Wellness Update 4.3.19

Hey Ya'll! I promise this won't be a novel like last week! Haha! But, seriously- I have had a very interesting week learning to adjust to this new routine, and every day I learn a little bit more about myself, about letting go, about how strong I already am, and about little by little progress. [...]

The Spiritual Implications of Changing My Workout Routine

Welcome to a stream of consciousness post where I process and share at the same time. So, that title is kinda tongue in cheek, but also kinda not. It's clearly no secret that i have really struggled to reach my fitness/ fat loss goals the past four years since my sweet Baby Duck was born, [...]

Re-programming Diet Mentality

So, I have a very close and dear and precious and important and wonderful friend who has fairly recently also become a health coach, and until very recently I have been very uncomfortable whenever I see his posts.

Bluebirds, Buttermilk Biscuits, Bubble Butts, and Recovery Days

This week has been...unexpectedly impactful so far, and it's not even halfway over. First, I'm pretty sure a pair of bluebirds is nesting in my birdhouse, or will soon. I've seen them at least a few times a day the past few days-yesterday they stayed for over an hour around lunchtime, and almost as long [...]
