5 Things Every Wife Needs Her Husband to Understand

If there is anything almost nine years of marriage has taught me, it’s that I can’t get my husband to read my mind. Yep, despite my best efforts, that brotha just can’t do it. Consider it a shortcoming if you must, but I realize that he’s just human. My husband is actually human. Shocking, right? After all, didn’t he get the memo that marrying me meant that he needed to meet my needs without instruction? Okay, I’m exaggerating a bit. I never expected my husband to be a mind reader. As nice as it sounds, it’s not possible. I...

Is Breast Really Always Best?

“So, are you breastfeeding this time?” It’s a question I get often. Sometimes it’s coming from a loved one and sometimes someone I barely know poses the question.

5 Reasons Why Training for a Race Can Help You Get Unstuck

Three years ago, I was on my way to New York City–home sweet home–for something I never did in my hometown before.

But I realized that the really bad idea was not making a commitment to my health, so I decided to do it. After deciding to run in that race,...

My Kids Are Hating on My Fitness Goals… But I Will Not Lose

I love my kids. No really, I do. But I swear they refuse to let me be great when it comes to achieving my fitness goals. I call them my little haters. What?! You call your kids that, too? I’m not surprised. Through my work, I try to help women focus on living well. I think what makes me different from a typical health or wellness coach is the fact that look at everything through the lens of motherhood. I know that managing everything in your life is challenging when you have kids, so moms need simple solutions that work....

Moms: If You Feel Depressed, Please Read This

I have three kids. With each child, I was concerned I would develop postpartum depression. Thankfully, I didn’t. I felt blue for a couple of weeks,  but eventually, the sadness began to lift. But I know that isn’t true for so many moms. I know that the sadness often lingers for much longer than two or three weeks. I also know that many women struggle with depression long after the baby arrives. Depression doesn’t discriminate. It can set out to destroy anyone’s life at any point in time. And although I have never suffered from severe depression, I have certainly...
