Fit Fam

I’ve shared my own fitness goals since I started this blog but I also have goals for my family. I want girls to know that being active should always be a part of life and never stop moving.  Kids are watching what we do so it’s important to lead by example. Mister and I have done our best to take the kids to the gym with us, the park or participating in sports.   Both of the girls love to get outside and get moving.  My new obsession is cute kid active wear.  I even found some workout clothes for Harper.

Organic Snacks & Quick Meals for the Family

This post is sponsored by Annie’s for Publix.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Over the last 2 years, I’ve been doing my best to provided home cooked meals nights.  It’s a lot of work, but this is the best way I can make sure my girls consume more natural and organic food.  Stocking up on Annie’s Home Grown natural and organic products from Publix saves me time and money than a trip to a specialty store.  This week I saved a few coins at Publix on my organic purchases.  At Publix, when you purchase 4 participating Annie’s products you get a free half gallon of Publix Greenwise Organic Milk.   You can never have enough snacks or milk.

30 Day Protein Challenge: Easy Beef + Veggie Stir-fry

This post is brought to you by The Beef Checkoff and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

In my never-ending journey to eating right, I’ve learned a few things about myself.  I love carbs but they don’t love me back.  I tend to fill up on carbs to compensate for not getting enough protein in my diet.  When I overload on carbs, I feel sluggish and hungry for the rest of the day.  For the month of October, I’ll be participating in the 30 Day Protein Challenge in an effort to increase my energy levels, improve my overall health and maybe lose a few pounds.  I’m kicking off the Protein Challenge with this easy beef and veggie stir fry.
