I knew today was my day to post something but to be honest with you I had no idea what to write about.  I’m in the middle of a series focusing on health and exercise.  While important, it’s not...
I’ve been brainstorming this series for quite some time now.  I’ve thought a lot about hips; your hips and my hips.  And I’ve come to realize that there are a lot of ways we describe this part of our...
I wanted to share this great post from a good friend's blog about ways you can help a friend with a sick child.  Courtney has three quite adorable children and is very conscientious about the choices she makes for...
The holiday season has arrived.  The first snowfall always brings excitement.  There really is something magical about snowfall in the holiday season.  I have been listening to my friends, co-workers and even my patients discuss all the things that...
Here we are! It's officially the holiday season! And do you know what that means? I'm taking some time off of stepping on the scale. Now, let's get it straight... I'm still diary free, so there's an easy weight...

Hey y'all! It's been 8 days since I went dairy-free, and I must say...it's working. I'm so excited that changing my diet has helped with the spit-up and reflux of my two month old bundle o' joy! But let's...
In an effort to cut down on the amount that my 2 month old spits up after each nursing session, I'm making changes. I'm going dairy free, y'all! Why? Because cows milk is the #1 food item that passes...
While I'm on my mission of getting my pre-pregnant jeans over my hips, I've been finding healthier recipe options. I'm known to eat my fair share of ice cream (yeah, yeah, yeah - bad choice. I know...), and I've...
We all hear that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day." While you probably agree with that sentiment you also probably agree that it's not always so simple. We're contending with animal feeding, shower taking, diaper changing, dashes...
Welcome back! As you know, I'm on a mission! A mission to get back into my old jeans. Time to kiss those pregnancy pounds goodbye! The little peanut is now 8 weeks old and I officially have the green light on...
If you haven’t been to visit Regal Gymnastics in their new Essex location lately then you should.  My son thought their facility in Winooski was pretty incredible but it really is nothing compared to where they are now.  To...
