Do all these ‘Fit Moms’ have fit kids too?

I see an awful lot of ‘fit moms’ in my line of work. Myself being one of them.  I follow quite a few ‘fit moms’ on Instagram and here on WordPress. I see lots of pictures of moms working out, eating right, and doing their best to stay healthy. I am just curious, does this…

I need a really big bottle of wine.

Wow, I’m a hot mess. I had my second child. Turns out having two kids is like 10x the work and laundry and dirt and noise. To anyone who has a toddler and a newborn, I salute you! You deserve a big bottle of wine (or maybe something even stronger). I can honestly say that…

My Kid Is Missing Out

How many times have I heard the phrase, ‘Your kid is missing out’ in my two and half years as a parent? At least a billion, maybe more! I get it from friends, family, strangers, acquaintances, and especially from other moms. I hear it everyday! I am here to tell you that, yes, my kid…

30 weeks

These days are flying by. I have my 30 week check up this morning. 30 weeks! That makes it sound like I am having a baby very soon! Although I still have 10 weeks to go, I am anxiously awaiting the day. I am ready to meet the new little Mr. or Ms. In the…

Road Tripping With a Toddler

And we are off again….. Headed back up to the Mountains for one last summer trip before the farm gets too crazy again. This time my husband gets to come! I can’t wait to get my feet on the mountains and breath in the fresh air. I am now 6 months pregnant but I am…

My Growing Garden

‘If you look at it the right way, you can see that the entire world is a garden’ Growing a garden is something I have done ever since my beginning. My Mother and Grandmother always had gardens. My Great-grandfather had a huge garden and all my Grandmas neighbors did as well. It was just something…

Can I feed my 2 month old Ice Cream?!

I recently joined a ‘stay at home mom’ group on Facebook and wow have my eyes been opened! I guess I thought the rest of the world of moms had the same schedule, opinions, and household set up as me. I also like to believe that children are all playing outside, growing gardens, eating dirt,…

Gaining Wellness

If I could just go out and see that every person knows how great it feels to be healthy and eat real food, I would. If I could help every obese child take their lives back, I would. If I could talk to each person with asthma and tell them that steroids are not a…

SAHM Work…I need Ideas!

We are back in the flatland and back to life as usual. Anxiously awaiting our next visit up north (in July). My clients resume tonight and I cannot wait to get back into the gym! I am ready to a good weight lifting workout. I always feel so motivated after leaving the gym. It helps…

Let Me Intimidate You

I take a lot of crap over feeding my child good food. I get laughed at, questioned (constantly), and always told I am depriving my child. Depriving her of treats, sweets, cereals, etc. I mean come one, she is just a kid, let her have some fun! Right? Can we please just stop this already!…

Nourishing A Toddler

Feeding a toddler is by far one of the hardest parts of raising them. Each meal time ends in a big mess. Half the food on the floor, Some on their shirts, some on their seat, and maybe a little in there tummy. They like mac n’ cheese, cookies, crackers, and pretty much anything else…

Our food industry sucks 

90% is a big number. So why is our food industry not changing? Why are we still feeding/creating childhood obesity? Why are still battling fatigue and cancer? Diabetes and arthritis?  It amazes me that we are controlled by an industry that is slowly making us sick and no one bats an eye. We are customers…
