And Then One Day You Fit In Your Old Pants

I debated whether to write this blog post. It’s a weird moment. It’s a shout from the rooftops moment. But I also have reservations. I don’t want to come off braggy. And I certainly don’t want anyone to think I think “my shit don’t stink”. But at the same time, I am really proud of my commitment to my fitness and the strides I’ve made. I will also say, that most days, I don’t acknowledge how far I’ve come or see it. I look at …

A Merry, Merry Tradition

I love traditions. And in the craziness of schedules and the hustle and bustle I think it is more important than ever to make them. Having something wonderful to look back on as my three get older is so important to me. What are the little things? What are the things we did every year that will bring a smile to their faces when they are older? I think about these things and try to make sure there are moments they will hold on to. …

Are you scared?

Are you afraid? Do you think you aren’t strong enough? Are you afraid you won’t finish? Are you so sad that you are here and that you let yourself get here? These were all things that would go through my head. For two years I went to the gym on and off. (Hell, let’s be honest, for the last 15 years) I would get dedicated for a little bit, eat okay, and then stop going. I always felt good when I finished. But if I …

Hustle Mom Hustle’s First Thanksgiving!

This is our first Thanksgiving as Hustle Mom Hustle! We are 7 Momma’s on the run. We are raising humans at home and at work.

All of them are special people in my life and although our schedules are insane and we don’t get to spend much time together, we spend this time …

Carve out some time for You

Wow, the Mom Hustle has been real for all of us HMH mommas! You haven’t seen a post from us in a while! This time of the year is like our normal hustle on steroids.

Go to Starbucks, order your favorite drink and just be …

Happy Halloween

I grew up hating Halloween. I never really had a great costume. I think I was a baby every year. It was an easy costume that required very little money. Costumes were not something we spent money on when I was a kid. And so, all the kids would dress up and look so great and I was always a baby. It included pigtails and pajamas and both were easy and cheap. As I grew older, I remember the haunted houses. My lease favorite place …

Moving My Mountains

I am moving mountains! Or at least that’s what it feels like. In August I started a Crossfit Challenge. I wrote about it a few weeks ago in my “I’m not Zen Enough” piece. I was so excited that I had found something I was loving. And I was getting over the fact that I am not Zen enough for yoga! Well, my progress has been great! I am feeling better every day. These workouts are challenging, but I am moving the needle, lifting the weights …

Socks for Surgery

I have to dedicate my post this week to my sweet boy. 10 years ago I became a heart mom. At 21 weeks we found out that we were going to have another sweet baby boy. But we also found out that his heart was not forming correctly and there may be other complications as well. There is nothing that can prepare a new parent for this kind of news. And when you start on this journey, you have to lean into a strength you …
