Growing up, I was incredibly shy. When I was 12, I was moved from private to public school and for the first time, since I was a toddler, had to make new friends. #ad While 8th grade prepared me a bit, high school was even harder since I only knew a handful of people there. I realized that in order to gain the confidence I was seriously lacking, I needed to become a part of something bigger than me. I tried out and made our high school’s dance team, the Titanaires, in 9th grade. Suddenly, that shy girl found herself. I continued to dance throughout high school and discovered the power of teamwork.  We all walked out onto that field the same, no matter how skilled we were, what we looked like or what our home life was like. We came together as a family and put on a show that always had the fans in the bleachers cheering. Being a Titanaire changed me. 20+ years later, I’m still really good friends with a number of my teammates. Now, as the Mother of three girls, I always encourage them to find something they love, practice and become a part of something that will change their lives as it did mine. Whether it’s volleyball, gymnastics, dance or soccer, I watch my girls transform each and every time they practice, perform or play. Did you know that between the ages of 12 and 13, the number of girls who say they’re afraid to fail increases by 150%? By age 14, girls drop out of sports at twice the rate of boys. That’s why @Athleta is committed to helping keep girls in the game. That’s the #PowerofShe.  #AthletaGirl #girlempowerment #girlsquad #girlsrock #womenathletes #womenempowered #womenempowerment #girlmama #girlmom #gymnastics #gymnasticslife #handstand #handstandpractice #novahighschool #novatitans #novatitanalumni #titanaire #letsgotitans

Yesterday, I posted my deepest, darkest secret on my blog. It look me 24 hours to get the nerve to share it on here. I’ve been writing that post for a while. It probably didn’t go live the day I intended it to and it might disappear at some point. But enough is enough. Time for me to put my big girl panties on and stop lying to myself and everyone else. I hope you won’t think any different of me or judge me in any way. I’m still the same person, I’m just not pretending anymore. .

As someone that has suffered with both anxiety and depression for many years, I can tell you that there are signs that your loved one is suffering. While not everyone who exhibits these characteristics is having mental health issues, it's quite possible that those who are, exhibit many symptoms as a result of their anxiety and/or depression. Today on the blog, I’m discussing those symptoms and what to look for if you suspect you or your loved one is suffering with anxiety and/or depression. .

#ad Let’s get real for a moment. While they play a large part in us becoming Mothers, periods are no fun. They also weren’t something that I knew a whole lot about up until a couple of months ago, if I’m being honest. But results from a recent survey got my attention.  3 in 5 women surveyed reported at least one symptom of heavy periods – and among those respondents, over half had not discussed them with a doctor (57%) Why? Most women have resigned to heavy periods as their reality, with 43% saying “it’s just normal for me” and 36% saying “I’ve just learned to live with it.” Sound familiar? I must have said those exact statements plenty of times over the last 30 years. 
You don’t have to “live with it”.

Thinking back to last month and our stay in that cute little airbnb, it makes me so grateful for the opportunity to blog full-time. Not only do I get to work closely with companies that I love, but occasionally I get the opportunity to take our family on a little, but much needed vacation. It really is the best job I’ve ever had. Today on the blog, I’m continuing my series for bloggers and influencers and discussing what might be the scariest part of this job… pitching companies and applying to campaigns. Head over and check out my suggestions to nail those pitches. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! .

Thinking back to last month...

Today I had a plan. Wake up early, get the girls ready for their first day of school and then take the perfect first day of school picture to post on Instagram, where I would talk about how bittersweet it is to watch my girls grow up into these incredible young women. 
But things don’t always go as we plan. Instead, Falynn and Iyla woke up at 3:30am, got ready for school and then came downstairs at 5:00am to let us know they were ready. 5:00am... two and a half hours before they actually needed to be at school. I rolled myself out of bed at around 6:50am, Super Dad made me some coffee and I quickly shooed them outside so I could take a picture and realized that Falynn was in a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, jeans and old sneakers. I’m pretty sure her hair wasn’t brushed either. Lucia wasn’t awake yet so it would be the first year without a first day of school picture of all three of them. 😫 Whatever. I was tired. So I quickly took a picture (swipe to see) and got them off to school. Lucia woke up late and I couldn’t take a picture of her because my camera lens kept fogging up. When we walked back into the house, the dog escaped, making her even later. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And my coffee’s cold. Anyway, since I couldn’t get the perfect first day of school picture, I hope you enjoy this shot of the girls and Super Dad in their @swimzip.

My girls are snackers. When they get home from school, they want to be able to grab a quick snack to take with them on the way to after-school activities, or to enjoy while they do their homework. #ad Peanut Butter is a huge hit in our home, but it can get messy, so when I found out about Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets, I couldn't wait to grab some. Instead of making a huge mess (and forgetting to close the lid) with a regular container of peanut butter, the girls can grab one packet and easily add it to just about anything. Some of our favorites are bananas, apples, pretzels, celery or crackers. They have fun creating new combinations and I love that they come in convenient 1.15oz squeezable packets. So much less mess! They are also perfect for their lunchboxes. The peanut butter is so creamy and delicious! BTW, they are naturally gluten-free! @windstonefarms peanut butter packets are now available at your local @walmart. Make sure to pick some up, and check out our stories for a special offer from Ibotta! What will you put #WindstoneFarmsPB on?

When it comes to my diet, I have no issues eating healthy, good for you dishes. My issues are a little more complex. First, I have a huge problem with choosing the right meal when we are at a restaurant. I think I’m choosing something healthy, when in fact, it’s packed with the very things I’m trying to avoid… I just wasn’t aware. My other problem, is finding new dishes that I can make at home. We seem to be stuck in a pattern, where we find one really great, healthy option and then repeat it so often that we get tired of it and resort back to the dishes that we know aren’t good for us. Just last month, I was telling Super Dad that we needed help! And like a wish that was instantly granted, we discovered HowUdish!

howudish, healthy eating, prodishstyles, dish like a pro, fitness, athletes, healthy recipes, restaurant options, nutritional value, favorite athletes diet, low carb, high fiber, vegetarian, vegan, app, healthy eating app, apps for diets, diet apps

HowUdish is a one-of-a-kind mobile “dish discovery” app and social network that connects users to dishes based on their own nutritional lifestyle. Their focus on healthy living truly sets them apart from simple restaurant locators and makes sure that HowUdishers can eat out, have fun, and stay true to their healthy living lifestyle whether at home or on the go.

When you sign up for the app, you select what type of dietary restrictions you want. So, in my case, vegetarian, high fiber and low-carb. The app locates restaurants in your area and provides you with the items on their menu that best meet your criteria, along with the nutritional information. Plus, at the bottom, it includes a recipe to create a similar dish at home! Love a dish? Swipe right. Not a fan? Swipe left! It’s fun and helpful.

Another part of the app I really love is Pro Dish Styles, which helps you find meals that fit within your favorite athletes diet. These Pro Dish Styles athletes all follow very specialized nutritional meal plans. So here’s your opportunity to eat like them, to achieve your goals! Whether you are looking to avoid red meat, sugar, carbs or inflammatory foods, HowUdish is confident that you will find that their athletes have a personalized meal plan that works for you and that you can easily draw inspiration from.


And they don’t stop there. You can also build a network of friends who share their favorite restaurants that match your nutritional lifestyles. With the app, you can chat and share the places you love to eat while discovering new favorites and find a meal that matches your lifestyle. It’s basically all you need to make the right decisions!

One of our favorite new recipes that we found on HowUdish is this peanut butter sandwich from The Lemon Bowl. It’s so easy! Just slice up an apple, 1/4 inch slices, core it, top one side with peanut butter, place another slice on top and squeeze just enough for the peanut butter to ooze out of the sides just a bit. Then roll each sandwich in unsweetened shredded coconut. My kids are over the moon for this and have asked me to make it for them as an after school snack, every day this week. It’s a much healthier version of a kid friendly favorite!
A healthier alternative to the peanut butter sandwich. This features apples, peanut butter and unsweetened coconut. So good!
HowUdish has so many incredible features, including:
  • Chat with other Dishers to help you stay on track
  • Share recipes, dish and restaurant reviews & healthy eating tips
  • Subscribe to see dish choices from top professional athletes
  • Match with like-minded dishers
  • Meet new people and chat about food & restaurants
  • Share your tastes & favorite restaurants

  • Choose from low carb dish styles, low calorie, vegetarian meal plans, gluten free, vegan & more
  • Discover restaurants nearby that serve meals fit for your tastes
  • Discover new places to eat tasty meals for any lifestyle

    I think this is a great app to have. I watch my diet not to lose weight but to keep my blood sugar levels in check. I love that this app would provide me choices for low glycemic index food. My husband would also benefit from this as he is trying to gain back the weight he lost post-surgery. He is supposed to have high protein meals to regain muscle mass. I am totally checking out this app.
