To Plan or Not to Birth Plan?

Going on my third child, I’ve learned a very important thing about plans, they change!  Us Moms learn this day one on the job. As a new, Mom-to-be about to give birth 4 years ago, I was all about the birth plan. I wanted to learn about all the options available to me and my baby to ensure our health and safety, so I went all in with my self-education. I’m glad I did it then when I had the time to explore and decide without the distraction of other kiddos and a thousand additional things on my plate.

Kick the Heartburn and Indigestion during Pregnancy with these Natural Solutions that work

You’re pregnant, you’re feeling big and uncomfortable, and you’re throwing up in your mouth. Yuck!  Heartburn, reflux, and indigestion are no friends to any pregger.  Here’s the skinny on how to put out the fire, and prevent it from happening in the first place.

My Scare on the Turnpike: A story every Mom should hear.

We’re on our way home from a fun, relaxing weekend at my brother’s lake house.  Shore traffic has us in bumper to bumper traffic with a toddler and baby in the back seat, me driving, and Daddy in the passenger seat. What should’ve only been a 2 hour trip was turning into a 3 plus hour tour. Gotta love family road trips in the summer!  About 3 hours in to the ride my 14 month old started losing it.  No binky, toy, or song could console this kid.  My 4 yr.

Lessons from the NICU

Being a new Mom is hard.  Throw in the NICU, and you’re upping the challenge factor big time.  My first born Roman, who is now 4, was my NICU baby.  Roman was born with SVT (a heart condition) and Hirshsprung’s Disease, which he needed reconstructive bowel surgery to correct at the ripe age of 6 weeks old.  Talk about being thrown in to the fire as a parent!

Warning Signs to Take it Down a Notch with your Pregger Workouts!

I'm all about staying fit and active when I'm pregger, and helping other preggers do the same.  And, why not? The benefits to me and baby are awesome!  I love, love, love my babes, but totally cringe at being prego, so working out keeps me feeling as close to myself as possible, decreases stress, and just helps me feel as good as I can during one of my least favorite times. 

Protein Packed Pumpkin Muffins

I'm like the hungry caterpillar! This Mommy is always on the move. Like you, right?  Whether I'm taking care of my todd and baby, teaching group ex classes and boot camps, or fitting in my 20 minute power workouts, I am pretty much in "Go" mode all day. I'm always looking for quick, grab n' go, healthy snacks that will fuel me up as I take on my day. These "Power Me Up Muffins" are one of my go to's. I borrowed the bulk of this recipe from pumpkinpaleomuffins.com. Big thanks to them! Then, I tweaked and played a bit, and this is what I got. What's beautiful about these is they are:

No Soy For You!

From thyroid disruption to being linked to cancers and infertility, there are many reasons why I'm on high soy alert with every label I read. Surprise! That s#*t's in everything! From soy lecithin, soy protein isolate, TVP, and every other secret, soy code, almost every processed food sneaks it in. Why? It's cheap, mass produced, and easy to dump into our food, and call it "healthy." Not to mention soy is one of the largest Genetically Modified crops in the world. That's a whole other story. Soy Free? Not so much.
