Now that the kids are back to school it is time to talk about the daily dilemma… school lunches and snacks during sports sessions. There are so many choices: homemade, school provided, bought, pre packaged, delivered, organic, or even forgotten and left on the counter.
Around this time of year, many people look at themselves and make the decision to lose weight, build muscle, and eat better. With these goals in mind, many people just hit the gym and buy healthier food at the start, thinking they can motivate themselves to a complete overhaul of their lifestyle overnight only to run into the brick wall of burnout when they don’t see the results right away. Everyone can achieve the goal of a healthier lifestyle, but it takes planning and patience. Here’s several tips to help you along your way to success.
I am a stay at home mom with two toddler boys. As an avid reader of online mom blogs, I know that it is perfectly normal for a mom of two children under two to be tired with “mom fog” and a messy bun not remembering the last time she showered. However, my situation is a little more complicated than a punch line of a mom blog. I suffer from Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and a slew of other autoimmune diseases that cause chronic pain and fatigue.
Being a new mom is amazing! There are so many exciting “firsts” that you are experiencing. So many ups and quite a few downs but ultimately a very rewarding experience. I am a lucky mom of an adorable little four-month-old baby boy, and over the past few weeks I have been so excited for the holidays…
Ahhh…. The sweet smell of sugary desserts, the laughter and joy as family members catch up, the loud chatter over the game… You know what time it is - you’ve got it, it’s the holiday season! Whether you are cooking up a Thanksgiving feast, decorating the tree, watching the parade, wrapping the gifts or just soaking it all up - the holidays are the most fun and festive times of the year. What makes these moments so special; family and food!
