Anyone else up for a little mommy wine time?⁠ I mean, hello, we’re on vacation in Vermont this week, so there will definitely be some cocktails in the mix! 😉 ⁠⠀ Just because you’re tracking macros, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the things you love. For real.⁠⠀ The beauty of a macro-ish lifestyle is that you can have ALLTHETHINGS and you get to practice moderation, too!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Enjoying a much-needed glass of wine here…

As you may know, my 40th birthday recently passed. A big milestone and yet something pretty regular too. I had a great day with my family, eating some of my favorite foods and doing some of my favorite social-distance friendly activities. It was great and my family made me feel so incredibly loved.  Leading up to my birthday, I decided to give up alcohol for 40 days. I really wanted to look and feel good…

I was recently asked if I was participating in “Dry January” this month… Photo by Zan on Unsplash You guys know that I have always been a fan of moderation. I like my carrots, but I love my cake. Even when I’ve experimented with diets over the years, I always needed some sort of flexibility for my sanity’s sake. The “all or nothing” approach may work for a short period of time, but it ultimately…

If you’re new to clean-crafted wine, you might have some questions about why Scout & Cellar wines are different from others on the market. I personally think they are delicious, which, of course, is why I became an independent consultant, but I really love that they are better for you. Read on for some commonly asked questions and responses (aka Scout & Cellar Clean-Crafted Wine FAQs). If you have additional ones, please don’t hesitate to…

Scout & Cellar Clean-Crafted Wine Review Whether you’ve been a long time reader or have just started following along, it’s probably no secret that I am a major wino (it’s my not-so-guilty pleasure). If you asked me how I’d spend the perfect summer evening, it would be outside on the deck with a few yummy appetizers and a nice, chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. The downside to being a self-proclaimed wino? The dreaded headache and…

Hi, guys! Happy Thursday to you! I hope you’re having a lovely week. It’s time for another edition of What I’m Loving Lately, but, first, I want to make sure you’ve signed up for my 10,000 Steps a Day Challenge, which starts on Sunday, November 4th. Be sure to mark your calendar! There’s going to be all sorts of motivation, giveaways, and fun to help us achieve our daily goal of accumulating 10,000 steps each…

Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a nice weekend. I’m doing a little catch up this morning with some blog posts from a couple days ago. Let’s rewind to Thursday morning… and go! I woke up ready to eat and immediately made myself two rice cakes – one with sunflower butter and one with peanut butter – and topped them both with ground pumpkin seeds and banana slices. Delicious and filling! After breakfast, I got…

Heyyyyyyy! How’s it going? How’s week #2 of the new year going for you? Here’s another double edition of Monday In Meals! I ended up snapping photos of my meals on Sunday, so I figured I would include them in my weekly Monday In Meals post, so now you can see what I ate on both days with, of course, a few fun family adventures thrown into the mix. Ok, here we go! SUNDAY We got a pretty big snow…

Good morning and very HAPPY Friday to you! What a week. So much happened! Both good and bad. The bad is probably obvious, but the GOOD is that Designed to Fit Nutrition is quickly growing and we’re going along for the ride. It sure is exciting, but, whoa, start-up life is crazy and nerve-wracking, too. We’re definitely in for an adventure! It’s been a week, and I am soooo ready for my PJs, couch, and a big ol’…

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I just wanted to share a quick recap with some “timestamps” from ours. Here we go! SATURDAY 9:53 AM: Partner workout at Salt Shack CrossFit complete! It was a good one for sure. My partner and I split up the reps evenly. And, whoa, my shoulders are sore from the rope climbs. I haven’t done them in awhile! 10:20 AM: Donut date with my favorite…

Good morning, friends! I know that I usually share my What I’m Loving Lately posts on Fridays, but this one was starting to get really packed with favorite things, so I decided to publish it a little earlier this week. There’s a lot that I’m loving lately! Toddler toys – As you guys might remember, our flight to Seattle was quite an adventure. Qman was not a happy camper, despite giving him nearly a dozen new toys…

Heyyyyyy, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! 🙂 Just wanted to share some photos from the weekend as well as this past week to show you guys what we’ve been up to lately and share some great news! At a barbecue yesterday afternoon, Qman got a really good look at our friends’ (cold, not-in-use) fire-pit. Haha! Too cute!  Quinn is a natural at Polish Horseshoes. He understood what to do right away, which was quite entertaining to watch…

Good morning and happy Tuesday, friends! Here’s the next edition of Monday In Meals, a new-ish blog series, where I document what I ate throughout the day on Monday. If you’re a long-time reader, you probably remember the blog’s early days when I used to document allllllll of my meals and snacks, food journal-style, sometimes blogging 3 (!!) times per day. CNC has since morphed into a fitness/lifestyle/family blog, but it’s still fun to return to my…

Hi, friends! Happy Friday! It’s that time again! Time for another edition of What I’m Loving Lately! Here we go… “Flights & Bites” at The Quarry – Mal and I were recently invited to enjoy one of the restaurant’s weekly specials, where you can try a trio beverages paired with appetizers that compliment each glass. Every Wednesday night, a new spirit is featured (scotch, whiskey, rum, and tequila are on the current calendar) and each one has a special theme (i.e. distillery,…

Hey, friends! Happy Monday! Catching up after the weekend? The Breakfast Bake We’re Totally Obsessed With – I share our current favorite breakfast recipe. Early Bird Toddler Dinner at Not Your Average Joe’s – I’m sure the parents can definitely relate to this one! Ok, now that we’re all caught up, here are some photos from our weekend via iPhone. Enjoy!! Playing with Dada at CrossFit – Mal had a snow day on Friday, so he…
