Mother’s Day revelation

I hope all the mommas out there had a good Mother’s Day  I wanted to make my return to blogging yesterday, but my site had something else in mind.  This morning things are back to normal (a bit) so I’m ready to dive in. Motherhood has changed my life completely and I feel like I keep saying the same things over and over. I don’t think I’m that interesting or what I do is anything special. But there are people who still follow me, who are interested in the journey, and just want to know. I need to share those… View Post

Friday Five (on Saturday): Motivation Edition

Yesterday was a crazy, long day for me so I didn’t have a chance to get my blog post done.  I hope you don’t mind that I’m posting a Friday Five on a Saturday.  I hope everyone had a great week.  I’ve been watching the Olympics all week long and it’s great to see people going after their dreams.  It’s been a good week so I have no complaints.  I ate my prepped meals and really enjoyed what we had for dinner.  See, it does pay to try something new. On to my list.  I got some new stuff to… View Post

A non running week

I have declared this a non-running week and it sucks.  I’m already having a really awesome week so this just tops it off. I have a perfectly valid reason for not running this week, but it doesn’t make it any better.  My hip flexor is pretty torn up and I need it to heal.  I haven’t really run without pain since having the baby but it’s something that is manageable.  I thought I was hitting my running stride in December and then this happened. A couple of weeks ago I ran the Louisiana half marathon and the quarter marathon the day… View Post

Reasons to slow down while eating

Yesterday, I was traumatized because I saw my life flashing before my eyes.  I simply wanted to eat lunch with my daughter and it turned into a nightmare situation. I got some food stuck in my throat.  I could still breathe and mumble a bit, but I knew it was just a matter of seconds before those positive things would turn into a negative. I really thought I was going to die and it scared the crap of me.  There were many things that ran through my mind, but they all revolved around my sweet baby girl. Eventually, the food… View Post

Breaking my Hurricane Harvey silence

I know it’s been awhile since my last blog. I will not lie dealing with Hurricane Harvey has been one of the most stressful things I’ve had to deal with in a long time. This time was different because I have a small child to usher through this situation. I am very lucky my home was not flooded. It was really just luck that it didn’t because MOST of my neighborhood took water in their homes. All I can say is we got lucky and right now we’re just trying to bridge the gap of making life work again, after… View Post
