Staying fit, thin, and strong isn’t a pipe dream, it’s a lifestyle.

A website for everyone trying to do it all. I share my story to let you know you are not alone. Even if your plate is full, together we'll find ways to live our crazy lives, somehow stay sane, and even put together a healthy meal at dinner time (most nights).

Our Full Plate on Instagram

 What do you do when you go food shopping just to pick up a few things and you see #Organic Hormone Free chicken 50% off?! You go home and wrap bacon around it and bake it in the oven at 425 degrees for 35 minutes duh. I feel like I won the lottery. #bargainshopper #sale #healthyfoodisnotalawysexpensive #healthyonabudget #baconmakeseverythingtastebetter #paleo #fitfluential #ourfullplate

 Finally made it back home to TX with our crazy boys. What a great trip Ben and I had celebrating our anniversary. I initially felt guilty for taking a big trip like this without the boys, but not only are we well rested but more importantly we were able to regroup and had time to prioritize what is important in life. Talk about a second chance. So grateful for this opportunity and great grandparents who took care of the kids back home. Hopefully it won't be another 10 more years till we see those teal waters again. #blessed #2ndhoneymoon #antigua #renew #family #ourfullplate

 Annnnnd we are off. I apologize in advance for all the tropical backdrops and lovey dovey pictures I am going to post this week but you only celebrate 11 years of marriage (sans kids) once, which @crossweb reminds me we had 10 good years. #hesajokester #2ndhoneymoon #antigua #blessed #lovehim #heputsupwithme #love #ourfullplate
 For those of you who know me, you know I do not have a green thumb. However, my hubby is trying to dabble in gardening and I am starting to like it. Here is our first "offspring." This okra is so cute. I don't want to eat it. Now do I just go roast it up all by itself?!? #gardening #learning #greenthumb #sustainabilty #paleo #homemadeorganic #okra #fitfluential #ourfullplate
