Prenatal Multi

I’m very open in admitting that my first two pregnancies were not at all healthy. With Arianna, I was stressed out and lost weight, living on crackers and tacos between [nine-month] morning sickness. With Evan, I was in a happy place and ate and ate and ate my way to my heaviest weight through [nine-month] morning sickness. Taking a Prenatal Multi Vitamin just did not happen. I could not swallow or handle the taste of “horse pills”. keep reading

Healthy Fried Green Tomatoes

Remember the other night when I really wanted to share with you the post about our dinner? Thanks for holding out on me, because I think you will find it worth it. I present…

Healthy Fried Green Tomatoes

These were a hit in my family, and hopefully you’ll take a half an hour out of your summer and give them a try, too. For the record, I stress again that they were a hit because Greg did not like tomatoes at all when I met him. So much so, I couldn’t hold them down when I was pregnant with Evan. And I love tomatoes, y’all. (Have you met my other kid who plants cherry tomatoes just so she can eat them all summer long?) So trust me on the tomatoes. Here’s what I need you to do. keep reading

A Newer Me

If you follow me on Facebook, I know some of you are probably like “oh, no. Not another Becky post”…

BUT I have to share the fillings my cup got last week, and that means more and more sharing from this shareaholic. More about my daily life (which isn’t always gravy, and you need to see that side of me). More about the kids (have you liked my blog Facebook page?). More about the bags and accessories I am obsessed with. More about the God who made me, molded me, and saved me (and proved to Greg Willis and I TWO TIMES yesterday that He has our back). And more about my fit life and, yup, weight loss and motivation for YOU to be the healthy you that’s right for you. keep reading

Wheat Germ Recipes

Remember the other day when I shared the benefits of wheat germ with you? Well, Kretschmer Wheat Germ was kind enough to share some recipes with me (to give you yinz). While we’re all on the “whoa, pigged out at 4th of July, time to get back in my summer shape” train (no? just me?), why not offer up some healthy options. keep reading

5 Ways to Have a Heart

I am not going to lie. Greg scared me a bit last night. He indulged in a dinner meant to be shared among three friends. Coming from a family with a history of heart disease, I wasn’t thrilled and let him know he is gross. Between that and it being American Heart Month, I thought blogging about heart was a great idea tonight.  keep reading
