I get asked pretty often what our meals and snacks look like these days so I thought this would be a fun post. Lately, I have been really trying to make an effort to keep healthier snack foods on hand (mainly for my own sake so I don’t binge on tortilla chips the second I get Grayson to sleep). A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
Also – and this is another post in and of itself – Grayson is quite the eater now! The kid eats practically everything and has solid meals three times a day (I am also still breastfeeding). Keeping cut up healthy food ready makes his meals and snacks a lot easier. That way I don’t have a kid in a high chair wailing at me while I chop up fruit or defrost soup.

If I had to summarize my early 20’s, I would say one big word: FITNESS. I was really into working out, ran all the races, did all the power yoga, loved spin classes, ate super duper clean all the time…yada yada yada. Looking back, I was in really great shape but I was also, like, twenty one. Ahhhh youth.
I fell off the fitness bandwagon in my mid 20’s. I went through a personal family trauma, moved to California on my own, started dating someone new, ate out a ton, traveled a ton, quit running but did lots of yoga. I even became yoga teacher certified and taught a group of women in my community once a week. I didn’t go to the gym practically at all and didn’t miss it one single bit.
As I near 30 with my first babe about to turn one (!!), I find myself getting back in the fitness saddle once again. I’ve pretty much lost all my pregnancy weight and don’t have any huge goals to share. I feel like I was able to stay pretty fit through my pregnancy and postpartum, due largely to Barre3 online workouts. However, I feel like it’s the right time and season for something new, something to push myself a little bit. I can’t blame exhaustion any more for reasons why I don’t exercise (except maybe for this week between jet lag, teething and a baby with a cold…hah) and I really want to gain more energy, something that’s been lacking in my life for a little while.
