Interval Training for the Win.

OTF Cover Intervals

Being a former college athlete means I ran my fair share of sprints and miles.   My friends and I joke that we were on the track team when really we were on the softball team.   I’m sure my coach had her reasons for making us run but all I could remember was it […]

Just Hear Me Out- Part 2 My Diabetes Journey

Just Hear Me Out Part 2

Check out my last post here:  I have lost zero pounds.  Just Hear Me Out. “FINE!  I’ll hear you out,” I lied.  It sounded like the teacher from Charlie Brown whaa whaa whaa.  “I’m going to put you on med…”  I cut her off-No! All I remember doing is shaking my head and saying “No! […]

I’m not much of a Christmas Card giver but this year I wanted to send out a card to wish everyone a Happy New Year and let friends and family know that we moved. Like most moms, I don’t have a lot of time and Adoramapix could not have made it any easier.  I simply went to […]

During his second teeth cleaning ever, Dr. Maria told me my baby boy had a cavity and I was shocked! He’s only 4 years old!  You better believe that I brush his teeth like a crazed mama. She explained that to the naked eye, it’s difficult to see all of the grooves in his top back […]

Things can get out of control so quickly.  If I get a gift card or cash its spent within days.  It’s that time of year where the Christmas Club account is wiped out and the sales are never ending.  I need them to end because clearly I have no self-control. So here we go! I […]

I recently went to the NCAA Leadership Forum in Maryland and one of the required assignments was to watch the Ted Talk by Novelist Chimamanda Adichie called The Danger of A Single Story. I hope you will watch all twenty minutes of it so this post makes more sense to you.  I found it to be incredibly […]

You know the pair of shoelaces that just won’t stay tied? Somehow they Houdini their way out of a double knot and you have at toddler tripping over his laces every five seconds.  That’s every pair of my son’s sneakers and I’ve had enough. One day my son came home from school and said, “ […]

  I’m not sure who enjoyed this movie more, me or my 4 year old.  The colors, the music, the lyrics, the cast, the story line… What’s not to like? From the start of the movie we know Moana is a precocious, curious girl who quickly discovers two things:  she is inexplicably drawn to the […]
