I can remember my first pair of glasses that I wore at four years old. They were 1980s-style (too-big-for-your-face) with a little cluster of strawberries on the arms near the hinge. I have had very poor eyesight for my entire life. My wonderful husband, however, has excellent eyesight. And thankfully, our son seems to…Continue

I'm being tested. But, I realized what my problem is. It's not mean friends or that I lack motivation, what I lack is a bit of self control. But I won't freak out, it's something I can fix as long as I ignore a certain friend!
As soon as I finished my trampoline workout, she called me. I heard her calling while doing…
Before I had my son, I got a cold around twice a year. It would annoy me for a few days and maybe even cause me to take a day off work to rest at home. My husband would only get a cold maybe one time a year.…Continue

Every summer morning, my brother and I would look at the thermometer near the kitchen door. If the thermometer said it was 74 degrees outside, then we were allowed to wear shorts. It was a big deal.…Continue

The other day I heard a comedian say that a successful marriage is when one partner gets to watch the other partner die first. Yes, that is pretty morbid, but it is also true: Marriage vows even state "til death do us part."…Continue

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.…Continue

Plantar Fasciitis is usually a widespread operating injury which has plagued most runners in their operating lives. Nonetheless, it really is one thing that, if caught easily, is usually treated rather successfully from house. When you’re obtaining heel discomfort any time you 1st get out of bed within the morning – then it gets improved as you begin moving about – it is a fantastic bet that it is Plantar Fasciitis that’s the culprit. The plantar fascia tissue runs in the heel, by way of the…Continue

Have them cook with you :-)
If you make it fun to participate in making the meals, they will look at the food differently... AND as a bonus, they might LIKE cooking and keep on helping :-) I have an 11 year old and he LOVES to cook.…Continue
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.…Continue

If you are a woman who has reached the age of 45, you are more likely to lose muscle mass if you don’t do anything to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Most women do not engage in exercise past the age of 40, and this could highly contribute to the loss of muscle, if an active exercise and body building regimen is not undertaken.
Along with regularly exercising, it is advisable to consume supplements in order to attain dietary requirements, especially while exercising.
I can see the pupils dilate and the wheels begin to turn when people find out that I'm married to a gynecologist. Paranoid as this may seem, I've answered enough questions and survived too many bizarre interactions to be caught with my pants down again. My husband commenced his OB-GYN residency two weeks…Continue
My Mom is an amazing woman (thanks, Mom!). And she is a tough woman: Being a single mom to two children while holding down a full-time job is a rough gig. Because she worked 60+ hour weeks, I learned how to cook and clean, as well as how to look after myself and get myself where I needed to go. I'm probably a more independent person today because of her.…

My son likes to tap on my fitbit. He likes to see how many dots I have and (after I explained what the dots are measuring) he encourages me to move around more to get all my dots for the day.
Most parents admit that they are uncomfortable talking with their children about…

It's 10 pm; the house is quiet. I double-check the locks on all the doors and go room-by-room, turning off the lights. The dishwasher is humming, the cat is following me, and there is a slight glow at the top of the stairs from our hallway nightlight. I slowly push back the door to my son's room to check on him. (I cherish the way he looks in slumber with one hand up by his face and an arm wrapped around his favorite stuffed animal.) I…Continue
