I’m THAT Mom and I don’t feel guilty about it

I’m the mom who works out. And I make it a priority. And no, I don’t feel guilty about it. As Moms, there is so much “mom guilt” out there and it can really tear you down. Really, really bring you down. A lot of it we put on ourselves and a lot of it is pushed on us by others. I know many moms are continuously trying to fight off this guilt (me included). A lot of what this…

6 Reasons I am Thankful for Running

Yesterday was National Running Day and unfortunately I couldn’t get a run in but I made up for it this morning on my treadmill. There are so many of these types of days out there and they are a little bit silly but the Running Day I can definitely jump on the bandwagon for. Running has been a huge part of my life for over 10 years now. It all started as a way for me to relieve some stress…

Running Slump

So I think I’m in a running slump or funk or whatever you want to call it. Lately when I go out for a run, it’s just not the same. I’m not sure if it’s because I don’t have a race immediately in the future, I’m too tired, or I’m just not into it but it’s just off. And it’s starting to make me a little sad! I feel a lot slower and running seems harder than it should some…

Celebrity Pregnancies vs Reality

Losing the baby weight.  It’s something that has been on my mind since I got pregnant – and isn’t that crazy???  I just had this huge, wonderful, amazing life change and I’m already thinking about how I’m going to lose the baby weight.  Wait a second… this isn’t right! What prompts this reaction in so many women these days?  Is it that we truly miss our bodies we once had before pregnancy?  Maybe.  Is it pressure from family or friends? …

Why being skinny won’t (and shouldn’t) make you happy

  (A moment of happiness in Hawaii!) Have you ever heard that money can’t buy you happiness?  Of course you have.  That’s the same way I feel about being skinny.  It won’t buy you happiness. This might seem like I’m a hypocrite saying this considering I strongly promote a healthy and active lifestyle but I promise I’m not.  The reason I promote this lifestyle is NOT about being skinny.  It’s about being healthy.  It’s about preventing diseases like cancer and…
