It didn’t work… but it’s not the end

To all the people who spend time exercising and eating well only to not see a shift on the scale or maybe the number bumped up. All the effort given but the goal is still out of reach. All the work put in but it still didn’t make a difference. The disappointment that hits when…… Continue reading It didn’t work… but it’s not the end

Keep it Simple

Consistently keeping it simple is how I maintain a wellness lifestyle. For years I told myself I just didn’t have the time or energy to eat well, exercise, sleep, maintain a relationship with God, or even really maintain relationships with other people. But what I stumbled upon, was I making everything way more dramatic and…… Continue reading Keep it Simple

Sustainability

Sustainable, I was told this is a coin word. Sustainable means to be able to maintain a certain rate or level. I will confess, the pace I have been running for the past few months is not sustainable. I can see this being reflected my physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. In an effort realign…… Continue reading Sustainability

The massage therapist told me…… Continue reading What the heck is Self-Care?

We made an appointment with my pediatrician which then lead to an EKG (electrocardiograph). Of course, nothing was captured on that EKG. I was told to stay away…… Continue reading My Heart Story

Under Pressure

Last week I took my little girl for her 3 year check up. As a part of the check up, the medical assistant put a tiny little blood pressure cuff on her arm. And like my curious little girl always does she asks “Why?” At 3 she asks why about everything. I try to answer…… Continue reading Under Pressure
