Name Changes and Life Updates

The past two years have passed in a blink.


I left an extremely abusive relationship and established myself.

Without even looking, I found prince charming.

He is everything, and more.

*Cue wedding bells*

I wasn’t kidding when I said he was everything, he even wrote my daughter her own vow at the wedding (swoon).

We (and by we I mean “I” because nothing peeves me more than a man who says “we’re pregnant’…oh are WE?) got pregnant.


However, 5 months in to the pregnancy I started having some serious complications.

I ended up being admitted to the hospital for three weeks of pampering. And, on June 27th (12 weeks early) we met our beautiful son.

Our tough fighter spent 62 long days in the NICU, but now here we are.

Like I said, the past few years have gone by in a blink and time is not slowing down, but I am so excited to be back here to share as always health and wellness tips, money saving tips (because as a young mother of two frugality is key), product reviews (check back here later for “The Pits and The Peaches”), and all things good, bad, and Goldstone.


Till next time!


Day 35

Every day I am one step closer to reaching my goals. With every explosive push up, every pistol squat, every reverse crunch, I can feel myself running out of weakness; and getting stronger. It’s a slow and intense process, but I won’t give up! Giving up won’t build my muscles faster. Giving up just puts me right back at square one.

I’ve tackled 35 of the most challenging workouts (many with a two year old on my back), but they have also been the most rewarding.

I currently use Biocharge and Catalyst 30 minutes before each work out. Biocharge is a caffeine free source of energy that is designed to improve muscle performance and decrease recovery time. While Catalyst is a branch of amino acids and L-glutamine which protects your muscles and burns fat during a work out.
How do I kick the post work out owies? Night time recovery!  I swear these are like magic! The first day I did CU24 was my first time working out in 3 years, my pecs were SCREAMING after that first workout but the next morning I could move with ease. I’m telling you, magic.


A 24 minute work out takes up 1.6% of your day. No excuses.
