Tia Mowry is on the Cover of Women's Running Magazine

I've been a fan of Tia and Tamera Mowry since their Sister Sister days, despite the annoying taunting I used to receive due to our shared curly girl hair do's when I was younger. It's been really nice to see both of their careers progress as well as their personal lives - I've been able to grow with them and now they both are wives and mothers just like me, so that makes them even more relatable. Tia looks fantastic as the cover women on the latest edition on Women's Running Magazine and her interview inside is very insightful....

Workout While Brushing Your Teeth with Fitness Flower!

For me, the hardest part about working out {other than actually doing it} is finding the time to do so. That may sound odd coming from a SAHM, but believe me, when you're dealing with a busy family {particularly a 3 year old that I have affectionately nicknamed Pig Pen}, it seems that even when you want to workout, there are a million other things that get in the way. That's why I was overjoyed to get the opportunity to try out Fitness Flower {provided for review}!

Join the Walkabout - A 28 Day Quest for Good Health!

I've discovered along my path to weight loss and better health, that the hardest {and easiest} thing to do is take that first step. After that, all you have to do is just keep going! Walking is one of the best and easiest things to do for your health and wellness and this spring Dr. Andre Weil and Vionic Footwear want to help you on your journey! {Product provided for review/consideration}

Regaining Your Pre-Baby Body (Yummy Mummy Fitness)

The battle to regain your pre-baby shape can be a tough challenge for any new mom who has gained weight during pregnancy {I've documented my struggles with it here}. New parents have a lot of demands on their time, even when they would normally be sound asleep. While celebrity interviews often claim that the weight ‘dropped right off once the baby was born’, many new mothers find that this is far from the case.

When people are tired, stressed and extra busy, they often turn to comfort or junk foods {raise your hand if you're a stress eater like me} and end up piling on more ‘hard to shift’ pounds. New mommies are particularly susceptible to this trap and often find that their self-esteem can plummet as they get further and further away from that target of fitting back into their ‘pre-baby jeans’.

So what can you  do?

A New Beginning: My Journey to a Better Me

I've seriously debated over whether or not to share all of this here, and even once I decided I would document my journey on the blog, it's been hard figuring out how and when to start. I don't know how much to share and what sorts of things will be of interest and helpful to someone {anyone} out there reading this. But I guess it's time to stop agonizing over it and just get to it...
