Hi, all of you lovely fans of mine! I have to admit, I am fighting a bit of a writer’s block. And, instead of getting down about it, I recently asked my Facebook friends for suggestions. One of my good friends, Diane, actually suggested that I interview other ‘Fit Mommy’s’ and use this information as […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
A friend asked me on FB if I could weigh in on this photo that went viral like croup in Fall… Oh, where to begin….This photo is not only a blogger’s dream, but this fitness mom/business owner/mom of two boys/blogger’s personal writing fantasy vacation.

We decided it was time to take the family up to grandma and grandpa’s cabin last weekend. While the trip only takes a few hours, I often feel as if ‘the crazy life’ is left behind along with a reliable wireless signal and loud top 40 radio stations. We had decided that it would be […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Weird week…I’m finishing up prep for the kids to go back to school, working just a ‘little bit’ and running a temporary daycare out of my house. Whilst the kids fling toys around upstairs and climb trees outside, I am pretending that I am working hard on this blog. The reality is that I was just […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
My tagline: Trying to stay sane and in shape in the real World. My favorite part of my tagline: In the real World… See, I don’t live in a bubble. Just like you, I am busy. My work and kid’s schedule makes me feel like I have to perform a constant juggling act from day […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
