Control the Controllables

A major factor in the current situation that has me (and most people that I’ve spoken to) so uneasy is the lack of control and uncertainty.

What the F@#$ is Perimenopause?

I have vague memories of my mom going through menopause just as I was entering my teens…oh the sweet memories of doors slamming one moment and the next we were crying side-by-side while watching 90210 and Party of Five Together on Wednesday nights.  (I’m pretty sure my brother and dad were conveniently golfing a lot that year…).

Asking for help

As I was in the parking lot the other day, a woman asked me for help jumping her car.  As I sat there in my car waiting for her battery to turn over (it didn’t unfortunately), I thought to myself, we need to ask for help more often, we can’t wait until our proverbial battery is dead…

Mind the Gap…Diastasis Recti

Diastasis Recti Abdominus means a splitting of your rectus abdominus, or your “six pack” muscle. Let’s face it, it’s a scary term and there is a ton of bad information on the internet about it and hundreds of gurus trying to sell their easy quick fix for it.
