Motherhood can make you feel stronger than you’ve ever felt before.
It’s true! Not only have you grown a little human being inside of you, you then gave birth, you’ve raised this little being with your whole heart, body and mind – and it takes strength to do so!
Yet no matter how strong we may feel, sometimes our physical strength just doesn’t match up. At least, that’s how I feel when it comes to my abdomen muscles and pelvic floor. View Post
Becoming a vegan is not as hard as you think it might be, but going vegan as a family can be a bit tricky! I’ve quickly discovered that going vegan is easy when you make an abundance of delicious vegan meals – crowding out whatever meat and dairy may have been in your diet before with an abundance of veggies, whole grains, and plant-based proteins.
Yes, going vegan can be easy. But throw in an 11 year old that won’t eat onions or peppers, and a 5 year old whose dream diet consists of pizza and cheeseburgers, and suddenly going vegan as a family becomes a little more difficult. Here are some tips and tricks I’ve learned this past week on how to go vegan as a family without losing your mind!
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 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
Summer is finally here – the skies are blue, the sun is shining, and it is hot out there. I am loving it! I love having our patio doors wide open, the kids are able to play outside all day long, and we can enjoy a meal and a drink outside on the deck. It’s heaven. I should be living in Hawaii or Malibu.
With the lovely weather I’ve been inspired to move more – yes, I get super sweaty and gross. The definition of a hot mess. Who cares? I wish I was inspired to work out more when it was winter, but it’s the sunshine that makes me want to move it and lose it! The weight, that is. Bad pun?
Over the last few years I’ve been seen the pictures and glanced in full length mirrors at clothing stores, and I’ve been watching myself slip away. I don’t recognize myself anymore. When I weigh myself I get stunned. How did I get here? How did I allow this to happen? View Post
