Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a successful start to the week.  I just wanted to hop on and share my meal prepping and grocery shopping this week.  I may have gotten a little bit too ambitious with my meal prep this week or maybe I was just feeling a bit tired. Meal prepping isn’t hard as long as your organized. Just carve out some time of your day to get it done (2 hours) and you should be good. Also, find different ways of cooking things so everything doesn’t need to go in the oven. Here’s what is on… View Post

My baby (to be known as Tiny Tot) turned 1 and a half (in mom terms 18 months). I’ve never really had to opportunity to talk about her much on the blog because I didn’t think there was a place for it. Guess what? It’s the place for it now. I’ve been blessed to be able to spend time with my child and still work full-time. Sometimes it’s challenging and sometimes it’s just not easy. There are days when I do have to depend on the care of others to help me out, but for the most part, she’s with… View Post

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
