This Pregnancy Has Made Me a Bad Mom and Spouse

While I’m forever grateful to be carrying a perfectly healthy baby and having a healthy pregnancy I can’t help but feel bad about my mom/wife skills, or the lack thereof. Despite all the good, there is a darker side. A side of me that I don’t like, that keeps making her presence known day in […]

4 Reasons Your Diet is Failing

It’s ironic. Those who ‘diet’ the most, are often those who struggle with their weight. Those who just relax and eat are those who we call ‘blessed with a good metabolism.’  Maybe we should take a hint? “An estimated 45 million Americans diet each year and spend $33 billion annually on weight loss products. Yet, […]
