I apologize for the delay in my posting. It took me a few more days to wrap my head around these last eight weeks. It is hard to believe our Body Well group started on September 14, 2020 and concluded on Monday, November 9th. We started once the school year kicked off and it has felt like we have experienced all four seasons in between then and now. There was so much uncertainty around the beginning of the school year. I was thankful for this...

Alright fellow Mamas, it is week six of Body Well and I have to say I have an established workout routine! It has not been easy and it has taken more time than I would like to admit; however, I am closing those exercise rings on a regular basis! (Anyone else motivated by their personal activity trackers? E.g. Apple watch, Fitbit, Garmin, etc.) I attend FIT4MOM Zoom classes and then run as part of the FIT4MOM Run Group. I figure if I can...

FIT4MOM came into my life after the birth of my second child. As most mothers, I wanted to lose some of the pregnancy weight. I did a summer Body Back session and fell in love. The coach was supportive and the comradery of mothers demonstrated to me that I was missing something I didn’t even know existed. I did a few more classes but was not able to attend once I went back to my work schedule. I continued to follow their Instagram and...

I unexpectedly had some time this weekend sans kids. I had some errands to run and was able to fly solo for an unprecedented amount of time. Is it just me or do you do a double take when you look in the backseat and see empty car seats? It’s like a slight panic and then sweet relief. It felt eerie and WONDERFUL. Sunday afternoon, I was not a mother. I was just a woman- walking around Target not buying groceries.

You know what aisle...

Monday morning- it seemed like everywhere I looked in the house there were things that needed to be done. Dishes in the sink, laundry in the baskets, unfinished homework assignments, unordered groceries and Cheerio-filled car seats and couch cushions. Monday morning rolled around and I considered dropping out of my virtual Stroller Strides class. I was up thanks to my children who are early risers. How does a night owl have early birds? It...

This week’s challenge was to eat those leafy greens. I realized that I am far from the amount that the striped shirt sailor would guzzle in one gulp. I had major guilt shopping for my greens this week since I have bought those plastic containers from Costco or Meijer only to have them go wilty and liquidy. Yes….liquid greens. It’s not a new health kick. Ugh, the money I spent! With each new purchase, I had high hopes of blending them into...
