How To Stay Healthy As A Mom

Getting fit and staying healthy as a new mom can seem almost impossible when thinking about it. However, it CAN absolutely be done. It’s not as easy as it was before becoming a mom, that’s for sure, but it’s not impossible. First thing I want to remind all of you mamas – self care and taking care of yourself is SO important. I know that when you become a mom, your kids come first. However, I truly think when you...

How I’m Coping As A Newly Single Mom

First of all, my Mother’s Day was perfect. I went to the gym and did a quick workout and no one was in the gym – it was beautiful. My mom and I then went to a super cute coffee shop for coffee/tea and a quick lunch. We chatted, hung out, and then stopped off at home goods. After that, I picked up Grayson from his dad’s house, brought him to mine, went to the pool, and just had such...

One Year of Motherhood & Why I Love It

Happy Mother’s Day to all you incredible mama’s out there! It’s crazy to think this is my second Mother’s Day, and one that is a little bit different. Last year, I had just become a mother.

How Therapy Changed My Life

The first time I saw a therapist I was about 10 or 12-years-old. I remember a lump forming in my throat as my mom was telling me that I was going to see a therapist. My stomach dropped and my heartbeat got faster. I started crying hysterically and throwing a fit, doing anything I could to get out of going. I was clearly acting out of fear and I don’t know why, but I was terrified of it. I thought...

First Birthday PAWty

Grayson’s first birthday party was a HUGE success. My mom and I planned it, and we seriously want to start a party planning business! She is a designer and so great with the creative end of things. I’m great with the business and social media side of things. We’d make a pretty great team 😉 Obviously we had a PUPPY THEME. We have two dogs, and my mom also has a dog, and he is obsessed with them. They are...

GRAYSON JAMES: 1 YEAR

WHAT IS LIFE. I have a toddler. Where did my baby go? Grayson is truly the light of my life. I have never loved a human more than I love him (although I do love my mom a lot, too). But seriously, a mother’s love for their child is indescribable. Grayson is also SO happy. He has the best personality, is hilarious, and just so much fun to be around. He is extremely social and loves seeing people and being...

Five Ways To Be More Productive

Working from home and for myself makes it extremely difficult at times to actually get.shit.done. Even if you don’t, sometimes it’s hard to stay productive and finish all the tasks you need to. As an entrepreneur, everything is up to me, and I have no one keeping me on my A-game. There have been a few times where I wasn’t getting anything done. I would sit down to work and just blank out. I couldn’t stay focused, I’d open up...

Five Ways To Practice Self Care

Self care is something that got lost a little bit for me after becoming a mom. This is extremely common unfortunately, but after dealing with some bad anxiety and realizing that I sort of “lost myself”, I have made it a huge focus of mine the past few months. There are so many ways to practice self care, and a lot of them revolve around things that are relaxing, make you feel good, that make you happy, and more. Here...

This is extremely unfortunate because muscle is AMAZING! First and foremost, muscle is the FOUNDATION that you need to get the physique you truly want. When you go to build your dream house, you need to build the foundation that allows it to...
