Fit Mommy - Lose the Baby Weight Recipe for Success

Good Morning Fit Mommies! =] I hope you guys had a great weekend. As soon as babies and kiddos enter your life it seems like life takes off at super speed and there's never enough time to get laundry done, get ready, pack the diaper bag AND eat! Here are a few of my favorite snacks for on-the-go that both you and the little ones will love. 

Mommy and Me Snacks: baked apple crisps, frozen Greek yogurt pops with agave nectar and Mommy's Trail Mix: whole-grain Cheerios, dried cranberries and sunflower seeds

PORTION CONRTOL - The Kid's Plate. Use a kid-sized plate to check your portion control. (Your meal should be 1/3 protein, 1/3 whole grain and 1/3 veggie.)

    Lose the Baby Weight Checklist

    Start your morning with protein and Omega 3s - you've all heard it before, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Don't skip breakfast - you're body will go into starvation mode and start saving the fat! Always get fueled up for the day ahead! 

    Three snacks a day - never let hunger build! - Veggies and Fruit are AWESOME snacks. 

    Maintain portion control for your dinner      

    Good luck! YOU CAN DO THIS!!

    Logan's Nursery Reveal

    I had so much fun doing Logan's nursery. It came together so nicely and lots easier than I anticipated. Of course Pinterest gave me SO much inspiration. 

    Happy February

    Happy February Friends! =] I took these little cuties last week. I swear I have 5,000 pictures of this girl. But who doesn't have a ton of pictures of their lovey!? I hope you're having a great day!

    Logan 3 Months

    SHAME ON ME! This is a month old! BUT I will be taking her 4 month photo this weekend! =] AND I FINALLY took photos of her nursery! I'll be posting that this weekend.

    Our ped. office doesn't do check ups every month, they do them every other month so I wasn't able to get her measurements. Boo! So we weighed her on the scale at home to get an estimated weight. =] 

    Age: 3 months 
    Height: ? 
    Weight: 14 lbs (ish)
    Head: I have no idea! 
    Milestones: Logan is sleeping in her own room! I was worried she wouldn't sleep through the night if she felt "alone" in her room, but she did great! She is actually sleeping much better. She giggles! Not the big belly laugh that I'm anxiously waiting for but giggles are the cutest thing! And she's rolling over intentionally now.   
    Sleep: Awesome little sleeper! She takes her last bottle around 7.30, I swaddle her up and lay her down. As soon as her little Cloud B sleepy lamb is on and she has her binky she's out in under 5 minutes. I was sooo worried about having this battle of her fighting bed time but I think she really enjoys it! 
    Best Moment: Snuggles! I come home and lay her on my chest and she usually falls asleep on me. =]
    Worst Moment: There really wasn't a bad thing we had to deal with this month. She's a really easy baby.
    Health: She is a happy healthy baby. 
    Eating: She's still a hungry, hungry hippo! She eats 4-5 ounces every 2-3 hours. She's completely on formula now and doing great!
    Teeth: No teeth yet! But drooling and putting EVERYTHING in her mouth.
