There is a season for everything in life

Things totally change when you become a parent. There is a season in life for everything. There are seasons in our life where nutrition and exercise are not the priority. The key is to recognize that these are seasons to our life, and even though winter feels like it will last forever – spring is coming!

A Life Without Limitations

This past week my family and I took a 3-day trip hiking into Zealand Falls Hut in the White Mountains. While we were in the hut, we had the pleasure of meeting many amazing people, one of whom was Greybeard. Dale (Greybeard) is a thru-hiker on a mission to hike the entire Appalachian Trail.

How a working mom of 5 committed to healthy living and started feeling AWESOME again

Life is just so busy. We are pulled in so many different directions. We have commitments at work, with our families, and in the community. Taking care of ourselves and committing to healthy living falls to the bottom of the list.

This works OK for a period of time. Eventually, it will catch up with us and being all things to all people leaves us feeling depleted and drained at the end of the day.

In order to be at our best for the people who rely on us, we need to commit first to taking care of ourselves. ‘You need to put your oxygen mask on first.’
