Alcohol, Bikinis & Catan


I totally owe you all a weekly update. Life is a wee bit crazy. I can’t wait to tell you all the details, but for now, let me just say that last week we were camping with friends. This week I’m toting my kids to and from science classes in between stalking my stat-counter (I was featured on Scary Mommy!)…

Stitch Fix Friday: Fix #1


Let me tell you a little about my shopping and fashion skills: if it can’t be purchased at Target, Ross or TJ Maxx, I’m probably never going to wear it. I just don’t have the patience to sift through the shops at the mall when I know most of the clothes won’t fit or flatter…

Fitbloggin’15 Recap


So first, let me tell you what Fitbloggin’ is. It’s a conference “for bloggers interested in fitness, wellness, good food and a healthy lifestyle.” (I took that right from their website. Obviously.) I’ve heard the name here and there, but I’ve never been to any kind of conference before – let alone a blogging one….

A Busy Blip

It’s been three weeks since I last posted a weekly update. I would say that was a fail, but I’ve been so busy living life! And living life is never a fail. Some great news: the last few posts I made reflected my down-in-the-dumps mood. I’m happy to say that my head is back up in the…

Stress-Free Holiday Eating


Tomorrow is the Fourth of July (Happy Birthday America!) and that means fireworks, friends, and most importantly, food. And let’s be honest, the menu won’t just be snow peas and grilled salmon. (If it is, please tag me on Instagram: @nicolehnit.) I know what I’m having at my cookout: burgers, hotdogs, broccoli salad (and it’s not the…

9 Things I Want My Daughter to Know About My Weight Loss


  My Dearest Girl, When you were four, I began my journey to healthy living. You probably don’t have many memories of me as a 246-pound woman, but you have lived through this long and winding process towards health, confidence, and unconditional acceptance of myself. You’re nine now – quickly approaching ten years old. I think often about the way I…

A Dose of Honesty


It’s been a rough week mentally. I’m about 78% certain that most of it is related to my period, but somehow that doesn’t seem to make it much easier. It’s frustrating because my mood can switch so suddenly and it makes me question everything about myself and what I’m doing with my life. I can…

Stuck in Suckville


I’ll apologize in advance for the boringness of this post. But I just don’t have a lot to say. (Shocking, right?) Total steps: 91, 108. Waaaaay down from last week, but still very respectable at 13k steps per day. I walked every day and racked up 32 miles. Nice. The biggest improvement is that I…
