Cool Ranch Shredded Chicken Lettuce Wraps (Crockpot)

Crockpot meals?!? YASSSS please! Who doesn’t love easy meals for dinner, that are healthy and take very little effort to put together. I have to admit to you guys (I have a post all about this coming up) what my vision of maternity leave was and what it has actually been are two completely different things. It has been exactly what it needs to be!! Silly me had this vision of being able to prep dinner meals each day and I learned very quickly that JoMarie had other plans for our days and of course she comes first! Nick and I did a full day of preparing freezer meals before...

Are You Being Help Back? How You Can Change Your Lifestyle For The Better

Helloooo! I hope you are all having a great week! It is crazy to think that January is coming to an end, how is everyone doing on those 2017 goals? Here is a little post to help you carry on with those goals. January seems to be the month where we all like to make some changes. Those changes might have to do with losing weight, getting our finances in order or finally going for that promotion at work. But what some of us would really like is to change our lifestyle in general. This tends to cover the food we eat, the way we feel both physically and mentally, and habits...

Post-Baby Fitness

Good evening!! Late night post for you 🙂 I got little miss to sleep, Nick is in bed, and I brewed a cup of coffee for a late night of school work. Yep, school work. So here I sit, blogging and avoiding my school work 😉 I have recently started to workout again since giving birth and thought I would do a little post on that. Currently I am doing the Kayla Itsines 12 week BBG challenge (when I have time to do it) and I’m also getting back into my lifting program. It feels great, but I have learned some things along the way as well. Be nice to...

The Truth Behind Diet Trends

Goooood Morning and Happy Sunday!! I hope you all had a great weekend and are starting your Sunday off doing something that makes you happy. Aren’t Sunday’s the best?! Here is a little health post for you on some diet trends that are popular right now, and my take on them. Enjoy 🙂 **knowledge is power** Most things in our world follow a pattern of trends. The most obvious are fashion, health trends, technology and of course, diet trends. There are different claims and pitches for almost every diet on the planet. Some are backed up by science, while others are merely bandwagons that have gathered a bit of steam. Some...

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...

Weekly Goodness:: Take 50

Happy Friday to YOU!!! It has been a little bit since I have done a Weekly Goodness post, Friday posts have been dedicated to other stuff lately, but Weekly Goodness is back 🙂 at least for this week! Who else is so happy it’s FRIDAY?!? Let’s have a good Friday and let the weekend begin.  We do not have much planned and that is exactly what I am excited about. Those low key weekends are so nice sometimes! Let’s start with some of this week’s Goodness. I want to share some IdealFit goodness with you all today! They are coming out with new flavors like it’s their job 😉 Caramel Mocha...
