Enjoying the last bits of Spring Break

Enjoying the last bits of Spring Break

Tomorrow’s Easter and we noticed the Bunny just put the finishing touches on some gifts for the boys. For the last week they have been counting down the days awaiting the arrival of a holiday bearing sweets and gifts, meanwhile we’ve been trying to slow down time since we know Easter Sunday will mark the last day of my near-two-week vacation. It has been a...
Changing the Game

Changing the Game

Years ago we used to actively blog a lot about our day-to-day life. Back before there were over 100k social media followers and several media platforms that we managed, before the blog was “a resource for the community” we used to share our lives; before we had a team of people employed to help us keep up. In preparing for this today’s newsletter...
I Am NOVA’s Strongest Woman

I Am NOVA’s Strongest Woman

I’d like to start this story back in 2010, when I weighed 336lbs after the birth of my 3rd child. After a lifetime of morbid obesity, the 3rd pregnancy had been extremely difficult. Early on I’d almost lost Wesley, which I haven’t ever really talked about, and through my 2nd and 3rd trimester I was incredibly overburdened with my own weight – even...
Butter Pecan Apples & Whole Life Challenge Results

Butter Pecan Apples & Whole Life Challenge Results

It’s been nearly 2 weeks since I finished my first Whole Life Challenge. As I posted about earlier, I would never have done a “paleo challenge” if it wasn’t something NOVA Strength & Conditioning was doing as a community. With a history of eating disorders, strict plans with rules often overwhelm me and cause me to have disordered eating....

I Am Strong

I Am Strong

Warning: gratuitous fitness photos, videos and soap box rants ahead. It all started with a declaration. I want to be strong. ♥ On July 22, 2013 – 7 months ago – I made a commitment to myself that I would stop worrying about losing weight and start worrying about gaining strength.  I realized that my body wasn’t made for running, it was made for lifting....
N’Oatmeal Cookies

N’Oatmeal Cookies

We’re a cookie family. You might not realize that because there aren’t THAT many cookies on the blog, but we love cookies. In Eat Like a Dinosaur we made dozens of test batches of (the now famous) Anytime Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cookies to get them just right, because we care that much about the quality of a good, chewy cookie. We don’t end up...
Spaghetti Carbonara Quiche

Spaghetti Carbonara Quiche

Over the past four years or so, we’ve become the hub of Christmas brunch. Every year, both of our families descend on our house Christmas morning for present unwrapping, mimosa drinking, and brunch eating. This is our fun family tradition that we intend to keep on doing for years to come. And one of the things I like doing is creating something new that my family...
How to Have It All: 10 Tips from Stacy on Time Management

How to Have It All: 10 Tips from Stacy on Time Management

One of the questions we hear so often on this blog and social media is an inquiry as to how we possibly do “it all”. Run the site, write books, do the podcast, do interviews, travel, all while Stacy has a demanding job and Matt runs the household containing 3 of our own active boys.  We realize the question is rhetorical… but for the sake of offering...
Gelatin Jigglers Fruit Snacks – Healthy Nourishing Gummies

Gelatin Jigglers Fruit Snacks – Healthy Nourishing Gummies

One of the things that Stacy learned when she was in California was that there are some of you out there that refer to her as “The Broth Lady.” I guess that’s understandable. I mean, I’ve named an entire line of soups after her and she does constantly posts photos like this and started the #bonebrothheals hashtag. Now the reason she’s...
