A Quick & Super-Yummy Pork Chop Recipe for Busy Days.


The summer days are packed! I am forever losing track of time and rushing to get dinner ready. Since I started my gut healing process, it is important to me that we don’t end up reaching for fast food.

It’s Summer! Time To Use That Fitness Tracker.


Hey everyone. I’ve been decluttering and outside with the kids a lot lately, so we have been pretty busy. Being outside has been put on hold for a bit since I am dealing with seasonal allergies!

My Pants Are Tight, I’ve Gained Weight….and Perspective


Omigosh, my pants are tight. I’ve gained weight. Not a big deal….just have to get back on track. Or at least, that is what I am telling myself. We read a great kid’s book the other day, (hang with me, it ties in) called Virginia Wolf. It perfectly explains the “doldrums”, as the author puts it. I felt that last…
