Weekly Goodness:: Take 51

Happy Friday everyone!! It has been a long time since I’ve done a Weekly Goodness post. Not for a lack of goodness, more of a lack of time 😉 JoMarie is deciding to nap today after a tough night of sleep, and I for some reason am WIDE awake, so I thought I would pop in to say hello to MyGoodness readers! I’m sure you can guess what my main goodness going on around here is 🙂 you guyssssss, she’s just too stinking cute and we can’t get enough of her. I have a full post coming up about being a first time mommy so far and how she’s doing...

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind

Well hello!! A little healthy lifestyle post for you today 🙂 Living out a healthy lifestyle is so much more than working out! It’s a LIFESTYLE, so it’s being as healthy as you can throughout all aspects of your life. Staying physically fit, eating foods that our bodies love, keeping ourselves mentally healthy, glorifying our relationships, feeding ourselves spiritually. Being home these lat 6 weeks, I have realized how keeping my house in SOME WHAT of an order is really important for me. I do get anxiety when things get too messy. Don’t get me wrong, I am fully aware that sometimes the dishes will wait and clothes will sit...

The Healthiest Year Yet!

Happy Sunday to YOU! I know I have been in my own little world over here just loving on my newborn BUT that isn’t going to change anytime soon, so I thought I should probably check in on My Goodness Blog and talk about this NEW YEAR with you all! I have missed my regular health focused posts and although my blog is turning into more of a lifestyle blog, I will still keep it health and fitness focused 🙂 So who has some sort of fitness goal for 2017?! Workout more, stop eating like crap, stop drinking pop…. any of those sound familiar to anyone? A new year is...

JoMarie’s Birth Story

One month. It has been one month since we brought the most beautiful little human into this world and I still can’t believe it! This last month has been incredibly exciting, emotional, exhausting, and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Life has an entire new meaning for us and this little girl has fulfilled us with overwhelming happiness. JoMarie is sitting in her rock n play next to me right now and I could just look at her for hours, and I have 🙂 I appreciate your patience and understanding with MyGoodness blog as I have most definitely been taking this time, to enjoy this special time that I will never get...

Welcome JoMarie!

Good Morning! On December 4th at 9:36pm our world took the best possible turn we could imagine as Nick and I welcomed our daughter, JoMarie Evelyn Elioff, into the world! I have thought about what to say in this post for the last few days and finally decided words just cannot describe the love and happiness this little sweet girl has put in our hearts! The last almost three weeks have been spent staring at JoMarie’s little face, learning new things about her each day, playing with her dark dark hair and rubbing her oh so kissable, chubby cheeks. My contractions started around 9:30 the morning of 12/4, which happened...

Well hello!! Is your week off to a good start? I hope so 🙂 Today on My Goodness I have put together a little health post for you on ways we can live well and healthy throughout our busy life. Enjoy 🙂 Wouldn’t it be nice to have the lifestyle where you could get up and have healthy meals prepared for you each day, meet with a personal trainer, and have ample and uninterrupted time to workout each day? Well for those of you who may be blessed with that lifestyle, I’m jealous and you rock 🙂 But for those of us who are running from place to place, working full time,...

Third Trimester:: 39 Week Update

Good Morning!! I hope you all have had a great weekend with your loved ones and a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a really nice weekend and a great Thanksgiving with family! We have a lot to be thankful for this year and with being SO excited for our little one to arrive, Nick and I did a little something fun for the two of us, we text each other each day this last week, something we were thankful for with each other. It was simple things like “I’m thankful you got up with the dogs last night” or “I’m thankful you take the garbage out every single week” or much...
