January is quickly coming to an end. It's gone by pretty quickly, hasn't it! I know so many people who set goals for themselves and then who stopped short and decided to quit trying. Here's the thing, it's better to fuck shit up and fail than it is to not try at all. A lot of… Continue reading Let’s talk about motivation.
Warning: This post is very wordy, apparently we have a lot to say about PCOS! In the past week I have had numerous friends vent their frustrations about PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome. In a society that is so focused on feminine beauty, it can be hard to live with a hormonal imbalance that makes women… Continue reading A chat about PCOS
If you have never seen the movie called "The Family Stone," I highly recommend it. It is my all time favorite holiday movie, because of the chaos that is family and the emotional context that is portrayed in nearly every scene. We see Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker), a high strung career woman initially fail to… Continue reading Smoke and mirrors in the living room
Thanksgiving is this week, can you believe it?! With the added stress of the holiday decadence, I knew that I had to introduce you guys to one of my very best friends. Michelle has lost a total of 130 pounds and I had to pick her brain on how she did it. Also, I am… Continue reading Meet Michelle (an interview- part 1)
I've had an interesting week, to say the least! Sadly, this weekend I have been sick and in bed most of the time. Tea, soup, some reading, and my favorite candle have helped. In addition to family snuggles, of course! R had to work for about 15 hours on Friday and 15 hours on Saturday,… Continue reading Sunday Musings…

It took a long breath and replied, 'I have been waiting my whole life for this." Anxiety is a very strange thing, and can manifest itself in different ways. It's… Continue reading Landed myself in the ER
I debated a lot about writing this post, but this is my life and this is my blog. It is cathartic and therapeutic to write. After crying all night long, and dealing with a very upset stomach due to my anxiety, talking with friends and family... I decided, I'm just going to bite the bullet… Continue reading My husband’s boots…
Things people have told me. Professionals. Family members. Friends. "You're going to lose the baby weight!" (my child is six, but this was said to me when I first said that I was going to start riding my bike) "I got you this outfit, and you've lost weight so it must fit you by now!" … Continue reading A word on weight loss…
Did you know that I "collect" angels? This is a very recent thing. I used to collect angels/dolls/fairies when I was a little little girl but when I got into my teenage years I tossed them along with my yearbooks and a whole bunch of other "stuff." You see, I don't like a lot of… Continue reading Random thoughts/advice
Self love is super important. I feel like everyone knows that to a certain extent, but actually realizing that truth in it's rawest form is something else entirely. Fate has a strange sense of humor. Just when we feel like we are getting our rhythm, life throws us a curve ball and we are knocked… Continue reading What is (self) love?
