The WW weekly discussion topic this week was Get Happier, Get Healthier. Because when you’re happier, it doesn’t seem as hard to move around more, or make healthy choices, its as if they come naturally, and these choices that you make which make you feel good can also inspire you to keep going and in turn continue feeding into your happiness. So what is … Read More Weekly Discussion: What’s your happiness?
Anastasia is not old enough where I’m dealing with this with her currently but I’ve made this discovery about myself as well. WW (aka WeightWatchers) is a great program because it is not one of those “diets” where you have to cut out food, you don’t have to cut out carbs, or sweets, or whatever else you like as long as you work the … Read More Moderation or Deprivation
This is not an advice post. This is more of a question to any mamas and readers out there. When did you bring back date-night after having your baby? Truth is, with Anastasia being born prematurely, the first 3 months we would often get dinner together before going to visit. Josh would try to get me out of the house whenever he could to … Read More Return of the elusive date night…
Hi everyone, this is going to be a short one because I don’t know how long my electricity is going to last. As many of you know the east coast is being hammered by Hurricane Florence, which thank God has weakened to a category 1 hurricane but is still doing some pretty hefty damage. I live 2 hours from the North Carolina coast so … Read More Hurricane Florence: What to stock up on for your infant!
It’s been a busy week I’ll admit. In between working and sitting in the car, for a total of 3 hours, commuting I treasure the moments I get with my sweet little girl and sometimes that makes writing a little difficult. Especially now that she is starting to stay awake longer and is laughing and smiling. So while we spend our nights talking and … Read More Another Weekly Discussion: Non-Scale Victories
I was thinking about my reflections on this weeks weekly topic and started to think, how can I teach Anastasia to love her self, and have confidence in herself, when I do not have the confidence or self-esteem myself. As you read in my previous post you know that this is something I struggle with but am improving and self reflecting. But to piggy-back off … Read More Your shadow is watching: teaching by example.
It’s crazy to think that 4 months has passed since Anastasia made her debut into this world. Our little girl certainly has a mind of her own and no one could tell her when to arrive she had to come on her own terms. She has flourished amazingly, is growing and eating great and we absolutely love her to bits. She’s 4 months old … Read More Another month just flies by
For any of my Weight Watchin’ buddies out there you know exactly what I am referring to. But for those of you who don’t know, when you join Weight Watchers you are told to choose a reason why, why you are doing what you’re doing. Everyone has their own reason for wanting to take back control of their body. They could be health related … Read More My Why: A reminder at why I am choosing to be a healthier new me.
Since it was my 2 year anniversary yesterday it got me thinking. Romance doesn’t just die after you bring home a newborn. Granted, my type of romance isn’t your typical gifts and chocolates, although I do like to receive flowers. But rather it is things that we can do together or for one another. After Anastasia was born, since she was in the NICU … Read More 5 ways to keep the romance alive after bringing home a newborn.
So today marks mine and Joshua’s two year wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been two years since we got married. But things have definitely changed. For our first wedding anniversary it was just us two, we both took the day off, we reserved a table at a fancy restaurant, and we had a small photoshoot at home. Our outfits matched, we dressed up, … Read More Anniversaries: Before and after children.
