It’s the Start that Stops Most People

It’s a strange thing, to be re-starting my “fitness journey”. Not that I ever really stopped. I worked out my entire pregnancy, ate mostly clean (those pregnancy cravings tho) and felt good! But still…my body is wider, flabbier and heavier. I’m not saying this in an “I hate my body” type of way! On the Read More

I’m Not Good at Math

My whole life I told myself: “I’m not good at math.” English was fun because even though learning grammar was a drag, I got to write stories and there was some sort of interesting thread of language that I enjoyed.

Homeschooling: a Different Objective

I have been asked to share a little bit about my homeschool routine.

However, before I begin sharing WHAT I am doing Read More

Spinach and Sunflower Seed Pasta

This was one of those “throw everything I have leftover in the pantry” dishes that turned out AMAZING! I had whole wheat pasta and chicken breasts but I wasn’t sure how to make them tasty and it ended up being way better than I could have hoped! For this recipe, you will need: – Chicken Read More
