Ask me anything   About ME   

This is a tumblelog with short-form, mixed-media posts with stuff I like. I'm 22 + Catholic + wifey + mommy. Scroll down a bit to start reading my virtual journal. Things I like include: pb&j + Catholicism + writing + literature + recipes + health + being a mom. Enjoy.

Feel the life stir inside you. Cradle your child within your womb from conception to birth and show them the beauty and wonder of life.

Tomorrow I will officially be 9 months pregnant. 

When baby gets the wiggles like this little one^ IT HURTS. 

She’s running out of room! [and I’m running out of patience… just want to meet her already!]

Being fit isn’t about body size or shape. It’s about optimizing your body’s potential to do awesome shit like this.

this is so inspirational.

For real. I am so tired of people equating fit to being thin. Fuck that.

this is the first time i’ve seen this posted with body positive messages.  great!

As someone who has done gymnastics in various forms, his height is incredible. Check out where his head is - nearly chest level! And he drops his legs down so easily, arms tucked back casually. 
Rock on, dude. You’re amazing. 

I hate that “you can’t be fat and fit” bullshit because it cuts an entire body type out of the equation.
People typically fall into three categories: ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph. Ectomorphs are skinny, wiry people with fast metabolisms who build lean muscle (think track runners or gymnasts). Mesomorphs are of the archetypal athletic body type that builds muscle while burning fat; they become bodybuilders and hunky actors.
Endomorphs, the third category, are always dismissed as unhealthy for the bullshit reasons I will detail: While they gain body fat easily, they gain muscle just as easily. But since it develops under a layer of fat you can’t see it. This doesn’t mean it’s not there. An endomorph could be a bear-wrestling Appalachian trail-hiking badass and people would still look at them and think “wow look at that fatass I bet they never move”. Bitch have you ever seen a linebacker they’re fat and they run just as much as the other guys on the team. Which is another point: endomorphs can do cardio and still be fat. Their bodies don’t let go of fat without a fight and the lengths they’d have to go to in order to lose most or all of their body fat (too much exercise, too little food) could in fact be detrimental to their health. Hell, I know a cross-country hiker with a beer belly who runs six miles a day without breaking a sweat.
tl;dr the notion that body fat automatically equates to poor muscle and cardio health is a notion that only works under the assumption that everyone is naturally ectomorphic or mesomorphic. This is not true thus this idea is wrong and stupid.

THERE IS SOME REALLY GOOD INFO IN THIS POST

😳😳😳😳😳Dude I can’t even do that so seamlessly. Geez.

A bottle of red made with data.Finding the perfect wine used to mean going to a good wine store, discussing your future meal with a sales person and trying to remember the wine the next time you buy. Now all you have to do is go to a website, like that of Bordeaux-based fine wine merchant Millesima. With data, they can help any customer, anywhere in the world, select the right bottle, for the right meal, the right climate, time of year, you name it. Plus you don’t have to soak off the label to remember the name and vintage when you want to buy it again. Explore more stories →

Can’t wait until I give birth to our little girl… then I can have a big ol’ glass of celebratory wine!

Yesterday, I was in a tanktop.
Today I’m in a scarf and coat. 
I hate Ohio weather. 
Take me back to Cali where 350 days a year, its sunny, between 65-80 degrees, and there is only the occasional “May Grey” and “June Gloom”
