I’m searching for some summer salads!  I’ll probably revive this search for year round, but I don’t always have access to a microwave for lunch so I’m looking for foods that I can eat without warming it up.  Also, I’m not always wanting to eat a “traditional” salad because let’s be honest, a girl can only eat so much lettuce. There might be a twisted misconception that a salad must always look a certain way.  I will admit, I do not always like eating the traditional salad but it’s something gravitate to because it’s easy. My go-to no warm up… View Post

Welcome to Mom Works It Out! You probably haven’t noticed but I’ve changed the name of the blog. It’s been a hard decision because I’ve been We Beat Fat for so long but I really feel like it was time to change. We Beat Fat hasn’t been a WE for a long time. Yes, it was a place to chronicle our healthy living but it was more about Angela and less about Willie. He took his hand at blogging and decided it wasn’t the place for him. We lost weight as a couple and started living a healthy life but… View Post

There’s been so much talk lately about mental health lately with the passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. I was a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain and one day I hope to be able to tell a story like him.  That death hit me a little harder, but it also opened up some emotions in me.  People committed suicide every day and I’m glad there is focus on mental health right now.  But I feel like we should be focusing on this more than what we do and I don’t mean by giving out a suicide prevention number. I’m… View Post

Confession:  I’ve run more in the past nine days than I have in past two months.  I’ve had the baby and things haven’t seemed to be working right since then.  It’s been a struggle for me and I know it’s the culmination of a lot of different things, but I know my running form definitely has something to do with it. Before I always said I didn’t have time to run so it went on the back burner. There’s some truth in that so that’s why I wanted to do this #streakingwiththeCoolKids thing. Basically, I have to run or walk… View Post

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t my first time but this was the first time I’ve meal prepped this hard since early pregnancy.  But the good thing is I’m prepared for the week and I don’t have much to worry about. Gosh, I don’t remember it being so much work but I’ve been out of practice.  I still need to get back in the habit.  Plus, I made some more “complicated” meals than normal. I tried to prep most of the meals so I wouldn’t have anything to worry about.  I’m trying to stay on track and be focused on a… View Post
