• After going to Detroit for 24hrs last wknd, coming back to get the girls ready for school on Monday, Harper’s Taco Tuesday birthday celebration and shipping orders, mama tide (tired). Why must I always do the most?! I guess I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t 😆. I can’t wait till the weather cools off so I can rock my @supermomculture sweats full time 🙌🏾. Grab your hoodie & matching sweats cuz y’all know when the temp drops they’re going fly 💫🦸🏾‍♀️ Link in profile
  • Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes. Harper had a great action packed day. She still has a big birthday party next week with her school friends. I hope this doesn’t turn her into one of those Birthday people who celebrate their birthdays all month long 😂. If that’s you raise your hand 🙋🏾‍♀️ 😂.
  • Happy 4th Birthday Harper Mae! Doesn’t it seem like I just had her?! Harper is such a joy.  She’s the funniest little person I know.  She’ll be sweet but will go off in a second if you do something wrong.  She will even go off on someone for her big sister (and Peyton let’s her 😆). She loves music and drawing. We enjoy watching her grow daily. I’m excited to watch this little girl shine! She requested Taco Tuesday dinner tonight and her party is next weekend. So the party will continue.
  • My squad secured new bags! We’re rocking our new @zenkoleather pink croc bags. #Zenko makes quality leather bags for the whole family, including the man in your life. Don’t tell Peyton or Harper buy I may borrow their bags when I need something small 🤫. I’m always happy to share a fashion moment with my girls.  Details on our outfits on the blog.
  • I keep forgetting I have a beautiful bathroom to take mirror selfies in 😆. I wanted to share these #targetstyle sweats that match my neon green @supermomculture hoodie. Couple PSAs. Large neon hoodies are sold out. Denim hats and beanies (only a few left) are in stock. Also, check the size charts.  Hoodies and tees are unisex which means men sizes.  I’m wearing a medium in this pic. I normally wear a large in women’s for my 👀. All sales are final. If I do returns I would have to charge shipping both ways. I know y’all don’t want that. If you have questions please leave them below or dm. Thanks for all the love and support #supermomculture
  • Happy Birthday to my mom in heaven. Last year we celebrated her 80th birthday. I remember her saying she wanted to do it big because she never had a party and she said this might be the last one. I’m grateful that she was able to witness how much everyone loved and adored her.  This was the last time I physically saw her. We flew back the next day. I miss her so much!
  • It’s back to school time and this #TBT pic by @creativesoulphoto has been in heavy rotation. I think Peyton was like 3 or 4.  I wasn’t even pregnant with Harper. Still one of my faves. #creativesoulphoto #creativesoul

  • I went dressed as a zebra to hang with my friend and fave designer @suakokobetty at @29rooms. I’ve been on the move so much it was cool to just hang out. I’ve been going hard but I have a feeling something amazing is on the horizon. Until it happens you can find me cleaning my house and up to my eyeballs in laundry. 💫 Outfit was $10 at HM

Food Healthy Living Mama Solutions Product Review Simple Start Weight Loss Weight Watchers

Check-In & What I’m Eating on #SimpleStart

January 14, 2014
I’m almost two weeks in on the Simple Start program with Weight Watchers.  I’m happy to announce that I have already starting losing weight! *does the Running Man*.  This plan has been so easy to get to help me get on track.  The Simple Start app has some great meal ideas that I already love to eat.  With just a little tweaking, I haven’t missed out on much.  While I haven’t been a complete angel on the program (I’ve run amuck a few times), it don’t feel like I have to throw in the towel and start up again next year.  I just open up the app to read over the tips again and then take a stroll in my closet to look at all the clothes I can’t fit. 

I don’t like cooking and my days are crazy busy, so all my meals need to be extremely easy and quick to prepare.  The Simple Start app provided some great meal options that are easy to make.  With a little planning, I write down what I want to eat for the week from the app and head to the grocery store.  Below is a quick video check-in.

I love that the Simple Start meals are realistic.  I will never be able to kick bread or pasta to the curb.  I pretty much still eating foods that I love.  Even though there are no portion restrictions on the Simple Start plan, I still try to make sure I don’t eat too much but if I do, I don’t feel too bad about it.  My favorite meal is the cheeseburger and fries! 
What you need:
  • 3 oz of 95% lean ground beef (you can use ground turkey breast)
  • 1 light English muffin (I toast mine)
  • Spoon full or pinch of fat free cheddar cheese
  • Add lettuce, tomatoes, mustard, and fat free mayo
  • Crinkle cut fries (18 per serving)

I start by seasoning the ground beef.  Then patting out 3 oz burgers and placing in a baking pan. Because I like everything spicy, I add a little crushed pepper on the top.  I bake the burgers in the oven at 425 for about 30 mins (I like mine well done).  Once the burgers are in the over, I spread out plain crinkle cut fries on a baking sheet (instead of cutting potatoes like the app suggests).  I bake those for about 20 mins or until crispy.  Serving size of 18 fries only has 4 grams of fat!  Long as you bake them you are all good!  As soon as I take the burgers out of the oven I sprinkle on the shredded cheese so it can melt and look all delicious. I toast my English muffin and add mayo, mustard, lettuce and tomatoes.  I’m ready to grub!

Here is a glimpse of more meals that I have been eating. 
The Simple Start plan gives you two weeks to get going on your weight loss journey before heading over the full Weight Watchers plan.  To be honest, I don’t want to leave.  I may stay on the Simple Start for another week or two and add a few new meals.  Are you on a weight loss journey?  How is it going?

I was given a free one month subscription to Weight Watchers to try their new Simple Start plan and write about my experience.Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own.
