days of grabbing a cooler, towel, magazine and chair for yourself. Having a well organized and packed beach bag can make the trip a little easier and more enjoyable for everyone. Besides the obvious items, like towels, sunglasses, hats, and bathing suits, here are some of my beach […]
