Today marks the 16th week of pregnancy for yours truly. We were exceedingly happy last Tuesday evening to be able to hear our little one’s heartbeat. A more precious sound has never been heard.

Mom Fitness is all about staying healthy while getting it all done as a mother: cooking, cleaning, feeding your family and running the household. It’s important to stay healthy as a mom, and it’s one of the things I’m most passionate about.
I stay healthy through eating healthy, and I want to teach you that you too can get on track with healthy eating! And you can feed your family healthy food too. But it doesn’t have to be a total chore. There are great ways to incorporate superfoods into your diet, and so many tricks to using whole foods from the garden.

I haven’t really talked about fitness much on this blog. Maybe mentioned running a time or two, but that’s all. As of today, that’s going to change. Gabriel and I are kind of fitness nuts. Not major fitness obsessed protein-powder-and-supplements nut, but just mildly nuts. We enjoy working Keep Reading
2013 is going to be a big year for our family in so many ways. But the one that trumps them all is, oh yes, a new baby! We’re going to find out what life with two kids is like. Garrett’s going to find out what it’s like to be a big brother. I’m going to find out what a second labor and Keep Reading
Today, I’m thrilled to present a guest post by Paula from Wholeintentions.com on why we women should consider switching away from our chemical laden, feminine paper products. This is an issue that doesn’t get a lot of attention because of it’s personal nature, but that doesn’t mean we should ignore Keep Reading
