When I found out I was pregnant, my biggest fear and most Googled subject was about food. I prayed and pep talked my son in utero about not being a picky eater. I kept a pretty balanced diet while pregnant, too, with my most specific cravings being apples, broccoli, and Honey Nut Cheerios (shout out to my husband for always coming home with what I wanted). 
We’ve all heard and used the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” We have all probably joked about the lack of said village, too. The thing is, though, that even if we do not live in...

Here are the step counts of some of my typical 'mom' activities. I hope you can reap the benefits!
Our daily routine has helped us maintain a sense of structure. I’m teaching my kiddos about responsibility and the importance of a daily routine, but also about flexibility and the element of surprise. As long as we’re getting our daily chores done (make the beds, clean up, brush our teeth), there’s always room for spontaneity and fun!
How do you show up? I'm talking about your posture. Take a look. Stand in front of the mirror. What do you see?   I remember seeing my reflection in a window when my youngest was an infant. Rounded shoulders. Head forward. Is...
There is an overwhelming pressure to snap back after pregnancy. A pregnant body gets so much praise for its beauty and wonder. But once the baby is delivered and we still look pregnant days and weeks after delivery, the...
I've grown tired of the expectation that any time people make plans to catch up after a long while or relax and spend some time together, all we seem to be able to come up with is “meeting up...
How many times have you felt that your doctors don't listen and instead blame every health issue on your weight? How many times have you skipped an appointment because you were too afraid of being judged for your weight?...
