Yes, I know, I know, I’ve been bragging about being a health coach in training for awhile now, and I just love to talk your ears off about my amazing school, Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I have been learning so much and having a great time! One of the things that is amazing to me is that even though this is an online school, I have made connections with people all over the world! It’s pretty incredible.
But here’s the best part!
I am nearly at the point in my schooling where I can More »
Whoa guys, what just happened? The past two weeks have felt so very busy to me, like I could barely keep my head above water. This poor blog was certainly ignored. (Blowing dust off the pages) And yet, looking back, I can’t tell you what I have been doing to be so much more busy than normal. In fact, the beginning of June pretty much took every once of energy and concentration I had to all my usual stuff in, plan for our trip, and everything else that life just throws at you. And maybe that’s it? Maybe I just ran out of gas, and so time slowed down and so did I.
In any case, More »
Are you participating in the Sexy Summer Arms Challenge? How do your arms feel? There are just a few more days left in the month, how are you doing? Would you like a change of pace? I just found this other More »
With a peanut allergic little peanut in the house, buying granola bars is just out of the question. Even the nut-free kinds are usually made in the same factories with the nut ones, which is a big no-no when More »
Oh, the Blendtec blender. The king (or queen) of all blenders. A Blendtec blender is arguably the best blender of all time, and I’ve wanted one for years, but it has just simply not been in the budget.
It’s no secret I’m a smoothie lover (In fact, here is my Pinterest smoothie board, you should follow me!). For years the majority of my breakfasts have been made up of a cup of green deliciousness, packed with as much nutrition as I can get in there. My latest love involves More »
I wake up really early to exercise with the hope that I get some good alone time while my girls sleep and they don’t try to “help,” but this morning they decided to be early birds and crash my party. Here are some of the hilarious things they said to me as More »
As fair warning, this recipe uses sugar. While our family tries to steer clear of sugar most of the time, we do occasionally More »
Do you battle with picky eaters? Are vegetables scorned at your house, everything but cake and treats refused out of hand? Have tears been shed at the dinner table, theirs or even yours? Oh, how we’ve been there, but lately I have seen a light at the end of the tunnel!
Kids are sure fun little things. One day they are driving you crazy, and the next they are doing something so adorable and perfect that you just can’t help but love their sweet faces more than you ever thought possible. Most of all, they surprise you with how sponge-like they are, absorbing the things you do and say and spitting them back at you at the most unexpected times. Sometimes that can be a bad thing, like when you accidentally use a word you shouldn’t and you kid repeats it to everyone they see for the next week. Whoops. Most of the time it’s adorable, though!
For example, one day while discussing cheese choices at the grocery store, our 3-year-old chose out this prosciutto rolled together with cheese, held it up for us to see and asked, “Can we please buy some of this sweet deliciousness?”
