The Journey of the Warrior

I do not believe everything happens for a reason. But, I do believe we can find reason in every happening. I am currently looking for a job again. This will be approximately the 5th time since 2011 that one or both of us will be without a full time job. There have been many reasons for […]

Dysfunctional Food Relationships and Holiday Eating

My Mom and I recently started the 131 Diet. It’s a bit of a misnomer because it’s not a diet like you are probably thinking of; no one is telling us what to eat or not eat. Rather, it’s more of an educational program and phased eating approach that helps you understand which foods make […]

Where On Earth Have I Been?!

I’m dusting off my blog and sitting down to write a blog post for the first time in months. I broke the cardinal rule of blogging… I stopped posting consistently. *I’d like to pause here for a moment to give all the bots a heartfelt thanks for continuing to spam my blog and keep my […]

The Expected and the Unexpected

Like all worthwhile challenges in life, being a parent is not easy. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying or has a very well paid nanny… and if they wanted to lend said nanny to me, I would totally be down! Some challenges (like not getting much sleep) I was prepared for… some challenges […]

Being a Mom-Entrepreneur and Not to Losing Your Mind!

Do you like how the title of this post sounds like I’m going to give you advice?! The truth is, I’m writing this in our guest room/office, drinking a glass of red wine, with the baby monitor next to me while our almost-one-year-old takes a nap. And I had a legit nervous breakdown a few […]

10 Year Diaversary and the Top 5 Things I’ve Learned from 10 years with Diabetes

I finally received my Lilly Diabetes 10 Year Award! It’s crazy to think that I was diagnosed with diabetes 10 years ago! My life has changed pretty substantially over those 10 years. I’ve moved to NYC and back. I’ve gotten married, bought a house and had a baby. Despite also having PCOS and Hashimotos, I’ve been […]

Going All In

The best way to get a new wardrobe is to burn all of your clothes.   I remember the first time I heard that. It was several years ago at a PSI Leadership Training Course I was taking. It has stuck with me for all this time. And it really is so true, the best way […]

What To Do When Your Confidence Wavers

The truth about confidence is that it’s all about balance and figuring out how to handle the days when you just don’t have it. It’s like what they say about courage; courage isn’t being brave all the time, courage is knowing when and how to face your fears – and then facing them even when […]

5 Secrets to Unleashing Your Confidence

I am a very confident person. Even on rough days, bloated days, and yucky days, I can still feel pretty confident about myself. But, I definitely have not always been that way. And there are days that I still struggle, but those days are slowly becoming fewer and fewer. There isn’t anything special about me […]

2016: The Year of Adulting

I am a Mother and a Homeowner. Even though I’m 31, I don’t really feel old enough or experienced enough to be either of those things. It’s still weird to hear people refer to me as Mrs. But, 2016 was the year I officially became an adult – or at least became adult enough to be responsible […]
