Whole 30, Day 0!
So after watching the scale slowly creep UP in the 8 months since Jo was born, I've finally decided enough is enough.
I've started getting more exercise, averaging 4 days per week -- really, not bad for a full-time working mom!
Now it'... Read more
Returning, maybe? (Also, a few baby pics!)

Wow, I really can't handle the food tracker
I've been using the food tracker for the past four days, because my midwife wants me to keep a food diary.
I'm definitely DONE using the food tracker.
I stopped counting calories when I did my Whole 30 last fall, and I'm very quickly r... Read more
The excuses stop here
For a few weeks, my body craved milk and toast like oxygen.
Then, I started having morning sickness that was never really sickness, just a feeling like I was hungover.
So for the first several weeks of my pregnancy, I just ate what tas... Read more
I'm bloated, having mood swings, and gaining weight -- WOOHOO!
Hello, Sparkies! It's been a very long time since I updated -- sorry. It's just been a really crazy start to the "New" Year, and I just haven't had the energy to post as much as I'd like.

Life is good
I have been so crazy busy lately, but I don't mind. The business is wonderful!
Work is going SO WELL. My after school program wrapped up for the semester, and I don't think my girls could have made me any prouder. We all moved from the 10th... Read more
Good lord, how am I supposed to be able to function at ALL when I'm by myself and wondering if I'm pregnant? For the first time ever in my life, I was able to FEEL IT when I ovulated! And by happy coincidence, there was a lot of lovemaking going... Read more

I know it's partially the PMS, but I'm just so full to the brim with the emotion that I just have to let it out in writing. I need to hear from other women right now.
As you all know, I've had a huge year. It began with a loss, which was im... Read more
Thanks for Whole30
It's Thanksgiving morning. In two hours, my besties will be here and we will begin a whirlwind of dicing, roasting, steaming, stirring, straining, baking, mashing, creaming, and, of course, eating! It's a day for feasting, and the perfect day to... Read more
Serious Challenge, Serious Changes!
The past four days have been, without a doubt, the most challenging days I've faced in terms of eating healthy since I joined SparkPeople. The Whole30 was never going to be easy to begin with, but coupling it with a last-minute business trip to... Read more
