Kids have so much access to digital entertainment and media these days that they’re getting less and less time outdoors. When my kids spend time outside playing and having fun, they are so much happier than being cooped up inside all day – and that makes me happy!
Outside physical activity does such a wonder for kids both mentally and physically, and it helps get their energy out in fun and positive ways. We’re always motivating our kids to get outside, play in the woods, get on their bikes, skateboards, scooters, and anything else that moves, and have fun being outdoors in nature. View Post
Do you remember when the Fitbit first came out years ago? Women everywhere were getting them for Christmas, for birthdays, or just because it was the coolest, newest thing – and everyone was obsessed with it. I would see people in the grocery store wearing their FitBits, my Facebook feed regularly included a Fitbit meme, and people bragged about their steps on IG.
I rolled my eyes at all of it. View Post
Today is Day Two to a Healthier Me!
I’m still feeling super motivated and excited about the changing our lifestyles and heading on a healthier path. Which is great but being the eternal realist I know that the feeling will probably dissipate over the next few weeks and I have to be prepared for that!
And I’m still getting the hang of trying to cook vegan, quickly, easily, and without thinking. Today I worked in the Village, out of the house. I started my day off with water and lemon, and then a green smoothie (spinach, goji berries, mango, flax meal, protein powder, almond milk), which held me over for a while. I got a matcha latte (made with soy milk) and a vegan energy ball at a cafe, where I worked for a while. View Post
Today is Day One to a healthier me.
I’ve embarked on a 90 days journey for my health. Why? What do I hope to achieve at the end of these 90 days? I want to lose weight, of course but that’s not all. I want to feel stronger in my body, I want to keep up with my kids, and I want to be happy with myself. I want to feel healthy.
And I’ve got to start somewhere.
So today is the first of my 90 days to health, and I want to share with you how I’m doing this. View Post
For years and years I’ve moaned on about how I need to lose some weight. That the baby weight is sticking around. Trying different diets and adding things to my diet and hoping for some type of long term result but never seeing any real change. It’s getting frustrating.
I’ve made some small changes in these past few months. I’ve attempted to put myself first instead of always last in the family, I’ve added smoothies for breakfast and I start my day off with lemon water. I’ve been more aware of what I’ve been eating, but then I go for days eating heavy meals and lots of alcohol. I’ll lose 5 pounds and gain 10 back. View Post
So in a recent poll, 95% of moms say that they had more time for themselves before motherhood. Well, duh! I mean, I feel the 5% that think they had the same or more time for themselves now were drunk when the poll was taken. And 58% of moms admit to sneaking in TV “me-time” while juggling a busy schedule, even hiding it from their kids for a moment of peace.
My hand is up! I take part in a #MomSneak at least once a week. Is your hand up, too? View Post
