The Day my Daughter Woke Me Up

The Day my Daughter Woke Me Up

Keep it moving all day long

Sometimes when my son and I are doing errands on the weekend, he complains that he is tired and needs to sit. I ask him why - especially if he has only been standing for a few minutes - but then I remember that he is in school now and he has become used to sitting all day.…

My heart just can't take it

I still hate running.

I have my good days and my bad days; I have times when I am not getting out of the bed in the morning to run and those times when I am able to convince myself to run because it is the right thing to do. It is a daily struggle. But I try (oh so very hard) to stick with…

How old are you really?

A few months ago, a couple of coworkers were trying to figure out my age. Eventually, one of them just came out and asked me. Several of them thought I was significantly younger than I actually am. I know this is not because of the way I look (I think I look my age), but rather because of the energy level that I have.…

When your baby fat grows up

All mothers know there are two definitions of the phrase "baby fat." The first definition describes the extra roll of fat that clings to babies and is absolutely adorable. The second definition refers to those extra pounds that cling to a woman's body after she has the baby (and is considered much less adorable). Mothers usually blame their baby for their weight gain, and then try their luck at getting rid of it.…

I THINK I Found A Way To Stay Motivated to Workout

No, I'm serious...this time!

OK, OK, I know you've "read it all before" when it comes to me posting about going to workout, or going to follow a plan, but by George I think I've finally got it! A few days…

I'm stalking myself

I asked for - and received - a fitbit for Christmas. I thought it would make me move more throughout my day. And maybe it does. But what it has really done has made me obsessed with my sleep.

Every morning, I sync over my data and look at my sleep efficiency. I stare at the magenta areas: What is waking me…

CAP Barbell Deluxe Bench with 100 Pound Weight Set Review

I've been looking for a sturdy weight bench for my husband but one in my budget that can still give us the features we need. I was seriously considering Gold's Gym XRS 20 Olympic Workout Bench (still considering it), but I would have to buy the bar and weight plates separate which I didn't want do. I came across the CAP set (currently under $100), which wouldn't take up as much space, which means I wouldn't have to get rid of…

Coasting in the classroom

There are several people in my office who stand while they work. I admire them. Because although I know I need to stand up more in my day, I'm not yet at the point where I am ready to raise my desk. (I'd have to stop wearing heels to the office, for one thing.)…

It's 3 pm, and I can't remember what I'm supposed to be doing

For months, I've become interested in my son's memories: What will his first long-term memory be? What memories from this age will he retain?

But at some point, I've realized that I've started losing some of my memories. I…

Negotiating a game of Calvinball

Like many other very cool people, I am a fan of Calvin & Hobbes. And because of that, I know the rules of Calvinball:

  1. You make up the rules as you go along.
  2. You can't play the game the same way…

Secrets To My Energy All Day!

My day starts at 5.30 a.m. almost every day and I don’t rest until 11 p.m. I am a full time mom of a toddler, a full time blogger and a full time house maker. Often, I have been asked how do I manage to sustain my energy all day and look fresh and vibrant at the same time? Today I decided to answer…

How long am I supposed to run?

I would not describe myself as a runner. Runners tend to try races and talk about branching out to trails and go through sneakers much faster than I do. But, I do run for exercise. And, although I do not enjoy it, I would say that I have tolerated it more than most other exercises.…

Contribution of Bananas in our Diet

The moment we think of bananas, the first three things that come to our mind are carb, fat and calories. But our body does need some calories, fat and carbs for general survival and well-being. Banana has some amazing nutritional facts, which are essential for…

The influence of siblings on your weight

My son is relatively fit. He gets plenty of fresh air and exercise (way more than I do), and he likes to show me his "big muscles." As parents, we are trying to reinforce the idea of staying healthy. We are slowly winning him over - not to the point of eating vegetables - but our son definitely requests that we run around outside, go swimming, ride bikes and do other activities that are really active.…

I need to go stand outside now

I have fond memories of my Mom telling me to "go outside and play" almost every day in the summer (thanks, Mom!). And so I did: I explored our neighborhood parks, rode my bike and chased fireflies. It was fun.

In college, I didn't own a car and I walked everywhere. I spent hours outside classrooms soaking up the sunshine.…

When Too Much Is Too Much

I started to let my anxiety and low self-esteem take over my mind this morning.  I really didn't want to feel that way so I fought to keep these emotions at bay and I fought hard.  It's been 3 hours now and, so far so good.  What did I do?  Let's see...

Keep up the good work, moms and dads!

My husband and I played tag this weekend with our son and niece. Playing tag as an adult is completely different than how you remember it. For starters, a big chunk of the fun is watching children react when they realize you are chasing them: They fall down in fits of giggles, try to direct you to tag someone else and even run toward you just to become "it" next. I also learned that my husband still tries to chase after me, which after…
