My mom jeans

This isn’t your typical wellness post!! It is about body image and mommy mentality. When I was younger I remember people often referring to a certain style of jean as “mom jeans”. They were typically very long in the pocket/zipper region, buttoned up past the belly button, were more tapered than was trendy and definitely […]

Wellness Wednesday: Week 13

I wake uo nearly every morning and the first thing I do is write in my gratitude journal. I just write whatever flows naturally. This is part of my wellness. Even if I’m tired and sore when I wake up, I can think of things to be grateful for. Nearly every morning God, my husband […]

Wellness Wednesday: Week 12

I haven’t done a Wellness Wednesday check in for a month now.  CRAZY.  I was busy getting ready for vacation, then on vacation and then last week trying to get out of the post vacation “let down.” This morning I decided it was important for me to check in for me and see how much […]

Wellness Wednesday: Week 7

I want to say first and foremost that wellness isn’t strictly about what we eat, how often we exercise or how much we way.  Wellness is about being in good health and more specifically having this be a goal for yourself day in and day out. That is what this weekly post is about.  A […]

Wellness Wednesday: Week 6

Well….Well….Well I have had a killer headache since Saturday!  So, I wasn’t expecting very much from my check-in today.  I literally haven’t cared about my low-carb eating at all and I have eaten anything and everything that sounded good. Low and behold though, I am down another pound.  That is a total of 12.2 since […]

Wellness Wednesday Week 5

Happy Hump Day! I am at a standstill with my weight. Which I am actually very thankful for. I cheated on my low-carb way of eating Sunday for the Super Bowl. It was the first time I drank beer in over a month. I also indulged in pizza, breadsticks and chips. It was all worth […]

Best Life: Week 4

If this is your first week of 2019 reading my wellness post, you can catch up here Best Life, Best Life: One Week In, Best Life: Week 2, Best Life: Week 3.  I am not super concerned about getting myself to a specific goal weight.  I am just concerned about keeping myself healthy.  I am judging this way more […]

Best Life: Week 3

Holding myself accountable is something that I truly enjoy.  It really helps me to stay on task and focused.  My current accountability is here, you.  Though…I am not really sure anyone cares or would “yell” at me if I fell off the wagon.  Just the idea of disappointing is good enough reason for me to […]

Best Life: One Week In

Last week I wrote a post called Best Life where I talked about my health goals for the year. Every Wednesday I will check-in here, so you all can hold me accountable! I have done Yoga with Adriene for the last 8 days strong and plan to continue. Man, do my days just go better […]
