I am 10 days into my health challenge there has been a lot of highs and lows. The main goal was to break some bad habits and hopefully strengthen my immune system.
Ah…my fitness routine…this is the topic my brain gets picked about most…
If you have been around here for a while you probably know I am a fitness enthusiast and I LOVE my daily routines. Naturally, I had to make a fitness routine that I could fit into our busy lifestyle.
This fitness routine also had to be done without setting foot in a gym. A few years ago when I first started exercising again I tried to go to a women’s gym.
Between the time it took to get us there, all the interruptions (they would come get me for every.little.thing) and limited child care hours I figured I could get a better workout at home on my time.
These last 10 days have been pretty rough. Earlier in March we went on a roadtrip to visit family, it was great and everyone had a lot of fun. Along the way we picked up a nasty cold virus. The kids recovered pretty quickly, I on the other hand, have not.
I get asked quite often by friends and family for my favorite vegan recipes. I am forever sending everyone links to my favorite vegan recipes from around the web.

I get a pretty serious case of the “blues” this time of year. The stress of life coupled with icky weather make for a sad me. Over the last few years I have been able to combat the winter blues (or the blahs as I like to call them) with a few simple strategies. Read … Read more
One of the hardest habits for me to establish after having kids was regular exercise. Before kids I was very active and in pretty good shape. I really wasn’t prepared for how hard it would be to get back into the habit of daily exercise once I had a few children. I had several reasons … Read more
A couple weeks ago my hubby asked if I would try going on a plant based diet for the month of November. My first thought was HECK NO! You see, about 4 years ago we tried this and failed miserably. But this was pretty important to him so I said I would give it a … Read more
Once upon a time my family had a terrible diet. At the time I didn’t know any better. I thought kids were supposed to eat “kid food” and adults “adult food.” That was how I grew up and for the most part you live what you learn. But I also believe that when you know … Read more
