Tips for Surviving Spring Sports

Yo Mama! LOL! What? It made me laugh. I’m easy like that! Spring is in the air! Well, not really. It’s SOOOOOooooo cold outside! But my first spring game is next Monday night! It better warm up quick! I know they won’t play in 20 degree weather, but guess what, they will play in 30 and 40 degree weather! And DANG… it’s cold outside. So I thought I’d share some of my survival tips and PRAY that you share yours! Mama’s unite! And keep our …

February

February is such a weird month. I feel bad for it sometimes. Does anyone look forward to February? I live in the midwest and I can tell you February is GREY! The sky, the climate, the trees, the earth and the feeling is grey. There is no hint of spring yet. There is only cold and a chill in the air that hits you all the way deep inside your soul. How do you get through February? I don’t know. It’s glum. And sad. And …

Are Your Jeans Hurting You?

I bought some new jeans and I love them! They are from Express and they are so comfortable and fit me perfectly. Those two things are RARELY written about jeans! Let’s be honest! AND, here’s the even better part, they run big so I had to go in and buy an even smaller size. BONUS! Run, don’t walk! They are the best! But there’s one downfall. The button must contain nickel. It’s so weird. This topic has come up a few times in the last …

The Goal Line

Setting goals and achieving them is something many of us strive to do every year. We may set a New Year’s Resolution and then map out a way to achieve it. For me, my New Year’s resolutions started last August. I can tell you that this is the first year I didn’t wait for the new year to start. I took a leap of faith in the middle of the summer and mapped out some goals I wanted to achieve in the new year. Guess …

Girl, Wash Your Face

Girl, Wash Your Face! First, that’s a great book by Rachel Hollis. If you aren’t following her, you should be. Love her inspiration and no nonsense way of looking at life! And this book was GREAT! Now to the washing your face topic. I was recently asked what my beauty secrets are. This always seems so crazy to me because my regimen is the simplest it’s ever been and my face is healthier and clearer than it’s ever been. But it starts with the fact …

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 …
