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?

This Nokia Body + Scale Is Off The Charts

If You Love It, Share It!

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with scales.  Years ago, there were many times, pre-kids, when I would step on a scale and rejoice.  Now, since I’ve had kids, I’ve wanted to throw our scales across the room.  I’ve returned more than I care to admit because I was convinced that they were broken.  Why else would it show that I weighed so much?  I was recently introduced to the Nokia Body + and well, I’m in love. The only thing I hate is that I didn’t know about it sooner.

Yes, Nokia is in the Health Biz!

Yes, Nokia, the brand that made my first cell phone is now in the health biz and I couldn’t be happier about it!  This Nokia Body + is so much more than a scale.  It’s a body analyzer with info on your weight, bone mass, water, muscle mass, and fat mass. It even gives you the weather!  This scale is off the charts! I’ve never seen anything like it and I will never need to shop for another one, because this one has everything I need and more.

You may know that my husband and I are rocking our new healthier lifestyle (yay us). We are quickly on the road to being full vegan and after only a month, we are feeling so much better.  In addition to eating healthier, we are focused on our activity level, so when I realized that this Nokia Body + has a tracker built in to the app, I was floored. Now that I have this scale, we can accurately track all aspects of our health in one convenient tool which helps us to learn about our bodies while we’re getting healthy.

Health Mate App

Ok, so let’s talk about the Health Mate app.  This app allows you view a complete history of your health data, all on your phone!   It can track up to 8 people and even has special modes for babies and pregnancy!  When you turn on your new Nokia Body + scale, it gives you a link to the app right on the screen.  Just download, sync to the scale, fill out your profile, goals, etc. and you’re ready to rock! One of my favorite features is the heart rate tracker.  Just place your finger on the camera on your phone and it measures your heart rate.  How cool is that?!

Not only is this Nokia Body + scale awesome, but it’s beautiful too, blending right into our decor.  It’s available in white or black to match any home.  Another great feature is the battery life.  It can last up to 18 months!

There really are so many things I love about this Nokia Body + scale. If you are in the market for a new scale or just want a great tool to track your overall health, I highly recommend this scale and encourage you to learn more about Nokia’s health products.  I know you’ll love them as much as we do!

    Nokia is indeed synonymous with mobile phones. I think most people started with Nokia phones. Good to know that they are in the health business. The Nokia body scale looks like a strong ally in the fitness regime.

    Being completely a vegan may not work for me. But congratulations to you and your husband for deciding to go this way! It is way way better to achieve a goal with a partner who’ll encourage you to continue when you feel like giving up and to applaud you when you are doing very well.

    Not much this scale can’t do. Getting programmed and using the app might be a challenge. Now if it could lose the weight for me

    I feel you on the love/hate relationship with scales. My oh my that Nokia Body + scale is gorgeous (who ever thought I’d say that about a scale?). I’ve actually been wanting to get a new scale so I’ll definitely have to look into this one.

  • Heather @ Kraus House Mom

    I need to get this scale. I’d love to know more than just the weight. I want to know what the weight consists of.

  • Amber Myers

    Wow, this sounds like a cool scale. I might have to get one of these even though I tend to avoid scales. So long as I can button my pants, I don’t panic.

  • Tia | Filtercrave
