For some reason, five didn't hit me as hard.Maybe because she will be learning about money in first grade so it FEELS real? Who knows.We had a simple day for her birthday.They day before, we had a playdate … Continue reading This is Six.
Two years ago, I wrote a post about intuitive eating. Since ending my meal plan with my nutrition coach, I've been back to following a more "intuitive approach" to eating while trying to keep a slight eye on my macros. You can read more about intuitive eating HERE. For this post, I am literally discussing … Continue reading Intuitive Fitness.
Last week I got sick. I had a small cold that seemed to come about Friday afternoon. After class that morning, the kiddos and I went home. We ended up staying home for two days straight. We seemed to have come down with a cold and everyone was sniffly and tired. Movies and plenty of … Continue reading Rest.
So I didn't get my groceries for the month under $450 as intended. My groceries came out to $452, which honestly I'm fine with. I will say I did focus on cooking more and also thought twice, if not three times on many purchases. If anything, had I not done the no spend month, I … Continue reading No Spend 2021 Recap.

One of the key points I learned last NSM was … Continue reading No Spend January.

With everything going on this year, I clearly wasn't using much of my wardrobe. I found that I started gravitating towards the same things every week; … Continue reading I Packed Away 50% Of My Wadrobe.
I put "day off" in quotations because let's be real, a mom's brain never just shuts off. On these days, you'll find me spending a good chunk of the time cleaning the kids room, doing laundry and just trying to do things that just take too long with the kiddos around. Each "day off" varies, … Continue reading Day In The Life: Mom “Day Off.”
I'll be honest, I used to get very angry when people would tell me since I was separated from my ex, I show now just focus on "myself." I had no idea what that meant really. I was too busy being angry; angry at my ex, angry at the world and angry with myself. But … Continue reading [Re]Focusing On Me.
