Keep it moving all day long

Sometimes when my son and I are doing errands on the weekend, he complains that he is tired and needs to sit. I ask him why - especially if he has only been standing for a few minutes - but then I remember that he is in school now and he has become used to sitting all day.…

They are not charging me enough for this app

If you were to visit my house three weeks ago, you would have witnessed a fight that broke out in the bathroom every morning and every evening. It was the battle over the toothbrush. The catalyst for the fight varied by session, but always involved around one of the following:

  • My son wanted to brush unsupervised and would become incredibly upset over being told that…

My heart just can't take it

I still hate running.

I have my good days and my bad days; I have times when I am not getting out of the bed in the morning to run and those times when I am able to convince myself to run because it is the right thing to do. It is a daily struggle. But I try (oh so very hard) to stick with…

Adding on a vegetable

You come home from work and head straight into the kitchen. Within a few minutes, you are pre-heating, sauteing, chopping and seasoning. It's a Tuesday, you've put in a full day at work, and now you are cooking with purpose: You are trying to get dinner on the table before 7 pm.…

Keeping your eyes on the prize

I can remember my first pair of glasses that I wore at four years old. They were 1980s-style (too-big-for-your-face) with a little cluster of strawberries on the arms near the hinge. I have had very poor eyesight for my entire life. My wonderful husband, however, has excellent eyesight. And thankfully, our son seems to…

Food Temptations After Working Out

I'm being tested. But, I realized what my problem is. It's not mean friends or that I lack motivation, what I lack is a bit of self control. But I won't freak out, it's something I can fix as long as I ignore a certain friend!

As soon as I finished my trampoline workout, she called me. I heard her calling while doing…

How often are you sick?

Before I had my son, I got a cold around twice a year. It would annoy me for a few days and maybe even cause me to take a day off work to rest at home. My husband would only get a cold maybe one time a year.…

Drinking from the garden hose

Every summer morning, my brother and I would look at the thermometer near the kitchen door. If the thermometer said it was 74 degrees outside, then we were allowed to wear shorts. It was a big deal.…

Planning to outlast your partner

The other day I heard a comedian say that a successful marriage is when one partner gets to watch the other partner die first. Yes, that is pretty morbid, but it is also true: Marriage vows even state "til death do us part."…

How old are you really?

A few months ago, a couple of coworkers were trying to figure out my age. Eventually, one of them just came out and asked me. Several of them thought I was significantly younger than I actually am. I know this is not because of the way I look (I think I look my age), but rather because of the energy level that I have.…

The plantar fascia tissue runs in the heel, by way of the…

When your baby fat grows up

All mothers know there are two definitions of the phrase "baby fat." The first definition describes the extra roll of fat that clings to babies and is absolutely adorable. The second definition refers to those extra pounds that cling to a woman's body after she has the baby (and is considered much less adorable). Mothers usually blame their baby for their weight gain, and then try their luck at getting rid of it.…

How Women Can Use Muscle Building Supplements Safely To Maintain Their Health

If you are a woman who has reached the age of 45, you are more likely to lose muscle mass if you don’t do anything to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

5 Things People Ask Me When They Find Out I'm Married To A Gynecologist

I can see the pupils dilate and the wheels begin to turn when people find out that I'm married to a gynecologist. Paranoid as this may seem, I've answered enough questions and survived too many bizarre interactions to be caught with my pants down again. My husband commenced his OB-GYN residency two weeks…

The dangers of single parenthood

My Mom is an amazing woman (thanks, Mom!). And she is a tough woman: Being a single mom to two children while holding down a full-time job is a rough gig. Because she worked 60+ hour weeks, I learned how to cook and clean, as well as how to look after myself and get myself where I needed to go. I'm probably a more independent person today because of her.…
