Everything You Need to Know About Slow Carbs to Strike Your Best Balance

Since keto and low carb diets are all the rage, I thought it best to have a quick chat about carbs. Specifically, slow carbs. Most plants fall into this category — they’re low-glycemic, so they don’t send your blood sugar or insulin on a rollercoaster ride. You’ll want to eat plenty of them because they have phytochemicals, nutrients, and fiber to fill you up.

On those low carb diets, you’ll have your best results if the few carbs you eat come from non-starchy vegetables and low-glycemic fruits. Here’s what those slow carbs from plant-based foods do for you!

– They’re more nutritious

When you choose the right slow carbs from plants, you get gobs of vitamins and minerals, special plant compounds that heal, and plenty of fiber. The phytochemicals in them are naturally medicinal and bring balance to your health.

– Your blood sugar won’t go nuts

Slow carbs from plants have that high fiber content which mitigates any sugar they contain. That’s why you feel good after snacking on blueberries, but when you dump sugar in your coffee, you don’t.

– They help your gut stay healthy

Another great benefit of slow carbs is that the fiber nourishes your good gut bacteria and cleans your intestines. This helps keep you healthy and your immune system working optimally.

Best Slow Carb Choices

Now that you know about slow carbs, it’s time to add more to your plate. Some are better than others, and it’s essential to understand how to eat them.

With green carbs including asparagus, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, kale, seaweed, and basically any green vegetable — you can eat as much as you want. Then there are whole grains like quinoa, buckwheat, or brown, black, and red rice, and legumes like lentils, soybeans, and chickpeas. You should eat them moderately.

Also on the moderate list are all kinds of berries and stone fruits. While these are wonderful for you, you can limit your intake and focus on filling your plate with green veggies. The starchier foods, such as potatoes and corn, raise your blood sugar more rapidly, so limit those to small portions. The same goes for fruits with high sugars like pineapple, grapes, and melons.

These aren’t hard and fast rules. I understand balance is essential in life, so for me personally, I adhere to filling my plate with mostly green veggies, and enjoying slow carbs in smaller portions. Of course, I leave room for the not-so-healthy carbs too in moderation.

How do carbs make you feel?

Do you feel a difference when you eat carbs or when you limit them?

What’s even more beautiful is we’re all different, so it’s mostly about finding out what your body tells you and listening carefully.

Superfoods That Boost Your Immune System

As the temperature starts to get colder, the sneezing and sniffling noises surround us. Many of us are just expecting to get sick, feeling as if it’s unavoidable. If you eat the right foods and take the proper precautions, you
could strengthen your immune system and avoid getting sick this year. Here are six powerful immune-boosting superfoods that can help your body fight off sickness and infections.

  1. Garlic
    Garlic adds so much flavor to food, but you might want to use it a little extra during this cold and flu season. Once garlic is crushed, it produces a compound called allicin, which has strong anti-bacterial properties. It also boosts your immune response. However, this compound only lasts for a short moment after the garlic is crushed. If you’re seasoning your food with fresh garlic, make sure to eat it shortly after you crush it for maximum benefits.
  2. Matcha
    Matcha is a true superfood. It contains exceptionally high levels of antioxidants, which help your body fight off disease-causing free radical compounds. The antioxidants in matcha boost the function of your immune
    cells and decrease inflammation, which means that if you do get sick, matcha can help alleviate your symptoms. Matcha also contains antimicrobial properties that can fight off any invading pathogens, such as
    viruses and bacteria.
  3. Probiotic-rich foods
    The billions of good bacteria residing in your body are a defense system of their own. However, when we get sick or our immune system is down, the population of good bacteria in our bodies decreases. As a result, the pathogenic bacteria now have space to reside and invade, causing infection and inflammation. By eating probiotics, we are ingesting more of these good bacteria and restoring this defense system. Yogurt, kimchi, kefir, sauerkraut, kombucha, and tempeh are all great sources of probiotics.
  4. Cinnamon
    Cinnamon is a powerful spice that is rich in immune-boosting antioxidants. Antioxidants are some of the most important compounds for strengthening your immune system, so make sure to load up on them to prevent getting sick. Cinnamon also has anti-inflammatory properties, meaning that it can decrease inflammation in your body that is responsible for many of the symptoms you have when you do get sick.
  5. Ginger
    Ginger is not only useful in relieving nausea and digestive issues, but it also contains potent anti-microbial properties that can help the immune system fight off infection. Ginger contains a powerful compound known as gingerol, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
  6. Acai berries
    Acai berries might be challenging to find fresh, but they’re equally as powerful as a powder or frozen. They contain an extremely high number of antioxidants and are one of the most effective free-radical fighting foods on the planet. They also have a high fiber content, which not only aids digestion but also serves as food for those good bacteria in our gut. This means that high-fiber foods, such as acai berries, help increase the population of healthy bacteria in our bodies and, as a result, inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria.

Highly Effective Ways to Lower Stress Naturally

Stress is remarkably damaging to our mental and physical health. Even though we know how serious it is, most of us can’t seem to find an effective way to get rid of it (or at least reduce it). Here are six all-natural, healthy, and highly effective ways to reduce chronic stress in your life.

  1. Exercise
    You’ve probably heard this one before, but exercise is a marvelous stress reliever. Exercising releases endorphins, which are natural compounds in your body that reduce stress and pain. You don’t have to do strenuous or intense workouts to experience this benefit. Try to be physically active every day, whether it is a brisk walk in the sunshine, swimming, or weightlifting at the gym. You might be surprised at how good it makes you feel.
  2. Natural Adaptogen Supplements
    Adaptogen supplements are natural herbs that help your body adapt to stressors in your environment. A common adaptogen is Ashwagandha. Although the stress response might feel as though it’s limited to your mind, your entire body responds to stress. Your heart rate and blood pressure increase, you might have difficulty focusing, and you start breathing rapidly. Adaptogens help calm the nervous system down and are completely natural.
  3. Schedule in “Me-time”
    Although life can get overwhelmingly busy, don’t forget about yourself. Scheduling in “me time” is equally as important as that business meeting or lunch with friends. Take time at least once a week (or as often as your schedule allows) to relax and do things that calm you down. Read a book, have a bath, meditate, or watch a funny movie, and don’t cancel on yourself!
  4. Get Enough Good-quality Sleep
    I can’t stress how important getting enough sleep is for your overall well being. Getting enough quality sleep is proven to reduce feelings of anxiety and stress significantly. You probably know how irritated, frustrated, and upset you can get when you feel exhausted and haven’t slept enough. Make sure you’re getting at least 7 hours of sleep each night.
  5. Eat Healthy, Whole Foods
    The foods you eat can have a tremendous impact on your stress levels— both positive and negative. If you eat processed, sugary junk foods, you will notice that your feelings of stress will only get worse. A diet full of real, nutrient-dense, whole foods can counteract the damaging effects of stress on your body and can help you feel significantly better. Healthy fats (especially omega-3 fatty acids) found in salmon, avocado, nuts, and seeds can help regulate levels of cortisol, your stress hormone.
  6. Calming Essential Oils
    Essential oils are powerful and natural remedies for numerous health problems, from indigestion to stress. Lavender essential oil is well-known for its calming properties. You can put this oil in an aromatherapy diffuser or apply it topically to help you relieve stress and sleep better. Rose oil is also a powerful calming oil that can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. However, be careful as essential oils are very potent, and you don’t want to
    use too much.

Ways you can be more mindful and intentional with your meals

Counting calories, tracking macros, and restrictive dieting, for the most part, all lead to one thing —an unhealthy, negative relationship with food. Food is there to fuel our bodies and satisfy our taste buds. We should love
and enjoy it, not dread it. However, in today’s busy world, we often eat mindlessly, ignoring whatever signals our body is sending us. Here are six tips to help you eat more mindfully.

  1. Before you eat, take some time to breathe and check how you’re feeling:
    This is an important first step towards mindfulness and eating in the present moment. How are you feeling right now? Are you hungry, or are you just thirsty, bored, or stressed? Sometimes, we confuse different
    emotions or thirst for hunger and grab some food without taking time to reflect. Maybe instead you need some water, exercise, meditation, or just some time to destress. Taking a few minutes to breathe deeply can help you stop and reflect on what your body needs at this moment.
  2. Evaluate the food you’re eating:
    Before you take your first bite, take some time to look at the food on your plate, and evaluate its properties. What colors are on your plate, and what textures do you notice? Are they healthy, whole foods, or processed foods? Where did this food come from? Instead of focusing on the quantitative properties (i.e., number of calories, carbohydrates, etc.), focus on the experience of the food. This will help you enjoy it more and be more appreciative of the healthy foods you’re eating.
  3. Eat slowly!
    Eating slowly is not only crucial for mindful eating, but also for aiding digestion. Often, we eat so fast that our brain doesn’t even have time to register that we’re full before we’ve already finished two plates. Put your fork or spoon down between each bite and take your time. This will not only help you better assess when you’re full, but it will also help you enjoy your food more.
  4. Halfway through your meal, stop and assess your hunger levels:
    Often, we only stop to consider how full we are once we have finished all the food on our plates. However, the amount of food on your plate might not be the amount of food you need. Halfway through your meal, stop, and assess whether you are still hungry or whether you are still enjoying the food you’re eating. You don’t need to finish your plate.
  5. Chew your food thoroughly:
    Digestion begins in the mouth. When we chew our food, important digestive enzymes are released with our saliva. Thus, taking time to chew our food is not only important to keep us mindful of the different tastes and textures that we’re eating, but it also improves digestion. When we take time to chew our food, we are also subconsciously slowing down our eating and enjoying the entire experience.
  6. Enjoy your food:
    This is so important—eating should not be a chore, nor should it be something that we only do because we have to in order to live. Eat the foods that both your taste buds and your body enjoy. The more you restrict
    yourself from what you actually want to eat, the more frustrated you will get, and you will probably end up eating it anyway. You might as well just eat it and enjoy eating it!

[RECIPE] Tastes like a cookie, helps you sleep like a baby

I have one of my latest favorite recipes for you today, and it’s perfect for evenings you want a sweet treat and/or are feeling a little stressed.

Herbal “sleepytime” teas like chamomile are great, but sometimes you just want something a little richer and more comforting. This Moon Milk recipe definitely fits the bill.

It’s warm, soothing, and it tastes like a spice cookie! (For real.) Plus, it’s packed with ingredients that are designed to help you beat stress AND get to sleep faster.

The spice mix might look a little intimidating, but please don’t let that stop you.

All of these spices are readily available at grocery stores and they contain so many benefits: cinnamon helps stabilize your blood sugar, turmeric helps eliminate inflammation, and nutmeg contains sleep-friendly phytonutrients.

If you love this recipe as much as I do, it’ll become a regular part of your nighttime routine. And if that’s the case, you can make the spice mix in bulk so it’s ready to go any time you want it! (A serving is about 2 teaspoons of the mix made in bulk, but you can adjust that to taste.)

Notes: I don’t use the honey because this recipe is pretty sweet as-is, but feel free to adjust this to your taste. Organic maple syrup would make a nice variation, too.

Also, ashwagandha – which is an adaptogen that helps your body both relax and handle stress – is available at most supplement stores or online. The recipe is just fine without it, so if you can’t find ashwagandha or you don’t want to use it, no worries!

Golden Moon Milk

  • 1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened cashew, almond or hemp milk
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground clove
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp ground ashwagandha (optional)
  • 1 tsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp raw honey (optional)

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, bring the nut milk to a simmer. While that’s heating, in a small bowl whisk together all the spices and ashwagandha (if you’re using it).

Next, whisk the spices into the milk, making sure to dissolve any clumps. Add the coconut oil and lower the heat, and continue to cook for 7-10 minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool slightly before adding the honey. Pour into a mug and enjoy.

I hope you enjoy it!

Forget about big goals. Do this instead.

This post is all about a very simple (but super powerful) philosophy in business that improves efficiency, creates steady long-term growth, and basically helps you to CRUSH your goals.

But the power of this philosophy goes way beyond business. It also can make a HUGE difference in living a better, healthier and more fulfilled life.

It’s fueled by one simple principle:

Do 1 percent better every day.

You might have heard of kaizen before, which is the idea of doing 1% better every single day. It’s all about small, continuous improvements. When you add them all up, they lead to mind-blowing changes.

What’s even more amazing is that the changes created this way actually “stick.” That’s because they didn’t require any major lifestyle overhauls. Instead, they were built up over a period of time, which means you learn to MANAGE and MAINTAIN them along the way.

And that’s EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT!

Let’s say you want to make improvements in your diet. Instead of changing everything about how you eat, what if you went for the (food pun alert) low-hanging fruit? By that I mean, gradually changing the things that are easiest for you to change?

—> You could swap out your afternoon cookie for a piece of fruit. Your chips could become a handful of almonds. Instead of eating a grab-and-dash granola-bar breakfast, you could blend a protein smoothie.

Not all at once. Just one change at a time, over time. Can you see how before long, as you fold these new habits into your life, they will add up to a HUGE transformation in your life?!

There are lots of great books on the subject. One of the latest that breaks it all down with actionable tips is the bestseller Atomic Habits by James Clear.

It can be tempting to go for the quick fix – and it’s true that you may see some results in the short-term.  But you’re not looking to yo-yo your way through life. You’re looking to make real change that LASTS.

So when it comes to changing your mindset and building new habits that stick, studies show that making smaller changes can be more helpful.

Give the 1% method a go this week, and let me know how it goes!

If you need help with your healthy habits, let’s talk about ways I might be able to help you. Just hit comment below or email me and we can make a time to talk.

Some of the BEST advice I’ve ever heard….

I have a little extra “exercise” for you the next time you get your sweat on.

It all stems from a saying I learned from one of my mentors:

Train how you want to look.

For some reason, that simple saying has stuck with me more than almost any other exercise coaching advice. It stuck with me because it makes such a HUGE difference.

I’ll get into exactly HOW you “train how you want to look” in a second, but first I want to talk about what good posture is and why it matters so much.

Most of us don’t normally give much thought to our posture. It’s automatic – we rely on our muscles to take care of it for us. There are a lot of muscles that are involved in maintaining proper posture, and paying attention to them 24/7 would be overwhelming!

So, what is “good” posture, anyway?

Think of your body like a mountain, with its base at your feet. The mountain rises up tall through the front of your body – your shins, quadriceps, core, chest and shoulders – and then goes down your back, hips, hamstrings and calves.

All of those muscles work together to hold your body in place, keep your balance, etc.

They even can affect your breathing! For example, if your shoulders are rounded forward and your chest muscles are tight, it can be hard to expand your lungs for a deep breath.

That’s why it is super important to think about your posture when you exercise. After all, you are working to make your body STRONGER, and you want to make it stronger in an upright, aligned posture, am I right?

Now, it’s time for that extra “exercise” I mentioned above.

The next time you pick up a set of weights, crank out a set of core exercises, go for a walk or jog, or do any kind of workout, take a good look at your posture. If you can’t do a quick posture check in a mirror, take a moment to at least think about it.

Are you standing tall with your core engaged? Are you grooving good body patterns: shoulders back, chest up, and legs strong?

Or are you reinforcing patterns that you don’t love so much, with your shoulders rounded or your joints locked?

When you start training your body the way you want it to look, you’ll reinforce your mind-muscle connection and you’ll reap the benefits.

Your posture will start to improve 24/7 (even outside the gym), your core will get stronger, fast – and there’s a good chance you’ll notice a boost in your confidence, too.

Who doesn’t want that!?

If you aren’t sure about YOUR posture or you need some guidance, we’re here to help with an assessment or guidance on your workouts.  Just comment below or email me and I’ll back to you to come up with a plan!

How to avoid aches and pains from sitting all day

Anyone who has ever spent a lot of time sitting at a desk – or hunched over their phone or iPad – knows the aches and pains of sitting for too long.

Here’s the thing, though. The dangers of sitting all day extend far beyond just shuffling around for the first few minutes after you stand up.

Just a few days ago I emailed many of my friends and clients to let them know that sitting is likely NOT the new smoking!  But that doesn’t mean it can’t take its toll on your body. (If you would like to be added to the email list comment below!)

If you don’t take a few precautions, it can have a long-term effect on your posture that even has its own scary-sounding name: kyphosis.

Kyphosis when you develop posture that leads to a forward head, rounded shoulders, back pain, muscle stiffness, and pain in your neck. It can even affect muscles around your hips and glutes.

I’ve got some strategies that can help you avoid all of that – because preventing kyphosis is so much easier than fixing it.

The most important thing is to do these exercises consistently – a couple times a day if possible. Set a timer and make it a non-negotiable. Your coworkers should join in, too! Set your alarm on your phone and call it a “posture party!” (joking, but make it fun!)

Keyboard Stretch

If you spend a lot of time keyboarding, this is one you can’t miss. If this causes pain, back off and work to make small improvements. (Note, if you regularly train your chest and shoulders with heavy weights, it’s good for you, too!)

1. Stand tall at the edge of your desk. Place your fingers on the edge of your desk so that your fingers are facing you, your forearms are facing away. (Palms are NOT touching the desk yet.)

2. Being careful not to lock your elbows, with good posture slowly start to lean forward and drop your palms to the surface of the desk. You should feel a stretch along your forearms and wrist. If this causes pain, back off the stretch slightly.

3. Hold for 20-30 seconds. Do this one to three times.

Standing Stretch

1. Stand behind your desk, your right hand on your chair for balance.

2. Bend your left knee and grip your left ankle behind you with your left hand, slowly bringing your heel up toward your left glute muscle.


3. Tighten your glute muscles so you don’t arch your back – this also will intensify the stretch.

4. Try to bring your knees together while maintaining an upright posture, and hold the stretch for 30 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

Seated Stretch

1. Sit tall in your chair, both feet flat on the floor.

2. Keeping your right foot on the floor, bend your left knee and place your left ankle on your right thigh, just above the knee, so that your legs form the top of the number 4.

3. Remain sitting tall as you keep your left foot flexed, and slowly press your left knee gently downard, feeling a stretch in the outer part of your left hip. You can lead forward gently for extra fun. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat on the other side.

Upper Body Stretch

This one will have your coworkers wondering what you’re doing, but it’ll feel so good you won’t care!

1. Standing tall, abs braced, perform a hip hinge (bending from the hips, not the waist) so that your upper body bends forward, toward your thighs. Let your arms hang in front of you as you relax to feel a stretch in your hamstring muscles.

2. Take a few deep breaths and re-engage your abs, standing tall as you reach your arms out to your sides until they are shoulder height. As you do this, rotate your thumbs backward so your palms face up.

3. As you feel the front part of your body stretch, tighten your glutes to protect your back and imagine your thumbs pointing at each other behind you. Stop if you feel pain, but you should feel the muscles of your upper back “pinch” together.

4. Hold for a few breaths, and repeat this exercise 5 times.

Hope these help! Consistency is the key. Over time, you will notice that it becomes easier to sit tall throughout the day, and nagging pains may go away!

Resistance training also helps. Keeping a strong back, core and shoulders will help you avoid posture issues as you get older.

Taking a Step Back…

Even those who seem the strongest have set backs.

Superman had kryptonite, Aquaman was lack of water, Green Lantern was yellow, Shazam was saying his own name… all things that caused them pain…

Mine is comparison. I compare myself to other trainers – I compare myself to the abilities of others or their highlight reels, a.k.a. social media.

Do you know what my word for 2019 is? CONFIDENCE… and I have not felt less confident than I do right now. And here is the kicker – it is not because others have it together and I don’t. It is not because I have a lack of knowledge.

It is because MY priorities are out of whack. It is because I have compared myself to what others have going on… It is because I am having a hard time prioritizing important things in my life – because I am so focused on scrolling through other peoples, businesses (etc) highlight reel…

A friend was over and was watching me look at my phone and mentioned to me, “You scroll so fast, do you even stop to look at anything?” And here is why I don’t – and it is a personal issue… if I stop for a certain moment of time to look at someone else’s snap shot of their life, then I start to compare and over analyze my own life… and the standards I have placed on myself…

So this is what I need to do for ME… My Husband, My Daughter, My Family, My Friends… I am taking a BREAK from social media. I am taking a BREAK from things that DRAIN my energy.

I will still be around to answer emails, answer texts, answer calls… but as far as social media goes – you wont see me… I just need this time to recharge, revamp, and restructure ME.

If you need me – I am STILL HERE FOR YOU… lifestridefitnesstraining@gmail.com.

Truth About MY Transformation

Here is the truth about my transformation – piece by piece… and total honesty!

IMG_7143[1]
On the way to the Hospital
This picture was taken while I was on the phone with my mom telling her that we were no our way to the hospital – actually we were on our way to the food court at the mall because I knew I was not going to get anything but ice chips for a while and that was just not going to give me the energy to push… So I had a Cheese Steak and fries… and it was GLORIOUS! I didn’t even feel bad about it, even when I expelled it later right before I was operated on… #noregrets!

XLKP3692[1]
Feeling happy
I was the heaviest I had ever been… but HELLO! I had a little girl in my belly that was growing! Even at two weeks early she was still over 7 lbs! I can tell you that I ENJOYED my pregnancy! I ate what I wanted, when I wanted… which to be honest consisted of Whataburger cheese burgers and small Dairy Queen Heath Bar Blizzards (there was one that had just opened on the way home… it was dangerous). In this picture I believe I was 185… I think – I don’t remember exactly – and to be honest… I still don’t care! I did make fun of myself that I weighed the same as my husband and I am only 5 feet tall…

IMG_7511[1]
3 Months PP
This was January 1 2017. Still swollen – but slowly getting down… I was back to work full time, my mom was able to watch my sweet baby during the day – and I was well on my way to getting back into shape. (Notice I said nothing about my “body back” or anything of that nature… This was the time that I also decided that I was going to start my Personal Training Certification – here is the kicker – I had a 3 month old… maybe not the smartest decision I have made – but there I was – FULL STEAM AHEAD!

IMG_9487[1]
6 Months PP
Here I am feeling a little discouraged. Not feeling like the progress I was making was showing. Self doubt was creeping in. I took a week or two off. Gave myself a mental break from the work out schedule I had created for myself. With being a new mom, working full time, and studying to be a NASM CPT – my time was stretched so thin!

IMG_9211[1]
Lost track of timing
I did not let myself stay in a funk for long. I did get back to it. Reorganized my “life” schedule so that I could make the most of my awake hours and get as much as I could accomplished. The more I was able to accomplish – the more I felt like myself again. Cleaning House, getting a load of laundry done (washed, dried, and folded/hung-up), finishing a chapter in my study, fixing a homemade dinner – all were accomplishments!

IMG_8985[1]
Feeling stonger
I learned to be nice to myself. Life is not about being rigid with a routine. Sure routines help me and routines are nice to have – but I stopped beating myself up. I stopped worrying about if things didn’t get done according to my schedule. If I was not a size I thought I should be by now. I started enjoying the process.

IMG_4274[1]
Fit
This is me now. I am over 2 years past giving birth – and how did I do it?

  • No pills
  • No wraps
  • No teas
  • No “special supplements”
  • No dieting – I literally have eaten what I want… but I regulate my portions
  • No frozen or prepackaged “lean meals”
  • No rigid workouts
  • No counting calories
  • No weighing weekly… I literally MAYBE weighed myself once a month…
  • No gimmicks WHATSOEVER!

Here is the deal – if you want something to stick – you have to make a lifestyle out of it. You have to make a choice to make SOME changes… and not to change it all at once. You have to learn to live life in a healthy way – not a RESTRICTIVE WAY!

I wrote all my own workouts – I ate intuitively (that is more for another post) – I LIVED LIFE! I enjoyed cake, drinks with friends, chips and queso… I learned how to buy groceries and make food that tasted great and was healthy too! I CHANGED MY MINDSET – and it does not happen overnight, it is a slow process… but WHO SAID YOU HAVE TO DO IT ACCORDING TO ANYONE ELSE’S TIME LINE? (Unless your doctor is advising you – that is a different story – always listen to your doctor or get a second opinion etc.)

Bottom line – I learned how to be HAPPY… I found my HAPPY place…

And if you are an EVERYDAY kinda WOMAN like me… I can help you… YOU can FIND your happy too! I WANT you to be HAPPY! I WANT YOU TO BE WHOLE!

Reach out to me and let’s help you get stated RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE NOW! Don’t wait – your time is too precious to spend any more of it unhappy!

XOXO Meggs (PS I am now 123.8 – smaller than I was before I was pregnant…)

IMG_4294[1]
Happy
