Guilt Free Meals Reviews & Giveaways

  • No More Skipped Lunches (A Lean Pockets Post)

    August 15, 2016
    As soon as my feet hit the floor every morning I feel like it's a race against the clock...everyday. Get everyone up, dressed, and fed. Take the dog out, change the laundry, let the dog in. Empty the dishwasher, load the dishwasher. Take the kids to the library, to visit grandma, and stop by the grocery store on the way home.
  • Moms Who Work Harder Get Stuff Done (With a Little Help)

    August 15, 2016
    I am a driven person. Dangle a goal in front of my face, and you better believe I will work my behind off to achieve it. From a young age, I remember carefully listing all my goals and reveling in the satisfaction of having achieved them, whether those goals were to win a spot on the varsity softball team or graduate top of my class. This trait has served me well -- in school, in my full-time career, and in parenting.
  • Plan Your Work, and Work Your Plan

    August 15, 2016
    Are you a planner? I am. I actually describe my self as a "Super Planner". I cannot function without a plan. I live by my Dad's motto: "Plan your work and work your plan." I plan out everything - work and personal. I already have our Christmas vacation planned and booked. I typically book our trips 6 to 12 months in advance. Once I've booked the hotel room, I go back periodically to the hotel website to see if the rates have dropped. I've saved hundred of dollars by checking rates after we've booked.
  • Lean Pockets and a Giveaway

    August 15, 2016
    Have you tried Lean Pockets before? I recently tried out Lean Pockets for the first time and am sharing my experience today and also hosting a giveaway at the end of this post! I purchased and tried Lean Pockets White Meat Chicken Jalapeno & Cheese with a pretzel bread crust. The description immediately appealed to me. I love pretzel bread, chicken and cheese, and I couldn't quite believe that something that sounded so gooey and delicious could actually be a sensible meal option.
  • 5 Quick, Satisfying Meals for Busy Moms

    My life as a mom is about to get busy: School is starting. This is my first year navigating through life with a child in elementary school. My son is starting Kindergarten this year and I'll be honest, I'm nervous. For all of the obvious reasons of course (will he like it? will he make friends? will he miss me?) but also because our laid back life is about to get a lot more structured.
  • Tips for Meeting Goals While Balancing Work and Family Life

    August 15, 2016
    Balance can be so difficult to find for busy parents! As a blogger who has been trying to both maintain and build my site while also leaving plenty of time for family and family commitments, it has become an especially difficult balance lately. This is especially ironic because everyone kept asking me what I was going to do with all of my spare time once we moved from homeschooling our kids to them going to school.
  • For Busy, Body-Conscious Moms, There Is Still Satisfaction to Be Had!

    August 15, 2016
    Ever since my five-year-old called me fat and made me take a good hard look at myself, I've been working hard to make better food choices. I've been adding more fruits and vegetables into my diet and going for more walks in an effort to get some actual exercise into each day. Of course, with three young kids running around the house, it isn't as easy to stay as healthy as I'd wish.
  • Let's Talk Baby Weight.

    August 15, 2016
    Yeah, we're going there today. With a couple of numbers. Before I got pregnant last year, I was actually in great shape. I'd say the best shape I had been in since our wedding day. I was exercising regularly and watching what I ate. I was feeling absolutely wonderful in my own skin for the first time in a long time.
  • Lean Pockets for My Writing Breaks and On the Go + Sweepstakes

    August 15, 2016
    I'm totally into healthy eating. It's really important that when I'm home I do my best to not only watch my caloric intake, but make sure I'm getting nutritious meals. When we travel, we don't always have the option to eat super healthy and by the time we're home, we're ready for healthier choices. That's why I always have Lean Pockets in the freezer. They are a no-brainer when my head is filled with a million other things.
  • A Glimpse into My Daily Life

    August 15, 2016
    Every morning I wake up refreshed to start the day. Ha! I only wish the above statement were true. Sleeping between two velcro puppies like a human contortionist doesn't really leave you feeling fresh as a daisy -although Chip, on the other hand, begs to differ. After quickly reading e-mails and taking the pups for their morning walk, I usually head into the garden for about an hour. My biggest hobby provides me with so much happiness and I love being able to do it early in the morning.
