Workout Wednesday’s- Coming SOON!

Dare To Share!

It’s almost the new year, and I don’t know about you, but I’m still thinking of all the resolutions I put off last year!

Fitness and health, are one thing I do not put off. For me working out, as much as I hate it sometimes, is necessary to my sanity! Physical activity keeps my brain from exploding with five kids running around. My health is also important to me, and I take pride in the fact that people “can’t believe I have had 5 babies!”

Therefore, with my blog being called Big Fit Fam, and all, I have decided that in the new year Wednesday’s will be focused on fitness and health.

Whether that means workout recommendations, health tips, recipes, diet info, or even new workouts created by me and my collaborator from Puga Athletic’s and Fitness, Wednesday will have something to help kickstart or continue your own regimen!!

I am super excited to start this series. I have to admit that with so much stress and disappointment over the last couple of months, I have let my health slip a bit. For example, I am currently on a mission to increase the water I drink and decrease my sugar intake.

If you know anything about me you know I DO NOT believe in cutting out fun foods, you’ll just end up binging on them. However, I have pretty much replaced meat with chocolate since Thanksgiving and THAT is not healthy folks. Haha.

I hope you all enjoy this new series! Please let me know what you think, and/or if you have any suggestions for posts you would like to see, leave a message in the comments!

Dare To Share!

Following a lovely visit to the Lady Doctor the other day that required recovery via a box of wine a small dark room and music by Sarah McLachlan, I got to thinking.  I had felt this way before, and not just after a pelvic exam.  The preparation, the visit, the aftermath….all these things women go through during their yearly gyno visit correspond closely with what occurs on a first date….It’s no wonder so many people are choosing to be single!

So here are 7 similarities between my visit to the Lady Doc and first dates: Continue reading “7 Reasons Going To The Lady Doctor Is Like A First Date”

FAF: Must Have New Years Apparel

Dare To Share!

Welcome to Fabulous Amazon Fridays! I love sharing my expertise and personal style, and what better way to do that than through one of the largest online shopping networks available today!

New Years Eve requires a certain style. One wants to look beautiful and sexy, however, ringing in the new year with an outfit that screams “slut” is not a great start!

Thus, we are going for a look that is both classy and inviting.

1. Every lady needs the perfect little black dress. This one has a wonderful vintage feel that I simply adore!

5. Every beautiful dress needs a great pair of shoes to match! I have an affinity for boots this time of year, so my first pick are these great chelsea boots! I tend to prefer black, but these are so cute that brown still takes the cake! These would go great with the red sweater dress!

6.  Another great chelsea boot, but this time in favorite color; black! I love the hint of of sequins at the top and bottom of the zipper!

8. This is the last boot, and another chelsea style.

I can’t get enough!

9. I better throw in some pumps for those of you without my boot obsession! I love the bling on these classy, closed toe heals, and the ankle straps do great things for your calves!

I had to throw these in. While alone, these colors might seem a bit extreme, but with a sexy black dress they are perfect!

Mom’s Favorite Things…A Mockery of Everything “Julie Andrews”

Dare To Share!

Push the play button at the bottom and sing along with us! These are every mom’s favorite things!

White wine and red wine and cocktail creations
Shiny beer bottles and child free libations
Quiet, tipsy moments that nighttime ever brings
These are a few of mom’s favorite things!

Polished, clean potties and laundry all folded
swept floors, and lawn mowed, and children pre-scolded
Offspring that bow to their parents like kings
These are few of mom’s favorite things!

Girls in potato sacks and boys playing nicely
Children who make their beds up quite precisely
Sisters and brothers who leave out verbal stings
These are a few of mom’s favorite things!

When the dog barfs, when our ears ring
When you’re screaming mad
Just simply remember mom’s favorite things
And then you can blame their dad!

Spicy bloody mary’s and a personal cook
Hot bubble baths and new romance book
Children who do chores happily without strings
These are a few of mom’s favorite things

Cuddles with littles and blankets all cozy
Sweet tiny kisses and cheeks red and rosey
Jolly little voices and tears when they sing
These are a few of mom’s favorite things

Chocolate well hidden so no one can find it
Christmas gifts wrapped with tight ribbon to bind it,
Guests that arrive with much wine under wing
These are a few of mom’s favorite things

When no one sleeps, when your job clings
When your man’s a cad,
Just simply remember mom’s favorite things
And then you can blame their dad!

I love Amazon, it is the best place to find of the most AMAZING and, often, overlooked products out there. It is also a place to find some of the weirdest stuff, things you might not think you want or that would be perfect for that funny office gift exchange.

Ugly sweaters are definitely one of the latter. No matter how ugly they are though, I still have a special place in my heart for them…In fact I may have just ordered #10 on this list!
