September Whole 30!

As I wrote in Getting Ready for a September Whole 30, I originally planned on starting a September Whole 30 on Tuesday Sept 6, but our Labor Day weekend plans have changed so I decided to actually start it yesterday, Monday.  I was originally going to wait to begin the Whole 30 after the weekend since we were going to be out of town.  But since plans have changed and we will be in town I will have better control of my meals and plus I am just really excited to do my 3rd round of Whole 30.

What I Ate Wednesday

I am going to join in on the “What I Ate Wednesday” bandwagon.  Not sure if it will be a regular Wednesday thing or not at this point.  But I thought it would be fun to track through pictures what I ate throughout the day.

First up: Breakfast!  I love breakfast, however our mornings are quite hectic so I generally make myself a smoothie. Continue reading...

End of Summer Blues

I am sad.  Very, very sad.  Today is my least favorite day of the entire year…the last day of summer with my kiddos.  I hate back to school.  I absolutely love having my children with me all day during the summer.  I saw a picture floating around facebook one year that  showed some kids with their backpacks on standing in front of their garage and they all had these very sad expressions on their little faces.

Meet My Family

When I decided to start this blog, I knew that I would write about my family but I also knew that I wanted to keep their identities somewhat private.  It is just a personal decision.  I know some people write blogs and are comfortable sharing everything.  Some like to keep certain things private.  I fall into the private group.  I will definitely be sharing some personal stuff here on the blog, but when it comes to my kids’ names and pictures of them, those will remain private.  You will probably see pictures of them from behind or above, but not their faces.

Yearly Dermatologist Visit

I recently had my yearly full body skin check with my dermatologist. Superman went for his the same day because I make him go for a yearly check up as well! I love my dermatologist. I think she does a very thorough job checking for suspicious looking spots. She checks head (love her checking my scalp since it feels like she is playing with my hair!) to toe and in spots that you just can’t check yourself. Continue reading...

My Personal Healthy Living Guidelines

I love reading and learning about healthy living, nutrition, and fitness.  I have for a long, long time.  My love for fitness probably began during my early teen years.  I can remember working out with my mom to Jane Fonda videos.  I also loved the Buns of Steel videos and was crazy for step aerobics when it came out.  My eating back then was not so good.  I am not comfortable going into details, but I had eating issues that I am not proud of.  I also had very low self-esteem in high school which contributed to some eating issues.  But luckily, things got better during my senior year of high-school (that’s when I met and fell in love with my hubby and I know he had something to do with this!
