Change My Body, Change My Life

I started running about 6 weeks ago. The first three weeks were a joke because there was nothing consistent about my “training.” In these last three weeks, I have become a lot more serious about things and I am slowly seeing results.  I have to admit that I am still nervous.  Sure, I completed a marathon, but that was in 2006 — 8 years and 40 pounds ago. Now I have some extra weight, older knees and two little ones that keep me on the move.  Trying to incorporate a decent training program into my life is no joke....

Is Your Marriage Suffering Because You Won’t Let Go?

Marriage is absolutely wonderful.  It’s also incredibly hard.  No matter how much you love your spouse, there will be rough patches—moments that you struggle to survive.  It’s inevitable.  Any couple that tells you things are always rosy either hasn’t been married very long, or they are lying. When you face challenges in your marriage, there should always be an attempt, by both parties, to make things right.  Maybe you need counseling, or maybe you just need some time, but giving up when things get hard shouldn’t be your impulse.  Efforts to restore things have to be made before you...

Humble & Hungry

Today was a regular day, but it was also a pretty exciting one.  Today, I made my debut on Disney Baby as one of their new bloggers.  I can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled I am about this opportunity. I love Disney and I live in a house with two kids who love Disney too (actually three if you count my husband). What made today amazing, though, wasn’t just seeing my first post on Disney Baby.  What made the day amazing was the outpour of love, support and encouragement I got from tons of friends on Facebook...

11 Tips to Help You Be Both a Good Mom and a Good Wife

Balancing a marriage and motherhood can be very challenging.  For many women, it often seems difficult to be great at one and still find the energy to be great at the other. And truthfully, the role that tends to suffer most is being a wife. I think it’s possible for us to develop a sense of balance that allows us to be great in both roles.  Is it going to be easy?  Definitely not, but I think it is very possible.  The mistake that most women make is giving too much of themselves in an effort to make everyone...

What Does It Mean to Get RADICAL?

I’ve had years in the past where I have boldly declared that it was going to be My Year.  When I said it I meant it, because I wanted to reach my goals and end the year feeling like I was on top of the world.  Unfortunately, I let life get in the way far too many times and I would always end the year feeling like I came up short.  Maybe it was a stressful job, maybe I wasn’t performing at my best because I wasn’t taking care of myself, or maybe it was the health of a loved one that pulled me away from accomplishing my goals.  It does’t really matter what it was, though.  What matters is that I let “it” take the lead and redirect my life. That’s not happening to me this year. What I have realized is that life happens, and no matter what my BIG plans are, life will just keep happening.  That’s the way it goes. So, I have entered this year asking myself, “can you really reach all of your goals this year, no matter what life throws your way?”  My answer is, “I absolutely can.  This is my year to get RADICAL.”  So what does it mean to get radical?  For me it means that I am on a mission to reach my goals and I am prepared to make sure...
