Connor, Two Month Newborn Update

How Much Exercise Do You Really Need?

As a former gym rat who thought I’d get “so skinny” if I ever ran a marathon, I can tell you that the more time you workout does not directly impact how much you weigh or how strong you get. It’s about training smart. This should come as a relief if you are reading this postpartum or […]

How much weight I have to lose isn’t weighing me down

It’s funny how things change in ways you never expected. I fully expected to be overwhelmed with two children but I’m shocked to feel rather stress free. Everything is a phase, I know that now. While both kids may be crying at times, Connor won’t remember and Tommy likely won’t either. One way I usually […]

When you have the same sex child for number two, you do not get another shower or a sprinkle. You do however get the chance to buy the things yourself that you wish you had registered for the first time. For me, this meant placing a focus on convenience and sleep. Before Tommy, we were […]

Do I have postpartum anxiety, anxiety or just typical parent concerns?

Postpartum anxiety is something I’ve mentioned in the past but never written a full blog post so here goes… Have you guys seen The Big Sick? Ray Romano’s daughter is in a coma for much of the movie and he has a quote that just stuck out to me. He says, “Being a parent is a […]

Working Out as Sleep Deprived Parent

I do not know how people exercise at 5 am in the morning. I really don’t. I feel terrible when I wake up that early. I guess you might get used to it and if you WANT to get up that early, you go to bed early. Unfortunately, I do a lot of my work […]
