SAHMs are Not Meant to Think Straight
This is in response to a friend's blog that I read today.
I was a stay at home mom for 8 years. Even now, I only have a part time job 4 days a week while my kids are in school. So I still drop them off/pick them up/force them to do home... Read more
Saturday's alright for blogging

Clean body, clean mind. Yah sure, let's go with that.
I decided to bust out my clean eating challenge first thing in the week so I wouldn't have it hanging over my head. During the 100dts challenge, I have slowly but surely changed most of my snack choices to fruits and veggies, so I didn't think ... Read more
Mother's Day not Mother Nature Day
Yesterday evening, I went for a long hike up a mountain with my husband and two kids (7&5). The whole hike is up a service road that is used to check the antennae on the top of mountain. The road is steep, and made up mostly of loose rock. Two-... Read more
Heart Disease and My Clean Fridge
In my mid 20s, practically when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, I got a physical. Here is the exchange I had with my Dr.

Dr.: Do you have any idea?
Dr.: Do y... Read more
The Motivation Link
I just read the motivation article from the Nutrition challenge. What I realized is that I don't usually get too discouraged if I mess up, so I tried to figure out why.
First, I figured that I always just try to get back on track right fr... Read more

On this 7th day of the 7th week of the 100dts challenge, I decided to re-read the descriptions of what I was supposed to do this week. In my strength challenge I was asked to blog about what motivates me, but I accidentally sort of did that ear... Read more

Would You Like a Little Food with Your Salt?
I love salt. There, I said it. I add salt to a whole heck of a lot of things. I read the articles linked through the nutrition group, and I can hardly believe that 1500-2300 mg of sodium should be the daily limit for adults. Seriously, here’s... Read more
Learning something new every day
First, let me say that after I threw my shoulder out Monday night (before doing any of my weekly exercises at all), I decided I would just throw in the towel this week. Then, I realized that that might not be the most productive mind set. I co... Read more
