When I found out I was pregnant for the first time, after the joyful tears and the shocking realization that we were going to have a BABY (!), I went right out and got the book, What to Expect When Your Expecting.
But I found I rarely cracked it open.
Instead I poured over the baby and parenting books. The ones that taught you what to do once the baby was out. It was so clear to me that the tough part was coming on the other side of the pregnancy.

That’s the title of the talk I’m giving for a Wellness Summit created by my friend Dr. Orlena Kerek. It’s impressive what she managed to put together, nearly 40 talks on topics ranging from sleep and stress to pain and plant based eating.

Plateaus can be sooooo frustrating.
We’re plugging along, doing our thing, eating well and moving in ways we haven’t before. And it’s working. We’re feeling better and losing weight. We’re motivated to keep on going.
All is well.
Then one week when we know we’ve done everything “right” we hop on the scale and no change. Sigh. It happens.
We keep on keeping on knowing it will show up soon. Our...

Last week we talked about Weight Goals (catch up here)—they are milestones on the way to your Goal.
Today we get to talk about Goal Weight and in particular how to pick yours.
The term “Ideal Weight” can have a negative connotation. As if there is some magic number that all bodies should be if they are a certain height.
Just writing that seems preposterous to me. It’s clear to anyone who’s ever been to a beach or mall that...
Whenever I start working with someone to lose weight, we always discuss the Goal. I call it your Ideal Weight or your Goal Weight. Not to be confused with a Weight Goal.
Weight Goals and Ideal Weight are two different things.
Now, they could be the same thing, but it’s useful to think of them as two separate things when you’re starting a weight loss journey.
A Weight Goal is the first stop on the way to your Ideal Weight.
Just to be clear, you already fast.
Every time you snuggle in bed for the night, you’re not eating for hours in a row. And then you break the fast by eating . . . well, breakfast.
So fasting itself is not the issue.
The trending topic of Intermittent Fasting highlights fasting for weight control.
There are different ways to get that done:
Some fans of fasting suggest fasting 2 out of every 7 days, other more extremists support...
I just watched my kid’s final social studies presentation. I was such a proud mama. It’s hard to believe the school year’s coming to an end. Another transition.
That means a change in schedules.
Many can’t wait for summer to arrive, only counting the days ‘til school’s out and morning routines loosen.
But, as always, I’m here to remind you it’s a good idea to anticipate the changes and plan for them :)...
I just finished Gary Keller’s The ONE Thing.
It’s a productivity book.
I’ve been into those lately and I’m surprised by how much I’ve learned from this genre. I consider myself an organized person, but some of these concepts (nothing earth-shatteringly new by the way) have made a huge difference.
Because I’ve committed to them.
We can think we know a lot about a subject, but being...
It was just Mother’s Day and now Memorial Day is coming up.
Any holiday has the potential to derail our food plan so I usually take the opportunity to remind us all of the pit falls to watch for so we can have a successful (eating) day or weekend.
This Mother’s Day came and went without much of the usual advice from me about:
