Why I run

I've posted about this before and I'm crazy on Instagram about running- mainly because I'm proud. Some people ask me why I run. I even have people ask me if I'm crazy. I have people (ones who know me well) tell me that I need to start slowing down. What for? Why do people feel… Continue reading Why I run

Kripalu

If you've been following me, you know I was so nervous to leave my family for the first time in 4 years. I wasn't even leaving for 1 night, but 2! The day I left was extremely hectic- a student destroyed my classroom right when I had to leave to bring Juliana to her preschool… Continue reading Kripalu

I haven’t been out in 4 years

Ok ok, I've gone out, but I haven't been overnight anywhere, haven't gone on a vacation- which is totally expected with 2 toddlers, and really haven't gone anywhere for more than 4-5 hours? I'm tired. I need to fill my bucket a little more than once a month, if that. And I don't mean leave… Continue reading I haven’t been out in 4 years

Seasons of Life

Life can be so crazy sometimes. I mean CRAZY- kids, jobs, money, balance, trying to be healthy, marriage, etc. How does anyone stay sane? I really would like to know how anyone stays sane these days. How does anyone not live paycheck to paycheck? People who don't have degrees make millions of dollars and people… Continue reading Seasons of Life

Diets work…until they don’t

As most of you know, I am very passionate about fitness and nutrition. Our bodies are machines and if we don't give them the right fuel, we eventually burn out and get sick. Never have I ever believed something to be so true. For years, I just ate and ate and ate and could care… Continue reading Diets work…until they don’t

I see you mama

I see you. I see you working all the time... being a mama, a teacher, a full time worker, a wife, a communicator, a good friend. I see you trying to be the best. I see you waking up early to immediate anxiety of having to get the kids up and ready for school/daycare. I… Continue reading I see you mama

An avocado a day keeps the doctor away

I went to my 5th doctor in the past few years- my first and favorite one moved practices, then I had a creepy man doctor who I immediately switched to another creepy one and then a woman I liked decided to leave because of an insurance war. Lastly, I had some lady who was convinced… Continue reading An avocado a day keeps the doctor away

The Summer of Me

This was the best summer and I feel a little guilty saying this because a lot of the summer I spent with me, myself and I. My kids went to daycare full time because we still pay, I worked summer school for a month, and the rest of my time I spent at the pool… Continue reading The Summer of Me

Friday night vent sesh

Cue the poor me...just for this post. I gotta vent it out. It's 9pm on Friday night and both kids are awake. My kids are naturally wired and most people will say it's my fault because I ran and did Zumba throughout both my pregnancies. I had to put Hudson in his crib and let… Continue reading Friday night vent sesh
