When You’re Aware Something’s Not Right: PCOS Awareness Month

In high school, I once got a menstrual period so bad that I blacked out in class, got dragged to the nurse’s office by a classmate, and threw up in the principal’s private bathroom.  I never knew when my period could start, which meant I often bled through my pants in public with no warning.  […]

Where to Really Find the Time to Work Out

I was a religious morning worker-outer B.C. (before child). But A.C., the logistics of getting a tiny human and myself out the door, an unfortunately loud shower pipe that shares a wall with said human’s bedroom and swapping workout time with my husband keep me from the blissful 5 a.m. runs I used to love.

Nurture the Skin You’re In

{Photo credit: Anna Ligocki Photography} “Throwback Thursday” – ugh! It’s even worse as a hashtag: #TBT. Looking at old photos of myself is a blunt reminder that any ounce of style or grace I now have was hard-earned. Every old photo evidences past mistakes: barrel bangs, blonde streaks, flannel shorts, head-gear, awkward poses. Throughout my cringe-worthy judgment lapses, […]

Podcasts to Drown Out Your Ticking Mom Brain

I’m a runner. I used to proudly spend my miles headphones-free, thoroughly enjoying the sound of my feet hitting the pavement and the feeling of my brain emptying with each tap. Then I had a baby. Who turned into a two-year old. And now literally the second I get my running shoes tied, a gazillion […]
