The Rundown – Hot Mess
Those two words pretty much sum up how I feel after the Thanksgiving holiday — a hot mess. I have a holiday hangover, only a few short weeks to get all the shopping, wrapping, photo card, giving and party planning done and the boys had half days for what seemed like an eternity. It is […]

My Week Supplemented
Thank you Council for Responsible Nutrition for sponsoring this post. This is #MyWeekSupplemented. Up until this past year, I didn’t really believe in supplements.  I thought I ate a well rounded healthy diet.  Why would I need to add supplements?

The Rundown – The Other Side
It’s fantastic to be on the other side of the holidays! Even though my kids were home for almost three weeks straight, my dog continues to cause ridiculous amounts of stress and a warm day is anything that is a positive number, I’m still grateful to be firmly in January of a new year. Adios […]

My Year of Running 2017
Well, 2017 didn’t turn out exactly how I had imagined when we turned over a year ago! If you would have told me I would be 34 weeks pregnant at this moment, I am not sure I would have believed you…actually, I know I wouldn’t! Or I would have wondered what catastrophic injury took me […]
