A few weeks ago, around 9pm, I yelled so loud I woke the children, my husband, and scared our dog into a tailspin. My husband frantically ran downstairs to make sure I was alright. My kids ran after him asking, “why are you laughing? Or are you crying? What’s wrong mommy?” Continue reading
I have known this is coming. I have been excited out of my mind that this is coming. Drinking champagne everyday celebrating that this is coming. Yet, I’m still shaking with excitement to actually see it!
I hate throwing food away. I hate $200 grocery bills. I definitely hate the “what are we going to have for dinner” conversation (so much that I posted about it here).
I hate making bad food decisions. And I hate ordering out (It’s always more expensive than I think it should be, I’m never happy when they say, we’ll have that ready for you in 45 minutes, and I eat too much).
Lets be clear: Continue reading
Happy Monday. We had had a really great weekend. We enjoyed the PGA, explored local places, and played in the sunshine.
But if anyone knows where the “on” button is for kids’ listening ears, please let me know. I had a runner at the park and then a non-runner at the neighbors (i.e. I’m not coming home. I. want. to. stay. here.). I know, I know Continue reading
Last week, I wrote in general about how and why my diet has evolved. This week it’s a list of the things I don’t eat. When I sat down to write this, it was actually hard because they don’t feel like rules.
I did not wake up one morning and say, I’m not going to eat these thing. Instead it’s been a work in progress over the years to refine what I put in my body. Fun fact: while writing this I found this article which identifies almost everything on this list as an inflammation culprit – another great reason to cut these foods. Here it goes… Continue reading
Happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s already here again. We’re a week into August. School is sending the forms we need to fill-out for this year. Pre-seaon football starts this week…fall is waiting in the wings. As much I love fall, I’m not ready for summer to end! Continue reading
When I was 22 years old my stomach and I were fighting – a lot. I was just graduating college. I was too old for my pediatrician and yet to select and establish a relationship with a primary care doctor. So I went to a family member’s doctor for help. Continue reading
Good morning! Have you ever heard you’re not supposed to bring flowers as a hostess gift and if you simply must, then the least you can do is bring them in a vase? Continue reading
Some weeks, I really put off opening my computer to work on the blog. When I do get the nerve to open my computer, I might mess around Facebook or check the weather before I turn to writing. Posting day is no doubt the hardest (I’ve already checked Facebook 3 times and know that there’s a 15% chance of isolated showers around 5pm today).
At the heart of that procrastination is the most backwards reasoning in the world: If I don’t try, then I can’t fail.
But I know better. Continue reading
