Welcome to the land of #noexcuses, the place where if you fall, you pick yourself back up, dust yourself off and give it another go. For instance, I just reached for the tea instead of the wine. I also reached for the pie but that’s not the point. Continue reading
Grown-up snack wars. It’s a thing. It’s the battle that ensues in the middle of the afternoon when you’re hankering for something bad-but oh-so-good and instead convince yourself to be all healthy. Face it: reality bites. Or, rather reality snack bites.
Today I didn’t eat lunch for some reason — distracted, much? — so I’m feeling rather peckish. So now I find myself resisting the urge to throw myself into the bag of peanut M&Ms. But I won’t. Because adulting is full of these tough decisions. Trust me, I know the drill.

But you’ll have to watch my vlog (which rhymes with ‘blog’ — not ‘vee-log’ as I used to pronounce it) which is unedited and goofy. No spoilers here!
Truth be told, I am a big smoothie fan. In fact, I’m racking up the ‘frequent flyer’ miles for the number of times I’ve visited Booster Juice this summer. But going ‘green’ in my own kitchen, well, that’s just a whole new bag of spinach. Continue reading
I get that this window of time between after-school and dinnertime is fragile — kids are tired after a long day of exercising their brains, they’re crabby and hungry. But I feel like there has to be a secret to making the transition from school to home a little more FUN and a little less FML. Continue reading
