Blog Recipes & last weeks Fire Bites

My niche with the blog is to manage our recipes section of the blog since I love to cook and love trying new recipes. I’ve been thinking for a {lonnngg} while about ways to make the recipes on here easy to find and accessible  since switching over to word press a couple months ago. Its not an easy task when you don’t really know what you’re doing and having to learn something that’s like greek! 😉  So we started by adding a recipe ‘carousel’ slideshow at the bottom of the page of our blog where you can scroll through the recipes we’ve posted starting with the most recent. I hope you’ll check it out!! Hopefully it will be a reminder of some great and simple healthy recipes like it has been for me as I’ve been going through them.

Stay tuned for more recipe and features to come. 😉

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
