This year is one for the books.

It’s been a day or two (or twenty) since I have had to chance to write! I began school to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and it seems that every spare minute I have is going to reading, watching class, or doing assignments. My nose has been stuffed in books for a month and there…

There Is No Such Thing As Ready

“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” Now is the only time…

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…

Healthy Fast Food

Here I am, 39 weeks pregnant, sitting in my husbands recliner at 6 am eating banana bread, scrolling Facebook, and putting the finishing touches on my birth plan (that I have finished 10x. and really can you ‘plan’ these things?!). Trying to begin my day with something productive but getting caught in this easy chair….

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…

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…

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…

Steps to a Healthier Family #2

Last week we left off with one full week of small changes for you and your family. As the weeks progress, keep those changes going! Here is a small recap: Each day swap one processed food for an unprocessed option. Get in at least one Tabata set each day. Get the entire family outside and…

Steps To a Healthier Family

Something I get asked weekly is, ‘where do I begin in making changes to have a healthier family, more balanced nutrition, and better workout schedule’. So I have decided to do a series of post of just that! I want others families to be able to have the balanced nutrition and exercise they deserve without…

I am Learning

It has been awhile since I have talked about my goals as far as my body goes. I have always had a nice figure but we all want to change something. Since having a baby I have been trying to get back ‘in shape’. I am in shape. I am happy with my exact shape….

Choices

“Our choices make us”. Those words keep fumbling around in my head this morning. I am making choices today and even though it is the same situation I have been in for years, they are still just as hard to make. The choice was easy before I had a husband and daughter. Go! But now,…

My Church 

You would think that after a long time in the mountains we would be at home but instead we are sitting by the lake. Adventuring. These are the kind of things that keep me going.  On a beautiful Sunday morning so many people are off the the church house. I’ve never really wrote about faith…
