Welcome to Honey We're Healthy!

Thank you for visiting Honey We're Healthy!

I'm Megan, and we might already be friends from my  home decor and organization blog, Honey We're Home.  If we haven't met yet, I'm glad you're here!  I'm a 37 year-old mom to an adorable 2 1/2 year old son, James.  He's the love of my life, but I will admit, pregnancy was not so hot for me- on my 5'1 frame, I gained over 50 pounds.  To read about how I lost the weight and got back into shape, go HERE.  

As I approach my 40s and raise my young son, being active and healthy has become more important than ever.  I'm not a nutritionist or personal trainer, just a regular working woman who wants to raise a fit family and look and feel the best I can.  I want a lean figure and shapely muscles.  Many of you have the same goals.  I know that my body runs better when I nourish it with natural, unprocessed, low sugar foods and that I feel strong and energized when I workout and lift weights.

My approach to living healthy has been shaped by lots of reading and research from people like: Dr. Oz; Fitness Models/Writers Jamie Eason, Monica Brant, and Tosca Reno; Chef Ellie Kreiger; Personal Trainers Bob Greene and Jillian Michaels; and Food Writer Michael Pollan.  I also read magazines like Oxygen and Whole Living.  I'll digest the information and bring it to you here.


My hope is that Honey We're Healthy will be a place of encouragement, support, and motivation to make our journeys toward health and fitness more doable and fun.  I plan to share meals- healthy ones but also yummy desserts for once in a while.  I admit to having a major sweet tooth and wouldn't dream of eliminating chocolate from my diet.  I'll also post fitness tips and my workout routine, as well as all things related to living a healthful lifestyle.  

I hope you enjoy visiting and come back often.  You can follow Honey We're Healthy HERE or subscribe HERE.  


I'll leave you with very wise words from my loving Grandma, who always signs her handwritten letters to me with the sweetest sentiment . . .

  7. Congrats on the new blog! I love the design and the name, too. With two picky kids, it's hard to always make healthy food for my family and it's also hard to find the time to work out, so I'm looking forward to the helpful advice. Well, maybe I'd have more time to exercise if I stopped reading so many design blogs, hehe : )

  11. Perfect timing for me to have stumbled upon your blog. So excited to hear what you have to say. I'm also a busy working mom of a 2 1/2 year old boy... and finding that I'm sliding into convenience shopping (goldfish crackers) for snacks for him, and skipping meals for myself until dinnertime. And, sadly, some days we don't make it outside for exercise. The result is a sluggish mama who is making poor food choices late in the day when I'm STARVING. I recently decided that the whole family deserves better, and resolved to start providing healthy, whole, homemade foods for us. Now, to find the time for shopping and recipe research!

  12. Hi Megan!

    I have been following Honey We're Home for awhile now and am excited about your new venture. Like you, I gained about 50 lbs during pregnancy (my daughter is almost 7 months) and am working to get it off. I am committed to creating a healthy lifestyle for my family and look forward to reading!

  15. So excited for the new blog, I already love your first blog and your weight loss story is inspiring for me a mom of two. I have been struggling to drop these 17lbs and be able to reach my goal. I have ups and downs I love to work out but I can also lose my motivation when I do not see any results. I am hoping that your blog will help me get that motivation back and be able to have the body that I dream of, I wants abs, I want to have definition in my arms and feel good about myself. Thank You for this blog
