Clean Eating Pumpkin Cake

It’s no secret around here that I love my sweets, so when I got the idea to try a new recipe with my toddler each week…I was ALL for it!

Creating Space and Clearing the Brain Fog

Ever since getting home from our leadership retreat (more to come on that later hopefully) last week, I just can’t seem to get this thought of “creating space” out of my mind. I have always loved what I do as a coach and mentor, but for the last couple of months, I just felt like I was going through the motions and in a bit of a funk or brain fog, you might call it. One of our focuses on our retreat, though, was regaining our vision and really fine-tuning our process to be even more effective. And I just came home feeling like I had so much more space and clarity.

I know that I am not the only mama obsessed with doing big things and living my best life, so I decided I needed to share with you what I’ve been doing to make a little more space in my life. Now, I know that all probably sounds a little abstract, so just bear with me…I’m going to get to the practical, but first, how do you know you need a little more space?

Are you feeling frazzled and like you're constantly trying to clear the brain fog? Discover how you can create more space and live your best today.

Find Your Happy Healthy Mom Place

I remember feeling like I just didn’t know where I fit as a brand new mom. Everyone who came over would say the same thing…”Isn’t being a mom just the greatest thing you ever did?” And while I agreed with them, I also couldn’t shake the feeling of being an imposter.

I felt like a stranger in my own skin. I’d look in the mirror and see a body that didn’t look like it used to and that I wasn’t sure was ever really going to feel like mine again. And while I loved my new mama role, I also couldn’t help but feel like there had to be something more to life than spit up and holey yoga pants.

Do you feel overwhelmed? It's likely because you haven't created space for yourself. Learn to find your happy, healthy mom space with these simple tips!

Clean Eating Pumpkin Muffins

While I try to focus a whole lot more on clean eating and nutrition than anything else when it comes to food these days, there are just some connections I can’t help but ignore.

One of my fondest memories from this time of year is coming home to fresh baked pumpkin muffins on a Sunday morning when my dad had been staying with my grandpa after his stroke. We’d gather in the kitchen and enjoy them as a family as a fun way to reconnect and enjoy a little treat after having all gone our separate ways throughout the week.
