Today I was able to button my pre-pregnancy jeans! Also today: Walgreens employee stopping herself mid-sentence while recommending cold medicines: "Unless..." she trails off, staring at my stomach. "What?" I snap. "Oh nothing," she replies, prying her eyes up from my midsection. "Unless you wanted to ask the pharmacist or something." 😑 ___________________________________ Today's outfit … Continue reading If you were wondering about my self-confidence…
The conversations started well before I became pregnant with my son. They came up when people asked me how I felt about pregnancy and about the 4th trimester and about the first year. They came up when one of my friends announced she was pregnant and again when her beautiful baby was born. I was … Continue reading Postpartum Self Care
Allow me to present: Farmers Market season!
One of my coworkers walked past my desk today with two boxes on her way to the lunch room. "There's pie," she said as she passed by. Pumpkin and apple. I have no idea what it was for but it looked delicious. And then our conference rooms were overbooked and not appropriately scheduled which meant … Continue reading Holiday Treats Come Early

There's something so simple about drawing hard lines about what you will and won't put into your body. I started this particular "Year of … Continue reading Whole30 Update: Day 21

I thought about adding a day to the challenge but since it was my made up challenge, it seemed like a pretty lackluster way to make myself feel better about skipping. So … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Days 29 and 30
I always say that anyone can do anything* for 30 days but 30 days really is a long time to do the same thing and continue finding interest in it. Or at least continue to find interest writing about it. I imagine it's the same for reading so I'm going to start condensing the last … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 25-28
