Bragging & I don't care!

This is it people! Today's the day my main squeezy is DONE with his undergrad degree! This is such a huge accomplishment for our family! Avery has college graduates as parents! Whoop-whoop, Hello awesome role models!!!!! Finally, Bryce will be home after work, no more late nights on campus, no more missing dinner time! {Side Note, This means I actually need to up my cooking skills; it was way less to worry about when I only had to impress Avery!} I am so over-the-moon excited about this and trust me Bryce is too! Bryce already has a great job as a Mechanical Engineer so the degree really isn't about money! It's about the gratification baby, we did it! We  both finished our undergrad degrees and now when we preach to Avery the importance of higher education, it's not like calling the kettle black!

Also, I have been working my butt off to get into shape since having Avery. For those of you who don't  already know me, I love health and fitness. {I still am not sure why I didn't get a degree in this?!} I by no means have the body of my dreams, but I can finally say I'm getting there! The scale has not moved in 9 months, but I 'think' my body is transforming! My goal as a mother is after every child I have to strive for a better body then I had prior! That's a BIG goal, but totally attainable! Hard work and dedication is all it takes, an hour at the gym is all I need to focus on myself. Even when I don't see change week after week, I could never give up a healthy lifestyle. I want my kids to know the importance of exercise and healthy eating habits! I love hearing people perspectives on health and fitness! For me it's not a diet, it's a way of living! It's one thing I have complete control over and so do you! 

Of course there are still areas I want to work on... but that's me totally raw and accountable!
Get Fit, Get Active and take control of YOU!


I still can't believe I actually posted a picture of me in my HONEYMOON swim suit! Less than 3 weeks baby & I'm totally rocking this body!


  1. Congrats to your husband!! That is truly the most amazing feeling to be DONE! I still can't believe I am voluntarily going BACK to school, but I am actually pretty excited :) and you look amazing! It has been hard for me to adjust to how DIFFERENT my body is post baby.. I have never had hips in my life! Love the motivation to rock it out :) Excuse me as I go work out during nap time...

  2. I fell ya girl! I am so anxious to go back for my Masters, but we want to elminate all debt before I go down that road again!!! And thanks for the sweet words,there is a lot up there that I want to improve on, but I am getting closer everyday to loving my new "post-baby" body!

  3. You look amazing! I am striving to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, just 15 more stubborn pounds to go! Before I had kids, I could eat anything my heart desired and I would actually lose if I even smell cookies I gain weight. LOL! Keep up the good work:)

  4. Thanks Amy!! Luckily getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight was so easy! Actually effortless for me. But getting my body to look proportionate & less saggy is my issue! I'm working on it. Food is the hardest part! Life is no fun if you don't eat & enjoy it! Right?...

  5. You look great! I'm having a hard time getting this weight off this time around. After Rylie it came off so easy. This time, not so much. I still have 10 pounds to go and I am totally busting my butt! More power to ya girl!

  6. Thanks! But I think you look pretty damn awesome! You looked amazing during pregnancy too! I bet my next will be harder to shed the pounds too. That is what scares me. I can't even get my body to feel normal after 11 mo and one kid, let alone what happens after more! BUT thats what happens when we have babies and I wouldn't change that for the world. A little body alteration is okay, as long as I have my babies to hold & love on!
