Workout week 2 |Fitness journey | 


Hello readers! 

I hope you all had a great week and wonderful weekend, I know I did. 

I spent my time cleaning up our yard and trying to keep myself busy and on the go. Last week I had very minimal back pain (if any at all) so I have been doing way more than I was a few weeks ago. Luckily I have amazing friends who have made and sent me pain relief mixures of essential oils that I use daily to help and control pain. I have become so interested and such a firm believer in essential oils and their benefits! Sometime soon I will probably be a crazy oil lady haha. 

Anyways, I just ended my second week of working out and I have never felt better in my life! I am doing good of keeping and maintaining my weight which has always been a struggle along with powering through workouts 4-5 days a week! Body pain is gone, headaches are gone and I am not having anxiety at all so I honestly feel like a new woman! 

I am seeing and beginning to feel physical changes in my body and I could not be more excited! I am fitting into jeans very well and filling them out in places I never have! I have been making changes in what I eat as well and that has helped so much. I am trying to continue my fitness journey without completely cutting out foods because I am not exactly trying to lose weight but tons and build muscle. 

I use  BPI Sports Best Aminos with ice cold water  as pre- workout (muscle recovery) and Muscle Milk (32g Protein) with 8oz of Milk after each workout. I get both of these products at our local Walmart and so far I really like them! 

Operation no more mom bod is still in action and coming in HOT!!!! Stay tuned for my next fitness update and monthly progression pictures! 

Thank you for reading and I hope this is helpful to some of you to get the motivation to begin your own fitness journey! Have a great week and I will be back soon!

My first week of Workout/ Training. 


-Happy Monday- 

A week ago I took the plung and decided that NOW is the time to begin my fitness journey and I am so happy that I did. 

I have always had a fear of workouts/ gyms and being judged because lets face it, when you are thin/small people belittle your fitness goals. At the same time I kind of just got to a point where I thought you know what f**k it either way people are gonna hate on it but at least I will be reaching my goals for ME! 

My weight is the highest (non pregnancy) and I seem to be maintaining it well these days. I am not jumping into a diet or completely changing my daily eating habits but I am taking baby steps into having a healthier lifestyle. 

Not only am I enjoying working out but my health has improved so much as well. My anxiety is hardly even noticeable, I am able to sleep with no sleep aid and my headaches and back pain has been reduced 95% along with the help of essential oils. 

I can not wait to take weekly/monthly progress photos and see changes in my body and feel better about my physical appearance. My advice to you if you have been procrastinating working out, just DO IT! Take that leap and do it for you! 

I will Blog meal prep ideas and Weekly Fitness updates, look forward to that! Also I have a lot of new Photography to share with you all so those posts will be coming soon!

Life update and Newest Photography| The Indie Chic Blog 

– Hello everyone- 

It has been a hot minute since I have been back and I thought, why not fill you all in on what I have been up to!?!  

Since stopping all of my medications and trying more natural remedies for my  anxiety and pain I have been feeling 100x better! I am clear headed, at a healthy weight, happy and I recently picked up my Nikon DSLR camera again! 

With all of the beauty of Spring blossoming  I recently booked a few sessions as well as just taking photos of what catches my eye and well…. although I am a bit rusty and I am still learning I was so please with the outcome of them all. I love the idea of being a non-traditional photographer and stepping out of the lines and going the extra mile that most do not even think of. Now, my photography is not for everyone and as I learned the hard way, not everyone will be supportive I will not give up on my dream of showing my clients their own REAL beauty. 

I think one thing that sets me apart from all of the others is that I do NOT photoshop. I use very simple ways of editing my photos to show the real beauty of each individual session. The whole reason of my Photography name “Unlikely Photography” is because Unlike most other photographers I refuse to edit out what makes us beautiful as individuals and HUMAN! I do not take photos for perfection. I want to show the world as beautiful as I see it with a dash of creativity. 


I stepped out of my comfort zone completely and I am trying new ideas/ photoshoots and editing and for a beginner I don’t think they turned out too bad! I know that my recent clients have been very pleased with their photos. 

I am thankful that I never lost sight of what I really want and what I deserve. I am beyond blessed to be able to stay home with my children and have a job that I can respect myself for. Dreams do not come true if you do not work for it. 

Please feel free to like, comment and share if you like my post as well as following my Blog. I am beyond thankful to all of my followers and viewers who have stuck around through my roller coaster life! 

Goodnight.

IndieChic Outfit inspiration | OOTD | TheIndieChicBlog |

The Indie Chic Blog 

– Hello readers – 

My posts have been very random lately so I figured I would switch it up and give you all some Indie fashion inspiration! 

As the weather is changing here in Texas I felt decent enough (medication problems) to put together is super cute outfit to share with you all. 

• Keep in mind every item of clothing including the boots was Thrifted so I do not know Retail prices/ Stores/ Brands  • After all this is only to inspire, right? 


First things first be sure to follow my blog TheIndieChicBlog and my Instagram xxkaseygruenewaldxx and let me know you are a WordPress user! Now let’s get into the outfit! 


These are my all time favorite boots in the world and I scored them at our local Goodwill BRAND new for $4.99. They are very cute with any outfit from jeans- dresses and they always put that “Indie/ Boho style” touch. 


I am the worst with finding clothing online I’m so sorry you guys but I put all the info I could! 


I styled this look with leggings, winter socks and a cross body purse. 


Be sure and let me know what you think of this outfit in the comment section and thank you so much for stopping by. I will be back soon.
