Hey friends! We’ve had a bit of a whirlwind trip over here! I’m still a little exhausted and trying to catch up on everything! My blog feed is out of control! Anywho, back to the fun stuff. The Hubs has had to travel a lot for work the past year and half, which stinks because he usually isn’t home during the week. And although I much rather have him home, one of the benefits is that I often get a short little trip to make sure he is staying out of mischief check out what he’s been up to. Last year I spent a weekend in Mexico and this year I got to head down to Brazil! It was my first time to South America so I was pretty excited! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t so great. Weather.com actually said it was supposed to be 30 degrees Celsius, which is about 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Try 57 degrees and raining! So I wasn’t exactly prepared in terms of my packing. So note to all you potential Brazil travelers, check the weather and don’t use weather.com!
Hi all! It’s Friday! Instead of Food & Fitness this week, however, I’m talking about being a Fit Mama! That’s right! I’m being featured today on Carly’s blog, Fine Fit Day, for Fit Mama Friday!
I’m SO excited about this because:
1.) I haven’t really wrapped my head around the fact that I’m someone’s mama yet. So it’s really kind of cool.
2.) Carly is amazing and I love her blog. She’s an Aussie just like the Hubs. They actually grew up about 35 minutes from each other. Small world!
Hello friends! Guess what!? Today My Own Balance turns two! I can’t believe I have a toddler on my hands.
Seriously though, when I started blogging in 2012 I had no idea what it really meant to have a blog. I just kind of saw a few other blogs and thought, “I can do that.” I had no idea the people I’d meet and how my content would evolve and grow. I had no clue the opportunities that this little space on the internet would open up for me. I started My Own Balance as a way to try to find more balance in my life, which I didn’t feel like I had a lot of working in a law firm. It was a way for me to focus on two things that I find really important: healthy living and enjoying life. Neither of which were supposed to be a priority to me at the time. Things have changed so much since when this blog started but one thing has stayed the same and that is my eternal gratefulness to you all for stopping by here to check out what’s going on!
And because this is fun for me… I like to recap my top posts as selected by my lovely readers:
And a few of my favorites:
2. All of my Video posts (because they are a lot of work!).

Hi there! How’s your week going? I’m nearing the end of my 23rd week today (24 starts tomorrow!) and I feel like I have a good idea of what works and what doesn’t work in terms of prenatal exercise. While I LOVE all of my prenatal DVDs made specifically for preggo ladies, I do still miss some of my pre-pregnancy workouts. Luckily I haven’t had to give them all up! I have already mentioned in a previous post my favorite prenatal workouts, well today I’m going to tell you how I’ve been making prenatal modifications to make them work for my growing belly.*
