My fitness journey…so far

I have always been trying to get to this elusive ‘fit’ situation. I have always been average as can be…usually around a size 8-10 with a smaller upper body and strong legs but less fit and larger lower body (as pear as pear can be). I have had phases where I worked out more or…

Things I keep wishing for

I love the nights, always have. When all the world sleeps and I can hear my thoughts, and most significantly, I cannot really do any activities that would wake others up. So I do quiet things like think and remember. I don’t tend to think of bad things or even bad scenarios. I just start…

How this mama relaxes

I am always thinking and worrying about something…all day all night. Sometimes I lay in bed, knowing the time is passing by, I should be sleeping, but darn it I am thinking about what chores, clothes, toys, meals, cleaning, etc. So I need to start winding down earlier in the evening and the past few…

Change of seasons is good reasons to change

See what I just did there…pats myself on the back! It didn’t even take me that long to write it today. I think I am just motivated to write something down before plopping down in bed to get a few hours. Things were tough, crazy, fun and just life changing this summer and I am…

Catching up with this mama

It has been too long. I feel like I was in a well, with a small bucket to bail myself out. There is this pesky little leaky pipe that is keeping me so busy. I hate saying the word ‘busy’ especially since I could not see any real outcome or as bosses used to tell…

My spirited little girl

It’s been an adventurous and challenging 7.5 months with baby Zoe but she has maintained her residence in the family by being super cute..kidding..but sometimes not really… 1. Always smiling with her tongue sticking out 2. Giving super awesome baby hugs..I don’t know that many babies give a bear type hug but this baby sure…

Here we go…2018 you be good now

And with all the promise a new year brings, 2018 I hope you go easy on me… This year I will call it ‘A life in balance’. So what am I trying to balance Health.. for this I am going to say mine and my husband’s because I feel we have been stronger together and…

Zleep: Zoe’s sleep

So I feel so sleep deprived I no longer have track of dates, days, or times of events or activities. This is currently a problem because we are trying to train Zoe to sleep better but I did not write down when we started or when she has been waking up. Hubs: Did you sleep…

‘Leaps’ in baby girl’s development

So apparently there is this well known app called the ‘The¬†Wonder Weeks‘ that features a calendar timeline of when a baby is going through developmental ‘leaps’. How did I not even think about this with my first child. Granted she was a fairly easy baby but none of the mamas I met had mentioned this….

Mommy brain is real y’all

I thought I was forgetful when I had Sophia and then started work…I was wrong..since I had Zoe I feel like my brain is taking a wistful vacation in a magical world where I had so many helpers. Long story short, I am so so forgetful and scatterbrain these days. Some examples you say? The…
