My Dirty Laundry

I am really good at talking about what I am good at. My last post, Let Me Intimidate You, focused on child nutrition. Something I am very passionate about. I can go on for hours talking about kids’ nutrition. It is easy for me. I am good at nutrition and it is a good habit….

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!…

On staying fit and being pregnant

As soon as people realize you are pregnant, the questions begin to fly. There is no way around the oncoming inquires from family, friends, and strangers! “What is the gender?”, ‘Due Date?’, ‘are you working out?’, ‘are you sick?’, and on and on and on! So here is the low down on my pregnancy so…

Welp, I gained 3 pounds.

Well, I have to say, my May goals are getting crushed. My motivation has been exceptional. I have been getting out for walks on the road, great home workouts and client workouts, and I have been expanding my knowledge through reading. Except for the fact that I have gained almost 3 pounds, my cravings are…

Motivated in May

Re-Motivating

It has been a day or two (or week) since I have posted and to be honest I have been struggling with motivation to write. Or rather topics to write about. I did my ‘healthy’ family series and then kind of got a little lost. It is very easy for me to write about the…

Spring into Fresh Food

“Real food grows, rots dies. Real food doesn’t need an ingredient label. Real food doesn’t make claims” -Michael Pollan This time of year I am ready for nothing more than swimsuits, garden veggies, and farm stand fruit. WE have had a few very nice ‘teaser’ days here which make the wait for consistent gardening weather…

Steps to Healthy Family #4: Let Grandma Come to Town

This past week, my mom came to visit. We took a trip to Dallas for the American Rodeo and spent the week at our house riding the horses, coloring, playing stickers, and doing anything else our daughter insisted of Grandma. She has Grandma wrapped around her finger. It didn’t take but two minutes of my…

Steps to a Healthier Family #3

This one is simple: Never Give up. There are going to be days when dinner is not a balanced meal, when breakfast is leftover dinner, and when coffee is the only thing getting you through it. Don’t sweat it. I find that I have a few things that always get done (healthy snacks, water bottles,…
