Holidays Can Be Hard

Holidays Can Be Hard

The Holidays can be hard for people like me. With anxiety, exhaustion and more. But this year, I’m getting ahead of it. Here’s how:

Every year around the holidays I get a little strange. I’m always full-on for the entire month, having fun, doing all the parties, all the fun. 

It’s also the busiest time for us in business.

So, picture it: all the holiday busy, all the work busy, all the family busy, and all the while I’m trying to stay on top of my health journey. All of this is done with all my energy.

Then after Christmas I crash. Hard.

My Struggle with Post Partum Anxiety

My Struggle with Post Partum Anxiety

love everything about being a new mom. From the baby snuggles to breastfeeding to all the cute clothes. There’s so much newness and joy to embrace. And even with all that love and happiness, I still struggle. 

I have a family history of anxiety and depression, and though I don’t often talk about it, I thought it was important to share my experience with postpartum anxiety since today is World Mental Health Day.

On the Wagon, and Staying On it

How I’m Getting Healthy Again

I tend to give up easily.  I am really good, watching what I eat, working out and then something happens and I give up.  Or worse, I lose weight and the first thing I do is binge. Basically reversing my hard work. Not anymore!! Here’s how I’m recommitting to workouts and using weight watchers to get back on track.

Pregnancy and Body Image

Pregnancy and Body Image

It seems a bit taboo to complain or talk about weight gain during pregnancy since it is something that is supposed to happen. BUT it’s also incredibly hard to suddenly switch your mindset from focusing on weight loss and fitness to accepting weight gain. When I typically gain weight I feel uncomfortable in my skin, in my clothes and don’t like how I look. The same is true for the majority of the time I’m pregnant.

Please Stop Complimenting my Daughter’s Size

How I’m struggling to get my kids to eat healthy,  boost their self confidence and deal with some self image issues.
