Ask me anything

A newly married and newly mommied fitness freak (and foodie) with a smart mouth and enough "joie de vivre" for days. I lost 30lbs before I got pregnant and gained 40 during my pregnancy. Now...I'm back in the game, trying to shed these last 15-20lbs of baby weight while being an awesome wife and mother (or...trying to be)!

Taking a Tumblr hiatus

I know, I know…it’s sooo the cliche thing to do these days. Honestly…I just need a social media break. I have too many avenues to check and admittedly Tumblr falls by the wayside. Plus, I already either follow a ton of you on other outlets or I’m friends with you on Facebook so…

If you want to keep in touch and continue to see Sophia in all her cuteness as she gets older, follow me on Instagram and Twitter @nchristinegrec. Or if you really love me, send me a message with your Facebook URL and I’ll add you. ;-)

Ciao, bellas.

When my wife asks me if I want to put away the dishes or entertain the baby for a little bit.

daddy-newbie:

Iā€™m like:

The Office gif

Me and Noel. Every day. Be it “cook dinner,” “do laundry,” “get her bath ready…” I could go on.

I’m going to a muffin swap on Sunday

My “working moms” group is hosting a muffin swap; muffins that make good, healthy breakfasts for moms and kids alike (though I’m sure it’s more for the moms). I would like to make mini muffins. I need to make like 4-5 dozen to share with everyone.

Please share your muffin recipe with me…as long as it’s not banana, chocolate chip, or pumpkin (those are already covered). Thanks in advance!

Bucket List

1.) Attend a fashion show or two at NYC Fashion Week.

2.) Run a marathon.

This is a living post. It will be edited and added to. Often. Well…as I think of things.

Very important to have a stash of post-workout recovery snacks in your Jeep. You know…and at least 4-5 varieties. Totally normal. #fitmama šŸ’Ŗā¤ļø

The Universe is telling me something...

Me:Hi, can I have a half dozen donuts (for Sophia's daycare teachers): 2 heart shaped cookie dough, 2 heart shaped strawberry, and 2 glazed?
Him:Anything else?
Me:Yes, an extra cookie dough donut on the side in a bag please? And a medium coffee with skim milk and 2 splenda.
Him:Ok, pull around.
*pays and gets one box of 6 donuts and a coffee*
Me:I ordered an extra donut, too.
Him:I thought you only said 6 donuts.
*checks receipt to find extra donut was not included in order*
Me:Oh...yeah, only 6 donuts. Thank you. *drives away with all the sads*
Universe:NO DONUT FOR YOU, FATTY!!

Goodbye

insidemelookingout:

This has been a long time coming. I have been in constant thought as of late about closing this blog and starting in a fresh new space.

I have spent the past 4 years in this space and feel like I have out grown it. There are a lot of things with in the pages of this blog that I really want to…

Love this girl something fierce. If you didn’t follow her, you truly missed out.

See you in Insty land, mama! Xoxo

An excellent article from the Jan/Feb issue of #womenshealth. I’m sure I’ve been an offender outside of my blog, but at least I realize it. The only one you should be competing with in health and fitness is yourself.
